Hey Pretty Ladies!

I feel like this post is going to be all over the place, I have so many things going through my head right now. Following in Drazil's footsteps I think I will do this post in a list format so that I make sure and cover everything :)

Chicago: So I haven't posted much about this trip, because honestly I have been so upset about it. I can't tell you have many times I have broken down to tears thinking about it. The problem is, my best friend is getting married on the 25th of September and I am in her wedding. If it wasn't for that I hope you all know I would be there in a heartbeat. I know there will be plenty of other get togethers, but I can't help but have a pity party and stomp my feet. I want to be there so badly. Ok, enough!

Weight: Last Thursday (on my birthday) I finally hit 188, 60lbs down. Well that was short lived! I think it lasted about a half hour before I decided to eat anything and everything I wanted. All of this week I was up to 193, and not doing much to help it. Finally yesterday the mystery restriction reappeared, and this morning I was back to 189! Praise the lord!

Challenge: Tomorrow Week 4 results are due! I really hope we hit our goal of 30lbs down for the week! I have high expectations, and have a feeling we blew this goal through the roof!

Shopping: Rick's cousin is getting married next month and I was in need of an outfit for the rehearsal dinner. I've noticed that as I continue to lose weight I have a hard time reusing my outfits and constantly want to buy new ones for every reason possible. Well today I had fantastic luck at Ann Taylor Loft. I went in and decided to try on this cute little dress, it was a no go! I asked the sales woman to help me zip it, and she couldn't even get it close (it was a 14) She told me not to worry and she could find plenty of other things that would work. She asked me if I wanted her to be my personal shopper....I said sure why not? Minutes later she comes back with 3 different complete outfits, and by complete I mean bottoms, tops, AND accessories! There were 2 skirt ensembles, and 1 with jeans. She grabbed a 14 and a 12 in the skirts, I obviously went for the 14 first, seeing how the 14 dress didn't just fit. I came out in it, and she said no way its too big on you! AHHHHH! So I tried the 12 on, and it fit! YIPPPEEE! I ended up buying 1 skirt, 1 pair of jeans, 1 cotton shirt, 2 tank tops, 2 cardigans and a necklace! I would say an overall SUCCESS! Now the problem is did I have money for all of this? Of course not...but that's a story for another day.


  1. *hugs* about Chicago. I'm still not 100% that I'm going, and it is hard to think of everyone having such a fun time and not being a part of it. But at least you get to be a part of something awesome! And total shopping NSV!! Yay you!

  2. Yipee!!! I would have bought them too - and worn the tag on the outside ;-)

  3. Oh how I dream of wearing a 12!! YAY!!

    I'm sorry you can't make it to Chicago :( Maybe it's fate. Maybe if you came you would be struck by lightning or something terrible.

  4. I'm not going to Chicago either. I'm insanely jealous of everyone who is though. It's going to be a blast.

    What an awesome shopping story! 12!! Yahoo!!

  5. Yay for you and the shopping fun!! I know it must be hard not to be in chicago..... at least we'll be getting together soon!

  6. Oh....Kristen - we are going to miss you. I'm sorry you've been upset about it. I hate the thought of you crying over it. :(

    On a happier note...HOLY mother of tiny got a 12!!! I'm so happy for you! That is tiiiiiny!! That's my goal size. Way to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
