Well I got home from a super long night at work, the restaurant that I serve at is kind of buffet style and we had a special for Memorial Day, 10.99 all you can eat, so we were super busy, so busy that it took us almost 2 hours to close!! So when I came home I, being the blog addict I am, I hopped on the computer. I had found a new bog it called confessions of a + sized girl, Monica is a non bander and fighting the good fight http://getpastthemoment.blogspot.com/ , but anyway I wrote a little comment of encouragement, and her comment back to me telling me how much she appreciated it really made me feel good. That is what we are here for, to support eachother and push each other so I feel so proud that I can be part of it an the giving side, seeing as I am on the recieving side so much!

As I began to relax after work, and while I watched My Sister's Keeper and bawled my effing eyes out, I downloaded some photos of my Target purchases from last week. I even took a picture of my shorts, which are still not wearable for public, and now that I look at the pics of it I don't know if they ever will be, my thighs are super cottage cheesey - no good. I would just like to say that this is me being very brave, I do not wear shorts and I do not like people seeing my legs, my lower body is definately my trouble area, I have thick thighs and as much as I know at least for now that is my reality, I don't want to flaunt it so no body gets to see my sausage link thighs - until today.


This dress is a medium! The fact that I can fit into a medium dress makes it worthy of me buying it, but when it is cute too, well I had to have it! I think it was like 24.95 too! Ohh and this dress was the one that a girl complemented me on today, well now it would be yesterday






This is the dress I bought for my cousins wedding next saturday, I love the green with my new red hair. Its a size 16 so its a little big, but I don't think it looks too big. Also this means that shortly I can put it on the travelling pants line!




This is the same dress as the green one above but it is a 14 and its black with colorful speckles. I love it so much, I wore it on Thursday night and Saturday night downtown. The first picture is my favorite one of all the pictures I took today, I don't know why I just think its pretty and kind of artistic. The second one has a bit of a story to it. So as I have said in many blogs, as I am shrinking, my butt is not, I don't get it, but the fat on my dairy aire is holdin on strong! So Saturday night as we were walking back to the car in the parking garage and there was a group of guys in a car and what do I hear but, look at that big booty, gee thanks, I know I should be like ahh haaaahhh, and utilize my ass-ets, but I feel awkward, so this second picture is a visual of my ample humps!



I love this style dress, I think they are super cute and curve conscious! This one is a medium too :)

And drumroll please ...... the shorts




I am pretty close to these being public wearable, but I need to get rid of the spare tire effect these shorts create and y'all see the curdiness of my thighs, but I am not sure if even when I feel like these shorts fit, that my thighs won't still be celluliscious :S but I am going to be optimistic!!!!!


SO there ya have my new purchases, I love every single one. And I thought that I would leave you wonderful ladies with some face shots, its incredible to look at some of them, because I don't even look like myself in some of them - I always wondered what I would look like thin, I am now seeing that skinny bitch peek through!!!!!! woot woot

Pretty pretty girl! I don't see what you do with your thighs, but we can really be our harshest critics. Lots of love!

Such cute dresses!!!

Monica said...

Thanks for the shout out! "My Sisters Keeper" continues to be the one movie that makes me cry. The desperation that her mom shows to keep her daughter alive is so sweet.

I cant believe that you are over 200! I did not look that good at UNDER 200! What the deuce?

So now that you look good, is your goal basically to just be healthy now?

I really want to weight 160, but that will be really thin for me so I'm just trying to enjoy where I am and hope that little by little the weight will come off - I need alot of toning although you may not notice it!

I love all the dresses and the green one looks great on you! And those shorts DO NOT look bad. Your legs don't look perfect but they don't sound as awful as you make them sound. You probably have the same thing going on mentally that I do, you THINK they look like they used to. you should sit around the house and takes pics of your thighs and legs until you see them how everyone else does. B/c I think your thighs look good!!! I'm trying to learn to love my thighs as well, it's hard work!!!
