A few things have happened over the past few days, nothing big to normal standards, but since I am a dork they were big to me.
Me and Loraine went to the mall, I was actually able to buy shirts at Old Navy,and they were a size Large. I can wear normal people clothes, its big to me. Then, I was able to buy panties at Victoria's Secret, regular size panties for regular sized people, something I haven't been in a long time. I also bought a new, regular sized belt at Hot Topic, I have always loved studded belts, but obviously haven't been able to wear one of those in a long time. I bought a white one with metal studs,I thought it would match everything since I pretty much wear the same type of outfit everyday with white DC's.
While I was on this mall adventure with Loraine, I decided to finally turn in my wedding set to get re-sized. I wear both my engagement ring and wedding band, they are soldered together. My ring was literally falling off if I would relax my hand too much, and I don't like wearing those plastic ring tighteners, so as much as I hate being without my ring, but it needed to be done. The turnaround here is 2 weeks, that's a long time to me. I feel naked without my ring, I have rarely taken it off in the almost 5 years we have been married, its a symbol of our love and commitment which means so much to me, we have been through so much together. By the way, my ring was a size 8, its getting sized down to a 6 1/2.
Playing with Laci, my oldest daughter, when we run and play she gets tired now before I do. It used to be, I would be worn out and she would still want to play. This is pretty cool.
I bought a pocket sized portable scale from amazon for when I go out to restaurants, its really cool to have, I got to use it twice this week. At restaurants I can measure my food so I don't find out the hard way I ate too much. Up to this point in my journey,I have had the full feeling, but I have not yet been sick from eating too much, knock on wood. I'm sure its not a pleasant experience.
I haven't quite reach 100 pounds lost yet, as of today I have lost 93 pounds, but I got something in the mail already to commemorate the achievement. My husband ordered and sent me a $100 gift card to bath and body works, the little note inside said "$1 for every pound you have lost. I am so proud of you. I love you with all of my Heart." It almost brought me to tears, that was so sweet of him. Time to get some new body washes.
One week down, one week to go of no running. I jogged for a few seconds on the treadmill and it didn't hurt, so next weekend I think I will be all set to start running again. I'm happy about it, I miss running, its makes me feel so free, and when I run, I feel like I have escaped obesity.
