The Real Slim Shady, Er, Groovey....

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Anyone who is familiar with the rap star EmNEm knows his alter ego is The Real Slim Shady..... So, yesterday and today I've been feeling slim! I've been feeling skinny. That hasn't happened in a long time! I'm not exactly slim and not skinny by miles yet, but I feel slimmer!

So, since I'm a groovey chick I thought my alter ego might be The Real Slim Groovey or Princess Slim Groovey! HeeHee!

I'm pretty sure my bra is too big for me now. I haven't lost but an inch in my bust, but my bra is big. This is the same bra I've been waring even when I gained weight, so it is stretch out a bit. I'll probably buy a in between bra to last me from now until I am closer to goal. Like my Spark friend Tanya, I want to go to Victoria's Secret and buy a cute bra, maybe one with polka dots! I need to b able to wear such a bra first! It was rather embarrassing for Tanya who met up with one of her middle school aged students and his entire family at VS! That won't bother me! I hope to be embarrassed at Victoria's Secret! That will be a WooHoo moment for me!

I haven't tried any of my jeans on. I don't want to ruin this slim feeling even if it is just a feeling. I hate jeans because I am so short (#1) and so chubby (#2). I never find any that fit right. But, I suppose I do need to try on a pair to see if I am indeed slimmer.

I wore an XL sweater to work yesterday and it hung on me like I was a scarecrow. That I don't like.... I have gorgeous clothes, but so be it! I want to donate them to a worthy cause or a worthy person!

I didn't make it to Curves yesterday as I thought. I only got 50 minutes of exercise in too. But, I haven't felt my best all week. Sort of drained and very tired. Today I went to Curves and it was a balmy 70 outside and it was very humid and hot inside. That made my workout difficult. The lady working out next to me burned 483 calories with Curves Smart! I only burned 343. I want to burn as much as her. But, I know I don't perform well in humid conditions unless in water! Hopefully it will be better tomorrow.

So, I lost another 1.8 pounds this week! So I am really slimmer. That was for my BLC weigh in. I get weighed at Curves on Friday.

I'm enjoying the Curves Complete program and especially Curves Smart which always keeps you improving on your workouts. Life is feeling good again.

    OH.MY.GOSH I am sitting here grinning from ear to ear at how darn cute you are, Princess Slim Groovey! You crack me up! I love that you are feeling slim, and getting those Curves minutes in! I would do just about anything to be the one there with you shopping for new bras! And YES, you need to get a polka-dotted one! So here's the funny thing, as I sit here typing, my bra is sticking out to there and there is barely anything filling the cup anymore! I quite literally can put my hand in it and there is still room! Nell, on the Maintenance Team, suggested I "stuff"!

    Do you have a Kohl's nearby? They carry Lee Jeans and I love that you can get them in short, medium, and tall. I love their "Relaxed Fit" fit. You should just go try them on! I bet you will love how they fit your Slim Princess body!

    So, can I hate you for being so into exercising and everything? Congratulations on the weight loss though I am so very jealous.

    I have a "skinny" day about once a month, if that often!!!

    So very proud of you for all your accomplishments!!!!
