I found that if I closed my eyes it was easier. I didnt have to think about it. But I managed to work up a sweat. Hey dont be dissing. I am out of shape. We all know it. But my goal is to not lose weight but to maintain a healthier lifestyle so I dont get diabetes. If I lose weight in the process then that is great! If not...at least I am getting my heart a pumping.
Diabetes runs in my family hard core. We all have eating issues. And cant deny that...although some of us do. It just is true. It is what it is. It upsets me when I tell people about diabetes and my family. They dont seem to understand. I told 'someone' about our family history. They have diabetes in their family too. BUT, there are two types of diabetes. At least in my head.
1. Skinny people who have insulin problems.
2. Big people who only have insulin problems because of their food addiction.
My family is number two. The people tell me "oh just eat healthier, excercise." youll love this one...controll yourself....Well let me tell you something! If your a herion addict. You take it everyday...and everyday your want more and more. You cant stop until its taken from you. You go nuts and just "need it". That is very simaliar to food. Better 'sugars'.
You can buy a crap load of junk food for 10 bucks at any store...especially discount stores. But if want fresh meat and veges, 10 buck buys you very little.
It's just rediculous!

I set out in September to find the perfect halloween costume. I am tired of being a witch, a clown, a farmer. I wanted something unique. More than one party to go to this year. I wanted it to be perfect!
Ha. Ha. Ha. Let me tell you what! Businesses think their consumer are a size freakin two! Every place I have looked has a wide selection of "unique" costumes. Everything and Everything you could possibly think of, lined the shelves. But look at the size. Guess what its not there!
The largest store of halloween costumes in my area had hundreds of different costumes. And like at least 25 different catagories. Wall to wall of accessories, wigs, jewlery, stocking, belts, decorations, everything...except...nothing a size higher than 14! I am not kidding.
So I asked for help...She ran around the store with me telling me...'oh here is one. Its not the size your looking for, but the way it is built, it has "flare" "room to breathe"' I was like get real! Everyone knows halloween costumes run small. A size 14 is like a size 12! America is big. And getting bigger. Accomadate the population! Not just tiny teens. Adults have fun too.
I told her I was going to throw a sheet over my head and be a ghost. Now there is "flare" for ya.
My next journey...online shopping. So many sites to choose from. Twice as many costumes. I thought this is great...a wide selection...ha ha ha. Standard size 12. Oh my freakin goodness!!!! There it is...the plus size button. In it, a whole, maybe, 30 costumes out of 300 on the site itself. But...Finally. Need I remind you at this point its like four weeks before halloween. I searched and searched. And there it was. The perfect costume. I was going to be a Vampiress. It is a deep red, and black. Beautiful fabric. Not the half plastic stuff. Lots and lots of detail. It looked so real, it was like a hollywood costume. A bit pricy, but I was willing to spend up to 60 dollars on a costume. Going to three parties, I thought I would get my money out of it.
I clicked on the order button and wouldnt you know....no size listed. Oh there we go a size chart. To my disapointment...size XXL is a flippin size 14. And all out of stock. I wanted to scream!!!!
So here I am 9 days till halloween and one day till my first party and still no costume.
I guess I will dig through my halloween box and put on my witches hat and yet again go a the typical, boring, old, half dressed, witch!

I am so very new at this. I have been wanting to do this for a long time...Have been pondering whether or not it was worth my time. Time and time again I have come back to this same thought...Its fun and it gives me the rights to say what I want to say. So as you can tell I did it. Hopefully my future posts are more interesting than this.
