Rush Hour In The Lap Lanes

I stepped on the scale this morning and it said that I was up two pounds but, during the course of the work day, two of my colleagues implied that I was wasting away. One was surprised that I wanted to lose another 15 pounds or so. Plus, yesterday, my cousin Chiquita asked me to stand up so that she could take a better look at me.

I would like the scale to move but I'm not stressing out about it like I used to because, voilĂ , check out these once snug pants.

It's ironic that most of the weight is coming off my lower half since I would like to lose a little poundage elsewhere. What do they say? People in hell want ice water. The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence...

I had every intention of swimming tonight but so did a lot of other people. It was rush hour in the lap lanes. I ended up walking in the lazy river for close to an hour and my legs felt waterlogged when it was all over. Actually, it felt as if they had fallen asleep and I had to wake them up on land.


  1. Look at those nice baggy pants! Might be time to get a couple sizes down from there. Looking good! Woo woo!

  2. Greta,

    Thanks. ;) I definitely want to try a new size the next time I go to the store.

  3. Those pants are proof that you are working it!! Also, I tended to lose weight in my hips/thighs and then at the end it came off my upper body.

  4. Kudos for the butt shot! Doesn't it feel good?

    Alison :)

  5. great job on the baggy hiney! lol :) People always seem to be in shock when I tell them that I am about 10 pounds from a HIGH goal for weight watchers. I see problem areas still! :)

  6. @Diane

    :o, There's hope that some of the poundage will disappear from the top. Thanks for letting me know. ;)

    @Foster Fitness,

    Yes, it feels good and I'm excited about knocking off some more inches or pounds. :)


    Thanks! Yeah, I know what you mean. I've lost quite a bit but I can still pinch a few inches. :)

  7. OMG LOOK AT YOUR SKINNY LITTLE ASS! (which I mean in the nicest way of course).

    That must feel wonderful! (er, which I also mean in the non-creepy way. Oh what the heck, the creepy way too...)

  8. gingersnapper,

    I'm LMAO. No, I squatted it off...

    Thanks for your niceness. :)
