What’s in a letter?

What’s in a letter? Specifically, the letter W.

It’s my hubby’s middle initial.

It’s my son’s middle initial.

It’s a fancy shmancy hotel I’d LOVE to visit some day.

It’s also the letter that comes after my pant size.

Ugh.

Well it did until this week.

The scale reveals 5 pounds down in 3 weeks.

I didn’t need the scale to know that though.

My pants, the ones with a W, they’re just too big.

I need a belt.

But honestly? I’d rather go down a size- to one without a W.

But I’ll wait to lose more weight before investing more.

The investment in time. In money. In clothes that I’ll just pass off.

Because I’m losing it for good.

  1. WAHOOOOOOOOOO!!!
    SO exciting to be out of the W!
    Whoop! Whoop!

    I agree on the waiting to invest in clothes until later. I'm lucky enough to have that box I talked about waiting for me. Plus, a friend just gave me some of her clothes.

    SO SO SO EXCITED for you to be out of the W!
    Congratulations!

  3. That is so awesome!! I'm excited for you! I had to buy a new pair of jeans recently too! I only bought one-- but I do laundry almost daily so it's not a big problem. I wear a belt with one older pair, and I have my new ones. Yay!
    Thanks for the visit & comments on my blog! I'm glad you stopped by.

  4. Congratulations! Alas, the scale has not been my friend, but I do think there is shrinking happening nonetheless. Happy smaller size to you!

  10. Yay! Congrats on the weight loss!

    Personally, I think they should replace that W with a better letter. Like a C for "curvy". W is so boring and bleh, I'm sure you're glad to be rid of it! Whoohoo!

    Have a great week tightening that belt!

  11. Hi, Allie! Thanks for the comment on my blog! 2.5 year olds can be pretty helpful but drive the older ones crazy, huh?!!

    How's your weight loss journey going? I scrolled down a litte bit -- but don't remember seeing if you ended up running a 5k?!!

    Have a great day!

  13. It is a risky game, though, no matter your convictions.
    It has the ability to tilt and pivot for great close shave.
    There is usually an selection of obtaining the two dry as well as damp shaving characteristics with
    most of the men's electrical shavers, irrespective of the style of shaver head.

    Here is my page: which electric razor is best
