Progress At Last

I have finally seen some movement on the scale!  I am so relieved that all that suffering wasn't for nothing.  The three pound loss was just what I needed to motivate me to work harder.  It doesn't hurt that I ordered some swimsuits that should arrive soon provided the East coast weather doesn't screw things up.  I had forgotten how good it feels to get that first drop on the scale.  I really don't think it was just the illness, I have been working harder and paying more attention.  At least I'd like to think some of that played a part.  Now the trick is not to get cocky and back slide.  I think we've all been there a time or two too many. 
It feels so good to look forward to things and to have positive thoughts.  When I was in pain I couldn't see the bright side of anything.  I couldn't even look forward to vacation.  I realized the other day that it's been over two years since we took a real vacation.  I am so excited!!!
