One of the items on my shopping list this week was a pair of black sandals. I never found one, and now I know why: It turns out I already had a pair that I had long stopped wearing because my feet got too wide. Even with the strap all the way out to the last hole, they were just too tight. Yesterday I consciously saw them, apparently for the first time in years ... I adjusted the strap all the way in and they fit like new!

Nothing like shopping in your own closet!

Also, this morning a local church came to pick up some of my old clothes for a clothing drive. They got practically everything I wore last summer ... from size 26/28 dresses I was able to wear several years ago to 18/20s I bought just last year. It saddened me to see hundreds of dollars walking out the door, but hey, I'll never need them again, right?

Shopping NSV!

Remember a few months ago (February) when I described my maiden voyage at New York & Company?

I saw an outfit I loved but didn't feel comfortable spending over $100 on all
three pieces.

Well, yesterday I was there and I saw the skirt. I tried it on and bought it.

In a size 8.

For $5.99.

I bought several pants, skirts and a pair of capris in a size 8, two size 10/M dresses and size 7 undies! I'm amazed!

Today's WI

Three weeks ago (5/20) I lost 3.8 lbs and cracked my seventh grade weight. Then two weeks ago (5/27) I gained 4 lbs due to TOM, not enough water, and deciding to have all of my weekly allowance. Last week I took off 3.8, which was nice but I wasn't completely satisfied.

Today I lost another 1.2, which puts me on track to make my 150 overall milestone very soon -- hopefully this month, helped me earn my 135-lb WW star today, and only makes me five pounds heavier than, uh ... someone who caught up with me about 1.5 years ago.

I am off all week and plan to step up my activity in a big way.
