Just went to Kohl's and blew a load of moolah on a whole new summer wardrobe! (whoa! totally just remembered I didn't use the giftcard in my pocketbook! Oh well - I have to return a dress anyway...I'll pick up some more clothes! LOL)
I raided the petite section and got about 10 pairs on summer bottoms - size 10P, thank you very much. It's a victory and a nice thing to see and say, because that means I'm maintaining well. Last summers sad 12s are going buy buy officially. Only the ones that really fit will stay, but baggy is not allowed anymore.
I'm still a large in the tops for some reason....hmmmm....the boobs maybe? Anyway..the styles of tops still suck. I'm still not pregnant, nor do I plan to be!!! I bought one of each of the Kohl's classic seasonal graphic t-shirt. Mediums were to tight in the shoulder (I hate that). Larges were a little to big. I bought the Larges. They can shrink all they want to in the drier - I don't care at $5.50 a piece! LOL They will be very useful camping too.
Now - the bathingsuit is still not bought. I try them on in the stores and they all stink. I don't think I'm a separates type of person. I'm going to give QVC a try instead.
I treated myself to 3 pairs of new sandles too. The ones on my feet now are ten years old. They look OK, but for goodness sake!
I gave a little fashion show to my 4 week post-partum SIL. We had fun, and she's in that weird, new, foreign body of hers....it gives her hope that things come back to normal. She approved of all my purchases, which made me feel good. She still can't believe how "skinny" I am. I put that word in quotes, because I'm still 162 in my head...and I do not feel skinny. It's nice to talk with a new mom about how things change when a baby comes. We now have a big chunk of stuff in common and she sometimes needs my knowledge...and it's nice to be needed and appreciated like that. She's a great mom...she's doing just fine. I gave her a few L shirts that I bought thinking that she might need a boost of normal non-maternity clothes - actually, they look better on her than me! I'll go back and get some more with my never used gift card! LOL

I was just looking at pics from this past year...I am wearing the same green sweater, or aqua sweater, or maroon fleece in 90% of the pics! Holy cow!! I can honestly say that I missed the after xmas sales competely, and I rarely get out to shop, so that is most of the problem right there, but for GOODNESS sake - you'd think I'd have more sweaters during the winter! I do have to admit - my husband did the laundry and noted that I own waaay too many zippered hoodies. Oh well...warm weather is a comin' and I have to check out those clothes soon too....I already know that I am sorely lacking in everyday t-shirts (my staple) and shorts are sad, as well as work out gear. Maybe I can get some sweet clearance stuff next week on my day off.

That's what I feel like.....Ughh.
Last week was the crappiest eating week on record in the longest time. Easter Week junk wound it's way into my worst stress eating week EVER! The 14th brought the quarterly taxes and the billing and the pre-estimated taxes...and me having to do everything because that is my job. I really screwed the pooch in my time management and I deliberately ate when I wasn't hungry...and about 80% of the time. I guess it was bound to happen eventually.
So here's the skinny on "maintenance" - I think it just plain stinks. You try to ween yourself off of SP, but let's be real - you need it. And that little tidbit of info really pisses me off. I don't want to NEED anything. I WANT to be able to live life without this crutch ( I really should say tool), but it looks like I NEED it to maintain. Mind you, during this whole week at work of stress eating, I'm getting compliments on how well I look! Hahaha LOL ROFL You'd have thunk it would have stopped me from shoving the extra slice of pizza in my mouth! NOT! The mind plays weird tricks and this blog makes no sense.
I'm camping this weekend (home for a little bit in between for kid's baseball) and I'm going to let things be until Monday, when normal routine is back in stride. I no longer watch my nephew, which means I can actaully get out of my house on Mon & Fri with the 2 kids and go food shopping for my fruits & veggies instead of relying on Peapod...and I can exercise easier when the little guy naps. Tracking begins in full swing too. Food & Fitness. My compass is off and I need to get it back.
I would love to get a tummy tuck. My middle is depressing. Pizza dough central. Sounds gross, but all true. I don't think a billion situps could fix this one, but I guess that is what I have to settle on. Tighten what's underneath as best as I can. I guess that's why someone invented Spanx. Why is all of this bothering me now? Who knows. I just reconnected with people who only knew me at 185, and we are planning to meet next week. Is there pressure to look extra extra good? Most likely. I'm 35 to 40 pounds lighter now, but mentally, I'm at 165 again....lol even that would have been 20 pounds lighter than when they knew me! ROFL....I know - I'm mental!
Anway - I can't blog anymore b/c I have to put my MOM hat on. Do I feel better? a little bit. Can't wait to start tracking again. Back to my comfort zone, as much as I WANT to resist, I NEED to do this again.
