So, what is the small victory I speak of? I have 2! Earlier this year I bought this super cute motorcycle jacket for fall. It didn’t fit. Not even close. But, I refused to return it. Not only did I get a killer deal, but it was hella cute…and I can’t pass up cute clothes! So, today I am thrilled to say it fits, and it looks more adorable on then it did on the mannequin!
Small victory #2 – I am not a super dressy-up person, but I have had a pair of black pants I have loved for years. Today I am sad (and happy) to say I can no longer wear them. They are just too big! I could get the waist taken in – but then the butt would be poofy and honestly, I need NO assistance in making my ass look bigger – it does just fine on it’s own. 😉 So, I think I see dress-pant shopping in my future! Woo!
One of my work gf’s (Pam) said I should buy something new for every size I go down – I love that idea. I have clothes in my current size (26) all the way down to an 18 – but buying something new that symbolizes reaching that size will make it feel real. So, this weekend I will buy myself these:
I have a mini goal in my mind of being 299 by my 29th birthday (Jan 30th) which would mean in 15 1/2 weeks I need to drop 41 pounds. That’s a mere 3 pounds a week – I can TOTALLY do that! So, if I achieve my mini-goal I think these would make an amazing birthday gift:
Love. I seriously LOVE them. Now, the wide calf circumference is 16″ – my calves are currently 23″. That’s a 7 inch difference which may or may not be do-able. If not, those boots will still be on my wish list!It’s impossible to know how your body will slim down as you lose weight. The first time I joined WW I remember my upper body got small and my lower body stayed big – I was like a weeble wobble. This time I seem to be losing pretty evenly but of course I’ve noticed it more on the smallest parts of my body (ankles, wrists, neck, shoulders). I wish it was possible to spot train!
Yestrerday I successfully got up, got to the gym and began my workout by 6am. I will never be a morning person, but exercising before work means the rest of the day is MINE. How cool is that? This morning I had a killer migraine so I skipped exercise (and eating) but hopefully I’ll be back to normal by lunch. Tonight I will do some bellydancing in preparation for dancing at Raks Spooki V on Sunday. The piece is very personal (and gothic! woah nelly!) and if I can convince a friend to video tape it, I will post it on my blog next week. 🙂
