Not Ready for Lingerie...

Sunday, June 24, 2012

Sooooo the other day DH and DS and I went shopping, soehow we ended up in the lingerie section...I have never bought lingirie before lol (remember I have always en overweight) DH pointed a couple babydoll type items and said they were nice and I agree they were very nice but I just don't feel ready to wear something like that!! Now my question to you is how can I get over this? I'm pretty sure wives wear these for their husbands all the time, why can't I?

Ugh insecureties!!! emoticon

    I second what Whitney said. Buy some and rock it.

    Allie, you have a husband who obviously is attracted to you, not matter your size, so embrace your curves and ROCK THAT BABYDOLL.

    I think your husband is telling you something Very Loud and Clear. He wants to see you in something cute and flirty. He's not looking at you critically. He's looking at you with love and that makes a big difference. I know you didn't ask for my advice, but I'm giving it anyway: go back out and buy something that emphasizes the best part of your figure. Put your little guy to sleep. Then put on a little Sinatra, dim the lights and pour the cabernet. And here's the thing. You said you don't wear lingerie. No one wears lingerie for long. That's the point. LOL

    Some day when you are feeling good and confident, say after a good weigh in and a good workout, go by yourself and try some different stuff on - all different styles and be open minded. Get used to wearing it in the fitting room and then maybe at home a little before you show it off to your hubby - might help you feel more comfortable. I say go for it. If you really try and just aren't into it, that's okay, maybe it's just not for you. But I think you will be happily surprised when you find something right for you and your shape. You could try a corset style too for figure flattering or even just a silky lacy nightgown type thing to start. Good luck!

    Allie - i agree you should try on a few different styles. Your husband is going to love all of them, im sure! But whatever you decide to go with should make you feel super sexy. I found that I'm not a fan of babydolls because I'm so self conscious of my stomache. But...i found a lace one piece that is form-fitting that from my chest to thighs that I thought was flattering for my shape. And always wear heels. You'll automatically feel more confident w heels :-)

    How do you know unless you try? You might feel amazing and sexy? Try your new body out.

    That's a hard question but lingerie is not really for you it's for DH soooo......Would he be excited if you wore it for him? I bet he would. emoticon

I love random compliments!!

Friday, June 22, 2012

So yesterday at the rec center I went to the front counter to return a basketball DH had borrowed and the lady at the front desk said "wow you just keep getting tinier and tinier every time I see you" emoticon I was taken a by surprise, cause well I'm not really used to random compliments like that I just said "thanks, I still have a long way to go!" It was perfect timing for such comment because I was really feeling discouraged since the scale just won't budge, clothes are fitting much better though!! So thank you front counter lady!!

    It is a wonderful feeling when strangers give you a compliment. I figure they must really mean it because why else would they say something? It's not like it's your SIL who may be buttering you up because she's gonna ask you to babysit...

  I love random comments too. It's amazing to get support from people you didn't even know existed. It tickles me to get messages from people who are not my friends on this site. I suspect that they soon will be though. :)

Weekend Recap, the good the bad and the yummy!!

Monday, June 18, 2012

As we all know weekends are tough nutrition wise...they are for me anyway.
More so during summer months emoticon family, fun, sun and food.

So Friday my DS had a t-ball game (he played really well btw and had a good old time) I was snack smart and brought my own low cal popcorn to the game and all that and then ruined it with some candy that made my tummy ache emoticon Lesson learned, moving on...

Saturday was bad.....had a birthday party to take my son to so we went shopping for a gift in the am...kid wanted pizza for lunch and I caved in...I had planned on eating a "light" lunch knowing there would be tons of food at the party, well although I didn't eat much pizza I could have made a better choice "bad mommy"lol
burgers and hotdogs at the party, had one of each and some pasta salad...carb mania lol my son had an awesome time though. No birthday cake for this chick!!

Sunday fathers day I ate like it was my day though! Started the day out good with a green smoothie emoticon cooked (and ate) DHs fave breakfast chilaquiles and eggs, then I made sushi and lettuce wraps to take to my parents' house and well had a few more pieces of sushi than I intended...and 2 tacos and a couple of beers carbs carbs carbs!!!!!!!!!!

Good weekend, need more self control on portions!!!
Add 1 visit to starbucks on each one of these days btw emoticon

    Sounds like a good weekend!! Weekends are tough for me too, sounds like you made the best of it though! Everything in moderation! You are conscious and learning what makes your tummy ache and what is good!! WTG!! :)

    Sounds similar to my weekend last week. The important part is that you're being mindful of what you're eating now. It could have been a lot worse.

The best NSV Compliments from the hubbs!!

Monday, June 04, 2012

So Saturday we had my Grandpas 92nd birthday celebration, I got all dolled up and DH said "You look very pretty" he always says that so it was no big deal...the next morning we were getting ready to go and DH asks me "So, how much do you weight now?" I said "138-139ish why?" he said "You're looking great!" I said "ok thanks??" hubs "seriously, you are looking really thin and your hard work is paying off!!"

Music to my ears!!! emoticon

June Goal-30 Day Shred!!/McDonalds drive thru 2x's and didn't order anything YAY!!

Friday, June 01, 2012

Well I managed to accumulate 1480 fitness minutes in May yay!! (20 min short of my 1500 minute goal but that's ok:)
My Goal for the month of June is to do the 30 day shred video everyday and lose 5-7 lbs 10lbs would be ideal but there are lots of festivites in my family in June so if I lose 5 I would be happy! Wish me luck Sparkies!!


So yesterday I went to the McDonalds drive thru twice and did not get anything for myself YAY!! DH wanted a breakfast burrito before DS' swimming lessons, and then DS wanted a breakfast mcmuffin after his lessons so I was so very proud not to order anything for myself woo hoo!! emoticon

I stepped on the scale this am
139.8 not too bad I had a few indulgences this past week.
Have an awesome weekend!! emoticon

    Congrats - great job on everything! I requested mcdonalds breakfast yesterday, but it was because I wanted to try the banana blueberry oatmeal! Funny how a year ago I would have gotten a bacon egg and cheese biscuit meal at least! Great job!

    Wow. Twice through in one day and you didn't order at McD's! That's Herculean Will Power!

I'm not going to wish you luck. You'll succeed in reaching your June goals through thoughtful perseverance. If you can resist the drive through twice in one day, I'd say you've got perseverance!

    Woo Hoo! I would just like to say that going through the drive thru and not ordering anything is crazy hard! I have to do this on my lunch hour almost everyday because I always bring and my coworker (that I have lunch with) always orders out so I can appreciate how hard this temptation is to resist. Great job! Also congrats your scale victory!
