Well today was not a good day, up 0.2 pounds. I knew this week wasn’t going to be good; I did not exercise as I should have. Geez, this is not going like I was hoping; make a plan, let everyone know your plan, make some pretty big changes, and lose 30 pounds. Sounded easy peasy. Yes I probably could cut the beer and wine, eat romaine lettuce daily, or drink a “shake” for breakfast and lunch, and lose my great sense of humor also. I may have to try to get taller instead. However; this is real life, especially for women. I swear roomie can decide he wants to drop a few pounds, cut out two pieces of bread and lose ten pounds in a week. I pretty much know it’s the lack of exercise which will have to be intensified next week. I will say that since I have gave up all soda, diet coke, and most processed foods, I do feel better and I have lost a lot of inches. So there has been wins.
Does anyone else hate clothes shopping? I have always hated it and I feel as though that is unnatural for a female. Nothing every fits, even if it is the same brand and size you have on, the clothes are hideous, and the prices are ridiculous. I like a deal like anyone else, but if they are too cheap, they look like you have worn them for years after the first wash. I have always thought if I ever had any control over women’s clothes, I would make the cut a size 14 and label it a size 10. Since they are already cutting the sizes smaller, why not cut them larger? Any woman who usually buys a size 14 and can buy a labeled size 10, even though she knows she is still at size 14. We would be all over that folks. Is that so terribly hard?
