Some Milestones… 3

Totes (yup, I said it) wearing boots today. In case that’s not a big deal for you, it is for me. This means my calves are under 16″ and I’m ABLE to wear boots. Also, it took me more than 10 minutes to get dressed this morning, which startled my husband ┬áinto thinking I might turn into some high-maintenance wife. He even said, “Is this how it’s going to be from now on?” No. Not going to happen. I love my five-minute showers and messy buns far too much.

I also hit a HUGE milestone this morning when I weighed in. Approximately 9 months ago (when I was pregnant with Noah), I weighed 264 lbs. Only about 11 of that came off after giving birth to my dear boy. Today I weigh 214 lbs. That’s fifty-freaking-pounds, ladies and gentlemen.

I can’t keep my pants on, which seems like a problem for other reasons, but for me it’s because they are a bit too loose. I am not quite at a size 16 but 18s are just falling off. The only thing keeping me out of 16s is my belly skin. Thanks babies. I have a feeling once I’m able to start working out and can tone up my midsection I’ll be dropping sizes super quick.

Another odd milestone–today at church I was SOCIAL. It was weird. I know I usually talk say hello to people, but today I guess I just felt a bit more confident and chatted with a great number of people. I went above and beyond saying hello. I touched, hugged, and asked them about their families. This is something that I used to do. I used to love people and I could make friends easily. I guess it’s something I lost over the years, but I’m back, people! I felt confident enough in my self and what I was wearing to even compliment them on what they were wearing. I know this sounds weird, but you know when you say, “Oh, I love that outfit!” people are immediately going to look at what you are wearing.

Other big things are coming down the pipeline and I can’t wait to share them with you. I hope your weekend was fantastic, I’m looking forward to my weigh-in tomorrow!

    I have never, ever, EVER been able to wear boots, even when I was at my slimmest. I don’t have calves, I have COWS. Congratulations to you!
