Am I the only person that has to have on lipstick to REALLY dance??? About once a week I go to this Hip-Hop dance class with my brother's girlfriend. She always makes fun of me because before every class, I whip out my cosmetic bag and choose a color for the night. And not just any color. I go LOUD, SASSY, PREVOCATIVE. I wear hot pink, magenta, plum, midnight red. It's like I am putting on confidence with every swipe of the lipstick. Tameica will say, "Oh no. It's Beyonce!" Our dance instructor calls me, "Get it Girl". I just love to dance and the loud lips help me get into character. Am I the only one?
Last night I picked up People's annual edition of Half Their Size. It was costly at $12.99 but I needed the motivation. This edition focused on people who had previously been featured and are still at their maintenance weight. It was so cool to read their stories and find little gems here and there. And guess what? SPARKPEOPLE was featured as a a proven weight loss mechanism. They shared a member's story and talked about Chris' goal with the site. I was reading it and said, "YYAAAAYY! We made it!" This community really makes me proud.
One of the weight loss success stories shared that she lost ovre 160 pounds by eating dinner at breakfast and breakfast at dinner. She said she would have fish or chicken with vegetables and perhaps a starch for breakfast. She would then have soup or salad for lunch and finish the evening with oatmeal and fruit. This woman lost 12 pounds the first week she did it. The expert nutritionist said it put her body into fat burning mode. I don't know but this morning I decided to try something like it. I had grilled salmon and scrambled eggs for breakfast with a cup of green tea (most of the people in the book swore by the tea at breakfast). It was so good and I was CRAZY full. I wasn't full immediately either. I felt satisfied. But then I began to feel more full and two hours after that I still wasnt hungry. When it was time for my mid morning snack, I really didn't want to eat it. I did anyway because I am trying to keep to the plan but it was hard. I will definitely have that again.
But anywho, I better get going. It's 2 pm and i should probably eat lunch (I'm not hungry).
