Giving Gifts and buying jeans

Oh what a week… This week seems to be taking forever. Probably just because I’m excited to have five days off coming up soon. Plus, you know, Christmas.

On Wednesday night I got together with a friend to exchange Christmas gifts. I gave her fuzzy pyjama pants and a Photo Calendar with pics of us and other friends and our trip to Disneyland. It was pretty awesome. I got some of my favorite soap and lotion, and a couple of Chritsmassy Candles… Peppermint Chocolate bark and cookie…. they both smell so good.

Last night I visited another friend and her husband and their 10 month old daughter. I brought wine for my friend chocolates for her husband and an awesome noisy pink owl toy for her daughter. They all loved it so that was a success.

I really love giving gifts. Especially homemade gifts. I love crafts and I am a crocheter. This year I made some really great gifts for my family and friends.

It’s funny how as you get older it switches from “I CAN’T WAIT TO OPEN MY PRESENTS!!!!!!” to “I really hope my Mom likes the gift I got her” I always love seeing people react to my gifts… even if they have a bad reaction ha ha. At least I tried right?  

Food wise and weight wise it has been a really good week. I have been faithfully tracking everything and I have had my fitbit on since Wednesday.  Which just makes me so much more aware of how much movement I get in a day. I’m thinking there might be some take out this weekend because my Dad gets here tomorrow, and that tends to lead to a lot of “Let’s order pizza”. But I still have all my extra points so that will get me through that.

Today I’m wearing a shirt that my Mom bought for me last year. its an ugly christmas sweater shirt, that is really quite cute. Last year it was so tight on my stomach and boobs, it was not good. I wish I had a picture actually. I was at my heaviest last Christmas. 276lbs. Since then I have lost 28.4lbs. The shirt fits me perfectly this year… bordering slightly on too big. It’s amazing what a difference there is.

Thats the kind of stuff I don’t think about all that often, but my coworkers keep bugging me about my jeans giving me a saggy butt…  They are definitely looser now. I can slide them off and on without undoing them. But until they are completely unwearable I won’t be buying new ones. I don’t want to spend a bunch of money on expensive jeans when I know I’m just going to lose more weight. I did buy a new pair of skinny jeans, but they happened to be on sale… I managed to get them for twenty dollars. I was pretty happy about it. They look really good on me too. I think I might have some smaller sized jeans in my closet or my drawer. I should check it out and try them on. If not, like I said, I’m going to wait until these are completely unwearable, then I will venture out to the either a store known for being cheap or a thrift store and hopefully I can find something there that will work.

Today is my long day at work. I’m not exactly excited about it, but oh well, such is life. Just have to deal with today and tomorrow and then I get a couple days off, then I work Tuesday and Wednesday, which is a short day thanks to Christmas eve, and then I get five whole days off!! Hurrah!! I can hardly wait!


One thought on “Giving Gifts and buying jeans

  1. I’ve got the same standpoint on jeans as you do; wait until they don’t fit at all. Jeans (unless you can get them cheap) are pretty expensive these days! No sense in spending a fortune on clothes, especially since you don’t plan on staying that size for very long! I also am the same way about gift giving. It is funny how when we grow up we would rather give than get. I love giving gifts!

    Christmas and the vacation will be here in no time!! Keep up the good work!
