comparison - then vs now

um, ok - wow!! I guess my scale was really broken

Yes, my scale was really broken.  All this time I am thinking I am stuck at 243 - that number I thought I was on a plateau at 60 pounds?  Well today at the doctors office, I realized that my scale was broken for sure.

GUESS WHAT!!!!!?????   I broke the 240 mark.  In fact, I am currently at 236!!!!!!!!!  YUP, you got that right!!!  SOOOOOOOOOO HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No more plus size shops

After I realized I could fit into a 16, I wanted to experience shopping in the "regular" sizes.  So, here is a skirt I found.  I also bought a few other things.  It was exhilarating going in and not taking a left to the plus sizes and shopping in the misses.  WOW

latest picture

Unfortunately, my scale broke!!  So I have no idea where I am.  But, I kind of like the suspense.  All I know is I put on this outfit today and it fits perfect.  It was snug a month ago.

Thanksgiving on Belviq

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  I had a great day.  Usually the holidays are a challenging time for those like me who struggle with weight loss.  The temptations are enormous and so are the calories.  Fortunately with the Bel-Phen combo, it was not a challenge at all.  The only challenge was to eat.

So, eating smaller portions have become the norm and my family is pretty used to it.  So, as a "joke", my brother decided to make my plate.  He said that this was all I eat anyway

What's an interesting dynamic about this "joke" is, I was always at the end of all of the fat jokes.  For example:  I piled on the food on my normal plate.  About 1/3 of the way in, I said, "My eyes are bigger than my stomach".  Normally, my brothers would jump right in and make some kind of comment about how big my stomach really is.  But this time, my brother's response was "apparently so, did you even eat?"

It's just nice to know that I don't have to worry about what others think about how much I over eat.

Oh - and I forgot to say, I lost 3 pounds this week!!  GOOOO ME!!!!
