Progress & Motivation

It has officially been three weeks since my diet began and my weight loss thus far....

7.8 LBS
There have been a few things getting me through the un-fun-ness of dieting.  The first is this...

This stuff is delicious with a little skim milk. Sometimes I have it for more than one meal a day. 

Additionally, when I meet a goal, I reward myself.  My reward this week was this shirt from H&M.

During my freshman year of college, there was a big trend on campus to wear denim shirts with khaki pants.  I remember going to Gap and buying my denim & khaki outfit and feeling like a million bucks. Alas, that was 16 years ago and the trend came and went, but guess what it came back again.  Well, maybe not the khaki part, but the denim shirt is definitely in style and back in my closet for only $19.95 and 7.8 pounds.

Another thing motivating me this week is this jerk I knew in high school. We had a tradition in my school that the graduating Seniors left a will for their underclassman that was published for all the world to see. When I was a sophomore this guy willed to me a thigh master because, "I know she'll need it eventually."  I take a little pleasure in reporting that this guy turned out to be a total loser just as I suspected he would. Then again, I guess I should thank him for providing me that extra motivation that I needed this week.  By the way, if you read my blog, he who must not be named, and you know who you are, you should really get a life. But don't worry, I'm not bitter or anything.

Finally, sometimes I get impatient that losing weight takes so much time and effort, yet nobody seems notice all of my hard work. The following picture helps me to keep a healthy perspective about how far I have already come.
