NSV? Who knows anymore...

Thursday, April 25, 2013

Well, I had to interview at my job this week for a FTE position. (I'm a contractor) and that means pulling out my interview attire. I am really old school (according to the infants I work with) because I am a firm believer that you go to an interview, you wear a suit, male or female. I hate when women, especially, show up in a skirt and top, sometimes more sunday school or spring picnic to a little too clubby, for an interview. An immediate 10 point demerit for not taking me and the position seriously.

I work in a lab and I kind of hate my thick stubby legs, so I usually wear pant suits. I have no problem with a skirt suit. Hell, I'll even accept a coordinated skirt/pants and jacket. But at least something that resembled a bloody suit. But I am so off subject with that rant. I'll note one last thing, the other contractors that I work with that are interviewing for the same position, all wore suits...HA HA HA. Even the babes that said it was old fashioned.

But I pulled out the awesome suit my BF bought me back when I first interviewed for this position a little over a year ago. I bought it a little snug. If I hadn't regained the 5-7 pounds I have been fighting over the last 6 months, the pants would have been way too big. They required a belt as I am now. This led to closet diving/ fashion show.

My beloved red suit is not wearable. It's a size 12. I love it. I sad, but I NEVER want to fit into it again. But I knew that last year, hence the new suit then. The current suit is a 6 from the Limited. There are so many things I've held onto that I can wear again. There is this gorgeous red mini dress that my mom made back in the 70's I have that I LOVE! I stole it back in high school and will NEVER give it back. It's loose.

I am trying to get excited and motivated. Can you tell? Yes you can call me a skinny b, if you want. I mean a size 6 is loose. I know. I know, but there is a little more I want gone. It's what I see in the mirror, the pooch and inner thigh saddle bags that I really want to go. Begone. HA!

I remember wearing that red suit to my Aunt's wedding. It was tight and now I drown in it. I look at all that extra fabric and I am amazed. I didn't understand that I was that big or am I that small now?

The scale is staying under 140 for the last few weeks. I want the number to get to under 135, then under 130, but that is just beyond me right now. I need to jog/workout regularly to get there. Also the tub of Easter candy isn't helping. I hid it this morning. Out of sight, out of mouth right?

I am working on the Lightning sunglasses and the last bit of the pauldroon 2.0. I'm not up to sewing yet. My brain isn't there. I do need to get the freaking crown and mask done. I can't find the bloody beads I want anywhere. I am going to go google bead stores.

Oh, yeah, SOUTHERN WOMEN'S SHOW tomorrow with my friend Heather! YAY! Maybe I can find beads there, or a big aqua cabochon for the center stone.

    I would consider it an NSV! At this point, take what you can get, right? lol It seems so hard to stay on track lately. It's great that even with your own struggles, you're still pulling things out of the closet that are too big!

    Please post some progress pics if you feel like it. I'd love to see how the costume stuff is going!
