DairyFarmersWife's Journal, 04 December 2018

A miracle happened today and I bought cake, watched others eat the cake, was given a piece of cake that I let sit on my desk for 10 minutes, convinced the birthday person it was their cake and they should take it home, and then I may have violently or not so violently convinced the next person walking by my desk that they should have and eat the slice of cake. They seemed suspicious at first but they finally took the cake. Sure I probably seem slightly unhinged to that person but they've worked with me for 6 years so this can't be the first time.

I'm actually doing pretty well. I spent all day Sunday talking to myself and convincing myself that I will be in the best shape of my life before I hit 40. I have roughly 15 months to accomplish this. I ate great and went walking. Yesterday I ate great and tried to go to spin class but I somehow packed my 14 yr old daughters t-shirt and not mine. Which would have been highly entertaining but no. Just no. It would have been entertaining in a fat man in a little coat kinda way. Which is the song that I got stuck in my head for the rest of the day. Someday maybe I can stretch my daughters t-shirt enough to fit into it but it's not today. Today is fat guy in a little coat with steps towards not being too big for the little coat.

Today I'm ok saying no to the chocolate cake, hitting the gym in an oversized t-shirt, and imagining where I will be a year from now when my goal is in my sights.

Thank you. You made my day reading this. I’ve been there but did squeeze into my daughters shirt. Thankfully she’s only 2 sizes smaller at the moment and it drove me nuts so I changed back. It’s like wearing spandex that likes to roll up haha. You can do this though! It’ll take hard work, determination and sheer willpower but you CAN do it! I immediately cut about 500-1000 kcal daily and dropped 9-10# the first month. My bad. Wrong choice as I burnt out quickly and my body adapted after about 12 weeks. As your bio said, cut out some junk. I find cutting liquid calories out and cutting my portions in half worked well. Do you take your lunch to work? You can make a sandwich with chips and raw veggies for about 400kcal. 2% cheese, 45 kcal healthy delite wheat bread, turkey lunch meat, no sauces and baked lays. Tuna makes a good high protein lunch too. Hubby likes hard boiled eggs and jerky and cheese sticks. Write out a plan you think you can stick to. Then add in one treat per day like an apple, a 90 kcal rice crispy or a protein bar. It’ll suck the first two weeks but it gets much easier at the month mark. And good job on the cake! My family look at me like I’m nuts sometimes lol. I’ll beg them to eat things so I won’t. Good thing about having three kids at home! Best of luck to you!

I’ve been known to try and eat an entire 2 layer 9 inch extra icing cake 🎂 in one day. I’m not saying it wasn’t delicious but on the last slice I did have a stomach ache 😖. I don’t regret it lol

I can help you out with that toolman! I don’t want you getting sick so I’ll take one for the team and eat half for you 😉.
