Starting to notice

Well Monday morning and I figured I should post a little something.

There are a few things I am starting to notice. The first is not as good financially. I am going to need new shorts for the summer. I think I have 1 pair that look alright. The rest I am swimming in. Good sign, but it will be costly. I guess I knew it was coming, but I was hoping that maybe I could get away with it for a bit longer. I guess next weekend might be spent trying on clothes ans making a trip to the Salvation Army.

The second and third I had begun to notice a few weeks ago but kinda did not think a lot of it until last night and again this morning. My brother mentioned something about when he lost some weight the he felt better in the car. Granted my brother is nowhere near my size but he is almost as tall and from time to time he will fluctuate up and down about 25 lbs or so. When he mentioned this it really brought to light how much better I "fit" in my truck now. It was never a huge issue and never uncomfortable. But I just feel better now. The other is somewhat related and is more personal and public. I have stopped requesting a table at restaurants. 5 months ago I had trouble in booths. Sometimes it would be fine and others it would be a very tight fit. Well I went to dinner with my girlfriend and a couple of friends last night and was really very comfortable in the booth. That was a very nice feeling.

So thats about it for today. I will check in with you all tomorrow after weigh in. It will be 16 weeks on WW. They do something special once you get to 16 weeks. I guess it is because they feel like your beginning to make the lifestyle changes necessary to continue on throughout your life at that point. I will let you know what happens and how it goes.

Those are great rewards, aren't they? My favorite thing about weight loss is just feeling more comfortable as I go about my day performing normal activities. And congrats on sticking out 16 many people never make it to that mark!
