    100 Ways Wednesdays, Pt. 2


    This is the second installment of 100 Ways Wednesdays. I'm in the process of listing 100 ways my life has been changed by weight loss. I will have a new list of 10 every week until I reach one hundred.

    I'm encouraging people to list their own 100 ways. It could be 100 ways your life is better because of being a parent. Or, 100 ways your life is better because of your education.

    A few people are doing their own lists, including SnowElf, Pam, Susy and Yippeeskip. Please check them out as they are all kinds of awesomeness.

    On with my list. You can see the beginning of the list here.

    11 ♦ Mr. Sign and I fit in the same bed together for the first time in 8 years.

    12
    ♦ I weigh less now than when I got married 18 years ago.

    13
    ♦ People speak to me that never even noticed I was in the room before.

    14
    ♦ I am no longer "invisible" to the general public.

    15
    ♦ People take extra time to hold doors for me now when a year ago, they were slammed in my face.

    16
    ♦ It is no longer assumed that I am lazy because I am fat.

    17
    ♦ I don't have to hear, "You would be so pretty if you just lost weight".

    18
    ♦ I can feel bones I never knew I had.

    19
    ♦ Mr. Sign says he feels like he is "cheating" on his wife with me.

    20
    ♦ I can work for 8 hours standing on my feet, work out and still have enough energy to cook dinner and play with the girls.

    the idea that someone would slam a door in your face makes me so sad....truly.

    It was funny because. I was watching our news this morning and I found it amazing how much you look like one of our news anchoresses. (I don't think that's a word--how about News Divas?) ;)

    Great list again this week!! Mr. Sign's comment cracks me up--he's awesome. :) My list is in the works on my work computer, so I'll get it up later on today.

    ttys!

    I love number 19. Number 11 is not anything to sneeze at either.

    It is about time other people find out what we already knew for so long.

    You never cease to amaze me Jenn!! I can't wait to read next weeks 100 and congrats on the 2 pounds! Wooohooo!! Your HNT picture is mighty HAWT if I do say so myself!

    XOXO

    The Savage said...

    Woohoo! Personally I think you've always been beautiful.... Piss on anyone who thinks otherwise....

    What a great thing to do, Jenn! I'll look forward to your lists and hopefully be inspired to do one myself. I can completely understand your withdrawal of HNT, especially in light of that creepy interaction with that old dude. *Shudder* I have a hard enough time with the Coot Booty Patrol without giving them photo material for heaven knows what! Though I'm not nearly as photogenic as you are!

    *Hugs*

    congrats on your weight loss! all i can say is that anyone who didn't notice you or took the time to know you when you were heavier, are people not worth knowing at all.

    and ewww to the creepy friend's dad..karma's a b!tch, isn't it? lol
