BLC Week 3

Sunday, March 27, 2011

This week I started out dragging my feet, just to tired to exercise. emoticon
I also had a little trouble staying in my calorie range a couple of days, for some reason I felt a little hungrier than usual. emoticon I did my best to not allow the hunger to turn into a binge and managed to only eat an extra 200-400 calories over my range. In the past, I know I could have consumed well over 1000 calories.

This week I also had to attend a funeral for a close family friends grandmother who passed away. This meant I had to go shopping for something to wear, since most of my clothes are to big for me now. emoticon

Shopping for funeral attire at the beginning of Spring is not an easy task, everything is so bright emoticonand colorful emoticon. I managed to find a dress that worked but I needed something to help pull my tummy in a bit. I decided to try on some "shapewear" to improve my figure. Wow, and I mean Wow not in a good way. I got a full workout in the fitting room emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon, I worked up a sweat trying on what looked like bike shorts or leggings. It was like trying to put on a wetsuit. emoticon The worst part is, they did absolutely nothing for my tummy or my back, I think I pulled a muscle or two trying to get one of them off. emoticon

After all that, I returned the dress I bought and found something at home (a little big) that worked. The best part, I received compliments on how good I looked from friends emoticon I haven't seen in years. emoticon

    So sorry for your friend's loss of her grandmother.

    I had to laugh at your blog since I went through the same thing with trying on something that ended up feeling like a straight jacket after I got it on!! I though I was going to have to call someone to help me get out of it!!!

    Glad you found a nice outfit and congrats on things fitting looser!!!!

    Let's go DIVAS ---- we will just sail right through Week 4!!!!!

    Though I'm sorry to hear of your friend's loss, and that you were too tired to exercise, I have to say that your description of what happened in that dressing room gave me a good chuckle. I'm lauging WITH you, not AT you, because boy, have I been there. And no doubt will be again.

    Look at it this saved some money! I've been altering my clothes now that I have my sewing machine with me again. No way am I going to buy end-of-winter clothes when I'll be another size smaller by the time they're back in season! emoticon

    Lot of mixed emotions through this blog, going through a death with someone is strenuous, hang in there. It will get better!
