I feel like this post is going to be all over the place, I have so many things going through my head right now. Following in Drazil's footsteps I think I will do this post in a list format so that I make sure and cover everything :)
Chicago: So I haven't posted much about this trip, because honestly I have been so upset about it. I can't tell you have many times I have broken down to tears thinking about it. The problem is, my best friend is getting married on the 25th of September and I am in her wedding. If it wasn't for that I hope you all know I would be there in a heartbeat. I know there will be plenty of other get togethers, but I can't help but have a pity party and stomp my feet. I want to be there so badly. Ok, enough!
Weight: Last Thursday (on my birthday) I finally hit 188, 60lbs down. Well that was short lived! I think it lasted about a half hour before I decided to eat anything and everything I wanted. All of this week I was up to 193, and not doing much to help it. Finally yesterday the mystery restriction reappeared, and this morning I was back to 189! Praise the lord!
Challenge: Tomorrow Week 4 results are due! I really hope we hit our goal of 30lbs down for the week! I have high expectations, and have a feeling we blew this goal through the roof!
Shopping: Rick's cousin is getting married next month and I was in need of an outfit for the rehearsal dinner. I've noticed that as I continue to lose weight I have a hard time reusing my outfits and constantly want to buy new ones for every reason possible. Well today I had fantastic luck at Ann Taylor Loft. I went in and decided to try on this cute little dress, it was a no go! I asked the sales woman to help me zip it, and she couldn't even get it close (it was a 14) She told me not to worry and she could find plenty of other things that would work. She asked me if I wanted her to be my personal shopper....I said sure why not? Minutes later she comes back with 3 different complete outfits, and by complete I mean bottoms, tops, AND accessories! There were 2 skirt ensembles, and 1 with jeans. She grabbed a 14 and a 12 in the skirts, I obviously went for the 14 first, seeing how the 14 dress didn't just fit. I came out in it, and she said no way its too big on you! AHHHHH! So I tried the 12 on, and it fit! YIPPPEEE! I ended up buying 1 skirt, 1 pair of jeans, 1 cotton shirt, 2 tank tops, 2 cardigans and a necklace! I would say an overall SUCCESS! Now the problem is did I have money for all of this? Of course not...but that's a story for another day.
