Is it crazy that I just recently had my little thrill over the towel wrapping around me? And I have like 7 inches on both sides overlapping so I guess it's been that way for a while. Idk how I missed that, but I love that I notice these little things and I think that after 15 years in an obese body I won't ever take them for granted. The little ones that pop up each day are those things that keep me on track. And habit. Can't really discount habit at this point. Habit is your friend in the end.. In the beginning it's a little bitch. LOL.
Current weight: 160 lbs (-154 from all-time high)
I am working on getting back out there on my runs now that my nerve damage DOES seem to be reversing itself. It's slow, but it's happening so now that my worries about surgery are dissipating I can focus on training again for my half. I'm pretty excited. This will help with the toning on my legs that I want to get done. I still don't love the BF seeing my dimply butt!! Haha. But I am getting more comfortable with this.
The boyfriend. Y'all ready for this? I am seeing a 20-year-old. Maybe not 100% wise, but let me tell you. He's like having my very own Hunter Hayes. Having every one of my favorite country love songs dedicated to me. I don't know where it's going, but for now I am pretty happy. He's 20 which honestly makes me even more self-conscious about the stretch-marks and the desperately needed tuck situation, but not because of any indication from him that it's a problem. Just one of those things I have to become comfortable with. I hope that as the months progress, I will become more comfortable with my new body. Skin and all..
Guys are an issue. When I started losing weight, I was married with no plans of changing that and this single world, the thin one is a SCARY place for me. I am not accustomed to having to handle guys hitting on me. I am not accustomed to the persistent ones for sure. The ones that don't care when I say that I have a boyfriend. This has been a HUGE issue the past couple of weeks for some reason. I got asked out 3 times in 14 hrs when I wore the dress below and 2 of the guys are borderline stalking me now. I'm just ill-prepared for this.. Any tips from you lovely ladies? I try to let them down easy and I think this is what gets me into trouble.
This is the dress that I believe caused the issues. Haha. It was a gift from a great new friend (and the story of how we met is hilarious).. It's also a SMALL from Express!
A couple other pics. I am getting this skirt taken in because I love it and I think it will last me forever because it will be easy to take in. This style is great for my body type.
Love you guys,
