Still on the plateau... weighed in right at 200.8 today, where I've been hovering for over a month. I think I've really gotten over my anxiety/craziness about it. It is just a number, and as long as I keep doing the right things, I will reach ONEderland some day.
I'm going back into the classroom next week and have been working on my back-to-school wardrobe. It has been really exciting to venture into the spare closet and dig into boxes and boxes of clothes that didn't fit last year. The vast majority of them fit now! I'm so happy! And bonus: I don't have to buy many new clothes since I still have all of those. Nice.
Today, I went to Kohl's to pick up a few tops. I headed straight to the plus-size section and was discouraged at first because everything looked terrible on me. Then, a lightbulb went off and I headed to the Misses section. Things fit! I know Kohl's sizes run quite large and I'm not going to get carried away here, but that was a good feeling because I definitely was shopping plus-size there last year.
One thing I decided to invest in is some good shapewear so that I can have a sleeker silhouette and wear more fitted styles. I am so excited about how nice and smooth it makes me look. It will really expand the range of clothes I can incorporate into my wardrobe.
So right now, I'm feeling very good about my weight loss.
I gotta admit I was bummed I saw one of my friends in town last night and she didn't say anything about my weight loss even though I complimented her on the fact that she had lost some weight this summer. And her loss was about half of mine! I'm acknowledging that was aggravating, but also choosing not to let that get to me. I am so excited to forge ahead in my new and healthy lifestyle. I've lost 20 pounds already, so I'm already 25% of the way toward completing my goal!
