Purple means that I'm in ketosis! Ketosis basically means that my body is using fat as energy. And I feel like I've been fighting for that damn purple stick for the past 3 weeks! Plus, I was starting to run out of sticks to pee on :)
Check in went fairly well on Saturday. I stepped on the scale and was happy to see that I had dropped 2 lbs. For some reason, I feel like I'm really having to fight (like Manny Pacquiao!) for weight loss this prep. I've been telling my body, "I'm short on time so let's get the weight loss ball rolling" :) I will admit that I am happy that my bootay seems to be tightening up....woo hoo for less ass sagginess!! Last week, I shared with you about my mom and the wonderful gift she gave me. Well, there's more to the story. I called Tom that night (he was on shift at the fire station) to share with him what my mom had done and he proceeded to tell me that in his underwear drawer was an envelope of money he's been putting aside for my suit! He was surprised I hadn't seen it since I put away his underwear...lol...but once again, I was blessed! I know how hard he works for the money he brings home and I'm so grateful that he's willing to go without so I can have a beautiful suit. I've decided to go with a Tamee Marie suit that is similar to this one and she is going to send me fabric swatches so I can make a final decision about color. I'll let you know what I decide.
Here's to a great week, everyone!
