New Couch and Feeling good.

We got a new couch today…woohoo! Our other couch was something we got from friends, and it was really comfy but not quite the slim modern style I like. It also was not enough seating when people came over, so they would end up sitting on the floor or chairs that weren’t comfy. Anyways when I started work last week I noticed this awesome sectional we carried on clearance for $550! So I made the decision that with the little bit of money we could make selling our current couch and the extra money Im getting for the Wedding Planning Im doing that it was the perfect purchase! We went today and picked it up, got it home and assembled it in no time! Of course we still have our other couch sitting in the entry way, but I LOVE the new couch! Mr. Gaunt and I can both lay on it and watch a movie (which we did tonight – I Love You Man) and although its a bit of a challenge to work around a sectional, I think its going to be perfect!

In other news I hit up Old Navy today and tried on some pants they had on sale for $19, and yah know what I think Im almost the exact size I was in High School! Yay! I bought these cute grey pants that I love and I almost need to go down ANOTHER size, but I think these will fit for another 15-20 lbs (which is about as much as I can ask for in pants). A friend of mine mentioned shopping second hand to save money on pants, I totally agree with this and I have bought tons of used shirts (although even when I buy new shirts I get the $2.99 ones cause I’m cheap) and cardigans, but Im not a size 10 and the pants in my size are often gross dated tapered pants. I just have never been able to find pants that really fit used, so I will continue to look but I just cant rely on used pants. But I felt amazing about myself all day! I felt cute and stylish and really just happy at how far Ive come. Im so close to entering new territory in my weight loss, a size and weight that I have never been and Im just so excited! You know you have good days and bad days and some times you need to toot your own horn and be happy with yourself and know things can only get better.


Can I Just Not Wear Pants?


Mr. gaunt needed new flip lops after he left his in a hot car and they kind of warped weird. We decided to hit up the Castle Rock Outlet mall to see if we could find any good deals.

Ive been putting off shopping now for a while because I wanted to make sure that I was down a nice comfortable size before getting any new pants. But since we were headed to the mall I figured I might give it a shot.


I am NOT comfortably down a size! Yes I can fit into the size smaller and button them, but they are still too tight in the waist….ewww…they fit fine standing up but sitting down sucks. I also have a stupid shaped body that makes them gap hugely in the back waist and be tight in the front. DAMN YOU JUNK IN MY TRUNK!  Anyways I found a pair of jeans at the GAP on clearance that errr…kinda…fit. I bought them to add to my pile of “in ten more pounds” pile. Gross that’s stupid, who the hell wants to buy new clothes they cant even wear?!!

I got a number of cute shirts though at Banana Republic that I LOVE! Oh PS: how irritating is it that I can fit perfectly fine in BR shirts but their pants don’t even come CLOSE to my size… FU BR!  Oh and that they have an entire PETITE section! Yeah cause that’s the problem with women these days, they are just too damn small to fit into normal sizes! WTF!

Moving on, The whole pants sittuation was a huge self esteem jump backwards. Who cares if Ive lost 23 FREAKING POUNDS I cant even find any pants that fit! So I guess I will just need to work out extra hard so my “in ten pounds” clothes can move to the “fit just right” pile. So lame…so so so lame.
