Wow. I can't believe it's been almost six months. It's definitely getting easier.
There was some conversation on the list about how we're the weirdos because we're not eating “normal” food. Is that twisted? Fast food, junk food, fake food, chemicals, additives, food colorings, indigestible fiber, that's all considered normal. But eating traditional real food makes us the odd ones.
Anyway, today was my last day off work. My husband and I went into town and I decided to try on a pair of pants since my regular pair are getting so loose on me. I bought a new belt last Thursday, 38″ was the length, so I thought the jeans might fit me as they were also 38″. They were regular fit Lee jeans. In the past, I've had to wear the stretch version.
I also decided to buy a few new tops, and I got so lucky! A bunch of women were huddling around two racks of clothing, and I just knew something was up. They were all marked down to one dollar!! So I got three sleeveless shirts, all fuchsia, mostly for wearing at home. A couple of other shirts and a jumper style dress.
It is really nice to not have to look for a 2X. You know, I'm no big clothes person, but I feel it is true the larger I've gotten, the less selection. And also the clothes just aren't very pretty. I've also noticed it is difficult to find clothing that fits at the second hand stores. I never had a problem when I was smaller. There were many items to choose from at smaller sizes.
Anyway, the tops I got were all 1X or 16-18.
Also, while we were in town, we happened upon a Farmer's Market. I was able to chat with a lady who is close to the area. I dearly wish I was retired, for I would love to have been able to ask her if I could volunteer to help her in her garden. She has about ten acres, but she is also being ravaged by all the hungry desert critters. We had a nice talk about how terrible they are, how they eat everything right down to the nub, or they chew through the arms of the butternut squash!
There was a guy there that sells a couple of beef a year, and he doesn't do hormones, antibiotics, etc., but he does feed grain. Hubby pointed out the liver which was marked one dollar, so I snatched it up. I figure it's got to be better than the regular store liver.
For the vegetables, I bought a bag of spinach which was $3, a thick red bell pepper for $1.50, 3 large beets with greens for $1.50. I was tempted to buy the zucchini squash but passed on it.
I took a nap today, so that's why I'm up late. I better get going as 3:30 gets here very early.
Until we meet again.
