On my way...

I wouldn't normally write about this, but I could use some words of encouragement...

I have several special events coming up in the next few months and I am to the point
where I am not thrilled with my waistline...nor am I happy about that little number
that appears on the tag inside my clothing.  Ugh, size 10? Really?  I was a size 4 two years ago!
(Side note: I'm only 5' 3" tall!!)

I have recently started committing to going to the gym 3 to 4 times a week and
really watching my calorie intake.  I am TIRED of trying on clothing only to have a
major meltdown in the fitting room...

This past weekend I tried on a bridesmaid dress for my dear friend Katherine's wedding.
A toothpick sized girl measured my bra and underwear!
Hello thumbalina, nice to meet you.  I am the Michelin man.

Oh, that measuring tape isn't long enough?
By all means, announce my measurements as loud as possible.

Okay, that's enough for now...Why am I writing this?
I need to keep myself motivated and on track and by posting these little tidbits on here
I can keep myself accountable.  So thank you to whoever is reading this!
Do any of you ever feel like this?  I will make sure to keep you posted on my (hopefully) success.

And thank you my bloggy friends for putting up with me and this random post today :)
Off to the gym to reclaim my waistline!

If there is anyone else out there that has these same thoughts
and feelings I found some inspiring words of encouragement here!


  1. I know exactly how you feel! Great job going to the gym so often! I'm sure if you keep it up you'll be thrilled! Feeling good is the most important thing. Working out always makes me feel better!

  2. Aren't you a doll for sharing this. Makes me feel like I'm not alone. In fact, I'm right there with you in size and height! ;) Only I was a 4 about 4 years ago. haha. I'm having trouble getting up and actually doing something - though I think you've inspired me! Thanks!!

  3. so been there you are so not alone. keep up all the hard work and keep us posted can't wait to hear about all the progress.

  4. Umm...I feel like this every day of my life. Promise!
