I love lots of things about it … the light on Sophie’s sweet face, her belly button peeking out, those cool clouds in the background. But I can hardly look at myself. And my 16 chins.
This is me one month ago. And I’m embarrassed to report today that I don’t look any different. Yet.
I know the camera angle is unflattering (even though the composition is really cool — good job, husband). And I know we all get the squishies when we cock our heads back like that. But still. This is a reminder of what I don’t want to look like.
There were others. Full-body shots. But I seem to have deleted them all after we got home from vacation last month.
This was not a good week. My “monthly visitor” came with a vengeance, so I’ve been comfort-eating all week. My only exercise consisted of a short walk on campus. And all that state fair food must have settled in.
Never fear, you guys. I’m not down and out. Definitely not.
This just fuels the flame. I am determined to post a loss next week!
Here are my stats:
The scale says: + almost 1 lb
Fried chicken count: 0
Exercise: one short walk
Highs: writing this post (for real)
Lows: feeling oh so mushy and B-I-G
Moral victory of the week: eating a veggie sandwich on Mexican-casserole-day at my favorite lunch spot
Moment of weakness: sweet tea after sweet tea
Progress toward goal: 1.6 lbs down, 18.4 to go
How was your week? I’ve heard good things about My Fitness Pal and Lose It … are there any other diet/weight-loss apps you guys recommend?
