Weighing In on Weight Loss & Our Story*
Well, it’s Tuesday again which means it’s time to report on my current fitness challenge. Unfortunately, I didn’t lose a pound this week, I just maintained my current weight. However, I’m not sad about it because I have good news! Like most women out there, I have a collection of “Skinny clothes” (if you try and deny having that pair of jeans, or that jacket that you’re saving for when you lose a few, I won’t believe you! haha). I have quite a collection of Summer Skinny Clothes that I keep at the back of the closet, you know, just in case. Yesterday I tried on a pair of shorts that didn’t fit me three weeks ago… and voila! They were faboosh!
You see, when I started running last summer I went 5 weeks without losing a single pound on the scale. I was SO frustrated and didn’t have a clue what I was doing wrong… then the Hubster took me shopping for new Teacher clothes and I discovered that I had dropped TWO pants sizes! So I know that I put all my weight on in my legs and I lose inches before pounds, which is fiiiiiiine by me! haha! I have a pair of capris that I bought when I was quite thin a few years back and they are always my tester–when I fit into those, life is good! So, I shall keep you posted. :)
In other news, I’ve spent a long time going through and fixing up the chapters of Our Story (the story of how my Hubs and I met and got married within 8 months) and have added “Next” and “Previous” links on each page to make it easier to read! As I got to the last chapter, I realized that it wasn’t the last chapter–I somehow forgot to write about our reception and honeymoon. I know I had a few die-hard fans there for a while (I have the emails and comments nagging me to write the next chapter to prove it haha) and I was wondering if you’d like me to finish the story? What do you think, Miss Gentle Nudge? haha
Alas, I haven’t been feeling terribly well all day and my loving Hubster is out buying me some Ginger ale so I’m off to collapse on the couch and await his return. Until tomorrow, lovelies!
