So... Here's What Happened...

Feb. 2010

Clear back in February I was at work at a dinner theater we were hosting. I was talking to the husband of one of my coworkers. He's a personal trainer. I told him how I really wanted to lose a pant size because I have like 25 pair of size 10 pants and I'm now in a 12. After talking to me for a long time all about eating right, exercise, confidence in looks, etc. he said his suggestion to me was to just go buy a bunch of size 12 pants. He said I was confident in how I look and if the ONLY reason I wanted to drop a size was to fit into a bunch of pants that I wouldn't succeed because that isn't enough motivation. He was right. I like my looks. I like my curves. A size 12 is still a lot smaller than I've been in the past and it's a good steady size for me. I bought a bunch of size 12 pants and was as happy as a clam... I hear clams are pretty happy.

Let's fast forward to today. I think I've put on a little... nothing major. All my size 12s are fitting pretty nicely. I'm still happy with how I look AND THEN... I had to get an exam for my new life insurance policy and the lady took my weight. 190 FREAKIN' POUNDS!!! What the ??? I'm only 5'2! I'm the same pant size and pretty close to the same measurements as I was at 165-172 lbs. I wanted to throw the scale. So anyways... I'm dusting off this old blog *aaaahhhh choooo* and gonna see what I can do to lose a little of something or another. Here are a few current pics...





*sigh* Gym and salads here I come...
