Fashion on a budget??

I’ve been having a hard time as of late. Working two jobs money is still tight. A lot of my clothes either don’t fit me (at this moment) or are so old they’re dying.

I found thredUP and found I can sell and buy gently used or even new with tags clothing at a cheaper price. I also avoid the malls since my time is limited between school and two jobs.

They have a great variety of clothes and I even shop for my son at times.

I was worried to post about the mom on a tight budget BUT this is actually smart of me. Currently I have a bag with old items barely worn on consignment and items are selling. I’m taking the money from those and getting myself new clothes. New to me.

So if you’re a mom on a budget check them out. They’re making this transition with weight after my heart attack easier.

*I wasn’t paid by thredUP to do this. Just a FYI they work for me right now.*

Items I’m selling:

Items I’ve bought:

I Feel Pretty…Oh So Pretty…

You know the jingle. Today though I felt pretty. This doesn’t happen a lot but I’m working on self acceptance. So, I lived in the moment and felt good about me. It’s a nice feeling. It’s growth.

Water oh Water oh My…

It hit me today on my quest to a healthy PCOS and rare disease lifestyle that I’m not drinking enough water.  I used to drink a ton of it but now, since my heart attack in 2016 I seem to enjoy Diet Coke and Coffee as drinks of choice for me. Before you worry, my blood pressure from the type of rare heart attack I had and rare diseases I have is very low.  Like super low sometimes so we will just chalk it up to “Kat needs to find better ways to stay awake”.

So…today I began my water quest.  On a future update I’m hoping I will be keeping to this exercise of so much water and I’m so getting steps in when with clients because I’m running to the restroom quite often.

Oh the newness of this weight loss journey and living with PCOS after 40 and two rare artery diseases.  I’m going to make this fun.
