Talk about a roller coaster…
Last week: -1
This week: +1
Total: (still) -39.4
I had last week as 39.6 loss… got the .4/.6 mixed up. I reviewed MFP and showed where I was actually at. Either way, I lost a pound last week- putting me at the FORTY POUND MARK- and then gained it back this week. It happens. I had a crappy weekend and ate too much pizza. I tracked it and I knew what I was doing… but I’m back on track so there’s no need to worry.
The thing I’m really excited about- and that I have been wanting to post about but haven’t hit it to be able to- is how close Big Daddy and I are to hitting a total 100 lb loss between the both of us. We’ve lost 96.4 lbs combined as of today! He’s down 57 lbs, can you believe it!? Hopefully in the next few weeks we’ll reach that 100 lb total loss mark.
I have some goals for myself right now anyway… check out this dress I was talking about, my motivation dress:
Notice a fun little stalker in those photos anywhere?
I was able to zip up the dress, but sans-bra. (Yes I know… BOOBS.) It bunched in the back (like it wouldn’t lay flat and wasn’t fitting where it was supposed to) and was very tight over my stomach- it’s hard to see because it’s black, but you can kind of tell.
It would be awesome to wear this to the wedding we’re attending in five weeks. It is a size 14, and I’m staying true at 16 right now. Approximately 40 lbs lost and I went from an 18 to a 16… annoying. And yes, I know that’s a size that people are like “ew, plus size,” but I always wear “larger” sizes even at my skinniest. I’m literally big boned. This is me at a size 12:
I know, I want to do me too. If that above is a size 12, I really don’t care if anyone calls a size 12 fat, because I’d be cool looking like that forever. Big bones. Just like Cartman. OWN IT.
I should also add that once a WW leader told me 10 pounds was equal to a size lost. At that point I had lost 20 lbs and one size (16 to 14) and I was like… whatsthatnow? Excuse me? Yeah no. Maybe my body does 20 lbs/ size? Or now, 40 lbs / size? Ridiculous.
Anyway, I tried on some backup dresses (size 16′s) that I had and all of them were a tad big. So if operation: size 14 fails, I will at least be able to get the others nipped/tucked at a tailor.
Not sure there’s a point to this… onwards, I guess? Once I find a darn sports bra I hope to be more active. Where do you big-busted ladies shop for affordable, supportive sports bras?
