BIG MISTAKE! HUGE!!!

Monday, January 28, 2013

Last summer my fluffy sister and fluffy me were on the hunt for dresses to wear to my daughter's wedding. Unbeknownst to us we made a shopping faux pas and entered a store that did not carry fluffy girl sizes. I thought, "Alright girl! Just play it cool." As my sister and I perused the store the young, snotty sales lady walked towards us and in her most smirky voice said, "Can I help you?" We asked her to point us towards the dresses (of course leaving out dresses in our size). Then she had the NERVE to ask what size we were looking for...RUDE!!! I remember thinking, "Seriously???? You had to go THERE with us????" So my smart sister and I avoided answering it and told that snot we were unsure. She pointed us towards the back of the store and off we went. As we headed towards the back, my sister and I felt every eye was on us and we knew everyone must have been thinking, "What are THOSE FLUFFY GIRLS doing in a skinny girl store???" We shopped a little longer and then quietly sneaked out. When we got out of there we were beyond FURIOUS!!!

This weekend I enjoyed some awesome sister time with this same sister. She and I are on our way to a healthier lifestyle. She had the sleeve a month ago and is dropping weight like crazy! I too am WELL on my weigh to losing weight. My weigh in day is Saturday, and I'm anxious to see how much I have lost this month. Anyway, we got to reminiscing about that HORRID experience last summer. We made a pact that when we get to our ideal weight we are going to have our PRETTY WOMAN moment. We are going to waltz into that skinny girl store with many, many bags in tow. We will sashay our skinny hiney-bo, fanny-boos straight to that snotty sales lady and say, "Remember us fluffy girls? You work on commission right? BIG MISTAKE! HUGE!" Then we will shake our skinny butts right out the door with our heads held high and our chests puffed out. LOOK OUT SKINNY GIRLS! HERE WE COME!!!

    I havenever understand any customer service related personnel who don't seem to like dealing with customers. Not good for the store that employs them!

I hope you have your moment and relish it.

    The same thing would happen at Lane Bryant if a skinny woman walked in and asked to see the size 2s. Smaller women are NOT better than heavier women, just smaller. I didn't lose my weight to be superior, just smaller. There are stores I can't shop in because the clothes are intended for young people; sparkles and sequins and the like. I don't feel denigrated, it just doesn't sell to me. There will always be a store that has something I want. God Bless America!

BOO ME!

Saturday, January 26, 2013

Well I knew eventually it was bound to happen. Yep you guessed it...I fell off the wagon. No more like I jumped off the wagon and landed right into a big ol' pile of lard! I had a BAD day yesterday! BOO ME!!! Now that I've gotten that out of my system, I'm onward and upward, or make that onward and downward (HOPEFULLY). Today was a GREAT DAY! I gotta spend some sister time with my sweet sister! We went to the movies, went shopping, went to eat and made HEALTHY eating choices, AND I got my hair did! More importantly though I feel focused and ready to conquer a new week!!! LOVE ME SOME SISTER TIME!

LATE NIGHT WORKOUT

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Tonight I thought I would out smart the crowd at the gym by going late to work out. By late I mean 8:30 at night. (You know you're getting old when 8:30 is late.) I thought for sure I'd have the whole gym to myself, but noooooo all of the other people who made it their New Year's resolution to get fit were there to work out too, right along side me. UGGG! I thought for sure I'd see something unusual like someone working out in a gas mask, trench coat, crocks or dress clothes (all things I've seen at my gym BTW), but noooooo! Just a bunch of boring people like myself trying to keep the good ole' New Year's Resolution alive. Give it up people! I want the gym all to myself.
Sincerely,
The Queen B

    Well at least you were there!! Give it another month and you probably will have most of the gym to yourself! Patience and persistence pays off! emoticon

ANOTHER BLOG???

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Some of you may be wondering, "Does this girl just love to blog, or what??? I mean, two blogs in one night is a bit over board!" I will admit it is a bit over board, but I am trying to challenge myself to blog and track every day for one month. Last night I was having some technical difficulties, so I was not able to blog or track; therefore, I am making up for the one I missed last night. So here is last night's, tonight.

On another note...Why is Diet Dr. Pepper so addicting??? It is the devil! It consumes my every want and need (I guess it doesn't consume my EVERY need- I'm just saying that for dramatic purposes!)

    So long as you are not drinking it instead of water, go for the Diet Dr. P. I like it, on occasion, when I really have a sweet craving. emoticon is better than emoticon in my opinion.

WORKOUT BUDDY~YIPPEE!

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Well yesterday I finally got me a workout buddy. My BFF teaching buddy went and worked out with me. I was amazed at how time flies when you're having fun. emoticon We are even considering joining the Zumba class. I wonder if they should put a caution sign up...
"WARNING-FLUFFY GIRL (that'd be me) COULD PUT AN EYE OUT! BE AWARE OF FLOPPING BOOBAGE AND WIGGLIN' HINEY-BO FANNY-BOO!"
