Hey everyone!

I keep having dreams that I'm cheating. Like I'll eat a burger and say "oh darn I forgot to take off the bread!" or I'll eat a cookie and say "Oh that wasn't vegetables?" I feel really bad in my dream about cheating in my diet, then I wake up and breathe a sigh of relief that I didn't cheat. Haha, I think it's kind of funny, but while I am in the dream it is scary to me.

I am up SUPER early today! Gotta go into work, get stuff done, and hopefully it will all be done by 3:00PM today! Then my boss will be happy, I'll be happy, and there won't be anything on my to-do list! Maybe I can take Wednesday off. Actually, I'm not doing anything during the day anyways on Wednesday, so maybe I will go into work anyways to get some hours in.

I am sitting in my "skinny" jeans right now. I bought a pair of 18s on Black Friday, thinking "well, the ones I'm wearing right now are 18s..." but I couldn't even pull them up past mid-thigh. Now I can pull them on and button them, with only the slightest showing of muffin top. However, I have really big thighs so I don't think they're up as far as they should go. If I can get them up over my thighs, there won't even be any muffin top because my waist is slimmer as it gets higher (these are low rise).

So that's a happy thing! I really want to lose a lot of weight today because tomorrow dinner is all manners of delicious and none of it Atkins. I could bring my own, but it's just my mom and me (my sister flaked), so I wouldn't want to snub her by bringing my own. I will take one for the team, and eat healthy on Christmas as well as the rest of the weekend. Sunday might be an exception for breakfast, but I wouldn't outright eat a pancake or something. My aunt might be making quiche, and I only see her once or twice a year... but her cooking is PHENOMENAL! So I would have to sample it.

Wow, that was a lot, lol. I feel my writing getting more and more prolific as this diet goes on. I like to write, just haven't really had the motivation to keep a daily journal in the past few months. I think if I have a topic to journal about (my weightloss, things going on in life), then I'm more likely to do so.

Alright, time for me to dry my hair and get to work :) My dad is taking my car in to get the tires rotated today (yay Christmas present!) so I get to take his car. He has heated seats! I'm definitely looking forward to that.

Hugs,
Jen

Heated seats are the best. Hehe, I had to check FS before I left for work! Good-bye again, everyone have a wonderfully low-carb day!

hey Jen, So isnt it going to be SOO sad when in just under a month you wont even be able to wear those current jeans without a belt? =) I just got myself 2 new pairs of jeans (from levis at the great mall. hahah SALE!!) and they fit perfect and now im sitting here thinking "man i JUST got these and they are going to be too big next month" Soon your skinny jeans will be your big jeans. quiche sounds yummy, especially PHENOMINALLY cooked quiche. haha i hope you enjoy your breakfast thoroughlly. and i like reading long entries. Im sure youve seen by mine, im quite a talker!

I know. I got to work and I had to borrow an ESD coat (we have to wear these things so we don't shock things that shouldn't be shocked). Usually I wear an XL, and L bulges at the buttons, but I put on a Large and it fits REALLY well! Still could lose a few but at least I'm moving down, lol.
