Dieting Again - for real!

Easter, my father-in-law went camera happy and snapped pictures of everybody. When I saw mine, I wanted to crawl into bed and hide. Or walk across America as many times as it takes to lose 50 pounds fast. I knew I'd gained too much weight and I wasn't happy with myself, but I didn't think it was too bad until I saw that pic. Ouch! I vowed for the gazillionth time to lose weight. THIS TIME I've been good for the past week starting Monday, the day after Easter. I've already lost about 6 pounds although I only expected to lose 1 or 2 pounds a week. I'm sure the rate will slow down. I think I shocked my poor body with fruits again after a much too long hiatus. And water. This morning my older daughter and I had a bowl of oatmeal and then I offered her some of my apples and peanut butter. It's amazing I only discovered a year ago that I LOVE peanut butter on apples. Anyway, she told me she HATES peanut butter, that she can't stand how sticky it is in her mouth, that it makes her feel like one of those poor dogs on the You Tube videos trying to eat peanut butter. Well, I'd never seen one of those videos, so I had to go and find one. So, here's one so you know how my daughter feels. Me? I only put a very thin smear of PB on my apple as I don't want too many calories and it's not enough to make my mouth get gluey. You'll also want to see what Amarinda Jones, Anika Hamilton, Anny Cook, Barbara Huffert, Brynn Paulin, Bronwyn Green, Dakota Rebel, Kelly Kirch, Molly Daniels, Sandra Cox, Regina Carlysle, and Cindy Spencer Pape are up to, so make sure to visit them also. :)

I don't get this fascination you lot have with peanut butter...on apples? With jame (jelly)? Or ruining cholocate with. Just pukeable

Sandra Cox said...

Congrats on the 6 pounds. That's great!

Molly Daniels said...

I love chocolate and peanut butter:)

I think the prednisone two weeks ago put an additional 10 lbs on me. All my February/early March progress, gone. Time to start over again...

I'm still dieting and it just SUCKS. I give myself one 'cheat' meal per week and that seems to help keep me on track because I have something to look forward too. My big problem is exercise. I hate it.

I can relate to the dieting Again! or Still! What I need to do now is get my backside in gear to get walking again now that it is Spring and I can't use cold weather as an excuse! (Like I couldn't have gone downstairs and used the treadmill all winter!!) It sure is easier to put those pounds on then get them off, especially since I passed the age of 50!
Ashley- The upper left pic is not opening on this blog and Google keeps jumping to an error message? hws/dell-usuk-rel..... Does that mean anything to you? BTW this was 4/20 stop for the Tisket Tasket Egg Hunt...can you let us know where to go on 4/21, please. In the egg hunt I mean of course! LOL

Oh Ash, I can soooooooo relate to seeing the pictures you'd rather not. I REALLY need to do something before Romanticon this year. Ugh.

Hope everything else is going well for you, though. :)
