I have a Problem...

If you know my mom you will understand my problem....


I've been working hard the last few months with eating right and working out hard.
I've made lots of progress and I'm so proud of what I've accomplished. 
But now my clothes don't fit right and I know I need to buy new ones but I don't want to.

#1 I hate shopping.
#2 I hate spending money on myself.
#3 Things cost too much.

The other thing is we've booked a cruise for December and now I not only need new regular day clothes but I also new some new summer clothes for our trip! I have no problem spending money on others (my hubby, things for me for my hubby and birthdays, even crafting for my house), but when it comes to treating myself I have a real problem. I don't know where I got this as my mom is the Queen of Shopping.
At least I don't have to worry about going to Shopaholic Anonymous.
