First off, I got in 30 minutes of walking yesterday morning after I dropped Aiden off at the bus stop. There is not a good place to walk on my street since there is no sidewalks and the road is very busy.... but there is a rather large church accross the street from my house which has a parking lot that extends the whole way around it.... so I walked the perimeter of the parking lot for 30 minutes, it was well lit, away from the road and the parking lot has servalence cameras... so that gives someone a little less motivation to try and kill me and throw me in a ditch somewhere. ..... (yes I think about that when Im walking... even though the crime rate is not high here I am alway cautious, expecially before the sun has come up)
I felt good afterwards though.
For breakfast I had an egg white and sausage english muffin and a large orange
Lunch time I had a lean cuisine steam bag meal.... tastes good, good amount of food and only 5 points per bag...... and a small salad
I had a glass of root beer
For dinner I had tomato, chicken and cheese frittata w/ a baked sweet potato & some steamed asparagus.

.... kinda stopped tracking yesterday so not quite sure how much this was... pretty sure i was not over though.
took a pic of my outside fall decore if anyone was interested in seeing
I bought these pants 10 years ago at a thrift store when I was 300 lbs. I have talked about them up here before. I have almost gotten rid of them sevral times because deep down I knew that I would never be small enough to wear them... It just was not possible.
Well guess what... I was wrong! I put them on this morning and they fit! I could stand to lose a half inch or so in my thighs but other than that they fit perfectly. They arent really my style anymore, they are like a punk rock type plaid pant but Im gonna wear the hell out of them, just because I can!
It makes me a little sad to know that I almost got rid of them because I dident beleive in myself enough to know I could do this. I guess that is the difference between being ready to do this and not.
I had that glimmer of hope in there somewhere though, or I would not have saved them for this long.
The bigger of the two pair is a size 22... When I started I could not fit size 22 anymore, I was squeezing my big butt into a size 3X maternity pants because I could not find jeans that would fit me.... I suppose I was around a size 26... so my before size was actually much bigger.... :-( ... I got rid of the 3x maternity pants because its hard to find maternity clothes at that size and I knew someone else would most likely really appreciate them.
Have a great friday... Im going to be rockin my size 12 skinny pants today so It will be a good day for me.
