Out of my comfort zone...

...and lovin' every minute of it!

If you are a long time reader you will remember several months ago I blogged about goals. A few of my goals were to be more social with my neighbors and to wear a tank top in public. Well, I am proud to say that I have accomplished both of these goals.

Goal #1 - Since June, I have been much more social with the neighbors and have made some good friendships with them.

Goal #2 - My husband's birthday was last week and after we had a nice birthday dinner, he went outside to hang out with the neighbors. About 15 minutes after the Hubs was out, he came in and said the neighbors wanted me to come outside too. I was still wearing my work clothes (capris and a sleeveless collared shirt that I wore under a denim jacket) and I said I would come out after I changed my shirt (I was not about to bare my naked batwings in front of other people).

He looked at me as if I was crazy and said that after all the weight I have already lost I should feel good about wearing my sleeveless shirt outside and didn't need to change it. I was hesitant but he encouraged me to go outside with what I had on and I did. It was the first step out of my comfort zone and it felt great.
