Seriously, officer, I was wearing them when I left the house

When I woke up this morning, I was feeling old...my muscles were sore and tight. By Noon, I'd pretty much worked any kinks out and was feeling good. Tonight I was almost home, running downhill at a pretty good pace, when I felt my shorts start to slip. They are big on me now, but not big enough to actually fall down, right? Wrong. I almost dropped trou for all the spiders... oh, and all the two story houses along that street...LOL

Coworker S. asked me yesterday how much weight I've actually lost. I have no idea? I didn't get on a scale when I started this (I was afraid to) and I haven't been on a scale yet (to keep myself from being discouraged). Personally I think I could afford to lose another 20-25 lbs. I've been told that's too much and a coworker actually told me to feel blessed I have curves in the right places, some women pay money for them... So I dunno. I'm not going to put any numbers in stone as I'm really only concerned that my clothes fit!

I've been told that pregnancy can actually change things like hip structure... I wonder that is true or just an old wives' tale to make us feel better about never quite getting that body back?

Coming from someone who has seen you in a bathing suit -- you look MARVELOUS! But I have learned that it is not what others see, but what we feel ourselves. SO keep doing what you are doing, as long as it makes you feel good.

I think that I've told you before that you shouldn't try to lose too much. There was a point that I thought you got a bit too thin. I'd do the bone test. If bones are poking out... time to order pizza.

You go girl! Good for you. Not that our pants were falling off while jogging, but cause they're too big. That's awesome. If it wasn't so bloody hot and humid here, I would give waling a try (since I can't use ex. eqipment or diet for the time being) but here, it is so damn hot and humid that you feel like you just got out of a sauna after taking 3 steps, that and you cannot give it a go after dark cause those damn mosquitos will suck out all your blood. Just waling to the mailbox at dusk I get bit 12 times. And nothing works to kill them - the city sprays once a week. Just thinking about it made me itch!
Anywho, keep up the good work. Just don't lose too much, you don't want to look anorexic, skinny & boney may be in in Hollywood, but it's a sick deathly look. Besides I'm sure Karl (?-c?) likes your womanly curves!

Darn, from the title, I thought this was going to be a post about you having a drunken Britney/Lindsay/Paris-like moment.

I think your almost losing your shorts is a spider related conspiracy. They are out to get you.

It sounds like you are doing so well with your workouts! It gives me motivation to lose some weight myself. I want to feel better about myself too!

Amy: I know you always tell me what you're really thinking, so thank you. :)

Martin: Yeah, I remember the conversation. I never really did understand that talk, since I've never been model thin. :)

Angi: Thank you! Do those damn bugs ever go away? Trust me, I'm certainly not looking like I'm starving. I've only been losing for about 3 months at a rather slow pace, so I still have a little way to go.

Beckeye: I do these titles just for you, heh... Sorry to disappoint you with lack of train wreckage. :)

Molie: LMAO - Yeah, right? They probably had some web booby trap connected to my shorts.

VP: You should always feel good about yourself, you are pretty! But I understand the whole feeling comfortable in your own skin thing.
