  • Notes and findings: 
    • This is a big week – I weighed 146 pounds Wednesday morning prior to exercise. I’m not sure what’s causing this since I’m eating like a champ.  I bet it’s the combo of strength and running
    • My big kid worked out with me on Wednesday, and that was fun!  My little guy was taking a long nap and they didn’t synch their naps, so I figured just do it while one of the kids was up.  He watched and told me how hard I was working and would jump in and “work hard with Mommy!”
    • I focused more on hard exercise and did no walking, hence the fewer hours of activity this week.  It worked out fine though – 1.8 pounds down
    • I am now a very official size 8 in all brands and my natural waist is 28 inches.  My belly button measurement went down a half inch, as did my hips since mid-way testing
    • I’m feeling thin – I see it now in myself, which is nice.  There is nothing about my body in clothes that bothers me now.
    • I bought new bras – yay!  34C – so I’ve lost but not in cup size.  YAY!
    • May favorite swim suit from my “thin days” is too big – I cannot wear it in the water or the bottoms will fall off.  I’m sad about this because I love it – it’s the suit I bought for our honeymoon.  First world problems, but still…. I’m sad about it
    • I bought my first pair of skinny jeans today.  I haven’t taken the tags off yet… I’m not sure about them.  Ask me in 2 pounds!
    • Next week should be good.  I had a total of 3.5 cupcakes this week and I lost 1.8 pounds.  I’m expecting another pound next week.
Goodbye, lovely swimsuit... the only swimsuit I've ever truly loved. :(
