So Happy Today!!

This morning I went for a pedicure and manicure.  My pedicure looks great.  The manicure?  I don't even know why I bother.  I can't even get beyond the drying are without messing up the manicure.  But my toes look great.  I even had a design painted on the big toes.  Cool!
After I left the nail place, I headed over to Ann's bra shop.  Since I have what is considered a rare size, that is the only place that I have been able to find properly fitting bras.  I was one of the unlucky people who ended up being bigger busted after nursing each kid.(If you're really interested in what size I got up to, then message me)   I was really counting on the natural reduction after each kid.  But alas, my body failed me.  This past Winter, I consulted with a plastic surgeon who recommended reduction based on my body size vs. breast size.  And Tricare approved it.  Well, part of it.  Most of my friends were supportive of my decision to reduce but there were others who were kind enough to remind that "people pay a lot of money for those".  Well, guess what?! The grass is always greener on the other side and I have never been drawn to the idea of large breast.  It is not comfortable and it makes me very self-conscious during certain activities like running. 
This past February, I started a fitness routine so I could get back into shape, lose a little bit of weight, and start to feel good about myself.  I've never had to good fortune to lose weight on top so I really did not count on losing weight on top this time.  However, I was determined to get the rest of my body in good shape.  I figured that if I was in better physical shape, then maybe my recovery from the reduction would be easier.
The reason I am so happy is that it appears that I have lost a little bit on top after all.  I was able to buy a new sports bra 3 sizes smaller than what I was currently wearing.  YES! The fitting specialist at the shop probably thought it odd that I was rejoicing over a bra size but I don't care.  I'm so excited that I have a little less weight on top now and with my new bra, I can finally wear the cute sport tops that I've been wanting to wear. I even bought a Jane strap.  In extra-small.  Extra-small!  And it's still a little loose but it's the smallest size available.  Which means that I am now about 30-32 around instead of 34.  So, I'm going to have a friend adjust the Jane strap so that it will fit a little tighter the way it should.
Sixty two dollars later and I'm so excited.   Well, not about the price tag.
