Hey hey hey Everyone!
Happy Saturday! Happy Saturday-which-I-happen-to-have-to-work-and-it's-all-raining-and-tropical-stormy-outside-and-my-basement-is-flooding-that's-right-the-basement-where-I'm-staying-for-the-next-month!
So thanks to all who told me to get those new exercise pants! I did!
I took my brother out so he could practice his driving last night, and our mom gave us some small Target gift cards just for fun. So we went out to the mall. I found a pair of Champion exercise pants there. They were XXL, but I don't care! I'm a little... weirded out that I can actually buy clothing at a normal
store. Even if it's the biggest size they carry, I really, really don't care. Because, before, at size 24, the best I could do was a pair of men's sweatpants. And even that was a "maybe".
So, I happened to spend a little more than the little gift card my mom gave me.
I got the exercise pants, the running shorts. Then I picked up a cute argyle green sweater >_>, and a blue sweater that hangs down to my thighs. (Winter is coming up, right?
) I need a few new winter clothes anyway.
I'm about to purge most of my 22/24's from my waredrobe. I've been wearing many of them, still. Plus size clothes are expensive as we all know, and for awhile some of them didn't really look that bad, and why get rid of perfectly functional clothing? But, I was wearing one of my usual 22/24 shirts to work one day, and I had to keep adjusting it, and when I walked past a mirror, I looked dumpy. I decided then that I must reaccess my 22/24's. Get rid of anything that makes me look dumpy. Give it to charity. Afterall... I don't think I can get away with wearing 22/24 shirts all the way down to goal. As much as that would be nice so I didn't have to spend as much money.
I'm going away to MA for the week (did I mention this? Oh well, it's on my mind) to help the fiancÚ pack & move. And to get some schtuff done and all that. I'm going to a WW meeting while up there so that I don't miss a week. I'm also participating in the 3FC Biggest Loser contest
Fun stuff! Today's the last day to sign up. And then tomorrow up to the 13th we give our starting weight numbers. And then
yay! Biggest Loser Challenge fun begins.
- I'm sorry to hear you're still having throat issues.
I have to laugh about that quarter life crisis. No no no not to be mean, but because I hear you so well. Totally going through some similar issues. "What do I want to do
with my life???" And the options, and the fear... it's paralyzing. Maybe it's the fear of choosing something else that I'll hate... but I think it's a little like weight loss. I won't know until I give it an honest try. And if it doesn't work, well I've got some experience, and it's on to the next thing! As I've said, I'm planning on going back to school this winter. (Time to get my degree) But, what to major in? Do I do a liberal arts for a well-rounded education? Do I choose what I'd really like? (Arts & Illustration.) Do I go for something that could possibly make me a decent paycheck at the end of the day? Do I choose something that could have a world impact?
I'm not saying each appeals to me, but they're options and they have to be considered. I understand about job dissatisfaction like we're long lost twins. Just this scratchy, uncomfortable longing: "I could be doing... more
- That smoothie sounds great!
I hope the concert & dinner was fun
I can see you reasonably getting off at least
15 in time for xmas. But, I bet you'll look smashing no matter what! Glad to see you're feeling a bit better.
- How could we hate you?! Unless you don't share your extra points with the class
- That's wonderful being OP. It's just a great feeling, isn't it? I hope the 196 sticks as well!
I wish everyone a magical weekend!
