Going Down…

November 16, 2008
And now for some good news…well, it is to me…! 
I weighed myself this morning…and have lost another two pounds…yay!!!  (Remember that I am only 4’11"…and a half!)  Because of the tablets I was previously on, I ballooned to a very solid ten and a half stone…from eight and a half, or less, that I was before my thyroid went beserk.  This left me feeling very ill, and very low (no quips about my height…or lack of it, thank you very much!!).  But since I have stopped taking those horrid tablet, and have had my other medications reduced, I’m feeling a lot better, and the weight is going…slowly, but at least it’s going.
Sunday is my day for weighing and measuring, and today I am nine stone twelve…yippee…!!!  Under ten at last!!  Bust measurement has stayed the same throughout…strange, but not complaining.  Waist and hips took most of the blubber, taking me from a petite size 8/10 up to a ghastly size 16…I wanted to hibernate!!!  I’m now more comfortable at size 12, but am aiming to get bck into my old, smaller clothes…not old as in old and worn, but old as in pre-thyroid…!
The important thing is that I am feeling so much better, with myself, as well as health-wise….but I still want to look like this……

    Hi Sandi, at 5 ft 7" I would love to be in a size 12, that`s my goal.
    The size 16`s suck, but since I quit smoking that`s me, tho they`re baggy now,
    so hopefully by the new year I`ll be in 14`s.
    Congrats on your weight loss, and have a great Sunday. xx
    ps…I`m surprised Mike didn`t zoom in on the stilleto`s!!

    A size 14 and up is " full figured", I prefer " curvy".
    Size 8 or 10 is " average", and 6 and below is for the skinny, skinny gals.
    I do not know anyone who is 6 or below, my mom is 5 ft 3" and an 8 or 10
    and she looks great, a girl at work is your height and looks great in 12 or 14.
    When I read the title of this blog I keep thinking of Aerosmith`s" Love in an Elevator" 
    Going…Down, lol. xx
