Fat Chick vs. Food - Week Eleven

This week rocked everybody! I have hit my stride, I have seen the light, I am in total control of my little universe and I am super awesome.

I ate very well and managed to haul my fat ass off the couch to get exercising a few times this week. I had a little diversion while in Saskatoon for a meeting on Friday that came with quite a bit of rich food and wine, but I managed not to indulge as much as I would have a few months ago.

To make my fabulousness complete, I have accepted a fantastic new job! I start in the next couple of weeks, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. It’s a great opportunity for me, and it will give me a chance to actually work during the day. Trust me, that fact alone is enough for me to turn into the ‘good morning!’ guy from the Viagra commercials.

My new job will have me out and about a lot more than I ever have been at my last job, and therefore I am going to need some new clothes. I have a lot of ‘work’ clothes now, but I am happy to report that most of them don’t really fit me anymore. I have found myself having to actually roll down the waistband to keep my pants up so they don’t end up around my ankles when I walk. I’m pretty sure the people walking behind me in the hallway can do without the FoN full moon.

So….operation new clothes! In the next few weeks I am going to go buy myself some new ‘yay, you lost weight!’ and ‘yay, you got a new job!’ clothes. And I’m NOT going to the fat girl stores. I might do a little nah-nah-nah-nah-naaahhhhh dance as I walk past them in the mall though.

I lost three more pounds this week! That brings the total poundage lost to 18. I have 42 lbs to go.

Oh my gosh, that is amazing news, all around! 18 lbs is phenomenal.. you are an inspiration. I will never forget the high I was on going out to buy more of my former size (4) after I had my son. Have fun!!

And though I'm sad we won't have more snarky receptionist blog posts, congrats on the new job!

Very cool about the weight loss. And congrats on the new job, too!

I go back to my job in May, and I also need new clothes. But sadly not because of any kind of weight loss. I still haven't lost my pregnancy pouch. I have to shop at the big girl stores, at best. But I hope to avoid having to buy from the maternity stores. *sigh*

A new job and a new wardrobe, you rock! I'm still shopping in the fat girl section but hopefully soon I'll remedy that situation.
Great job!

Good for you!

Thanks for coming over to see my ramblings! 99% of the people who read my posts don't have blogs themselves and e-mail me instead of leaving comments since they just don't get the thrill. So, when I see someone new comment, I get a little more excited than is probably necessary.

Congratulatios on your weight loss too! I'm going to have to break down and join HASAY one of these days!
