My goal weight for yesterday's official weigh-in was 162 pounds. I beat it again, 161.5! Go Me!! In November, my family went to Laramie, Wyoming for a swim meet with my two older children. The atmosphere in the pool area at the rec center was about 80 degrees and it was blizzarding outside (no surprise, it IS Laramie, right?). I went over to WalMart to see if they had any shorts on clearance or anything I could wear that would be cooler than what I had with me. They had a whole isle of summer clothes for $1 a piece!! They had a ton of shorts, so I picked up a size 14 (for the meet), a couple pairs of 10's and a couple pairs of 8's. I was determined to fit into those 8's by summer (and if they didn't fit, I have a lot of friends...they were only $1!!). They will fit by summer!! I tried on the 10's yesterday, just to see if I could get them zipped since my size 12 pants are getting loose. I got them on and got them zipped without having to lay on the bed to do so!! They were still a little snug to be comfortable, but I have at least another 11 weeks before I would be wearing them!! I've lost almost 10 pounds in the last 6 weeks, hopefully they will be too big by then and I'll just have to go to the 8's and give the 10's away!! I NEVER remember being less than a 12! In high school, I know I had two favorite pairs of jeans, one was a 12 and one a 14, but they were essentially the same size. Wow! And I thought I was fat back then. Hmm. Here I am 4 kids and 18 years later, looking and feeling great in this body. Funny how your mind changes as you grow older, huh?
