Into the fight again-getting tipsy as I tip the scale

So tomorrow is pay day and once again I've decided to go back to working out and trying to lose weight. I'm not as excited about it as you would think because I know what's coming weeks of aches, pains, sweat and bad hair days and what seems like immediate facial acne. However.... I was speaking to one of my relatives the other day one of my relatively young relatives and about the only thing they mentioned in the whole conversation was doctors appointments, illnesses and conditions they had going on at the moment. Though felt bad all these things were happening to them I couldn't help but think that every single one was preventable and therefore unnecessary for me to go through.

So tonight I came home came and poured myself a stiff drink and decided on a gym nearby because although I don't need a fancy club, I just won't go work out unless I'm paying for it and 9.95 a month for health didn't seem too bad to me. This move has been long in coming when I went to Lane Bryant the other day, nothing in my "big" size seemed to fit, that's when you know things have gone too far.

So today I'm going through all the clothes that I can't or won't wear and putting them on a Pinterest board called Clothes to Fit into, because frankly I'm too vain to ever go back to wearing boring clothes and let's face it most "plus size" lines only go up to a size 20-22 and I'm currently a size 28/30 *sigh*

I wish I could say I had higher ideals that fitting into the new Marc Jacobs line available up to size 16 or the Michael Kors sheaths at nordstrom up to a size 22, but for right now that is what motivates me, that and being able to kick some serious ass. I'll keep you updated on the workout progress and the new wardrobe inspiration, right now i'm obsessed with shoes, here's some cool clunky favorites you probably still have from the 90's

Overcoming the "I'm too fat for this."

I have not been posting lately due to many reasons, I'm back in school, I'm working full time again and I've been stuck in a depressive cycle in which I overeat, condemn myself for being a glutton tell myself I'll never amount to anything and then overeat again to make myself feel better. Wow, that sound really crazy when I say it like that. But so many women I know have told me the go through exactly the same thing. We lie awake at night thinking about all the terrible things we did to our bodies that day. I had McDonalds and Taco Bell all in the same day; word to the wise don't do this.

Tomorrow I have to go out networking, normally this is a chance for me to increase our connections or strengthen ones we already have and hopefully broker us more deals in the process but really it's about relationship building and frankly I've been pretty terrible at it lately. Why has my performance decreased so drastically? Because I don't think I deserve to be ther…

Plus Size Business Casual- How to do it right!

Becoming a Fashion Grown up-Chubby Girl In the World Style

Ok, I'll admit it I'm getting old, on Dec. 7th of this year I will be 29! (Silent freak out). What's worse is I'm now a grown up with an early not mid-twenties closet. I feel like I've outgrown the major retailers and need to move on, I'm ready for a more mature fashion relationship but I have fashion issues.
 My key fashion issues:

Short leg, longer torsoBottom heavy in all the wrong placeswhat I call "marshmallow syndrome"- If clothes are too tight, it looks like I'm a sausage, if too loose they not shape at all. So does any of this sound familiar? Here's the advice that has actually worked for me over the years and if I had unlimited funds this is the wardrobe I would create, I' a size 28 which is considered "super sized" so for the sake of argument I'll include designers that stop at size 26 but note them with an asterisk*. Nothing is worse than reading a that one page of Marie Claire dedicated to Plus fashion and realizin…
