The dress

Okay, so I look nothing like the model in the picture but I felt extremely beautiful when I wore it.


I've felt like a garbage disposal. I ate practically non stop all weekend, and I don't recall having a meal. I ate about a box of ice cream sandwiches, nachos, icing out of the tub (u-hu, out of the tub). Most of the time I was eating out of boredome, just because - no really reason. I wanted to stop, well maybe not really wanted to but I thought it. Then the thoguth of the frosting being in the fridge took over. Next the thought of vanilla ice-cream sandwiches in the freezer filled my brain.

I'm so tempted in weighing myself today, but I purposely wore jeans to keep that temptation at bay. People have been telling me what a difference they can see in my body and face. The picture on the left was taken in January, the one on the right was taken today.

I don't know if I see a difference, but hey a long as the scale keeps showing a loss.

On the WW boards there was a topic of rewards, that got me thinking of what rewards I want. the weigh-loss and the compliments are great but I want something that everytime I see it, it reminds me of where I used to be so I don't go back. I was thinking jewelry. Now I'm not a big fan of jewelry but for the weigh-loss I think I will wear it, and all with diamonds. Granted they don't have to be teh best cut diamonds but diamonds all the same. I want to loose 78 pounds so I can break this down into 3 big reward.

26 pounds = necklace
52 pounds = bracelet
78 pounds = ring, and a really expensive diamond

I was also thinking of little rewards, pedicures - boy do I love them, but since I've been counting my pennies I haven't had one in a while. Ithink I will reward myself with one tomorrow for the 10 pounds and get one every ten pounds. That sounds like a plan.

FYI, I stopped going to WW meeting - saving the money. I wasn't really following the plan to the T, so it was not worth the $10 a week (plus about $15 for the snacks) to use their scale. I weigh myself on Friday's at the GNC scale for $0.50.

That's what I'm going to become - a weapon of mass seduction.Took my first yoga class last night. Not exactly what I had expected but my body enjoyed it. I learned about 8 out of the 1,000 yoga positions. It's a start. Going to try to go 3 x a week (Monday, Wednesday, Saturday) If there only was a yoga studio around my house, I'd love to sign up to at my schedule not when the gym offers it. I don't like the hours they have. Monday 7:45 - 8:45, Wed 7:00 - 8:15 and Saturda 6:45 pm - 7:45 pm.

Also did 15 minutes on the stationary bike and 28 minutes on the eliptical machine.Tempted to take a cardio kickboxing class tonight at 5:30 which means I wont get home till 7:00 pm. I feel that's late for me to get home. I'll let you in on Monday if I went. (I can't update the blog on the weekend, currently don't have internet at home.)
