Wednesday Weigh In: Size 8!

I still don't have my computer back, so handmade holidays is still on hold.

But I can point your attention up to the address bar on this blog.

See it?

Notice anything different?

OMG - Terry got me a website for Christmas!

A whole website!

Go there, check it out!  We are still working at making it the way I want.  It's still rough.  But isn't it a thing of beauty?  I'm so excited about it!

Once we get it into a workable website, I'll have a big launch for everyone.  Until then, every time you read this blog, take a look up at the address bar where it says that this blog is on my WEBSITE!  And it's OK to smile a little when you see it.  I do every time :)


Now onto the weigh in.

I was at the Thrift Store with the kids today and thought it would be nice to find a dress to wear to Terry's birthday dinner tomorrow night.  The kids were busy playing with the toys, so I skulked over to the dress section.  I started at size 16 - because those dresses usually fit me best.  :(

I tried on one.  Way too big.  So I moved on over to the size 13/14 section.  Still the dress were too big.  Huh?

I finally settled on a pretty purple dress for tomorrow and I couldn't resist picking up this little gold number while I was at it.


And they are both size 8!  I just about broke down right there in the store and cried.  And cried and cried.


No more double digits for me!


Starting Weight: 174 lbs 09/12/11
Current Weight: 159 lbs 12/28/11
Target Weight: 150 lbs

Weight Change: 15 lbs (15 whole glorious lbs!)
Remaining to Lose: 9 lbs
Avg. Lost Per Week: -1 lbs

Look at that flat butt.

I still have some tummy fat to lose (9 more lbs), but holy smokes!  When did this happen?

 And that slit.  Yummy!

Now the only problem I am having is that I have no place to actually wear this dress - nooooo!

So there you have it - the two best presents I could have received for Christmas.  A website and a new heart valve (which in turn helped me finally lose 15 lbs). :D
