I FINALLY leave for Chicago tomorrow morning!  I can't wait!

Today was a good day for a variety of reasons.  I got my highlights touched up and my hair trimmed, went to lunch and had minestrone soup along with a million diet cokes, went shopping and bought (black velvet pants, black tights, awesome jewelry, and some red 5 inch heels courtesy of Jessica Simpson), and I fit into my jeans that I bought in high school...glorious.  It's weird that I'm just now realizing that I've lost a lot of weight, and I think never stepping on the scale has helped tremendously.  I only ate about 600 calories today at the most, but I haven't been keeping an exact count lately.  I think I just kind of judge things on quantity and mentally go through what I'm having in my head, and it stops me from constantly thinking about it and making me binge.  I don't know.  It's just strange seeing myself in the mirror sometimes and realizing that I'm finally shrinking.  Sure, I'm a size 6 and would like to be a 0, but at least it's progress!  But I do know that my relatives are going to make comments about my size but whatever.  I technically only went down one size, but it looks like more because I have certain assets that refuse to shrink...aka my ass.  So while my legs get smaller, my butt decides to stay exactly where it is.  I guess it makes me look more proportionate, though, but it makes me self conscious when I have a little bubbly creature following me everywhere.

Anyway, I will be sure to write more tomorrow, but I'm saying this on the assumption that I'll have wireless internet access...not guaranteed.  So if I don't write anything for a few days, then let's hope that I'm properly not eating, losing weight, and having a grand ole time.  K?

And Happy Thanksgiving! :)


  1. I love that feeling when you lose weight without trying, which is what you have seemed to stumble upon. I feel like when I'm really focusing on what calories I have and seriously count, then that just doesn't work. oh serendipity.

    Cute blog, and a thumbs up on the velvet pants. I think I'm going to try and bring leather back. Following you!
