The last time I was this successful at losing weight I was in my early 20s. I did WW and lost about 25-30 lbs. I was about a size 4 for a minute or two and then settled at about an 8-10 - which is where I'm at right about now give or take.
Anyway the point is I wore skirts all the time back then. I had a second job as a hostess at a local restaurant and would wear these sometimes cute and almost always cheap clothes to work every Fri and Sat night. Think Joyce Leslie or Mandee or similar.
Hey I was a recent college grad...and there was no such thing as H&M back then!!
And then I got fat.
I got so fat I stopped wearing jeans altogether - since jeans meant a button that would threaten to pop off and hit someone across the room in the eye and then there'd be a lawsuit...
My mom's a lawyer. I know what a litigious society we've become.
I wore pants all the time. Skirts and dresses made me feel like I was wearing a tent. I wore pants - black for the most part with either a side zip or some sort of stretch or elastic involved.
I'm very happy to report that today I'm wearing a skirt again. Black wool, above the knee, size ten with a belt because the waist is a little loose. :)
Let me tell you. It feels good to be back.
I slept well - and late - woke up at about 7:15. No gym today either. I was thinking of going for 20 min but I traded it for a longer workout tomorrow. I wound up walking close to 6 miles overall yesterday and already have 1 mile down this morning. I'm going to walk uptown to meet my mom, sister, aunt and various cousins tonight for a cashmere trunk show and dinner tonight.
More on that later.
First - my breakfast. A hardboiled egg and a whole wheat English w/Laughing Cow Light Swiss.
And now...I'm off - to enter polling questions for my webcast later.
