The Proof Is In the Pudding. Or Jeans. Whatever.

Tuesday, August 01, 2017

I'm still up 1.6 pounds from my pre-travel madness weight. It's not that big of a deal, but it annoys me. I'm also hormonal, which isn't helping matters. So this weekend I went shopping and I felt like an utter cow. Udder cow? Anyway, I was feeling pretty terrible about my body but I saw some clothes and decided to try them on figuring it was a terrible idea and of course nothing would fit because I am a cow.

You know. Typical conversation in my head. :/

But you know what? The clothes did fit. In my new-normal size. Because even though I'm hormonal and maybe a bit bloated and I'm not feeling my best, I am still 1.6 pounds away from the lightest I have ever been as a fully grown human.

And that feels pretty damn good.

So, little negative asshat who lives in my brain, you STFU. I'm doing great thankyouverymuch. And the hormones will pass, and the 1.6 pounds will come off, along with a few more of their friends, and I WILL get there.

    YES! I know this feeling, too. I recently went bathing suit shopping. I kept reaching for larger sizes and realized they wouldn't fit and had to find totally different styles and then go... geez, that medium top and large bottom look WAY too small... but, I might as well see how small... AND THEN THEY ACTUALLY FIT!
    Nothing makes one feel more like a manatee than shopping for revealing items like this, but, I couldn't believe it. Guess my inner eye needs to catch up with my outer self. lol.

    Sounds like you are doing great and if your clothes fit, then you are right on track.
    And tell that mean voice in your head to stop it now!

    I can gain and lose that much in one day depending on the amount of salt I have eaten. Hang in there. You can do it!!!
