34 Pounds and 17 Inches

Time for a progress report as we enter the 3rd quarter of this year.  Last weekend I had dinner with some friends (a family of four) whom I hadn’t seen in far too long.  I believe we last got together around New Year’s, just before I started this public journal and made myself accountable.

After setting down my purse, the words out of my friend’s mouth were, “Wow, Lisa, you look great!!”

Admittedly, this made me smile something huge and I quickly said, “Thank You!!”

(Yes, the dialogue was spoken with emphatic exclamation marks.)

We were interrupted and I needed to go get something.  Our conversation ended there.

Besides my own mother and my boyfriend, this friend was the first person to mention noticing any difference in my appearance.  [That is except for Jen who noticed a difference between when I first met her in April and during our cruise in June.]

Turning Back the Clock: Weight Loss and Pride

P.S. I've lost: 34 pounds, 3.5 inches off my hips, 3 inches off my waist and chest both, 2.5 inches off each thigh, and 1.5 inches off my neck.  No wonder clothes aren't fitting.  I'll eventually have to go shopping.  ;-)
