Hello to all my Sisters in the quest of Skinny!
Well, yesterday was weigh in day & I am sad to say, 179 didn't happen this week. I actually GAINED 2#! Arrgh!! I was so hopeful because on Monday the scale looked so promising but oh well, it happens & I am forgiving myself & moving on. Its a new day & a new week! The topic of next weeks WW class is getting unstuck. I am anxious to attend that one cuz I feel like somebody planted my feet in a pot of cement! lol.
Anyways, since purchasing my size 14 jeans, I cant help but try those darned things on daily if not sometimes more than that. The one pair actually makes my butt look skinny & you can see daylight through my legs!! haha! But what is disturbing me is the whole muffin top thing goin on. All of the jeans that I bought have a low rise, which I have always wanted to wear because I think they are very "on trend" & I hate the whole "Grandma jeans" thing, but the problem is with the low rise brings out the muffins & I am not liking that at all!! we will still be wearing shorts & Capri's for another month or so so I feel like I have some "leash" as far as doing something about it. I have been reading all of your blogs & looking at your photos & I have to tell you, there is something to be said about the whole sugar/carbs thing. It is so apparent the differences I can you see in your bellies by watching these 2 areas. I love WW & it has been working well for me but I feel like I am "stuck" in the 180s & have been for months & it is not only getting old but frustrating. I feel like I need to mix things up a bit and seeing all of your successes has inspired me to try doing the BFC lifestyle for a week & see what happens. I do remember that when I was following it, I had very little to no bloating, my tummy always felt flatter, & when I looked in the mirror my belly actually looked different. I know you know what I'm talking about. So starting today, I am giving it a whirl to see if I can break into the 170s. Its worth a try. I do still plan to do WW though...I just may need to make some tweaks along the way with sugar & carb intake. I know that I have been eating way too much of both lately & I am thinking its the reason I saw a gain this week. The homemade heath bars, cookie dough etc...even though I accounted for it I think it was just too much.
I love Dawns post about the mid years resolution. I would love to reach goal of 150 by the end of the year but I know its rather lofty to dream that big, but "dreaming is what aspires us to be that which we want to become" and I want to become SKINNY!!!! So I am putting it out there & dreaming big!!!
I hope you all have a great Sunday!!!
Blessings to all!
