Little Black Dress - Progress pics

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

well I borrowed a dress from my MIL, it was hanging in her closet and is like a size 10.... I tried it on today and was like... wow is that me? ........ Its crazy to me, I don't feel like I look that small.... I guess pictures dont lie though. :-)

I would like to also say that the wii fit said that I am a normal weight this morning!!! Yay! I started out at morbidly obese and now I am normal... that is the best feeling ever. I know the wii fit weighs me a little less than the regular scale though but it was nice to see it up on the screen and see my fat mii go to a nice skinny mii. lol.

Here are some pictures from today



Wii FIT BEFORE - COME A LONG WAY


HEALTHY WEIGHT!!!


ME FEELING HAPPY ABOUT IT


HAVING FUN BEING SILLY




ME LOOKIN SMEXY :-)

    The total weight loss is still a bit to get use to, I have to say it has not sunk in all the way.... I look at these pictures and am just kinda shocked and amazed.... when I say "who is that?" I am not exaggerating at all... I really feel that way. Its nice though, Its like when I use to have dreams about waking up and being thin... it feels like a dream. Never thought I could actually do this, but I pretty much have now... only a few more pounds to go till I am where I want to be.

    the collar bones were kinda weird when they appeared. I was like "WTH are those?" I have never really had them before because I have always had the fluff... I have to say that collar bones, hip bones and how freakishly small my wrists have gotten have been a bigger shock than anything else... I guess because there is no extra skin in those areas so they just don't look like me. lol. Its a nice change though.

    The Wii Fit is indeed cruel. I've gone from obese to being resigned it's going to tell me I'm overweight every day for the next several months, along with the annoying sound effect and the visual of the expanding tummy. I look SO forward to seeing "normal".

And you look great in the little black dress - congratulations on a job incredibly well done!

Dinner Food Blog

Monday, September 27, 2010

Well I went out last night to eat at Ruby Tuesday. I tried to make smart choices but the fact that now serve cheddar biscuits kinda threw my plan off. I was not expecting that. Next time though I will know better.

I thought I would take a few pictures of my food to keep me on track. It's surprisingly easy now that I have my iPod touch. The newest version has a camera built in so all I have to do is pull it out and click.

After all my good intentions last night I still ended up spending 22 points on dinner.
That is my whole daily allowance. I didnt eat too bad earlier in the day though so I only went about 10 points over. I'm going to plan out my meals and stick to the plan for the rest of the week and I'm hoping to post a food blog every day this week too. I'm hoping that I can load the pictures straight from my iPod to the blog.... I guess I will find out in a minute because I am typing this on it right now.

Well here is my dinner from last night. I didn't catch a picture of the biscuits they were moving too fast towards my mouth. Lol.

2 1/2 cheese biscuits
Large salad
1/2 portion grilled salmon
1/2 portion chicken fresco
1 serving white cheddar mashed potatoes
1 serving steamed broccoli

(and it turns out I can't load the pics directly from my iPod so I will have to do it from the computer....... Sigh. So I will add pics in a few minutes)

    It's always good to have the really good yet bad foods. I had a pay day candy bar this weekend and I have to say it was totally worth the 5 points it cost me! It's not an every day thing though. We all need a treat sometimes. : - )

    As long as you manage the rest of the week you should be fine. I make homemade cheddar biscuits but only for Thanksgiving! They are really bad!!!!!! But really good if you know what I mean. It's a rare treat and we just enjoy it for the day.

LOSINGJESS 9/27/2010 12:50PM

    Both of the entrees me and hubby got were the lower cal. Meals but with the salad bar and everything it threw the points off. We normally split meal.

Have you looked at the ruby Tuesday menu lately? They change it often. I don't know the points value of what the mashed cauliflowe was when it first came out but now it's really not far off from the potatoes. I use to get the cauliflower thinking it was way lower in points and found out there is only a 1 point difference between the two.

The cauliflower is 3 points and the potatoes are 4, according to the current web site nutrition info.

    You know you can see their nutrician guide for low calorie foods. I usually order bella chicken and instead of mashed potatoes I get the mashed cauliflower 0 points and a veggie side no butter. It would have been more reasonable points. Those cheddar biscuits are to die for.

Remodel so far

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

Here are a few pics to show what I have done so far in the kitchen. I still need to paint the walls though so bare with me. The walls are going to be green by the way, so just imagine them that way.... more pics when I am done.



Kitchen when we moved in... ugly puke pink walls, yellow counter tops and cruddy white cabinets, which by the time I repainted them started to peel very badly.



another pic of cabinets and counter tops... me preping turkey last year for christmas



cabinets painted and starting to take out sink and counter tops



old sink



New counter tops in!!!



New to me, second hand sink.... Big and deep... yay.... only $25 bucks !



New back splash :-)

............

more to come, cant wait till I am finished...... Im so proud because it was all mostly done by me too... hubby helped with cutting and installing counter tops and sink though... that was just too much to do alone.

Ouch!

Monday, September 20, 2010

My whole body hurts today. The muscles in my back, my shoulders, my thighs, my calves.... pretty much everywhere.

New kitchen counters are in though and I almost have a sink.
My kitchen has basicaly been out of service for the past 3 days so my eating has been really horrible.... I have used all my 35 weekly points eating snack foods because i have been hungry from not eating the right kind of meals. Basically everything I have been eating has been foods that wont cause much if any dishes. Frozen pizzas, frozen meals, chips, ect... Its been pretty bad.

Hubby just has to hook up the plumbing to my sink and then I will pretty much have a functioning kitchen. Although we will most likely start in on painting the walls and ceiling in the next few days.

I keep telling myself its gonna be worth it.

.... Now Im gonna go fall into bed
