Halloween is not usually a big diet buster for me because I'm not big on candy, however sometimes I find myself mindlessly chewing a twix because it's there. This year I'm attempting to talk all 3 kids into selling their candy to the orthodontist. It cannot be good to inundate their little bodies with more sugar.
Well I am getting everyone in their costumes for school. BTW..this will be my last fat Halloween.;)

I have been fully conscious of my eating since Monday. It feels good. I was up quite a bit by then but today I am six lbs lighter. . .sad i'm still above beginning weight.

Good news my baby sis had her first child and he's beautiful.:)

I realized why the scale isn't going down though I've been working out so hard. I learned this of myself by watching 'Biggest Loser". I have traded one addiction for another(smoking for eating). When I used to feel that lonely or empty or stressed or anxious feeling I used to grab a cigarette. Now I put food in my mouth. Awareness is key. I'm changing my self talk. There has been a gain of 15 lbs from the day I quit smoking to this day(two months!!!) I am changing this. I understand there is a metabolism shift involved so I may never win this challenge but it will be worth it for me because I will learn more about myself and start heading the weight in the right direction..down.

I was trying to get home before the week was up but I had to work late. I hope this doesn't ruin my chances.

1 mth down

One month and up 1.6. I'm not too worried because I know my body is changing with my consistent workouts. I'll update the measurements on Tuesday

Great job to all the big losers out there. I need to know what you're eating.

I have worked out so hard for almost three weeks straight now. My body is feeling strong and I can see my muscle definition. My friend, who is a boy, says my legs 'feel like rocks'. The scale says I've gained two lbs. ?????

Dierks Bentley and myself
Well I ripped myself apart for what I looked like last night comparing myself to the little 90 lb girls in white tank tops ready to flirt with anyone. The negative self-talk gets to end NOW. I am beautiful. I am strong. I am doing what it takes. I had fun.
