THIS IS WHAT 50 LBS LOOKS LIKE!

As of late, I seem to be yo-yoing on the scale...up & down, up & down, up & down. I try not to place much emphasis on the number I see each week on the scale, but sometimes I do get caught up.  Each day I remind myself  that weight loss revolves around more than a number on the scale. For me, weigh loss means:
What does weight loss mean to you? 

Yesterday, my boys and  I made our weekly trek to the grocery store. I turned down the spice aisle to look for some garlic powder; however, a huge bag of sugar caught my eye. Upon closer examination, I discovered the humongous bag weighed 25lbs.  I thought to myself for a moment...Since beginning my weight loss endeavor, I managed to shed 50+  lbs. With that in mind I quickly grabbed my camera took the following pictures:
THIS IS WHAT 50 LBS. LOOKS LIKE!

I needed this visual to remind me of my weight loss accomplishments! And let me tell you, I tried to lift those heavy bags of sugar by myself, but I eventually enlisted help from my boys. I cannot believe I carried all that weight on my petite frame. When I hit 60 (soon, real soon), I plan to grab a wagon out of the toy department and fill it with 60 lbs of something.

Now, I challenge YOU to take a "THIS IS WHAT ___LBS LOOKS LIKE" picture.  Post your pic on your blog and leave me a comment so I can check it out!

GO! RUN TO THE GROCERY STORE, TAKE YOUR PIC, AND POST IT!!!

The turkey ain't the only thing that got stuffed...

Just a quick update...last week's Thanksgiving shenanigans and high jinks brought with it, a 2.8 pound gain! I confess, I overindulged. But, that happens when you fail to plan. You know the saying ( I use it quite a bit here on my blog), If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.


I started my week off with the best intentions of staying on track, but my resolve weakened in the presence of ALL decadent desserts. I handled the Thanksgiving dinner with ease; however, my downfall transpired courtesy of the cakes, cookies, and candies that mesmerized my palate with their ooey gooey sugary sweetness!


Despite my holiday weight loss debacle, I vow to not lose any more ground this holiday season. I hope the new Weight Watchers Points Plus program gives me the spark I need to steer my weight loss into a more positive direction...more bout the new program later...LOTS MORE!


In the midst of my overindulging I managed to find time to get out and enjoy life. My boys and I attended the Usher OMG Tour...O, O, O, O, O, O...OMG! I picked up this jazzy ensemble from my new favorite store, FOREVER 21! A couple of months ago, the mall expanded the original FOREVER 21 by combining the woman's, men's, and accessories stores...AND they added a plus sizes and children's clothes.


Some of the clothes tend to lean toward the younger crowd, but after I weed through the hoochie wear, I tend to find a few age appropriate piece.


In keeping with our yearly tradition a few family members gathered at my aunt's house the day before Thanksgiving for GUMBO! Check us out, line dancing in the kitchen...GOOD TIMES!


ME AND MY MOM
Well, that concludes my Thanksgiving recap. One last thing, I apologize for the lack of blogging and blog following...no excuses. There's just no enough hours in the day!


DEAR SANTA,


CAN YOU PLEASE BRING ME TWO ADDITIONAL HOURS FOR EACH DAY? THANKS. THAT IS ALL. O, AND CAN YOU BRING ME A HUSBAND TOO...A GOOD ONE. THANKS SANTA.


SINCERELY,
TRINA
