Summer is here, complete with heat, humidity, and pesky mosquitoes. The little buggars love me so much that I can't even go outside for one minute without being attacked. I currently have 5 bites on my face that make me look like I have zits. Hurray for summer!
Now, where's that sarcasm font....
I really do despise the heat, so for those of you who love it, I apologize in advance for offending you. Heat = Sweat, and Sweat = Yucky. As much as I love all things vintage, this is one area where I fully embrace modern technology.....Air Conditioning! Can not, and will not, live without it. So there.
Perhaps it would be different if I felt I could wear cutesy sundresses and shorty-shorts, or even a bathing suit to go swimming in. Alas, at this point, I cannot.
I have gotten off track on my weight loss journey. I have not gained any weight back (hurray!), but I have not progressed any further (booo!). So, my goal of reaching 60 pounds lost by October will have to be adjusted. But, starting today, I am re-motivated to get back on the ol' horse and get to gallopin'! I'm still proud of myself for getting to 20 pounds lost, and if I were already at my target goal, I'm doing all of the right things to maintain. But, I'm not at my target goal, so I need to stop pretending that all I need to do is maintain. I didn't go through all of this hard work to remain at 175 (technically, for the last two months I've been hovering between 172-175). I will be 135 again, I will, I will!
So, I have next summer to look forward to for wearing things such as these:
(funny aside, this polka dot dress I actually found on a clearance rack at a department store here, and lusted after it immediately. It was also in a size 16, which I thought, hey, after losing 20 pounds, surely it will fit! Alas, it was too tight in the waist. I was tempted to buy it anyway knowing I'd eventually fit into it, but I talked myself out of it. Now that I know I can find it online - I ripped this photo off of Overstock.com where I found it - I just may have to buy this one. It's so 30's-inspired, don't you think? Yes Husband, this is THE dress I was going on and on about.)
For those of you in the US, have a safe and happy 4th of July weekend!
