Happy Monday Thoughts

Some happy weight-loss related thoughts this Monday:

I no longer am double the weight of my almost-13-year-old twins! They weight just over 100 lbs. and I'm under half of their weight.


I ran into someone at the store on Friday who used to walk regularly at a gym I went to. We commented on how we haven't been there in a long time, but I said my reason is because I have been going to the gym at the base. They both himmed and hawed about how they just got busy in the summer and hardly go anymore. It felt good to know that my not going to that particular gym since last spring was only the result of my changing gyms, not quitting my exercise. How many times have I been those ladies in the past? Lots.


My slip is getting so big that it hangs and buckles under my skirts. It's starting to bug me, but it's also a fun reminder that I'm losing weight!!


I only want one candy in my stocking ( a Reese's PB tree) and no more. My husband has agreed to do my stocking this year. (yay for him!) The fact that I'm not drooling over how much candy I can buy and eat is another sign of change in my healthiness attitude.

I'll stop there for today. I hope you're week is off to a good start. Maybe you can take a few minutes to stop and jot down some happy thoughts about your weight loss journey this week. If you feel you don't have any, then pick one unhappy one and see if you can turn that proverbial frown upside down.

That's what this is all about - one day at a time, one step at a time. Have a good one!


  1. Every year I ask for the same candy for my stocking. It is a particular brand of milk chocolate made locally. YUM! Last year at this time I was regaining weigh (yes, yo-yo again) and my husband got me 4 different packages of that chocolate! Wayyyy too much. I actually recommitted to eating well right after Christmas and gave the candy away. This year, I don't want him to get me any but hadn't told him yet and I figured out he already got it. Have not decided what to do about it yet - splurge or avoid.

  2. Yeah for a non-scale victory (the slip!) and for having DH do your stocking this year.

  3. Hey hey! Nice to see your progress! Nice work!

  4. Some how I missed this post earlier this week Leah!

    One step at a time, Amen!!!
