Summer of Cheez

Friday, June 18, 2010

Well, here we go, the no more excuses, need to do this because being photosensitive is creating issues, get off the drugs, change is good, etc etc etc. I have given away all my reasons to not lose weight, not exercise, not, not not. The kids are in another state with their grandparents. My husband is old enough to fend for himself if he wants to, so I have no reason whatsoever not to succeed. I did, however, leave the Wii with the kids, so, no playing on that until they return. But its summer, so I have tons of other options.
I am also going to go low carb, which I need to remind myself doesn't mean NO carb. I get sleepy with carbs, so I know this is a good choice for me, but I cannot completely cut them out. That would just make it too hard.
So, my starting weight today was 204, not horribly bad considering I just came back from a full day and a half of fast food only places.
One of the biggest motivators for this summer push was trying on dresses. I hated everything that touched my body. I want to wear a dress without girdles or spanx. I want to be free and not lumpy, and having all those lightweight pretty dresses cling to my lumpy spots was horrifying. No more. And, all the sleeveless stuff? These Bingo Wings (just learned a new word this week!) have got to go too.
Bring on the summer of Cheez!

    You can do this girl! The body needs carbs to operate but the good kind not donuts or pizza crust! LOL What the heck is a bingo wing??

    You're smart to allow yourself the carbs if you want them. Going "cold turkey" on stuff like that always makes it harder. Baby steps!

    Too bad you don't have the Wii though. Those videos are great and I am looking forward to more!
