Just a couple of things I have been meaning to chat about:
Dressing Room Shenanigans
Have any of you discovered that as some point in your weight loss journey you become shopping challenged? I have realized that I don't know what size I am.
Here's what I mean.
The other day while shopping, I found myself in the dressing room with pants in a size 12 and size 10, and shirts ranging from XL to Medium. I just look at clothes now and have no idea what I really fit into. I often find myself overestimating how much material it takes to cover my body. Sometimes I put clothes on that are so big it's ridiculous.
I know this is not a "bad" problem to have, but it does kind of mess with your brain. I tried on, and bought, several pairs of 12's . And once I put them on a few days later, I realized perhaps I should have actually tried on and possibly bought 10's. But the mental block is still there. A size 10 sounds just as ridiculous to me now as it did when I was a size 26.
Our BOOBS planners
I have the privilege of watching the behind the scenes planning take place for the BOOBS showdown in Chicago. I don't do anything productive or useful, but I did want to let you guys know how hard some of our favorite ladies are working to make our trip to Chicago beyond what any of us could have even imagined.
I remember when we first started tossing around the idea of meeting up somewhere. We were all just going to meet at a hotel. Now, we are having a CONVENTION! There are goodies, fine food, wine, events...
It is absolutely amazing. I am beyond impressed at how smart, organized, and uber talented this planning committee is. I can't wait for everyone to see the fruits of the labor.
A Beverage Revolution
Yesterday at work, my coworker and I stumbled upon a new drink. Well. I made it up. I had some sprite zero, she had some cherry limeade crystal light. I poured them both into a glass of ice and WAAAAHHH LAH! Fizzy yummy drink.
Bottoms up I say.
