Thanks all. Shopping was remarkably successful. I didn't go up a size like I thought I would. My niece was actually quite helpful, despite her near physical perfection... And we had fun. I came away with 1 jean, 2 capris (all size 6), and 6 tops (both S and XS) so... My tears and anxiety were for naught!

Imperfection is important. If we were all perfect, then there would be no such thing as growth, and everyone would be extremely boring, which is, paradoxically, not that perfect.-- Dr. Matt

I can imagine that any other day, perhaps, this very small weight loss would feel so much less significant and bummer-inducing. How did the shopping go anyway?

I hope the shopping worked out. I often find it's more fun than I think it will be.

Good luck!

Your accomplishments in the realm of weigh loss are epic from what I see on your page. Grant yourself the grace you need to believe that if you can do THAT --- you can do the maintenance thing.

Just keep doing whatever you did to do what you need to do to maintain!

Whew...did I say that out load? emoticon

Really, you can do it. Keep being Sparkly. And check out IOWL Team. Renee Stephens believes that people CAN be relaxed and happy around food...even pizza! She has some great tools to help you move in that direction!

XOXO

Could fix this.

Darn it.

I've gained weight.

only 3 lbs. But... today is supposed to be the day I begin "maintenance" for the summer. To learn to be the weight I am and be okay with it, through the hardest season... where everyone sees your skin.

But, I decided I needed to weigh in, despite the dread I was feeling. And now, I want to curl up in a ball with a bottle of wine and a pan of brownies... even though I know that is what got me here in the first place.

Ugh... being injured and bored is not working out so well for me. I've got to get my nutrition under control.

And I still have to go clothes shopping today because I promised my husband months ago that TODAY, TODAY I would go shopping. Today I would buy some things that make me feel good.

But, instead, I'm dreading it. It's like the Sword of Damocles. Come on... 4:15... (When my MIL takes the kids for me so I can do this darn shopping). I just want to get this OVER.
