Well, I spent much of the weekend simply enjoying the fact that I actually kind of feel good about myself. It’s been a really, really long time since that happened. I treated myself to my haircut on Friday, and a new pair of fuzzy Ugg boots to wear with skinny jeans. Or as I used to call them, “not so skinny jeans.”
They’re skinny in fit, but they’re still a size 20. But I have to keep remembering that these are jeans I tried on in August and I couldn’t get them past my knees. My dress pants that were embarrassingly tight at the end of the school year now need a belt. But they’re still an 18. I’m still 9 pounds ABOVE my last “I will never see this weight again” weight.
But I’m making progress! Saturday, I didn’t eat popcorn at the movies, and I drank some water while my husband and his mom had corned beef. My mom and stepdad stopped by today to meet our kitten, and I got to talk to my sister in Paris.
I’m still craving ridiculous things, but really nothing new. Salmon sashimi still tops the list. As does chili and a burger.
It was a good weekend, and I’m ready to face this week head-on!
