Can I chose the area where I want to lose weight?

Good evening beautiful people!! Well I called and I called it right. I said I would probably lose the weight in my fat feet and dang if I didn’t.  I was at work walking to the file room when I notice my feet was sliding like crazy in my sandals.  I look down to make sure they were still zipped in the back and notice that each foot was sitting back more at if my shoes were to big.  I am currently in 9 or 10 size depends on how the shoe is made.  I like the ability to be able to buy prettier shoes because of my fat little tree trunks.  However right now I want lose weight in my thighs, back fat or bat wings area.  But if we were able to pick and choose where we lost weight it would be so awesome.   But in the real world that is not possible…. So I need to get out of la-la land.


I have never really been a shoe girl until I lost weight. Plus I can’t go pass a heel that is over 3 and half.  Any higher and I might have to get my new hip replaced.  Plus you will not see me wobbling around and I can’t walk.  I like to be able to walk as natural as possible.  Especially since my orthopedic surgeon made my leg longer with my new hip. I am currently in love with..Lane Bryant and Catherine’s stores.  Their shoes and boots are catered toward wide feet.  Plus they are so comfortable and they have pretty designs that are available in my preferred heights.  The shoes are not to high priced also.  I love the ability to find boots in my size also.  Check them out.  Trust and believe these stores are not paying me to say this.   Have a good day beautiful people!!

Peace, love and happiness!!

From a size 28 to a size 14 and I love it!!! 

Hello beautiful people!  I decided to do a post about what size I am currently wearing.  I know a few people may be looking at this post and thinking really who cares.  Well for one thing I care.  You are looking at a woman who was a size 28/30 before my Rny gastric bypass.  I have posted my previous picture at the bottom of  this post of me at my highest weight 342 pounds.

As you may know a lot of stores just recently starting selling plus size clothing.  I remember when most stores wouldn’t go pass a size 24.  I mean really I couldn’t only go to Cato’s, Simple fashions (which has closed down) they were the cheaper store. Then there is Lane Bryant and Catherine’s  stores which are really expensive and the way my budget is set up I couldn’t go there to much.   Shoot a pair of pants run $40.00 and up. So I was a regular shopper at Cato’s  and Simple fashions.  The stores staff knew me by name because I went in their stores so much.  I really, really love Simple Fashion because they carry sizes all the way up to a size 34.  This threw me for a loop because I didn’t know how to go to a store and buy clothing that was to big for me.  They weren’t the best quality but they were so cute.  My big butt WAS wearing a size 28/30 then. I still don’t understand how they closed down because they stayed pack.

My only issue with Cato’s is that they are located at every shopping center near a Wal-Mart.  Which means you have twins everywhere.  Because everybody shopped at Cato’s.  This also caused issues with the larger sizes because they sold out of them so quick.

Now my all time favorite store is Ashley’s Stewart!!!  I love everything about this plus size store.  They carry sizes 12 all the way to size 32.  Here is the kicker they design clothing  that is sexy for the curvy plus size woman.

Check out the picture… That shirt is from there and I love the color and design.  I am hooked on the cold shoulder shirts and dresses.  I go through phases of what I love and will purchase several in different designs and colors but are similar in style.

The pants are actually from Lane Bryant store.  I got them off of their clearance rack for $9.99!! The regular price was $69.00.

I also love Rainbow Shop stores.  Their clothing is so cheap and cute.  Not the best quality but if you have as much clothing as I do.  They will last a long time.

Check out there stores and their website..I don’t mind twins in cyberspace.  Because we may never see each other!! 😜😜😜😜

Smooches beautiful people!!

Love, peace and Happiness!!

Don’t laugh at my big head!! Lol.

Disclaimer:  I am not being paid by any of the stores that I mention in this post.  They are just my favorite stores!

I am a Shopaholic….. Admitting it is the first step!

Good morning beautiful people!  I have come to the conclusion that I am addicted to shopping.  Ever since I lost my weight after the surgery I have become a shopaholic.  Even before my surgery I like to shop however now that I lost all this weight is gotten worse.   Before I had my surgery I weigh over 329 pounds and I mean let’s  be serious.  You can’t find a lot  of cute  and affordable clothing  in that size.

However, now I am constantly looking at the sites or stores that I like. I get their emails, and texts… they got those little bad boys setup where it is like one of your home girls are texting you.  And man don’t  let me learn about a new store and they have really pretty clothes. I will start shopping there also. Now it hasn’t interfered with me paying my bills but I have two closet full of clothes. I could wear a different outfit for probably three months straight and still have clothes left that I haven’t touch. My son told me Sunday that I didn’t need anything else to wear and I shouldn’t be buying anymore clothing or shoes. I was hanging up two new dresses and two new shirts when he told me this. I had to take a step back and look at myself. I do have a lot of clothing and I got to get this habit under control… Before it gets out of hand. I keep making excuses that I am a cheap shopper so I am alright. This is true….. I love my local goodwill until they brought in new management and changed everything up. The clothing was arranged by colors and sizes. However now everything is just separated by shirts and pants. So that help me tremendously because I don’t have the patience to look through all that for what I like. But I am in love with Ashley Stewart’s, Cato’s store and Lane Bryant’s and Catherine’s shoes.  (I was not pay to say these stores names)  What bad about the shoe  thing is I never really cared about shoes because it was so hard to find shoes for my wide feet.  But I lost weight in my feet and went from a size 12 to a size 9 in shoes.  So now I am able to find pretty shoes that fit my wide feet.   Keep me in your thoughts as I ignore these texts and emails about their sales.  GOD be with me.

Smooches have a blessed day.   Check me out in my Easter dress from Ashley  Stewart’s …I thought I was high stepping.
