Getting so close

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

I've been hovering between 199 and 203 the past two weeks. Kind of frustrating when I feel like a 4 lb yoyo. But there is great news on the horizon. You see, I have a goal skirt. I thought I wouldn't be able to fit into it until I was 165, but look at me at 202 as of today and getting so close to being able to wear it. It is only a fraction of an inch too small. OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH so close!

Here I am in the skirt 5 years ago:

But I know I'm looking great even at where I am now. I'm shopping at my favorite store again (Ann Taylor LOFT) and not looking back! I'm solidly in a size 14 right now. If I keep it up, I could be a size 12 by Christmas!

Here I am in a cute dress for a wedding this last week in Las Vegas:

I know that with as slow as the weight is coming off, I'm doing this right. 1 to 2 lbs a week is what they say and I've definitely been creeping along at 1 lb a week on average. In January it will be 1 year since I started on this great loss stretch! If I can be down 52 lbs by then, I will have reached a wonderful goal! 1 lb a week for a year!
