And it makes me feel good, both mentally and physically. I have even taken to measuring my food at home. Last night I made a mean pot of spaghetti with Italian turkey sausage, and it was seriously amazing. So seriously amazing that, usually, I would have eaten two helpings, thinking it was one. But not last night — I measured and actually felt good about eating a healthy dinner with a small salad.
I am anxious, in a good way, to step onto the scale this week. My clothes are already fitting better, and I have a lot more energy. I started taking a new medication for sleep earlier this week, and it has made me sick a few times — has also made me not so hungry. I don’t think that’s necessarily a good thing, to use it for weight loss, but it helps that it’s not one more medication that makes me eat everything in sight. I don’t know if I will stay on it, though, because it’s not helping me sleep, which is the point, right?
It helps me sometimes, to find an outfit that I think is really cute that I can hang a dream on, so to speak, for once I have lost some weight. I am really liking these shrugs from Lane Bryant:
- Crop Length Shrug
So, these are some outfits/styles that I look forward to being able to wear, that I would be COMFORTABLE wearing when I lose some more weight. And I have a ton of clothes in my closet, as well, that will fit after a little while and I will just be walking around so SUPER-HOT everywhere, that Dr. Love will have to start beating up every guy that tries to hit on me. 😀
