16 weeks! 1/3 of the way through a year!

So yesterday was 16 weeks for me. Wow! A 1/3 of the way through my first year of weight loss. I remeasured myself and I'm 43 inches down! That is almost 4 FEET! What the heck?! That amazes me! I got on the scale this morning and it read 315.9! Down 2.2 from Friday! I usually weigh in on Fridays, because I know that weekends can be rough on me for eating. But I'm down!  I ate more than usual on Sat. and Sunday too! My trainer thinks I need to divert from my usual 1000 calories a couple times a week, not go crazy but add a few calories to keep my body guessing is how she puts it. WOW! I'm getting so excited about saying GOOD FRICKIN' BYE to the 300's. But then I'm faced with getting through 200's! Its a double edged sword isn't it? I want so bad to never see a 3 in front of my weight again but the thought of how hard getting through the course of the 2's freak me out! How long is that going to take?  But 8 weeks ago I posted about how 8 weeks is about how long I USE to stick with a diet. I've doubled that! WOO HOO! 
I had a few NSV's this weekend. I started out wearing a 26/28 depending on the pair of pants. My MIL told me to go buy new pants because mine were becoming baggy. I went to my local Catherines about 2 weeks ago. I grabbed a 26 and a 24 and went into the dressing room. Slipped on the 26, no problems, but a bit big. Slipped on the 24 and FIT! I was thrilled! Decided that I was only getting one pair of jeans because then I would need to really work and get into smaller pants. At the checkout I saw how cheap the jeans were. They were on sale for $14.99! So I got brave and bought myself a 22 and a 20. So this weekend I grabbed a pair of jeans without looking at them and slipped them on, a little snug, but zipped right up and buttoned. I started wondering then, took them off and sure enough they were the 22's!!! I'm going to go try the 20's on just to see how far I have to go, but I am SO stinking thrilled about the 22's. I haven't been a 22 in about 10 years! The hubby and mine  10 year anniversary is this Friday and I'm in better shape now than when we got married! I put on my wedding dress the other day for him. To big! It was a pretty dress but not what I really wanted for a dress to get married in. So I decided that next year for our anniversary I want to wear a cute little dress for our anniversary that will make my husband stand at attention. Well, part of my husband stand at attention! hehehe I'm sooo naughty!  I went a got a new bathing suit for the weekend because we are going away for the weekend. I got into a 20 and damn I don't look to bad! My legs still look terrible, but I know I'm a work in progress!
I want all of you to know that I read all the blogs and you are all AMAZING! I love having your blogs to keep me going. I think reading about others good days and bad days are so inspiring! We all have this weight thing in common and we will all get through it and get to the maintenance part and do well at that too!
