FINALLY.. it has happened to me...

Wednesday, June 14, 2017

The last month has just sucked for me.

Nothing has been wrong, really, it isn't that.

It is the fact that My weight seemed so STAGNANT. The scale barely budged. I might have lost 1/2 a pound a week MAYBE. And I'm not close enough to my goals that the weight should be that slow yet.

However, as frustrated as I was, and I had thoughts of giving up, quitting, then I realized, that isn't the ONLY reason I'm doing this.

Yes, I want to lose weight, of course.

However, I want to be healthy, and THIS is how I get healthy! So even if I didn't lose another pound, another inch, being fit and active is how I'm healthy. So why would I quit?

Regardless, the scale finally went down to the next tenth. To the next grouping of pounds I want to lose. It was AMAZING to see it there.

I'm going to stay off the scale for a bit, I have a vacation coming up and though I plan on eating very healthy during the entire trip (I like the way that I eat) I don't need to feel discouraged like I was.

That being said, I'm in this for the long haul. Plus, I have a girls trip to Vegas and a wedding to look good for!

Speaking of, I got the bridesmaid dress picked (we got to pick our own pretty much) and I have to order it... but what size do I order?

I'm not suggesting that I order two sizes down because I'll lose weight (though the wedding is 4 months away) I'm really in between sizes. One is large, the smaller size is only a bit snug. I'm smaller on top than in the hips and thighs, and this is A-line, so ordering smaller isn't a bad idea, because if I order the larger size, it will ALREADY have to be altered. I tried it on, it was already too large.

I'm debating.

Well, I'm happy, things are progressing!
