Week 26 done - 14 to go

I have to keep checking my calendar because it is so hard for me to believe that we finished 26 weeks of this little diet pact!  I am in awe of what we have accomplished!  I have lost 40 pounds yes 4 tens, 8 fives, 40 pounds!

While I was shopping for clothing (because everything is too big muhhahahahahhhhahaha!) I realized that all of my clothing was very plain.  Not that there is anything wrong with plain.  Most of the things in my closet are 1) solid colors 2) darker colors 3) no patterns anywhere!  I have been thinking about it and wondering if I was consciously choosing clothing that allowed me to fade into the background or was I just trying to hide? I just don't know. 

While shopping online I still looked at Eddie Bauer and I'm loving their stuff!  And to top it off when I went shopping, I strolled through Lane Bryant and had absolutely NO desire to buy anything! I kept looking at it saying, "I own too many of these kinds of shirts!"  and since I can now shop in a REGULAR store (can you hear angels singing? I can!) I left feeling really good about my successes this year!

I can't remember the last time I had so much fun shopping for clothing! let me repeat: I had fun shopping for clothing! ::chuckle::  AND I looked good in my new purchases! woohoo!


  1. Awesome Job!!!

    It really doesn't feel like 26 weeks. I don't feel like I'm killing my self. I'm down 28 pounds in 26 weeks, WOW! I'm only 2 pounds from my original goal. I'll be the same size I was when I got married.

    When I get there I'm going to pull out my wedding dress and see if it fits.... I'm a little worried. After 2 kids even my chub is in different places. I'll let you know how it goes when I get down 2 more pounds.

    I'm so proud of us!!! We are doing great!

  2. WOW, you are doing so well, so amazingly well. I am proud of you and I'm proud to be your follower. Starting the first week back at school I will be starting everything back up on a regular basis and with the new wii I'm hoping it'll help me reach my goal.
    Thank you for stopping by and your kind comments. I wish I had someone to bet with...hummm, wonder if Kim would be intersted?
    Take care and God Bless!!
