Day 24 of 84 - I am so excited!

I had a post almost ready to go today but I decided to keep it short (partly cause it's late and I gotta head to bed soon).

Barry and I have been invited to a Hallowe'en party.  This should be interesting.  Barry is going as a pimp and I am going to be one of his "girls".  We got his costume tonight ... purple crushed velvet ... then we ran short of time.  So when we got home, I went looking for stuff from my closet.  I was looking for a short skirt.  So I tried on a skirt I haven't worn in so long I can't even remember wearing it. Not only could I get it on, I did the button up and while it's snug, I could wear ... and this at the end of the day, not the morning!

I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am.  This has been a long road for me.  I'm nowhere near my goal ... but this is the first step of many.  My goal is to buy a tankini by next June 1st.  Progress is being made.  This has only spurred me on to recommit and work even harder.

I have a floral minidress that I bought probably 14 years ago.  I could wear it then.  I haven't worn it in probably 10-12 years.  I am going to get into that dress next spring.  I am so focussed now on reaching my goals ... I feel so amazing.   But it is getting late so I'm going to say goodnight.

I will leave you with one thing though ... don't give up.  EVER.  Even when you think you can't do it, when life is getting in the way, just focus, focus, focus.  And ask for help.  Don't ever hesitate to say "I'm struggling ... I need help".  And if no one else is around ... I'll be here. 

Good Night!


  1. I ma so happy for you Sandy!! Keep up the good work!!

  2. How fun to discover that you could wear that little skirt! I had something similar happen to me last year when putting together a costume for a party... it's really something to grin about. :-)

    Oh, and I really liked what you said, about learning to fall in love with the process. What great insight, and so true!


  3. Hahaha I love your costume! That is going to be so awesome and I really hope that you (or Barry, or BOTH) post pics!! :P
