Another mini-milestone... a milepebble, perhaps?

Hello again! I've noticed that I only post here when I'm in a good mood and have done a pretty good job with the weight loss. Oh well, the more posts the better, I guess.

Anyway, here are the usual stats:

HW: 226
SW: 212
CW: 182
GW: 150

Yep, that's 30 lbs since I started! Nice. It just feels good to be able to tell people that I've lost 30 lbs since 1/2/09. For some reason, 30 sounds like a much bigger number than 29. Go figure.

So, I'm developing a nice relationship with Crystal Light. I've been drinking a decent amount of water, but lately I've been trying to drink more since I seem to be PMSing for a longer time these past few months (which means more bloating, hooray!). Anyway, Crystal Light makes it easier to do that, and they have a raspberry grean tea flavor. Green tea is supposed to be good for you and all that. It hardly has any sodium, only 5 to 10 calories, and tastes pretty good. So that makes it a little easier for me to get in more water.

Ugh, I started weight training, and my arms hurt. I figured it's about time to tone up so I don't get "skinny fat"... you know, when you're thin but still flabby because you aren't toned at all. I don't want to still look flabby after all my hard work.

Change of subject... this weekend I'm going to my parents' house for Easter. My aunt from Louisiana is going to be there, whom I haven't seen since Christmas. Basically, I've lost 30 lbs since I last saw her. I'm looking forward to seeing what her reaction will be. I gotta say, I love the compliments; that's one of my favorite parts about losing weight. It might sound a little conceited to say I love being complimented all the time, but I can't deny that it motivates me.

What's also motivating me right now is my music fraternity's formal dance a week from Saturday. My friend is letting me borrow her dress, and it's a size 12 (a big 12, mind you). I can fit into it, but it's still pretty tight (or was a week ago). I'm going to try it on again tomorrow and see how it fits. I really need it to fit comfortably by April 18th! Or else I won't have anything to wear, which obviously isn't an option.

That's about all that's going on in my life in the weight loss department. Catch y'all later.
