So, I haven't posted in a while. I think I mentioned that I had gained some weight. Well, I finally got on the scale and I have gained back almost HALF of what I worked sooo hard to lose several years ago. So, last week Wifey and I downloaded the My Fitness Pal app and begin keeping track of what we ate. I am SHOCKED at how much I am pretty sure we were eating. WHOA!!! And we have been to the gym a couple times. And in the last week and a half (since I got on that wretched scale at Bed Bath and Beyond just to see what it said), I have lost five pounds.

So, this blog is going to serve two purposes. I am going to use it to chronicle the lovely clothes I am lucky enough to get to wear AND I am going to use it to help keep me accountable on this weight loss journey. I have friends that are doing it with me. I have Wifey who is working to get healthier right along side of me. And I have my own fierce determination. I know that I lost 50 pounds 3-4 years ago and I am POSITIVE that  I can do it again. I WILL do it again.

Here I am in today's outfit.I got this dress on Mother's Day and have been waiting for it to be both warm enough and dry enough to wear it. I don't usually wear long dresses because I am darn short, but this one is JUST the perfect length and the material feels good and I love it!!!

Hello there, lovelies. I have missed you since I stopped posting in the middle of October. Lots if things have changed. Most of those things for the good. We moved out of the MIL's house and into our own huge place. We got a new dog that drives me crazy about 35% of the time. Munchkin started a new school.

And the one bad thing is I've gained about 10 pounds. Blech! I am completely unhappy with this and myself. The wife and I have talked about and decided to change our dinners. We got back to the gym after being gone for approximately the same amount of time I have not been blogging. And we've started walking/jogging as a family. Wifey even bought me some awesome new Nike running shoes.




 And here I am today. I'm having a good hair and makeup day. It helps that I bought new powder. New makeup always makes me feel happy.

Cardi - Consignment (its made by Eddie Bauer)
Necklace and earrings (which you can't see) - Kohl's

I finally got a full night's sleep. And I slept GREAT! That is the first night since my wife was in her wreck that I have gotten a WHOLE night's sleep. I feel sooo much better today!

Today's outfit is brought to you courtesy of having to rush to get the munchkin on the school bus. I had no time for a clothes-tastrophe and so I reached for the one item in my closet that never lets me down....my gray shell!!! I can put it with ANYTHING and it just always WORKS!!! I wish I could wear it every day. I want more of them...in black, brown, pink, and maybe even cream. I don't know. But this works so well every time I need it to.

By the way, on a presentation note, what do you think about the collage views I have had up the last couple days? Like? Dislike? I really like it, but would love to know what you think!!

My dear friend, Melissa, has taken a much deserved and needed break from her blog. This does not mean that I will discontinue participation in her challenge. Breast Cancer is a dragon that needs to be slayed. The only way to do that is get the word out. Women need to know that it is a very serious issue and should not be taken lightly. Men need to be made aware that they are not exempt from this disease. Won't you help me spread the word? Wear pink this month and let their voices be heard!!!
