One Woman's Quest to Lose Large and Ugly Panties Forever

I've had it with ugly panties that fit my large behind. I'm done with clothes for the large woman that just aren't as cute as the clothes I wore twenty years ago. I'm tired of wheezing as I go up the stairs. I've got sixty pounds to lose - because on my fiftieth birthday, I'm dancing naked in a thong, dammit. And it better be pretty. This little bunny rabbit is hopping me down the weight loss lane. I wanted a pair of big granny panties rolling through the grass, but I'm not computer savvy.

The Sin of the Super Bowl

Well, I learned something: Never host a Super Bowl Party when you are on a 500 cal per day diet. However, all things considering, my errant nibbles were not too horrible: the chicken wings (four of them) were so incredibly wonderful I did a little dance. But it was my sinful descent into the Carbohydrate Castle that was the most delicious. I had not had any carb to speak of for about a month. I had 10 tortilla chips and 8 rice crackers. And about two inch cubes of brie cheese. Can I just say how much I love brie cheese? I wanted to roll around in the brie cheese like a dog rolls in dirt. I also had a small piece of.... SALAMI. Yesssssss. The good news was that I did not drink beer and that I also did not say "OH FUCK IT, IT'S THE SUPERBOWL" and really go to town with chowing down. I gained about a pound and a half on the good scale this morning, but I was expecting it.

And there's no place to go but down.

Darling Husband moved the tread mill back into the house. This means that I must get on it, with no more dithering.

OK Trusty Fat Loss Pals: How did you handle Super Bowl Sunday?

  1. Oh, I did not handle it well. I wrote in my blog post today how I was like a defiant child. You did a great job resisting such temptation! And I'm thinkin' the little happy dance you did after the chicken wings totally burned some extra calories.

  2. I did not do well at all. Beer and pizza!!! Yikes, I didn't get on the scale today.

  3. I OWNED IT! Check out my blog recap to see what temptation I was up against.

  4. I love your blog, so funny. I look forward to following your successes.

  5. I was good. Made a chef salad and thought my tummy was really hunry, after about 1/2 put the rest back in the fridge.
    I'll finish it tomorrow.
    I still chuckle every time I read you header. I really love that.
    Take care and have a blesesd week.

  6. I'm proud of you for not totally throwing in the towel, you rock! Onward GP, onward! xo

  7. We made a modified healthy chili and ate at home and ragged on the commercials by ourselves. I'm not ready for parties/party food yet.

  8. oh YES...not sure what path I took to come across your blog but i'm so glad I did...another "HCG'r"... righteous! looking forward to seeing your updates :) I'm feeling good, on day 36, down 21 (had a few "oops" days which i'm sure kept me from losing more..but ah well) feeling good and looking forward to phase 3 like you have NO idea!

  9. the nachos made me their bitch this year at the SB party, and there were cookies...

  10. New to your blog. Wow, I love your pure honesty over the Super Bowl! I did the same nibbling with a little more gusto. The queso and chips did it for me, and the 2 cupcakes I ate! Good for you to have a positive attitude about taking it back off.

  11. :) I love that you are behaving so well! I'm so proud! you're gonna do great :) I also miss your comments :P You should stop by sometime


  12. I was terrible the whole weekend and mad at myself for using a football game as an excuse to eat cheese puffs and burgers and whatnot. I've been extra good since to try to make up for it!

  13. I am ashamed to say , I was not strong like you! But, I was back on track Monday morning!
    Have a pretty day!!
    p.s. I am so proud of you!


Thanks for your posts. It's the best reinforcement I can have that has no calories.
