Officially weighed in at ediets this morning: 240.5 I entered. Then went to bed and slept all day. Upon waking, I have officially hit 240 even - 45 pounds lost! Yay!
By the way, this week's weight loss pushes up my expected goal date a week - now it's October 10. That is, of course, if there are no more plateaus or bounce-backs. And, hmm, I have a weekend family reunion this weekend where I'll have to eat on my own recognizance for 3 days! Yeah, we'll see what that does to me.
Funny how just last night I blogged that I couldn't really see the difference. Then last night I was sitting in front of a mirror and was shocked rather suddenly by what I saw. Without really seeing the itemized changes, I just saw that my face was pretty again! My eyes seemed bigger, my smile bigger. One of the things that drove me to start the diet was my frustration at how smiling just seemed to make me look ugly and sad with the specific way my face clumped up in a smile, and how my cheeks overwhelmed my eyes and mouth. It was terrible - smiling should make you look happy and pretty! This is definite progress that I can definitely live with!
