I'm going to start taking better care of myself;

     Okay, I guess you should know who I am. My name is Alaina, but call me Lanie. I'm a 21 year old who has one cat-Ratchet, two dogs-Rogue & Le'a, and two turtles-Feisty & Leonardo. I enjoy a good box of wine--yes, box--and a great plate of spaghetti. I do not enjoy sunburns or prune juice. 

Now that you know a little about me--onto my story!

     I was dropping my Honda off at the service department yesterday, the steering wheel peeling really bad, and as my husband dealt with all the paperwork I waited outside enjoying the breeze and doing a little people watching. About 10 minutes in, this little Honda fit pulls up and out pops these two women. One was an older woman--who was driving--and the passenger was a younger Latina looking woman. She was gorgeous, this Latina. She had beautiful ombre'd hair, wore the right clothes, and carried herself well. I was only looking at her for about 15 seconds, and that's when I knew that I needed to step it up a little--for my sake. I am 5'10 with massively curly hair; that I usually wear up in a pony tail. I have recently become more womanly, if you catch my drift (ie. gained weight) so all my clothes aren't really fitting me that well. In my family we got big thighs and I could basically watch mine get bigger. Anyway, I don't ever really go out and shop and find things that fit me that well just because I don't like dealing with a lot of other people. But just the way she carried herself made me feel the need to get over that. 

So I set myself a goal: Every paycheck buy one pair of pants, and one shirt that fits. 

     I don't make that much money but I think this will work. I need to wear clothes that fit me, and not wear overly baggy stuff like I have been wearing. I'm not huge--I'm only 160 pounds; but I'm bigger than I used to be. Going from a size 2 to a size 6-8 in about a year and a half. I'm still in denial okay? I will not be focusing on the weight aspect of my body too much. I'm focusing on embracing what I have now, and eating better. So I figure, what's wrong with spoiling myself every paycheck?

So what do you think? Would going out every paycheck and finding something that fits help you?
