Don't ask me why, but I'm totally updating when I should be sleeping. I clicked over here from my Twitter profile and was looking at my blog, and I realized it just really needs a quick update.
I haven't kept ya'll updated on my weight loss. I am still losing. I've hit the 33 pounds lost mark. I'll take it. :) I'm eager for more to come off, but that takes me refocusing a lot.
I'm amazed at how many pieces of clothing I put on that are too big. I've got 2 pairs of jeans that fit. The others start to fall off after I wear them for 30 minutes or so. I constantly am adding to the pile of shirts in the bottom of the closet that are too big. Thankfully a lot of winter tops that were too small last year look amazing now, so I'm still not having to really clothing shop (thanks to hand me downs as well). It's such a change to pick what I'm wearing based on what's not too big instead of what's too small. I don't mind though. My waredrobe is dwindling, and sometimes I go to work looking like a ragamuffin, but at least I'm a much smaller ragamuffin!
I used to say I couldn't really see the difference in me yet. I can see it in pictures now. (I think I'm close to be able to see it in the mirror now which I know sounds insane.) The one along the side of this blog makes me want to gag. This weekend I was looking on Facebook at pics from our January Disney Trip to share with someone, and I thought, "I really should print these finally for my album." I don't like how I looked in any of the pictures. Those shirts were XL, and now if I wear an XL it's to work out, or I've got to tie it at the waist like a teenage girl! I look back at those pics and wonder how I ever thought looking like that was ok. Disney (both trips) were amazingly happy memories of mine. I just wish my body had been as "happy."
Anyways, I'm still losing - slowly but surely - when I'm not having my setbacks. Last week was really bad, but I'm back on it this week. I've started running 3 mornings a week with a friend, and thankfully the effects of all my working out this summer haven't disappeared. I can run for 2 minutes solid when I push myself, so I interval train those days (walking and running). I'm trying to come up with a routine that works during the school year. 2-3 hours in the gym a day this summer wasn't so bad really, but I just don't have that many hours in my day anymore (and Sprinkles would miss me too much). :)
Anyways, like I said, just needed to do a quick update. My bed and fuzzy blanket are screaming my name. May God bless you all.
