I would have eaten...

It's amazing to me to see all the things I would have eaten if I were still out of control. I know I would have eaten a big bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch for Breakfast. I know I would have eaten at least four or five of the Girl Scout Cookies Nic brought home. The chewy caramel ones with chocolate stripes and coconut. Sigh. I would have eaten white chocolate popcorn instead of sending it to school for Afton's class party. I would have eaten Mickey Mouse chicken nuggets with ranch or ketchup, macaroni and cheese and chocolate milk. I would have picked off a couple of chocolate chip cookies at my sister's house.

No wonder I got so fat! I better start feeding my kids differently if I don't want them to suffer the same fate!

I went and looked at my friend's before and after pictures today. She lost 50 lbs in in four months. Such a stud. Gives me strength...yes it does.

So, I would have eaten all of that, but instead I ate:
1/2 a grapefruit, 2 melba toasts, two roma tomatoes, 100 gr. chicken, an apple, 5 shrimp. I still have a veggie and a fruit to eat tonight. Spinach smoothie anyone? Guh.

Weigh in:
Starting weight: 198.6
Today's weight: 184.6
Total loss: 14 lbs even. WOO!


  1. first of all - Angie you are beautiful!

I was telling ayris yesterday the only way I can is if I pray to everymorning!!! You are awesome, we have to love ourseleves before we can love and willing serve others!!!! You go girl!!!

  2. 25 sounds like a good number. Just remember to come off of HCG on protocol too. Introduce complex carbs slowly. Good luck!

  3. i am proud of you! i wish i could say that i always controlled myself in such a yummy situation, but i still have some more self control to acquire at different times unfortunately. i AM proud to say i didn't eat a single one of those oatmeal cookies you so lovingly pawned off on me. :) the kids sure liked em though and i shared them with the scouts!
