My Little Victory

Monday marks 8 weeks from the day that I announced my goal of trying to lose 10 pounds in 8 weeks.

I will come right out and say it - I did not succeed in losing 10 pounds.

HOWEVER.  I did successfully lose 6 pounds.  I know that 6 does not equal 10, and so technically I did not succeed at my goal.  However, there's no way that I can call 6 pounds lost a "fail," so I'm going to chalk it up as a "little victory."

Tonight we have our first of 3 (maybe 4) weddings of this 2010 wedding season.  It's an Oakland wedding, and we're really excited for it.  Having been through my own wedding has made me enjoy other people's weddings even more.  I'm no longer sitting there wondering when it's going to be "my turn," I don't have to participate in the bouquet toss, and I get to eat, drink, and relax the entire time.  I'm excited.

I haven't yet decided what I'm going to wear tonight.  Originally I was planning on wear the black and white dress that I bought last fall with a little black shrug.  But on Thursday night when I was getting out some of my summer clothes, I tried on a couple of dresses that I thought would definitely be too tight, and they fit!!! I couldn't believe it, and was so excited! But of course now that just means that I have even more options to decide between. 

A good problem to have, right? All thanks to my "little victory."
