Day 49 of my 100 day challenge



So I am checking in after my weigh in last night…and I lost the 5.2 that I gained the week before.  Still not certain how that gain happened in the first place, but I am thankful for the loss.  I am trying to be more diligent in my tracking.  Also, I have been looking for some new recipes.  I found a girl on youtube (WeightWatchergirl1) and she has some great recipes on there.  I am excited to try a few of them out…well, minus the sloppy joes because I had a bad experience with sloppy joes as a child and I just won’t eat them.

Also, let’s be honest, I have been told repeatedly that I dress frumpy or older than I actually am, etc.  I was raised Pentecostal so I dress modestly compared to many people.  I don’t like to wear skirts too short, etc.  I know that it probably doesn’t help me look any taller or anything, but I prefer to maintain my modesty.  I told a friend that I would go to a personal shopper after we hit our weight loss goals, but I am concerned that I won’t be able to find a personal shopper that will respect my modesty standards.  I think I will have to do some major research into this topic.  I did find some Pentecostal woman on YouTube that have “lookbooks” etc. which I think will help a great deal while I am on my journey.  I think if I can get my maxi skirts hemmed up (I have to get the thread and change out my needle on the machine), but as I am vertically challenged pretty much everything needs to be hemmed.  While I am on this journey, I have decided that I need to pick up a couple of things that I saw in the videos (or things similar) that I can add to my current wardrobe to help  me be a little more fashionable right now while I am still losing.

Hope everyone has a blessed day and a wonderful weekend!
