Shopping trip!! (pics)

Saturday, January 26, 2013

Well, it all started with "oh crap, my $10 rewards card for DSW is going to expire tomorrow, I HAVE to go shoe shopping. Now normally shoe shopping is a reward for losing weight and I haven't hit my next reward shopping trip (the 130s) yet, but I had to go, even if I didn't need shoes! So I went up the clearance section and fell in love. KNEE HIGH BOOTS! AHH! AND THEY FIT!!! You see, most people say that they love shoes because they fit regardless of your size, but that isn't true with boots. I've NEVER been able to wear boots, regardless, never KNEE HIGH boots! That means that they'd have to be able to fit all of my calf - and they did!! So of course, I can't have knee high boots with jeans that don't fit properly in them (ie, they have to be skinny jeans). So what did I do? Go to the store and by skinny jeans. But not just ONE pair, TWO pairs! OMG, I'm in LOVE!!

So that's it! I'm so excited!! The blue ones I could even wear without the boots because they're SLIGHTLY flared, so I'm comfortable wearing them. But the red ones? I dunno... but they're HOT with the boots and PERFECT for hockey games! I feel great.

And here is my BLC21 start pic:

With my grandfather in Florida :)

Overall, the weight is slowly coming off and today, I was in at 144.4, so I'm terribly close the 130s AND losing 90 lbs (which would be 142). I'll get there soon!!

    I totally agree that it is soo not true that "shoes always fit"! I found that when I in the 160s that my feet were more *swollen* and my ankles were even a little thicker. I ended up giving away some shoes when I gained b/c they started to hurt so bad. Congrats on buying your knee highs! =)
