Today was my second WW weigh in!
As I said in my last post, I’ve been mad busy this week, but I’ve been a pretty good girl. However, I’ve let myself indulge a little with my weekly points (I got another gyro when I went to the fair on Friday with my family, oops haha). I even didn’t worry about what I got on my Subway order last night when I got dinner with a friend, since I’m usually pretty healthy when I go there. Honestly, though, I was worried that my little indulgences would backfire.Well, I weighed myself this morning, and the results came back pretty well!
I lost 2.4 lbs! Which is small, but amazing for me. That brings my total lost since starting WW to 3.4 lbs, and to about 6 (I’m not exactly sure) since summer started. Now that I’m at 186.6, I’m back where I was in April, before all of the stress and such made me get off track. Except, I’m even better, because…
My waist shrank 2 inches this week!!!
My sister kept telling me all of this week that I look a lot thinner, and I noticed that for the first time in, well, ever, I’m starting to have a really defined waist. Well, now I believe her.
So, after I weighed myself and got all “happy, happy, joy, joy” over it (whoever gets that reference gets a cookie haha), Mom brought out a surprise that she’s been waiting to give me for the past few days. It was a bunch of professional clothes from Dress Barn! I’m so happy, because I have literally nothing that I can wear for the first month or so of student teaching (when it’s still sweltering outside) that is conservative enough for a classroom, and now I have all kinds of nice clothes! She got me a beautiful tan blazer, and some nice button downs and pants, but my favorite was the dress she got me. It’s absolutely gorgeous, but there was one problem: the highest size she could find was a 12. I figured I’d try it on anyway, even though I doubted it would fit.
And guess what? It fits!!!
(Insert girly squeal)
I would post a picture of the dress, but when I tried it on I realized the zipper was bad, so she’s exchanging it for one that’s not broken on her way to work tomorrow. Trust me, though, when I say it’s gorgeous, I mean, it makes me look like an After photo. Mom was speechless. I may even wear it for my graduation recital instead of a gown. I will be posting a photo as soon as I get the new dress.
So, that’s how awesome my day has been so far, and it’s not even 11:00. Today is my last day parking cars, too, so hopefully life will go somewhat back to normal this week. Like I said, I’ll be busy, but at least I’ll have the energy (maybe) to get up in the morning and go running before work.
