Alrighty! Now down to business.
Today I weighed in at 159. I'm officially normal! So, I get these buttons from Scale Junkie's Healthy You Challenge:
Seriously. 65 Pounds, SUCK MY BALLS.
Weight = 159 (-1.4)
Arm = 11.5 (-0)
Bust = 37 (-0)
Ribcage = 32 (-1 finally!)
Waist = 28.5 (-0)
Butt = 39 (-1)
Hips = 38 (-0)
Thigh = 24 (-0)
Overall, a loss of 1.4 pounds and 2 inches. Fair, successful week in my opinion!
So I thought I'd share a few pictures. Here's one of me in an outfit, 'cause you know I'm a clotheshound/shoppingwhore. Headband from Bangles and Bags in Milwaukee, Shirt from a consignment shop (originally from Dress Barn!) - Vest (size 8) from New York and Company. Yellow belt from Boston Store, and matching yellow shoes you can't see are from DSW. :)
Also, size 8 Old Navy Jeans (my goal jeans) are officially my day to day jeans. They fit correctly and such. Time for some new goal jeans, eh? ;)
Speaking of goals... here's one I haven't talked about. This tank-top / corset thing is so gorgeous, and I BARELY fit into it when I was at my thinnest. Dagnabbit I want to wear it. I have a faint memory of wearing it out one time, and then gaining weight before I could wear it again. I tried it on just for kicks, and it very tightly snaps over the bosoms, but ridiculously so... it smooshes them into less existence than they already are. After that, it's definitely not hooking (because it's just too small and my midsection won't squish like my boobs will.) I'm not sure if I'll ever fit into it, but I want to. I probably need to lose another 1-2 inches overall before it'll fit, and probably a little more than that in my mid section. I'm not sure when I bought this or why, or if it really fit me. If so, I must have had a 26 or 25 inch waist at some point.
So! Time to answer a few questions.
Q: I was just wondering if you're including exercise into your diet regimen.
A: Well, not exactly, no. I have a somewhat physical job (photographer) - ((Don't laugh until you've photographed a wedding, seriously.)) And with all the work involved in the studio renovation, I've been sweating a lot lately. But, no. I canceled my gym membership, I don't do the 30 Day Shred anymore, I am a lazy bitch. I really want to get a bike though. And I lay in bed at night thinking about jump roping. But, I never do anything about that.
Q: That egg plant looks sooo good. You think you could bake it? I don't have any kind of grill. :(
A: Yes, you can totally bake eggplant. It works better if you put salt on it, then put it between two paper towels and let it sit for 30 minutes to draw out the moisture. Also, I saw a recipe to dip it in egg after that, then bake it. Mmmm.
I have a few other things to chat with you guys about but I'm going to wait until tomorrow for that. For now, thank you so much for going over to vote for me really quickly!
