    • Back to 137.8 on Thursday before saturday weigh-in. We have date night tonight (Friday) so I’ll use today’s stats.
    • I’m thrilled with my body fat %. I saw 21.1% for two days, so that’s promising!

    • It felt great to lift weights again. It’s been too long!
    • I’ve met my mileage goal both weeks so far, and it’s been quite easy. Running has become my lazy workout and I need to get back to IN.SANITY next week
    • This weekend is going to bring me a couple of outdoor runs. I’m so excited!
    • Safely in the 130’s is so close, I can taste it (137.8 this morning, and safe is 136 or less)!

Found!

Hottie has gotten on the purging bandwagon with me (8 garbage bags so far, with a basement full of tubs just waiting for me!) and removed his final items from Matthew’s closet this morning. He shouted that he had a surprise for me, then came into the bedroom, like my prince in shining armor, and presented me with these!

My jeans! The ones I bought when I was 144 pounds (for like, a minute!) that I said I needed to lose 4 more pounds for, but never did. The jeans I thought I donated last year because I swore I’d never be that small again. The jeans I’ve regretted “donating” since dropping weight these last 7 months.

And… They fit… Perfectly! They may be 6-7 years old, but they’re perfect right now!

(It turns out I kept all of my small skirts too, and I think that’s because I ran out of steam last year while purging. Dumb luck…)
