The numbers do mean a lot to some people, though (and some are in huge denial as to what size they truly are!). I could feel depressed at squeezing into a 14 when I just got done figuring I couldn't fit a 14 anymore, but I really don't feel that way. I get that plus-sizes are larger...and I'm ok with the numbers. I know there are people who have a number in their heads and they will do their utmost to fit into that number in every store (muffin tops, camel toe and back fat be damned). I think I will just try on lots of sizes and see what works. If it's a large in one store and an XL in another, oh freakin' well! If I can fit a 12 here, but spill outta a 14 there...so be it. I just want my clothes to look good on me. I can rip out the darn tag anyway.
I hear people say they want to be a size 6 or 8 or whatever, and I just KNOW I will never be that size, and frankly that is just fine by me! I am a tall girl, so a 12/13 looks darn good on me. Anyway, we shall see what size I end up in 20 lbs. I want to be 173 eventually. That puts my BMI at under 25.
In other news...I ate pretty well today, with some fruit and veg thrown in. I still need to drink more water though. Ugh...it's hard to do! I did better when I was working for some reason. I am still trying to be very aware of portion sizes because that was my great flab-inducing downfall before. Smart girl that I was, chowing down on the same amount of food as my giant of a husband. Yeesh.
I also took a lovely walk with my neighbour Leanne, who is also on a weight-loss journey (Hey Leanne...if you are reading!). She's doing really well and looks great. :)
Hope all you bloggy friends are hangin' in and enjoying your summer!
