Fashion forward and 180lbs today!

I am totally being lazy and posting this email I sent one of my flogger friends. I know, I'm terrible! And did I mention lazy?

I can't believe I've lost (now) FIVE pounds after being stalled for so long. It really goes to show you that perseverance is the key. For me, having a very concrete goal is important too. In my previous attempts, I would always just try to "lose weight" and not really know how much. I'd lose until a) I felt I looked ok, or b) I got tired/bored with it. The weight loss would last a little while, but then I'd just go back to all the old habits. This time I know my exact goal, and the weight I want to stay at. All I have to do is get there and then figure out what I need to do to maintain it! Easy, right? Pffft. Having only 10 lbs to go is a bit scary/daunting because moving into the maintenance phase is where things can fall off the rails. I hope I can find a balance with eating and working out. 

Yup, so there it is. That's the #9 secret of my so-far success. I actually have a goal! And, wanna know another secret?

I am really going to make it.

Oh, and one more pic I want to share with you. Hee hee...it's from work today. It was "I can't believe you wore that!" day. I really can't believe I wore it. 


I just thought of something...if I had seen this pic a month or so ago, I would be wondering who photoshopped my waist to make it look like that! 

Later!

Wow! That IS some outfit. Did you win?

Those leggings with thr stripes or whatever they are would be perfect for a witches costume. My daughter is a witch this year for Halloween, and she is looking for a pair of socks in that look.

And Oh yes...look who went and got herself a waist! Congrats Tammy. Despite the strange outfit, you look great!

You are so cute, and you have such a cute figure!!! The outfit has some cute components to it. I would totally wear that shirt and that cardigan together with some skinny jeans and gold or silver flats. Aaaand theeeennnn I looked at you from the waist down. :P Wackadoodle! I'm excited for you to be only 10 pounds from your goal. That is so exciting!! Yay!

Coley: Thank you for re-commenting then! I missed you girl! I am pretty sure you will look even BETTER than me when you are done. You already are smokin'!! I thought of the photoshop thing because I actually tried that once! Lol...I thought my waist looked so thick maybe I could squeeeze it in. Hmm...not so much! Looked hilarious. :)
