Weight loss, sizes and what I've learned

Happy Thursday!

Boom! 137.2

Weight:
It comes on a lot quicker than it comes off. I'm being a very consciousness eater and I'm drinking tons of water. However, I'm slowly building my muscle back up, so I expect my weight to increase. Weight loss never happens over night. Don't compare yourself to where someone else might be at was the best advice someone gave me!


Clothing Sizes: 
I have never before experienced shopping the way I have as of recently. Currently, I'm fitting in a size 6 pants, but they are getting too big and I'm going into a 4! I haven't seen a size 5 since I was in middle school! I could stay right here and be completely happy, but my BMI continues to read over- weight. 
First XS skirt! SCREAMS!!!!!  I'm fitting into small shirts! Dresses are now size 6 & 8, depending on the dress. I just had to go buy new dresses for my sisters graduation! Honestly, sizes are sizes though-- remember, YOU'RE the only one who sees the tag.

What I've Learned:
Weight is a number on a scale. Clothes whether it be a size small or a size large, both sizes are equally frustrating to find. I used to be able to find a ton of clothes, but now as a smaller person, I'm having a difficult time finding clothes that fit my body. 

I've also learned, I feel healthy now and I'm not looking to drop more weight. I'm afraid I'm going to get "too skinny." I also can tell the weight loss has helped with my running and I hope it helps my pace because I don't have so much to carry. At this point, I'm happy because I feel HEALTHY! Health is important to me. Numbers on a scale don't matter, unless they reflect health. I was already BEAUTIFUL!



Q: When do you feel healthy?
