Good Morning World!! Now let's take a nap....

This past week has been crazy work wise. Way too many hours that I am not used to. I am so tired.

I got a pedometer and I have really been working on the walking this week. This is a big deal in my world because I am the worlds worst exerciser!!

My tops are beginning to look too big. I have a great friend who will look at me and say *okay, that top is too big.* ~grins really big~ When she does that, I put it into the donate box. I decided to shop around for a few new ones yesterday. I KNEW not to! I was too tired but I did it anyway. I got disappointed to find that, if I go down a size then all my stupid around the middle fat shows and I hate that!! Immediately all the negative self talk started. I left and decided that I will just look again later.

I must say I was very pleasantly surprised to get on the scales today to see that I lost 2.4 LBS!! This coming week is going to be almost as bad time wise but the loss makes feel like I can face it. I went to the farmers market and the grocery store and I am getting ready for the week.




I am halfway to my goal weight!! I got out of the 180's! YEAH!!!!!

If you want to see my garage sale treasures from yesterday, you can check them out HERE.
.....I would happily be a fat donor....

  8. Mindy, way to go, I am so glad for you and that all of this is working well... I will go look at the garage sale items, and hey you know what, I took my very particular sis in law to a Goodwill store and she found blouses, so maybe try stores like that since you will be losing more and just donating them as they get too big!

    Have a good week
