I'd been feeling down about the numbers on my scale, so I decided to make myself feel better in another way. I tried on an outfit I wore years ago, and it fits! It's size 18/20. It's a one piece top/shorts outift, but its' knee length. This is a big deal, cause I've been wearing skirts down practically to my ankles for the past few years. It ties in the back, so I show my small (well in proportion to my hips, anyway!) waist. I finally have decent calves after exercising, so I'm going to show them!
I know this probably sounds stupid, but it made me feel better this morning. The scale still has not moved to lose those darn 2.5 pound gained. I'm making a big deal over having moved from 217 to 219.5. 217 was my weight when I got pregnant, and I was so excited to get back there. I went from 217 to 234 with pregnancy, and lost weight after Matthew's birth from postpartum depression. I went down to 206 from all the anxiety. Once I went on medication, I gained fifty pounds! So I'm really trying hard to get under that pregnancy weight!
