A bloated Barbie doll is not attractive - YIKES - I'm thinking the pain meds are sending me over the edge??? My pants are tight today and my tummy just feels a little off - my mouth is still a bit sore but I can't really complain. Hubby is still being good but of course he is still hoping for a "make-up" session - I, on the other hand, am trying to determine if I can pull off one more day of "my mouth hurts".......probably not though!
I so missed blogging yesterday - funny how it becomes such a part of my daily life! So while doped up yesterday I had plenty of time to think of all the things I wanted to write about - sad thing is that I can't really remember them!! One thing that I have been asked a gazillion times is "do you have any secrets for success" - ummmmm, no - sorry but there really isn't any secret to it. It is kind of funny when I think about how I managed to take off the weight.........I guess before I felt like I wasn't really doing it but I was. Now I feel like I am fighting tooth and toenail and still can't get rid of the poundage! I will say that I heard about a study that was done at a University in which 2 groups of dieters were tested. One group was told that they had lost 5 pounds more than they thought and the other was told that they gained 5 pounds - they were then taken to a buffet and the ones that thought they lost 5 more pounds showed more constraint and stayed on target - the others ate like they weren't on a diet.........I guess that proves your mindeset has something to do with losing..........or should I say with our ability to stick with it. I know that for me - putting a pair of pants that are too tight depresses me..........it used to motivate me because that was a positive - it usually meant I was going down a size - now it means I'm going up a size.........Damn!!!
I will write more later - I have so much to say! Right now I have to try to get caught up from my time off for the tooth stuff.............fun! Oh yeah - I am going to walk the parking garage today - hmmmm can't hardly wait for that!
