Day 4 check in

Today was terrible. I didn’t get a chance to exercise at all today. I came home from work and school and bam! Wedding stuff. Wedding events are so stressful when it comes to food. I had no idea that I was going to eat out with the wedding party today. I ate too much. And now I feel sick. And I will not be doing that again. I had my own dinner planned and everything.

I dunno how I’m going to get through the actual ceremony and party tomorrow.

Here’s my crappy check in.

So! Day One

So. My weight as of yesterday was 186.7. My goal is to get that down as soon as possible. Yesterday, I planned out a calorie limit and burn goal. Today I started it. I’m keeping my calories at around 1200 a day with a goal to burn at least 800 calories a day. This is so hard in a house that loves to make sweets every other day. >_< There was apple crisp today. It was around 300 cal per serving. I gave in and took two spoonfuls of it, which about a little less than half a serving. Anyway, I’ll put my records up daily for accountability reasons. I have used My Fitness Pal for about a year. It is far more robust than any other app or website I’ve used before to track my progress. I’ve found that I tend to do better with sticking to my plans when I record it down somewhere.

I didn’t meet my exercise goal today, but I will tomorrow.

My dinner was amazing, though. Pics or it didn’t happen, right?

We made fish tacos, which is under the foil off in the top right corner of the first picture. Grilled up some Halibut and Salmon–bam, delicious food. On the side, we made black rice. My Salmon taco was wrapped in cabbage, topped with hot salsa, tomato, green onion and cilantro.

It was delicious. I would have gone for seconds, but I was already at my calorie limit for the day. Tip: drink hot tea and water with your food and you’ll be set. It helps me get that feeling of fullness that my brain won’t give on its own.

Well, that’s about it. I’ll just leave you with the sinful fondue-style food I ate yesterday and will probably not eat for a very long time. Awesome stuff at The Melting Pot. I definitely recommend the food if you’re willing to unbutton your pants before the night’s over…and have a great deal of extra cash in your wallet.

This is my loving body repost of the day! I just have one thing to say: no matter what size you are, have fun dressing up and looking fabulous.
I may be plus-sized now, but I look damn good. Also, Pinup Girl Clothing has amazing clothes. I bought my one-piece there and I look like a sexy lady in it–fat or not fat.

:< I need to save up money so I can buy some of those dresses.

Fuller Figure Fuller Bust

This is a subject I have touched on before in this post but it is one that still bothers me!

It seems that fashion magazines like to ignore the larger ladies among us, and when they do suddenly notice us (I mean, how can they miss us?!) they throw us some useless piece of advice that basically tells us “You’re fat, cover it up in this vast dress.”

Well I am one big girl who refuses to follow those ‘fashion rules’. I believe in dressing to your strengths – and only you know what your strengths are. Yes people can tell you your legs are wonderful, but if you prefer to flaunt your cleavage and cover the legs then that’s your choice and your strength. Being larger does not mean you can’t pull off all sorts of looks. And just to show you that, here are some of my latest…
