Since its been forever and a day since I have actually worn a dress (and mine closely resemble the curtains from, "The Sound of Music") my friend allowed me to borrow a few of hers. I was really pleased when I tried on the dresses. I rarely give myself a compliment, however I have to say this dress fit very nicely and really showed off my curves. As I looked at my reflection in the mirror, I realized that I'd forgotten what I looked like outside of jeans and tank tops.
My diet for the next two weeks will largely consist of apples, water, and rice cakes - or that's what I thought until drove by McDonald's and found myself pleading with my thighs to let me order a small french fries. My children are already helping me with my intervention as I try to steal a bite or two (okay, five) of their chicken nuggets. They see me peering over their food and say "Please mommy this is my food" as they fiercely protect their plate from their ravenous mommy in search of a carb fix.
I already lost 11lbs on weight watchers - or is it 12, or 15? It's hard to keep count now. I have been reluctant to be honest with my weight loss because they keep taking points away when you lose weight. I started with 29 points and now I am down to 27 so I've been adding the same weight for the last two weeks so I don't lose points. I figure its a win-win. They get to keep sending me motivational messages about weight loss and I get to continue to keep my points. I know, I know. It's a sick game I play. In fairness, I do get an additional 49 points for the week so I figure it evens out if I don't use them all.Anyway, I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to kicking up my heels, drinking a glass of wine, and actually having a conversation that doesn't involve, Yo-Gabba-Gabba, laundry, carpooling, homework or after school activities. Mostly, I'm looking forward to a night that's completely free from distraction - or almost free as I suspect I'll be having anxiety that whatever mechanisms I am using to suck me in don't fail and allow my body to bounce back into its normal shape!
