Rest Day and Trying to Look Good Again!

Yesterday was REST DAY!

Usually I rest on Thursdays but when I woke up yesterday, my body was BEGGING me for a rest day!

 Apparently Jeff's was too, because when he came to my house after work he PASSED OUT!

So naturally I curled my hair while he slept!

I have been trying allot lately to take better care of myself. 

Now that I have lost some weight, I want to look nice too!

Before I started my weight-loss journey, I was notorious for messy buns, sweats and baggy T shirts. 

I never wanted to try and get presentable because no matter what I did, I NEVER felt good enough. 

Here are some pictures from before I started my weight-loss journey:

Leading up to the trip, I was only wearing sweat pants & baggy T shirts. 

I remember buying the clothes I wore on the trip special, because I wanted to look nice!

Then, I got home from the trip, looked at these pictures and wanted to burn every single one of them. 

I couldn't stand looking at myself like that, and went back to hiding my chub under Nike shorts and XL t shirts. 

I'm so happy that I was able to make healthy changes in my life and become a happier more confident person!

Now to make myself look better I have been stalking this blog daily called Cara Loren, because I'm convinced she is the most beautiful person on the face of this earth and I want her HAIR & all her outfits. 

But all that's really coming out of this blog-stalking business, is me realizing I'm too lazy to look that good everyday, have her hair & too poor to have her outfits. 

~ SIGH ~
