What a wonderful weekend! It's funny how a once dreaded activity has become my new favorite past time...SHOPPING!! I have been having the very best time buying new clothes to show off my "new body". And I LOVE trying on what I buy for hubby.
I bought a pair of Levi's! I have been wanting some to go with my new boots but was so afraid that I couldn't get my behind into them. Well guess what? Not only could I get into them but my behind looks pretty darned good in them!!! Hubby gave me a look up and down and nodded with a "yep". That was my stamp of approval. Ye-haw!
I'm trying not to spend a lot because I don't intend to be in this size for too long. But let's face it, I can't come to work naked so I have to buy some stuff! Right?! I shop the sales and outlets and discounted stores (love Marshall's), looking for the best deals. But when I get to goal weight LOOK OUT! That's when I will spend the big bucks (not really but I won't be so frugal as I am now). I am really looking forward to that!
I had a scale victory! What worked for me last week? I exercised 4 days, I walked every day, I weighed and measured my foods. Basically, I stuck to program.
I also had non-scale victories - compliments. I have loved the compliments and comments from staff who were off for the summer, who haven't seen me since school got out in June. A lot of people noticed and have said really nice things to me. My boss likes to point out that I have "lost the equivalent of a 10 year old".
This week could prove to be a bit stressful at work. I have to keep my act together and not stress eat (or drink). Stressed spelled backwards is desserts. Let's not even go there.........
