NSV... a goal achieved!

Tonight I tried on my 'Inspiration Hoodie' and IT FIT!!!! It is a little snug but definitely wearable. The weight has not been coming off as fast lately but all my clothes are fitting looser and I am starting to see some muscle definition from my hours doing weights at the gym. I am so excited - it is so true that the number on the scale is only one reflection of my success.

So while I was in the closet with my hoodie I decided to pull out the one pair of size 22 pants that I kept (for comparison sake). I put them on and of course they fell right off. Sometimes I forget that I was ever that size - the changes are so gradual that I often don't register a difference when I look in the mirror. So I decided to lay my new size 15 (regular not plus!!) jeans on top of my old pants - this is a visual that really showed me just how far I have come.

I know I have a long way to go still - but tonight I am going to celebrate what I have accomplished and then write out a menu for the next few days so I can have a great WI on Wednesday. As soon as I WI my DH and I are headed to Vancouver for 4 days. I have a work meeting one day and then we are going to spend the rest of the time doing some Christmas shopping and hanging out together.
Thanks for sharing my NSVs - hope you had a fantastic weekend!
