I know on my last blog I mentioned that I was hoping to retire some shorts before the end of this summer. Well... I am there! Last night when I was using the bathroom I realized that I could pretty much pull the shorts down without unfastening the button.
I had to show it off to my mom because she was getting onto me tonight about needing to lose inches around my hips whike we were working on my school scrubs. I agree with her but it is still great to have clothes falling off.
Another thing that I realizes tonight was that Mom wears a size 14. Hmmm...shorts falling off, her jeans are accessible, let's give them a try. Sure enough, I could fit in them comfortably. The last time I borrowed her jeans they were tight on me. This time, she may end up missing a couple of pairs!
I'm just so happy because it has probably been 2 years at least since I got down to size 14, which was the size I wore in high school and partway through college.
Another goal was that I reached was weighing in at 195 pounds this morning. I can't remember the last time I was at that weight but 6 years ago, when I came home from a semester in France I was at 185 pounds and I had lost 15 pounds that semester. Now I am only 10 pounds away from that goal. That was also my last 2 years of high school, first two years of college weight.
It is just great to be under 200 pounds. For so many years it has seemed like I would get there but not break into the hundreds. Now I am past it and hoping to never go back!
