I Got New Shoes



And guess what? They are running shoes!


Aren't they purty? I have never spent this much money on a pair of shoes. Honestly, I had no idea that you COULD spend this much money on a pair of tennis shoes. But when I slipped them on, I knew it was meant to be. That these shoes were destined to join me on this journey of a lifetime.

One interesting fact about these shoes is that they are a size 8. Interesting because I don't wear a size 8. I wear a size 8.5 or even a 9 usually. At least I used to. Apparently my shoe size has gone down since I have lost this weight! Note to all you beginners--take your foot measurements too! Wish I had...



What you are looking at here (other than some stubble glistening in the flash-light) are my crossed legs. My extremely crossed legs. I came in from the track and plopped down on the couch. Pretty soon I noticed something weird. My legs were crossed and the top one was kind of bouncing up and down. You hear that!? My top leg was bouncing, or laying flat, or whatever else I wanted it to do.

My top leg used to stick out at right angle and would not move--unless someone bumped into me and dislodged it. I really hated that right angle top leg because everyone could see the bright orange price tags from Ross on the sole of my shoes. Not any more. Now I've got pretzel-y, intertwining legs that fully conceal whatever may or may not be on the sole.

Come to think of it, wonder why Asics doesn't put the price tag on the bottom of THEIR shoes? For once I wouldn't mind people knowing. Hmm.



This picture is a little weird, but I like it. It reminds me of the time (tonight) that I was running and got really hot. I thought it sure would be nice to take off my jacket and tie it around my waist. At first I didn't even try. I've haven't been able to do that for quite some time because the sleeves wouldn't reach around my waist. But then I remembered--I've lost over 30 pounds!

Now my sleeves hang, just like my top leg. Hollaaaa!

Caaaauuuuutttee shoes! Isn't it amazing how awesome the right shoe can feel. When you put it on you just know they are the ones. I just got new ones a couple of months ago. I can't say that mine are smaller. I wear an 11 in a regular shoe and a 12 in my running shoes!! My mom has always told me I have a firm foundation. Ha.

Awesome job on the leg crossing and jacket tying. I always love to hear your updates.

Ok, those shoes are just too cute! Congrats on the delights of leg-crossing and jacket-wrapping.

My new assignment is to find a bra that fits me right now, as I am shrinking out (meaning around, not necessarily cup-wise) of my bras.

The two I saved from 11 years ago do not support my now 30-something rack. And do nothing for me anyway. Any suggestions, as I plan to keep shrinking? Anyone? =)

Awesome, Keelie! I am visiting via Stacey's blog. Congratulations on your successes. ASICS is an acronym for (translated) a sound mind in a sound body. They have been a cornerstone for many a good run for me over many years. Yours are beautiful!!
