Tight and Right baby

Just a quick update: I lost .8 today! WOOOOT!!!!

I officially weigh 142.4.  I. am. so. happy.  Like, unbelievably happy. I passed the 143 mark and am on my way down down down!  I have been thinking a lot about this number today because it was the number I saw the first time I weighed myself when I got to CA (we didn't have a scale so I had to weigh at a gym, once I started going to one again...).  I had gained 7 pounds and thought I was so fat.  Now I feel slim!  I'm starting to feel confidence again in my body and the way I look and feel.  Seriously, nothing feels as good as feeling confident, feminine, and sexy in your body.  Nothing.

I went dancing tonight with a huge group of my friends and it was so fun.  One of the best parts of the night was looking over my shoulder to the mirror behind me and not being disgusted.  I had on cute little skinny jeans and a gray v-neck t shirt with a black vest over it, and I was so cute!  My roommate and I told a bunch of our friends to meet us there, but we just went to dance; we didn't really care if anyone else showed up.  Turns out about 20 of our good friends showed up and we ended up dominating the dance floor.  Don't worry that's it's just another 1.5 hours of cardio that I can tack on to my 1 hour that I've already done today.  I was sweating up a storm tonight and it felt GREAT.  I love cardio.  LOVE dancing even more.   It seriously is one of the best ways to just let go and feel your body...

Well folks, I mean to write a good post soon, I promise.  But given that it's 1:33 AM and I have church at 9 am...and i'm already short on sleep as it is, I think I'm going to call it a night for now and write more later.  Loves!!!



  1. :D So, happy for you! :D Deb

  2. Good post? whatchutalkinbout? All your posts are awesome gf. I'm glad you had fun tonight dancin' so jealous. I can't believe you have 20 friends to show up when you call them, you don't know how lucky you are. Sounds like you're loving and enjoying life. Good for you sis!
    Isn't it funny how we appreciate our bodies so much more when we're on the way down.. lol I remember when I first weighed 180 like 10 years ago and thinking omg my life is over and then on the weigh down its like woohoo 180!! I'm a skinny bitch.. haha.

  3. D! You skinny little thing you! You are right, there is NO FEELING LIKE IT! I am so happy for you that you are experiencing this joy! I'm so jealous that your scale # is getting smaller and smaller while mine continues to get bigger and bigger. HAHA! OK, I've only gained 3 lbs but I've been too sick to work out so I haven't in almost 3 WEEKS! YIKES! So I am wondering how much fat I've gained. It'll all be worth it and in 7 months, I can look to you for inspiration to get back into my skinny jeans! Until then I will just watch my belly (and plenty of other body parts) continue to grow! I love you! I miss you! I truly am so happy for you, D! I really am! Keep it up girl!

  4. Hooray for your loss!
    I'm so glad you are feeling happy and confidant with look awesome!
