Weigh In Day: WEEK TWO

I am so excited and shocked! I LOST 6 LBS THIS WEEK!

Last night I wore jeans that have not fit me since the beginning of 2008. I tried them on to see how long it would be before they fit...and they slid right on and zipped right up. I did a happy dance, then called Brian, my mom, and sisters to tell them the good news.

Last night was also my nephew Anthony's surprise birthday you know what challenge I had to face. Birthday cake and ice cream. I went to the party telling myself in my head that it is my choice if I want to eat that stuff. I left it up to me, instead of automatically saying that I CAN'T have it.

Once I got there it was not hard at all to simply say no. For about 5 minutes while everyone was eating I just roamed around played with the kids, and a few times I looked in the mirror to look at my accomplishments...AKA looking at my butt in those jeans--- LOL!

Eating that cake and ice cream would have not "messed up" my diet....but it would have made me crave more and then I possibly would have went overboard with a second piece, or a binge at home that night.

The cake that did not break my It was also hard to say no to the Blue Bell individual cups of ice cream, but I did it...and I am still alive. :)

On a more depressing note, my 20 month old was sick last night from about 8pm-1 am. So, I was tempted to eat some bad things because I was stressed, but I just took care of her and drank a diet coke zero. Today I will try to post more menus and my exercise, because what I am doing is working and I want to help others be successful too!!!!
