DairyFarmersWife's Journal, 29 January 2013

I'm starting the 7 lbs off in Feb challenge today. I weighed in this morning surprised by the little loss since I've been having a secret affair with the spiral ham that's in the fridge. I sneak pieces of it when no one is looking, when I pass through on my way to get another glass of water, and well... whenever I walk by the fridge for any random reason. The love affair stops today. Not because ham is bad or anything its just that I'm pretty sure I'm not tracking what I've eaten accurately.

I'm also going to start really getting serious about the workout challenge I'm subjecting myself to. I will finish. I may not be able to walk, raise my arms, or sit without crying but I will finish! I'm going to need the added boost since I've also decided to say goodbye to my dear friends the magic boobs. I will miss the extra calories burned, the extra cup size in the morning, and the convenience of not getting up in the middle of the night to stumble to the kitchen and make a bottle. But.. all good things must come to an end. Little man is 8 months old and even if I do nurse I end up getting him a bottle 10 minutes later because he's becoming an Ox. The little man is solid and way too muscular for his own good. Yesterday he was doing chinups using his highchair tray. Maybe he was saying put me in! I'm hungry! Or... he's demonstrating his abilities to be a monkey and warning me the bookshelf is next.

The good news is I got a compliment yesterday from the cashier at the caffeteria. She thinks I'm losing weight. I haven't lost any more since the last time I saw her though... maybe my boobs are shrinking. Maybe it was my enormous hair day making my face seem slimmer. I don't care. I'm taking it! I look slimmer. Woohoo!

Yeah I think nibbling has been my enemy too... Don't have to go home on lunch like I thought today so I'm headed to the vitamin shoppe. Gonna pick you up a present so you will have to see me now ;-). I never got to have magic boobs since my milk never came in with either of my kids so be thankful for the time you had lol. Chasing him now will just be added activity so yay for that.

Awe you don't have to pick me up a present I'd see you without one! lol Besides I owe you a lunch. I wonder if my boobs will shrink now. Do smaller boobs make you look smaller? I would think bigger boobs would make you look smaller because they would be bigger than your waist. Then again.. if they're smaller they wouldn't be as distracting and people would notice your waist more. I'm gonna miss magic boobs. It's the only time my boobs are perky anymore.

Ya I fell subject for a handful of popcorn yesterday out of my toddlers bowl.... Then I was seriously? Why? Thank goodness I have really small hands. As long as it isn't where I can see it I do fine. Did you ever see the commercial with a lady wearing over sized jewelry and carrying a large purse to make herself seem even smaller? Your enormousness hair day made me think of that. I think it was a yogurt commercial.

oh I know that lol! Yeah I always said my boobs were too big and I din't lose them until the last 10 pounds and now they are smaller but droopier... UGH! Not fair!

Ha! My girls have shrank a little since losing 25 pounds but can still fit in my expensive VS lacy "over the shoulder boulder holders"! However, I've also lost between my belly button, which now looks "sad", and the girls so Hubs says it makes the girls more "outstanding"! Which is okay with me!

Yes, so unfair thynes, when women shed the weight they lose their boobs, when men shed the weight they find their _____s! You fill in the blank with whatever you call it. I had a couple of words to use but cannot bring myself to fill in the blank, if you know what I mean!

At least little bits of ham is probably better than my peanut butter that I sneak at night. Take that compliment! You probably do look slimmer because you are! Good luck with your challenge!

I can't eat ham because the nitrates in it make me swell up like a balloon. Maybe after the ham is out of your system you'll experience a Swoosh!
