Feeling Cheered Up!

This is me...today....it was windy out!


Today I was ready to go to the gym at the same time Joe was ready to go to school. Joe looked at me and said "You are getting so skinny! You are almost as skinny as me!". Although he couldn't know it I just really needed to hear that today. Things here are stressful (as usual). I like to eat when I'm stressed. It helps to hear little tidbits of encouragement. I'm still plugging away with Weight Watchers. I really like it and it's working just great for me. I've lost 18.4 lbs now. I'm down to a size 12 jeans (and they fit great! Not too tight) which is 2 sizes down for me. At my skinniest time when we were living in Balmoral I was wearing a size 8 or a 10. So, I'm close. I've really struggled to get into a good groove with exercising. I've always really loved to exercise and it's strange to be losing this weight without it. But, I'm really gonna try harder to get to the gym. I don't do well running in the cold so I think I'll wait til Spring to run outside. I went to a class this morning...a weight lifting class and it was FUN! I just don't realize how much I love and miss it til I'm there enjoying it. It was nice to see myself in the mirror too and not be totally irritated with myself. I have lost weight...I do look better and I for sure feel better!

Yay for you! I've totally fallen off the exercise wagon and can't seem to get back on. I need you and Lia here to go to aerobics with me! Keep up the great work, you're my inspiration!!!!!

KIM! You look so good, you are BEAUTIFUL!!!

Deb said...

You look great! Keep up the good work. Hopefully I can follow in your footsteps!

Lia said...

Way to go!!! You look beautiful!! Don't you just love weight watchers?!! I always wanted to yell it from the roof tops!! "IT REALLY REALLY WORKS!!" The best part is that it's a life long change!! It's not so stringent that you can't maintain. If you can't work out for a while, or if you go to a party, it's okay!
You look great and I look forward to seeing more progress reports. Come see me and show me how this running gig is really supposed to be done! You KNOW you can run me into the ground!

That is so amazing. And you do look great. And no matter the size you are always beautiful. Lauren the other day looked at me and said "Wow you have big, huge buns." How's that for encouragement?

Keep up the great work, Kim! It's always good to have those unsolicited moments of encouragement, isn't it? You are looking wonderful!

Whoa! Good for you girl. I tried WW once, but gave up very quickly...it wasn't hard, it was too darn confusing. I need something though, that's for sure. It's always a big boost when someone tells you you look "skinny".
