So a while back I talked about an event I went to last year, and had my photo taken to see what I looked like from a different perspective. While that year casual attire was fine, I felt that maybe I had gone too casual, and I suspected that I didn't look outside how I looked in the mirror. Even checking with someone else, it didn't feel right. The first top left photo is that picture, and when I saw it... by God, what was I thinking?🤣🤣🤣 Seriously, what the actual...😵 Looking like I thought I was the "ish" with $2 at a thrift store (not downing thrift stores - some great deals can be found there, but the point is...😣 to that look). I was so mortified, I determined that in attending the next year's event, there was no way in heaven or hell I would look like that, period. Even then, I immediately went out and bought new clothes and upped my #exercise and changed my #dietandeatingregime. I had already lost some weight from previous years, but in 2017 my SO was seriously ill, and I guess I ended up so focused on helping him get better that without fully realizing it I had neglected myself.
The thing about gaining weight sometimes is you don't always notice the difference. I exercised pretty heavily from the time that I was a kid. School sports like basketball in elementary and middle school, and I would work out for hours before and after school in high school. The list goes on. But through years, my weight started to fluctuate drastically, and I didn't always realize how much weight I gained or lost at different intervals.
For me, that photo was a wake up call. Not just the weight, but the way I looked overall. I'll admit, my preference for dressing has largely become comfort over style and dressing to go to the grocery store is different than dressing for an event, but that doesn't mean when I go out I want to look like I bum cigarettes at the corner store. I dislike being pressured for fashion, but I typically do know what I like and what looks nice on me -- it's just a matter of budget and body.
It's not always easy, but trying to eat better and maintain exercise regimes is an important aspect of why I look for #organics.(More in comments.) #weightloss
#TheWire पत्रकार सुकन्या शांता "पद्धमश्री नामदेव ढसाळ" स्मरणार्थ आयोजित समिष्टी- २०१९ मुंबई विद्यापीठ कालिना येथे वक्तृत्वातून सध्याच्या परिस्थितीवर आपले मत मांडताना.
#theWire is definitely up my alley. Think this depiction of the #drugScene is overplayed, #dramatized for the screen. Nope. And it’s happening right outside your door. I watch this stuff all the time. Guys pulling “things” outta their cheek, counting way too many singles, signaling people from blocks away, look-outs; ten year olds working up the ladder. It’s pretty wild and I know I aint crazy. If anything, the dealers here are more organized. But their main problem. They rip people off all the time. I see buyers walk away and look at their shit dissatisfied more often than not (least the white users who still haven’t completed ruined their lives(still have homes)). Some #addicts have standards bruv....
If you prey off your buyers. You lose repeat business. #economic101 | Whats interesting is they are primarily slanging crack on the fax, after all this time. But it makes sense. It’s more addictive, doesn’t last as long. And way more expensive. Find a meth habit junkies. Save you some cash down the road. #lol#OrganizedCrime#BoyzInTheHood#GanstaLife#DrugIdiots |
And what’s funnier about here. The cops don’t do shit. It’s a fucking #FreeForAll
My first bike ride in DTown. I pull up to a 7-11. There’s a homeless dude (right by the main entrance) with like an ounce of #mexWeed on a fucking piece of cardboard. No bag. No nothing. Just a piece of cardboard...🤣... I do not make this shit up. Hey dude! Ten bucks for this. No? Five bucks? Well, get me a beer and its yours....Ahh...maybe next time.
Love this video from a couple months ago bc 1. It shows how generous Ted is with her cleany kissies 2. It shows how gentle she is and 3. You can see her beautiful face and features so clearly and perfectly at the end as she stares up at the camera 😍 (had to repost bc it went without the Q ooops) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
QOTP: other than on Instagram lol, how do you spend your “free” time or leisure time?
A: teddy would say napping Obvs. And I agree napping is one of my top choices but truly, and I have NO shame about this, I love TV. I believe it is one of the great art forms of our lifetime. There is some incredible tv out there if you take the time to find it. Currently rewatching season 1 of Jack Ryan on amazon so I can watch season 2 (my memory is so poor I literally don’t remember what happened in season 1 🤦🏻♀️). Definitely would recommend it though. It’s like watching an action movie but with intelligence and heart. So anyway yeah my free time (Which is all my time since I had to leave my job on disability) is streaming various tv shows. The best show ever made imo, and I am well versed believe me, is THE WIRE from HBO. No other show has matched it. But my favorites, which is distinct from best, has to be Friday Night Lights, Parenthood, and Gilmore Girls. Each of these shows has heart and will make you FEEL something. And that is what art is supposed to do. Move you in some way. Amazing what humans can experience by WATCHING others pretend at life. Absolutely amazing. Anyway rant about tv over 🤣

I’ve never met someone who has watched it. But I’ve heard good things from six degrees. #UndercoverNarcotics though? Sounds like a dream. Lets give a go. #TheWire | The fact that im breaking out i rhyme. Often means a #goodTime | I’m excited. If its good. Like 4 solid days of #BingeViewing#Howls
