Going Shopping...

I went out shopping for a little bit yesterday afternoon. One of my main reasons was to get another pair of jeans...with the weather cooling down 1 pair wasn't going to cut it and the pair I have I love since they are really comfortable but they are on the long side and only look good with heels. So we headed out to the Tanger Outlets and to the American Eagle store. It's such a different experience to shop for clothing now then it was a year ago. I know my body type so I stayed away from the skinny jeans and hit up the boot cut and hipsters. I didn't see the boyfriend cut right away but I knew that they fit since I had tried them on about a month and half ago. I do have to say that it's still a bit shocking to have to not struggle to get the jeans up over my calves, hips and buttoned/zipped at the waist. I like the way that the boot cut looked more than the hipsters (which were a bit longer in the leg) so I held onto them until right before I left I found the boyfriend cut and grabbed those instead, the were cheaper, lol. I also tried on a couple of shirts in a Medium and was a bit hesitant since the last time I tried on a Medium there they were a bit small. I really like the first on I tried on but really didn't want to buy another shirt in that style, I'm wanting to expand what I wear on a regular basis. The sweater fit but I didn't like how it looked on me, but still its a great feeling to know that I can walk into almost any store and find something that will fit and look good on me. My next shopping trip is going to be for shoes and I'm hoping to do that this week too and maybe a couple more shirts/sweaters, plus I'm going to need a jacket/coat since winter is right around the corner. And you can ask my husband I have always hated to shop especially at the mall since I would walk by so many stores knowing that I couldn't fit into anything in there and it was really bad when I would go with him in Hollister or Abercrombie & Finch and see all the cute clothes while he shopped and just feel so completely out of place in there....but not anymore, lol. Though you still won't see me shopping at either one of those stores since they seem to love their clothing so much, totally out of my price range, but I'm looking forward to getting back to NY & Co. and a few other stores, :)

Enough of my to do some homework that I have put off for way too long!!!

That Ugly Fat Girl?

So I was taking a look at my past blogs the other day and I came across the blog I wrote back in April that showed my weight loss journey in pictures. And all I can say is OMG! That starting picture is so freaking horrendous. I can't believe that I actually thought I looked pretty weighing that much. I can't believe that my husband actually found me attractive then. And I can honestly say that I was not one of the pretty fat girls...I was just plain fat and ugly. Its funny what lies one's self will tell them to help them feel good about themselves. I look at myself then and then I look at myself now and can't even comprehend that they are the same person. I feel like I'm a completely different person now. I AM a completely different person now. 

But every once in a while I still look at myself I still see a fat, overweight, ugly person. Like today, I know I had just rocked it on the treadmill doing sprint intervals (definitely going to add that to my workout plan mo…

2014 Update

It's been a while since I wrote a blog...almost a year in fact...

I have struggled so much with my weight over the last couple of years. I went from about 145 lbs up to 200 lbs. I'm back down in the 190's but so upset since I was so happy when I was in the 140s. I need to tighten my belt, for lack of better words, and get back to watching my diet and really and truly get back to counting calories since I know that works for me. 

What really is heart breaking for me is going up in size in clothing. I went from wearing a size 8 to a 14, now back down to 12. I hate buying new clothes when I ones I love just sitting in my closet now being worn.

The good thing this all is that I truly never gave up working out. I might have not been doing it at the intensity that I was in the past but that has change about 5 months ago. Five months ago I found CrossFit and fell in love. I have found through this program that it is very humbling and empowering. I have done more things that I have n…
