End of week 2

Here we are and its the end of week 2. This was a hard week for me. We had Bill’s birthday on Saturday and The ensuing giant ice cream sundae that we all shared. ( I ate way more than my share). And well…. I guess that was the only thing that should have thrown me off, but I seemed to get derailed early and I struggled to get back on track.

I started my new job yesterday. I am working for 3 hours a day, 4 days per week at a tiny little Thai place in town. Its just 5 tables and a ton of take out, but the chef/owner, Lin, is great. And I get a shift meal when I work. Tonight I got Pad Thai and brought it home to share with Bill. Tomorrow, we will be having green curry chicken. YAY!

Well, back to the weight loss journey. We had a major success tonight. After losing nearly 2 inches off of my bust, Bill thought that I should try to get into the dress that I bought for the rehearsal dinner. Some of you may know that I bought the most beautiful silk dress from Ann Taylor, in what I thought was my size, and it was the last one, and it was a $215 dress that I got for $30. Well, when it arrived, it was too small. Or I should say that I was 3 inches too BIG! So I hung the dress above our bed for the last month, so that I would see it every time I walked past the bedroom and I would remember my goal. Well, I slinked into the dress tonight and, after a bit of struggling with a snagged zipper, we got it zipped up! I couldn’t breath all that great….. I would still like to lose .5-1.0 inches. But after that it is perfect.

Thats me. No make up and my hair is not done, and its a crappy cell phone pic….. but that is me in the dress. I love it!

For the Spring in2 Action challenge, I lost 1lb. Not the best week there…. I’ll admit that. But I did lose .5inches on my bust, 1.75inches on my waist, and .25inches on my hips. Plus I am up to 9 military style push ups. I am so very proud of me for that. WOOT! – No girlie knee stuff for me. I am bad ass and I’ll just keep getting better. And that is the most important thing. Bill also lost 5lbs this week, so I think thats pretty awesome too. Go Team Muffin Topless!!!!

Talk again soon.
