The Proof Is In The Pants!

In case you haven't checked out our other (Toni & I) weight loss journey blog lately, I've lost 18 lbs. in the past 3 months! 18!!! And the proof is in the pants :)Just 3 months ago, these capris were very tight on me. Now, I have to wear a belt with them & I have to pull the belt tighter than before :) I'm a shrinking woman! LOL I also haven't been able to wear the shirt that I have on in the picture in quite some time as it was always tight in the sleeves.
I haven't gone out to buy any new clothes yet, other than a swimsuit & lots of work-out clothes, but I may have to soon. Jim said that my butt is really baggy in most of my pants, lol. I'm even wearing spandex type work-out pants because all of the other ones make me look like I don't even have a butt anymore! Now if I could just lose the hips that fast!
While I'm at it, I might as well post my 3 month picture, too & yep, I also got my haircut which I needed done badly. You can see the side view on my slideshow on the other blog over there ----->

Cass is coming home tomorrow, so we have to make a 4 hour drive (2 hours each way) to pick her up. It'll be good to have her home again, although it sure was quiet here this past week. Maybe going through the empty nest syndrome won't be so hard afterall ;)

We went to look at yet another house today (actually, two more houses) & we really like the first one, so now we're just waiting to see if it's going to work or not. Only downside, it's in the town we used to live it, which means it's a little further from the gym, but not too bad. It has a library (or should I say 'scraproom', lol), beautiful kitchen with cherry cabinets, 3 nice size bedrooms & the basement is in the beginning stages of being finished (all the studs, insulation & plumbing for a full bath is in place). I'll be sure to update when we find out whether or not we're going to get it.

Have a great week :)
Benita

Great job on the weight loss Benita. You should be very proud of yourself. It is sooo hard to loss weight. What a great feeling that must be to put on a pair of pants that are way to big now. You have really inspired me to get moving on my diet and exercise.

Woohoo! Keep up the great work. :) I've recently bought a few new pairs of shorts & pants b/c of the "baggy butt" and wow was it a great feeling. Definitely hit those end of summer sales and treat yourself to a couple of new items. You deserve it!

That is SO AWESOME! Having to buy new clothes because the old ones are baggy is WAY better than because they didn't close!!! Keep up the great work! Thanks so much for your kind thoughts about my Dad. He is doing much better!!! The prayers are working!!!
