Diet Challenge...Day One....
OKIE DOKIE...here we go, this is MY day one of Sharons diet challenge, I just could not get into it last week, too much stressful stuff going on....so this is my first day, I have chosen the Atkins Diet to begin with, then I will switch over to maybe South Beach or WW, once I have lost about 30 pounds, my total goal is to lose 45 pounds, and I would like 20 of them gone by my birthday, is that too much too ask????????? I will not publish my starting weight, these pictures are worth a 1000 words, and lots of humiliation.......BUT since our fearless diet guru was not too proud to put her pictures for the whole bloggy world to see, I am not too proud to put MY A&* on the line.......maybe this will be the final wake up call to stay the course!!!!! Thanks Sharon for hosting this monumental event in the bloggysphere, I needed a kick in my large barge!!!!!! This is the most I have ever weighed, and the sad thing is, I had lost a good bit of it a couple years ago, only to put it right back on!!!!!
BUTT, pardon the pun, Iam determined to win this time,and hubby is joining me to so I will have accountibilty. Also my BFF Glenni and I are starting a walking program....yes yes, I know she lives on the opposite coast, but where theres a will theres a way!!!!! Heres to us Glenni, we did it before, we will do it again!!!!!
Yesterday we met some friends in the city of Orange,we had a nice lunch and enjoyed the amazing 85 degree weather we are having here in So Cal.....I have the last bread I will be having for a long time!
I got this awesome box of yumminess from my oldest, who also lives in Ct.....the purse is too die for...she also sent me a yummy soft throw, which I have already been using...thanks Honey, I love you and miss you so much!!!!
In keeping with one of Tammys new years resolutions, I too want to read more. They say it protects your mind against alzhiemers and demetia......so, I too will be reading more, and here are 2 that I cannot wait to dive into. Wally Lamb is one of my favs, I cant wait to read this new one.......and this book about polygomy looks intriging, although Im sure its not as fun a BIG LOVE, which by the way will be back SOON!!!!!!!!
I have a brutal cold that seems to be going around...its kicking my butt right now, lets just hope it keeps my appetite at bay,lol.........Good Luck everyone, and I will be posting every Monday with the number of pounds I have lost, we are all in this together!!!!!!!!!!
