Shop Shop Shopping

I have the night home... hubby is out and my mum is out and the kids are in bed.....

But the biggest loser is on and that is why everyone tonight is soooooo quiet.

I have been trying really hard this week to drink my water and not be a wuss.... and I have succeeded so far. I want to lose between 300 grams and 500 grams this week. I can't realistically ask for more as I just don't do it. So if I keep it going like that then I am going to get down.

Looking at the biggest loser... makes me re-evaluate things. I have lost 74 pounds... now when you look at your weight in pounds it makes you feel sooooo good. Some of them only lost around the 50's and 60 pounds and I have lost 74 pounds so I am proud of myself....

Today was a great day...

Spent the morning helping in Quinn's class doing the class spelling and that was fun. I enjoyed that. Got home and spent time with mum and then we went in to Farmers to meet my friend Marina (Corbin's friend Dion's mum and one of the ladies I go to coffee with) and we went shopping.... there was a Farmers card sale (30% off) and hubby said since Tuesday was a nightmare for me with clothes and pants that I can wear to work (which is casual dress by the way) that I could go and buy one item of clothing.

Yep you guessed it... what woman can stop at just one huh he he he...

I brought 4 things he he he 2 pants and 2 tops... and the pants were jeans and they made me look soooo much thinner.... one black and one blue and one black top and one red and it felt great.

I wanted to buy some black pants that were there and I automatically went and got the size 26 thinking that is the size but keep forgetting I don't have to get the biggest size on the rack anymore. So I tried the 24 because that is what I am wearing now (I thought) nope I got in to a size 22 in black dressy pants OMG... I didn't buy them but I was sooo proud that I could get in to a size 22.

With the jeans I brought size 24's but could get in to 22 and they zipped up but I don't think I would have been that comfortable in them as I really honestly don't like things too fitting even though my friend Marina said that I could wear them no trouble I still had to be comfortable and I have to be comfortable now at the moment because of all my clothes not fitting and I am getting angry about it.

It made me sooo happy to fit in to the size 22 even so and I was on such a high that I could go in to the change rooms with that size and the tops were all 2xl and not 3, 4, 5xl like I used buy so I was sooo happy... Woohooo blooodyyyy wooohoooo

It was great going shopping with Marina because she buys clothes at size 14 that I want to get in to so it was like inspiration to get there.

Afterwards we went to a lovely lunch at Modana (cafe) and I had a chicken panini hmmmm yummmy.

It was a great day... I enjoyed it!

Love ya all

Congratulations on the shopping - it's a great feeling to see those sizes going down isn't it?

Do you have your won Biggest Loser or are you watching the American or Australian series? I so want it back - it's only been over here for a few weeks and i'm already missing my daily dose of that show, I can't get enough!

Enjoy your weekend.

I love the Biggest Loser and I am very inspired by the show - I always feel more energetic when the season is on. There's nothing on in Canada right now - hoping that a new season is on the way soon! Take care.

Isnt it a great feeling when you can get into smaller clothes! I hit the sale as well but have already done a bit of damage with our bank card this month so I was really good.

OH MY GOD, wasn't Eric (Biggest Loser) AMAZING? I just couldn't believe it was the same person.
I know Suzy was in the last final of the biggest loser and Kai was in this one (god she's weird) but it is always the men that win and always 2 men and only 1 women in the final - I wonder why? Some of those people looked so good eh, wow.

YAY on the shopping trip, cool that your clothes are getting smaller, nothin better than that I reckon. You get so much more choice in smaller clothes eh?
I am like you though and still automatically reach for the larger size.

Have a fantastic weekend mate.

Yeah small but steady losses are definately the way to go. You are doing so well. I am pleased you got to go shopping and came out happy.

I think it takes our minds a little longer to catch up to our body when it comes for reaching out for clothing... I too did that and got a wonderful surprise a few weeks back...
Always good when something is too big!!

OOOO!!! isn't it exciting when we can get into smaller clothes, it's a good measure of how far we have come.
