Week 8 Check In

Thursday, June 02, 2011

I've been really terrible about journaling here for a while now. I don't even know what that's about, really. I've been sick and haven't really felt like it, that's true. I've also been stagnating since I did my restart and I've been a bit embarrassed. No worries, though, I've still been doing my weigh ins and keeping track of things there. I did hit 177 even on the bathroom scale today (er, yesterday, technically), which is the lowest ever by a little more than a pound, so hopefully I've broken the 178-179 thing I've had the last couple of months. *crosses fingers*

It occurred to me the other day that I've been pretty steadily holding under 180 on the bathroom scale for a while now- even if sometimes it's only just- so I should probably do the reward for that now. I don't know, it just... kind of feels like cheating because I've been stagnating? I know it's ridiculous because I've definitely earned it, but unfortunately that doesn't keep me from feeling like I don't deserve it.

I've put a background on my phone that says "No More Excuses"- because I've had an awful lot of those lately, and it needs to STOP. Considering how much I use my cell phone, I'm hoping that it will prod me into being more active. Yes, I've been sick. Yes, my left arch has been raising perfect holy hell like it does sometimes for no apparent reason. Still excuses- and who knows, maybe my arch would feel BETTER if I started working out again. I went for a nice long walk last night (home to the farther grocery store and back, which is 3.8 miles) and didn't have any problems, so here's hoping.

Two good things today aside from the bathroom scale weight- one is that I fit solidly into a 14 now. I could get 14's on before, but I couldn't breathe when I sat down unless they had an elastic waistband. No problem now. :D I can also take off my 16 jeans without unbuttoning them. That being said, I now own a pair of shorts for the first time in my adult life. I think the last time I had any I was... 13/14? So it's kind of strange. They're knee length, so nothing terribly short, but they'll be better than jeans when I'm hanging out outside for Pride next weekend. The other? My bras have been not fitting properly again, this time in the cup. I was figuring that I probably went back down to an F. I went and got measured- 40DDD. In other words, no change in the band size, but I lost TWO WHOLE CUP SIZES. I haven't been a DDD since my sophomore year of high school. So needless to say, this is good news. It'll make bra shopping a lot easier too- usually I just do it online because finding F, G, H in LB is like finding a needle in a haystack. A LOT more stuff available, too. Yay! emoticon So... obviously Things have been happening with my body even if the scale hasn't really gone much of anywhere. That makes me happy. ^_^ Don't get me wrong, it would be nice if the scale started moving significantly again, but as long as there's positive changes happening, I can't really complain.
