I've lost almost 25 lbs and seem to be continuing to lose steadily and healthily yet I'm not noticing as much a difference as my numbers seem they would indicate.
My mom used to tell me 10 lbs is a clothing size. I've come to realize that is bull crap. I've had to retire a couple pairs of pants because they are now too big to continue covering my behind- but for the most part my clothes are just fitting better- not getting too big.
AND...there is this one pair of jeans from back when that refuse to fit comfortably - well to be honest they never fit comfortably even when I bought them back in 2006- but I weigh less now than I did then- seems like they should be buttoning with ease, but they're not. Frustrating.
I just keep telling myself to be happy with the results and to not get impatient.
I will not get impatient, I will not get impatient.
Looking forward to this weekend= specifically a night out with friends on Saturday!
In my most simple form I am an explosion of endearing quirks and delightfully glamorous tendencies. Some of my most wonderful talents and qualities include but of course are not limited to: cracking an egg with one hand, applying mascara without a mirror, freakishly perfect and neat printing skills, a completely unashamed love for incredibly girly and sometimes questionably un-adult things (if my choice of paper clips happens to be silver or pink- I'm always going to go for the pink) a never-ending devotion to all things stationary (planners, notepads, greeting cards, post-it notes)My love of both The Girls Next Door and John and Kate + Eight and desire to live both lifestyles simultaneously (well, with far fewer children than 8!) an admitted addiction to cosmetics,lotions, and potions, and of course the pretty fingers that type the thoughtful words that bring this blog to you today-XOXO!
