Weekly WI

Between TOM and a wicked cold that zapped my appetite, I lost another 4 lbs this week. I've lost 96 lbs with WW -- everyone is very excited because it won't take long before I earn the 100 lb magnet!

I still feel like crap -- whenever I get a cold, the cough is always the last thing to go. I am opening some windows since it's mild today.

NSV -- People Noticing!

Our parking lot is about two blocks away from our office. On my way there I walk past an elementary school. This morning I was taking my normal route and one of the elem school's security guards (a cutie!) stopped me to tell me how great I looked and to ask me what I was doing.

I told him that it has taken 2.5 years and how I did the exercise thing and gave WW a major plug, and he commented that one of his colleagues was wondering about her own weight. I should have given him my card (smirk) and had her call me.

This alone made my entire day. And all this time I thought nobody was looking, LOL!

I gained 1.4 on Oct. 1 and last Sunday I lost 0.2! I worked the program (after I binged on Sunday, LOL) and today I lost 2.2.

Only 16 pounds to Onederland!

NSV -- Size 18!

This morning I took out a pair of black trousers to wear to work. It wasn't until I got there that I realized that the waist is really big on me now (the pants are a size 26). I am wearing a binder clip in the back to hold them together, LOL.

I realized that there is no way I can buy tons of new fall/winter stuff, so I walked up to the local Goodwill center to find some slacks and a brown jacket. I found a brown jacket that would go well with a skirt I picked up elsewhere, and I found a pair of size 18 straight brown microfiber-type pants. I figured if they didn't fit now, they eventually would.

After lunch, I shut my office door and tried everything on. No need to grow into the pants -- they fit now! I haven't worn a size 18 since my freshman year of college, some 16 years ago!

The best part is that the pants were only half price -- so I got a blazer, a pair of pants (that are close enough in color I could wear them as a suit) and a book (I'm always buying books) for $18.50! Go me!
