And...News...

Just got back from Lewisburg and having my mammogram and bone density test. Piece of cake. Gee, they didn't even have to squish them so much since I've lost all this weight and they are already flat :o), and for the first time it didn't hurt. My appointment was at 3:00 and I timed it wrong and got there at 2:30. They took me on in and I was on my way to Wal-Mart by 3:08. I just love that place. It's the first place I've had tests done that I don't have to wait. I didn't even get to open my book to read for a while because they were on the ball.

I stopped on the way to the tests and had lunch at Ruby Tuesdays. I had a petite sirloin, 1/2 cup of mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli and a salad. Washed it all down with water :o) I was such a good girl!!

Hit Wal-Mart on the way home and guess what....go ahead and guess.....I'll wait.....

I got a new pair if jeans, and guess what size they are....go ahead and guess.....I'll wait....


SIZE 12

I'm so excited!!


AND

I got a smaller size bra!


AND

They had whole wheat pasta.

Still no whole wheat tortillas but they will get them eventually. It was just six months ago that I was complaining that they didn't have the pasta. Guess WV is a little behind the times in getting the up to date stuffs.

Looking at myself in the full length mirror at the test place made me feel really good about myself. I don't look half bad. I don't have any full length mirrors in my home and the ones in Wal-Mart where you try on clothes are the pits. So when I went to Wal-Mart I threw my shoulders back and acted like I was the most beautiful person in the whole store. That really lifted my spirits. You aught to try it sometime.

And all of this is not an April Fools joke either!!

Woo-HOO for size 12!!!

(To be honest, though, I figured that's what you were already. Nice of you to make it official. *G*)

I'm so glad you got to have a nice meal out. I love RT's salad bar, especially in the summertime.

Love the feisty feelsogood-ness of your attitude! I might "borrow" some of that for tomorrow!

Fitting in a new size of clothing is one of the best, if not the best NSV. Grats :)

I don't think the supplements would hurt you but make sure the Omega 3 is just omege 3 and not the other types of fish oils. Check the label. I was already taking 1000mg of Vit C but she said to up it to 2000mg a day. She recommends Emergen C that is a power that disolves in water. Happy Passover Sunday.
