Hi there! Not much to report; I just wanted to stop by and let everyone know that I'm still out here! As irregularly as I have posted in the last few months, I'm sure some may be wondering what the heck is going on with this girl!
Well, I've been very focused on trying to lose weight, and that has absorbed a lot of time. I hate to admit it, but I've had very little luck affecting my eating habits. While I am definitely eating better "quality" foods (very little fried and / or breaded stuff and far fewer stops at fast food drive-thu's, etc.), my diet is still pretty terrible. HOWEVER! I have more than made up for that weakness with physical activity, and I have been seeing some definite results. [SMILES!] I've even started getting comments from coworkers about my weight loss [GIDDY SMILES!], which always makes me feel great.
The best part is that I pulled out my favorite black denim skirt this morning... just to see. It hasn't fit in over a year [sad face]. This morning though, I slipped it on with ease and didn't even have to "suck it up" to get the button fastened and the zipper up. [GIDDY SMILING SOMERSAULTS!] The best part is that even when I first bought it, I had to really struggle to get into it... and I considered that "a good fit." HA HA!
Beyond that, I was (perhaps somewhat vainly) staring at my legs in the mirror the other day (after a coworker commented that she thought even my legs looked thinner), and I'm amazed at how much more slender they have become. Yay for me!! :)
So, I'm still out here, everything is going well, and I'm looking forward to fall cooler weather and a reemergence for skinny Katie. [and the crowd goes wild!]
Hope everyone is well. Leave a note and let me know you're still out there!
