The Swimsuit Challenge Showdown

So yesterday I stepped on the scale...a little groggy. I had weighed in at 191 on Friday. I was hoping to see 190. What I saw was some number that was xx9. At first I thought it was reading 199 and that I had gained 8 pounds overnight. Not rational, but still a thought.


So I wiped my eyes and saw this little beauty.




I stepped off in fear and didnt proceed to do the scale boogie. You know. Where you step on and off like 5 times to see if it is real.
I was hoping today would show the same number so I could send it to Kristen for the challenge. And it did! Tomorrow is MY official weigh in day, so I hope it holds so I can record it and change my little ticker :)



Something else happened yesterday. You all know that I had my goal shorts. But I haven't told you about my goal sweatpants. (I don't mean something I would wear when I hit my goal weight, but something that I had decided that would be goal clothing piece). Anyways, that's right. I said goal SWEATPANTS!

They are from Victoria's Secret. And yes, I realize I am 30 and perhaps I am too old for such things...but I have coveted these. My brothers girlfriend wears them when we are hanging at the boat. Skinny girls wear them. They are in the PINK collection and only go up to a size large. I would was in Vickies and touch them. Sigh. And move on. Last night Tracey said "Just go try them on! What are you afraid of?"

So I did it. I grabbed them and took them to the dressing room.

And they fit! THEY FIT! A vintage slim cut sweat, in blue, with love pink down one leg...FIT! Tracey bought them for me! I love them so much that when I took them off last night I gave them a kiss and said "i love you". I promise to take a picture. It's mind boggling.

We went to the beach today. Below is a shot of me thinking, "Amy...if you are going to be a Sports Illustrator Swimsuit Model, you must pretend the water is not 68 degrees."
And this last picture. Well...hmmm...I don't know whose body this is. But I kinda likes it.

Lastly, next weekend we are going to see my parents new houseboat. They have lived on a boat since they sold our house probably 9 years ago. They had a houseboat for years and traded it for a cruiser so they could come down the intercoastal and go into the Gulf. Now, they traded back to a houseboat (thank God) and we are SO excited to see it!

BUT...you know that when I go up there I get a little off track, shall we say, with my eating. I have already told my mom NO chocolate chip cookies...but the problem is...I become a sneaky child and hunt out my dads stash of oreos. I get naughty. So I don't know how this will turn out come next weigh in day. I am going to try my best though and stay on track!

Because Gilly is always lurking...waiting to take me out....

hahahah

  3. Nope, def not too old for cute sweatpants! I love Victoria's Secret sweats/hoodies. It may sound silly but in addition to a fab dress, my other "goal" outfits I couldn't wait to rock were leggings/lounge pants/hoodies!

    PS looking fab @ the beach!

  13. Amy you sassy little minx you!

  14. What a difference the direction that stretch marks run makes! Yours are vertical, so your tummy is flattening out. Mine are horizontal, so the upper pouch is still puffing out. We'll see what it looks like in another 40 pounds when I'm your weight.

    Have fun with your family next weekend. That's more important than worrying what goes in your mouth. Make good choices 2 of 3 meals, and allow yourself one snack a day. Sounds good, huh? lol

  29. OMG Amy! My first thought about seeing you in the water was....man she is brave to be in the freezing water...not to mention the jellyfish that were out there! We went to Navarre Beach both days and is was beautiful.. Yesterday, John decided he was going in the water and started backing up and actually fell down! He said he saw a jellyfish right where he was headed. Lovely weekend though. You look amazing!
