More Takers and More Random Stuff

We got some more takers. A special shout out thanks to these lovelies who have "signed up" for the Big Girl's Big Step Challenge and remember there's still a month away before it starts so seriously folks, think about it and take that leap and do it!

I weighed in yesterday and guess what? I'm down 20 pounds and I am so totally on my tippy toes doing my happy dance. I am officially under my pre-pregnancy weight, although I'm still much more squishy in the belly (yuck) but my pants are fitting, my shirts not as snug and I am feeling much more myself these days. It's such a wonderful feeling and has me motivated to keep going.

My May goals were met with pretty good results. The only one I failed miserably at was hitting the gym. I still haven't quite figured out a way to manage that. I can come up with excuses galore but bottom line is, it didn't happen. It's on my mental list of things to do, but for now I'm enjoying my walks. I'm trying to hit the road more often during the work week and then on the weekends, when I have more time, I'm trying to really increase the distance. I've been thinking of trying to incorporate some running (gasp!) into the routine so if any of you have got any hints on that, let me know.

Here's a question for all you out there. If you are down from 16 to 14, is that being down one size? or 2 sizes? It would make sense to call it one size if there was a size 15 but there's not, so whatcha think? 2 or 1?

I vote one... but thats just how I count them.

I think it's just one only because it's one size down. But it sure seems like it should be two, doesn't it?

Allison said...

I vote one size as well. But that's awesome, no matter how you count it!

There's no such thing as a size 15? Hmm... then it'd probably be down one size. Although, I find it hard to believe that there's no size 15 ANYWHERE in the world. There's got to be at some stores.

Anyways, you're down 20 pounds? Sweet! I'm right there happy dancing along with you.

For incorporating running, what I like to do is go for long walks outside and every time I cross a street I jog/sprint it instead of walk. It helps when I'm late for something. And gets my blood pumping. Its a nice way to start getting used to running, too.

For the record, there are odd numbered sizes (5, 7, 9, up to 15) but they're usually "misses" sizes, in "youger" styles, etc. I don't know, not too many stores actually use this convention. So I just say from size 16 to 14 is one size.

Congratulations on 20 lbs gone!! That's fabulous :)
