I have OFFICIALLY lost ten pounds.
10.4 pounds, to be exact.
It may not seem like a lot but I’ve been struggling to lose weight for years and never broke the five pound mark so I’m THRILLED to have finally made some progress.
I’m going to reward myself with a day of pampering with my sister.
That’s right, I’m going to Reno to visit Lisa.
We’re scheduled to get facials and then enjoy a nice dinner out.
Once upon a time, my sister and I were not that close.
She was a hippie in high school and I was a nerd.
We didn’t understand each other.
Add to that the fact that we were ALWAYS together (in the same grade, drive to school together, share a bed on vacation together, etc.) and we sure fought A LOT.
Lisa liked to throw things at me and I liked to break her stuff.
It’s changed now, especially since she lives in Reno.
She’s far enough away that I don’t get to see her on a regular basis.
So I’m SUPER excited that I’ll get to see her in a week and just hang out.
How times change, no?
We’ll see if she can tell that I’ve lost weight.
I personally think I need to make it to twenty pounds before people start to notice but the other day a coworker stopped by my desk and asked, “Have you lost weight?”
I considered joking and saying, “I’m wearing black, which is a very slimming color” but instead I said, “Yes, I have.”
Yes, I have lost weight.
Yes, I’m feeling better about myself.
Yes, yes, yes!
It’s incredible how happy weight loss feels.
I could get used to this.
P.S. In case you’re wondering what I’m doing to lose weight I am walking and following a ketogenic diet.
