vacationing without my bugg

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Tomorrow morning I fly out to Los Angeles and as I will be home by Thursday evening, I am deciding to leave my BodyBugg at home. Three days of unsupervised vacationing. I cannot afford to go crazy as I haven't loss any weight in the past week but I also want to enjoy my time away and trust in myself that i have came far enough to handle it. I hope that is the right decision and I dont regret it later.

In the process of packing, I was looking for my swimsuit cover-up. I remembered that I packed it away with all the other small summer clothes that i had bought the first time I lost weight two years ago. I told myself at the start of my journey this time around that i would fit those things by May 2013. I had a pair of goal jeans that I never got small enough to fit into. They were a pair of designer jeans in a 16 average. I figured if I spent a lot of money on them, it would give me motivation to stick with my plan. It didn't work. I could never get them fully up and never buttoned them. Today I wanted to see if I could get them on (sometimes the pricey stuff runs smaller too). They fit perfectly! My tush lookes nice in them and so do my thighs. They have a cute design on each pocket (none of my plus size jeans ever did). THey make me feel young. I will have to get some cute tops to wear with them.

Today was just a good day. I got to visit both of my sisters at work (I had the day off). I had an eye exam and picked out a cute pair of Oakleys - my little sister works at the eye clinic - and my cousin Brandy gave birth to a baby girl named Teagan. She was a tiny 5 lbs 6 oz but she has big feet like me so I love her even more! I had a good night at Red Lobster; even though it was really slow, I made a quick hundred bucks for my vacay. All in all, it was a great day and i am ready to vacation without the bugg. Have a great few days Sparkies!

    That's so cool that you are fitting in smaller clothes, and that you had a great day!

Congrats on your new baby cousin, what a blessing!

Enjoy your vacation, but when you get back, get right back to Sparking!

I went on vacation, overdid it and then never got back on track, so I learned my lesson- the hard way.

Best wishes!

    Have a great time and enjoy yourself during the trip! It's a good thing that you left your BodyBugg behind. It may help you test if you are making the right choices without it.

    That's great about your goal jeans! But since everyone is talking about rain... don't let your vacation mentality follow you back home and rain on your happy dance. Have fun and stay mindful.

    Way to go! Glad you go to put on those jeans! I know I've purchased dozens of clothes with the same intention. I need to stick to I know what works and I will fit into my goal clothes after a while.

    emoticon on the jeans fitting. Love it!!! After my Friday pants fitting I'm inclined to try another pair maybe today. I'm happy for you and I wish I was going to L.A. with you...that's where my boo is emoticon

I've had my bodybugg off for a few days now but I'm back at it. I hope you have a fantastic time on your vacay. Love the new baby with big feet congrats!!!

    WOOHOOO on those goal jeans fitting perfectly! Yeah, baby!

And yeah, plus-sized jeans never seem to have the cute details that the smaller jeans do - like the fancy embroidery on the back pockets, metal studs, bright-colored thread in the seams... plus-sized jeans (and underwear!) is just kind of... well... boring.

Hope you have an awesome time on vacation!!!

Congrats on the new baby cousin!!!
