150.8 - New Pic

I added a new picture to my progress page. It looks like my waist is tiny, with the way I'm standing and with Sophie on the other side.

Trust me, it's an illusion.

But, I still really like the picture. My hair is darker & longer, and I'm just thrilled that I'm at a lower weight this past October than I was in October of 2007. Every year I maintain is a victory.

Last night DH wanted pizza for dinner. He's under so much stress right now, and even though I argued with him a wee bit about how it's not a healthy choice, he needed his fix of cheesy goodness. I don't know how much this makes me an enabler (as Vickie writes about today and has got me thinking big time about how I relate to my kids & husband). But I do know that I cannot make choices for my husband. He's an adult. He makes up his own mind. All I can do is provide healthy alternatives & feed him the best I can.

Anyway, I had pizza for dinner. Really good pizza, not delivery or frozen. And while this wasn't the best diet choice, I at least stopped at that. I didn't eat ice cream (it's still in the freezer, don't ask me why). I didn't eat Oreos. I didn't eat cereal. I stopped eating around 7:00 and that was that. Oh, I wanted to eat. But I read my book instead and just kept the food out of my mouth. It's a small miracle, let me tell you.

And I ran a bit yesterday after work. I had to work until 4:30, so I only had 30 minutes to run. But something is always better than nothing. It was dark by 4:50! The temps are awesome, though. Mid 40s is the best running weather, hands down.

Tonight, Swim Team for Sophie and hopefully I'll take a weights class.

I'd really really like to be back down a couple of pounds by Thanksgiving, so I have some wiggle room for pie. I love pie. Yum, pie.

Great picture! I've enjoyed the ones you put on facebook as well.

If you are going to eat pizza, at least it was really good pizza. I'm that way about beer. If I'm going to drink it, it had better be really good.

That is such a good picture Laura. Pizza is a difficult thing. I think it is probably the best non-sweet food in the world. But somehow it is something I can live without most days. I have been thinking and talking about it the last few days. I think it will be my birthday treat...

Good for you on being able to STOP and not let the pizza keep on (rolling your mind to other food).

did you make the pizza?

we make homemade around here - we use soft taco shells or whole wheat pita shells and make them in the toaster oven.

We put the 'crust' in by itself first - and then take it out - turn it over and put on the ingredients. NO grease this way and we can control the topping's quality and quantity. It is worth buying a toaster oven to do this - if you are a pizza family.

your picture looks GREAT. It looks like your shoulders are the widest part of you which is always a good thing!!!

That's a great picture. You look fabulous and Sophie's a cutie pie.

You know, at one time (cough,cough) whenever I'd want something that wasn't exactly the best thing for me, I used to try and make sure it was the BEST version of it. (Like 5 Guys fries instead of Burger King fries, etc.)

You did great!
