I had my lemon water first thing and then made some oatmeal for breakfast with a cup of coffee. I missed lunch today and made another batch of turkey sloppy joe and that is what I had for dinner. I haven't had any green tea today and am halfway through my water jug. I still have yet to workout but I have plans to before bed.
My mind has been going crazy with wedding ideas! It's sinking in more and more that this is really happening! lol - After we are married Michael and I will have the same initials! How cool is that?!
It's crazy how your body changes when you lose a lot of weight. I never would have thought I would have lost so much weight on my hands. Michael wasn't sure what size ring to get me so he guessed and got me a size 8. When I put it on, it fit so perfect! It was like it was made for me. It's not tight and it's not loose. It amazes me because my ring finger used to be a size 10!!!! What a great motivator this wedding is going to be for me and my weight loss! I am growing my hair out, and hope to be down to 170 for my wedding day. It is not set in stone yet but we are thinking about having it June 21st, 2014 - It's a little over a year from now so I will have plenty of time to get to 170! Right now, even though I have lost 87, I still weigh 251 pounds. I guess I must carry my weight well because everyone I tell that to says I don't look a pound over 200. That makes me feel good :-)
I went grocery shopping today. I got turkey bacon to try. I have never had it so I a excited to see if i'll like it! It's funny how when you stop eating fast food, you realize just how much they shove it's advertising down your throat on a daily basis. I can't go anywhere, public or online, without a hamburger getting forced in my face. I have been proud of myself for staying away.
