I Want It That Weigh

**Okay, so I usually put my post title in last before I finally upload the entire post, right? And I started the post below as normal, but I have to interject now that I used a Backstreet Boys song for my post title. I was in high school during the peak of TRL's popularity and relevance...I can't begin to tell you how often I watched the video for I Want it That Way. And on top of our constant TRL watching, my friends and I recorded it on tape (TAPE!) and would watch it over and over and over and over...man, those were good times. I still put on a private car concert for myself whenever I listen to that song, which is more often than I should, probably. Also I may or may not have seen BSB twice in concert. And NSync two or three times. And NKOTB twice..in one year...as an adult.**

Oh, my lovelies. I come to you this morning with a happy heart. Because I have (*singsong*) new pictures for you!!!!!!!

Let's start with this one, shall we?



Did you see my twitter about me being a post-it addict? For realsies. So I was looking to see if I had any crayons in my Craft/Office Supply Box (and I DON'T! What is wrong with me?!) and came upon the fact that I have an inappropriate amount of post-it notes. Some of them are still in the packaging! Like those Office ones, for example. They're just so fun! Hello Kitty, Washington Post, my initials, oh my! Why do I even buy them if I love them too much to use them?! These are all the ones that I haven't even gotten to yet, btdubs. I have SIX other notepads sitting on my desk that I use at the moment...Yeah. My name is Laura, and I have a problem.

You know what I don't have a problem with?

Losing weight. Boom.

Here are my latest progress pics!!



Can you guess what weight I'm at? I'll tell you that those jeans are my 20s, still - they came out of the dryer yesterday so they fit pretty well, a little on the loose side. The only thing I don't like is being able to see my zipper outline on the front-facing picture - this is the first time I've worn that shirt in a while and it isn't as loose as other shirts I've worn...but I wanted it to fit me a little bit on the snug side so I can really see my shape.  (Also I may or may not have had to photoshop a small stain out of that shirt...*sigh*)

Anyweight (didn't mean to add the T on there, but it stays!) I actually had a bad feeling about this morning - I was prepping myself to face another week of "Where did all my hard work go?" and I want you all to know that I did my best to remember and hold on to the fact that I did a lot of work and healthy choices and exercising (in the snow!) and I need to be happy with that.

Well lucky for me I can be happy with the scale number too!

218

A nice round even number!

So that brings me to 42 pounds lost! Huzzah!

And thank you for all your shoe comments - I will let you know what happens with my search for new kicks!

I noticed first and foremost how skinny your neck looks, especially in comparison to your other pics. And your tummy. Amazing! Beautiful!
