Well this was fun. We made it eleven days. Big Fat Deal. I don't really even care that my inner voices were right. I'm tired. I'm grouchy, and I want a pepperoni pizza with EXTRA cheese and a Costco family-sized bottle of wine. Oh, and some peanut butter cups too. It's not like I look that bad, right?
Life is too short to not eat what I want!!!!
Well, guess what voices? I am not giving up. So there!
Okay, I feel a little better now. But only a little.
I've had quite a few people ask me if I've lost weight and how much, which, first of all, I find pretty cheeky. Secondly, I thought I made this clear in the My Favorite Jeans post. I'm not in this for the weight loss. I mean, who cares how much I weigh? It' s not like anyone's going to carry me around and they certainly aren't going to weigh me at the airport and charge me excess muffin top fees. Are they?? That would be awkward and more than a little embarrassing... I can picture myself wincing apologetically to the people I'm holding up in line, "I'm sorry. Yeah, I only made it eleven days before I caved in and now you're probably gonna miss your flights because of THIS!" As I menacingly grab the skin hanging over my jeans as a visual exclamation point.
Like I said before, what matters to me the most is how my jeans fit. And how I feel. So no, I will not be weighing myself and nor do I plan to. Well, maybe when I'm done, but only if I'm feeling really brave. I think sometimes the numbers on the scale can play head games and besides, I've seen enough episodes of the biggest loser to know the scale is rarely on anyone's side. If you're down a few pounds then you're all, "oooh, I think I'll have a bigger portion- I deserve it." And if you're up a few you're like: "Forget this stupid plan, its not working anyways, I'm going to McDonalds so I can super-size myself with purpose!" No. I am in this for 28 days, come hell or high water.
So yeah, for me, its all about the jeans... and getting through this day, which was pretty basic. Had my cup of coffee, did my work out, had leftover Harvest Lentil Soup for lunch. Had a Sausage Spaghetti Squash bake (from one of my favorite bloggers Juli at PaleOMG.com) and now I'm putting myself to bed. Thank goodness for tomorrows and fresh starts.
P.S. : Here's a link to my dinner:

It was really good. And her blog is really funny.
P.P.S. Do you think Sadie EVER feels this way??
