I had my rings resized from an 8.5 to a 6.5! Whoo hoo. I enjoy shopping now. I still buy a lot of stuff at Goodwill but I'm getting so close (3 lbs!) to my goal weight and then I will "invest" in some new things -- but truthfully I'm getting really good stuff at GW -- Ann Taylor, Ralph Lauren, Talbots, etc....they rarely had those in the plus section when I needed it.

I can wear regular boots, no wide calves needed. My shoe size has gone down 1/2 size too. And I got an updated headshot for work and I really like it! My kids have also told me that they "don't remember" what I looked like before and that makes me happy. I notice that I am not as reluctant to get my picture taken as I used to be -- my "goal weight award" is to get our family portraits updated! Looking forward to planning that in the very near future.

Best NSV is not to make the dreaded resolution to lose weight in the new year! I don't know why but that fact had me in tears on New Year's Eve....

I had 2 people I hadn't seen in a while today tell me I was looking good and they could see a Weight loss. Now usually my mind goes " Don't I always look good?" but these were 2 people I respect very much, if they can see it, I am gratified. A very small NSV, but I am encouraged to have bigger NSV soon. And I may be doing something good after all and I'm going to keep on toward my target weight.

I'm up for adoption! She sounds like my sister who recently told me ..."Man, you might lose your boobs entirely!"

I've got a couple of necklaces that fit around my neck now that didn't before.

I've lost 15" in 3 weeks since surgery.

I'm down a clothing size already.

My face and neck look thinner.

It just occurred to me that I haven't had to buy new work shoes in years - I used to wear them out about once a year, sometimes less.

I walk longer/faster than everyone I know/meet without trying. I have a new urgency to get places (on foot) because my feet and body no longer hurt when I walk now...

This means so much to me. I didn't even realize it until children were tired of me 😂.
