Moving Right Along...



I lost another 2 pounds on Saturday, bringing me to over 30 pounds lost since my WW restart. Yay! I can't wait until we have another health fair at work...I'm guessing it will be in June like last year. If I get another dipstick like last year, I'll just tell him, "Dude, I've lost over 40 pounds since last year. Chill out!" Once I lose another 16 pounds, I'll no longer morbidly obese...I think that's what the Wii Fit told me yesterday. I finally have a Wii age younger than my own age too...I'm down to 28 from age 63 three weeks ago :)

Thanks to AntGirl, I have some new workout wear!! In her comment, she suggested to try JCPenney. On Friday, I decided to hit the mall and see if I could find something! I had not shopped there in years and remembered the plus-sized area as a place no then 20-something girl would find anything. Well, I was shocked at the selections available now. I found a mother lode of cute workout clothes for 50% off. With the 15% extra coupon given away at the door for your entire purchase, I saved a ton! I will have to make another shopping trip there soon.

Also, I purchased a dress for my sister's wedding that is quickly coming up in May. About a month ago, I had found a cute dress in the right color for only 44 dollars. Well, when I was ready to purchase it a week later, all the sizes except 14 were sold out online! The only other dresses that didn't look like crap were at least double that amount. I crossed my fingers and kept checking back to see if it would get restocked. Last week, my prayers were answered and a size 20 was available. I would have preferred a size 22 based on what I'm wearing now, but I figured if I lost another 15 pounds by then, it would work fine. With a 25% off coupon code, I figured it would be a good deal. My dress arrived yesterday, and I was STUNNED to realize it fit perfectly! Here's a link to the dress...CLICK...it looks like only black is available now, but mine is sapphire blue. It zipped easily and I didn't have to suck in my gut or learn how to breathe without moving a muscle. I even thought I looked cute in it. Believe me, I never feel cute, but my mind has been shifting in the past few weeks. I think all the exercise must be doing it to me...I'm still about 75 pounds away from my 2005 low, but I'm only 2 sizes away from what I wore then...in some items, I'm only one away. My body really must be firming up much more than back then. I'll take whatever changes I can get!
