Ahhhh nothing like a 1.6 loss to put you in a much better place! I am happy to be down to 156.8 which is a good sign things are back to normal. Eating healthy and working out these past few days has been great. Stress at work has simmered down for the week, and Ive noticed Ive felt a lot calmer and less tired, so its something to say for how much stress takes a toll on your body.
Im glad to see the weight loss because I didnt have the best shopping trip this afternoon. Because its so nice out and I had pulled out some of my summer clothes, I was disapointed to note that the ones I had hoped to fit in better this year dont look much different and then there are some that are too big. This leaves me with just a few things to wear. I thought I would go to the store after work and get some capris,etc. Well it was a frustrating trip. Apparently I am in between sizes so if I go a size up, the waist is too big. If I go a size down, the hips and thighs are skin tight. I was also unhappy that I was in a size 14 rather than a comfortable 12 which I have been wearing. I realize sizes change from store to store and style to style, but no one likes to go up sizes, especially when they have maintained a healthy weight and are losing some inches in various places. Apparently those inches are not enough in the hips and thighs. Its just disapointing. Shirts are the same way - I was swimming in larges, but some mediums were too tight. Others were fine which is good that I have basically gone down a size in tops, but what I really want is to be going down with my lower half. I also hardly found anything, so apparently I will be going naked this summer! JK- but I seriously will be wearing the same 5 shirts and 2 pairs of capris if this keeps up.
I guess when you lose weight, you really think that you will be able to go into any store and find clothes that fit and feel great. I dont always feel that way and it sucks sometimes. Having experiences like this makes me feel down on myself, which i dont like to feel either since I have worked hard to get this body and I want to feel good in what I wear.
