Things that make you beautiful are on the inside (of your clothes)

Sunday, July 21, 2013

Yesterday was a bit of an emotional turmoil kind of day for me. I am rather conflicted about certain developments, and it bothered me the whole day. Thankfully, I managed to sort out my emotional distress by the end of the day, averting an-almost disastrous food binge by sticking to a handful of caramel corn (and NOT the whole bag). Miraculously I stayed within my calorie limits, and with the evening workout ended up a little under!
Today I woke up at my regular zero-dark-thirty time and went for a run. It was a little less painful then usual, and I was fairly close to my goal time, leading me to believe that maybe next weekend I will be able to hit my goal time without dropping at the finish line. I decided to celebrate this accomplishment by sleeping in. Since I don't have to be at work until after noon, I took a nice long leisurely shower and headed back to bed. When I woke up again, at 1130, I was rested and refreshed, my roomie was gone to work, and I cranked up the music as I got ready.
Now... the best part! It is Sunday, my usual weight-and-tape day. I skipped the weigh-in, since I did one on Friday morning (5-almost 6 lb down from beginning of the month!!!!!!!). I did get out my tape, and almost started crying when I say the numbers. 32.5! Without trying to hold my belly in! This means that (gasp!) my belly is smaller than my boobs. I have NEVER seen my belly smaller then my boobs - even when I was 128lb my belly stuck out. In retrospect, I think the wheat and lactose allergies were responsible for the bloat, and now that I got rid of them, my tummy is slowly shrinking.
So... I celebrated my success by digging out the cache of the beautiful new underwear that finally came in last week. So today... I am wearing a beautiful new set of underthings under my cammies, and it feels amazing. My smile is wider then usual. I feel good!
Now, I still have 40lb and 3 minutes of run time to go before I reach my goal. However, if my weight loss journey taught me something about myself, it is to celebrate small successes. Tomorrow, I will run and workout, and ignore the home-baked treats and goodies strewn around my office. Today, I will strut. Happy weekend, everyone!

    Wonderful display of strength and determination. Both of these are so essential to reaching our goals and maintaining. Congratulations on your run, and especially on the new underwear. It is always a boost to be able to put on something smaller than usual. Let me know when you reach your goal.
