I’m thrilled to announce that my change in lifestyle (food habits and exercise) has helped me lose 11 pounds so far. My clothes are really loose and I feel better physically already. I have until Christmas to meet my goal of 20 pounds and I was thrilled until yesterday afternoon. I went to work and kept busy during my eight hours and then decided to go grocery shopping at Wal-Mart and pickup some other items. I’m sure you have seen the horrid pictures some people have posted on Facebook about the people who wear clothes that are way too small and things are showing that shouldn’t be showing. Well folks, I’m here to tell you it’s time to stop posting those pictures. By the end of my day my jeans has become so loose that I thought I was going to drop them at any turn. It’s hard to push a buggy while filling it with groceries and holding up your pants. I left the store without completing my shopping for fear showing my fanny in public!! I ABSOLUTELY DID NOT want to be the next photo you see on FACEBOOK!!! I was trying to hold off on buying new clothes until Christmas but after that ordeal it’s time to go shopping for the next size down in jeans which would be a 14 😉 I’m thrilled with the weight loss and thought washing my existing jeans in really hot water might save me some money and maybe two sizes in jeans. This near tragedy in Wal-Mart is just not worth the embarrassment!! Keep me in your prayers and leave those cameras and phones turned off, PLEASE!!! More updates as I reach my goal!!
Country Girl Through & Through
I'm a country girl from the western part of Virginia in a small community of New Castle/Craig County. I've lived in Craig all my life-eighteen years with my parents and siblings and forty + years with my wonderful husband.
We have two children, a boy and a girl, and two grandchildren, all of which we love very much. We live on a 500 acre+ farm that has been in my husbands family for over 200 years. We are raising beef cattle, chickens, rabbits and a couple dogs.. We grow pretty much all we eat or harvest from the farm and I can't imagine living anywhere else.
I love to create, craft, quilt, read, write, decorate, crochet, candlewick, bake, bow hunt, cook, garden, farm animals and walking/hunting in the woods. I love sharing our home with family and friends.
I hope you enjoy the posts that I enter on my blog and hopefully will be helpful and/or fun to all that read it.
