In the past, I haven't been much of a belt wearer. Mostly cause my pants were so tight in the waist already who needs a belt to keep them up? I got this belt because my pants were getting looser. I didn't take measurements back in May when I started this blog, but I can report that I have been going down belt holes. I am officially on the last hole!
Since I am still not quite used to wearing belts there may have been a wardrobe malfunction or two. I've caught myself a few times undoing the belt and forgetting to undo my pants. Funny thing is the pants sometimes come down with a tug without me having to undo the button. That never happened before :)
I am going to need some fashion advice or maybe it is body shaping advice. I would really like to wear belts more - with sweaters or dresses too. I love the look, but my torso is a hot mess. My waist seems to be in the wrong place for anything belted. And the dreaded muffin top is a serious obstacle to getting the belt in a good place.
I am aching to wear more fashionable clothing. How can I make my figure cooperate? I am sure there will be improvements as I lose more, but if I remember correctly (from long, long ago), my waist has always been an issue. I know "they" say you can't target specific areas for weight loss, but if anyone out there has a tried and true tip I would be willing to give it a shot.
I am working on my goals for the Halloween Challenge hosted by Skinny Geek Within and One Crazy Penguin which begins on October 1. The list gets longer by the second. This always happens when I start to make to-do lists. I can't stop thinking of things that I want/need to. The list becomes so ridiculous that I can't possibly accomplish everything or worse yet become so overwhelmed I accomplish nothing. So I am looking at this phase as brainstorming and then I will choose the final goals - challenging, yet reasonable is the key to my goals for this challenge. And I will be the one with my goals posted on the refrigerator.
The challenge includes avoiding Halloween candy until it is actually Halloween. I take that to mean not buying candy to give out then eating it all before Halloween and having to re-buy some to give the kiddies :) I am not anticipating that being the most difficult part of the challenge for me. I am more interested in stuffing my face with these babies...and to make it worse they make them for every holiday/season. Bad, bad party cakes :(
Evidently I am not the only one with the snack cake issue. This morning I saw this "Walmart wall of fall craziness." If I eat all that, I would actually be the Great Pumpkin. Yikes!
Be brave out there. "Pumpkin-palooza" will be over soon.
