As if this wasn't good enough, then my husband walked into the bedroom with this bemused expression on his face. He held up my "go-card" from work last year (the students all get them for ID and for whatever reason, teachers get one too). He said he hadn't realized how different I looked until he looked at that pic. I took the card from him and took a gander. YIKES! Um, yeah lookin' a bit portly there. What was weird for him, sweet man that he is, was that he never saw me as fat last year. So I had to ask, "But I look fat in that picture?" To which he responded, "Well, yeah!" Since he sees me every day, it's much harder for him to notice the changes...I definitely get that.
So there are my double whammy in-your-face moments of realization that damn, I've lost me some serious weight! Another nice moment this weekend was buying a size 11 skirt. :) It was a smidgen tight in the butt area, but not the waist, and it's one of those fabrics that will stretch a bit. Cool right? Fuck yeah!
So now all my nice, smaller clothes are hanging in my closet ready to adorn my slimmer bod, and boy does that feel good. I can't wait to lose these last 15 lbs. and maybe do another purge. Hey, any excuse to shop! Speaking of shopping, I bought some sexy tall, black, pointy-toed boots yesterday too. Hel-lo. They are hawt, if I do say so myself. Maybe I will bless you with a pic one day. :P
In the food world, I am definitely PMSing again. Frickin' hungry all the time again...craving chocolate too. Bugger. I probably consumed a few more calories this week because of it. I did manage to work out five days this past week. I plan to do six next. I am seriously contemplating buying one of Jillian Michaels' videos. Mostly because of Tiffany rocking her 30 Day Shred. Go Tiffany! I want to try it first if I can, so I will check the video store first. Everything I've read seems to point to some serious butt-kicking workouts. May just help me lose the last bit of weight!
Oh, and welcome to my new followers! Tricia, love your blog (even if your header makes me wanna eat cupcakes!). Becky, who appears blogless (please correct me if I am wrong!), but is so very welcome in blogland! And my most recent addition, Dawn, who has this blog, which has awesome recipes and pics, along with this one, which is also awesome, and more about her weight-loss journey. Also, thank you to all my previous followers. I know I didn't welcome each of you (sorry!), but I am really trying to now that things have slowed down. Love y'all!
