Happy at the scale! When she left and I changed into my
gown, I weighed again 165 lbs
I had to wait for my Dr for a bit but when she came in she was so happy to see the new me! She wanted to know all about what I have been doing and how I feel now. She wrote me a note to change my goal weight at WW to 165 lbs. She agreed that is a sensible weight for me. She told me what my weight and BMI was at my last complete physical (which I think was in the fall of 2010). I weighed 226 lbs and my BMI was 36. I am exactly 60 lbs lighter and my BMI is now 26. I thanked her for her advice over the years that had finally sunk in. She has always told me "it's the food". Whenever I told her I couldn't exercise for some reason or another (always an excuse) she would tell me it's about the food. She was right. When I started this journey I couldn't do anything. I was only 1 week post surgery with my ankle tendon repair. I lost the first few months without doing any exercise. I just changed the way I ate. Of course now exercise is a very important part of the equation but it's not the main thing.
I left her office walking on air. She has nagged me (in a kind, supportive way) to lose weight for years and finally I showed her that I could do it. What a great feeling!
I bought two dresses recently for our trip to Arizona / Las Vegas. The Arizona trip is a business trip for my husband and there is a couple of events that I will need to dress up for. I didn't even own a dress that fit me anymore so I needed a few. I also had no summer clothes that fit so I had to buy some of those too (not that I minded!). Here are the dresses. Excuse the crappy cell phone pictures.
|Dress #2 - Calvin Klein - pic doesn't do it justice it's beautiful , ruffle down front and fits perfect!|
