Week 19

I have a final in an hour. I really should be studying for it. It's the last one of the semester and I feel so drained, so I figured I'll just do a quick update instead of studying. I have to guess at a lot of answers on this professor's tests anyhow.

So, weigh in this morning was 223.2, which is annoying because yesterday I was in the 222's. I didn't have a BM this morning, so that's probably why. Either way, it's a loss from last week. While I'm not losing as quickly as I'd like, I have to acknowledge that it's my fault. I've had a few too many cookies this week and I've not been to the gym for absolute lack of time. But, since today is my last final, I'll have some extra time to get some gym time in. I hope that'll help with the weight loss. I almost wrecked my day today, food-wise. I had to get to campus early for an end of semester evaluation from one of my professors. After that, I strolled over to the student union where they have delicious sandwiches and things. I thought to myself, "I have this extra money because my car inspection wasn't as much as I expected. I could spare a few dollars." But, I hopped on the computer before I made any decisions, saw Rachel's post about how she's lost over 50 pounds in less than 5 months, then I saw Lap Band Gal's Facebook picture of her standing with her Christmas tree, looking absolutely skinny and beautiful. These girls saved my day today. I would have eaten something awful if I hadn't had that feeling of wanting to succeed like they are. So, thank you ladies, for making me suck it up and eat my perfectly good string cheese and clementine.

Oh! I almost forgot! I've got 2 NSV's going on right now. I'm wearing a pair of size 20 pants that I haven't been able to wear in practically forever. They're smaller than my other size 20s, so that's exciting. They're a tiny bit squeezy, but they don't look bad. And, I went to my dad's house the other day to get one of my old prom dresses for my production of Romeo and Juliet. When I was there, he pulled out two other dresses, one that I wore for the Homecoming dance in 10th grade. It was a size 22 and it was huge! Like, I had a fist-full of excess fabric gathered up, kind of huge. Now, I know I weighed less than what I do now when I was in 10th grade, but I guess my body really is changing and the weight is being distributed differently. It's interesting. I was quite pleased with that. I also have a dress that I've never worn, which I'm not likely to wear. It's also a size 22, floor length gown, black with some pink sparkly bits all over it. If anyone's interested, I'll post a picture of it and do a give away. It'd be nice for someone to get use out of it. So, let me know if you'd like to see it.

I guess maybe I really should go look over my notes now. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend :)

Good luck on your last final! And as everyone always says "a loss is a loss!" so congrats on that too. And honestly, there's something to be said for losing the weight slowly too. It's not all bad. Keep up the good work!

You should totally have that dress altered if you've never worn it, I bet it was expensive!

Smaller jean sizes are always a good place to be. :)
