Calorie free therapy

Thanks for all the supportive comments yesterday lovers. NOT!!!  That's ok though.  I still love ya because you came back to read my drivel again today.  :)

I tried to do a last minute day trip today that didn't pan out. I also worked 4 hours on what should have been my Saturday off. I was *over* the day and still feeling blue about yesterday. I reached out to a friend through text and told her how I was feeling upset and frustrated. She asked me what was wrong and it hit me like a  frying pan to the back of the head. (frying pans... who knew right?  name that movie)  I was still feeling the leftovers from yesterday and I didn't know how to deal with them... I was struggling with them so much because I was making a effort NOT to eat my feelings away.  Holy shit! I didn't even know I was doing it. Yeah me! :)

I decided on a little calorie free retail therapy to soothe my soul.  I have been getting really frustrated with my pants selection lately. (But I REFUSE to buy more 18's when I have many pairs already that don't quite fit)  The only jeans I have that fit are that pair of RL that are heavy weight jeans material and the L4 jeans I got at the thrift. (One of the 14s were actually L4? sized men's jeans) They fit but are baggy and I am getting tired of the sag. I grabbed a pair of 18's that didn't fit 2 weeks ago and decided what the heck let me try again. Imagine my surprise when I realized if I sucked in a tad I could button them AND zip. YEAH! So I finally have some form fitting jeans. I had hubby snap a picture before we went into town. Of course while the picture looks a hella a lot better than the baggies I have been wearing I see a problem. My hamstrings have a layer of fat!! Ugh, I mean yeah I know about my rolls and gut but I knew not of that.


My nails actually look some what decent for once so I decided nail polish for the retail therapy. Karen posted a picture of her tootsies in a tardis blue on FB and I liked it. Hubby loves that show so I figured I would get a blue like that. We met with my brother in town for dinner and then hit ULTA. I ended up with 5 polishes from there and then another on clearance from Target later. So many shades of blue to choose from but we settled on one. Then a few others were chosen based on color coolness with us all.
5 bottom ULTA  Target for top one.

So while I have gained those pants now fit so I really can't be to bummed about that. :)  Off to hit the hay as we have water park plans again tomorrow.

 I hope you discovered something today that made you feel better about your weight loss efforts!


  1. I love you, and you are looking gorgeous <3

    Fuck the scale, you are rocking this!

  2. HA! We may not get you to be an actual fan but at least your nails will look the part ♡♡

  3. I love retail therapy!! I have to be careful not to get addicted to shopping like I was to food though haha

  4. Love your comment about eating your feelings. I've been wondering why I've been so irritable lately. A light bulb just went off for me. Thank-you for this!

    Also, retail therapy is great, especially with new toes! :)

  5. Keep your food choices clean. 100% of the time. Otherwise the slippery slope thinking will take you in all sorts of directions. Hang in there and glad you are wearing clothes that fit. Even if it's 1 pair. Stuffing yourself into small clothes - no es bueno! It's another form of slippery slope- IMO.

    Onward. Keep the food choices dialed in and the weight will come off!

  6. I just came across your blog. Love it! Keep doing what you're doing and forget the numbers!

  7. Just found your blog!
