Some of you have been commenting that I look like I have lost some weight. First off, I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. Losing weight is one of the hardest things that I have ever tried to do. I can just think about food and it seems like I gain 5 pounds. If I watch a commercial for food then I gain 10 pounds. Don’t even ask what happens if I smell McDonald’s french fries as I am driving down the road. Lol! The saying about a minute on your lips and a lifetime on your hips is sooooo true! Let me start by telling you that what I am doing is blah, boring, and mundane. I bet all of you are dying to join me on this diet. Lol! Let’s start by saying that you drink NOTHING but water. You eat no bread, no sweets, or anything else that tastes good. You can only eat chicken, white fish, salmon, or turkey burgers for the meats. No seasonings except Mrs. Dash. The only vegetables are green beans, broccoli, and sweet potatoes. Throw in a protein shake and you have pretty much what I have been eating for over a month. Over and over and over again, day after day after day. I was trying on a formal gown the other night that I knew was too small for me but I wanted to see if I thought that I would be able to fit in it by the time that I am going to be in New Orleans. I asked Joe to zip me up and he finally got it to zip. It didn’t look the best but he announced that another 5 pounds and it would fit perfectly. I told him the problem was that is was my ribcage area and that was harder to lose than the belly area. He pronounced that it wasn’t my ribs that were the problem, it was my “back fat” that was the issue. Yes, he is still alive because I had to agree. Don’t you just hate the whole “tough love” thing??? What is not to love about a blond girl with incredible lashes and red lipstick on! LOL!!! I used that line on Joe but he didn’t find the humor in it. I, on the other hand, found it hilarious. I love this Marilyn Monroe graphic t-shirt that I bought on clearance a couple of years ago at Walmart. I am partial to Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. Those two ladies always make me smile for some reason. Marilyn seems young at heart and Audrey seems reserved and refined. Isn’t it funny how you can make judgments based on photos?
The only added jewelry I put on was this pair of large red stud earrings. These candy apple red earrings were a Christmas or Valentine special purchase. I have forgotten which it was. There are several colors in this style earring available but the red was a one-time thing.
I have on my leather Tory Burch sandals. I love these because I can slip them on with almost anything and they look fine. Just the fact that they have that little gold logo on them makes them more acceptable than if they were plain. I know that it shouldn’t be that way but that is the truth. It elevates them to a higher status just because you know they are leather and that they were not cheap. Actually, for me, they were free since I bought them with a shopping spree that I earned but I don’t tell that to people walking down the street. Lol!
This is probably one of the first times that I have worn shorter shorts this year. Last year I was in them all the time but this year, I have been all about jeans. Your style will change from time to time and that is alright, just go with the flow. These shorts are a dark denim in the crosshatch type design. I think this style short is called a city short. I want to show you the brand of these shorts. If you can figure it out then you are a better woman than I am. What is wrong with designers? It is like they don’t want you to know who made their item. How can you tell others about it if you can tell who it is?
Do you ever get excited about life? I am almost vibrating with excitement but I couldn’t tell you why. I just have this wonderful feeling that good things are coming for me and others around me. I am the opposite of Pig Pen on peanuts. I don’t have the rain cloud over my head, I have sunshine and rainbows all around. I am going to be singing, “Blue skies smiling at me. Nothing but blue skies do I see.” What is your song for the day?
