Weigh In Wednesday - Non-Scale Victory

I'm linking up with Ash for WIW.  My weight hasn't really moved at all the past few weeks ---- and since last weekend was a holiday; I'll take NOT having the scale go up this week!

Weigh In Wednesday

I have been trying on all of my "summer" clothes since before we went on vacation in April.  I'm very happy to say that everything fits (or is actually a little too big now).  I was beyond excited this past weekend when I pulled out a pair of shorts that have not fit me in over 2 years!  Clothes are always such a great way to "measure" since often the scale and/or measuring tape itself don't really move.  This picture below is from this weekend - we were fortunate to be able to go out on a friend's boat and the girls got to go fishing for the first time (bonus - I'm wearing the shorts and I let my hubby take my picture- I really need a haircut!)

I'm back on my eating plan and I've started back up with my morning workouts this week!  I'm hopeful that the workouts will kickstart the weight loss plan back into gear!  But, I know you've all heard it before - you can't outtrain a bad diet --- true, but you still need to do the work.  I've been eating well, but I have been slacking in the workout category!  Back to business!!!!!

And speaking of clothes.........I am so excited that I finally found a Maxi Dress!!!!  I have been looking and trying on Maxi Skirts and Dresses all over the place, but they NEVER seem to fit me.  You see, I'm short --- I'm 5' 3" short and I have short legs.  Most "capri" pants are basically correct length pants on me and while everyone out there can sport an awesome maxi dress or skirt, I cannot.  Until NOW!  I saw this adorable maxi dress last week at Target.  I held it up and was shocked to see that it wasn't skimming all over the floor like I bought it.  Tried it on at home and love it!  I haven't taken my photo yet, but I will.  As you can see on the model below, this isn't exactly to the floor on is on me, but still not scraping the floor with 3 extra inches of fabric to trip over.  SO, if you are vertically challenged and looking for a cute maxi dress, go check it out!

  1. What a cute maxi dress!! I feel your pain on trying to find good ones-- I'm not short, but I need wide straps (no triangle tops) so I can wear a real bra. Good luck with getting back to business :)

  2. Cute dress! My husband asked me the other day waht was wrong with my pants...I said nothing, they're capris and they're rolled up a on the bottom...he said oh, I thought they were your normal pants and you got them wet or!
