There have been no victories on the scale for me lately, so I've had to find success in other areas.

Like the fact that I can finally do 10 burpees without throwing up.

And the fact that the size 14 jeans that I recently bought are fitting just a little bit better. (read: I no longer have to squat to get them on, a simple wiggle will do)

People are commenting on how much more weight I've lost. Which, by the way, how do I respond? 
"I actually haven't lost any more, but thank you"? Or is a simple "thank you" enough?

And the fact that right now, as we speak, there is a bag of Reeses Peanut Butter Cups on our kitchen counter (from when I made these for a bunco party) and I'm actually thinking of not even eating one.

Oh, and Made to Crave ? Changing everything. Just so you know.

I think its great to look at other areas where you're also being successful. Way to go on the burpees, those are hard

Love it! I had to look at other successes too since it's taken me 10 weeks to lose 5 pounds. I read in a book that we need to look at successes in our head and not just the scale (ie: the little decisions we make each day that are huge victories in changing our lifestyle). I have been trying to do that. So glad you're liking made to made so much sense to me too. She's a great writer.

P.s. I got my 25 pound award at WW this week! Finally!
