One of Those Days


You ever have one of those days. Just don't feel all bright and cheery. I think my mood is due to not being able to fit into any of my clothes. I walked in front of the mirror this morning and thought "Oh my word! Where did all that come from!" Then tried to squeeze all "that" into clothes that should be at least one size bigger.

Why do women judge their worth by the size of their clothes? I know better but it always seems to get to me. I'm lucky to have a husband that says he loves me no matter what. Yet why can't I love myself?

I think it's the lack of self control that pisses me off the most. I lost a lot of weight many years ago. I know exactly what I need to do, yet I am too lazy to do it. That is what really gets me riled up at myself.

So I started P90X last night. Let's hope in 90 days, I have regained my self control.

what is P90X???????

The Wife said...

Missy-P90X is a workout program involving a buttload of exercise CDs with a specific training schedule. There is a lot of weight training.

Last night, I worked my shoulders and back which was mainly push ups and pull ups! Let's just say I sucked at both!

haha...my word verification was
WATER!

I hear ya too! I have just lost 33lbs since April 1st on the HCG plan. You don't look over weight in your photos but if you want to drop the weight I'm behind ya sista.

The Wife said...

Woman of Many Hats- A lot of it is inside my head. I have a warped sense of self image. I've struggled with it for a long time.

Oh man! I hear ya. I've lost a lot of weight over the last year and still there is more to go. I still look in the mirror and go "Ewh".

Of course, there are also days that I think "Hot Damn, my husband is a lucky man".

Maybe some day there will be more of the latter...

Let us know how the workout regime goes.

I just got a new pair of expensive jeans (thanks to a Nordstrom gift card) and had them hemmed...then picked them up and now they are TIGHT, man! I am so annoyed. I mean, they were tight before I though them, but the saleslady said they were fine. But they are borderline uncomfortable now! I also just bought a book about eating gluten free. I don't have an allergy, but, I think eliminating bread, gluten, wheat, and sugar from my diet will really help with my migraines and fatigue!! I'll let you know how it goes. I'm excited to take charge of my health!

You look great in all your photos , but if you are not happy , then go for it, stay healthy and have fun. Though girl if you get much more gorgeous ,I don't know!
I have struggled with my weight forever , comes and goes I swear I have lost 1000lbs over my life , they just keep finding me!!Hence the Jelly Bean analogy

Lins said...

P90X doesn't mess around! If that doesn't help deflate those phantom pounds nothing will! Good luck, sister!

Sydney said...

You look great. I know a lot of my friends stuggled with their weight when we were in highschool. They were envious of me because I have a very active life and high metabolism. Yet I have a friend that is very big (like 300 pounds or more) and shes one of the most gorgeous girls I know.

Don't feel bad, I was going to what is a womans gym and got lazy, because of the nice weather and gave my self, excuses why I don't go. The thing is the older you get the harder it is to take off. You look pretty young yet, so good luck. All I did was cut back on the amounts that I eat!! Eat before 5 p.m. also helps!! Unfortunately, I am that age where it is harder than heck to get it off especially around the stomach!!

Paige said...

I am getting a little sloppy on the cardio at my house too--and I HAVE to get on the stick. And lay off the carbs. Or I will lose all my good progress and I still have a long way to go.

You can do it!

prairierunner said...

I know exactly how you feel! I finally sucked it up and have lost about half of what I need to but I FEEL so much better......about everything!

Faithful said...

I get to feeling that way every summer when I go to put on summer clothes and pull them up over my dimpled theighs that are hanging down around my knees! Or when my upper arms are flapping and I'm not even waving at anybody! You go girl ..you stay in shape..don't get lost in THAT crazy maze of food cravings and coach potato-ing! Because before you know it, you'll grow old.. like me..and then your body CRYS outloud when you ask it to do P90X! gee..I hate myself! "Chomp..Chomp" (eating salad now!)

confessionsofacountrygirl said...

Well I have that problem too! I've been as high as a size 14 pair of pants (and they were getting snug) and now I'm down into a size 10....Still have a ways to go yet too...

Andrea said...

I hear ya on this!!! I get weighed ever week!! The scale tells me how much fat I have how much body mass I have and all sorts of other stuff I really don't want to know. I have so much I need to loose. I go to a weight loosing clinic. I have lost 22lbs, but still need to drop about 15 more to look how I used to. Sigh....and I can so tell when I gain one or two lbs. That is the difference in one pant size!!!

OneCowgirl said...

P90X is a killer! I think I made it through three days! Inspire me. Here is the one thing I've LEARNED - NEVER EVER buy a bigger pair of jeans b/c the old ones are tight. Every time I've done that - I end up growing into them....
Let me know how the p90x works for you!

City girl turned Country Girl said...

Well I obviously first have to say that I think you look great!! But I also know that our own perception of ourselves is what wins in our minds everytime...Everyone I know always makes jokes about the fact that I am skinny but the truth is even though I am mostly skinny I still have belly fat that I hate and is taking control of my jeans size! I really wish I could do abdominal exercises but with my back I can't :(

You keep kicking butt!! Your one heck of a strong cowgirl, you can do whatever you put your mind to!!!!!

Homestay Mama said...

Is that cow stuck in the 'doldrums' too?

Just eat to be healthy, not to lose weight. Just exercise to be healthy, not shapely. Just concentrate on your health, not your looks, and you'll get both in the process. Now I've got to go practice what I preach! LOL

Shirley said...

I hear ya, girl! Self control is the hardest thing to do (it's so much easier to control everything but yourself!) Like Pony Girl, I just cut bread and sugar out of my diet, it's amazing how that restricts what you eat! It also works wonders, within just a few days, my clothes aren't so tight any more....and this is where self discipline kicks in.
