Word to the wise: Don't try on anything at target! Did that today The lighting in there is terrible and there were three, count em three mirrors perfectly placed to see all the things I did not feel the need to see under harsh lighting! LOL

Trying on that pair of shorts today was a bad idea!

TJMAXX...now they are smart! they have flattering lighting and only the one mirror in the changing stall. If you want to look at the three way its outside the room so you have to have to be fully clothed to step out there. At least I do. No way I'M going out there in my undies......

Between the lighting which improves a gals self image and the prices, I buy things in there way more often.

Consider yourself warned!!!!! LOL

Have a happy Wednesday!

Well I sure hope your Monday was the new start you hoped for after that weekend "slip up" lol I sure hope you put away the guilt and shame stick cuz boy oh boy you were hitting yourself hard with that thing! LOL
It's good you recognized that while the food and wine fest was a bit much...you did at least put in lots of exercise so not a total loss. Like you said you were on a roll before that so just see it for what it was, one bad day, and move on. These last two days have been beauties haven't they? Surely they must've been calling you to get out and walk....nothing better than that on a sunshiny day. Stick to your plan. track. drink your water. It'll all be fine. At least it'll flush out the salt and adult beverage bloat!
BTW I have the same sausage in a the casing problem with my shorts from last summer too! I can put em on but it's not real perty. Nope! I kinda like breathing. LOL So here we are...we are working on it. One day at a time. That's all we can do right? That and not buy another bottle of wine for a while. :)
You know what... I dared to step on the scale. I mean its just been going up and up and up. Well, I did it while holding my breathe of course and wearing nothing and crossing my fingers as the numbers ticked away. The darned thing said I dropped 4lbs! But I'm not inclined to believe it much. She's a sneaky machine. I'm holding on to the fact that its progress in the right direction , however big an illusion it might be. Not going to do that again until i'm having a feeling thin, doing good kinda day. Hopefully she says nice things to me again! LOL
Shorts are still snug though...just sayin.

Keep on sparking and trying, my friend, YOU can do this! WE can do this together. Have a great week. TTYL

You know that moving forward is the two steps forward, one step back routine...LOL...though it's no laughing matter! sigh

I'm not going to put the shorts right in my line of sight, but I now have committed to trying on those shorts every single week...I could almost get away with wearing the shorts except they are too tight for my sensibilities. We WILL get those shorts in the seasonal wear area...hopefully before winter. UGH

Well Hope this mostly sunny if not cool day was an great one. Did you get your walk in? Drink your water? Have that margarita? LOL
I just finished tracking....that French toast breakfast killed my evening calorie reserve so I guess no margarita for me! Poo! already 100 cal over for the day! I'm OK with that....pool should be open tomorrow and I've heard it's going to a beauty so maybe margarita poolside????
I will not cave to temptation tonite! I will not cave, I will not cave, I will not cave!!!!!

Hope your keeping it all going. Weekends can be rough I know. I think you've got this tho. I hope I do. LOL

Good evening, TTYL

Hey! Thanks for the bikini! When I was young like BK (before kids) I wore bikinis...little ones too! I loved them! Now I wouldn't subject the world to that horror! LOL ravages of time and childbearing make this middle no longer bikini worthy no matter how much weight I lost. Hahaha! Maybe 2moro the WARM sunshine will make an appearance. With all the rain and clouds my pool has not been opened.( Insert sad face here) And the water temp in lake is still COLD! Ugh! I figure before July I might be able to get out there and try my hand at paddleboarding. Let's hope so!
