i'm thinking of leaving VFFs behind, because i'm super hard on my shoes and. . . i think they are not lasting a full year at this point. Sad, really, because I love them. But, IDK.
we shall see. I might just bare foot all summer, and then winter, figure something out.
yeah. i'm just about there my self on the ball of one of the feet. left foot, below the second toe. seriously, sadness.
the real issue is that i am very hard on all of my shoes. the only shoes that i've had that have lasted a long time are my keens. they are about 4-5 years old and now are finally wearing out. and while they are a wide, comfortable foot bed, the reality is that they are not the same (or as comfortable) as VFFs. of course, VFFS are not comfortable on a wet, cold day here. That's no fun at all. then my feet are just cold!
i'm considering huarches for summer and then a pair of mackenley boots -- hawk has a pair -- and they are apparently very solid shoes. well, he beats the hell out of them, and they keep on going. but, i don't really have any clue as to what i want to do.
i just don't like having cold feet. but whenever i'm indoors, i am not wearing shoes. . . so. . . hmm.
I hate that I no longer need to use my expensive MAC foundation because my skin is so clear I dont need it.
I hate that I need to replace 30 pairs of hideousTarget-brand maternity undies because I'm actually starting to look sexy in normal, Lacey undies.
It sucks that I have to either iron my clothes or throw them in the dryer with a damp cloth for a couple of minutes every morning because I can no longer rely on my fat rolls to smooth out the wrinkles.
Stinks to have DH hug me and our arms go ALL the way around each other...gives him more 'free hand space' to tickle me silly.
Hate it that the DH is taking over some of my old favorite sweats and t-shirts... I really liked them!
DH went from >360 lbs to 289 and I've only lost 45 lbs -- why do men always loose it so much faster?
Started 7/5/11 at 274 lbs
Now 214 -- that's 60 lbs!
Goal 160 lbs -- last time there was in junior high!
"The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money." (Margaret Thatcher)
The freezer contains beef mince, lamb's heart and liver, pork chops, a chicken and wild salmon, and there's bacon and free range eggs in the fridge, and don't even get me started on the vegetables, and how am I supposed to decide? And it's no use saying 'eat more than one' because I know one full meal's going to keep me full for 5-8 hours.
Never had this problem when I ate pasta for lunch every day, and then wholewheat muesli for a snack a couple of hours later - and I'd still be hungry again by the evening meal.
And then there's the whole embarrassment of getting stared at for running up the stairs instead of using the escalator, or absent-mindedly picking up things that are supposed to be far too heavy for me. It's just not normal.
My wife ordered me to stop wearing my wedding ring as it was falling off too much. Not allowed to get it resized until I finish losing weight. Not allowed to buy new clothes until I finish losing weight. So I'm just a poor guy bouncing around the place in baggy clothes with no wedding ring. And I have to go shopping more often as all my food is fresh - as a guy I hate shopping. And I'm always carrying my 20 month old son back from our walk as he's run out of energy and I don't take a pram (stroller) because I can now carry him for miles. Woe is me.
