For now I'll settle for torrid's 'retro chic' section ;)

What is your current style? Who are your fashion icons? Does your weight keep you from dressing the way you would prefer? Do you have a dream outfit you'd just love to wear if only you were thinner?

Don't get me wrong, I wear things that I like, but I don't love them. The things I love things like these dresses, from, are hopefully in my near future!

I think this one is my favorite:

I think my emerging shape would fill this out nicely ;)

I half wonder if Rachel from Glee gets her clothes from ...?

...and here is something a little different and flowy.

This is just me dreaming about the day I can wear the things I love. What about you?

Oh...and one last


  1. first one is super cute... I was in torrid yesterday

  2. I love retro clothes too! I don't know exactly what style I fit into but I like put together looks. I hate frumpy clothes. has amazing clothes! Christina Hendricks looks amazing in that picture.

  3. I have my old 80s Night corset in a very safe place, waiting for the day that it fits again :)

  4. Awesome dresses! I am still trying to find my style. I used to wear very boring clothes (but great makeup!). Now, I am having a great time trying on all kinds of clothes that I never would have considered before.

  5. I love each one of those dresses. I would dress that way if I could. Right now, I am buried in frumpy, unflattering clothes. I need a makeover! But won't allow myself one until I am making real progress on the weight loss.

  6. I've always been into the goth/emo/hottopic look since long before we had any of those stores even in the are. I remember driving over an hour to get there (or rather having my Mum drive me, lol, man I feel old now). I can't wait to comfortably fit into those clothes again. I have to shop on because they don't carry the 2x/3x in store (or if they do they sell out super fast. I used to shop at Torrid when we had one at Robinson but I heard it's gone now and they don't sell too much dark stuff anymore.

How Intuitive eating (did not) work for me

So I have spent roughly the last year and a half or more trying to lose weight by eating intuitively. I'm not really great at it. I have lost 30 lbs in a year and a half, it's moving at such a snails pace that I have finally decided that the only thing that works for me is tracking, and even though in my head I know I won't possibly do it forever, I have to go back to it.

So, Joey and I are tracking again, so far so good. It's only been a few days, but it at least hasn't been a struggle. I figure we will stay where we are calorie wise and after about a month and hopefully some loss (not being too focused on the scale though, it's been my downfall in the past) we can reduce our calories a little bit at a time.

I know this is the right thing to do, but I feel kind of down that I did so poorly with intuitive eating. Then again I probably wouldn't be fat if I were good at that sort of thing. :P Here's to being "On Plan." :D

Also, my job has finall…

I Was a Fat Bride

Our wedding pictures are the first thing you see when you walk into our home. 

Joey and I have been together for over 22 years. We've both gained and lost a lot of weight over the course of our relationship. Then we regained, and re-lost, you know how it goes. We got married on our 19 year anniversary, which is in March.  We had decided to get married just four months prior. So after what our friends teased was a 'brief 19 year courtship", we decided to just go ahead and do it. I know there are a million blogs and articles about losing weight for your wedding. This is not one of them. I had four months to lose weight. I don't really even remember what was going on, but I had NO desire to diet or attempt to lose weight and so I just...didn't. Joey lost a bit of weight so he could wear that fancy vest. I appreciate the effort, he looked handsome in it. :)

We thought we would never get married. We didn't see the point, we kind of still don't, and luckily, be…

Fluvia Lacerda....or, life's short, have fun.

So I just read this post about 'letting it all hang out' in the summer, by Fluvia Lacerda, a Brazilian plus size model. She. Is. Gorgeous.

First, let me say, my 'thinspiration' pics are always plus size models. I have no desire to be skinny. I want to ROCK my curves.

Anyhow, this is what the lovely Fluvia Lacerda looks like:

So she writes this blog post about how you should accept your fat body and don't care about the judgements from other people, etc, etc. I'm thinking to myself, she looks amazing, who is judging her? Then I google her and find a 'celebrity weight gain' site that is talking all kinds of smack on her 'chunky arms' and her 'expanding waistline'. I want to cry. Seriously. If you can look like THAT and still get insulted by these people (who are the equivilant to me, of frat boys yelling "fat bitch" at me from their porch) then I just hate this world. 
I ASPIRE to be as 'fat' and 'chunky' as Fluvia!…
