So I’m at the point where I need to either loose weight or buy a mumu. You know one of those large dresses that cling nowhere. Like I feel like I am cutting off my circulation trying to squeeze into the close that are way too tight. So of course when I lost weight before I had the bright idea to donate my clothes to a battered womens shelter as I grew out of them. I started at a size 22 and I went down to a size 10 so I donated lots of clothes and shoes. At the time I was thinking, “you can’t regain weight if you don’t have clothes to fit in”. So I was more than happy that I was able to give the clothes away. All I can say is THANK GOODNESS I kept of pair of “fat” jeans. They are a size 16 and are the only ones I can actually fit into as soon as the size 10’s became tight. So here is my problem all the clothes I have are nursing scrubs, one pair of jeans, and one pair of sweats. That is all that I can fit. So everyday I look like I’m pretty much always just getting off work. I have been trying to avoid buying new clothes at this size. I don’t even know what size that is right now. I just know it’s somewhere between not a10 and not a 16. So I am at the point where I either need to really get serious about loosing weight or to invest in some mumus.


Introduction to Not a Thin Girl 07/30/2009

This is my very first blog post here. I will use it as an introduction to me, and just a brief description of what I will be blogging about. I am a 25 year old mother of two small children. I will use this blog to chronicle my struggles and joys as I strive to loose those last 52 pounds. I have recently lost 78 pounds, but I am in no way even close to being a thin girl. But hopefully, soon enough, I will make it there.  With all the issues that come with trying to loose weight, I’ll also talk about my issues in nursing school. I’m on my last year before I become a Registered Nurse.  Here you can read about the stresses and acheviements of a poor nursing student. You all know the saying, “You can never be too thin or too rich” so what happens when you are not even close to being either?!  Im thinking you will end up with something that somewhat resembles my crazy life.  Some days you will find me reminising about how I managed to gain 260 pounds on my 5 foot 5 frame. Other days you may find me lameting not throwing the scale out the window. But regardless you will find that I’m open, honest, real. If you are in the same place, or can relate in some way, then maybe you will enjoy living through this with me.
