The Measure of a Woman
I figured it would be a good idea to track my measurements as well as weight because we all know that the scale doesn't tell the whole story.
So this morning I grabbed Bambi's measuring tape from her sewing kit and bit the bullet. As of today, having already lost 4 pounds, my measurements are:
Dress Size: 10/12
*gulp* I knew my bust size having been "professionally" measured for a bra recently but I did not realize my hips & waist were so large; I'm larger in the waist than Beren! (I do not intend to share that little detail with him, ok?) I was surprised that my thighs weren't bigger, not that 24" is tiny (that's what my waist used to be!), but from the way they feel when they rub together I expected an even higher number!
So, there you go. Not pleased but it can only get better from here, and knowledge is power, right?
In other news, I was having a particularly blue day yesterday, emotions all over the map, sad & weepy. I met my Dad and Kali at a sports bar to discuss our upcoming weekend (more about that later), had a glass of wine but did not order any food. I had already eaten something before I left so I wasn't really hungry and, honestly, my Dad's chicken wings did nothing for me. Huh. I wasn't even tempted to order their peel & eat shrimp which were on special, nor the buffalo shrimp that Kali had. Interesting. One would think that, being the emotional eater than I am, I'd dive into some deep fried comfort food, yet I didn't. One small Non-Scale-Victory for me!
Off to work then plan on a bike ride tonight, let's see if I can get those thigh measurements a bit lower!
Have a Beauty-Full Day,
