starting to see

Sommer took my feb picture for my weight loss mini book....and for the first time I really seen the loss.....


and other people are finally starting to notice too..I remember I read somewhere that if you're larger, it takes about 100 pounds until people start noticing that you're losing...plus I like the baggy clothes...which hides what you're doing too...but when I look at this picture, I see it...it's funny I noticed that even my necklace seemed longer probably because my neck is smaller....it feels good!! I went shopping yesterday with my friend miki....she has a fashion bug going out of business in her area, and they had some "amazing" deals...!! and before I went I decided to try on my size 22 jeans...I've been saving...and they fit easy...could this actually be happening?? could I even be in a size 18 someday!! can't imagine.....I realize that I still have size issues...with shirts that I think are going to be to small and then they fit...I guess you still see yourself the way you were....and then the fear of gaining it back...trys to sneak in too...'cause I know it happens...but I don't feel deprived...and I know there is no magical...cured date!! Oh well enough "weight" therapy...today!!! Tomorrow my sleep apnea mask is getting delivered...the guy on the phone said I sounded really excited about it!! thought that was funny....I guess I am not looking at it as a bad thing , but as a good thing "for now" that is going to help...me and I look forward to feeling better....Okay I have to run to the gym.....but I really need to scrap!! but I also need to get my pretend house ready for the sleep apnea guy........ Oh and Miss Ali!!!! thanks for the donation......!!!!!!! and I love who you dedicated your donation to....who is this hot mama..you talk about??? ha,ha!! thanks girl....I can't believe I am only $50 bucks away from reaching my goal....thanks to you all....

Hi Staci,
I've been a lurker for a while but I just wanted to say that you look awesome! Keep up the great work. Also, I love your scrapbooking pages - I wish I could pump them out as fast as you do! *grin* I use a lot of them for inspiration when I get the chance to sit down and scrap.
Have a great day!
Veronica

You look fabulous! Keep up the good work. Pretty soon you'll have to get your rings resized because they'll be falling off your fingers.
