Jeans Reward Turned into a Shopping Spree..

Saturday, May 01, 2010

As many of you know, I went on a shopping spree.. did I ever! Initally, it was going to be just jeans.. as my reward. Well.. it turned into much more than that.

Jeans. At least two of the four pairs are size 16s!

Shirt galore!

5 pairs of shoes! Regular sandals, dressy sandals, ballet style shoes, and zebra hightops.

1 Braclet.

Here is a photo of it all.. from Maurices, Goodwill and good ole Walmart!



[Sorry that it is hard to see it all.. but you get the picture.. haha.]

Focusing on the good... :-)

Saturday, May 01, 2010

In the last few days, I feel I have been complaining alot so today.. I am writing what is going right in my life..

In no particular order.

1. Went on a shopping spree... and found size 16 pants that make me feel sexy. (Watch for this blog.)

2. Limited depression symptoms (Do I hear no more counseling sessions?)

3. Shock and awe. (When I tell people how much weight I have lost.)

4. My family.

5. SparkFamily (SparkFriends and SparkPeople) emoticon

6. Seeing a close old college friend at Wal-Mart very randomly

7. Getting my tax refund check

8. Money from working on Saturdays

9. Work (more money! When I have money, I am not stressed.. so emoticon for money, lol)

10. Being told I am a "good gal" from my ex-boyfriend/friend

11. Getting paid to go to college "camp" for a week in August

12. My Weekend of Welcome Leader position with First Year Experience (basically an Orientation Leader for Freshmen or Transfer students)

13. Getting the position Vice President of Social Programming for Residence Hall Association

14. Being within my calories so far today

15. God (I did say this was out of order, right?)

16. Cleaning out of my dresser to make room for new, better fitting clothes

17. School ending in two weeks

19. Having determination.. to better myself. Weight loss and counseling has completely changed my me and life!

20. Most recently, loss 3#!

21. Could break into the 190s by June... emoticon

22. A guy I know.. a true friendship.. a super nice guy.. it seems just right.

23. Money for food and clean water . (Seriously, think of all the people that live in poor countries..)

    It's nice to list all the good things in one's life. Puts it all in perspective...how truly lucky and blessed we are. You are a lucky girl....and hardworking. I especially like number 1. It is good to go down to the smaller size; it was all your hard work. emoticon emoticon emoticon Sharon

Confessions.. and an addendum to my challenge!

Saturday, May 01, 2010

I have a confession... I am confessing for three reasons: (1) it keeps me accountable (2) I need to get on back on track (3) I feel like I am misleading you all emoticon

So what is so terrible? Let me tell you..

I am doing the 100 day challenge.. and in the last week, I have cheated alot. I have gone out to eat. It has been mainly to Subway.. actually, I think that is the only place. So, that's good. Subway is easy because it is cheap and easy to count my calories with. emoticon

How did it all start? Well, things were going great.. until a friend is like do you want to go to Subway. The first week I did really well and didn't go. But, than this week, I was like, "Oh, one time won't hurt." WRONG! After that, I ate at Subway, I think 3 more times.. including today.

Oh.. I have another confession. I went to Cold Fusion... after not going for weeks.. WEEKS! It was nice to see people and I went because I felt lonely, down and they are always happy there. I try to not go there because I tend to go over my calories.. I don't think I did. I had some cookies and gummy worms that I did not track yesterday.. (like I said, it was a bad day).

Addendum:
For the next 10-day sections, I think I am going to have an addendum in where I can only go to eat at Subway and no where else. In addition to this, I can go out to eat but only 3 times. Each time will be like a strike.. three strikes I am out! I am going to consider Cold Fusion as strike one.

So, there you have it.. my confession.

A day to cuddle.. if only.

Friday, April 30, 2010

I hate crabby days.. but I guess we gotta have them or we wouldn't appreciate days that aren't crabby, right?

Nothing.. particular.. really happened either! *sigh*

I guess I am having one of those days.. where I just want to stay home.. cuddle with my boyfriend.

Oh wait..

I don't have one of those..

Anyhow, it is where I just want someone to give me a hug and never let go. And, I don't mean just anyone.. but someone that cares about me and I feel like I have a connection to..

By the way, you guys are the greatest! If I could only have 1% of this in person. Today, when I was reading comments from my blog, I almost started crying..

*sigh*

Updates.. with some frustration vented!

Friday, April 30, 2010

Honestly, I am kinda annoyed.. with a few things this morning and it not even 8:30 am!!! Oh, dear!

1) This morning I weighed in at 206.8.

Now this is good and bad. From last week's weigh in (209.6), I lost 3# in 10 days weighing in at 206.8. That is great.. but I did more exercise minutes, weight trained more and did not go over my calories.. I was really hoping for 4#. Mind you, I know I didn't have a BM this morning so I probably did lose 4#.. sorry if that was TMI.

On the positive side, for the month of May, I have three 10-day periods in it where I weigh myself. I am thinking, if I can stick with the 3-4# loss for each 10-day period, I can break into the 190s and leave the 200s behind forever!

Wait for it...

emoticon

Seriously, how exciting would that be?!!

2) This morning I went to the RHA meeting. It wasn't that bad. I mean it could have been way worse. I didn't have anyone to talk to. On the other, it was 7 am in the morning and well, I am not very talkative when it is that early! Seriously, I don't even get up this early for my classes.. haha!

At the meeting, there was a guy there that has shown in the past that he seems to like me.. but he doesn't do anything. I do not get him! In a quick summary, he stared at me in class for one semester, we went on a trip (the one to Boston/East Coast), and now we are on the RHA Board.. and he never talks to me. *sigh*

Anyhow, today he looked at me.. made eye contact.. I waited for him to say something.. and he talks to the person next to me. W.T.H! I do not get it. If someone does.. PLEASE explain it to me.

On the same lines, I feel for those girls that were the popular girls in HS. I used to be envious of them .. but it kinda sucks to know someone likes you but never talks to you and takes ANY opportunity to get to know you. It's weird because we are alot alike and we could be something great.. but not if no one talks to me.

Anyhow with those two things, it kinda made me annoyed..

For the rest of the day, I will be sitting on a panel for HS students to ask me about college, break, awards ceremony, watch a friend's presentation, work than shopping! I am hoping shopping goes well, and won't be one of those days where everything doesn't fit right.. haha!

I hope you guys morning is going better than mine!

    Just reading your blogs on SP the past month or so you seem like the type of person that talks to EVERYONE - very friendly. I think you're going to have to be the first one to start a conversation. He's probably thinking, "she talks to everyone but me." Good luck with him.

Congrats on the 3 pounds! You're doing everything right!

    Just use the experience to practice casual flirting (nothing romantic...just fun loving). If he warms up a little more, great; if he still stops short, so what, you still had fun. Just remember, you are a work in progress and the better you look, the more doors will open for you on all fronts.
You are special and you deserve someone special too.

    Okay...he doesn't talk to you...do you talk to him? Make it a point of saying "HI". Walk out the meeting with him if you can. Ask him if you didn't have a class together....? Of coarse, you did, but play dumb....ask about his schedule...what is he taking....any classes he really like. YOU have to talk to him. He may be shy, too. If he is not interested or interesting, so be it...but try.

Congrats on the 3 pounds. Measure out three pounds of something and walk around and feel so proud of your amazing accomplishment. It just takes time....You are fabulous! Don't forget it~~~~ emoticon emoticon emoticon
