My love of baking things. I really need to find another recipient for all the baking I do that is neither my husband’s or my stomach!

I’m thinking of taking a timeout from drinking as well mrsbee — how are you finding it in social settings?  like another person’s wedding perse?  I feel like I can do it personally — but I would just get annoyed with everyone asking if I was pregnant!!

I’m having a hard time letting go of Applebee’s honeybbq boneless wings. I am seriously addicted.

Hot wings. Hooter’s, Buffalo Wild Wings, Wing Stop…whatever. I can’t help myself. They are just too incredibly good. I seriously would be Miss Hot Wings if I were a Bee.

Well, and alcohol. And I know I won’t cut alcohol or hot wings completely out of my diet (my friends are just as into beer and wings as me! so not helpful) so I do my best to limit alcohol to the weekends (and maybe 1 day in the week if it’s been a rough week) and hot wings as little as possible. Cutting back on eating out has helped with the hot wing addiction, which is helpful.

Other than that, I go to the gym 2x a week, try to do at least 2 DVD workouts (30 day shred, mostly) at home, and try to eat as healthy and responsibly as I can, without beating myself up over it when I slip up. Having said that, I’m planning on kicking it up a notch in the next week and work harder, eat better. We’ll see. ^_^

I am absolutly addicted to cape cod sea salt and vinegar chip and baked cheetos! I keep a bag of one or the other in the house at all times! I only eat a few (like 5 chips, seriously!) a day which helps me feel like I am not depriving myself.

I also push myself at the gym really hard on Fridays and Mondays to make up for drinking on the weekends. I have limited beer and other high calorie mixers and try to stick to diet soda or sode water.

Humarock–I guess you can always say you’re driving? That usually works for me when I’m out with my friends but am totally broke. I want to have fun, so I go along, but I drive, meaning no money spent on alcohol.

Also works when you don’t want to drink at a wedding/bar for calorie reasons too without people eyeing you up and down to see if you’re increasing. ^_^

Yeah I think I’ll be pulling the "designated driver" card a lot in the coming months, I guess I have to get rid of my little stomach pooch so that no one gets the wrong idea! 🙂

So, I’ve had a really hard time losing weight and I finally got so frustrated that I went to the doctor who gave me the simple advice: avoid white foods (potatos, rice, white bread, gravy, noodles, etc…), eat a ton of veggies and drink water! That first one was super tough at first, but I have lost five pounds in the first nine days and I am still eating as much as before, just different substance! I know that is a lot, but my doctor assures me it is fine!

I had to say goodbye to cookies and chips.  *sigh* It was a rough break up, but well worth it.

I just eat too much junk food.

I know that I am capable of getting out of that habit though because the spring semester of my freshman year in college I lost 20 pounds. I wish I were disciplined enough to repeat this now!

I began doing aerobic exercise 5-6 times a week, eating a low-fat, low-sugar, high-fiber diet and cutting out carbonated beverages. Worked like a charm, but it’s hard to keep up without a major lifestyle overhaul.
