    Don't worry about it. I didn't know it was an odd size either. I think I was a B-cup last time I was wearing those band sizes, so I didn't notice. I don't really remember though, to tell the truth. I accordioned through so many size and shape changes, I didn't really keep track.

    Judg, I would like the coconut pound cake recipe, even if Tomi doesn't

    Congrats on the new low Tomi! You are doing fantastic!

    As for the bra issue, I agree, it's a pain! I was a 38 DD for a long time. Now I have mostly 36 D or DD. It all depends on the style though as I even have 34 DD. I've found some of my best bras at TJ Maxx and Kohl's (when they have a sale the prices are pretty great). Not sure if you have those store where you are Judg. I just hate having to try 15 on to find 1 that I may or may not like once I'm in it for more than a few minutes. They are jut not normally comfortable.

    Even with a 30 pound weight loss, I've never lost the "rack", but I had it starting in 8th grade, so I don't think it's going anywhere! I wish it would, I always wanted to get a reduction!

    HAHA!!! Reduction! My husband and I were just discussing the option of me getting implants if my girls happen to disappear too much after losing all this weight. I DON"T want to be a 32A again. UGH! He says he'd be HAPPY to buy me fake ones if it makes me happy! Translates into........ I LIKE YOUR LARGE BAZOOMBA'S AND DON'T WANT YOU BE FLAT CHESTED! men......

    Bras --- yuck. I would just not wear one at all if I didn't have to worry about what other people thought. I mean - they are like wearing a harness -- and I hate them! But, society does regulate these things. I mean I personally don't like seeing women walking around braless when it is quite obvious that they are braless! Its pretty hard to hide it when you're COLD!!!! Over the summer there was a girl at the lake -- ok, not a girl - I'd guess she was pushing 40......... she was braless with a very thin top on -- and her girls were not exactly "perky" any more! I swear they were danging just above her belly button!!!!! Like under filled water balloons! It was NOT attractive!

    Oh dear........... need to change the subject!!!

    So, keeping all things primally minded: My weight is holding steady at 181.6 again today I'm thoroughly pleased with this!

    I made it through the birthday party with no cake, or apple crisp (brought by SIL), or ice cream! It wasn't even difficult to say no when asked if I wanted some. Yeah me!

    Oldest step daughter was at the gathering. Holy cow......... I haven't seen her in a couple months - she's gained more weight. Her face is a complete round ball now - and the rest of her is just as round. Honestly she looks 6 months pregnant. And talking boobs.......... !!!!! she's always been well endowed as far as mammary glands go..... she started wearing a bra at the age of 9! So, I would guess she is having to order special bras - like a G cup or something. I feel bad for her - but she's an adult now and will have to come to terms with her eating disorder at some point. Everytime I see her she is bigger. I don't understand why her mom doesn't help her........... she's very "vain" and weight conscious. I know she's tried in the past to get her to be more active and to eat better - maybe nothing she tries do any good. I know how stubborn step daughter can be! If she wants something she will do whatever it takes to make it happen - and if she doesn't want to do something there is NO budging her. when she was about 16 we talked about going in a "diet" together --- but she told me - "I like to eat and I'm not going to restrict myself just to lose a couple pounds." At that time she was only about 25 pounds overweight --- now - maybe 80. Mind you - she is only 5 feet tall.

    Okay --- not a subject I want to go further into.

    I didn't walk yesterday so today I'm heading out........ I decided to try a different route today. So, off It go........ when I get back I'll work on finishing up the rest of the recovering for the 5th wheel project - then do the bills and deposit for the boatshop. oh joy.

    Have a good day all!

    Edit:
    OOOPS -- change of plans....... the rain came in early. I worked on the recovering -- all done but one chair. Hubby will have to help me put it all back in the 5th wheel - but its still at the repair shop. Hopefully there will be a break in the rain showers so I can go for a walk. I think I need to invest in a rain coat.............

    my motivation

    As per Marcadav:
    Do 30-60 days clean primal.
    No grains, sugar, alcohol.
    Eat 3 meals and primal snacks.
    Don't track food.
    Don't tweak.
    Don't expect issues to go away quickly. Instead, just follow the plan and see how things play out.
    Decide on an exercise plan you can/will do consistently during the 30-60 days and then do it.

    Kim, I'll message you, so as not to hijack Tomi's journal.

    No, we don't have those stores here. I usually just go to Sears or the Bay, to tell the truth. My limited experience in specialty shops hasn't been that good. Once my weight settles, I will find the best I can and stick to it as long as possible. I've got one I'm happy with now, of my new ones, but we'll have to see if it stays that way. And I'm going to need more than one kind, for that matter. Tshirt bras for under knits, lacy ones for hubby...

    So - yesterday was our 11th anniversary! Needless to say - I didn't say primal........ I had some alcohol and some cookies. Breakfast was bacon and eggs. Dinner started with seared Ahi, then a small salad with lettuce, olives and honey mustard. I had about 1/4 cup of potato salad. Then a filet mignon with steamed veggies and a long island iced tea. At home we had rum and diet cokes while we watched a movie in our bedroom and ate chocolate chocolate chip cookies. I could have done worse. I walked for about 45 minutes in the morning.

    today - back on track. Not sure what the scales are doing - yesterday they were back up to 183 - I didn't check today. I think I will stay off until wednesday.

    Lots to do today............. and the Seahawks are playing too!

    What? You didn't buy something lacy for your anniversary? You missed your chance, girl.

    It sounds like you didn't do too badly. Celebrations are celebrations...
