And So It Begins

Brought to you exclusively by Dual Mom on
Maybe it’s the pants I’m wearing. Maybe it's the knee high boots. Perhaps it was because I was almost at a full run in a rush to get coffee and get to a meeting on time and that made me look all sporty like. Perchance the moon is in the first quarter and the stars are aligned just right. Whatever the reason, it has happened, I got my first random, spontaneous “You’re losing weight” today………..

And damn it feels so good.

That is great! No one has said anything about it to me yet, so I stand in front of my husband every night going "Do I look skinnier today?" LOL

wow! that brought tears to my eyes! i can't wait to hear those words from someone...anyone. i will probably grab them, lick their face and dry hump their leg. so...i hope the person that finally says that to me is someone i am either intimate with or someone that i would like to be intimate with. otherwise it could be, well, you know, a little awkward.

LOVE IT! Way to kick ass. I do think I should start working out, I know I suck for not working out yet, but I really needed to mentally prep, and get the ol' diet plan in works before I added in any insane work out plan.

The boots, let me tell you do WONDERS for your self esteem! I love mine. Proud that your kickin ass, skinny bitches look out!

Alright! Way to go chicky! My husband tells me he can tell, and my daughter's dad actually told her I looked like I'd lost weight, but those are the only two who noticed so far, and I'm actually REALLY surprised the ex noticed.

To quote more than one person here: Wooo HOOOO! It's one thing to know you've lost the weight via the scale, it's another to have a random person (and even your spouse or family) acknowledge that it looks like you've lost weight. It makes it more real somehow.

Way to Go!

my favorites used to be: "wow you look like a starving ethiopian.." or, "you look sickly...", or the ever favorite, "are you going to faint?".

Now its all like... "oh you've gained weight." "wow, your thick." "your umm... filling in...." or my favorite. "your looking robust."

damn.
