It is working…
Nekid Friday weigh-in was a success, 261 this morning. Now I have to admit I haven’t been a strict as I have been, but I am working it. I went to Old Navy and bought myself an outfit, (yes it will shrink with me.) I am feeling pretty positive about this and not making it too nutty on myself.
I have been thinking a lot lately about body image and clothes. I always hide my arms. I don’t like them, I never have, but this summer I am being a bit more liberated. They are out there. Nothing indecent but the occasional tank top has been known to grace my body. I am actually thinking of picking up a few more when I head over to the States next weekend for shopping with my gal pal. It occurred to me, who am I fooling, whether my arms are covered or not, is not going to change anything. I am still going to be fat whether I hide them or not, however, I am going to be cooler and not have the distinctive farmers tan, when I set them free. In my humble opinion, and apologies to all the sun avoiders, tanned fat looks much better than the glowing white stuff that I have.
My new job is challenging and fun. The people are all very nice and welcoming. It helps that I have worked in the building for four years and know most of them. They seem happy to have me aboard and it is proving to be a fun experience. This is the fastest week I have ever had in this building and I am hoping that time continues to pass quickly so I can leave and do the things that are really important like spend time with my delightful family. I have such a big love on for them all lately. Everything that Mini Bean does either makes me laugh or shake my head in exasperation, she is three. Lil’ boy Bean is a delight, how I ever managed to produce such an amazing child is beyond me. He is smart and funny and full of a real zest for life, learning and love. Partner Bean is a delight. I think we are in love. I have always loved him, but I am in love with him lately. He is rocking my world. (How 80’s was that saying that just flew out of my fingers? LOL!)
So I am heading out for an action packed weekend. Camping, a baby shower and listening to a pal play old country at a Legion. Should be good times. I hope the weekend doesn’t go by as fast as the week did.
Take care, stick with the challenge (all you AFW followers) and most of all be happy.
Bean, forgetting my name, as new information pushes out the old.
