I want to look cute while I work out. I am tired of the dumpy sweatpants and oversized t-shirts. I hate how workout clothes cling to my "rolls". I am forever adjusting because as I "zumba" my pants inch down and my top inches up. In yoga clas...

Thu, 9 Aug 2012 21:31:22 EST Day 9 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4978834 I just weighed in at 158.6 which is a bit higher than I had hoped but I lost 1 inch off my stomach so I'll take it! Last week I weighed in at 157.8 but I think that might have been a scale fluke since the rest of the week was 159.2, 160, 159.6, 159.6, 158.6 and 158 (yes, I record it each day). <BR> <BR> I have been reading a lot about the paleo lifestyle (no grains, no sugar or processed food). I cut way back on sugar and grains this week and hope to have almost none in the weeks to come....

I think I am at about 1650 for the day (it is 9:25 pm and I am not planning to eat anything else today). I am used to extreme dieting - 1200 cals, no sugar, carbs, break, etc. This plan is all new to me. <B... Wed, 11 Jul 2012 21:32:01 EST Lawn chair http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4964622 On Sunday I was at a BBQ at my husband's aunt's house. After much deliberation about what to wear, I finally put on the one pair of shorts I have that I can still button up (size 13) - they were very snug but I figured looked better than the elastic waist yoga pants I practically live in. When we arrived, I sat down in a lawn chair and was so uncomfortable. My stomach was pushing hard on the waistband of the shorts and I was very aware of the roll of fat it made. I kept adjusting my top, ... Tue, 10 Jul 2012 22:08:50 EST
