Do you remember Oprah's "Ah-ha" moments?


Well, I had one today...huh..waddaya know..

Yep, I have been doing well on my weight loss plan, but some weeks when I think I've done REALLY well by my standards, I go in and will loose but a half pound or so..

"Hmph.." I say to myselves, "I thought we did better than that.." ( I always include all of the me's when I speak...)

Then yesterday I was feeling quite slim...in trying to figure out why I was feeling so good, I discovered it was because my jeans were quite baggy and my "muffin top" was a "reduced-fat muffin top"... Oh Yay!

Well, DUH. I was still waring the jeans that became too tight 39 pounds ago and prompted me to Weight Watchers in the first place...

Goofus.

And now they were loose.....and comfortable...and a little to "confidence building" if you know what I mean.

Today I put on a smaller pair...didn't have to lie on the bed to zip them or anything, however, they are snug...just snug enough to be a bit UN-comfortable...and that's a good thing. I'm now not so flippant about the possibility of just one M (as in M&M) or just ONE more cookie...

I'm not ready to invest in a new wardrobe yet because I'm only half way there, but I can go the a thrift store and pick up some inexpensive finds in a smaller size so I will keep on top of things..but.....I'm gettin' there...






Ah-Ha....

Gotta love that Oprah...

Absolutely! One must keep up with the wardrobe when losing weight or all is lost. And one must remember that because you now "feel" heavier in the tighter jeans is a very GOOD thing. You look amazing! You're doing a fantastic job!

Btw, I have been having many Oprah Ah-ha moments lately. Things are changing in the world all around us and it
