Actual SIGNS of weight loss! – I opted not to go for the number I see on the scale, but for the number that my tape measure, measures around my waist/bust and hips.
I started out with these measurements on May 10th (exactly 2wks ago)
Bust 46″ (wearing a 40DDD bra)
And my measurements now:
And while Im glad Im losing inches, Im even more glad Im not losing them so much in the hips – Id like to keep some of that curve (for those of you who dont know, I lack in the BEHIND department!)
I knew something was up – I knew I had lost some weight/inches – when I tried on a dress I had purchased from Etsy, which measurements were mine exactly – and it was a bit big!
I woke up this morning, a bit annoyed because most of my pretty dresses were at the dry cleaner – and the rest…I just wasnt in the mood to wear. I stood in front of my closet wearing a white slip, annoyed. But then I realized I had a black wrap dress, that Ive had for — AGES! — I took it off the hanger and tried it on. Sure, it fit. I could tie it. The arms were fine…but I was afraid to look in the mirror at the bulges that were there. This dress is rayon jersey, and quite form fitting. I was afraid! I went downstairs and looked in the mirror and said – hell, it isnt so bad!
Here is a photo of me wearing the exact same dress, in 2004. I was about 150lbs here, and wearing a size 8/10. Mind you, the dress is marked, “medium”
