Happy Sunday!! Oct 23,2011

Hello to all my friends!

Did you think I fell off the face of the earth again? Well, I didnt but my computer did! Seems the old system decided to crash on us and we had to buy a whole new hard drive. Needless to say, hubby has been trying to transfer all the files from the old system & it has been nothing short of big ones! OMG, yesterday he was so grumpy because he spent hrs on the phone trying to get things straightened out. Not fun! Anyways, Im back & I have missed you all!!!! I feel like I have been so out of the loop not being here. I promise to try to get myself up to speed with all of your blogs.

Well, yesterday was weigh in day and I am happy to say that I am down again. Nothing earth shattering, only .8# BUT it is going down and my weight was 177.4 yesterday. Gotta tell you girls, I havent weighed this little in such a long time...I would say easily about 14 yrs. Crazy crazy stuff but I couldnt be happier! Looks like I need to retire my jeans again & start wearing the 14s more regularly. I have had numerous commnets that they are way too big on me, but man, are they comfortable!!! The size 14 Levis are a perfect fit but after wearing them all day, they fell a little snug & I would rather be comfy. Anyways, Christopher & Banks was having their friends & family sale where the entire store is 50% off. I went through my closet & packed up all the clothes that no longer fit me and gave them (3 big bags overflowing) to mys sister Rose but now I am left with a very limited wardrobe. 3 pr of jeans & about 15 tops. Thats it, so I decided to invest in a new pr of dress slacks & I love Christopher & Banks brand. They fit me great & are comfy to boot. Bought a nice pr of black dress slacks in a size 14 and a really cute sweater w/ a blouse attached. cute!! I contemplated getting the slacks in a size 12 also but opted to just get 1 pr for now. I wish I would lose  faster, but Im a "slow & steady" kind of girl & its alright with me. Shopping for clothing is becoming fun again &  I cant wait til I can shop at Talbots again. LOVE their clothes!!! SO classy!

Hope all is well with you girls! Its beautiful & sunny here so I am headed out for a walk now. I have a pot of chicken & brown rice soup on the stove for dinner...yummy!

Miss you all!


  1. HI Sherri. Glad to hear from you. I hate it when I have computer problems. I feel so disconnected from everyone. Glad that scale is moving in the right direction. I had a gain from vacation,but I am recommiting today. Ihave to tighten up ( literally and figuratively!!) and start tracking and watching those portions. Have a great week!

  2. You sound happy:) You will get to your goal in no time! You think I look like skinny minnie...I started at 170! And I am probably much shorter than you are.
    I'm glad you gave the clothes away. Now your only choice is down!
    I missed your posts so I am glad you are back!
    My computer crashed December 20th of last year. I paid to have my files transfered, if I wouldn't have, I would still be trying to figure it out!
    Have a great week:)

  3. I am so happy to hear that you had a loss this week :) If everyone is telling you that your jeans are too big that is a clear sign to start wearing your 14's. Even if they are not as lose and comfortable they will get that way and in the meantime they will help remind you to keep up the good work.

  4. Sherri, that's awesome that you are into your size 14's now! And 177.4? Weren't you just saying you wished you would get out of the 180's and all of a sudden you are down to 177! That's great! Keep doing what you're doing!

  5. Sherri, I missed you and glad you are back. Congrats on your weight loss. I am sure your sister was happy to get some new clothes too. Keep up the great work and you will see that weight come off in no time.

  6. Hey Sherri! I don't know how I missed this post, wonder what else I missed! Awesome job on the weight loss! Absolutely start wearing the smaller jeans - it feels so good to wear the smaller pairs, even when the larger pairs are comfy. Glad you got yourself some new clothes - yay!!
