185

good lord did i spend a lot of money. it was fantastic. and now i get to decide what goes back. i bought a blanket, a tea pot, one coat, one scarf, three pairs of pants, three purses and three pairs of shoes. some of these things were gifts and some things were "gee, it's on clearance and there's only one and i'll just take it back if i don't want it". so there's alot going back. including a really cheap old navy coat in xxl which is really way too big and a pair of size 16 pants from the gap. i'm glad to be back in the 14's and i'm hoping i won't be buying anything else in that size this summer.

i found a long denim skirt in my closet from express in a 13/14. i was a little worried...but it fits. i wore it to the boyfriend's mother's birthday dinner. i think i shocked his family with the dressing up. they're not that kind of people and mostly i'm not either. it was nice to feel pretty and go out.

on the dieting front i'm getting somewhere with portion control. we had dinner at buggaboo creek and i could hardly eat half of it. his mom was worried i didn't like it because i took so much home. i'm glad to see the lasting changes. maybe relieved is a better word. i need these habits to be life long, second nature. it's awesome.

thanks, i needed someone to tell me it was ok. the boyfriend just says "whatever makes you happy" which is great but also non-commital. but then he knows better than to deny me shoes.

Just discovered your site thanks to Hilly at Snackiepoo, and discovered two coincidences: I, too, weigh 185 right now and am struggling with it, and, perhaps most significantly, I'm a native Mainah! Anyhow, I'll check out your site more and add it to my blogroll.
