Today I went out and got my hair cut and highlighted. I haven't had it cut in quite some time. I actually went to a real stylist and not the local 7 dollar school where you have students working on you. The reason? To celebrate.
The scale finally moved. I went down 5lbs this week which brought me where I've been wanting to be for a LONG time. I finally hit the 100pound loss mark. I've been siting at 90-95lbs loss for quite a while and just not able to lose that last 5-10 lbs to make to 100, but I finally got there. I still have 100 more to go to get to my goal, but I am half way there now, and feeling so much better than I did. I've gone from a size 34 womens pants to a size 20 womens pants. A size 4X womens shirt to a 1X womens shirt being slightly loose.
But, more important than the clothes fitting differently is that I feel so much healthier. I may not have the perfect diabetes diet, I'm not convinced there is a perfect diabetes diet. I do have the perfect diabetes diet for me.
If there is anyone who doesn't think it can be done, believe me it can !!! It takes perseverence and will power. (and good soups along the way)
