I have had a goal to fit into 8's by the New Year! I can fit into them.. but I won't be wearing them in public yet! LOL
NOT what I had hoped for but I am still happy about it!
What a month...... down 3 up 3 down 3 up 3... Last time I measured about 2 wks ago I was down a few inches but don't know if that is still true to today! TOM came to see me... and it would be just plain stupid to measure right now..... (right?!!!)
Here I am in some 8's a relative gave me last week.... Who knows if they are really an 8... she gave me 5 pairs and all 5 fit and I can wear them around the house... I won't be wearing them in public yet.... I think they are too tight!
My 10's are so loose after I wear them about an hour that my husband has asked me to get rid of them.... (IN HIS WORDS "THEY DON"T do a THING FOR YOUR BUTT" He likes my jeans to fit my butt LOL MEN!!! NEXT he will be saying I am showing my butt off to everyone.. coz he is funny that way... insecurity hits him and he says stupid things like that...
WE just hit 22 yrs of marriage on December 16th!
He loves that I have lost weight but he carries allot of baggage of insecurities and says hateful things still..... ( I JUST TRY TO IGNORE him...but sometimes he is like a black cloud and it wears me out)
I think I am getting a pretty good backbone since I have lost weight because... I have learned that you have to find your own happiness and you can't be responsible for someone else being happy or not!
Enough said on this subject..... it can be a downer if I think about it too long!
HERE is a pic taken yesterday in my 8's. My sister in law gave me this shirt and jeans. She gave me 5 jeans, 5 slacks all in 8's. She gave me 8 shirts/blouses all in Medium and 2 cute jackets in medium. She is losing weight too.... but she is only about 5'2" tall so even coming out of 8's she is still needing to lose weight since she is shorter. I am 5'6" tall.
I would give you a back view but they are a little too snug! LOL
Here are a few pictures of my new hair color and cut... when I fix it straighter in the front...
This is the back with my natural curl showing.
The above pic is a comparison from Last Decemeber to this December
The above pic is from Christmas Day last year to Christmas Eve this year
The above pic is me Christmas Eve in my 10's and med. shirt. MY 10 yr. old cut my head off! LOL
HERE is a pic I took of him right after he took this one of me... HE was posing like a model to make fun of me.... LOL BOYS!!!!!
This pic above is of my Grandson Jaezyn. He is 17 mos. old. I still have all his presents under my tree today... because my son decided to NOT come out on Christmas morning to celebrate with us... IT made me sick at first but I had to get it together for the other kiddos. My son likes drama and since his birthmom moved to our town a few mos. ago he has cut us out of his life. She left him when he was 14 mos old and never looked back. We never kept him from her.. she just chose to not be in his life. I can't change how he is acting towards us... although I hate it. I have 15 presents under the tree for my grandson though. Some of them are from family members on my side of the family that sent them to me to give to him.
My husband told me to quit moping around about it.... and forget it! Easier said than done!
I tried a white tree this year... I kinda like it.... it was cheap from Wally world... I still have 3 filled stockings too for my son and his family....
Sharing with you this pretty little glass bowl I found at a flea market! Pretty huh?
We had almost 30 people here on Dec. 18th for Christmas this year. My son and family didn't come to that either.... missed them.. but.....???? what do you do... but pray!
This pic is me in some of my 10's. They were straight out of the dryer... but still loose.
I think I have gotten so comfortable being slimmer than what I have been for years that I have just GOTTEN COMPLACENT!
I hit 169 about a week ago and stayed there until TOM showed.
169 put me at almost 53 lbs down. My highest weight was last yr at 221.8.
I measure my waist, baby belly, bra band, upper arms, thighs, hips and above knees and I have lost over 50 inches.
I was a 20 and now I am a loose 10 or tight 8...
I am still overweight... I still need to lose.
I have not strength trained for 2 weeks.
SO HERE are a few new MINI GOALS FOR the next 10 days.
ST each day working diff. body parts.
GET BACK ON MY EATING PLAN 100 percent and quit messing around.
DRINK my water every day... and quit farting around there too!
GET MY HEAD out of the clouds... and get WITH IT!
SO DO YOU HAVE some mini goals... IF NOT make some and do what it takes to meet them!
This pic is of my 19 yr. old that lives here at home and goes to our local college and of my grandson that I never get to see. We were at a relatives' house and my 24 yr old was there too so we got to see Jaezyn that day.
Here is my last pic.. of my Frenchie with her stuffed puppy! ISN'T she cute... she has now gone to her forever home.... (we raise bulldogs for those of you who didn't know... for over 13 yrs)
I love Baby PUPPIES..... I am always getting to spoil new babies... they are so sweet!
