11 Pounds Gone!!!!

Alyssa and I shopping...she is a nut!!!!!

I have been on Nutrisystem for 1 month today and as of this morning I have lost a total of 11 pounds...YES!!!!!

This has been an amazing journey, I am losing the weight but GAINING self discipline and confidence. Yesterday, I spent the day with my daughter in La Crosse. She helped me shop for running shoes and an outfit for the 5K race. We went to TJ Maxx and I tried on some running shorts and I also grabbed a few skirts while I was at it. I have NOT wanted to try on anything like that for about a year or so because of the weight I gained. To my surprise, the running shorts fit and so did the skirts. It was so fun to feel normal again, to acutally want to go into a fitting room and try on clothes. I have always loved to shop, but lately I can actually say I have HATED it. I think I better start saving now for my shopping spree as I head toward my goal. I warned my husband ahead of time this shopping spree would happen so he is well prepared....he is such a sweetie!!!!

Speaking of my husband, he has also been running on the treadmill and watching what he eats and he is down 10 pounds. Not that he has much weight to lose, he is a skinny minny. He was starting to get a tire around his middle as he called it and he had enough of that. But like I said before, we have both gained weight since our move to Rapids and I am proud to say that we are both working hard at getting rid of it.

As you can see, I added a weight loss ticker to top of my blog to track my progress, I think it's cool!!!!!

Today my plan is to head to my sewing room and finish up a few dolls and pillows I have been working on. I will have to say that I have not sewn much this week. The house needed a good cleaning and sometimes you just need to take the time and deep clean so that's what I have been doing. Have a BLESSED weekend everyone.....until next time....Rhonda
