Tall Drink of Water

I am so freakin excited about this post!  I have waited for a long time to be able to share this with y'all.  When I started my weight loss, I picked a certain number that I thought that I would be able to achieve.  That was 175.  My reward was a new pair of heeled shoes.  I haven't been able to wear heels for so long.  My knees hurt constantly and worse when I put them on 1+ inch heels.  I love shoes!  I love to see a nice pair of legs in a pair of hot shoes!  It sucked to not be able to wear or feel like I could pull off a pair of sexy heels.  Well, you all know that I made that 175......in fact I am down 25 more!  Gosh!  Maybe I should make good on that reward. 

I called upon a very cute friend to take me on this adventure.  She was amazing!  We went to her favorite spot (DSW) and there was a sea of beautiful shoes as far as the eye could see.  I was completely overwhelmed.  She lead me down each aisle, we made some choices, and she even carried the boxes for me!  We cat walked.  We spun.   We tripped.  We laughed.  What a great time!  I bought two pairs and am so glad that I finally rewarded myself.  I sure hope that I won't take so long when I make my final goal (5 lbs baby!!)

WOWZA!! What a hot tamale you are!

Love them - especially those tan ones!

I've yet to get to DSW, but need to. I have a serious shoe fetish.

And finally, I swear that everytime I see you, it's another 5 ellbees or something. You are literally shrinking right before my eyes. You look great, and I am sure you feel great.

I think shoes are a FABULOUS reward! What girl doesn't like a new pair of shoes? You look great and I am so proud of what you have done. I know how miserable you were before you decided to make a change and I know that you have made the right choice. Congrats!

You look FANTASTIC, Carina! I feel the same about shoes and my inability to wear the awesome kind! I have a long way to go in my weight loss, but you are truly an inspiration to me! Thank you for sharing!
