81 pounds! HA!
Good God, y’all. What is it good for? Aaaaabsolutely –
Well, it’s good for a reason to treat yourself to a sweet new jacket and some rockin’ ankle boots. That’s what. I weighed myself this morning and was thrilled to see that I’d lost 5.3 pounds and had moved into the 80’s. 1981, if you will - the year I was born. There's got to be some double-rainbow-mind-bending significance to that...
These last couple weeks have been interesting. I don’t know why, but my body has changed a lot over the last couple of weeks, and it’s been really, really strange for me to try and wrap my mind around some of the things this has stirred up. The more weight I lose, I am constantly surprised by the ways it affects me, both physically and mentally. The mind grows, the body gets... Ehhhhhh, weirder, apparently. It would seem my body is getting better in some ways, and just plain odd in others. We'll discuss the weirdness later this week. It’s not all roses lately, so I've had to keep reminding myself that this is a very good thing.
We've got a lot to talk about.
But for now, you might be wondering, "Well, Sarah, last time you had sushi to celebrate hitting 70 pounds. How about this time?!"
But, that has changed, and I have a rockin' pair of ankle boots to prove it. I may or may not have also purchased a new pleather jacket at TJ Maxx. (That, of course, means yes - yes, I did.) Not only are my new ankle boots just plain awesome, they also happen to be deceptively comfortable. Huzzah!!!
In honor of having lost 81 pounds, here are some photos of me basking in a brazen, wonderfully vain moment hearing Thin Lizzy's "Jailbreak" in my mind while checking myself out in my new goodies.
