Entry 27: XXL
<-- I made my shish kabobs early. It's supposed to rain tomorrow and my mushrooms I had were going bad so we grilled out today instead. I wasn't that thrilled with the kabobs. They probably would have been better if I was able to soak them in some kind of marinade but I didn't want to do that because of the calories so I just seasoned them. Michael had the burgers. I didn't eat all the kabobs. No way I could have!
I have yet to work out today. I am debating on going for a bike ride, walk or going down in the basement to my "gym" lol..
My Mom gave me a shirt she bought for me today and it's too big!! I said Mom you should have ordered it in a smaller size and she said she did!! It's the same kind of shirt I already have except with a different pattern and my other shirts I have are 4XL and she got me a 3XL and it's too big!! Hello 2XL!
I went to the store earlier to pick up a few things to grill out and I beat myself up when I got home because I only have 1 banana left! Looks like I’m going to have to make another trip today or Tuesday because I’m sure the store is closed for Memorial Day.
Spooky thing! I have this book just for fun and it's over 200 pages. You are supposed to ask it a question and open up the book to the page you pick and there is your answer. Just a little bit ago I found it and decided what the heck and asked it "Will I be skinny in the next 5 months?" and the page I opened it to said "Pisces, The sign of the fish, assures that everything will fall into place." -It's so freaky because my astrology sign is Pisces! What are the odds? The book is filled with numerous things and that's the page I fall on...
Picture below: The hamburger and buns are for Michael but I got all this for $19!! There is another pack of hamburger patties under the first pack and I accidentally cut off the 3 pack of boneless skinless chicken breasts. The beans and peas will last me a while! I love a good deal.

Hi Mar! I just caught up on several days of your blog, and it made me hungry!!!! Your shishkabobs looked yummy....have you ever tried the Mrs. Dash seasonings? There's a ton of them and they really spice things up with few calories and low or no salt. ------- I don't put any stock in astrological signs and such, but I know how encouraging it can be when "things" seem to speak to you, or "signs" seem to guide you. I know you know it's all God when you hear those whispers and are motivated by things you see. I believe I gave your mom the first Bible that Shelly gave me. Get it from her and try flipping through some pages. I bet you'll be surprised at some of the things that will catch your attention. Before you know it, you will be rushing down here to Virginia to go to my cool church with me and hear some life-changing sermons!! I know you're just itching to get on a plane and head this way right now..... Seriously, I'm proud of your determination and I'm proud of all the research you're doing to lose weight the correct way. I have learned quite a few things from your blog; it's quite interesting. ------- Oh, and about the loose fitting clothes and smaller sizes...well, that's super! And I am sure you are inspired to stick to your plan even more when you see these great changes in your body. I loved the pic of the 2 body scans too. It definitely shows the stress and strain that weight can put on a person's frame. Pretty cool, and educational. Okeedoke -- it's past my bedtime again. Keep up the good work. I can't wait til the next time I see you in person. We'll have to go shopping! xoxo - Deb
