Below Seventh Grade Weight

I felt pretty good after hitting the Wal-Mart yesterday for new exercise clothes, but I wasn't prepared to be down another 3.8 lbs. today! This made me feel a lot better about maintaining last week.

When I got my booklet back, I saw that I have now gone below my seventh grade physical weight of 175 (this was in 1985, BTW). I am absolutely floored!

Today I went into Old Navy to look at the sale items. I tried on two pairs of size 10 jeans -- they fit OK but one was long and the other short, and that's how they fit. I decided to try on a pair of size 8 for fun, and they fit too! They're stretch, but so what? I have never worn a size 8 before!!!

Me -- a Medium?

While waiting for my credit union to open, I shot over to Wal-Mart looking for some replacement workout gear. I saw a pair of 8/10 exercise pants for $3. I figured, "I'll have them when I need them and they'll fit eventually."

I decided to try them on and THEY FIT. I couldn't believe it! I ended up getting another pair of workout pants (8/10, also $3), a tank sweater (8/10) for $4 and a tank workout top (12/14) for $3 (the tag said $7.50, so I was surprised when it rang up for less).

At the end of March, I was in Wal-Mart and I passed a clearance rack with a very cute black lacy skirt for $6.00. The only sizes left were 4, 6, 10 and 18. Since an 18 would have been a step in the wrong direction, I took a 10 into the dressing room. I was able to zip up the zipper but wasn't ready to wear it yet. I bought it anyhow, LOL.

When I got home today, I tried on the skirt ... it is now a perfect fit!

NSV -- Ring Size

Every year a ring vendor comes to my job to take orders. When we had a break in the action I came up to the table and had the rep size me. My ring finger is a size ... drumroll please ...


To put this in perspective, last year I was a size 9.5, and my wedding ring from 3.5 years ago is a size 12!
