We are at week 8!

I have lost 20 pounds! That was a couple of weeks ago when I was last able to jump on a scale (thanks Target for keeping your scales in a private area so I could check without other shoppers checking me out). I am still wearing my size smaller and the clothes are fitting me perfectly. I went shopping early last week to get a few things to wear when I went to see my husband. I discovered that when he was packing our things, he gave our elliptical machine to our neighbors. That did not make me happy but on the other hand it’s okay because I know they will put it to good use and now I can get a treadmill!

I just got back last night from Rhode Island where my husband was attending his school, graduation was last Friday. We did a lot of walking around and I tried to continue to eat well. We did do as much walking as I wish we did – it was mostly while we walked around town vs going for a walk once we got back to where we were staying.

I’m excited to keep this up! My next goal is to lose 15 pounds.

I found out just a couple of hours ago that I have lost a pants size!

This has not totally sunk into my brain just yet. I ran to Target real quick with my brother and the kids (his and mine) with the intent of buying a couple of tv shows on dvd and looking for sandals for Alice. Of course they had nothing I went for and we walked out with flip flops, not sandals. I’m not that thrilled because we are around all boys – she and I are the only girls since my brother has all boys – and they are outside all the time. You can’t really play all day in flip flops. I’m sure they will be a wear when we go somewhere or when we are in the house kind of shoes.

Anyway, I grabbed a pair of pants to try on – a size smaller then I’ve been wearing – and tried them on real quick. And they fit. So thrilling!

I still haven’t been able to work out at the gym but I am going to start walking around more. My Dad has a large yard and I could go walking around that – the kids are still playing the walking game we came up with a few weeks ago and I’m sure they’d be happy to have a new one.

I’m not sure how much weight I’ve lost as I haven’t been on a scale in a couple of weeks. I finally remembered how much I weighed when we left the south and since we have left in the middle December I’ve lost 17 pounds, as of that couple of weeks ago. I’m sure I lost a few more pounds since then and I look forward to going to the gym in a few days to verify that!

Mommyfest has started! I’m excited about this event being put on by Marie Ynami. This is the fifth year for her event and she is running several contests. First up we have a five things about this mom meme!

* I will be 30 in a month (from today!).
* In the next two years I will move at least twice, maybe three times.
* I’ve lost almost 20 pounds in the past four months.
* I hate birth control pills because of the hormones.
* I love shopping – even though most of the time it is window shopping.
