I had a really good day...
first, perfect 10
been getting 8 cups of water
getting in bed by 11
exercise...5 out of 7....but i was injured.
started pilates...so still doing upper body toning.
other than that going good.
I told my husband my weight this morning...I will tell you all on the first.
Needless to say, it was far enough away from 200 that I felt comfortable telling him.
His response "You told me your weight!"
Shock and awe.
Then I told him what weight I started at..
He said, "It wasn't that bad!"
I said "It was to me."
Oh, and the biggest thing today...
I went clothes shopping....
I have been to a few stores over the last few weeks...trying to see what kind of things I like.
You see, I haven't spent time buying things I like for at least 10 to 15 years. I have bought things that:
wouldn't call attention to me.
But I didn't buy things that would be:
call attention to myself.
That is the kind of shirt I bought tonight...
wait, lets see if I can not only find a picture, but upload it..
Well there, it's the same shape, mine is just slightly more coral with embroidered flowers.
It's a LARGE....lol, not and EXTRA LARGE.
Not a 1x. Or a woman's size...it's a 12/14.
I was so happy that I showed it to a friend.
The best part of the night was when I pulled a size 24 skirt off a rack and wrap it across the front of me and halfway around my back.
It almost doubled..in forty more pounds it will double.
That made it reality for me.
I used to wear a 24 no more than 8 months ago.
I also bought a pair of 14's, which I can pull up and zip.
I haven't been in 14's since 1997.
After that, I switched to stretchy pants and for the last 13 years or so, it was all downhill.
I recieved the happy blogger award from Alan from fools fitness...
I will do the things that make me happy tomorrow again.
Just for alan...
I have ten more, and ten more and ten more...
life makes me happy.
Have a great night.
