So far, so good...

Today's official Tuesday weigh in - 225.2
I'm still up from my lowest weight but down a couple of pounds from what I started the year at.

I'm home today with my little boy who has a winter bug. My sister in law normally watches him, but she's out of town this week so my husband and I are trading days off, each working half the week. I guess it worked out well because since he's not feeling well he's been exceptionally clingy (even regressing to wanting me to sleep with him all night), so he probably wants his mommy a little more than typical. It's not working out in the sense that I had hoped to get so much more accomplished with my time off, like organize my apartment finally...

I'm feeling like I'm in desperate need of a makeover. Not just my weight, but all over. I have succumbed to the mommy syndrome of taking care of everyone but myself. I need to change this. I need to learn that I deserve to be taken care of too. So I am going to find time to go through my wardrobe and have a make-believe "what not to wear" session in my bedroom this weekend and throw out half of my clothes.
I would have to guess that most of what I own either doesn't fit properly anymore or is hopelessly out of date. I have more clothes than I have room for, yet I have nothing to wear most days. Then I will buy the key items I find I need to round out and update my wardrobe one at a time over the next year. I think this simple (though not easy) step will go a long way in making me feel like an attractive, fashionable woman again. And it gives me a built in system of non-food rewards. So instead of celebrating with a Latte and a cupcake, I can celebrate with a new belt or a pretty camisole.

By 2012 I'll be so damn hot my hubby won't know what hit him!

  1. Woo hoo! Go, you - sounds like a great plan! :)

    "I need to learn that I deserve to be taken care of too."

    YES! Me, too. I don't know why this is so hard for us to remember.

    I'm sorry your little guy isn't feeling well. I hope he feels better ASAP (and that you don't catch it)!
