I wore my size 16 uniform pants last night and my v neck smaller top. These were clothes I couldn't get into anymore last year. They fit well, in fact the top is getting to big. You lose weight so slowly, at least I do, I can convince myself I am still as huge as I have always been. FAT, FAT, FAT! I have gone from a 24 to a size 16 and I still feel so fat. My co-workers noticed though. They hadn't seen me in 6 weeks. I had so many compliments,not just because my bust was smaller but because I am smaller all over.
I had huge saddle bags. You all know what fat ladies butts look like. I hated mine. Well now, although big my butt is tapered. Waist going wider to butt and then to legs. Used to be waist going to huge fat pads down to buttocks and then to legs. It is hard to describe but if you're heavy you know what I mean.
I went out today to mail my packages from my sales and wore my black pants. Last month I was so thrilled that I could squeeze into them. Now I am thinking they are too loose! I don't think have lost so much more weight but with my weight lifting and exercise I am sculpturing my body into a more feminine shape. I like it. I have so much farther to go but I am getting looks again. You all know what looks I am talking about. I am 51 years old and I am getting looks again. It feels good.
I have been really busy. Not only do I have this big sale I have 3 referral sales that I will work on this weekend. It is alot of work, not the kind of money I get from nursing, but I love it. I love old jewelry, glass, pottery and china. This is fun. I like making my customers money, I like making money and I like being this busy. There is such a thrill to buying a treasure only you know what it is worth and re-selling it for 100% or more profit. fun.
I am off until next Thursday. I plan on cooking south beach all week.
