Week 1.2: Wednesday weigh-in and a bracelet of mysterious origin

Whew, the hard part of the week is over!  And of course it is Wednesday, so let’s get the weigh-in out of the way (weigh?) first:
Current Weight: 140.6 lbs
At Last Weigh-in: 144 lbs
Starting Weight: 144 lbs
Weight Loss to Date: 3.4 lbs

Well, that’s a little deceiving!  I’m not sure that I’ve really lost so much in a week, since my weight fluctuates so much, but it feels good to post it anyway.
Also, to address concerns:  According to the BMI calculators, I can go all the way down to 115 lbs for my height (5′ 6″) and still be within the “healthy” range, so I think 120 is a perfectly realistic and healthy goal for me.  I am also extremely pear-shaped: almost all my fat is below my waist and above my knees.  Swirly full skirts are liars!

Anyway, yesterday Boyfriend had to sing his last voice jury (sort of like a mini-audition for the faculty) to be allowed to sing his Senior Recital in the fall.  Since I’m singing a duet with him, I figured I should look at least moderately presentable too.  I got him to take a few pictures of my outfit (and my less-than-entirely-successful curls) outside while we were waiting.  My skirt isn’t really that poofy… I only liked the pictures where I was spinning.  Something about circle skirts makes me want to twirl.

I’m hoping someone who knows something about vintage jewelry can help me figure out what my bracelet isโ€” it doesn’t have any markings on it.  I asked my mom about its origins yesterday, and she remembers that it used to have round, flat, mint-green stones set into the top of each flower.  I’m sure they were all gone by the time I first saw the bracelet, as I have no memory of them.

I also just got new glasses (yay!) as my old ones had finally begun to fall apart after four years.  I like the blue frame contrast and the little cutout hearts on the side… and of course vision is also a lovely thing.
