Hope's Weigh in Wednesday

What an awesome week!
As you'll remember, last week I was up a pound.
Well, the next day, I was back down.
That's the funny thing about weight. It fluctuates so much.
Just because you're not where you'd like to be, never give up.
It WILL happen with some hard work and perseverance!!
This week has been so crazy.
I have literally watched the numbers
drop and drop and drop on my scale each morning.
Not only that, but I went shopping for an Easter dress with my husband on Saturday (nothing like waiting until the last minute) and it was so much fun!
We went to stores that I haven't been able to go into for over 10 years!
I even got a little emotional when I tried on a dress style that I have always loved and it looked great on me!
And no more extra larges.
I tried on larges this time and they all fit!!!
So this morning I got on the scale and, are you ready for this?
I lost 4.5 lbs!!!
And even more exciting....I'm in "ONE"derland!!!!
197 baby!
Overall, I am now down 25 lbs. since January!
Slowly, but surely! :)
I don't want anyone to think I am not doing this the right way.
I have been eating normally, although I added some salads,
veggies and fruit in my diet this week, along with water, water, water.
I knew Easter brunch was going to do me in
if I didn't watch it the rest of the week.
So my food choices, along with working out,
seemed to pay off for me this week.
And my mom's sausage fondue casserole
was so worth the sacrifice :)
{Me & my precious family this Easter. I am blessed.}
