10 weeks in

This is the final week of the Healthy Habits Challenge that my friends and I have been doing on Facebook so it seems like a good time to update.
I just started my 11th week of Weight Watchers, and as of yesterday I have lost 20 lbs since I began.
I have also gone down 2 dress sizes...which is fabulous except that it's difficult to find clothes to wear every day. I'm hesitant to buy anything new because I sincerely hope that nothing will fit for very long. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be living in maxi dresses all summer!
I feel great and I've actually reached the point where I enjoy exercising. I honestly never thought I'd be able to say that. I still struggle with some things physically, but that just makes me more determined to conquer those challenges.
I've learned to like many foods that I used to dislike intensely. I don't know what that's all about, but it's like someone flipped a switch in my brain and suddenly things just taste better. Which is very helpful, because it's difficult to be healthy when you don't like vegetables.
So that's the scoop really. Things are going great (though never has quickly as I'd like). I feel terrific. I've reached a point of comfort. I am mindful of what I put in my mouth, but not so mindful that I don't allow myself to enjoy eating. I feel like a new me...a me that I like very much.
