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!
