I am very proud to report that I didn't eat even ONE piece of Halloween candy this year. Yeahh! I wish this was due to superhuman feats of willpower, but it was rather the lack of exposure to said sugary badness. For some reason, the gods of weight loss were smiling upon me and set not a single piece in my path! Luckily, too, we don't get trick-or-treaters here, so no need to buy that shit and have it in the house! Bonus!
The scale is still stuck on repeat, as expected. Yay. But, I am working out, eating well. My cupboard ransacking hunger craze yesterday only resulted in me eating a 250 calorie meal-replacement bar, so it could have been worse!
Oh, and check out this coolness. Today at the mall the husband and I were getting lunch, and I was across the food fair from him (went to Subway and tried the flatbread- and Jessie's right, totally tasty!). When I got back to the table, he says to me, "You know, I didn't see you over there at first. I looked right at you and didn't recognize you from behind! It wasn't until I saw your Beatles bag, that I realized it was you. You look so THIN!"
I just looked at him with this big smile. What a cool thing for him to tell me! He's said before that he'll just look at me and almost be stunned at how different I look. I love that he constantly tells me that he has always thought I looked good. :) Mega brownie points for him!
I also did something rather impulsive today. I have not been able to wear earrings for quite some time now. I decided in my 20s that I didn't like my ears, or the way earrings look in them. I let the holes grow over and haven't really thought of it since. Today, I saw some cute earrings and thought, hey, I kinda wish I could wear these. Now, I coulda gone all hardcore and just shoved those suckers onto my ears....but I'm not so big with the self-inflicted pain. We decided to just search the mall for an ear-piercing place and do that shit right.
(Hint: check out the ear)
I should be able to wear different earrings by x-mas. Helloooo Christmas presents! I have to say I wouldn't have done this 40 lbs ago. My feeling is that it's confidence. I am feeling WAYYY more confident in how I look these days, so it seemed silly to me to be hung up on my perceived ear-flaws when I just wanted to wear cute earrings! Jason said he's noticed a definite increase in the confidence area. I would say this is a definite NSV!
Here's to a good week...full of healthy food and exercise!
