It is Friday! And I am a proud owner of a Wii. I cant afford anything extra to go with it just yet, but at least we have the foundation of our future Wii empire. Now I would like lots of comments telling me the difference between Wii Fit and Wii Active, etc. What is a waste of money, what is worth it.
Couple good old fashioned NonScale Victories today. First, I went to Target and bought some bracelets. It is so amazing to be able to just buy standard issue bracelets! They actually fit. Of course there are still some out there that are made for the wrist of an embryo, but the majority fit! Here are three wood ones I purchased today. Remember, I have a life goal of becoming the crazy lady who wears lots of bangles on one wrist...you know...the kind you can hear coming down the hall? The kind that wears bracelets you would never think of putting together. My life goal.
Also, we have a staff member here who had gastric bypass a week before I had lapband. To date, she has lost about 150 pounds. Bringing her to 155. She came in the other day to talk to my coworker. My coworker told me today that Danielle said, "I am so jealous of Amy. She is smaller than me". hahahah Clearly she has a real case of body dysmorphic disorder, bc I weigh almost 80 pounds more than her. But still, I will take the compliment. We just carry our weight differently. She has chicken legs and a very big middle. My big is spread evenly.
My sunkist obsession. So many of you have offered possible alternatives to Satan's nectar. It's just not the same. I have discovered that diet sprite or diet sierra mist is okay...if I am looking for that nice tingle that pop (soda) gives. But you see, Sunkist is an experience. There is no substitute. And honestly, I don't need to give it up forever and ever. I just to have it be the exception, not the rule. I will let you know when I figure out how to make that happen!
Do you guys know what is really hard? Grasping that I am getting smaller. For example. I went into Old Navy and picked up some pajama pants, size XXL. When I tried them on and literally laughed out loud! They were so big on me! When I went to pick out a cardigan, I thought *sigh*, "I will try on an XL (instead of an XXL) just for fun". And it fit! It is just so unbelievable to fathom that I am very close to being able to walk into a store and find my size. I wonder when I will get used to that.
