My weight for the last week (now that the scale is finally working again) has stayed pretty much between 265 and 262. Assuming that my scale is not far off from the scale at the Doctor's office, that's about a 10 pound loss.

I have not been able to go for walks the last couple of days as we have been trying to prep for the weekend.

My glucose has been staying mostly in the 120 range.

We are going to a destination wedding this weekend. There will be considerable cheating on the new regimen. It's planned, and I will have to remind myself when I step on the scale next Tuesday that it was my own choice and to not feel like a failure. Doesn't mean I'm going to throw ALL caution to the wind, but if I can't live a little when such a special occasion comes up, what's the point, right?

Once upon a time I was a size 26/28. That was, dunno....15 plus years ago? The last time I made an effort to lose weight i worked my way down to a definite 18, sometimes 16. When I put weight back on I settled in somewhere between 20 and 22. That's a REALLY inconvenient size because 18/20 is just too uncomfortable and 22/24 is just a little bit loose, necessitating the use of belts.

Today is laundry day. Which means I had to grab some clean jeans for last night's outing and the handiest thing was a pair of size 22s. I spent all evening hauling my pants up from one side or the other as we trudged through the mall trying to get the last few things we need for the wedding. Basically, If I didn't keep my hand at my hip, with my fingers through a belt loop, all it was going to take was a few steps and I was going to be putting on a show for all and sundry.

So we went to Torrid to try on some size 20 jeans. There were one or two of their jeggings that i could have worn, but I don't really appreciate seeing myself in skin tight clothing and decided that I need to take stock of my closet before I did any buying.

This morning i stated hauling out the jeans that have been sitting on my shelf for years now. The first thing, a pair of size 20 shorts, were terribly uncomfortable, though I could manage to get them buttoned. If i'd stopped there I'd have been very disheartened, but i kept going and it turns out I have a pair of size 20 black trousers that will do just fine. Got them as a Christmas gift and never wore them as i received them when my weight was on the upswing. Glad I never bothered with exchanging them now! I've not finished, but I've also already dredged up a pair of cropped jeans and a pair of casual black pants with a pretty stitching detail on one side. I even found one pair of size 18 jeans that fit perfectly if it weren't for the huge hole in the crotch. Those are off to donation bag.

Have to get off Facebook and finish getting ready. There's laundry to finish and packing to do before we can hop in the car (hopefully around noon) and head first to Ventura, which will be our base of operations for the weekend and then to Solvang.

There's two weeks left before the 2014 ChOCWalk and still time to donate to help the Children's Hospital of Orange County help to care for the sick children of our community. Please click the link above and help me achieve my goal.

Here's a few pictures of the 2013 CHOCWalk to share with you what a special event this is.
