Weigh-In and New Clothes (Day 549)

Hi all!

Sorry that I wasn't able to post yesterday, it was crazy busy, but I'll get to that in a bit. How is everyone doing today? Happy Sunday! It's a bit warmer here today but it's snowing currently, so that's a bummer. I have so much to talk about today! I weighed-in today and have to show you all of my new clothes/shoes. :) Be warned, this post will have a TON of pictures, so get prepared. Let's start with my weigh-in.

Starting Weight: 315
Last Week: 286.2
This Week: 282.8
Total Lost: 32.2 

That's right, I've lost 3.4 pounds this week! And that puts me at a total of 32.2 pounds lost total. I have finally hit that 30 pound mark and I intend to keep losing this time around (last time I hit 30 pounds lost, I gained weight). Oh and yesterday I went shopping and I'm officially wearing size 20 pants and 1X in tops from Shopko (In their sizing, that's a 16/18!) And I know that some of you may be thinking those sizes are really big, so how can I be so happy to be wearing those sizes? Well let me tell you, I started out in a tight size 24 pants and 2-3X shirts. This is amazing for me! I'll show you some of the items I bought yesterday through pictures. :) Just want to say sorry in advance, some of the pictures will be small because if I blow them up they get blurry. :(

Willow Bay Lace Tank
I love these tanks, they are perfect for wearing under other clothing or during the summer you can just wear them alone. I bought 5 of them, all different colors, this blue, a peach/coral, black, a yellowish green, and purple. :) I love them so far and even better, they were $10 off each one.

Polka Dot Dressy Tank Top

My mom spotted this top and I knew I needed to try it on, so I did and I fell in love with it. If you don't know me, I love polka dots. They are pretty much my favorite pattern, so I was really excited when I tried this on and it looked good. Even better, I found some capris that go perfectly with it. This makes me want warmer weather even more so I can wear this top and those capris together. :)

There was no picture of this shirt on the website but I wore it to church last night, so I took a picture of myself in it. Don't mind the freakishly dirty mirror and blurry picture, but you get the point. I love this top, it's super cute and very springy. :)

Now onto the pants/capris/shorts that I bought. The first pair of them, I wasn't able to find a picture online, but they are cute! Blue pants with small white polka dots. :) The only way they could be better is if they were skinny jeans, but beggars can't be choosers.

Denim Colored Capris
These capris are awesome and super cute! :) I have them in this shade of blue and then green (the green ones are the ones that go with my polka dot shirt). They are super comfy and the colors are sweet.

Colored Bermuda Shorts
Here are the shorts that I bought, except mine are a lighter blue, but alas there was no picture of that color online. They hit me right at the knee (the only type of shorts that I'll wear), so I can't wait until summer to wear them and my capris.

Colored Denim Jeans
These are the pants I bought, I have these red ones and some purple ones. :) Honestly, the purple one's are my favorite but I'm still trying to put outfits together for those.

Last but not least, my awesome new shoes. I did need some better, supportive workout shoes. I'm so glad to finally have some workout shoes that are more feminine (since I have freakishly big man feet, thanks dad!). I haven't officially worked out in them, but I did wear them yesterday while I was shopping with my mom. Tomorrow I'll get to workout with them for sure, because it's seeming as if today a workout is not in the cards, we'll see though.

Oh, and I have decided that if something ever happens to Abid and I, I have figured out who I will marry. I'll move out to LA and marry Darren Criss. :) How gorgeous is he?!? Plus, he plays violin, guitar, piano, mandolin, harmonica, and drums, has a freakishly amazing voice, speaks fluent Italian and a few other languages, writes music, oh good Lord.... this man is amazing. He is sarcastic, goofy, passionate, and from the interview's I've heard, he's a romantic. :) He's a few inches shorter than me, but who cares? Abid's shorter than me too, so it's okay. This is the man I will marry if Abid and I don't work out. :)

Oh and I finally broke and got a twitter account (mostly so I could follow Darren's posts :) ). So I'd love to have you all follow me on Twitter.

Good Lord, I've pretty much written a picture book for this post. I warned all of you though. But it's time for me to put all of my focus into Once Upon a Time. :) So until next time.



  1. Love all of the clothes!! I also am now in a size 20 pant and am THRILLED. I can't wait to be in 18's though because you can find those in almost any store. I'm on Twitter too, but haven't quite gotten the hang of it! lol I just like to follow famous people that I love. Darren Criss is amazing btw!!

  2. Oh you got some super cute spring/summer clothes! It's still WAY too cold and snowy here for me to think about spring clothes shopping. But I totally do the same thing you do and buy items I like in multiple colors, otherwise I regret it later only have one of my favorite shirt or pants.

  3. 32.2lbs! That is awesome, Sara! Love the polka dot shirt!

  4. Awesome!! You go girl!! Keep up the great work :D
