Sorry I haven't blogged much lately, I don't have much to say diet-wise that I haven't already said. But I thought I'd do a little catching up. An old habit when I see a photo of myself is to instantly critique my appearance. In this photo I go right to my hips. I'm curvy and I'm never going to be stick skinny. But I went and checked the tag on those pants and was unreasonably happy they were a (snug) size 6. Much better than the curvy size 14 I was wearing a few years ago. My weight is still up a little, I am not at my low weight. I am not thrilled with that, but I realize my weight is going to fluctuate.
My oldest son is only an inch away from being the same height as me! We have a lot of fun deciding on a theme and putting together Halloween costumes. We really like Halloween in my household. My boys are still obsessed with Minecraft and dressed up as a Creeper and Honeydew this year. We have a (another) Minecraft themed birthday party next week. It feels great not to be tempted by cake and party treats - in fact it feels very freeing. (This is what I do with the kids' excess Halloween candy)
I also went bra shopping recently. I noticed with my yoga classes and girl's weekends that other women have pretty bras. But my own are more Large Marge Workin' Hard type bras. I need a minimizer and everyone else seems to wear these padded, cute and colorful bras. The bras I buy come in three colors: beige, white and black. Period. Macy's had their buy 2, get 2 free sale on several different brands so I spent a sweaty hour trying on scratchy bras until I found four I liked, that also fit. I settled on the Bali Passion for Comfort Underwire Minimizer and bought it all three colors it comes in, plus a strapless. Then I came home and threw away my old bras. Did you know that your cup size changes when change the band size changes? So if you are a 36C, but the band is too loose, you should try a 34D not the 34C like you'd think. HERE is a great site for figuring out your proper bra size.
