Giving to the sisterhood

Today I am washing clothes that are to be sent to Amy and Kristen (the next time we meet).

It's crazy that I have clothes size 8-18 in my closet. I mean I understand the 8 you always keep your smaller clothes in hopes of fitting back in them. But the bigger clothes? I had started a bag of "future Maternity clothes" am I crazy do you think a hopefully size 10 pregnant woman would wear size 16 or 18 pants? um no. 

It just struck me that I am holding on to these clothes, because in the past I have lost and gained it back (and then some). Holding onto the clothes because I will need them later. 
I feel that this is therapy, THIS time it WILL be different.

saying good bye to my old scale

I purchased a new scale that Kristen recommended. Weight Watchers Glass Memory Electronic Scale. Even shows you how much you are down from start weight. 

The new scale is spot on with the DR's scale so I know it is more accurate. It weighed me in at 182.1 this morning.

But I am sad to say goodbye to my old scale that had me weighing in at 180 this morning. I am sure I don't want to say goodbye because it is a lower weight. (DUH lol) 
BUT this scale saw me at 243lbs (that weight that was just between us) and now today at 180lbs.. 63 lbs. Should I have a ceremonial burial? Or have my husband run as fast as he can to the dumpster LOL 2 scales this past week have been driving me nuts.

So I will take the 182.1 and look forward to the new scale taking me to GOAL! :)

Go in for a Fill..but I don't need one?!

Today I went in for my fill and the NP thinks I am doing so well and in the "green zone" or (my sweet spot) that she wanted to leave me where I am at. And not to come back until after Florida. 8 weeks!! I hope she is right!!

NSV she told me I was shrinking :) it's the little things

Happy Friday!

We booked our vacation to FL, to visit my family and get a little beach time in! 

So I have 6 weeks and would like to be down to 169lbs my stretch goal is 165lb if I make my stretch goal I will be 78lbs lighter than when I was there last March! That would be AMAZING!
