  • Weird question, please don't laugh

    9/12/2014 1:24:44 PM, by BEAUTY_WITHIN

    I'm planning on going to lunch with my cousin in about an hour. I've had breakfast, and I'm out shopping. And I HAVE to eat. I've got a headache , my tummy hurts, generally just feeling yuck. So I'm eating. Problem is, I feel bad about it. Like I shouldn’t be eating because I'm planning on ea... Read more

  • My style is changing

    9/10/2014 2:53:52 PM, by BEAUTY_WITHIN

    A few weeks ago, I posted pictures about an outfit that actually bared my midriff (gasp!). Today, I pulled out an old shirt that buttons, but gaps a little over my breasts. So instead of getting angry and frustrated like I normally would, I pulled out a tank top, put it underneath, then tied the s... Read more

  • So far so good!

    9/5/2014 1:44:37 PM, by BEAUTY_WITHIN

    So I washed my shoes as per an article they found. So far so good. They came out NOT smelly, and they didn't fall apart. They are currently drying. I didn't want to risk the dryer, tho that article claimed I could dry them. Better safe than sorry. I'd rather not be able to wear them a few days... Read more

  • Vent

    9/4/2014 3:26:53 PM, by BEAUTY_WITHIN

    I am SO frustrated, angry, and annoyed! My cat peed in my new running shoes!!! They are completely ruined. And they reek to high heaven. Of course it's the ONLY thing he peed on. He couldn't have gone on like, my $5 flipflops. Oh no, it had to be my $60 running shoes. I can't r... Read more

  • SO self-conscious today!

    9/2/2014 3:19:47 PM, by BEAUTY_WITHIN

    I'm am feeling so self-conscious today. I'm dressing a bit outside of my comfort zone. I was shopping yesterday, and I got some cute shorts as a gift from my aunt (they're just a hair too big, maybe half a size or so), a midriff top that I really like (!) and some chunky heeled clogs. My husband ... Read more

  • weekend at mom's

    8/31/2014 10:31:16 PM, by BEAUTY_WITHIN

    It's been a good weekend. We're going home tomorrow night. Once again she actually had something for me to have for lunch, and made a healthy dinner. I was even brave enough to go for a run after supper. I ran a mile of interval training. With HILLS!! I forgot there were bunny hills here. They... Read more

    8/27/2014 10:08:19 PM, by BEAUTY_WITHIN

    My parents - my mom and my step dad - have been divorced since I was 15. Since then, I've had contact with my stepbrother, and only rarely my stepdad. It's been hard. I was "friends" with my stepdad on Facebook - till last night. Long story very short, my dad is very conservative, and I'm not. ... Read more

  • Down by 2!

    8/26/2014 3:56:33 PM, by BEAUTY_WITHIN

    I'm down by 2 lbs! And a weird NSV - I noticed my shoulder area (?) looks trimmer....not 100% HOW it looked different, but it did. Maybe it was a little more muscle. Have you ever had that? You know something looks better & different, but you can't put your finger on what's changed? That was l... Read more

  • I FINALLY got to run!

    8/26/2014 1:14:27 AM, by BEAUTY_WITHIN

    It was finally cool enough for me to run today. I haven't been doing the couch to 5K challenge, but that's ok. There's a street by the house that's about a half mile stretch with a good hill. I've been using that as my training ground right now. It's a block away from the house, and a block away... Read more

  • Here we go again...

    8/25/2014 11:34:32 AM, by CINDY21011

    Finally, I am at the point where I have to lose this extra poundage! I see my reflection in a store window or a mirror and I can't believe that it has come to this. My hubby is up to over 300 pounds and we have made to decision to get healthy and lose weight together. My neighbor has decided ... Read more
