Brought tears to my eyes

Sunday, May 20, 2012

I was at work yesterday wearing a tank top and bagging a womans groceries. I had been helping her and her husband find stuff. Anyway as I was bagging her stuff up she said "You have lost a lot of weight, haven't you?" All I could think was, oh god the tank top and I have been so busy this week I didn't get to lift. If I seriously go a week without lifting the skin under my arms starts looking more baggy =( All I could spout out was "I havent been able to lift this week and yes, I have lost 130 lbs." It's one thing to tell ppl voluntarily about your weightloss. Quite another when they notice it. I was talking to my friend about surgery to get it removed. I just wonder if you gain the weight back the skin will be thinner when it stretches back out, ewwwwww!

On another note, I was at the post office and I saw my old coworkers fiance. Only seen him in photos but its so weird when u see ppl in person and you feel like u should say something but not sure. I did, I said "Your Taylor's fiance arent you?" He just lit up and shyly said yes. They are getting married at 19. Anyway I messaged her about it and she said, she was sitting the car and she said "He came out and was telling me about a teeny tiny lady with strawberry hair". LOL I like that description especially coming from a 19 yr old boy lol

Eating has been better this past week. I have been cooking more. Making more salads. Not eating out. All these things help me so much if I follow them. This fitness class I like is now on Sunday mornings. I have been going to that. I am just really struggling this week with lifting. I hate lifting alone. I miss Vicki so much. I don't wanna bother her, she's spending time with her baby. Literally counting down the weeks til she comes back lol I think she's almost half way through her leave. I drove to the gym to lift on thursday and I parked and UGHHHH i thought "I don't wanna be here!" All of the house stuff is exhausting and makes all the extra crap I gotta do seem more horrible. This morning going to WERQ and then lifting. Maybe I should invest in some 12.5 dumbells for the house

*I was just at the gym and doing my leg press. This dance teacher came up to me and said "Your guns look better than mine!" I know he was lieing, but it was nice to hear after yesterday lol

    Love when others notice my hard work too, especially if it comes from a 19 year old guy ;)

    I really think that I might to skin removal/tummy tuck after I know babies are done...I just hate having a perpetual muffin top/sagging lower stomach because of the excess skin. Blech!

    Wish I lived near you- I'd love to fill your lifting partner's spot until she comes back :)

    I think that lady had just seen you at the store before, and noticed you'd lost weight. I seriously doubt she was looking at your arms! Consider it a compliment!

    I think that those of us who have lost a lot of weight are more prone to notice signs that others have as well, signs that other people would not even notice. You are not going to gain the weight back so it really will never matter if the skin stretches too thin. You know what to do to keep the weight off and you will. You are an athlete now. 19 year old people are fairly critical of people's appearance so you can trust his assessment of how you look. I do so much better too when I eat at home and cook more. I need to try new recipes as I am sick of what I know how to make.
