Confidence? What a new feeling!

It seems I am constantly being suprised by this journey of weight loss that I am on...

Confidence...something I haven't had for a very long time...but lately I am finding myself some.

I weigh 202 today. Down 76 lbs. I haven't weighed under 200 since high school. When I went off to college at the age of 17 I weighed like 205, and was in size 18. I am now smaller then when I was 17. My husband has never seen me weigh less then 205...till now...My dr asked me yesterday when was the last time I weighed under 200, and thats what got me to thinking about all this...

It's amazing what this weight loss has done to my confidence. I find myself not hiding all the time. While at camp last week with 400 high school kids...I joined in all the activities. I wore shorts without stressing about it. I was active..and participated...instead of hiding....I find myself being more outgoing. I am dressing in clothes that accentuate my body...rather than hiding it. I have actually even started tucking my shirts in and wearing a belt..which I never ever ever did before. It's an amazing feeling...and I am loving every minute of it!

Confidence? Yep, I am starting to have some!!


  1. Woo Hoo!


  2. That's what I am looking forward to the most - CONFIDENCE! Can't wait to get it back.

  3. Wonderful! I totally know what you mean! What a fantastic journey we are on. Keep it up! :)
