Tuesday Evening Post!

Hello to all my "Skinny Sisters"!!

Well, I am happy to report that I am feeling sooooo much better today. My tummy is back to normal and I have not cried once today!! This is the first day in about a month that I havent cried and that feels like a victory of sorts for me. Yippee!!

I went to work this morning. I got dressed @ home as usual, went to slip on my favorite Levis and can I just tell you....they feel so comfortable now and are starting to get roomy!!! They were so tight on me for the longest time I wasnt able to wear them, and if I did wear them, I had to wear them with a sweatshirt to conceal my tire that flowed over the waistband, but not today....nosirree!!! I wore a cute little top and those Levis and I felt great in them. No snausage feeling!!! As I have told you all before, I work in a suregery center and we have to wear the provided scrubs for sanitary purposes. So I went to work today, I grabbed my usual scrubs (XL pants & a large top) and I almost couldnt believe it when I put them both on....they are getting really big on me!!! It was the BEST feeling ever!!! I like the roominess now but I think another 10# and I will be reaching for the Large pants & a medium top! Ya know, it really is true what they say....NOTHING FEELS AS GOOD AS THIN FEELS!! Now, by no means am I thin, but you get the jist of what I am saying.

So I am excited to usher in a new year and I cannot wait to watch my transformation in 2011. I am really going to focus on getting me healthy emotionally and physically. I want to look HOT for once in my life and I feel bound and determined that this is gonna be MY year to make it happen!! Oh boy....Look out!!!

Thanks to everyone who made such kind comments while I was going through my hard times this month. I have one more thing that I know is going to happen this month that is going to be sad for me but it is inevitable and I just need to make the phone call & do it. I have been a Sales Director with Mary Kay Cosmetics for 7 yrs. I led my unit to the prestigious $300,000 Circle of achievement in 2006 and we were the #2 Unit in our National Area 2 yrs in a row. Well, the past year, my unit died. I have been trying to resurrect the dead for the past 14 months and I am coming to realize that I am not Jesus and I cannot make them rise from the dead. If we dont meet our production goal of $4,000 this month, I will be forced to resign. As of today, we have a little over $2,000 in and I am not putting the rest in myself without the sales to back it up. It is a heartbreaking decision as I love the company and I love my unit, but I think the time has come when I need to bury the dead and move forward and focus my energy on getting myself healthy again. I am going to have to make that call on Thurs unless a miracle happens between now and then. Say a prayer for me....its not going to be easy to do.

Well, I better get going. Have to pack lunch for tomorrow & get ready for bed.
I love you all so dearly!! Thanks for being my friends!!



  1. I have no idea how Mary Kay works but I will pray you are right where you are meant to be in all of His decisions! I felt bad when I stopped coaching for a swim team here years ago, it was a very hard decision to quit, and spend more time with my family, and it turned out to be okay. You sound a whole lot better too! Going into 2011 getting skinny, Yippee!

  2. Sherri, I am so glad for you and your clothes fitting better. It is such a great feeling isnt it? I am really enjoying clothes much more now then the past but still have problems with pants fitting me right. (small waist and bigger below) Anyway I am so glad you are feeling better and I have a feeling that 2011 is going to be your year. I am sorry to hear about your Mary Kay but you might enjoy a little extra time for yourself. Happy New Year my friend!

  3. It sounds like you are feeling better. It's nice to "hear" the happiness in your voice again. It seems like it was just yesterday when you were talking about your too-tight Levi's and looking forward to the day when they would fit comfortably.

    I'm with Kasey on the Mary Kay issue. I'm sorry to hear that things might be coming to an end for you, but I do pray that God has you right where He wants you, and that place is where you will be most happy. I'm looking forward to your 2011 transformation! :)

  4. Aww...thanks girls!!! What sweet comments! I am definitely praying for guidance on what to do with the MK. IT is a hard decision to make as it has provided alot of income to my family for the past 7 yrs.

  5. Glad to hear you are feeling better Sherri, no one likes the flu. Happy New Year to you!!
