Good morning everyone. It's Wednesday, my least favorite IP day. I'm tired from running around all week, but the weekend is still far. It's also the day before my weigh in. I like weigh in days on IP, but I am usually almost our of food! So I open my cupboard with all my IP food, and there's not much there! I love the first Thursdays, when I have a great weigh in, get to pick all my food for the week, try something new. Wednesdays, not so much! I sometimes buy a couple extra packets, and obviously need to do that this week, to giveme more variety by the end of the week.

Or maybe I need to change my weigh in day! Every week!

Have a great Wednesday everyone!

Happy Wednesday!!

Weigh-in tomorrow! I'm feeling good about this one. My new $5 jeans that I got about a month ago are now falling at the hips and saggy in the bum... But over the weekend my sister moved in with my husband and I and she let me go through her closet. Got myself a nice pair of size 12 dress pants!! I said no way they would fit but my sister just said to try them! Going to be showing those off at work this afternoon for sure!!!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good morning!

I'm with you 1littlestar - Wednesday is usually a bear. BUT the weekend is around the corner so hang tough!

Don't smaller sizes make you feel great Susie? My sister cleaned out her closet the other day - mostly 10s and 12s which I am not wearing yet. But they are sure inspirational! I haven't had small clothes in my closet (ok, they're in a box in my closet) in a long time. Looking forward to being able to actually wear them!

It is a great feeling. I have so many nice summer clothes that I was too big for this summer and I'm pretty sure that they will be too big for me next summer, but I am going to hang on to them for now as my mom is losing weight as well. She loves that every time I visit her I bring a bag of clothes. And now it is great for me that I can raid my sisters closet (she has everything from 14s-9s) to get me through for a while without buying something to wear for a short time.

Hi Everyone!

Just checking in- it's been busy around here recently. Well, after several weeks of holding steady, I lost 6.8 pounds this week- I am in shock! I knew that the inches were coming off, but that is my biggest loss since week one. Wahoo!

On a related note, I am down a couple of sizes and I don't have much in the size I am in. I am only 1-2 sizes away from my regular size, so I don't want to buy much, but I can't wear stuff that doesn't look professional for work. I tried the goodwill in town, but I've only found shirts not pants or skirts that would work (it's small and always seems very picked over). We don't have a good consignment place. ( I did however just buy a red j.crew miniskirt to wear with tights! I haven't worn a miniskirt since before I was pregnant!)

Anyone have any ideas for how to find a few things kind of cheaply? Had any luck on ebay? I'm worried about not trying it on first?

I don't have time to drive the 3 hours to the next bigger city....

Well done, Eguarantee! You look fantastic. I love it when people share their photos. Someday I'll get the courage to post mine, I hope - it took me 5 months just to feel comfortable enough to add an avatar!

I'm a big fan of eBay for transitional clothes. It's usually cheap and I've never had a bad experience.

Talking Good Wednesday Morning

Good Morning my lovely IPers.

Today is better. I feel so good today. This is the last time I will talk abt my parents BUT yesterday I talked to my dad who sounded like he had the weight of the world lifted off his shoulders, he was upbeat and cheery. They are getting a modular home and they will start digging the basement in a few weeks. He will settle with insurance by Friday. They will have NO MORTGAGE, no loans NADA there is a silver lining in all of this.

Anywho today is my bday. DH has not said happy bday to me yet. So lets see what he does. Also I need a winter coat,but I hate to spend $$$$ on one when I am shrinking (I hope). I did pick out 2 new coach purses and wallets that I want too

OH! I found a a 0/0/0 caramel syrup at the dollar store that DOES NOT tast fakey-artificial and gross. it tastes like caramel is a IP friendly OMG it is so good. it is called café al fresco

anywho happy HUMPDAY!
