Good things... Thinner things...
Gilly was mentioning her new thin girl mentality when approaching her jeans and clothes. Mine was always the "just out of the dryer" test. I dried NOTHING in the dryer when I was obese, couldn't risk shrinkage. Now, I dry EVERYTHING in the dryer because I need them to not be baggy. My new summer wardrobe is huge now. My weight is the same, but my size L shirts look like dresses, and my new capri's are falling off of my ass. Wah wah wah. I do believe this is the state where people say they are not losing pounds, but are losing inches. I can even make some semblance of a six pack on my abs. My daughter is of course losing weight rapidely, and our tandem goal is to be able to wear the same clothes (if we wanted to). I may need to up my game a little bit. I can do it because I'm basically doing nothing right now.
Oh, and about the crazy talk. I told my current boss about my interview last week. She told me I got the job. They hadn't called her yet, but she was resigned to the fact that any position I applied for, would be offered to me. That made me feel really good, and in turn makes me feel valuable, which in turns makes me feel loyal. My current manager is just that brilliant. I did some due diligence and interviewed a former employee from the prospective job, and got some candid feedback. I have so much flexibility in my current job, and I love the people I work with, and I do see the possibility for advancement... if I'm patient. I'm patient with weight loss, so that won't be a problem. Ha, ha, ha. Now, I'm honestly not sure what they could offer me to make me interested in leaving my current duties.
My band is still tight. I pb at least once per day. I've been making decent food choices. Like today I had a protein bar, activia yogurt, half a whole grain bar, white chili chicken with sour cream (REAL sour cream), crackers and cheese, grilled hamburger patty w/ cheese, rocky road ice cream, and that's it. Maybe 1800 calories, and I stopped counting protein at work because I had hit my daily goal and was just going to add to it. I can eat this way for life. I can keep wearing cute clothes. I can be healthy. I can MOVE if I want to. And, I can also go to sleep before my Ambien kicks in. Always be careful of these after 10pm posts... :)
Oh, Oh, Oh... I need to update you in my next post that it looks like I'm going to be a grandmother again very soon. Wild story, but ours tend to be that way. I'm excited to explain it all to you.
Good night my sweet bandsters...
