You didn’t think I’d forget did ya? 

Here’s a fun dress…

Universal Mind

Wowsa….don’t see me wearing that to the wedding. 😉

Actually, I did buy my dress…it’s not black, it’s cream with brown and green (imagine that) circles on it.  After I put it on again, I thought…why did I busy something sleeveless?  I need to start doing push-ups or something (got that flabby droopie stuff that swings when I wave). 

This week has been pretty good…exercise…good…diet…good…weightloss…down another 1lb (reminder – had to get back down to the original 7 lb loss), so I’m not complaining.  It really seems difficult this time.  I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m just going to have to cut out my Tim Horton’s bagel.  Just has to be done. 

Hope everyone else had a great week!!



Little Black Dress Friday – week 1 May 1, 2009

Spaghetti Strap Dress by Unger for Ann Taylor


Thought I would forget – didn’t you?   Hmmm, not too much to tell other than I’m still working on my mental state.  I have managed to start eating less…I’m just not in dieting mode yet.  I’ve dieted MANY times before and when I’m in the “mode” I’m pretty strict and am usually successful.  Even though I’ve lost 2 lbs this week, I’m still not in the “mode”.  I do fine during the day and then at night I get stressed.  I’m usually working at night and usually stay up late.  All I want to do is eat.  I’ve started chewing gum (sugar-free – thanks Diana) and eating suckers (unfortunately, not sugar-free 😦 ) to try to keep me from eating.  Any suggestions?


Also, I can’t exercise right now – oh no!  I can walk but I can’t go spinning (which is my preferred type of exercise).   I had an ugly cyst removed from my back last week and I can’t sweat for another week or so (not to gross you out or anything).  Soooo, that’s my excuse for not working out. 😉 


Oh, and another thing…why do I have an addiction to bagels?  Most of you know I get my Tim Horton’s bagel every morning (or most mornings).  I can’t seem to stop.  It’s like I have to have one or I can’t function.  It’s all in my head!  Ugggh! 


Thanks for your comments last week…I’ve thought about many of them this week.  Heather – I really need to invest in the journal thing.  Kathy – I’m all about 1/2 point kisses!  Jennifer – I’ve read bits and pieces of “The Secret” a couple of years ago….maybe I should dust it off. 


Next week will be better – I’m sure! 

Have a great weekend!

City Style Sleeveless Buckle Dress

OK, what?, huh?, hum?…what’s going on?  Welllll, it’s Little Black Dress Friday…  You see I have a wedding coming up in July.  Hubby’s good friend is getting married in New Hampshire and I have got to lose weight before then.  I have gone up and down 10-15lbs in the past year and I need to get my weight down and have it stay down!  If I post it here then I will be held accountable.  You gals…my blog team…my cheering section…my friends, I need you to hold me accountable.  Every Friday I will check in with my progress.  If I don’t…you can ask me what’s going on.  Every Friday will be Little Black Dress Friday.  Hopefully, just hopefully by July 4th…I can fit into a “Little Black Dress” for the wedding.  Any tips and tricks along the way will help.  This is it…no more chocolate…well atleast no whole chocolate bunnies ;-).  As I’m typing this there’s a Weight Watchers commercial on – see it’s a sign!!!! 

Thanks in advance for your support!!!!
