i’ll be honest. olivia is 2 now and about a month ago i still weighed what i weighed after coming home from the hospital (once all of my “retained fluid” was gone.) i’ve not felt good AT ALL about how i look and finally made the decision to do something about it. after all, i’ll be OFFICIALLY single on monday and that means it’s time to seriously put myself out there and to find “the (right) one”. with all of that said i did what no one wants to do and i had my “last meal” a few weeks ago. other than a few slip-ups i’ve done REALLY well. i have a meal plan that i follow and it’s not bad at all! i’m really liking the recipes and think i’ll continue to eat them after this is all said and done. do i miss the johnny’s sweep the kitchen? OF COURSE I DO! but do you know what’s better than johnny’s sweep the kitchen…the fact that i got into a size smaller pants last night with NO pulling, tugging or praying! WOOO HOOO!! this diet thing does work and was proved last night when i put on the before mentioned smaller size pants. that, my friends, is incentive! i celebrated with lettuce wraps and the healthy roll at raw. (in the past i’d celebrate with chips and salsa [my ALL TIME FAVORITE FOOD] and follow it up with beer/wine/liquor.) and i didn’t feel deprived! my true test will come when i have to actually venture out to my fav restaurants and order something that i’ve never ordered before while “forgetting” that my fav items are still on the menu. but i can do it b/c i know an even smaller size pants is coming!
now just think what would happen if i’d actually work out. baby steps. :)
