Apparently I'm fabulous

So yesterday I changed into my walking gear a little early so I could apply sunscreen before heading out. Two of co-workers commented on how I looked skinnier (got to love the stitching on technical shirts). Then later my friend and I headed over to Running Room to park our bags and we ran into a friend from our half marathon training group. She immediately commented on my losing more weight since she saw me last.

It's so weird how that happens, it doesn't seem like the scale is moving but your body shows changes. Today again I got the you look skinnier comment because I was wearing a new skirt that fits instead of all the stuff that's slightly too big and therefore baggy.

I'm taking this momentum and running with it. I've now come up with rewards for weight loss goals which I've never tried before. This is what I've come up with so far and is subject to change depending on what I covet more.

160- a pair of birkenstocks (the cute kind with 3 bands and bling buckles)
150- Ipod Nano
140-Professional colour and highlights

140 would be my WW target but I think BMI wise my personal goal will be about 10-15 pds lower than that...we'll see when we get there of course. 30lbs already seems far away.

Tonight I'm having dinner with a friend I haven't seen for a while. I have what I want to order already planned out. Today at lunch my two colleagues had to buy, I went with them but was very good and stuck to the sandwich I had brought with me....yeah me!

Apart from that not too much to report today.

Hope everyone has a great day!

I think those are great rewards! I have no doubt you can get to your goals.

I love those birkenstocks - great choice! I like your idea of tracking triggers too - i should totally do that!

doesn't it feel great when someone notices all the hard work you've been doing? and i can totally relate to the 'wearing clothes that actually fit me' thing, funny how you can look 10 pounds lighter when there's no pleats and elastic waistbands... teehee... your goals are great, too - i have a nano and use it everyday while working out... :o)

You look fabulous, and you ARE fabulous, so there!

And good for you for planning your eating in advance! I hope you had a great dinner.
