I have been working hard on my food choices but the exercise of late has been pretty sporadic (as in non-existent). The past few days I've been trying to change that. Getting out, walking the lake and yesterday when it was just to hot to do that, I actually got on the treadmill and then did some work with my weights. Apparently it worked!!
I am officially ONE pound away from my next goal!!! I wanted to lose 30 lbs by Aug. 1st and as of today, I've lost 29!!! I'm pleased!!!
My daughter and I went shopping yesterday. We went to some thrift stores because she wants designer and I just wanted some things that would look good now even though i still have over 12 lbs to lose. Wow, did we do great!!
I got a pair of Lands End white jeans in a size 6 that look like they were made for me!!! I also got a beautiful pair of Ann Taylor capris that were a 6 petite. My daughter got tons of things (well, everything looks wonderful if you're a size 2). The woman at the cash register said it was fun to watch the mother/daughter team and she remembered when she was young and slim like the two of us!!!! It felt soooo good to hear that. My daughter hugged me and said, "See Mom, I told you you looked great".
3/4 of the way home. Dang, I'm on the home stretch!!!!!!

I have been steadily losing weight since the first week of February. I am very pleased that all the hard work I've put into this is finally paying off. Now I seem to have a new set of problems.
Well, the problem is exactly that. The set. With each child I gained a cup size on my bra. I started as a "B" and after my daughter was born I was a "C". Once I had my son, I was a "D". As years went by and having some health issues namely a hysterectomy and then when they thought I had breast cancer (it was benign!) I gained a lot of weight. Stress.....I went to a "DD" and believe me, my cup runneth over.
Now that I have lost close to 30 lbs. I am wearing a "C". Not a pretty "C" but a very saggy, deflated balloon "C".
So, the plastic surgeon was wonderful. She said that she could do a lift and once all was said and done, I would be a perfect "B" once again. Ha, back where I started. She is working with me on the money so that isn't the issue. Here's where I'm struggling.
I am past that 50 mark. I am single right now and looks like I will be that way into the future. Does it really matter anymore? I keep going back and forth. Who's going to see them? Well, I am for one and that's important, isn't it....but at my age? Should I really bother?
It's tough for me. I just don't know what I want to do. I keep going back and forth. If I do do this it will be when I am within 5 lbs of goal, which takes me to th end of the summer. That would be perfect timing for me as business is very slow then and I could take the time.
Has anyone done this? Would love some advice! Opinions are welcome.

This past week every client I saw said something about me losing weight. Finally! It took 25 lbs before they noticed. How crazy is that? They all said how great I looked and that I was so small etc. It was nice.
So, how come I don't feel small? I know I am still about 14 lbs from goal and for some reason I just still feel fat. I am really watching what I eat and trying to fit in exercise when I can but when I sit down I still feel that roll of fat and when I take a shower I can see where the next weight must come from.
Yes, clothes still fit better and I'm wearing ever smaller sizes but I just don't feel "small". I am wondering if I ever will.
Just thinking out loud and wondering if anyone else feels like this.
