Non food rewards

I've had a few days enjoying the fact that the weight loss is starting to show, I needed some new walking trousers and on trying the size I thought was be fine the assistant suggested they were too big and directed me to another size down. The logical side of me knows this brand is a generous cut but I still felt v pleased! This prompted me to a treat of new smaller pjs, at last satisfaction that lasts longer than a chocolate bar!!!

I've then been having a clear out of clothes I have no intention of growing back into.....

My weight loss has been slow and steady but with the support of this forum I am really believing that I will get to my goal- into the 10 stones, 3 stone to go-and 2017 will be the year I get there. Onwards and downwards for us all.😀😀

Last week I walked past a full length mirror in a shop and thought, ooh she looks nice in that; I truly didn't recognise myself! It was a very surreal experience and I can only think that it must take a while for us to adjust to a new mental image of ourselves when we lose weight. It's such a lovely surprise to go down a dress size or two without us even noticing it! I hope you enjoy your walking and lounging around in your new smaller pjs. Slow and steady does the trick and the 10s aren't as far away as you think x

Yes, trousers are a real milestone aren't they. Last evening I met a friend for a drink (lemonade - we were driving) and she said I was looking trimmer. All down to my new trousers in a smaller size. Yahooo! Thing is - I feel reluctant to part with the larger ones just yet as Christmas is looming...

Would keeping the bigger size be giving you permission to get back into them??

Glad your efforts are being noticed, a good feeling. 😊😊

I think you are right. I shall certainly be trying to not undo my efforts, but oh dear the road to Christmas is paved with tempting traps. Having said that, I have twice had cake recently (social events) and did not really enjoy them, lost the taste for gooey stuff. So maybe it will be OK. If I send the bigger trousers to the charity shop straight after Christmas I shall feel so good about it.

Thanks, it is.

However the mind plays tricks and just as I'm enjoying the benefits of losing weight I'm having a struggle to stop snacking!! I haven't given in and hoping that the struggles get less frequent ........
