I have begun to make some changes in my life. The first one is joining weight watchers, again! I am determined this time and am confident it's something I will stick with. I joined 2 weeks ago and had my 1st weigh in on Tuesday night. I lost 3.8 lbs. I was thrilled. :-) My scale at home did not show a loss at all, so I spent the drive there giving myself a pep talk. The loss was a true surprise. I can't wait to weigh in again this Tuesday! My friend, Robin from work is going with me. After the meeting we sat in her car and talked and laughed SO hard. It was nice to just not think and BE for a while. Laughter is wonderful medicine!

The second change is to focus on things that make me feel pretty, nice....better. It's kinda silly the little changes I have made, but they do make such a difference. I am taking the time to apply lotion (the smell good kind) after every shower and I am shaving a lot more often. I am also trying to take time for makeup in the morning. Oh, and I bought that new Olay 7 in 1 body wash. I really like it. I notice a big difference in my skin!

Along with the cleanliness/lotiony/shaven/smellin' good change I have been taking more care with what I wear as my "lounging clothes". We are big jammie wearers here. when we come in, the clothes come off, the jammies go on. Which is all fine and dandy, but I have gotten a little too comfortable in my comfortable clothes. T-shirts with holes, pants with worn out elastic, mismatchedness, braless. Just your typical grungy gross girl look. So, I am weeding out the old jammies and bringing in new. Cute things. Unstained, Unholy (but not sinful ;) ), untorn, matching things! Along with that; cute bras and panties..that MATCH! I have even stepped out of my cotton panty comfortzone and purchased a few silky/lacy pair! And instead of letting the girls hang out bra free in all their sagginess, I have bought a couple softcup comfort bras to wear around the house.

The third change came in the way of a long overdue haircut yesterday. I had several inches cut off and lots of layers put in. I love it!

I am not a huge fan of change. In fact, I have a real hard time with it. but these changes I can do. This I can handle. And I'm going to like myself a little better for it!

I'm kind of doing the same thing. I told Patrick that I'm trying to embrace my "inner girliness." I've been ignoring her for SOOOO long! It does feel good to finally acknowledge her.

I'm proud of you, girl.
