A Good Problem To Have....Maybe

Saturday, August 24, 2013

I'm down past (barely) my goal. So on to a new 10lbs....wonder how long this one will take emoticon .

Last Sunday my boyfriend bought himself a fitbit. I'd been looking at them for a while so when he told me he bought one I finally took the plunge. I knew competing with him would be good motivation for me. Why I thought this I don't know. One of his jobs is very sedentary - sitting at a desk for 8 hours a day with not much of an opportunity to get up - I figured no prob I'd have him. For some odd reason it never occurred to me that at his other job - he'd quite honestly kick my butt!! I was doing well...pretty proud of myself. Look at his stats for Thursday - 36 floors climbed....whhhaaaaaaa. Called him.....what did you do put your fitbit on a rocket???? Explain???
See, he's a firefighter....one stinking fire in a highrise (and not even much of one at that) - How on earth did I miss this!!! And to add insult to injury he went to an amusement part on Friday and got his 15000 badge as well. How will I ever catch up...at least I'll get a workout trying!

That isn't even what the title refers to - my clothes are starting to get too big. I like my clothes...I actually liked how they fit me - or did. I feel like they look ridiculous on me. I'm certain they don't. I am having a hard time culling some from the herd since they're good friends. I don't have cash laying around to buy something fabulous so that's not the answer. I never thought that this would be a problem...yes I'm happy but a bit sad in a bit. My go to feel good outfits are beginning to resemble muumuu

    I have the whole next size waiting for me but not many of what I am in now but I refuse to buy bigger clothes when I am going to go out of them soon. Can't wait to be in the next size I have 10 pairs of jeans yeah. I only have 2 pair now but it seems forever for me to get there.It will be nice to hit gosl weight and be done and buy a new wardrobe and be done with it.

    Im shopping at thrifts stores for my clothes until I get to my goal. There is no point in spending money on clothes you are going to only wear for a few months before out growing them or is it undergrowing them? But anyway way to go!! emoticon emoticon

    I really hate that...i mean I LOVE when the weight comes off but I hate the in-between phase before new clothes would fit and the old ones really don't anymore. I can't afford to buy new clothes right now either..have 4 kids I have to get school clothes for, so I'm wearing hubbys t-shirts and shopping at the thrift stores. Check garage sales. Heck check online. Anything is better than being afraid to go out because your clothes don't fit.
