I got up in time!!

I got up in time to head to Weight Watchers this morning – which in hindsight isn’t that difficult, but when you get home around 3:15 and then your boyfriend decides to keep you awake so you only have maybe 4 hours of sleep, it was challenging.

But I knew that if I went I could be back on track.

And that’s the case. It was great seeing everyone since it’s been a couple of weeks, it puts me back on track. Which is what I feel like I needed anyways.

It’s honestly a great experience to go back to a community that you haven’t taken part in in awhile, and I gained 3.8 pounds, but considering that it could be so much higher, I’m not terribly upset.

I think it will motivate me to become better this coming week, especially with my Lent Goals that I will be starting at the beginning of next month.

I can’t believe that it’s coming up, in all honesty.

Thanks!

WW Update

I actually missed the last two weeks 😦

But I managed to only gain a pound.

The first week, I was really sick, and I wanted to go in anyways, but I figured that it just wasn’t worth the hassle, and it would be super terrible if I got everyone sick. Not only would I feel guilty, but I would feel terrible if I got anyone else sick.

Last week, I got up on time, but I had a doctor’s appointment that ran way too late so I missed it because of that.

On top of it all, I’ve been busy beyond what I thought because of life and everything else. That, and when you work the other times they are open in my area, it is almost impossible for me to go that way anyways. The amount of time to get to the point where I need to be, but then be back in my town (not trying to reveal who I am completely hehe) means that everyone else needs to be off the roads.

So let’s hope that I make it to Tuesday’s meeting.

Happy New Year!

Sorry for lack of posting! But between the week before Christmas, and New Years I’ve been so busy.

As you may have known, I went home for some time before Christmas which was unexpected, but it was good to be home. But while I was home, I got really sick.

To the point where I missed my original flight home and I stayed for an extra couple days just to get to the point where I could actually walk around and function.

I got home (to Oklahoma) and I had to deal with some stressful situations, and after just relaxing for a bit (and getting a cold, which has been terrible after the stomach bug that I had) I started prepping for the new year.

So mostly, I want to fill this blog in on what happened, so I set some time over tomorrow to blog about some things and then set them up over time.

I just wanted to apologize to everyone if they were wondering what happened.

Also, in the last 2 weeks, I’ve lost a total of 13 pounds, so I’m excited about that.

And I’ve been keeping it off, as well.

So,

Happy New Year everyone (I am aware it’s tomorrow) and I hope to be posting more and more!

First Progress

So my first weigh-in at my local WW meeting was Tuesday, and it was really exciting for me!

I lost 6.2 pounds for my first weigh-in.

The day itself went really well, except that I woke up with a split lip, and I felt like it disfigured my face for awhile. It turns out, instead of panicking over something and trying your absolute hardest to make it go away, it’s better if you just let things run it’s full course.

Nevertheless, I’m really happy with my weight loss, because if anything, I think that it showed me that if I mentally commit to anything, I can just try.

Which is what I learned that week, that while it was a pain for me to get up every day and work out, I still did it. I tried hard, and while I did slip up a bit at the end, at least I got up and faced the day, which is what I wanted to see if I could do.

And I can.

Because I can do anything if I set my mind towards it, and if that doesn’t encourage you to try, than I don’t know how else to help. Trying means that you’re working towards it.

Thanks,

Kay.

“Fat”

All my life, I’ve been “overweight”.

As in, I consistently remember people telling me that I need to lose weight, so I could fit into cute clothing, or whatever. This came from my family, my friends, and even when I was younger (back when I was in a teen “in love”) I was pretty much shamed for my weight.

Depressing, right?

Yes, I’m considered plus sized, and I hate thinking that you know that people would just like me so much more if I was thinner. I will admit, I’ve thought about it enough, that even if I had a penny I would have some serious cash saved away. (That would be really nice to have though, in all seriousness)

Well,

I have recently been shopping at Lovesick as I may have mentioned in my Halloween post, which is Torrid‘s sister store-kind of. Honestly, I’m in love.

I’ve bought about 3 outfits from them, for about $50 a piece (for the outfit). Which in terms of plus sized clothing, is relatively cheap. At least, in my opinion. I love Torrid, don’t get me wrong, but my heart cries when I look at the price tag.

I also shop at Maurices, but they kind of always have a theme going on that is not what I’m looking for, so it’s hard for me to find clothing that I always want there. However, the jeggings at Maurices are very nice, and very comfortable. 10/10, will definitely purchase again.

Anyways,

I’m thankful to stores like Torrid, Lovesick, and Maurices because they actually have good quality plus sized clothing that is not stretched out that should be on something for someone who is “normal” sized clothing.

Take Forever21 for instance, love their clothing, but unless you buy it 2-3 sizes up, it WILL shrink to something super tiny, and then I wonder what and who I have wronged in my life. (I would like to state here, that I do follow what the tag says on my clothing, but either the shirt deteriorates because of the cheapness or it shrinks) Also, I love Rue21, but really only the joggers, leggings, and sweatpants are working for me. (Are those two owned by the same company? I just realized they have the same number in them, wow I’m slow)

Another clothing store that I love shopping at is Yoursclothing which is based in the UK, and it’s around $5 for shipping to the US, and it should get here in 5-8 business days. Which, I think is pretty quick, considering that if I order off Zulily I will be waiting anywhere from 2-4 weeks, which I do realize when I’m ordering, but I want things.

So,

I am thankful that there are cuter clothing for plus sized women/girls out in the world now, and it’s not just shameful old lady clothes. I am glad that people are realizing that not everyone is a Popsicle stick (but if you are, then wear the cutest clothes you can because I am rooting for you).

Sorry if this post was depressing or upsetting, but I’m tired of having clothing that I used to be so ashamed of wearing. But now, I feel like I can be cute, and I can look good. Regardless of what size I am.

Thanks,

Kay
