I am officially in the 140s (149.2) as of today! Yippie! As usual given my close proximity to 148.x, I would have liked more (b/c I'm greedy!), but I'm happy with this past week's 2lb loss! No word on the blood results yet; they tend to be a little slow about getting back to me once they've received results.
My new bathing suit arrived yesterday. The top is exactly what I was looking for in terms of support. And, because it's a tankini, it is a little forgiving of the various bumps in the abdominal area. The bottom is a bit on the tight side across the derriere, but it's not uncomfortable. And, I think it will be best going forward. That being said, I'd likely be very uncomfortable with it right now without the skirt. The skirt is sooo awesome! It covers just about all of my really uncomfortable areas; although, the area just above my mid-thigh has this odd crease in it that isn't covered by the skirt. But, considering what it does cover, I'll have to deal. I'm curious, though, about what it will look like once it gets wet. Is it going to just "suck" onto my legs? I sure hope not! Depending upon my mood, I may post a pic of me in it for you guys. The way I look at it is if I'm willing to show myself in it to people I "know" why the heck not share it with the world, right? I mean, y'all will be less critical, right? ;)
Oh, and I've decided to do something that confirms I must be insane! My sister's talked me into doing the Nike Women's Half Marathon in October 2007! I'm not a runner, so there are a few factors that have helped me decide to do it. 1) It's in San Francisco, and I LOVE San Francisco! 2) It's specifically tailored toward women with the "chocolate mile", pedicure and massage stations and a special finisher necklace designed by Tiffany. 3) I have over a year to train/prepare for it. 4) And, the biggest reason I'm willing to do it: they are ok with people walking most of it! So, I know I can do it! I'm hoping to start a Landscape Architecture program in the fall of 2007, so who knows where I'll be living at the time. But, since it's on a weekend, it shouldn't matter. I'm very excited about it!
