One thing I learned is when shopping for clothes I need to wear Spanx or control top pantyhose otherwise it can get still get depressing! So much nice having a smooth line rather than seeing the bulge of loose skin at my waistline!

As someone who basically lived in Lane Bryant, it is exhilarating and frightening to realize I can and have a right to walk into any small boutique and find clothes for myself! Experimenting with stores I never shopped in before like Black and White. Just checked out that 6pm website and thought it looked promising. I am also liking the Jennifer Lopez collection at Kohls.

It is just thrilling to be able to do this. When I was losing and before I knew for sure I could go in stores like WHBM, JCrew, etc., and actually purchase something, I used to send my size 8 teenage daughter in to check the sizes and see if I could go in! Now when I go in, people actually wait on me!

I want to just get a full supply of highwaist (up to my bra) briefs, spanks or an off brand. That way I don't have to worry about it! Just like Dolly Parton in Steel Magnolias!! hahaha

Just wanted to stop back by and mention again how much I enjoy shopping now ;)

I still have to be careful not to let myself go nuts, but I could! I now watch the sales online and in the store for my favorite stores. I think White House Black Market has come to the top as the absolute favorite, especially for work clothes. They are mostly fitted, have a lot of peplums, which tend to look best on me. I use coupons codes online, and I'm a "black book" member (aka spent a lot) so I get free shipping and an additional 5% off.

I went in there yesterday to check the sale racks, and this guys was helping me. He filled the dressing room with clothes in different combinations, and it was a lot of fun just trying all the looks on. I still only bought a couple of sale items, but I really did enjoy it....though I had to resist a couple of the full price newer items. So there is the sport in shopping. I'll dog the stores and watch online till that stuff's on sale and get it then.

Has anyone else noticed that size 10s and 12s are NOT that easy to come by? I read that they make fewer of them. So when it comes to sale shopping, you need to be quick because mediums and 10s are the first to go!

I was told by my hubby that I can shop anywhere I want now..He told me that when I bought a size large leather jacket yesterday and it fit like it was made for me....

I stared at him and felt a panic well up inside of my chest and stomach....I have been shopping at Pennington's for a life time..Always felt safe there...Paid dearly for the clothes and rarely liked them...But that was all there was....Now the woman who hates shopping can shop anywhere...Oh no.......

What am I to do!!!???

Go shopping and have fun.

My husband gave me a gift card for Victoria's Secret for Valentines' Day. This is the first time I've ever been able to shop there.

I'm really excited to be able to shop at Victoria's Secret. I've always wanted to wear their PINK hoodies and yoga pants and yes their bras. I'm not sure if I'm there yet. I've lost 107lbs so far- still have a ways to go. BUT I am finally fitting into Old Navy clothes in the stores. Their XXL used to fit me okay but now they're too big and I'm actually wearing their XL or even some L! That is drippy for me considering I used to be a size 26/28 and wear a 4X (all from online since they don't have plus sizes in the stores). I'm still wrapping my mind around going into 'normal' stores and it being okay to try on straight sizes. I feel like someone is going to stare and me like 'why is she in here? She can't fit these clothes!' Still. It's a very mental thing to get over.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
