So it is officially the end of the 7th week that I have been exercising and eating better. When I look at the number 7, it doesn't seem that big, but when I look at the difference I have made in my own life, it tells me more than any number. Always remember that non-scale victories are sometimes more telling than the number you see on the scale.
To cut to the chase this week...Last week I weighed in at exactly 127.0. This week I weighed in at 126.2 lbs. I feel a little strange. This is the weight I was when I entered college 4 and a half years ago. This is the weight that I would automatically tell people I was, even when I knew I wasn't. I haven't kept track of my weight since then, besides doctor's visits, but I think that I am proud of myself. I've lost 9 lbs in 7 weeks because of a few significant lifestyle changes. A few months ago, the idea of changing my life in this manner seemed hugely impossible. The idea that I could maintain the changes, even if I could make them in the first place, seemed ridiculous. But I'm doing it and it's the best feeling ever.
I like the waistband :)
