All about Minimizing

Stats update and free clothes

I forgot to post my measurements for this last week.  Something I thought was interesting was I didn't lose anything according to the scale but I lost some major hip, waist and boobage!!  I am glad that I started doing the measurements so I can see that my body is changing even if the scale isn't.  If only Hot Duchess (HD) would get her ass in gear, it's hard to get pants to fit my smaller butt and waist but my still huge gut!

My friend's mom recently lost a whole bunch of weight and she passed along three boxes and two garbage bags full of clothes for me to look through.  They started at size 22 and went through 16, so there was lot to choose from.  However....let me just say that some of the clothes are for a more mature lady.  I picked out some of the stuff but I have plenty left over, lots of slacks and button down shirts.  Also so skirts and sweat pants.  If anyone out there wants me to pass them along, just let me know!

Peaches and I are going to the Costa Rica for 12 days in November and I would REALLY like to be below 200lbs at that time so I can do all the fun things (parasailing, horseback riding, zip line).  This trip was Peaches Christmas gift from last year so I have had plenty of time to fantasize about it.  One of those fantasies includes me in a smocktop dress holding hands with Peaches and walking on the beach.  Just like in the movies, kicking our toes in the waves, kissing...sigh.  So on Friday I went with my friend to Ross (a discount store, like TJ Maxx) and found almost the exact dress I had been dreaming about.  For shits and giggles I put it on and took a pic, now when I get to wear it on the beach in November I will know exactly how far I have come!

It is a size large and that sucker was TIGHT, also Hot Duchess was hanging out in all her glory, this picture just doesn't any justice to just how lumpy I looked.


  1. That's great to be able to see that you lost inches even in you haven't been losing weight as much as you want.

    That dress is really pretty and I'm sure you will look super hot in it for your beach vacay!

  2. wowza! You may not have lost weight THIS week but look at those numbers!?!?! 295 down to 243 in 2 months!! That's so frikken awesome! (sidenote: we weigh EXACTLY the same right now!)

  3. I bet you'll have to buy the dress in a smaller size before you go!

  4. I really like that dress. I am sure that it will be falling off of you in Costa Rica since you are the incredible shrinking lady. Keep it up girl, I wanna be just like you!
