NSV and Scale victory.

Friday, August 02, 2013

So I have been eating on the indulgent side for the last 2 weeks. I'm back in the saddle today!!

I'll start with the NSV.

I am in a wedding for my good friend in two months. In March we tried on our bridesmaid dresses, and although the 18 was big on me, the 16 wouldn't zip all the way. Yesterday I went to the Bridal store and told the clerk I needed to get my dress. She asked what size, and I told her 18, and she looked at me kind of funny, but pulled the 18 off the rack. She took me back to the dressing room, and I tried it on, it was huge around the bust and waist, but it was last time when the 16 wouldn't zip up.

At this point she is asking me how things are, and I step out of the room. She smiles and says, "I knew you were a 16! Let me go get the other dress."

I was dreading putting the 16 on again, and not being able to zip it up... again. But figured I would humor her. I went back into the dressing room with my two kids by the way.... that was fun... and tried on the 16. I was having trouble zipping it myself, and asked the clerk to help me. The 6 yr old who was trying to just wasn't tall enough, and the 8 yr old was too busy wondering about the red line that my bra makes on my chest. Fun stuff.

The clerk zipped it right up and beamed at me. I stared in shock. I have dropped a dress size... No way... She pointed out that the straps will need some alteration as they are too big, but seemed pleased at how much better that size fit me. I was pleased but still in a state of shock. Remember I've been eating not so good for me stuff regularly the past two weeks, and figured I was back at square one again.


How cool is that?!? Just the motivation I needed to get back on my game.

The scale victory? Well even though I have been a very bad Whole30er, and have been eating junk these last two weeks... My weight today is 185.4. Same as it was on July 8 when I started the introducing other foods to my Whole30 plan. I weighed myself 6 times to make sure it wasn't a fluke. Yeah... I'm a little OCD.

This is really working for me. So I packed my lunch and breakfast today. I am getting back on track. My size 16 dress may need some alterations by October. But since I am becoming an accomplished seamstress... I feel confident enough to do it myself.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous day today!!
