Its been a roller coster of life for the last month. I finished up a huge event at work on tuesday and recovered from the fallout of work undone on Wednesday. Slowly catching up to go on vacation next week. The never-ending cycle of catching up will start over after that. HA!
My weight has been on the up down again this month, but I'm not unhappy. Its been hitting lower lows and lower highs, so I'm still trending downwards. That is progress. Its not fast, but its still progress.
My water intake has been diabolical. Which is a big hindrance to weight loss. So once again, I need to take steps to make water drinking a more important part of my life. In the past (pre-sleeve), I would simply down a liter of water in one go and feel better. Of course, that is impossible now. Sip Sip Sip Sip. Need to get on track with that.
Onto the NSV. Winter is creeping into Texas, and we are finally getting temps into the 40's and high 30's (I know...thats not cold compairatively!). So this weekend past I did some shopping.
1. Knee High Boots
I bought 2 pair... one black, one brown. I don't know why, but I love to wear dresses to the office, especially in the winter, dress, tights, boots. Best!! My Feet have shrunk with my WL and I'm back down to a size 10 (from an 11). AND... the NSV part... the regular width boots FIT OVER MY CALVES!!!!!!!! I am so excited!
2. Sweater Dresses
1 bought 2 sweater dresses. A sweater dress is not something that I EVER thought that I would be able to wear... granted, I look a little lumpy, but I got a long tight cami to try and smooth some of that out. Wore one yesterday and felt pretty darn great.
3. Size L
One of the sweater dresses is a Large. It was so crazy to put it on and see that it fit! I also got a blouse that was a Large as well. I had picked up an XL and realized that it didn't look good...because it was TOO BIG! Mind Blown
4. Tucked in
final NSV today ... I am wearing said size L blouse and it is tucked into my skirt. That is something that I would NEVER have done before. Feels good.
Here is a pic today.
Blouse - L
Skirt - 2X (but its a small 2x and I can slip it off over my hips without undoing the button... I think aother 5lbs down and I won't be able to wear it anymore - and I love it, so I'm going to wear it as much as possible for now)
Boots - 10 regular (LOVE!!)
a little compairison.
