Day 662- Shopping NSV and Wedding Woes (With Pics!)

Monday, September 23, 2013

This weekend I went to a friend's wedding and had a great time. But I find it very hard to track when traveling.

But before I left I stopped by the mall to get some earrings and saw that Elder-Beerman was having a sale on dresses. So to humor myself I tried on a size 10 Calvin Klein navy maxi dress, and it fit! So then, deciding to push my limit, I tried on a size 8 shirt dress, and it fit too!

Granted they were both stretchy and flowing material, without zippers, but the fact that I was even able to try them on blew my mind!

Then we went to the wedding in Lexington, KY and it was beautiful.

I also had some wine with dinner, which I wouldn't usually do, because I feel like alcohol is such an empty calorie item when it really comes down to it. I could have just as easily toasted with water but oh well.

Anyways, got back and played soccer last night which hopefully dropped a few pounds. Last night the scale ready 184.6! Yikes! 6 pounds in a weekend! But we all know that's impossible unless I truly ate 21,000 more calories than I burned. Definitely not. This morning the scale read 182.8, which is still up 3 pounds, but I'm going to drink a lot of water today and try and flush some of the extra salt out of my body.

I also packed lunch so I could very closely track what I'm eating today.

So yes, I had a gain this week, but I'm sure I can hopefully get back into the 170s this week.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

    I hope you bought that blue dress!! :-D Goodness me, you look stunning in it! Glad you were able to cut loose a bit and enjoy the wedding. Wine is a must at a wedding I figure, so good on ya for toasting with it! I already see on your status updates that the weight is dropping again, which of course it will. Your lifestyle now wouldn't let it stay on ya, just keep plugging away and the sky is the limit for you. :-)

    The dresses looked awesome. Doesn't matter if they are stretchy, they looked fabulous on you - I mean you were rocking them! Good job not overacting about the scale after the wedding. I have one coming up next month. I think I won't even weigh myself until a week after I get back. I tend to be too reactive!

    Both those dresses are lovely on you. Like me you seem well endowed in the chest and that often makes clothes hard to fit. I can hardly wait till I am back in a 34B if that ever happens.

    Congratulations on fitting into those beautiful dresses--they both look gorgeous on you and I'm sure it felt great. Don't worry about the few extra pounds. They'll be gone before you know it as long as you go back to your normal habits. I had long struggled with overcompensating after periods of overeating and have found that it's typically counterproductive. Keep up the great work, girl!

    That maxi dress looks absolutely perfect. Did you buy it?
My weight went up a lot last weekend after my friend's wedding but it was back down again by the Wednesday. Water is the miracle liquid : p

    You look beautiful in both dresses and you looked amazing in the last pic at the wedding! You're right though, you couldn't possibly gain that much weight in 2 days... A couple of days of tracking and getting rid of the extra salt in your body should put you right back to normal!

Also, I LOVE wine! But I have learned that unless I feel it's a special occasion, I won't ever drink it with food... Your body then is trying to get rid of the toxins so it can't focus on metabolizing the food you just ate! So good for you for not having it too often!

You're doing great and you are such an inspiration! Hope you have a great week!

    The dresses both looked amazing on you! Congrats on good news trying on clothes. And you are right, you'll get back to where you were this week. You can't spend all of life avoiding weekends with friends celebrating a wedding! Good for you!

    Wow! I hope you bought the blue one for sure! You look marvelous!!! I think your plan to drink plenty and get back on track right away is it. I read somewhere that alcohol slows down the metabolism too - so that might be what the change is about. It makes logical sense though -- seeing alcohol is a depressant, right?

Anyway -- you are looking fabulous -- keep doing what you're doing!!!!!

    Wow! You are getting so thin! I bet the gain is mostly from salty food and after normal eating and lots of water you will bounce back fast.
