Amongst the obvious reasons like to feel better, look better and well, to live longer.
I want nice clothes.
My friend donated a bunch, I mean a BUNCH of her clothes to me as she was losing weight. These are some nice clothes. I'm a sweatpants and tshirt kinda gal, except for when we go to our religious meeting, then I try to look nice of course. But, when you weigh so much, it's hard to buy things that really look nice, you know? At least within a budget. So even my dress clothes are pretty simple and nothing to sneeze at.
When I first saw some of these clothes, I thought, "These really aren't my taste."
But then I thought, "What IS my taste? Oversized tshirts and elastic banded pants?"
So I looked again and saw that they were really nice and I would love to see how they look on me! They vary in size so many might fit in another 20 lbs. and many will take another 40 lbs. or more I'm guessing. Hard to say. I'm eager to find out though!!
Ham & Egg Beaters = 120
Yogurt = 100
2 BLT Hummus Wraps minus the B = 360
Salad = 120
2 Mini pizza burgers = 380
Popcorn = 100
Pea Pods = 35
Total = 1215 calories
Plenty, plenty of water
I didn't mind eating my BLT's without the bacon, it was really all about the hummus, and now it's gone. :-( The mini pizza burgers were nummy but way not worth the calories. If I had MADE the burgers, I could have eaten plenty more for the same amount of calories. As it was, I had premade steak mini burgers that were highly caloric. That and a salad were enough but then I munched the rest of the evening.
Hot 100 = Update 14 - Last One!
Posting: Very regular, I hope to continue this as it is keeping me focused.
Food tracking: I've been doing this all month, haven't missed a day. Again, this is something that I need to continue to do on this journey.
Exercise: Still a struggle for regularity. I have a feeling that is about to change...
The Hot 100 may be over but it isn't ending for me. I got a late start but really refocused this last month. It isn't going to stop anytime soon.
