Well, it’s been over a month since I’ve updated.
That does not mean I haven’t been weighing in or attending meetings, it just means that life has gotten in the way.
This is why I am not making a living at this blogging thing.
So to the update:
I have lost 30.3 lbs total!
I received my 25 lb loss washer for my key chain a couple weeks ago.
I have been plugging along. I like Simple Start or Simply Filling and have been following that. I’ve been posting more food pictures than I was before and following some great ladies who are also on program on Instagram so I’m getting different food ideas which has been helping too.
I need to start walking again at work. It’s too hot for me to comfortably walk in the parking structure now, but I think I may start to walk in the halls. I still hate to have people seeing me walk but maybe I still shouldn’t care about such things and just move myself and do it!
One awesome thing….I had to buy new work pants!! I haven’t worn my old ones in a couple weeks now. I am not even going to try to put them back on to wear them. I need to donate them somewhere or else see if I can sell them to a local plus sized retail shop in the area, Hips. I have a couple pairs of jeans to take there too and see if they will buy them from me…even for store credit. I actually bought a pair of work pants there that are Torrid and I probably could use a size smaller, but they were only $15.00. So I’ll wear them until they are REALLY too big on me. I actually threw them in the dryer hoping they would shrink a little bit.
I’ve never really been into clothing or anything, but it’s kind of exciting to shop for smaller sized clothes. I will be really excited when I can go into Kohl’s or Target and buy some work pants. When pants don’t cost me $70.00 a pair, I will be ecstatic!
Shirts are another story. I still like them bigger than I probably need, and I have so many that are too big or fit well now that didn’t before so I am rediscovering my old wardrobe. I have a shirt that my inlaws got me from Hawaii that I am determined to fit into. It’s my anchor, if you are on program you will know what it is. I try it on every couple weeks. I could probably get away with wearing it, but it’s a little tighter than I am comfortable in. Soon though, I think! I will post a photo once it fits. I don’t have many casual t-shirt type shirts. When a shirt is over $40.00, you only buy work clothes and wear those all the time when you go out lol. But, I do see more t-shirts in my future!
How weird will it be to go to Disney World and be able to buy a t-shirt that doesn’t have to be brought up from the basement and is only 5 in the store to choose from that come in a large enough size?? I can’t even imagine what that will be like! It’s been SO long.
I am hoping to resume my weekly updates and write about other things.
I still am not sure of the direction I want this blog to take.
I’ll post again soon…
