Firsts things first, I want to give a huge big BIRTHDAY SHOUTOUT to Trying Not to Be Fat. She is absolutely amazing and I hope she has a kickass birthday! What’s even better is that her birthday is on a Friday, and my birthday will also be on a Friday this year (see, the similarities between us just keep adding up!). I am so excited for all the changes that are taking place in her life right now and together we are going to become awesome registered dietitians. Just you wait and see! We will take the world by storm and make the world a healthy, beautiful place! Yeehaw!
The exciting news doesn’t stop there people! It keeps getting better. So last night, the husband treated me to a lovely dinner of steak and this really delicious strawberry feta salad which I had no idea was going to be as tasty was it was! I barely ate my steak since I got so full on the salad! It was just so good. I am definitely going to have to make that salad myself some time! I am drooling just thinking about it. Then we decided to do some clothes shopping because I needed some new bras that actually fit and weren’t 6 sizes too big, and he needed shorts that didn’t look like kilts because they were gigantic on his muscular legs. Well he found a really nice top that he wanted me to have (it’s orange and silky… I will try to get a picture of it later). Well the large looked a little too big, so I decided to give a medium a shot… And you guessed it! It fit! I fit into a medium shirt! Totally blew my mind. Even despite the fact my boobs are still fairly large… I am able to comfortably fit into a medium shirt. To boost my self esteem even more, the husband picked out a pair of shorts. Once again, mind = blown. I have dropped two pant sizes! No more 16’s. Here come 12’s.
My husband also had fun shopping. He is almost at the point where he can pull off a medium, and it makes the muscles in his arms and chest really pop! I was almost tempted to be naughty in the dressing room, but I restrained myself (just barely). It was definitely a wonderful ego boost!
Tonight we are having an “official” date night that is going to involve sushi, possibly some bowling, a few drinks and just being together. I am feeling absolutely wonderful about the changes in my body (and attitude). My horseback riding skills have definitely gotten a lot better as well (with my new and improved balancing now that I don’t have so much flab!) and Daisy is looking awesome, even though she doesn’t want to be fit and trim, and would prefer to be lazy and just eat treats.
These victories remind me to always get back up when you have fallen down to end on a good note. Because you will always eventually end on a good note if you keep trying.
