3 way mirrors don't lie and my weigh in day

I did a lot of clothes shopping this past week.  I would just like to say, 3 way mirrors don't lie.  Don't get me wrong I am happy with my success so far!  That being said, I have a long way to go.  I learned that I am NOT a size 14 yet.  I am a solid 16.  The size thing drives me CRAZY!!  It really depends on the brand.  It's funny though, I have been feeling pretty cocky about my svelte new body so imagine my shock when one of the ever-so-helpful store clerks mentioned my "trouble areas"!  Trouble areas?  The nerve!  I'm really just joking here because I know I have them and frankly I will still have them when I get to my goal weight.  In the poor lady's defense she was only trying to help.  We talked about our body image in our WW meeting this week.  It's really all about becoming happy and at peace with our bodies.  In the quote from the weekly WW newsletter "losing weight makes you look good in clothes, exercising makes you look good naked".  I had to agree with this of course but also that the end result (after we reach goal weight) may not be a perfect body and we have to be OK with this.  Weigh in was great!  I am down 2.2 lbs this week for a total of 27.6 lbs!!  I am so happy and it's been a steady decrease ever since I started this journey in January.  My son's Grade 12 Graduation was last night.  It was very nice and he looked so handsome.  Pics to follow!

Happy Graduation to you son!

I love that WW quote. And I've had the same thing happen with store clerks when I've been shopping - I wanted to say "lady, you have NO IDEA how happy I am to have only THESE trouble spots!" - eye of the beholder and all that, lol. You are doing great - congrats on another 2.2 pounds gone!
