Some of you mentioned that you don't see how I could have "lumps and bumps", so I will show you a picture of what I'm talking about. This takes a lot of courage to post, so please be nice! I will show you comparisons of shirts. These are all the same brand (Under Armour), but different sizes and fits...
|THOSE are the lumps and bumps that|
I was talking about, lol
|This is the shirt I ordered and said |
I couldn't wear because it showed my
lumps and bumps. See how see-through
it is? You can see my belly button!
|This is the one I am going to wear.|
I'm am most comfortable in it--not
too tight, too loose, or TOO see-through.
And it matches my slash capris!
See what I mean, by clothes hiding a lot of flaws? Since I just had a lower body lift, my upper body still has a lot of excess skin. My arms are the worst, but also under my arms, and even my upper back. It's not "fat", you can see bulges from my loose skin. I'm not too worried about it. The stomach REALLY bothered me (obviously, because I had the skin removed); but the upper body is just normal annoyances, I think. I just have to take care when picking out clothes.
So I finally got that taken care of. I just took the shirt to a place about 30 minutes away to have my blog address printed on the back, as well as my name printed on the front... they told me it would take 3 days. I was really bummed! So I won't have that stuff on there, but at this point, I really don't care. I just want to be done thinking about the clothes.
I kept telling Jessica we were going too fast, and she better not pull that shit on Sunday, or she'll be running alone. It barely felt like we even started our run before we had to turn around. We finished and ordered frozen yogurt, of course! They had strawberry and chocolate, so I ordered a twist of the two. Jessica just ordered the strawberry.
Supposedly, the 4-oz serving of frozen yogurt was only 70 calories! I should go there more often. That was totally worth 70 calories.
Tomorrow morning, Jerry, me, and the boys are leaving for Cleveland. We're probably going to go to the zoo and maybe the science center tomorrow. Jessica isn't leaving for Cleveland until Saturday, so I'll meet up with her then. Renee and Andrea are going as well, and they will be our cheerleaders on Sunday. I am SO excited that they are going to be there! They've both run marathons before, so they know how big of a deal this is to Jessica and me.
I'm going to bring my computer with me, to hopefully write a blog at the hotel on Friday and Saturday, but I don't know for sure if I'll have internet access. If not, you'll probably get a race report on Sunday night--if I survive, that is! ;)
