My Journey

Monday, October 31, 2011


I am 1/2 way to my goal weight of 130!! 41 pounds lost.....41 to go!

So.... my best friend is coming into town this weekend (which is good cause she is coming the same day my babies and Jake fly out!), and we are going to DC to see one of our closest friend's in a play. Sarah, the friend in DC, invited us to a "fancy black tie formal" (this is what she texted me) party after the show. Yikes!! I don't do fancy late night parties anymore! I am a boring mommy of two that thinks a fancy Fri night is finding a babysitter and going to Target with hubby kid- free! Needless to say I am kinda dreading having to wear heels all night. 4 years ago this would have been my thing. Oh, how times change!

Now that I have lost all this weight, I of course have NOTHING to wear, and I don't want to have to buy something for my half way to goal body.  I browsed TJ MAXX for a bit, and found a dress I loved! Sadly it only came in a small.... but I thought.... I am going to try this on.... and it was really tight, but I did get it over my body (yay me!) and it actually didn't look all that bad. I wouldn't have been able to sit, but if I had to stand all night, I might have to been able to pull it off. I will see what else I could find.

I certainly do love being able to see something I like and instead of saying "that would look great on my sister" (size 2) I can say "I bet that would look great on me!" (size 12/14)

I am getting pretty excited to reach my next goal of 150lbs! Thanks to all of you for all the support along the way. You guys are really my go to when I need some advice, whether is be weight loss land, or reality! It's nice. I like you. a. lot.
