Just saw a picture of myself from about a year ago. All I can say is UGH. I will never let myself look like that again. :-( Not sure how I ever let myself get to that point but.. it won't happen again.

We went to see our friends Ailene, Jimmy, and Jason. When we got to their house, she couldn't stop telling me how great I look. Her Mom (who knows me) Skyped her while we were there so she could see the boys. She also couldn't stop telling me how great I looked. It's nice to hear how much it's paying off. While there, Ailene kept mentioning how much she wanted to lose weight. Of course, she wants it to come off the easy way. Unfortunately, it doesn't work like that. I wish I could get it through her head so she'd stop wasting money on shakes and teas and coffees that are designed to "help lose weight fast." Too bad she doesn't understand it won't be a permanent thing.

Anyway, I think we're off to the Y for a work out and then maybe to the splash pad. It's looking beautiful out there! Have a great day everyone!

New clothes..

I went clothes shopping the other day for the first time in forever. Losing weight is causing me to have clothes that no longer fit. The ones I have are falling off (woo hoo!) so I knew I'd have to go buy new ones eventually. Anyway, I stopped at Old Navy (one of my favorites) to see what they had. For the longest time I couldn't buy pants or anything in store because they stopped carrying plus size beyond a size 20. The shirts and stuff were fine, just not the pants. I'm super excited I can now fit into the pants in store!!!! It's still kind of a tight fit, but I can button them and zip them, LOL. also, I ended up buying a swim suit. It's the first suit I've ever bought from them (in store or online). It's cute, flattering, and best yet-it's a smaller size! I also ended up buying a skirt. I've never bought a skirt from them ever so to even buy one, let alone an XL, is awesome to me!

How cute is that suit? I mean seriously! They're on sale for $20 so I was thinking about buying another one. I don't necessarily need another one, but it's so cute. We also swim ALL THE TIME so I feel like it'd be worth it in the long run.

I guess basically this boils down to.. NEW CLOTHES, SMALLER SIZES, LOSING WEIGHT!
