Some thoughts

I'm really amazed that I can get into a size ten at this weight. I know it has a lot to do with working out and lifting weights. The last time I wore a size ten, I know I was 20-25 pounds LIGHTER. So I may be happy at 170. I think I'd like to have my low of the month be 165, then when I'm pmsing and such, it's OK to bump up to 170. :-)

The other day I got myself a new pair of chaps to wear on the motorcycle. My other pair are 2Xs and fall right off with everything pulled as tight as possible. I'll have to get a pic of me wearing them. Hubby LOVED the look! Or is that another L word? ;-) The new pair are 12s. I expected to wear a little bigger size in the tight leather. And there's plenty of belt holes and I can also pull them tighter in the back with extra grommets. So I should be able to wear these even if I get a little smaller.

Got back on the treadmill yesterday for 30 minutes. Kept it kind of slow, max of 3mph and my heart rate was up to 165 so I figured I shouldn't push it.

OK, speaking of sizes, I have a few swimsuits I can no longer wear. One is a 1X.16W, black with white trim skirted one piece. The other is a size 22W one piece with a skirt, black with tiny white polka dots. Neither has underwire in the bra. Also have a size 14 tank one piece, (no skirt) blues with gold stripes running through it horizontally. They are free for the taking if you send me a couple bucks for shipping. (USA only, please) We're going out of town for the weekend, so email me and I'll get back to you Sunday night or Monday.

Oh yes, we must see the chaps picture! :) Although I suspect it will have me drowning in envy--you look so great!

I will admit to having the same thoughts at the 170 mark. I even entertained a conspiracy theory that the clothing makers had simply re-sized everything down a couple of sizes. Then I realized I didn't care if they had; if I really was a 12 or 14, that was great too! :)

AWESOME! Hey, if you feel good and clothes fit, don't even worry about the number. It is not that important.

Great payoff for all your hard work.

I need to say thank you so much for the award...how do I put it on my blog...and do I pass it to others.

Not sure of the rules, this is my first award!
