So I get random thoughts from time to time... here is my latest.

I'm currently 212 pounds. If I gained 8lbs every month until the end of the year, I'd weigh 300 pounds. If I lose 8lbs a month until the end of the year, I'd weigh 124 pounds.

that's absolutely insane that 8 pounds a month and 11 months in either direction can have such a HUGE impact on my life....

ok, weirdness complete lol

Yep. I think about the numbers all the time! In fact, I can get quite obsessive about it... lying in bed at night thinking, if I keep up this rate of weight loss, then by X date I will be Y lbs... and I haven't been that size since Z date, so all these clothes will fit me etc etc etc... Lack of sleep is bad for weight loss, right? ;)

Sometimes I lay in bed and imagine what it would be like to go dress shopping for my cousin's wedding. Her wedding is May 5 so I will have to go in April. Right now I'm about a size 16. If I could lose enough weight just to get down to a 14, I could probably go to Macy's. I think the regular sizes in Macy's dresses go to 14. Does anyone know?!

Where do you shop for dresses to wear as a guest to a wedding? I don't even know. I've bough a few dresses at the Macy's plus section and I don't want to go back there... ever!

I do the same thing. I make tons of pages full of the rate i'm losing versus the date. I even will allow some gains/stalls to keep it realistic. It makes me so motivated!

Oh oh......I just found out I was weird, too! I prefer to think of this as presenting myself with alternatives. :) I have to admit that realizing that if I keep up at my current pace that I will be under 300 pounds for the first time since.....drum roll because you won't believe this......1990 is definitely a lot more appealing than going over 400.

That dress is gorgeous! And you can find a Macy's coupon to bring the price under $100!

Mozzy, that's not a weird thought. That's a fantastical wonderful thought! On Monday when my in-laws were over- I was discussing my weight-loss journey and how glad I was to start it. What would have happened if I didn't? I would have got pregnant and definitely hit over 300 pounds. I'm so glad I didn't let that happen.

And on the topic of dress shopping- I couldn't find a dress for the last wedding I went to. No shops had plus size formal attire! I was devastated and humiliated in front of my MIL! Never again will I have that problem... Grrr...I'm still angry/sad about it. And how weird it must have been for the plus-size sales lady to tell me they didn't sell plus sizes. It doesn't make any sense. We live in a plus size world. Why can't clothing stores accommodate?

I just did the same thing, only with ten pounds a month. Holy crap, that'd be huge.

And nah, it's not weird. I do it all the...time...yeah.
