The trifecta of feel better goodness - sugar, wine, and shopping.

I just order these and I can't wait for them to arrive tomorrow.
I have heard great things about these compression pants. However in my shopping excitment, I forget to research if they make your butt look smaller. Cause I tend to neglect what I don't see and that hasn't served my back side very well.
But so be it, because if I look scary in them I know I can return them with no problem because I love Zappos and Zappos loves me.

For fun -Sliding Into Home by Kendra Wilkinson. Truth be told, this is just a book of convenience. I was starting to worry because I didn't have a fun book picked out or have I been able to get to the library Lolly bought it with some Christmas money while at her dads' and loved it. So we'll see.
I hope to knock these both out pretty quick so I can get back to reading Thou Shall Prosper by Rabbi Lapin. It's been a slow read for me and I know it's a slim chance I could get the rest read this month.

- Lose about 10 lbs - Starting at 118 or it could be 120. I haven't stepped on the scale in two days. I am shooting for 108 but probably would be happy at 112. It's kind of a moving target. The weight charts say I should weigh in around 100-112 but I am really going by how I look and how my (old) clothes fit.
- Stick to a budget.
- Read 2books a month. One for fun, one for some sort of learning.
There are other areas and things I would like to focus on through out the year but I didn't want to put them in goal form and over complicate things. My intention is to post at least monthly on my progress - what's working, what's not working, etc.
Just a word or two on the weight goal. I know that to some my goal of 112 is enough to elicit an eye roll but remember I am only 5' and I am rounding up and 3 months ago I was weighing in at 130and starting to feel the effects. My second bit on weight is this, especially if you are younger, learn to eat healthy, to get exercise, and love yourself they way you are. If you do that weight will not be an issue. I promise you the last thing you want to do is spend the next 10, 20, 30 years focusing on your weight because you'll wake up at 44 and think you wasted a hell of a lot time. There's a great big wonderful world out there just waiting for you and it's hard to enjoy when you spend decades making your weight your focus.
I am stepping off my soap box - older and wiser.
