Changing and feeling great

Alright, other than the mental meltdown I had the past few days, I feel GREAT. There are things I can do now that I couldn't do even two weeks ago. Here are changes either I have noticed or Gary has noticed:

* I have the energy to take walks. Used to be getting to and from the car could wind me.

* Gary says he's noticed my butt has more definition.

* I can see my toes if I lean slightly over.

* When I look down, I see my boobs, not my stomach!!!!

* The heat isn't as hot anymore. What I mean by this is I used to be hot no matter what. A room could be 50 degrees and I might, just might, be comfortable. Now, I get cold easily. This makes my family so much happier. It also makes Louisiana easier to bear.

* My wedding ring doesn't dig into my skin. It slides on and off.

* I can bend over. Actually bend over, not squat.

* The seatbelt fits better.

I am just so happy. Lately I've felt a bit more sick to my stomach than usual, but I think it's just my stomach getting used to being so small!

Tomorrow is weigh-in/picture taking day!!!

This is a great list of things many people take for granted. I'm glad to know your ring goes on better now. That, to me, would be the cherry on top.

I read this list out loud to Oliver, and he's like, "Wow. That's great." We love you!
