Finding Me Mondays...Not a lot of weight changes, but plenty of gains!

When it comes to weight loss, I have decided that sometimes it's not the numbers on the scale that tell the whole story, but the size that you purchase in your favorite store on your favorite cut of pants that truly matters!  I may not be in a size 12 in every pair of pants, but in Ann Taylor LOFT Julie pants, I am now officially in a size 12 and they aren't like suck it in tight, they actually fit!  I bought these pants to wear to Bloggy Bootcamp in Austin this past Saturday and ran into a few women I hadn't seen in a few months that actually read this post (at least every once in awhile)!  They actually noticed the changes in even if it's only 10 pounds or so, it is really making a difference in how I present myself and dress myself (at least I'm starting to think so)!  Yea!  Okay, so I still have a long way to go, but after a full week of travel, Bloggy Bootcamp, and finally back at home, I'm just happy I haven't gained weight over the past week!

Since the list was getting long, I'm going to start posting a link to the long list and just include the previous week and this week's weigh-in every Monday!  (Long list June 21st (203.5 lbs) - September 13th (194 lbs))
Last weigh-in: September 13th/September 26th - 194lbs, Size 14
October 11th - 191 lbs
October 18th/October 25th - 192 lbs (totally okay with being up from the 11th, but ready to gain control!)
As I've said every week though, regardless of my current weight  and how I feel right now, I am still hoping that by next June, I will still be able to reach my goal of being able to keep up with my kids and husband and wear the red dress that hangs prominently in my closest (it blocks all my pants) so I have to look at it every will continue to be my motivation!  I get tired of being the one behind the camera every time and am ready to be the one in front of the camera (smiling) more often!  I don't want my kids to wonder what I looked like when they were young!

Join me in the journey of finding yourself, whether it's weight loss or something else by linking up below! We could all use some support!

What a precious post. Way too often we let the number on the scale dictate to us our self-worth. You know how I know this...well, if you get a chance, head over to my blog @ Jeremiah 29:11...and click on my page "Weight Loss Journey"...and see how far the Lord has brought me!!! HOPE you have a week full of NSV's...non scale victories!!!

Congrats! I think fitting into a pants size is a better indication of weight loss than a scale (b/c who knows how much of the gain includes muscle) keep up the great work and your goal is wonderful--you can do it!
