It's a nice feeling.

It’s almost three months since I’ve started this blog, and the changes I’ve made are immeasurable. I noticed another one this morning. I put on a cute black and white lace top, and JC told me she loved that shirt, and maybe I should wear it to this fancy baby shower I’m going to on Saturday instead of today (it’s for a former co-worker, and a couple of current co-workers will be there). I thought she had a good point, and put on a different top instead. Then it hit me – I wasn’t worried about what to wear on Saturday, I haven’t given it a thought until this morning. Before, I would have obsessed for a month prior over what would possibly look good on me, and become depressed because I realized I didn’t really have any options. Just cover myself up, and try my best.

It is so FREEING to not worry about what I will wear. I have lots of cute clothes that fit me right now. I’m far from my goal weight, but I still feel good about myself again. I’m looking forward to this shower at a beautiful place (Giando on the Water in Brooklyn overlooking the East River), and looking forward to socializing. I’m not dreading it because of the way I look, or how embarrassed I am of myself. I have a lot more to go on this weight loss path, but I’m enjoying myself along the way.


  1. Being able to fit into the closet again is definitely wonderful motivation! Congratulations on three months :)

    Great job staying motivated and keeping things in perspective!

  2. This is the best post ever!!!

    I love that you said you are enjoying yourself along the way. Too often people think losing weight is a long and horrible task and use that as an excuse to not get started.

    Have fun enjoying the fruits of your labor!!!!!!

  3. I have to agree with Jenn. So long I was focused on the end goal, and saying, "THEN I'll enjoy myself." I've found along the way it's worth enjoying while you go. Congrats on 3 months!!

  4. I'm with Jenn and Rae Rae, it really is great to see you having fun! You're doing good and should be enjoying yourself.

  5. I agree with everyone else, the journey can be fun in itself and definitely keeps you motivated rather than focusing only on that last goal. Awesome!

  6. I am so happy that you are enjoying yourself on this journey. I am new to reading your blog, but so far I am loving it. That is a lesson I still need to learn. I haven't lost much yet, but I need to allow myself to have fun now instead of waiting for goal. Thank you so much for your post.
