30 Pounds... GONE! (and Looking Forward to Today)

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Today the scale showed I have dropped 30 pounds from my highest weight of 3 years ago. I am so happy! Even some of my 8s are getting baggy! It is an amazing feeling. I was a 13 in high school, so being a size 8 just feels unreal to me. And, I actually am wondering if I'm really this 'thin' or if they are just making jeans bigger these days! emoticon But, I will celebrate today! Just with my joy and spreading my news. It is a wonderful feeling!

On another note... I homeschool, but my daughter went with a friend on a field trip today. Oh, wow! A whole day off! This has never happened before!!! I dropped her off at 7 am and she won't be home until 4 pm. So, what will I do???

...brick workout! I'll be riding 8-10 miles and running 2-3... just as soon as I'm done here!
...buy a new sports bra (I've outshrunk the ones I own!), a race bib & Lace Locks (for my tri!)
...see if I need my dress from Hawaii taken in for a party in a few weeks (I think I will!)
...do laundry
...maybe shop???
...take a nap (love my naps!)

It feels strange to have all of these hours of free time ahead of me. But, I'd better get off the computer and get started or I'll eat up all of my time. It's already 8 am!

    Great Job!!!!!

    I homeschool one of my children as well. Well, not really right now as he is doing Classical Conversations and has a "tutor" for all subjects. But, technically he is homeschooling (7th grade) and has since 4th!! I also have a daughter in high school that homeschooled during the middle school grades. It think is is GREAT!

    Very cool that you homeschool-I did for many years but got fried and sent them to school(except for first child who will graduate this May from homeschool).
    And, I'm sorry to say that 'yes' they have changed the sizes of jeans. 8s are the old 10s...I,too am bummed about that but it's still very cool that you are fading out of them. I am too and I'm stoked that I need a belt for my 2 favorite pairs. They were so saggy that I pulled them off without unbuttoning them!!!! SWEET!!! I buy mine from Sam's club-might be rejects but they are cheap and look great.
    I hope your brick went well today. I'm anxious to get my bike ready again and try the brick. I did once last summer-11 mile ride with a 1/2 mile run...very weird,rubbery legs.
    Love reading all that you do!!
    Last but not least: CONGRATS ON 30 LBS GONE!!!!!!!! WOO HOO!!!!!!

    emoticon on losing 30 pounds!!! That is awesome!

    It is very weird having a "quiet house" when you are used to having your kids around. But it is nice to get a whole list of things done. Enjoy your quiet day!
