Later on that same day..

AHEM...May I have your attention please?? Yes, this woman made it thru work today without eating 1 delectable french fry, 1 crouton or 1 cup of cream o'mushroom soup!! ::::APPLAUSE LIGHT GOES ON::: Thanks you! ::bows:: What I DID eat was 2 blackened chicken strips over brown rice and pico de gallo and a squirt of lemon....TASTY!!

Tonight I'm thinki' grilled chicken breast over greens..balsamic vinegar..maybe a slice of lo-carb bread. See, my plan here is to try and eat a bit healthier..I'm not gonna EVEN attempt Atkin's only because I cannot see having zero carbs (ok..30 carbs) a day. My feeling is that if I cut out sugars, limit carbs and fats and do away with alcohol, and TRY to hit the gym at least 3x a week, I should see some results by summer. Right now I'm about 160 pounds, which isn't awful because I am tall, 5'10"..The thing is, I don't own a scale nor do I WANT to own a scale..I think that people get too caught up in the numbers issue. Me, I'll feel and see the difference...hopefully sooner than later!! LOL!! I'm not into taking weight loss pills or strict diets.

One of the guys at work asked me why I want to lose weight. My answer: I don't look good naked anymore!! Poor guy near 'bout died!

I'll keep you posted...gonna attempt the "gym" thing tonight...maybe.....

Lots o pats on back for you Sharon for resisting those fries and soup.  I probebly would have giving in and had a least a few!  Although the chicken strips and rice sound very good too.  No scale in this house either, havn't a clue what I weigh,  but I'll find out June 9 when I have a doctors appointment...oh the horrors of that!  lol  ~lila~
