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
