a little less but a lot more

February 21, 2012: 167lbs – 20lbs lost!

Ok, so we all know how stressed I feel about bringing my 9 month old baby to BlissDom tomorrow, but do you know what I’m not stressed about for the first time ever at a blogging conference?

My appearance.

I weigh 20lbs less than I did when I bought my ticket to BlissDom in December. 20 freaking pounds! When I set out to pack clothes for this trip, it was so very different than packing for conferences has been in the past for me. I’m not worried about ‘muffin top’ on my jeans because they’re all too big anyway (except my new black skinny jeans. O how I love my black skinny jeans). I bought 2 new shirts that I feel cute and comfortable in without having to search very hard. I even went out and bought a new bra because there’s no way to lose 20lbs and not need a new bra. (true story.)

I found myself easily able to put together several outfits which don’t make me feel at all self-conscious. But honestly, it’s more than that. I feel comfortable in the body onto which I am putting those clothes.

That’s not to say that I’m done losing my weight. Ooooo no, this journey is not over (not even half over), but to weigh less than I have since getting pregnant with OBrother? O my lanta does it ever feel good.

At this, my 6th blogging conference, I am bringing 20 fewer pounds of weight, but so, so much more than that in new confidence.

My Journey to Health:

February 21, 2012: 167lbs

January 30, 2012: 174lbs

December 30, 2011, 187 lbs

20 lbs lost!
