Update: doctor's appointment

I just got back from my appointment. In hindsight, I didn't wear the most flattering thing today. I only realized it at work when I saw myself in a full-length mirror. My favourite shirt is too big for me now and the skirt I wore no better. And because they're both dark, you can't make out my outline let alone see any definition. I looked big because my clothes are too big!

Needless to say, my doctor didn't notice right away but you can bet your bottom dollar that I mentioned it! Ha! She's very happy for me and excited at my progress. She said she could really see it in my face but couldn't tell because of my clothes. She became even more excited when I asked what I weighed at my last physical. I had a sneaking suspicion that I weighed more than when I started Weight Watchers and I was right. I was 211 lbs last summer. This means I've actually lost over 35 lbs (she rounded it up to "almost 40 lbs" which I like better, haha).

Wow. Although I could've taken that and thought, "OMG I WAS FATTER THAN I THOUGHT, I SUCK!" I'm taking it more along the lines of, "wow, I'm doing awesomer than I thought!!!!" Plus, it explains why I look a lot bigger in my before pic compared to my progress pic.

As tempting as it is, I'm not going to change my stats though. I lost those seven extra pounds somehow but it certainly wasn't with Weight Watchers. Anyways, I know this post is technically scale-related, but because of my clothes and my doctor's kudos, I'm labeling this one a solid NSV!
