Weigh-in Wednesday

Another pound gone - YIPEE! Only 13 more to go, which, honestly (at this rate) feels like saying I have another 100 lbs to lose. Regardless, I'm definitely feeling good and not "hating" on myself as much. I haven't dared to try and put on my pre-preggers jeans yet. Don't even try to convince me either because it will no doubt lead to a instantaneous depressed state that will result in the consumption of excess amounts of chocolate, candy, chips and anything in my house that isn't labeled "low fat". :p

What motivates me most is my guest room closet. My guest room closet is stacked, loaded, overflowing with my most fabulous clothes... all in size 4-6. Every now and then I visit my clothes, just to say hello. Sometimes I dare to try on some of my cute leather bombers but with my new knockers, it ain't hap'nin. When I look at myself, I don't notice how much bigger my boobs are... but then I try on an old button-up shirt, jacket, or sweater and all of a sudden I'm looking Pamela-Anderson-style - as if, innocently, I cannot find a shirt that will cover up my overflowing cups. I don't like having big boobs. Although, at this point, if I had tiny "bee sting" boobies, it might look a little dis-proportioned with my new found curves.

I cannot wait for the day that I fit into, and not just fit into, but FIT, you know - because I could probably "fit" into my pre-preggers jeans now but it might look a lot like when you try to squeeze an unfolded sleeping bag into it's case... it's all bunching out the top and you can't for the life of you understand how it will ever fit in that tiny case.

Anyways, it's Remembrance Day here which is the same as Veterans Day in the US... so to all the veterans and current heroes out there - lots of love. We show our respect by wearing poppies, thus today's picture.

Here are my stats:
Current weight: 150 lbs (almost in the 140s YIPEE)
Starting weight: 157 lbs

Pounds lost: 7 lbs

Pounds to lose: 13 lbs (Dear Lord, will it ever end?)

Oh dear, I'm afraid I'm having the opposite problem - I wanted to keep some of my pregnancy weight and (I think thanks to breastfeeding and being sick with mastitis twice) it just keeps falling off :( I'm jealous of you and you're probably jealous of me ... but in a way I suppose we can commiserate together!

You'll get back into those clothes someday!

I've been stuck at the same weight for weeks - still about 9lbs. to go. Maybe I should actually do something about it! :)

What happened to your friend who was doing weigh-in Wednesdays with you?

Jill's been really busy - back to work with a 4 month old (I think he's about 4 months now)... I thought I'd give her a few weeks before "tracking her down" and seeing what's up! ha ha ha.
