The Progress!

Most of my friends know I am on a diet.........I limit my flour and my sugar intake. I have been really determined to lose more weight by the end of the year.......so I only allow myself to have very little flour and/or sugar. My friends Deb & Robert called asking if I wanted to come over for dinner last Saturday. They were making spaghetti......and I actually told them no (spaghetti is one of my favorite meals------pasta is fabulous.) I am finding most restaurants will cater to the dieter. I am also walking in the afternoons. I try to go walking every other day or every 2 days (my rear end muscles hurt very badly right now)! Since I am not just on a "DIET", but a NEW CHANGE of life......I am beginning to see the rewards. Over the weekend, I started trying on clothes that I could not fit into a year ago. I can actually fit into most of my "old" clothes. HipHipHooray! I now have a huge assortment of clothing (I just need someone to iron everything now---anyone willing???)! I am so very excited. Last fall/winter I felt I wore the same articles of clothes every week! This year I will be different.....I am going to wear my "skinny" clothes. Yep, that's right even us big girls have "skinny" clothes! I am looking forward to the time when my skinny stuff will be my "fat" girl clothes! Praise God!

Bring it over, I'll iron it for you. Seriously. For $100 bucks a week. I hate ironing. Just buy yourself some Downy wrinkle releaser and be done with it.

You are expensive!!!!
I will try the downy wrinkle releaser.

One of my pet peeves is to see someone wearing clothes that should have been ironed....it makes them look slopy.....especially if the article of clothing is extremely wrinkled.

Well, now I know what you think of me and my family! (j/k) I refuse to iron!!!!

Heather said...

Me too. I never iron anything. Seriously, until I had to iron the clothes for the consignment show I couldn't even tell you where my iron was. I literally had to go out and buy a new one.

Ladies, I have never seen you two or your families being extremely wrinkled and/or sloppy. I am talking about when someone's clothes is so wrinkled it looks horrible. I went to college with someone who would never iron anything he wore.....it drove me nuts....I wanted to just pick him up and iron him in his clothes.
Heck, I even iron tshirts if they need it.....Maybe I am the one with the problem?!?!

I have never seen you two crazy Ladies sloppy!
