Helga, The Fashion Fairy's Disgruntled Cousin
You can't forget the Keys Bandit, as well. I haven't yet figured out exactly what type of creature the Keys Bandit is- most likely a mischevious little fairy who has the strength to take your keys out of your purse, open the fridge door, and place your keys there on the top shelf. It might be time for some night surveillance to catch the Keys Bandit in action.
Of the *wonderful* (yes, sarcasm is an amazing thing) household critters that make our lives just a little more difficult, every once in a while you get visited by an awesome one- The Fashion Fairy, as I like to call her. She sneaks into your closet at night and finds that favorite shirt of yours you haven't seen in months, or, more to my liking, goes in and makes those jeans you haven't been able to wear in years magically fit. Ahh, visits from the Fashion Fairy are amazing. She generally comes around when you start eating a little healthier, or start an exercise routine, or are so busy and stressed you forget to eat. But, whenever she decides to visit you, it's a wonderful feeling.
That was a month ago, so I'm beginning to think my hypothesis was incorrect....
At the moment, I'm stuck. I gave away all of my 'fat pants' when I dropped the weight earlier this year, so, now my visits from Helga just downright frustrate me. I think I'm down to 2, maybe 3 pairs of jeans that are comfortable (one's missing the main button on them), and I have to say I'm just plain confused. I studied nutrition, came up with an amazing plan after my son was born that helped me lose 20 pounds in 30 days- but I counted every single calorie, fat gram, carb gram, kept a journal of what I ate, and exercised 5 days a week. I seriously don't have the motivation to go there again, and my basic understanding of nutrition has me going 'WTH' with my current life. Here's the equation for you:
Healthy Cooked Meals + All of the Time - Any Fast Food = No weight fluctuation, but no weight loss, either
Wait, is this that 'ideal weight' I've heard about? Maybe that's what I've hit. But, no, when you hear 'Ideal Weight', aren't you supposed to be like, amazing looking, when you hit that? No cellulite, perky boobs, stretch marks disappear? That's what I always thought. If this is my 'ideal weight' then me and my body need to have a serious talk.
