I just finished reading Fit to the Finish post on meal planning and it was like a light bulb went off. Write out a menu for the week, and do a grocery list. When you think on how anal I am, I can't believe I have not thought of this myself. I also liked the idea of having a couple of the days as set meals. Like pizza night, or spaghetti night, or making enough to have leftovers for lunch the next day. I was kind of doing that, by making meatloaf or extra sauce and freezing it. This is going to take it to the next level!
Ha ha ha...I am 204.6 lbs today! Coolio.
I took some pictures of me this morning and posted them in the progress pics page. If I was not already on a diet, I would after seeing how bad I look. Yikes! Anyhoo, last night I decided to try on a pair of pjs that I have had for at least 3 years. I never even bothered to try them on as they said they were XL. I saw them last night and said, why the hell not. So on they went. Guess what? They fit perfectly. Not too small either. Nice! That made me pretty happy.
I told my son about my daydream where I hug him and I am not bigger than him. He does not get it. Thats ok, I do. When he was a baby, or still a young kid, it was natural for me to be bigger than him. He grew this year and is over 5' 11"! I dont want to still be bigger than him by
I think I might take a picture of me dressed for work. I want to look back and see what I looked like when I am out in public. In nearly all the before (on purpose) pictures the people are wearing sad expressions, no makeup and bad hair. Whereas the after pictures they have makeup, hair done all up, nice clothes and are smiling.
Geez I have taken more pictures of myself in the past few weeks than I have in a few years. I am going to become a camera junkie ;)
Ugh! So I took some pictures and I immediately deleted them. I seriously cant believe I look that bad. I guess that is what happens when you refuse to look in the mirror for a couple of years.
