FRESH, with no mistakes in it. I will be, and I will stay OP all day. This I vow. I have friends coming over to watch the race and dh is grilling out. They will be having freshly grilled cheeseburgers. I will be having a cheeseburger too. A Boca
burger. With FF cheese.
They will be having fat laden chips. I will be having FF pringles.
They will be having some type of brownies that my friend is picking up at the Bi Lo Deli. I will be having FF, SF angel food cake with strawberries and FF cool whip. I
will be OP. I
will make healthy, responsible choices. I will make today a winning day for me. Yes, I know I can have a grilled hamburger too.
I understand that. But I want
a Boca burger, so that is what I'm having.
Sometimes you find inspiration in some of the most amazing places. It seems I've been searching
lately. Searching for something to tie all of my weight loss hopes and dreams together. I found it. I've had good days this week and bad days. I've had small victories and big defeats. My small victory was yesterday when I turned the nachos down when dh brought them to me. (you'll see why I called it small
in a minute) My big defeat was when I came home and no one had eaten the nachos yet, and I did.
Here's my inspiration: http://pub16.************/ftonystewar...ID=10406.topic
This is the Tony Stewart board I am an admin on. Yesterday, I changed my photo (on here as well) to a picture that was taken just a couple of months ago when we went to Bristol for the race. This was a mere 16 lbs. ago. I had just walked over **** and high water and was pretty much exhausted and dh took my picture as we finally got to the car. This is one of the better pictures I have had taken and I really like the side of the hill behind me. I'll explain the reference of me being a "hen".
We have some males on the board that refer to themselves as "roosters", therefore, we are the "hens".
I was in the bed this morning, (I'm off today) thinking about what I would eat today and making yet another resolve
that today I would stay OP and dh tells me to come into the living room.....that Chris, (who is another admin on the board) has posted something he felt was "scandalous" and that needed to be removed. So the topic of the post was "Hey Roosters...New NASCAR HOTTIE alert!
Imagine my surprise, joy and tears when it was me.
Not that I consider myself a hottie,
but just to see that someone is noticing and that someone was a man.
Now I don't know if this makes sense to you or not......but to me, it feels really good when your friends or co-workers notice that you're losing weight. BUT, when it's a man, for some reason it's different. Not because I want to run off and have a scathing affair with this person (who, by the way...lives in Michigan thin
) but because he noticed.
I know that we're doing this for our health and to feel better, look better and be healthy. But come on, let's be honest as well. How does it make you feel when someone notices.....especially a man? I don't know about anyone else, but it makes me feel darn good. I guess I've always felt because of my size that I've been "overlooked" by men.....you know, "just another fat woman". Chris absolutely made my day, along with my other friends on the board, especially what my own sweet hubby said. As I was sitting here looking at the screen, eyes misting over....dh, who was sitting beside me....taking in my reaction, said, "Do you need much more inspiration that that?"
NO girls......I don't.
