Weighing in - 11/14

Today's weight is 183.5.  I am down one pound from last week's weight.

I'm a little disappointed, but a pound is a pound, and I need to be proud of myself for continuing to lose.  I am encouraged that I have had a LOT of stress lately, but I haven't fallen off the deep end.  It would sure be easy to dive into macaroni and cheese and pizza, though.  (Hence why I have neither of those items in my home.)

I might be at 182.5 when S gets home, and that's okay.  I might be at 183.5 still when he gets home, and that's okay, too.  I'm noticing changes in my clothes again, and that's nice.

...and because you might need a laugh today, here's a little confession.  My dress that I thought fit like a dream?  Well, the reality is that I was so stoked that a 12 came in the mail and wasn't skin tight or impossible to wear, that it fit like a dream.  I couldn't quite find my waist swimming in that thing, so I bought a belt (size M, I might add).  Even with the belt things didn't feel quite right.  

I consulted Roni, my partner in this whole weight loss/healthier living thing, and she laughed her butt off at me and said that the dress was too big!  LOL!

I had no idea.  So, for your viewing pleasure, here is my too-big dress.  Now I have nothing super special to wear at the boat's homecoming, but that's all right.  I think he'll just be happy to see me.

Great job on breaking through the Plateau Amber. :) And yes, your size 12 dress is too big. How great is that? :)

Woo hoo! A too-big size 12! How cool is that? The belt does make it look better (and shows off your svelte new you better too!)

Yea...clothes that are too big! That belt really shows off your hourglass!! I don't think S's really going to care what you wear/don't wear. He's just going to be so happy to see you!
