Yesterday was our family pool party. It was amazing, and I’ve never felt more like the center of attention. My lovely mom was especially friendly to me, especially since she told me that I looked so skinny, and that my skin was so loose. She then dragged me around each and every person to feel my loose skin, to reassure me that it was great and I was doing amazing. Thanks mom!
Another accomplishment, was that I fit into my younger cousins shorts! At first Marla tried to offer me Juanita-Lauritas shorts, which were maybe about ten sizes too small, but then she let me wear hers, and that felt like the biggest accomplishment of all! Ok, before we go all crazy, it wasn’t some fancy jean short type thing with buttons or zippers, yes they were stretchy, and stretchy is my best friend. Ronnie Ginger gave me this face after I came downstairs wearing short shorts, and without giving her usual face, she just said five words that I’ll never forget, that keep sticking with me: “How good does that feel?”. IT FEELS AMAZING! I FEEL AMAZING!
Anyway, today I feel good and slim, and like I can accomplish anything; except run a marathon because I’m really not ready for that just yet.
Now that Hefty Helga has
sadly passed on, there is officially nothing in my way stopping me from losing weight. The scale has been at the same place for the last three weeks, and then finally yesterday, when I got on the scale before my scheduled date, it had finally moved down two pounds. I’ll take it, and it’s better than going up two pounds.
I figure that summer is a great time for me to really put my mind to this weight loss again, and actually stick to it. I mean, not only because I’ll be tan, and we all know dark is slimming, but because I’ll have a lot more time to sit outside to tan, than to sit inside and eat snacks all day. Speaking of snacks, snacks are killer. I could just eat snacks all day. Snacks are delicious. Even the word snack sounds delicious, snack, snack snack. I sound hungry, but really I’m full. I just wish sometimes I could occupy myself with other thoughts instead of wondering when my next snack will be.
I haven’t been in a bathing suit since I was at my fattest last year. Well, I just lied. I was in a bathing suit last night. Around my apartment. Alone. Dancing to some Island beats. Just strutting by myself, seeing how I liked it. Genius didn’t seem to think I looked that bad, because he just stared at me panting, and didn’t even bark at the sight of me in swimwear. It didn’t look that great, however looked better than last year. I wasn’t popping out of all the seams and not going to lie, I actually felt pretty damn good. (Would have looked better with a tan though)
Anyway, dark is slimming, better get back out there in the sun.
