The 17 Day Diet Update #3

I do have to admit to a couple cheats over the week-end.  Had a couple glasses of wine, which aren't allowed and I have to admit, I stagnated for a couple days.  Got myself back on track yesterday.  Followed all the rules and got in a long walk (about 4 miles) with Krissy and the kids.  Today my weight loss is at 6.2 pounds.

My pants are too big this morning.  They keep sliding down to my hips.  Can I tell you how awesome this feels.

For the first time, in a long time...I recognize my old self when I look into the mirror.  It's hard to explain and I know I've been very, very lucky most of my life.  Things didn't start to change until my late 40's.  Slowly...over time, I've just been getting thicker and thicker around the middle with an explosive muffin-top creeping over all my pants.  I see picture of myself and I can't get over how much bigger I am. (yes..it is subjective)

Now I am no where near my old weight, which is OK.  I know I won't get there again as that was just crazy, but I'm closer to where I want to be.  I just want to feel comfortable...with only a teeny tiny muffin-top.
