Thanks for the shorts comments guys. I actually went out and ran in them on Thursday and the world didn't implode, so I think everything is going to be okay. I plan to wear them out in public again today in fact.

So things aren't going as well as they had been. I had a good friend's wedding shower yesterday and ended up hanging out with the girls and drinking mimosas for most of the day. Which led to eating a LOT of crappy food. I did try to make up for it with a salad last night, but the damage has already been done. I checked the scale this morning and was up 2.5. Eek. I know it's probably a good deal of carb bloat and water weight and if I get back on track today I should go back down, but I doubt I'll be losing at all this week. I really wanted to keep my good losses going, but I feel okay about it. I know I'll be back to it today and hopefully there won't be too much lasting damage. It really is amazing how just one day of eating can change your body though. I feel kind of gross.

So today is father's day here and I'm going to go over to my parents at some point and maybe even go to the pool. This will be my first venture into a swimsuit this year if it happens. Feh. I'll let you know how it goes. I'm actually a few pounds lower this year than I was last year at this time, so hopefully it won't be that bad. I guess it depends on who else is there really. Okay off to read some blogs. Hope everyone is having a nice weekend.

Yay for wearing the shorts! See? Nothing happened and you were fine. And I'm sure it'll be just the same with the swimsuit. Go Jeni! Just think of all the AP's you can get by taking a swim...

I totally hear you though... I'm exactly the same, it matters a lot to me who actually sees me. It's kind of stupid though, isn't it? I mean, why can I feel ok in shorts or skirts or my swimsuit when I'm on holiday where nobody knows me, but feel the need to wrap myself up in a huge towel the second I step out of the pool when I'm here where people know me?

Hi thanks for stopping by and posting a comment. :)

Sounds like we both had less than desireable weekends. At least you have a good attitude about moving forward and not looking back!
