4 Pounds, Dude!!

Holy mother of pearl, I lost 4 pounds in one week on these Tai Slim shakes!  Can you BELIEVE that?  I'm thrilled.  I think it's time for another end zone dance, this one courtesy of my mom:
Do you see where I get my spazziness from?  Loooove that woman.

I don't think I expressed myself very well in my Cylinder post.  I kind of talked about how I hate how society makes women feel pressure to be a perfect size, and then I jumped to "I'm going on a diet!"  I realize now that I didn't transition very well. :)  What I guess I was trying to say was this:  I'm not dieting because I want to fit into the Hollywood mold.  I'm very, very against that.  Which is why I've historically not been a big fan of dieting.  That and the whole I'm-so-hungry-that-I'm-pissed-all-the-time-and-want-to-gouge-my-eyeballs-out thing.  What I was trying to say was that I'm dieting not because I want to have a perfect body, but because I don't want to cringe when I look at photos of myself.  That is my emotional goal.  My physical goal, which I wrote down on my goal tracker packet, is to lose 12 pounds.  But my emotional goal is not to cringe when I see photos of myself.  That's all.  And I think that's a good motive for dieting.  A worthwhile motive. 

So anywayssssssss (as Nacho Libre would say), I lost four pounds in one week.  And I had to also take my measurements again.  I lost two inches off my bust (Which is so sad.  Why does the weight so easily come off the one area where I don't want it to come off?), one inch off my waist (Hallelujah!), 1/2 inch off my hips, and 1/2 inch off my thighs.  I'm loving that I'm seeing immediate results.  Nothing is worse than working your butt off and not seeing a dang thing change.  Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.  So this is great.  I'm not sick of the shakes yet; I still think they're delicious. 

Can you imagine if I lost more than just the 12 pounds??  I mean, in reality, I should lose 30 pounds or so, according to that body mass index chart thingey.  So if I happen to lose that much, I won't be sad.  That's for sure.  But we'll see.

Here's to not cringing at photographs of myself anymore.
