Why is it that when I really need to find a new outfit for something special, I just can't?

Why, when I go shopping, do I end up feeling really bad about myself and instead of making me want to work harder on losing weight, I just want to eat more?

Why is it, when all I am looking for is a positive attitude from my mom while trying on clothes or trying to find said outfit, she can't see that I am really upset, but instead, thinks that I am picking on her... which I was not! I was picking on myself!!!

Why, when I find something that I think is so cute, it looks like CRAP on me?!?!

Why, when I really need my best friend there... it just isn't possible(at least not right then... I just got off the phone with my bestest friend, and it makes this post seem unnecessary, but I am posting it anyway... Thank you Terah, if you are reading this, you are my best friend and always make me feel better!).

Have you ever seen a larger person(and I mean like... size 28+) and think... 'Wow... that person is so beautiful, put together and so confident!' ?

Why can't I be like that? Where does that person get that confidence from? I have never felt like that! If you know me in my in real life, it may come as a surprise to you(or maybe not) that... I am as far away from confident as the Sun is from the moon. I wish I could feel better in my own skin... I wish I could feel prettier on a daily basis.... I do not EVER want my daughter to feel like this.

Dear Lord, Please give me the strength to be the confident, positive, strong momma that I need to be for my precious little girl.... so she does not ever have to ask, WHY?

I am so excited!!!!

Ok, so I know... I have been gone again, for a while. We finally got the money back to purchase our new computer and it is still going to be a few more weeks, however I will be back soon with some updated pics!
But, for now... just one picture, of my new laptop!!! Yes... I am getting my very own laptop that I can not believe is going to be all mine!!! And... the best part: IT IS PINK!!!!!

Holy Moly!!! Is this not the cutest computer ever????? I can't wait!!! The cover a designer cover by OPI: Princesses RULE!
And... to celebrate this Awesome new computer coming into my life... I will be giving away a super cool gift basket to pamper one of my favorite people... one of YOU!!!
Stay tuned... a giveaway is happening! Once I receive my brand new computer, my first blog post with my Awesome new computer will be all about my giveaway!
I know that I have been alluding to this for a while, but I promise... this is going to be fun!
So.... let me hear you.... who is looking forward to a Pamper Me Pretty giveaway?????
