Hobo Shopping

I went shopping with my friend Charlee yesterday.

We went to the classiest of joints, so of course, we started at Ross Dress For Less...

I looked in the mirror and I looked unmistakably like a transient.  By the way, I am a very good looking transient.

I found out, surprisingly, that sequined jumpsuits may not be the best choice for the plump American woman... disappointing.

We were trying to find fabulous dresses for Charlee's Birthday Extravaganza this weekend...alas....this is what I found:

Pants of My Future

I love the pants.  I am losing weight just to wear pants like these...a goiter belly really cant pull them off.  Only problem:  I am sure I will immediately start bleeding as soon as I put these on.

Not Just Big Boned

So, I have been on a diet for about a month now.  I started right before news years.  It is a new years resolution thing, but I started early so I would gorge myself and give myself ten extra pounds to lose.

I have lost a little over 7 pounds.  I feel good.  Dont worry, I am not going to disgust you with what I ate....maybe with descriptions of my shits, but this is not about that.  For the first time in my life, I can see myself actually losing weight.  It isnt just an effort made while really believing, or knowing that the first time I see cheesecake, I am going to eat it.... and not just a slice...I am going to eat the whole damn thing. 

So, if anyone else is dieting, hit me up.. I am on use the mobile app.

I think the positive outlook has come from finally being realistic with myself.  I cannot just tell myself I am big boned.  I am fat.  I may not be grossly O-Beast....I may be healthy, but I am getting older and the fat will catch up to me.  This conversation with myself was not negative..I believe in myself and I know I am a beautiful human being. 

The conversation was realistic.

There are certain things I want in life.  In order to achieve some of those, I need to present myself in the best ways possible.  I need to be fit and healthy.  While I am healthy and strong now... I need to not look like a jelly donut...although I do love jelly donuts!
