Thanks everyone! I appreciate your positive feedback and support.
My 9 year old son noticed my measurements chart today and said, "Hey mom, you are on your third row, that's great!" (the rows are each 25 cm, so I'm 2 cm into the third row)
When I explained what it was for he said, "You don't look any different." I laughed! The great thing about his comment is that he never saw me as being big and fat, like I saw myself. Another great thing is that he didn't notice because I lost the cm/inches slowly, which of course is ideal!

Great news. Love how you keep your measurements on the refrigerator as motivation!
We like measurements too, that scale often doesn't tell the right story while the magic of a healthy lifestyle change is happening!
