Thanks to all the encouraging comments and workout advice I received after my plateau post, I am proud to say that I busted through that !#&* plateau and lost two more pounds! That brings my total so far up to 8 pounds.
I know what you’re thinking….eight pounds? That’s not a lot for a workout regime that’s been ongoing since November! But really, for a woman who’s over forty and only 5 foot 1, eight pounds translates into almost two pants sizes. Yesterday, I almost embarrassed myself in public with plumber’s crack. My favorite low rider jeans won’t stay where they’re supposed to, and as a thong-wearing officianado, it wasn’t pretty.
Officially, I only have 4.5 pounds more to go (and to maintain it there for an undisclosed period of time says hubby) before he takes me on my promised tropical getaway. I may be getting ahead of myself, but for purely motivational purposes, I felt a new bikini was in order. I found a really cute Lucky Brand green, blue, white, and brown tie-dye suit that is just adorable. I even got it in a size small, and for the last five summers or so, size medium was the norm!
Hopefully, the new trend will continue, and I will see my weight gradually inch its way down into the college years numbers. (And NO, I am not posting actual numbers…too many people will read weight numbers and try to figure out where they themselves stand….NOT healthy to compare yourself to anyone else I feel). It’s exciting to think that at this year’s annual female-hating-life-wish-I-didn’t-have-to-freakin-come-here visit, that I may not even threaten the nurse’s life when she asks me to step on the scale. And that’s progress.
