Numbers

I've been pretty discouraged with my numbers all along. They are never where I want them to be and always seem to be just barely hovering where they are - not stable by any means.

I had a huge realization about the scale numbers tonight actually. I've only lost about 8 pounds since July, but I can now get into almost everything in my closet. Things I've not worn in four years. Things I had kept just for sentimental reasons.

I had a bit of meltdown after trying a few things on because I have been so hard on myself thinking I'd made no progress whatsoever. But I have. And it's all in inches!! And I will take a tinier new wardrobe over the numbers on the scales anyday!

Sweet!! congrats on your revelation! Sometimes we get so attached to the numbers on the scale that it can drive you insane! I'm in the same spot. I've only lost about 10 lbs since last Christmas but my clothes are WAY smaller!

PS I totally had to look up the spelling of Jake's name too. I googled him ;)

Congrats on losing inches!! We can't always keep numbers in mind...

Re: the squash, I can answer that as I have only made it in the oven.
Did you not like it? What did you have it with? I always eat it like spaghetti with sauce.
