Weight

Alice Evans 2My name is Alice Evans.  I started this weight-loss program very upset with myself.  I did not look as well as I wanted to in my clothes. I didn’t feel good and had many restless nights not able to sleep and didn’t like to walk at all if I didn’t have too!  My face was fat and I had a double chin.  I no longer received compliments on how I looked.  My compliments may have been just that what I was wearing was nice and where did you get it; nothing like the compliments I get now!

After approximately 3 ½ months, I have lost 45 pounds and so many inches.  I have dropped from a size 24 to a size 14.  I get so many compliments now that I just can’t help but act like a little shy girl.  I smile so big that I just have to take both hands and hide my face because I am grinning so big!

What I’m loving so much is how I am able to wear the smaller size clothes and watching myself go from a size 24 to 20 then 18 to a 16 and now a size 14. I love trying on clothes whether I buy them or not.  Now I can wear my high heel shoes which I had stopped wearing because my feet and legs would hurt so badly when I wore them.  Even when I wore them I would take slippers and or flats to change into because I knew I couldn’t stay in them long.  But now I put my heels on in the morning and stay in them all day long….sometimes until bedtime!  I had not been able to do this for over 25 years!

My hair dresser said to me “You move so quickly from the shampoo bowl now”!  When I think back she used to help me up out of my chair.  I didn’t realize I was actually moving around like an old, old woman.  I had a friend tell me, who hadn’t seen me in about 6 months, say “I looked like I did when we were in college over 40 years ago” and I am now 63 years old.

I am so excited about my weight loss!  I have not reached my goal yet but prayerfully I will be there soon.  My desire was to weigh less than 200 pounds which that goal has been met and my final goal weight is 160 pounds and to wear a size 12.
