Exciting news about Joe!

I know I am a horrible blogger, but I will try to work on it.

Some great news, my husband has lost 50lbs! :) I am so happy for him! He originally set this goal to lose 50lbs by the start of football season. But he was ahead of schedule, so he has set another one to lose another 50lbs by the start of football season.

Last weekend Joe and I went shopping @ JCPennies, this is where we normally buy Joe's shirts just because they do have a Big & Tall area (its small but they do have one) and plus they were having a sale! (I love sales!) So we got a size smaller in the shirts for Joe! (I know exciting but keep on reading there is more) We normally have to special order his jeans through King Size so, I started looking through the jeans that they had, I looked for the biggest size and had Joe try them on, he came out of the dressing room, and looked great he said they were not tight and he could probably go another size smaller! I am so happy for him that is 3 SIZES smaller than what he normally wore! :)

For me, I have dropped 4 pant sizes and 1-2 shirt sizes. My old pants are getting to big on me and the shirts are getting big on me also. We will probably need to buy more clothes in about 1-2 months which we are totally excited about. People at work are noticing which is awesome, I love to hear "Have you lost weight" and I am even more excited to tell them how much I have lost and hopes to get them motivated! :)

I will work on a post of what keeps me motivated and really what I am eating to try to help out any way I can!

As for the update on my weight loss, last week I lost 0.8lbs, so that makes my total 47.2lbs GONE FOREVER! and I am 18.9lbs away from my 2nd weight loss goal! :)
  • This past weekend was rough for me because I wanted to eat everything that I shouldn't eat. Its a good thing Joe was at the house because I probably would have. I just had the munchies REAL BAD! I hate feeling like that. But I did still lose weight so that is a GREAT THING! :)

I MADE IT!!!!!!!!

I know I have been slacking, HOWEVER, I did this for a reason, there is always a reason behind my madness!!!

I finally made my first weight loss goal!!!! FEATHER WE CAN NOW GET A PEDICURE!!!

So I am very excited to say I have lost 36.2 lbs! :)

My husband and I recently joined a gym two weeks ago. We are exercising a lot, I love the way it makes me feel, I love seeing what it changes in me. I am just beyond excited! :) My husband has started a blog go to Joseph's page and encourage him too! We defiantly need encouraging that's for sure! But I know We will continue to do this and its going to take a while to get the weight off but it did take a while to put the weight on originally!

My next weight loss goal is 29.9 lbs! I hope to concur that goal soon! But I need help! I need suggestions on what to do for a reward! I get massages every month, due to where I work, so that really isn't an option! I look forward to your suggestions! :) Thanks for hanging in there! :)

:) I am off to buy some new work out shoes Shoe Carnival is having a sale! :)

Purse meet Suitcase... Suitcase meet Purse...

Well if you are my cousin you think my purse is a suitcase, however I beg to differ. See I have a BIG purse! I love big purses. There is so much you can do with a big purse! First I can put my lunch in it so I don't have to carry a separate bag, second I can put some bottle drinks in there for when I am shopping or heading to work. I can pretty much carry anything and everything in my purse (probably even a small animal/kid) I am joking about the kid but I probably could! :) So you are probably wondering where I am going with this post, because I kind of am... Over at JennyKate's Spot she was tagged with telling everyone about her purse. And well she tagged anyone that wanted to post about it to do so. So here I am, I tagged myself to tell you about my purse! You excited!?!?! :)

1) Post a picture of whatever bag you are carrying as of late. No, you cannot go up to your closet and pull out that cute little purse you used back before you had kids. I want to know what you carried today or the last time you left the house.

This is my purse.

I did have a different one up until last Saturday but it was getting on my nerves so I switched it back to this purse. I heart this purse. It fits my arm just perfect! :) I can pretty much put anything in it that I need, like when I am taking my Lean Cuisine to work for lunch and my water bottle and of course my snacks like oranges, apples or oatmeal *I think I have fit all of that in my purse at one time :)*

2) I want to know how much it cost☺ and this is not to judge. This is for entertainment purposes only. So spill it. And if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, I’d love to hear it.

My purse only cost $29.99 at Target. I normally do not spend that much on a purse; I do not think I have ever spent that much on a purse before. I normally wait until it goes on sale or wait until I have a coupon. I really do not like other people buying purses for me because I like to take several in my buggy and "try them on" while walking around the store. Ya know put it on my shoulder, to check the ease of it all! I take purse buying extremely SERIOUS! :)

The story behind this purse I have eyed this purse every time I went on my many shopping trips to Target. A Saturday before I went out of town for work. I looked everywhere for a purse, and I kind of found one I liked but it was a little to much for me, I think it should have been on sale and it wasn't so I passed it up. I shopped for like 3 hours for a purse, went to Gordmans, Khols, JC Penny's, and than finally went back to Target and I fell INLOVE again with this purse. So I bought it! My husband doesn't like it he thinks it looks like a hobo bag! But I heart it!

3) Show me your insides! (I added this)

This is what I currently have in my purse... coupon book, wallet, CC wallet, VS lotion, 2-09 calendars, alieve, medicine, 2 packs of gum, candy, anti bacterial x2, mirror, bills, and little brown carrier...

And the following contest are in the brown little carrier in my purse; aromatherapy headache relief (bath and body), NYC sheer red lipstick, CG Wetslicks AmazeMint (lip gloss), pencil, Neutrogena Moisture Shine Gloss, VS Lip Gloss, Mary Kay lip gloss, Cover Girl Outlast lip stick with shiny gloss, L’Oreal colour juice sheer juicy lip gloss, 2 blue pens, and L’Oreal Infallible Raisin Lip Gloss. Do you see a theme here?

4. Tag some chicks. And link back to this post so people know why the heck you’re showing everyone your purse.

So I am going to do like she did and say
TAG YOUR IT! If you read this consider yourself tagged! Its fun! And it’s an excuse to clean out your purse! HA!

Woo to the Hoo Wednesday

Woo to the Hoo Wednesday!

To find out more information please click on the picture to find out more information about the Woo to the Hoo Wednesday!

So I am posting a little late, its been a C-R-A-Z-Y week at work. My WOO goes to my old youth pastor that I had when I was in highschool. He sends out devotions every single day, also gives his own praise to God. It encourages me alot. I appreciate him taking time out of his day to send the devotions out to his "email list". He also encourages me to get right with God, to find a church my husband and I haven't found a home church, although we haven't been activly trying either. So we are right now looking for a home church. If you are reading this I ask that you pray for us, that God helps us find a home church. So Woo to the Hoo to my ex/old Youth Pastor!
