Finally a loss~

Well my weigh in was last night and I lost 2.2 pds. I am so happy. Yesterday the weather was so perfect. I walked for a total of 3 hours.

I came home from work, put on so comfy clothes, a big floppy purse and set out. I walked for like two hours-I did stop into a store to get Cole's valentines present but mostly walked. It felt so good. Later I walked for an hour to my meeting. I am so loving having a clear sidewalk for a change. I knew I would miss outdoor walking but I really didn't know that it would be to this extent.

I decided to finally stay to a meeting and they had a substitute leader there so I still don't really know if I will like the meetings on Thursdays or not. Oh swells~

Today I woke up @ 2am with bad p pains and a little nausea so I called in sick to work. It is a huge bummer because Cole is there now and when I called to tell him he said ah that sucks I did up your desk for valentines day-he is so romantic I so wish I had felt good today-would have been nice to have my roses & chocolates at work-haha.

Yesterday I did two things to try and get me out of my comfort zone with regards to my last post. One being only really eating while sitting and therefore sometimes going too late between meals, snacks and another is dressing down in public.

Years ago when I was of an healthy weight I used to love wearing comfy clothing and just going places, seeing where the day took me sort of thing but I haven't done that in forever. Its one of those things you don't even really remember missing until you do it again.

You see if there is ever any chance I'm going to run into a store I will have jeans or dress pants on, be showered ( well I'm not really giving this one up, haha), maybe have on jewellery, you know the deal. I guess I once I gained my weight I didn't really want people to mistake me for a slobby fat person.

So yesterday I put on my yoga pants, a big comfy sweatshirt, my sneakers and a big floppy purse and I set out where the day took me. I mostly walked but I did stop into the bank and a couple of stores and you know what? It felt amazing. I think I will be making a habit of this. And on the way home I had a snack while walking-look at me I'm growing as a person-hopefully shrinking my waist too.


  1. You are growing - in the right ways. Congrats on the loss and the long walk!

  2. Yeah! I knew you'd drop! Bummer about Valentine's. I am sure you'll figure out something great at home!

  3. I am 43 and I have grown as a person over the last year - added bonus huh? :-) BTW, thank you for the SWEET comment on my post yesterday. Love you too Miss Candace!

  4. Sometimes it's nice to just have one of those relaxing and comfy days. Today is one of those days for me- i pulled a hoody from my closet to keep me warm! Congrats on the loss.

  5. Dang girl a 3 hour walk! Wow- you deserve that great loss! Keep it up lady :)

  6. Thanks so much everyone-means a lot to me~

  7. How neat, how fun! I wish I could do that! There's nowhere around here where I could just walk for hours, especially with the baby (unless we walked circles at the park). You should take pictures the next time you go out and do this! Great loss, too. You are kicking butt!
