Too tired to title

Saturday, September 20, 2008

I am having doubts about my little black dress! I tried it on tonight and I am just not feeling it! I look in the mirror and I see all of these flaws that I did not see yesterday! My ass looks HUGE, my hips got about 6" bigger, my stomach decided to come back. I can keep going...my shoulders look like Michael Phelps, when did they become so broad! So, I went and bought another one. A dress, A dress. Geez, do you actually think I could go and pick up a pair of shoulders.
I took DH with me to buy the first one and he picked the one he liked and I do like it too. I think I may have been more excited that it was a size that I liked more than the fit. But he loved it so that was enough for me! So, it makes sense that the dress I bought tonight is more of my taste. No bubbles, just baubles, no frill, just simple. Oh and did I mention it is a bigger size. Yup, I am not sure that i needed a bigger size, it is just what i felt comfortable in. I feel that in the other one you could see every bump & roll. Oh and don't think that I just looked at one mirror, no I looked at myself from EVERY MIRROR IN MY HOUSE!!! And I went as far as taking pictures of myself.
This time last year, I weighed 188. And now here I sit between 159-160 pounds. What is the big deal, it is a dress! It is a dress that I would not have dared worn last year. Fat Carol would have put on a dress and walked out of the house thinking that she looked like a million bucks!
This blog has taken me about an hour to get out. I am going to bed and I am going to wake up with a fresh attitude and things are going to be great!

Highlights of this week: I did cut my hair. Almost 7" I needed a change and my Tigresses talked me into. I am glad that they did!
And I did it, I signed up for my first 5K. It is paid for so there is no turning back now!
I am going to bed! Please forgive any spelling and/or grammatical errors that may occur in this blog. I am too tired to proofread and this took me too long to type to just delete it!

    You are doing so great !! And your back to running? When is your 5K? I am just getting back into running this week. I had the knee problem and then 4 weeks ago I changed shifts (from 2nd to 1st) and have a new job in the HR department. I am loving the new job and now that I've adjusted my sleep habits I intend on getting back into a good exercise routine. Take care and let me know how your running is going.

    I love your hair! I think cutting my hair was part of my transformation and I sure feel sexier in it now that I chopped it all off.

I think both dresses are super cute but always go with the one you feel the best in. If you didn't feel right about the first one then take it back! I bought a mini-skirt last week and I am debating taking it back b/c I can't think about where I would actually wear it. If one of my elementary students saw me wearing it I would be really self conscious.

Way to sign up for a race. It kept me going in the beginning knowing that I had a race and I didn't prepare myself for it that I would be disappointed.

    Congrats on another new dress. WOW they are really similar. I think they both look awesome. You have to wear whichever one YOU feel comfortable in. I learned a long time ago not matter how much other people say they like something, if I don't like it or feel comfortable in it, I won't wear it. I do like the new dress a little better because the little silver thingy shows off you waist more, but they are both beautiful dresses. I hope you have a great time. Try not to focus on all the flaws and concentrate on all the positives. Hugs, Kathy

    Can't tell from the pictures. Your face looks kind of glum in both dresses. I saw no evidence of hips or stomach in either dress. How about this? add in some strong undergarments, good makeup and a big smile, and I'll bet you'll look smashing in either one!

Your friend who feels dressed up in anything that's not jeans,

    I went and checked your pics and I LOVE your new dress! You look so good in it..just beautiful. You look good in the original one also but if you are like me...who wants to accent the hips and the original top stops right at the bottom of the hips. It is NOT you who does not make the dress look good..it is the dress that is not showing you off.

You had another picture that commented on your wrists (which do look so slender) . May I add....beautiful shiny hair, huge dark eyes, full lips....they all complement those wrists. You and your sweetie have a great time

I think you look AWESOME! Now, go get some much needed rest!
