141.4 this morning!! Could it be that I am finally coming into the 30s?? AWWWW. My hips have finally lowered on my body. I have noticed when I gained weight the new way my body shaped itself, as more fat accumulated on my person. I noticed my hips were higher when I passed 140, at 150, my shoulders got rounder, at 160 , my face changed shape and I looked different, at 170 my upper legs were stuck together and seemed to never moved while I walked. It almost felt like a scientific experience to me as I was looking at my body wondering... what will happen at 180? I didn't want to know what came next anymore as my husband said (very gently) that I looked like an entirely different person. He was right. I didn't recognize myself anymore either. I am so short that even 5 pounds makes a difference either way, while it might take 10 on another person or even 15 on someone really tall.
I am just happy to be watching the body change shape in the opposite direction, but strangely not in the same order as it came on.

I did more of the puzzle last night.

I put money down on the church room. I bought some electric votives and bags for the pathway to the dinner. I purchased streamers and glue dots and wall hangings and picked a few fun things up for Graduation as well. I picked up the Tuxedo. Alex tried it on when he got home and it looked fantastic on him!! Alex and I got his haircut yesterday. It looked great!! That is all the boy have to do right? Brush his teeth, wear a tux and get a hair cut and show up with flowers... :-)

Today I teach and pick up the last of my furniture (an end table) that came in today for my living room. I will go grocery shopping later and I have to pick up a friend from the hospital today after teaching.

It is a beautiful day today. I hope you have a beautiful day there too!

    You are doing a great job. We have the same challenges ( I am 4'11") . I don't seem to be making much progress on the scale but I walk and work out everyday. We have been eating out alot lately and Louisiana does not have many healthy options on their menus- especially locally owned establishments. I know- excuses, excuses. Enjoy your son's milestones and your awesome glow. Great job. emoticon

    What an excellent description of changes on the way up AND down.

    I remember wondering as I approached 140 if I could ever me a 130s woman again.
    Thanks to Spark, oh yes!

    I'm especially happy to see younger women like you taking control of your weight.
    You deserve to be very proud of yourself.
