Reason Wednesday

"You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you," Dale Carnegie

Ummm, hello! Bonjour! Yeia sas!

Imagine the surprise when I go to write a new post and I have 12 comments from the last one. My first thought was that I got spammed. But then I was all like, does spamming even happen on blog comments?

Drazil is such an awesome lady - as almost all of you already know. What I love most about her (and what draws me most to people like her) is that they speak their minds. Their dirty and demented minds :) Love ya D!

Thanks for joining me on my journey - I love the pressure!! I love the accountability. I fear the letdown but the solution to that is not to let you down (or me for that matter).

So, without further ado, my reason for losing weight on this wonderful Wednesday:


I was out and about (oot and aboot for you American folks) in the shops yesterday. I bought myself a few super duper cute bathing suit cover-ups for lounging by the pool (since I have made the decision to not shy away from swimming in pools this summer).

There were a few things that did not fit properly and I refused to go up a size mainly because in a couple of weeks and a few more months, I won't fit into those same clothes. So, why waste the moola? Am I right?

I heart shopping. When people ask me what hobbies I have - shopping is the top of the list. I don't shy away from stores - even now - but shopping with less of me on me is going to be insane in the membrane!

Once again, thanks for joining me lovelies!! I truly appreciate it and look forward to getting to know you all.



  1. Just found you thanks to Drazil...I look forward to following you on this amazing journey! One step at a time...

  2. I just realized you are Canadian! WOOOOHOOOO!

  3. I used to really get some satisfaction shopping for bargains but lately haven't really felt the urge. I'm wondering if, for me, it was just another type of bingeing. I could still get carried away doing some rummage sales, I think.

    I do enjoy buying some sweet clothes though! And I'm starting to notice my shirts not hanging right on me, so I'm looking forward to some shopping soon myself!

  4. First of all, I love that quote at the top of your post! Secondly, I love to shop too and let me tell you after losing just over 100 pounds, it's a hell of a lot more fun now! :)

  5. Awww - so happy you are happy!


Speaking without thinking is like shooting without taking aim...I'd love to hear from you - just be nice to each other - and me :)
