New Dress!

Happy 4th of July to all of you who are here in the states (and to all of you that aren't, I hope you are having a fabulous Sunday)!!  I have so much to get done today, I just feel like I'm running around like crazy.

Here is how I did yesterday:
Burned 2602 calories

I'm taking a break.  Yesterday I didn't track my food, although I was pretty aware of what I ate and I did eat good stuff.  Today I'm doing the same thing for the most part.  I am going to make sure I know the calories in the things I'm eating but I'm not going to write it down, add it up, obsess throughout the day.

You guys and your comments...they make me so happy.  I know I'm doing well and sometimes I just need something to focus on and obsess about, lately it's been making sure I get enough calories.  I talk about OCD a lot but that's how it is, just this ever present thing in my life that affects me every day and I need to back away from this obsession and just be happy with how I'm doing.

Which I am...because I went to wear a dress I bought a month or so ago that I never got around to wearing and the results made me so happy that I photo-documented it.

Hmm it did NOT look like this in the store...

I know it's hard to tell from that picture so here we are again:

It's so huge!!  Even pulling it out like that it's still loose in front.  When I bought it, it wasn't exactly tight but it sure wasn't too big.  I wore it anyway but caught a glimpse of myself once and realized the dress almost looks misshapen from being too big.

So to recap...I feel great, my clothes are looser.  I need a break from the obsession about my calories.  I burned a good amount of calories yesterday, I will burn a good amount today and I will really, really be happy.

Because I'm awesome!!!  How could I not be happy!!! Hope you guys are all feeling awesome today too because I definitely think you're the best :)

Happy fourth of July Gorgeous Cake. BTW- that is your new nickname :)

Keep on fighting the good fight and hang in there girl! It is important you aren't starving yourself so do what you have to do!

Congrats on the loose clothes, LOVE that feeling... Unless its something I really want to wear, then I am a little bit sad, but get over it quickly ;)

It's almost a shame though, because that is such a lovely dress! You'l have to buy it in a smaller size next time :) well done

I did that once... bought a pair of pants that were a little too small in the store... never wore them.
Two years later, I remembered that they were in the cupboard, put them on and they were too big!!!

What a waste, lol. But a good one!

Thank you ladies!! The one good thing about my mom teaching me how to sew...that dress is easy to take in once I have the time and I'll be wearing it again before you know it!
