Rockin' It!

So, to the whole flying solo deal...

I'm totally rocking it! I lost 4.1 lbs this last week which makes the grand total of lost pounds 48. Isn't that awesome? I think I might hit 50 next week. Which means I think we should do another giveaway. What do you think?

Other highlights:
  1. I fit into a couple of pairs of pants that I wore before I got pregnant with Mr. Grumpybutt including a pair of my "skinny" jeans. Naturally, I'm stoked about this!
  2. I have to retire a pair of pants that pretty much fall off of me. It's sort of a shame because they're super comfy but they really hang on me and bunch around my waist because I have their drawstring cinched all the way. They're a size 26 and I am down to a size 18. So you can imagine how big they are.
  3. I'm up to 100 crunches and 25 push ups twice a day. I really think the crunches played a huge part into getting into my "skinny" jeans. I'm adding more of both on tomorrow.
  4. I went to my favorite Mexican food restaurant yesterday and didn't overdo it. Sure, I wasn't hungry for a snack at my normal time, but I wouldn't say I ate massive amounts of food at lunch. I also survived a barbecue at my brother-in-laws. His better half is an awesome griller -- the food was delicious -- and I stuck to portions and enjoyed what I had.
  5. I baked all week -- from cake, to scones, to cinnamon sugar cookies. And while I partook in all that I made I was able to control my portions and not have a free for all horking session and eat it all.
The best part of all. I don't feel deprived. I don't feel like I'm "dieting" (which is good because I'm NOT!). I honestly feel I could eat like this for the rest of my life -- I'm eating more delicious food now than I did when I just crammed whatever in my mouth. I've found that quality beats out quantity anytime and if I'm going to put calories in my mouth they're going to be delicious ones not just what's on hand. And in keeping this mindset not only will I hit all my goals, I'll never have to worry about gaining the weight back!
