1. This is the third batch of cupcakes I’ve baked in three days.  I have gone through three boxes of butter and two bags of powdered sugar. Today I tried a different homemade funfetti recipe from How Sweet It Is, and I must say, they were so much better… so buttery and delicious, completely worth every single calorie.

2. I have only allowed myself to eat a half of a cupcake for each batch I have made, and oddly enough, I felt completely satisfied.  It is a weird feeling, but I think I like it.

3. This outfit made me feel fierce today.  That black dress is new (9.95 from H&M!) and I actually had to buy a medium because the large was too big! I couldn’t believe it and I still sort of don’t.  That belt had been sitting in my closet for almost two years because I used to not be able to comfortably wear it on the last notch.  I can now wear it all the way on the first one and still be comfortable. [Outfit: Caridgan – JCrew; Belt & Necklace – Banana Republic; Dress – H&M; Shoes – Marc Fisher bought at Macy’s]

4. Sometimes I don’t believe that certain clothes I own are too big on me now or that I actually fit into the sizes I do in stores.  I’m trying to perceive myself in a positive light, but in general, I still see a girl who is 25 pounds heavier in the mirror.

5.  I truly believe the reason I’m succeeding is because I am not denying myself anything.  I have honestly not felt deprived in the past 6 months and if I have a craving, I will give in to it but just control my portions (for the most part, there are always going to be exceptions).

6.  Seeing a picture of these cupcakes was necessary again.

7. I am always going to pick this cupcake over bunch of spinach… just saying 🙂


Do you have any confessions today?

    My confession…I'm running out of junk drawers, I've been so unorganized and now everything is a mess. I just throw stuff in there when I don't feel like putting it away.

  6. $9.95 damn girl! LOVE H&M! And you look amazing so proud of your success 🙂
