Jamie's Weight Loss Diaries.... #3 Weigh In....

Thursday, February 03, 2011

Thursday is Weigh In Day...I weigh myself ONCE a week. I can't jump on the scale every day, all times of the day, when I feel fat, before a date....too much on my medicated brain. lol! Once a week is good for me. I'm a born again scale person. I'm  just now embracing the scale. I avoid it all thru my teens and twenties....

Down to 227lbs

I felt that I haven't lost much, mainly because my period was coming on! lol! I feel bloated and what not and to see a pound come off that, I'm happy.

I'm still aiming for 40lbs by 12/30/2011 but something inside of me wants it off by the summer. I'm physically miserable in the summer.... hot, sweaty. PERSONALLY, I feel its the weight gain. I want to this to be a breezy, smaller sized summer. But if I try to lose it all by May or June, is that too fast? I need to stick to the plan.

My size 20 jeans are too big!! I have to wear a belt to keep them up. Plus, I working out my workout plan, crafting it myself just for me, I'll reveal it when I think its working. lol!

Still working on my food choices.... I was watching a You Tuber and I remember her saying that it took her six months to figure out what would work for her before she really started lose the pounds. Its only been a bit over a month, I'm still in "trial" season so I'm beating myself up over a -1lb loss. -1lb is better than +1 a pound.:)

FOTD: Wet N' Wild ColorIcon Trio in I'm Feeling Retro....

 Now....I'm not a makeup artist....just a girl who loves dont take my application too seriously. I just wanted to show my fam how I'm working out these new Wet N' Wild ColorIcon Trios. I know that everyone has been raving about the pigmentation and colors but notice something today while playing with I'm Feeling Retro ( shown at the top)....

The consistency of these shadows are very much like those of the shadow palettes you buy at the local  BSS for $2.99. Its that powdery, and sometimes hard to blend texture. My NK HD shadows are like that. Vibrant colors but hell to blend out and they most of the times, if it not always a shimmer/satin.

Just wanted let you guys know my opinion on these....The colors are slightly original but the formula is has been done. Probably the best thing about them is that they may be dupes of other higher end brands and they are cheap.
 I'm wearing all three colors in I'm Feeling Retro....I'm not feeling that white shimmer color. The blending the  texture is horrific. And who would put that on their browbone as a hightlight??
 I have something like the iridescent pink color in my NK HD eye shadows ( #3024, check the link)...but I think it a MAC dupe of Romping ( which is MAC Too Dolly palette that I sold at the Blog Sale) or MAC Pink Pearl Pigment.

Come to think of it...the whole palette is very Too Dolly...excluding a black shade and MAC Yogurt.

The green shade.....possible dupe of MAC Parrot. I swatched it and compared it to my NK HD shadow in #3006, which is a Parrot dupe...very, very close.

I actually used a matte black shade to deepen the outer corner and crease.

Its an okay palette...but not original....more FOTDs coming soon!!
