Scale was at 141.6 lbs. Sooo close to permanent maintenance.
Regarding clothes shopping, I have HAD IT with most stores (Kohls, Penney's, etc.). Why does everything have to be a pregnancy shirt with hideous patterns? Reconnecting with vintage and consignment shops for clothes (which I will blog about. Some day.) has proven to be at least a temporary salvation. For example, this awesome Anne Klein denim skirt for $8. Yeah, that's right. And I couldn't even find a denim skirt at Kohls. Just "skorts." Ick.
But even more kickass? This baby is a size 6. SIX!
With room to spare.
Maybe it's vanity sizing, but I'm not ashamed to take a bite from that apple.
