142.8 Thin again, and strangers treat me differently.

Strangers treat me differently, now that I am thin again. I don't know if it is because my confidence is back or genuinely the return of my attractiveness, In stores and out on the street, people -- men, women and children alike -- meet my eyes and smile. More often than when I was overweight, strangers comment about the weather and make chit chat in lines and waiting rooms.

I have not noticed family, friends or coworkers treating skinny me any differently. Well, you do compliment and congratulate me on my thin appearance. I do like that. But for the most part, I am still me and you know that and act accordingly. It is fun to see the shock register on the faces of those who have not seen me in a long time.

Yesterday, I lost 1.6 pounds. I was not at all trying to lose weight. I was just keeping the weight off. This is by far not the first time I have lost weight on keep trim eating. It's nice! It means I can indulge a little today. I will save most of this indulgence room for tomorrow as it is Sunday and they always have treats out after church service during the coffee fellowship hour. 

I daresay this picture could be an ad for Levi's 505 jeans! Heh! I look so honored to be able to wear them. I love this gymnast-style white top, too.

I didn't go on a formal walk yesterday, but I shopped at TJ Maxx and Winco Foods. Here is what I ate and lost 1.6 pounds:

Small bowl of Special K, strawberries and organic soy milk
2 pieces of toasted Kirkland whole wheat bread
2 tablespoons Skippy superchunk peanut butter and 2 teaspoons Smucker's strawberry preserves
1 Beef and bean burrito, 2 tablespoons salsa
1 small apple, 2 tablespoons peanut butter, 1 tablespoon semi sweet chocolate chips
Small bowl of kettle corn
Small bowl of strawberries drizzled with a tablespoon of Hershey's Special Dark chocolate syrup
