The Incredible Shrinking Woman :)
I had two very WONDERFUL things happen this week…Both weight related. I am now, for the very first time EVER, in VIRGIN FAT TERRITORY (back to the lowest weight I was before gaining with pregnancy) …that always sounded so funny to me when someone would say that, but it’s the best feeling in the world!!! As of Tuesday, I was 3 oz. less than I have been in YEARS…(before pregnancy and all)…I was SO excited when I realized that…
And 2nd, I took my measurements for the 2nd time last night since joining WW (wish I would have done it at my highest) and I have already lost 14.25 inches total!!! 2-3/4 off my hips AND waist alone!!! I was ssooooo excited!!! I knew I had lost alot, but not that many !!!
So, needless to say, I jumped on my scale this morning right away (haven’t been on it since my weigh-in on Tuesday) and it’s down again I look forward to Tuesday’s weigh-ins so much more lately…and these losses sure make it ALOT easier to stay OP!!!!
I did have something I wanted to ask you all about, and if you have an opinion on this, please leave a ‘comment’ and let me know what you think about this…two nights ago, I was talking to someone that I am very close to, and she was telling me she’s lost more weight (she’s already so skinny) and people were noticing and telling her they could tell she’s lost…when it hit me, that I really think my ’skinny-sensor’ is warped from me being so heavy myself…what I mean is, this girl looks SO thin to me…she looks absolutely perfect, and yet there are a couple of people that insist on telling her she needs to lose weight, they worry about her…I’m like ‘HELLO…’ what in the world these people must think of me is beyond me. I guess that whenever I see someone that isn’t as big as I am, I think they are so thin! I’m worried that if my sense of skinny is warped that I will be wearing cut off shirts and daisy dukes with ROLLS sticking out…HAHAHHA…(don’t worry, I won’t…but you get my point)…maybe it’s because these people aren’t as far gone as I was at my heaviest, so I don’t see how anyone could think they need to lose??? This is getting confusing for me to explain…I hope you all understand what I mean…hahah…just wondered if I’m not the only one who notices these things…
If you don’t know me very well, you soon will, and you will realize, that you will never know what to expect here…I just love the fact that I can come here and blab about anything, and no one thinks any different of me…it’s nice to have you all coming here and being in the same situations that I am … so I know I’m not alone (there ARE people out there, right????)
Welp, I gotta head to work…spending the day wrapping gifts for a gift exchange there for Christmas Should be an EXHAUSTING day…NOT!! I am hoping that my mom will watch the girls for 20-30 minutes so I can walk while I’m there, though, it would be great!! I hope you all have a wonderful, watered, OP day!!!! ((HUGS))
hehehehe You are too funny! I’m so excited about your losses and all those INCHES GONE!!!! I feel the same as you about the "skinny sensors", so you are NOT alone. Just think… someday WE will be the ones that people are saying "OMG - you DON’T need to loose weight, you look GREAT!!" hehehehe
