"Stress bodes well for me I guess."

So my day went pretty well. I didn't plan on eating lunch but I sort of had lunch at like 3:30. Usually I make salads with just lettuce and veggies. No croutons, cheese or dressing. Today I had lettuce, tomato, croutons, parmesan and like half a tablespoon of ranch. (I did not finish my oatmeal this morning). The salad was delicious though. Then I didn't eat again until I had some popcorn at 8:30 and then a 90 calorie fiber one brownie and then I had a Luna bar. Way too many calories! I have no idea what the scale will tell me tomorrow. We will just have to wait and see. I am guessing I had about 600 calories. Maybe 700?

So the title of my post... My mom came over tonight just to vent and chat a little. I am sort of her best friend and so she usually talks to me to vent about whatever is on her mind. I am a pretty good listener. Anyways... I had to make sure I changed my clothes into more baggy and less revealing. I wore my little black shorts with a grey tank top under an adorable grey and white stripey sweater with black flats and this gorgeous flower necklace that was my great grandmother's from the 20s or 30s. SoI had to change into baggier clothes so she wouldn't notice the weight loss. I put on some baggy pajama pants and a t-shirt. After a while she goes: "You just look so well." And I replied... "Well, I guess stress bodes well for me. :-)" My face has gotten a lot thiner so that now you can notice my cheek bones better. It made me feel good without worrying that she thinks I have lost "too much" weight. I don't know if I have mentioned that I am crazy busy lately. I wake up at 6am and then I don't stop going until about now... 10 or 11 at night. I am starting to wonder how I do it? I am going to tell my boss I have to cut my hours back again. School is more important and my husband makes money for us so my job isn't really necessary. Plus I hardly eat anymore. haha :-P

Sorry for the rambling... sometimes I just have to. 
Things I have noticed with losing 13.4 pounds:
My face is thinner
I really have to squeeze to make all of my thighs touch
My ribs are visible most everywhere
I can almost make out the two bones in my forearm
My rings slide around on my fingers more
NONE of my jeans fit right anymore. (I tried on a pair of what used to be tight size 27 jeans, from forever 21, and they just look weird on me, i think that is a size 4 US?)
My belt is on the last hole.

I need new clothes. 
I never thought I would get here again. I really missed it. 


  1. Yay new clothes!! Size conversions always confuse me and most of the time they seem a bit off... IDK. Belt on the last hole feels good, doesn't it? I could use smaller clothes too, but it's going to be hard to find them, and I'd rather conceal the loss so I'm gonna wait a bit.

  2. That's wonderful!! i love that feeling of needing new clothes not because there to tight but because there to big :)


Leave me some lovely comments :-)
