Shopping for the Bridemaids dresses!

I had imagined what this would be like… Looking at all the beautiful dresses and having my best friends being just awesome and trying on a dozen of dresses so that I was sure that I was getting the right one, them being silly and goofy and oh so funny. They just surpassed everything that I could imagine and made this just wonderful for me.

I have the most wonderful friends and by the looks of the pictures, the funniest.



All shoulders. HUNCH!!! HUNCH!!





Amy? Uh.... not really sure.





LOVE the shoulder thing.. NOT





Sup.





There really aren't any words.... except well..... nope don't have any





Oh yeah...





I'm too sexy...

Pretty Girls






~I am sure they will kill me for posting these, but oh well, the damage is done.... muh-ha ha ha ha.

Nutrition...

Is a word I really don’t use much or really have ever used. 
Other word (s) not in Lindsey's dictionary:
 
Healthy
Portion Control
Fitness
 
Now, over the span of the last decade, I have been on diets and exercised and ate things that were good, but my basis on living and eating were not and never have been towards being healthy.  Being on Weight Watchers has given me another perspective on these terms.  Being healthy is important!!  Having the right nutrition is important.  I have a long way to go, but I feel that I am learning these things.
When I first started Weight Watchers, my lunch consisted of 100-calorie snacks and WW cookies and WW Smart Ones frozen dinners.  While those things are ok, they are not nutritional sound. 
My lunch now consists of stings cheese, yogurt, fiber bar, chicken, grapes and a salad.  For me this is like, WOW!  I am awesome!  I really could do this healthy thing!!
Why did it seem so hard before?
 
 
My motivation at this point is to get into a pair of pants.
This may not seem like a big deal to some, but to me it is.  I bought this pair of size 16 pants.
Yes people… I just told you that I CANNOT fit into 16 pants! Maybe someday I will tell you my weight. RIGHT! :-)
They are currently hanging on my wall. They are nothing special, just a pair of pants.  To me though, they are something I am working towards.  I would like to fit into these by February 20th.  I hope that with the combination of the gym 5 times a week and my “healthy” food choices, I can do this.

Weight Watchers

I decided to join weight watchers a week and half ago. So far I have done very well with this.
First week weight in 4.8 lbs lost. (Not bad) but only exercised once.
However this week, I am struggling a little.
I seem to be going back to that old habit of mine, boredom eating. As I have not (to this date) “cheated” but the urge is SO strong.

I decided to start blogging about the success in this weight loss because of this reason. I feel if I fill my life with talking and writing about my weight loss and things I want to accomplish, it will keep my mind motivated and on task. (Right? Or am I just kidding myself?)

Last night I had an epiphany though. I was able to for the first time in a week (I really mean two years and a week) to fit into a pair of jeans! Not a different size, but a different pair that was too small!!!! I was so excited about this! I couldn’t believe that in a week I had done just that little task. I felt very powerful and in control of my life, but that soon faded into boredom the next day. I don’t know why this happens to me. Do I really need to bring the clothes that I can’t fit into every where I go? Why is this so hard?
Frustration is how I feel.
My frustration for today is going to the gym. I know I need to go the gym, I know I should, but I really don’t want to.
Maybe it’s a little laziness right now that I feel.

Today: I will go to the gym! I will get into my car and go to the gym.
My workout goal: to walk 2 miles.
