In case you were unable to figure it out from the title of this post – I lost weight this week which means I have lost weight every week since starting Weight Watchers back in May. This makes me happy because I firmly believe the slower you lose it the more likely it will stay off.
And this weight? It’s coming off sloooowly which is good because I’m nursing, we don’t want it to come off too quickly. (and it also means I can eat Bratwurst and s’mores with Reese’s peanut butter cups and drink beer, too.) (If I wanted to.) (Not that I did that.) (A lot, this past weekend.)
Brian and I celebrated our 15 year dating anniversary yesterday. FIFTEEN. YEARS. A lot has changed since then, mainly my waistline but also the way we celebrate things. Simple things make us happy.
Last night we dropped the kids off at Bible school. We fed them dinner beforehand which meant Brian and I still needed to eat. We considered going out to eat to celebrate (with Eli, of course.) but I was wearing sweat capris and a tank top, I did not want to change clothes because it took me an hour to pick out the stunner I had on – which was not appropriate for dining out. I really like Taco Bell, Brian does not. I asked in my cute voice, which was much cuter to Brian fifteen years ago, I’m sure, “can we please get Taco Bell.”
He smiled at me. ”Of course, anything for you on our anniversary.” So, we pulled through the drive-thru, came home, I ate on the couch, he at his desk and it was SO AWESOME.
Before you judge, know this: we eat at the table every night, so this was a wonderful break, A TREAT.
We celebrate 11 years of marriage next month, maybe we’ll live it up and I’ll put real clothes on. And maybe not. Either way is fine with me.
But if we did go out to celebrate, I’d wear something simple, like this. (I lost 1.2 pounds this week, by the way.)
