I didn't participate in EM:ME hosted by Amber last week, because it was Mod Podge Mania. BUT I am goin' strong. I've been walking with my mom - although we need better consistency!
I am down 3 lbs - so that's good...although I did have some birthday cake and spicy sausage and potato soup at my daughter's birthday dinner last night...I am so weak!
But today I'm being super good!
I've got a new little addiction that is helping to motivate me. Do you ever see REALLY cute outfits in catalogs, or on mannequins, or on T.V. and you think "that is so CUTE!" but it is immediately followed by the thought "that wouldn't look cute on me, because I'm fat". Yeah - that's me all the time. I love clothes - until I try them on, that is.
So, as shallow as it may be, the idea of wearing cute clothes motivates me. Last week I decided I would put together a collection of great stuff I'd like to wear and look good in - only I could only find a couple of things. Lacey did a cute fashion makeover for me back here. Because of that I discovered polyvore.com. I decided to put my own outfits together!
I've had so much fun with it...even though some of the stuff I could NEVER afford, other stuff is too young for me, or not my "modesty" standards (although I've tried, but do you know how hard it is to find a gown with sleeves on that sight?). But here are some of the things that I WOULD wear, if I were thin. Oh, and rich. If you click on any of them, you can go see all the stuff I've put together just for fun!
This is almost as addictive as blogging!
I print these out along with other pictures I've collected, and keep them in a "think thin" (slogan stolen from Tanielle!) jounal. I also record my progress, food diary, setbacks and successes in theis journal. So far it is really helping me stay focused and motivated.
How are you doing?
