Hi everyone! K, so "the family" is taking the hubby out for dinner tonight! Uggggh! I already studied the menu, so my daughter and I decided to split a grilled chicken breast meal with all veggies and salad. The thing I hate the most about this is, everyone else at the table whines that you are not eating enough or some junk like that. I don't like it when other get jealous because they have no plan of attack for their weight issues, so they eat whatever they want and than focus the night on how you didn't eat the most fatten dish. REALLY! Common folks, wake up, right? I am proud that my daughter and I have a plan before we go and our excuse is that we had a big lunch. Believe me, we eat plenty of food, it's just healthier than others choose. I am proud to say I have taught my daughter a healthy lifestyle and she abides by it. You are what you eat. Although, we do get 1 cheat day a week to eat WHATEVER our sweet lil' hearts desire. Ummmmy, that's tomorrow. Sometimes you don't want the cheat day, because you have worked so hard to look good and I feel and look much better then ever. K, thanks for letting me blog and vent. Love to ALL! xoxoxox

Well my SP friends I weighed in at 182 on Saturday. 32 lbs. left to go. I really need to start exercising more to see better results. I had a corn dog this weekend and I think it made me sick too! I am not use to eating junk food. Anyhow, this marks the new start and a new day for me. I have joined a weight loss challenge and hope to get rid of more pound and gain more money!!!!! Yes, you win money, if you win 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. Wish me luck!

So I'm a little stressed out and I'm an emotional eater. I made a wonderful salad for lunch today when I made my husband a salad for dinner last night. I guess that was not enough! So, I was still emotionally starving or hungry! I call my little Wok place a few blocks away to order Shrimp Chop Suey! K, not bad and I even asked for it all steamed, no sauce with steamed rice. *patting myself on the back* When I get there it's not ready and Dairy Queen is next door. I venture into the DQ and look at their Low fat treats in boxes. Not too bad, some were as little as 90 calories per treat. Grabbed 2 boxes and went to the counter. The lady says, "that will be $6.99 per box." WOW, pricey! I put them down and head to Target, while my food is being steamed at the Wok place and grab 2 boxes of Breyers ice cream sandwiches. Low in calories and only $2.99 per box, 6 in each box. (I'm cheap) then I am thinking about the new clusters Skinny Cow has out, so I head to the candy isle. I pick up a tub of Swedish fish. Yummy! Good news and the AHA moment was when I realized that I could have a serving of each item as long as I practice my portion control. At that moment, I was soothed instantly and felt like I had overcome the emotional roller-coaster I was just about to get on. I had a little bit of each at work and plenty to still last me, for around 5 - 10 days, low cost and good tasting. I know fruit would be better, but there are times when you just have to have the chocolate or the sugar you know! At least I am calorie and fat counting! I told myself I have come a long way and that I did not need to undo what I have already accomplished so far by choosing the wrong foods to eat. I actually feel like I accomplished something within myself! THIS IS GOOD!!!!!

Blog #2, 8/10/11 - 184 lbs.
17 days left and I want to win this thing! I have the eating thing under control. I have not been exercising enough and I still like my wind down drink after work. Hmmmmm..... it's crunch time I think. The contests have really helped me out a lot. When it gets close to the end, I always come through. Hoping to be down to 183 soon. Last time I did a challenge I lost 22 lbs. and some money. Darn, I had to buy new clothes too and that was a bummer (NOT)! The last one was 10 weeks. This one is 8 weeks, and I have not been diligent. Just think by the time Halloween rolls around I might actually be able to wear something cute and look good, but most importantly feel healthier and have more energy. Thanks for letting me ramble on. Have a great day! xoxoxo
