Buying clothes is once again FUN!!!

Friday, March 07, 2008

Okay, so I now that I am officially in maintenance, I figured it was okay to keep buying new clothes. I found some really cute pants clearanced out at Target that were to die for! $13 bucks, too! So I figured, I would try them on first and grabbed the large out of, I don't know, habit. I went to put them on and wow! they were TOO BIG!!! I gladly put them back on the shelf and grabbed the mediums and was so excited I had to contain myself in the dressing room because (drum roll, please) they FIT!!! I can't tell you the last time I was able to try on mediums and like the way that they fit! That happened to me all day yesterday as I was trying on clothes, I went to go for the bigger size and had to opt for the smaller one instead! I can honestly say that I was having fun trying on clothes! What a feeling! I am so stinking excited I can't hardly contain myself!

Things have improved much this week. I am still feeling it in my chest and am going to take some more of the herbs this morning. I want to be completely over this by next week! I went to the gym yesterday and did the elliptical and my stamina is still not all there. It was a hard workout for me. I am going to go spinning this morning, but keep the intensity down. Eating has been good. I haven't been tracking what I am eating, but I don't really feel like I have to. Unless the scale says otherwise, I want to get to a point to where I can "just eat" and not always feel like I am tracking everything. I know that if I start gaining then tracking will once again become my companion, but I feel like my relationship with food is good enough and I know what I am supposed to be eating that it isn't a big deal. I am feeling great, though and am so very happy to finally be here. I am keeping my weigh ins to once a week so we'll see how things look come Sunday or Monday. I just want it to be kept between the 140 - 145 mark. I know that as my lovely TOM rolls around it will push up to the 145 mark. Gotta love that water weight! The joys of being female!

I got a massage for my birthday and I think I am going to use it next week. I have been debating when I should schedule it and DH took some time off next week so I think I will go next Friday. I am so excited to be able to sit and relax. I haven't decided if I am going to do the full 60 min or break it up into two different sessions. DH says I should break it up and try a couple of different techniques. I don't know. Decisions, decisions!

Glad it is Friday. It will be nice to veg this weekend. I am looking forward to it. I still can't believe it is time to change the clocks again. That ought to go well with Mr. Baby. It is always hard trying to acclimate the little guys to the time change -- I hate it! I am off for now, laundry is calling to me (love it -- NOT!!!)

    GO FOR THE FULL HOUR! Anything less is just a tease! Take if from a licensed massage therapist. I will be shopping next month for my clothes for our big anniversary trip. I don't want to wait too long so I can't find the things I want. I just hope I can still wear them when it comes time. Many hugs, Ruth

    Congratulations on making it to maintenance! Clothes shopping after losing weight has got to the greatest reward ever!!! The sale items always tend to be in the smaller sizes, don't ya think? Keep up the maintenance...you're a wonderful inspiration to us all. Mary
