I am in a pretty good mood today. My little girl is finally getting better (again), I don't have anywhere to be today, and I am enjoying a relaxing day at home doing a bunch of laundry and vegging out a bit.
I got up this morning and had basically nothing to wear. I mentioned this before; I have a lot of clothes that fit but are uncomfortably snug, so I don't wear them. I have one pair of jeans that fit, a few shirts and sweaters, and the rest are not loose enough for me to feel good in. Today I looked in the mirror and said, this is ridiculous. I cannot believe how huge a difference 20 pounds makes in how I look and feel. It is night and day. It is the difference between looking and feeling "normal" and looking and feeling obese. I was so confident even at 180.
Right now everything is in the laundry and I am wearing clothes that I would not be caught dead in outside the house. They show every lump and bump. I can't wait to get into something else as soon as the dryer stops. At 180 pounds, I really didn't have a lot of lumps or bumps. Amazing.
Well, the good news is I am still working at it, staying on plan and feeling better. I will get there. And that makes me feel better.
On the menu for today: probably some kind of soup or stew. It's cold outside!
Might blog again later. Going to enjoy some hot cocoa now!
