Part of my problem now is I signed up to get a Travelling Red Dress to help lift me out of this funk I've been in for the last 8 or so months but now I feel worse than ever, I'm weepy and have spent the better part of the morning feel sorry for myself (it doesn't help that my knee is KILLING me today). Somewhere out there has got to be a gorgeous red dress that will fit my battered body and lift my battered spirit.

If you read The Bloggess, you already know about the Travelling Red Dress. I was very excited yesterday when my dress arrived. I tried it on this morning and it's too small :( I thought a 16-18 would fit but apparently I'm a moron because there's NO way this dress will fit me currently.

Well, I've taken the plunge (so to speak) andsigned up for 16 weeks of water aerobics at a local Y. They're running a program called Transformation Nation Triad in conjunction with a local TV station, and you get nutrition advice, workouts, health assessments and other information over the course of the program.
Although I'm working closely with my PCP, nutritionist, bariatric surgeon and physial therapist, it'll be nice to be able to have a low-impact workout every week and I may pick up some good information along the way.
The part that sucks is that it's 8:30am on Saturday mornings - BLECH! I'll have to take advantage of sleeping in while I can :)

When I started seriously trying to lose weight in October of 2010 I never thought I'd be where I am now. When I weighed myself this morning I realized what I weigh is equal to the amount of excess weight I was carrying, and the amount of weight I've lost to date equals what my healthy body weight should be.
So, I've lost me (in a manner of speaking), and the image in the mirror today was how much extra weight I was carrying on my frame 24/7/365.
Something about that has really struck a chord with me and makes me wonder how I ever got so broken.
