Day 49 - Someone FINALLY Noticed - Kind Of

"Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going." -- Jim Ryun

Well, I had to lose almost 25 lbs, but someone today (finally) seemed to notice I've lost weight - in a round about way.

A neighbor asked if I had lost "a few pounds" or were those new jeans I was wearing. (Both, actually.) LOL Yep, that was it. But hey, I'll take it!! Even if no one else notices, I do.

I think I am going to start keeping a water log. I know I'm not consistently getting 8 glasses in each day. I'm not doing poorly, but I can do so much better.

The diet today (for lunch) calls for a hummus and veggie sandwich. Didn't feel much like a sandwich today, so I just made some vegetables instead (carrots and beets). I'll have some hummus on pita "chips" for a snack later, if I'm still hungry.

I'm doing well by not eating to stress. I think I will list that as an NSV.

Well, day 49, and someone kind of noticed that perhaps I lost "a few pounds" ... sweet!


  1. That's great someone noticed! So nice when they do. It took me losing over 60 or 70 before anyone said anything! But it's nice when it happen! Good for you.


  2. Sounds like a couple of NSV's there for you. Feels good when NSV's appear doesn't it? Well done!

  3. Yay for somebody noticing!! I'm still waiting.....perhaps if I were to stop wearing all the baggy clothes it would be more obvious! Keep up the good work!

  4. Yay!! That is just about the best NSV there is!

  5. Hey Ann...that's pretty sweet! I've gotten a few comments here and there, but I'm like first steps clothes are so baggy it's hard to tell. Keep up the great work, girl!! ;-)

  6. I was just thinking about that today. I have had to give up wearing 2 pair of pants because they were so big. No one at work has said anything. I just figure that I am so happy they didn't say anything when I gained weight, so it's okay they are not commenting now. :-) Glad for your compliment! Way to go!

  7. gotta like that, keep going, your worth it.

  8. Wooo Hooo!!! It feels so good when someone notices!!!
    I have trouble with water to. I think it's 8 6 oz glasses right? Measure how much water your glass holds, mine holds 12, you might be surprised to find you're getting more that you think? I would only have to drink 4 of those instead of 8 :)
