Today, I bought my husband some Cinnamon pita chips that he likes. I looked at the nutrition label, saw a serving was 7 chips for 140 calories and thought " huh, well I can fit that in today". SO I counted them out and had my 7 chips, put it in my tracker and went about my day.
It suddenly hit me: Not only did I read a label but I made an informed decision about whether to eat it or not AND I counted out a portion and left the rest in the bag. I didnt even think about eating more.
So apparantly, this is the kind of girl I am now. A girl (who is almost 49!!) who reads labels and thinks about her food choices. I am no longer a girl who sits down with the bag and eats until I am full (or beyond) and mindlessly consumes snacks because they taste good.
I have truly changed. It just now hit me. Wow.

~*~ WTF??? Entry Card- Template for 9/15-9/19 ~*~
Me, just a few weeks ago.
Starting Weight: 247.2
Measure your Waist -48
Measure your Hips - 53
Measure your Thigh -28.25
Measure your Calf -17
Measure your Upper Arm -16.5
Measure your Boobies -49
Current BMI: 40.7
During this challenge, I have a general goal of getting my BMI below the 40's. I started at 50. I also want to fit into size 22 Jeans (or beyond)
My biggest challenge will undoubtedly be staying on track with my excercise.
My nutrition goals for the next 10 weeks will be focused on staying within my range.
My cardio goals for the next 10 weeks will be focused on walking further each week until I am up to 2 miles consistantly.
My strength training goals for the next 10 weeks will be focused on my arms.
My rest and flexibility goals for the next 10 weeks will be focused on doing more stretching.
PART ONE - DIET & EXERCISE
Between now and 9/19, I am going to try to play tennis at least once. I have never played tennis. ever. but I want to!
Between now and 9/19, I am not going to bake and eat anything unhealthy!
These 3 excuses will be unusable for the duration of this template:
The weather is not allowed to derail my excercise.
A party is not allowed to derail my eating well.
My hormones are not allowed to derail my life in any way, shape or form.
***BONUS CHALLENGE- ADD UP HOW MANY CALORIES YOU *DRINK* THIS WEEK! (NON ALCOHOLIC AND ALCOHOLIC ALIKE!)
Ok and yes, I hear the Captain calling!!
You can motivate me by staying in touch.
PART TWO - THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
This week, take the time to do one of the following just for yourself.
A. complete a fun project
B. start a fun project
C. brainstorm ideas for something you can do just for yourself over the winter, something that will take a semi-long time to complete. - Like make your own new bag, or put together a family photo album, or redecorate a room, or start a journal, or make a quilt, etc
D. Make a list of things you loved as a child but have not done or participated in for a very long time. See which ones you can incorporate into your grownup life.
Practice setting time aside for yourself, either every day or once a week, and allow yourself to be selfish for a little while, and recharge, so you can better handle the rest of your life and be better for your family or job and friends.

I mean, I use a stapler like 40 times a day. If it doesnt work, it is irritatiing! You waste so much time fixing it and taking the crummy staples out and re stapling and I thought today: You know what? Why am I fighting this? A new stapler is like what, $10.00? Am I not worth $10.00 for a less annoying day? Yes. Yes I am.
What is your stapler thingy that annoys you and you could fix so easily??

So yesterday I went to Lane Bryant to return a bra that I bought. Yea it was too big. I got a 44c and a 42c the last time (from a 48 c)not really knowing what size I needed. So anyway, I exchanged it for a 40 C figuring that would be the next size I am gonna be.
They had a great sale on Panties. Not knowing what size (again), I bought some 18-20's and some 22-24's because I figured I would be getting into them soon enough (from a 26-28) and I am still in the same panties I was wearing 40 lbs ago (I dont know why, I just never got new ones).
Then, they had some tanks on sale for 4.99! Summer is almost over so I got 2 in size 18-20 cause I am still in size 22-24 (again from 26-28).
So this morning (come take the ride with me even tho you know where this is going), I took a shower and was getting dressed. I decide to try the size 18 panties. Um, yeah, they FIT!!! So that means the 22-24's are never getting worn. I BLEW by that size! (Back to Lane Bryants for an exchange!).
Then I put on the 40C Bra. Yep! It fit too!!! (That means I can do one of my goals, get a Victoria secret bra since they have my size!!).
Then the tank top. Uh huh, wearing it right now!!!
I am not much of a bragger but come on... This is a fantastic day for me! Do you know how friggin tiny I feel right now!?
I came out to the living room, dropped my drawers, shook my ass at my husband while yelling, "SIZE 18 BITCH!" Then I whirled around, lifted my size 18 tank, shook my boobies at him and yelled "40C!!! under my (pull top back down) SIZE 18 TANK TOP!!"
We high 5'vd then I grabbed the laptop and said, "I have to blog this!" to which he replied,
"Thats right, Frank, I am a blog HO too, so you better get used to your new wife who wears size 18 underwear, (but not for long) and a 40C bra!".
Oh yes, a good day indeed.

I love blogs. I love reading them. I love writing them. I love reading the comments that people leave about blogs. I love finding a comment one of my friends left on someones page that I have never heard of and checking it out. I am kinda obsessed about it.
Thank you for feeding my obsession and please, go read my 6 month blog I posted or any of the others and leave me a comment or "like" it. I need a fix.
