I never thought I’d be so excited to buy spandex

I just bought these running tights last night… in size LARGE!!! Not X-LARGE… but LARGE!!! I bought spandex and was happy about it.

I remember at the Blarney run thinking, “My goodness, there is no way in hell I will ever wear spandex running tights like Sarah…” The plan was to someday wear running tights like her. I thought someday was years away.

Seven months later, I ecstatically purchased them.

My, how things change.

Weigh In Wednesday, Pants-on-the-ground edition

These are my jeans. My go-to jeans. My “wear-almost-every-day-of-the-week” jeans. Even washing them every few days doesn’t keep them small enough anymore. Do you see what I’m dealing with people? Saggy butt jeans. They are officially retired (at least until I get them to a seamstress or something). I was getting lunch at work today and quickly ran across the street. In the process, my pants fell almost all the way off my ass. In the middle of Brown Deer Road. At noon. The sun may have been shining but some drivers got a nice view of the full moon.

Obviously, I need some new jeans.

But I digress.

I weighed in this morning at 261.2, down 2 pounds from last week for a total of 13 pounds in 11 weeks. I can’t wait to take measurements next Wednesday to see where I’m at with that. Last time I measured, I was down a total of 13 inches overall, so next week has the potential of being epic.

A few other notes:

  • I’ve had two coworkers in the past 3 days tell me my face is looking thinner.
  • I’ve also had a couple of people say my calves are looking toned.
  • I turned down dessert. Twice.
  • Together, we have raised $930.60 for Crohn’s and Colitis research. Just another $2869.40 and I’ll stop bugging y’all for donations! So, if you want me to stop blogging about it, you should donate. You should also tell your family and friends to donate. What’s $25 in the grand scheme of things? If 115 people donated $25, I would meet my goal. 🙂 #justsayin So, visit my fundraising site: http://tinyurl.com/napa2010.
