Here's a Quickie.

Hello hello awesome people!

I need to sit down and think of some blog goodness to post but right now I just wanted to share with you my interview on the beautiful Robincredible 's blog! Her blog is not about weight loss but about all the awesomeness the world has to offer and I am honored that she counted me awesome enough to be on her blog! She does a segment where she interviews people with inspirational stories and this week she chose ME! Sooo check it out. Here's the link again: 

I promise to be back with some awesomeness to share. Right now I have to go get dinner on the own version of turkey meatloaf. I'll let you know how it comes out but it's looking yummy!!

Be blessed!

Skinny Jeans Dreams Come True!

Well, I guess it's time to change the name of my blog! lol (Just kidding..not really doing that!) But boy oh boy do I have a story for you!!

1st of all - Yesterday I reached my 80lbs lost mark! I am down a total of 80.8 !

But yesterday was also my all out shopping day that I had been looking forward to for so long and it was well worth the wait! I headed to The Walk outlets in Atlantic City where they recently opened a Forever 21 store. I was excited/nervous to go in there because it's a "tiny" person's store and normally I would have walked right past it just "knowing" I wouldn't fit in anything. This time though, I was anxious to see if I could fit in their clothes. Now, their sizes don't run 10, 12, 14, 16. They run 21, 21, 23, 24, etc and go up to a size 30. So I asked the fitting room attendant what size she thought I would be if I wore a 12. She said "You have to add 21 to it so you would be like a 33 but the store only goes up to a 30 *eyes me up and down* but I think you could probably fit a 29 or a 30." SO... I grabbed a 30 off the wall and prepared myself for them not to fit, convincing myself that if they didn't I wouldn't get discouraged. To my delight, THEY FIT! (See picture below) But that's not the most exciting part of the day............

*note the skinniness of the skinny jeans!* 

& I just love this shirt! "Young but wise" 

Sooo..get ready - this is the exciting part....

I headed over to Old Navy, which is always my go-to jean shop. I "knew" I was a size 12 and was super excited about that so I grabbed a couple pairs of size 12 jeans from the shelves and a few other items and went to try them on. Well, when I put on the 12's.....this is what I saw.............

WHAT???! I was too excited. So I ran out real quick and grabbed a size 10 and when I got back to the dressing room I took a deep breath, preparing myself for the excitement of wearing a size 10...

Size 10
I was excited as heck but I wasn't sold. I didn't feel like they looked "right" so I opened the door and asked the dressing room attendant (I should have made her take a picture lol she was super sweet and helpful!). I asked her "Do these look okay??" and she said.....dun dun dun........"Well, they look kinda baggy in the butt and at the top..maybe you should try a smaller size. Do you want me to go get you one?"

Yes, yes ya'll. Yes, indeed she did. She said what I thought she said. She said I needed a size 8! She went to get me a new pair of jeans and I stood in the dressing room huffing and puffing and closing my eyes and preparing myself for what was about to come..

SIZE 8 JEANS!!!!!!!!!!!

and MORE size 8 jeans in a different cut just to make sure I wasn't losing my mind!


I jumped up and down and I shed a tear and I told my story to the cashier and anyone else who would listen!! 

Note: My weight loss goals: 
  • Lose 100lbs.
  • Wear single digit jeans - CHECK!
I can't even begin to explain how awesome this felt/still feels! I smiled the rest of the day. I'm smiling as I write this! I can't believe my goals, that once seemed so far away, are coming true. This is unreal!

Now mind you, I do know that all jeans from different stores are cut differently and when I went to Target today (where the clothes always run super small) I did buy a junior's size 12 dress pants and I was definitely NOT discouraged about that!

Now on to some other awesome finds...

I love the way this sweat shirt is cut even though you can't see if in the pic. Forever 21!

$40 coat from TJ Maxx! 

Not really "leather" but it will do! :) 

I still need to go out for some more shirts. I bought 2 pairs of shoes and the essentials as well as several shirts but I definitely need more. I need to find a store where I can get a lot of shirts for low prices. I am thinking Rainbow or next weekend we are probably going to Cow Town where you can always find great deals!

Anyway, it was an all around awesome day! I have to play the lotto - All 8's! That's my lucky number! Lost 80.8lbs and bought size 8 jeans!

As always, thank you for reading and thank you for all the love and support!

Some Women Of Interest...

Hey lovely people! Lots to talk about today so sit down and relax :)

1st of all. Haters are going to be haters are going to be haters. And what do haters do? They spread rumors because it makes them feel better about themselves. Okay so I'm probably am really late on this but I don't really watch celebrity news like that BUT...I went to Google my girl Jennifer Hudson the other day and the first thing that came up after her name was "Jennifer Hudson Lap Band" and I was like HUH??! So I clicked. Did ya'll know that back in June after she fell ill with food poisoning, these jokers had the audacity to say she had complications with a lap band surgery that she never even had??? WHY? Because people are too dag on lazy to get off their butts to lose weight and get fit so if anyone else loses a significant amount of weight, they must have had surgery. Anyway, now that I realize how late I am on this subject, I'll leave it at that. Just know it boiled my blood. Lap Band weight loss happens over a period of months....slow and steady weight loss happens over a period of a couple years, such as Jennifer Hudson's journey. I'm looking forward to reading her book whenever it comes out....even though I feel some kind of way she can easily write this book and everyone will buy it and I desperately want to write a book and won't have it that easy lol but such is life. I love that woman!

On to more current news that peaked my interest this morning...

The Today Show had an interesting segment this morning about a young, plus size, lady who entered a plus size modeling contest as a joke and the interesting chain of events that followed. Nancy Upton was caught off guard when she saw an American Apparel plus size modeling contest titled "The Next Big Thing" that was looking for "Bootylicious" women for a photo shoot. Nancy's argument is essentially, why do plus size women have to be marketed to differently than "regular?" women? Why do they have to be "Bootylicious" instead of "Beautiful" ? She explains in her video (posted below) that she pictures these skinny chics in L.A. picturing plus size women as these people who just over eat and don't take care of themselves so as a joke, she entered these pictures.....& to her surprise she won! Watch the video to hear the rest of the story.

I happen to think this last one is pretty friggen awesome! lol

I say Good For Her!! I think she's super creative and I applaud her for sticking up for plus size women around the world. Even though my goal was to NOT be plus size anymore, when I was (well according to society I guess I still AM since size 12 is apparently plus size!) but anyway when I was bigger, I still embraced who I was. I even talked about starting a Miss Plus NJ contest after meeting Miss Plus Nevada a couple years ago. No matter what you look like, you need to be proud of who you are. *High five* to Ms. Nancy Upton for not being scared to show her personality & wit while at the same time showing that whether you're a size 18 or a size 0, all women can be BEAUTIFUL, not beautiful if you're skinny and bootyfull if you're heavy.

On that note, I Googled "Beautiful women" and this is a screen shot of what my results were:

I didn't see one "plus size" woman even when I continued to scroll down...I don't think I need to go into much detail as to why this saddens me. 

On a brighter note:
Weigh in is tomorrow and I'm anxious to see how my mom, step dad, and grandfather all did!! I'll keep you guys posted! Wish me luck. It's been another week of no workouts with this wonderful back of mine. Prayers are appreciated!!

Some motivational randomness for the morning!

Hey all! This is just a really quick update. I'm headed out the door for a long day ahead filled with apts and school (Oh, joy!). But I realized I hadn't blogged in several days..almost a week actually!! So I just wanted to check in and say HEY!!

So, my 24th birthday is in 44 days and I set a short-term goal to lose 11 more pounds by then, which would put me at 90lbs gone!! That would be awesome. For once in my life, I'm not thinking about cake and food for my birthday but I'm thinking about what kind of "small" outfit I'm gonna wear and how many activity points I'll earn on the dance floor. I'm thinking The Pool at Harrah's...but it's still up in the air! Just looking forward to getting some friends together, putting on an awesome outfit, and shaking my thang!

I made an awesome meal last night. I just put it together as I went but what I did was cut up eggplant into cubes (season with S&P) and sauteed it with onions and olive oil in a pan then covered it in a can of fire roasted tomatoes, covered it and let it simmer for about 10 minutes then served it over brown rice. It was super yummy!! I also threw in a little chili powder for a little kick but that part is completely optional and I topped it with a lil Parmesan cheese before I ate it. Even my daughter ate it!!

Some Randoms...

I saw this & just loved it! No story to go with it..just a friendly reminder :) 

This goes along with my next picture & I will explain there....

I am NOT a biggest loser fan. I may be one of few weight loss fanatics that is not but I just think it's unrealistic to lose weight that fast. What goes up fast, comes down fast - I believe that statement with almost everything in life! 

We all have points where we want to say "Forget this.." but it's not worth it! NEVER GIVE UP!!

& matter how slow you think you're going, you're still running laps around everyone still sitting on the couch!

HEYYY all my new followers!!! Welcome aboard!! When we get to 100 followers, there's a giveaway coming!

Stay motivated people!! Have an awesome's ALMOST Friday!!

Reflections on the 1st year of the rest of my life!

What a year it has been!! As promised: My emotions, feelings, lessons, and ramblings about the 1st year of the rest of my life.

Things I've Learned:
  • You don't have to be on a die-it to lose weight. 
  • The only way you're going to be successful at losing weight is if you are doing it for YOU. 
  • Spinach is delicious. 
  • Support from family and friends goes a LONG WAY. 
  • I love to exercise. 
  • My metabolism has always been slow because I've always been slow. 
  • When you put your mind, body, and soul into reaching a goal - there is nothing that can hold you back. 
15 months ago I gave birth to the most beautiful girl on the planet, which changed my life completely!! Little did I know that that little 7lb, 15oz miracle would change my life in more ways than I could imagine. Yes, being a mommy is a wonderful journey in and of itself but my life was set on two new paths that day. It was time for me to lose this weight once and for all and be a good role model for my daughter.

and so my Weight Watchers journey began...

I knew Weight Watchers worked because I had lost a significant amount of weight on it in high school (Just to be gained back when I went to college) but this time was different. This time it wasn't for a man or to get attention from anyone. It was for ME and MY DAUGHTER. I set out full speed ahead on plan and haven't looked back since. 
This year has taught me so many things about health, fitness, and life in general. I am overwhelmed with emotions and thankfulness when I think about how far I have come and that I have stuck with it for a year. If I can do it that long, there is no turning back!! To turn back now would waste an entire year of my life and seeing how short life is, that's just not an option. 

Being heavy for so many years of my life and now being looked at as a "thin" woman or an "average" woman is something that is very hard to get used to yet at the same time, when I look back at my fat pictures, that seems like a distant memory. 

(Week 4 of Story of You answer - What is your inspiration?)

Along with all the other things that I listed above that I have learned this year, most importantly I have learned that the saying "Smile, you never know who is watching" has more truth to it than I ever could have imagined. I set out on this path to change my own life for the life of my daughter and never in my wildest dreams did I imagine I would aid in changing so many others' lives as well. Since about the time that I reached my 50lbs mark, I have been bombarded with people every single day asking me questions about Weight Watchers, about exercise, about how much water they should drink, tips on recipes, and so on and 15 or more people have signed up for Weight Watchers or re-joined after seeing my success. I can't count the number of times people have told me I am an inspiration....I still find that hard to accept sometimes! Incredible works of God using me so perfectly in His plan. 

I've learned that support and words of encouragement go a LONG way. Social networking has been key to my success. Being able to log onto the Weight Watchers site or Facebook and talk about my struggles as well as my victories has been such an awesome aspect of this journey. The encouragement I have gotten from friends and family when I post new pictures of myself has pushed me further and further. My Saturday morning phone calls to my mommy after weigh in every week, my compliments from my boyfriend about how I look, comments and love from my blog readers, all the people in my apartment building who have watched me shrink and always have a kind word, everything adds up to make this incredible support system that has honestly kept me pushing day in and day out. At this point, everyone is watching and waiting for me to reach my goal. You know how people say "People wait for you to fail." ? I disagree. I think in this case, people are waiting to see me succeed and I am forever grateful to each and every member of my support team!! 

Just a few of my weight loss warriors!

I have learned that sometimes changing the outside, can make a huge change on the inside. I never could have imagined the changes that would occur in my spirit and my personality just with changing my appearance. I am THE HAPPIEST I have been in my entire life. A lot of that is due to the fact that for the first time in my life I have an absolutely wonderful man by my side with an amazing, beautiful, loving daughter. But A LOT of it also has to do with my physical changes. I feel like I am walking on clouds every powerful yet delicate at the same time. The number on the scale is a great way to gauge my success but if it were based solely on the way I felt, I would already be at goal! I feel absolutely amazing. Shoot...I lost a 4th grader!! haha I dress nicer, I do my makeup nicer, I just simply care more about my appearance all around and if you ask me, it shows!! 

This year has been nothing short of amazing!! Now, I am looking forward. Looking forward to reaching my ultimate goal. Looking forward to continuing to help others. Looking forward to writing a book about this journey - I don't care if only my friends and family ever read it, I have a lot to say!! Looking forward to teaching my daughter healthy habits and looking forward to the day she realizes I did this because of her. 

I just know that God didn't bring me this far for nothing. I am on this earth to make a difference and I don't mean just in myself. I have some ideas in the making but just know that reaching my weight loss goal will not be the last of what you'll hear from KJB!!! 

Thank you all for being so awesome and being so supportive this past year and in the years to come!! I love each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart.

Love always,

Awesomeness over a bed awesomeness with a side of awesomeness washed down with a glass of awesomeness!!

With that being said...Hey guys!! I am so so so happy and excited and proud and a million other emotions about it being my one year Weight Watchers anniversary. The first year of the rest of my life!!

So much awesomeness occurred today my little heart is about to explode. 

First order of business: I lost 2lbs this week even without working out because of my back! One year and 78.8lbs !!! Can't believe how close I am to 80lbs! and really can't believe how close I am to goal!! Also, the fact that I wasn't able to workout this week and still lost weight speaks wonders for how my metabolism has changed! Obviously, I need to continue doing what I have been doing to get it to this point but it's nice to know that it's working much faster these days. On that note, my back is feeling MUCH better today than it has been! I go back on Monday for another adjustment. Hopefully I will be able to workout SOON!!!!

Sooo I knew my mommy and step dad were joining Weight Watchers today and I was super excited about that. So happy they decided it was time to get healthy because I worry about their health! 

There they are in Puerto Rico
 BUT the big surprise of the day put me over the top excited. My mom told me yesterday that she had a surprise for me and when I got to my meeting this morning she said "Your surprise is on its way." ...a few seconds later my grandparents pulled up and I was like "aww......okay?.......OMG OMG OMG Bo-Pop is joining today too!!!!!!!" (Bo-pop is my grandfather.)  I love all my grandparents unconditionally but I have always been particularly partial to Bo-Pop and always think to myself how much I need my grandparents to stick around a while, obviously leading me to also worry about Bo-Pop's health. So needless to say, I was bouncing off the walls, telling everyone at my meeting "LOOK!! My mom, my step dad, and my grandfather all joined today!!" And when my meeting leader asked me to get up and show off my Lose For Good shirt, my Bo-Pop was so proud he said "That's MY granddaughter!"

My awesome grandparents in PR

Bo-Pop aka Santa Claus with my baby girl - He said "Well I guess I'll have to wear a pillow under my suit now." 

I am so thankful that God is using me in His will to lead so many others to change their lives for the better. We only have one body to live in, we need to treat it like gold!! I know my baby girl will be thankful to have her grandparents AND Great grandparents around for a LONG TIME and I know they are all well on their way to living healthier lives.

Onto some other awesome things....

Weight Watchers recently came out with this Oil Sprayer. It's so nifty!! I had to buy one today because I have a hard time getting my healthy oils in since I usually want to use 4 points worth of of oil if I decide to use it in anything. Well this little gadget here will help with that dilemma! 

The WW Oil Sprayer. 

10 sprays = 1 PointPlus value. Pretty convenient if you ask me. I haven't used it yet, I just bought it today but I'm excited to use it on salad, pasta, or whatever for some low point flavoring and Good Health Guideline butt kicking!

One last thing for today...I have more for you tomorrow but for the sake of an extremely long blog, I'll save it! Check in tomorrow for my emotions, feelings, lessons, and more about this past year as a Weight Watcher. 

My INCREDIBLE Weight Watchers leader, Stephanie!! I told her I needed a pic of her awesomeness for my blog! She is one FANTASTIC woman and I can't wait to be to someone else what she is for me. 

Happy Weekend Bloggers!! Keep on losing!!! :) 

And remember...
"If you kinda follow your plan, it kinda works. If you really follow your plan, it really works!" 
- my WW meeting quote of the day.

Hey my wonderful people!

I deleted my Facebook today for an undetermined amount of time. For a few reasons that I won't get into but mainly because I am way too addicted to it lol I figured that mostly what I post about is weight loss and my journey and those who care that much follow my blog or follow me on twitter. @Thinspired .

This just gives me more time to focus on more important things and I can keep up with you guys daily! (Or in this case, more than once per day.)

I hope all my FB friends who do follow my journey have subscribed to my blog. You can subscribe by email also so you get email notifications.

The only thing that sucks is I won't be able to continue with the Lose For Good Story of You. Maybe I'll try to find out what the weekly questions are and post them here even though I won't be able to enter in the contest to win the $5,000. ehh..I'll play the lotto. haha

I'm debating starting a Tumblr blog also. If you have an opinion on that, please do leave feedback. That just seems good for short witty posts as opposed to long posts like Blogspot but I am definitely keeping this one, my baby!

Anyway, that's all for now. Check in for daily positivity, you know I am full of it!!

Liebster Blog & some ramblings.

 Heyyou guys! So my awesome friend Bonnie over at Fat-Be-Gone awarded me with the "Liebster Blog Award"

Liebster means ‘beloved’ or 'favourite' in German and it’s an honor to receive this award from Bonnie. The Liebster Blog Award is designed to bring additional recognition to those bloggers with less than 200 followers. If you receive the award, you should link back to the blogger that nominated you and nominate five more blogs. Also, don’t forget to let them know that you nominated them.

*It's good timing for this post because the other day my friend said that she only reads my blog and I told her that there's lots of other awesome blogs out there too!*

 And the awards go to....

  • Of course Bonnie. Even though I mentioned her above, I love her blog!! She is cut throat, straight to the point. She has these hilarious posts called Mental Mondays where she just pretty much lets loose and says whatever the hell she feels like. She's an awesome woman on the healthy train so check her out! 
  • The gorgeous Lauren @ A Little Less of Lauren. She's cute, she's funny, she's honest. Her posts will never fail to make you giggle in complete agreement! She also gives you a taste of what it's like to follow Weight Watchers from England. Her fashion and personality are out of this world. 
  • Sarah @ Not An Effing Diet . She lost over 100lbs! She's straight to the point. This is what she's doing and this is how she does it. Check out all the funny little adventures she finds along her journey. One of my favorites was a story when one of her students told her she looked like she was losing weight and the thought process that went through her head as she calmly told him "Yes I am, thank you for noticing." :) 
  • Ro Gets Fit! Her attitude is contagious & her videos are awesome. She will video herself while she's driving and tell you all about her day. Switches up the pace of reading blogs all day. She works it out too!! 
All of the blogs I follow are pretty awesome. Those are just a few I thought I would mention!  

So in other news..My back still hurts. I had my first adjustment yesterday because I called and told him I was in excruciating pain and he got me in really quick. I go back on Monday for my full evaluation and hopefully another adjustment. It just hurts! BUT I decided no more complaining... nobody reads blogs or FB statuses to hear about negative situations and frankly, nobody cares about negativity lol So I'm just going to get through this minor set back and get back on my horse. 
"It's not the situation, but whether we react (negative) or respond (positive) to the situation that's important." - Zig Ziglar
 Weigh in is tomorrow and I'm a little nervous.  I haven't worked out all week so I don't know what to expect. Can only hope for the best! 

My MOMMY and my step dad are joining Weight Watchers tomorrow with me!!! So excited about that! They have been on it before (the old plan) and have been putting off joining again and waiting until they felt it was the right time. Well, now is as good of a time as any and I'm excited for them! I'll keep you updated on their status. 

 I saw the above picture on a FB page that I am a fan of Weight Watchers Pointer Sisters . They are two sisters rocking the WW program together. Patricia has lost 128lbs since January!!! The picture above says it all though. If that's not motivation to lose weight, I don't know what is!!! 

This was me before school yesterday an my honey told me I looked sexy!! :) I love hearing nice things like that from him.

WHOA. Who's body is this???

Hey lovelies! Hope everyone is having an awesomely healthy day! I am as far as my water and food but still no working out. I went to the chiropractor today and after a basic assessment, before my x-rays, we learned that my shoulders are uneven, my hips are uneven, and he literally pinpointed EXACTLY where my pain was without me telling him. So I went to get x-rays of my whole back and pelvis and I go back on Monday for more information and hopefully my first adjustment. I really have faith that this guy can fix me. He was so excited about me being anxious to workout. He said "Wow, it's a rare occasion that I have a patient anxious to workout. Usually, I have to try to convince them to workout." That felt good :)

I entered the Weight Watchers Lose For Good "Your Story" contest. Well, it's not really a contest yet but it will be after the 7 weeks is up. Right now it's on week 3. Basically, each week for 7 weeks Weight Watchers asks a question about your journey and you post a picture of your self holding a sign with the answer to that question. I am posting them on the WW facebook but just sharing them here with you also. At the end of the 7 weeks, you can turn the pictures into a video and enter to win $5,000 so I'll need your votes in a few more weeks! Stay Tuned!!

Here are my first three weeks of pictures: 

How would you like to introduce yourself? 

How do you define weight loss success? 

What are you enjoying about getting healthy?

I will keep you updated in the weeks to come! Also, it's open to everyone so enter your pictures too!! Here's the link again.

So I saw a good friend at school today that I haven't seen in a while and she was in a rush so we didn't get to chat but she commented me on Facebook a little bit later with a comment that led me to thinking how surreal this whole journey still is. She told me that seeing me in real life, as opposed to on Facebook, is breath taking. Wow.

My mind can't fully accept the changes of my body yet. I know I mentioned that in a prior post. When people tell me these things I feel like they are talking to someone else sometimes. I don't really know how to explain it but it's almost like an out of body experience. Compliments and questions come left and right and most of the time I feel like another person is responding to them, not Krystle Bailey.

The weird thing, though, is that 99% of the people I know at my college graduated so this year I am there with pretty much all people that I don't know and have never met. So to them, I'm just an average girl. Yet, sometimes I still get that self conscious feeling like I'm the fattest girl in the room (A feeling I got often prior to this journey), like people are looking at me and thinking "Damn she's big." But then I stop and realize that I'm just average like most of the other girls in the room. Today a girl that I don't know told me that it doesn't look like I had a baby recently....that's something you say to skinny chics! lol When I am sitting in my chair with my legs crossed, I feel like I'm in someone else's body. I can't even begin to tell you how I used to WISH I could cross my legs under those desks like every other girl. I always felt so boyish with my legs all open. But I would have to turn my whole body half way over to cross my legs. Now, it's 2nd nature to cross them when I sit down except my mind is like "WHOA. Who's body is this????" 

Those things may seem silly to someone who has never been obese or severely over weight but to those of us who have, I'm sure you can relate.

Anyway, I'm exhausted! Shout out to the couple of new followers I got recently! My follower count is getting up there and I appreciate each and every one of you!! :)

Whatever the mind can concieve and believe, the mind can achieve.

I'm so anxious to go shopping for fall/winter clothes it hurts!  I have been trying to think of what I want my new fall style to be. I only really go out during the week on Tuesdays and Thursdays for school but I still want to have super cute clothes for whenever I do go out. I know I shouldn't buy too much but the way I see it is I'm already in a size Medium...I doubt I will ever be an extra small so I can't get ALL that much smaller than I am now on the top. On the bottom, I want to lose a couple more sizes but right now I'm in a snugly fitting 12 so I can wear them out for a while.

I've been doing some internet window shopping to try to figure out what I need to search for when I go shopping. (I don't like to buy clothes online.. I need to see it fit me before I buy it) I came up with a few things..

I am totally loving the ankle boot look and especially the wedge look. The fact that I can walk all day in anything higher than flats now is exciting! I guess 76 extra pounds on tippy toes can get a little painful.

Kinda hard to see the shoes but I wore them to school the other day. Currently my favorite shoes!  They were even comfy before!

An awesome leather jacket is a MUST. I have never owned one..maybe it sounds silly but I always thought they looked silly on me being as big as I was. 

Boots + Jacket = Awesomeness. 

Definitely loving the open chest or draping shoulder style shirts since I have protruding collar bones now. 

Just an awesome Old Navy find that I must have. 

You can't see the whole dress but this is what I wore my 1st day of school and I felt so sexy all day! New body + dressing nice = super duper natural high!

I'm bringing my personal fashion consultant, AKA my Ace, Tierra shopping with me when I do go so I can step outside my box a little bit with help from someone I trust and love! Only someone that used to switch one shoe with me in the 8th grade and walk around all day like that can be trusted to be MY fashion consultant lmao.

Throw back of me and T with the classic pose!

In other news...
I stayed the same at WI this week, which is perfectly fine with me. I didn't have the best of weeks with my eating and with not being able to workout due to my back issues, I didn't make up for it. So I was happy that I didn't gain. This week I am FOCUSED, FOCUSED, FOCUSED on my eating and I also got a stability ball and dumbbells from my step mom that hopefully will allow me to burn calories without hurting my back. 

I posted this on my FB the other day and forgot to post it here. Self explanatory. 

Cowboys fan through thick and thin!! But I think it's time for a new jersey lol   

 I NEED to make a difference in this world, in this community, in my town...something. I know that I was put on this earth for two things. 1) To be a mother and 2) To do something significant. I have an idea of what I want to do and it deals with young girls and self esteem. I won't go into much detail because obviously it's just in the thought process. For now, I will continue to pray that God will show me the way and lead me in the right direction. I know he will. He has the wheel, always.

You can be anything you want to be, if you only believe with sufficient conviction and act in accordance with your faith; for whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.

That's about it for tonight! Hope everyone is doing fabulous. Happy Sunday and GO COWBOYS!!!
