Holy Cow!

I had weigh-in yesterday and was SHOCKED at the scale...in a good way! I lost 3.0 pounds for a total of 38.2 pounds! I haven't lost that much in a week since week 7's weigh-in. I am only 6.8 away from meeting my 45-pound mini-goal for our Chicago trip. We leave in 10 weeks so I'm not too worried about making goal. I'm not going to change it yet, but I'm thinking that I might be able to lose 50 pounds by then!

I am really starting to get compliments from people. It took losing 30+ pounds before they started noticing, but last week I had a lot of nice comments. I think it helps wearing pants that fit rather than my old "fat" pants. =) I wore a pair of dress pants last week to work and had 3 people tell me I was really looking nice. Then at WI yesterday, I wore a new pair of jeans (size 16) and a lady at the meeting said that she can really tell I've lost a lot and that she's been meaning to tell me. That was a huge NSV for me.
I bought a new pair of khaki pants yesterday at Steve & Barry's. It's nice being able to shop in "regular" stores again. I'm hoping to go get a couple more pairs later today. It's going to be too nice to wear the corduroy pants pretty soon, and plus they are really big on me now.

That's all for now. Check out the updated progress chart below.
