I lost weight again this week, 1.6 pounds, I had a sudden refocus these past few days, which is good because I’m realizing just how gigantic my belly is. Has that ever happened to you? You think you look okay and then you actually see that you are much larger than you thought you were. Not that I don’t think I look okay, it’s just that I thought I was a teeny bit smaller in the middle region. but ah…NO.
I went shopping last Tuesday night. At Old Navy. I went to try on a pair of size 12 capris, they were SO CUTE. I put my foot through the right leg and my leg got stuck at the calf. I’m not kidding. I don’t know what kind of size twelve toothpick-legged person could wear these but OH MY GOD this was not good for my mental status. (this after shopping for running shoes, every pair was ugly and then realizing that OHCRAP, this is what it’s like to be old. Seriously, why are shoes so damn ugly?)
(fortunately I found a pair at Zappos, which is the greatest shoe store EVER.) So, I’ve been living in yoga pants, in grey and black. I wear maternity tank tops nearly everyday. I get pretty flustered getting dressed everyday, so I think that’s why I have this resurgence of motivation to do something about it.
I think I’ve lost about 9 pounds since May 19th, which is good, however, the last time I did Weight Watchers I lost 8 pounds in the first week. FOCUS, BETH, FOCUS.
Here’s my inspiration outfit this week, this is what I would be wearing everyday, to say, Target, if I could find a normal pair of capris that didn’t cause my stomach to ooze out over the zipper. For the record, that’s a headband, not a necklace. And if I could have found a ponytail holder, I would have added that to the collection.
It’s cute, right?
