taking care of business...
(acorns made for my friends 50th bday.. didnt get 50 made, only 30!)
OK girls.. so this is it.. for my 50th birthday I lost 50 pounds. (55 really). I will soon turn 51 in another week or so, and I have to admit that this year I found, at last count about 30 of those pounds back! And if I am to be honest, I would guess that I have gained 40 of those pounds back... wth! Im not quite ready to step on the scale to see the grand total..
(could have ruined her surprise party as I thought the party was last night! its sunday! thankfully no one was home!)
But the good news is, this craziness is going to stop now. I have been eating anything I wanted when ever I wanted and as much as I wanted for weeks and weeks.. I've even been to nasty Mcdonalds a few times lately and i had completely given that up.. same for DONUTS!!
(love these cute and spooky stickers, bought at Micheals!)
So heres the scoop! There are several of you who have mentioned to me the desire to lose weight. so I'm starting a little group. we can encourage each other and post healthy, lowfat recipes to share. And just try to be accountable to each other. I'm putting on my walking shoes and I'm getting moving again.. and riding my sweet pink bicycle.. that sits on the porch wondering if Ive forgotten about her!
(cute on the these bottles arent they?)
Weight watchers is an awesome place to go for tips and accountability and it worked sooo well for me before, but seriously I just dont want to give them my money. I have the tools, I know what to do and I'm just going to do it.. we all know that diets are temporary.. it cant be that way.. it has to be for life.
(a little blurry! )
I got to thinking that for one.. Im fat and its unhealthy as well as unattractive! But also, I'm only 50 (well for a few more days anyways) and I cant retire for another 11 ro 12 years. I need to be able to work. Also, I'm a grammy pie now and will surelyin the next few years! Which means I NEED to be healthy so I can be the best ever grammy for them. I would like to be around for another 40 or more years.. in a healthy capacity.. so this is it...
no more of this out of control eating. Starting now, today, I'm going back to where I started about two years ago. You'll probably get tired of hearing about it.. and if for some reason I'm not talking about it, call me out.. cause that probably means I'm not doing what I'm supposed to be doing.
(dont they look like theyre cooking up some evil little plan!?)
If youre serious and you want to join in, let me know and I'll be sure to check in on you and to encourage you too. Okeedokie girls?
so to start today out, this is what i'm having for breakfast.
A scrambled egg with peppers, onions and tomatos, a little bit of ham chopped up in it and a laughing cow cheese wedge melted into it. with a 100 cal bagel thin and spray butter (no cals) . I'm also having two little clementine oranges. (I'll be counting my points using the old weight watchers points, not the new..) My total points for breakfast will be about 6 points.
Ok.. other then that, I have some crafty plans for the weekend! All halloween related of course! And I've still got to decorate my porch. its cold and rainy out today, a perfect day for that kind of stuff! I'll be back later to check on all my bloggy buds! love yas!
