This is me also....but it's also a matter of keeping people out of my "stash"! I've just about converted everyone in my household now, but in the beginning, people would eat my chocoperfection bars with a Dr. Pepper if I didn't keep an eye on them!

Oh dear God Ang!!!! I am sitting here sobbing. Well first thank you for the cape it is freaking fabulous, had to go do a calorie knockdown tape quick, it was getting late, so then I came up and read your sewing journal, OMG I am bawling, it was so sweet, and reading that you were all stressed out about every little detail, for me, breaks my heart, LOL and the note from your son, OMG too sweet!! You are such a perfectionist and it always shows in your work, you must post your pics, you are such a better photographer!!!
Can we post your link here, I am I don't care what they say! LOL
http://starlightmasque.livejournal.c...03.html#cutid1
The rosy aereola just killed me, do you think I would notice that stuff, I can't sew a freaking button on, that is what kills me like the hem doesn't look like the hems on dresses I have it is so perfect and so smooth!! And it is just like the original WW one with all those stars I love the big bling actually! It is totally authentic! If it wasn't dark I would brave the cold and get that suit on right now, I must have a day to get the suit on and wear it outside it must be seen in good light!!! And hell I will even run around the block in it in my boots and cape!! You know I will! LOL I love to be a spectacle!!!

I love you hun, and this was a priceless and important gift I will always treasure, such a symbol of the long hard road that it was!!!

Aw, you girls!!! I am loving on you all so much right now!

I have always always wanted to make one, and she gave me the PERFECT opportunity. I didn't even have to buy anything new to make it... well, except the $2.99 to cover up those nipples!! I'm just sorry it had to be such a science expirement! I wish I could do it over and do it better this time, lol.

WHO IS NEXT TO LOSE 150 POUNDS!?! My fingers are itchy to make another one.

Start Date: 5/25/2014
Weight:
248 AGAIN, mini-stall!
-32 pounds from highest 280
68 pounds left to goal 180

Plan Today:
CAD/Atkins: Day 45
3 generous meals
No snacks
Plenty of water

Exercise:
AM dog walk: 25 minutes
PM dog walk: 20 minutes

Vitamins:
Rainbow Light Women’s One X1
Rainbow Light Cal/Mag X2
Nature Made B-Complex X1
NOW Amino Acids X4
Carlson’s Lemon Flavored Cod Liver Oil
Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar-2 tbsp
Ginko biloba X1

˝ cup coconut milk (not shown)
3 egg scramble in butter w/ 3 slices bacon, fresh basil, grape tomatoes, parmesan cheese

Costco albacore tuna w/ mayo, cottage cheese, lemon juice, Dijon, green onion, fresh parsley, garlic powder, dill weed, cracked pepper, walnuts, capers



Dinner:
2 small wedges queso fresco (not shown)

Daikon radish, red pepper, cucumber, celery, grape tomatoes




Do I want my golden years to be stolen by degenerative frail health and immobility?
NO!

Do I remember that a simple planned camping trip “cheat” punted me into 3 months of struggling to get back on plan, feeling like crap, and regaining nearly all the pounds I just spent a whole year losing?
YES!

Am I fully aware that eating outside of my regular 3 meals will jeopardize everything I’m working towards? EVERYTHING. Family: I’ll be irritable. Business: I’ll be unproductive. Health: I’ll get fat and lazy again. Seriously. Don’t go there. Ever.
Yes!

Am I still damn mad, focused and determined to do what it takes to regain my Glamazon status?
HELL YES!

Notes:

*The cracked pepper wings were okay. My mother and husband like them very much, but to me they are just meh. I prefer the hot wings.

My Positive for the day:
My new Lane Bryant size 20 jeans are feeling a little loosey goosey! Sweet!

Successful Day Count:
45!

Maybe by Vegas we can strut in true drag queen fashion and collect money downtown, LOL Bobby just saw your wings, he is like man I want to eat with her, LOL He likes cooking he is making a mean omelette now on his own he is into cooking he says he wants to be independent and not needy when he grows up, love that!!! LOL

Diva- I got the egg white protein, Jay Robb so I am amking those protein pancakes this morning, that is some spendy stuff but I have faith in your report it is worth it so I am going to try them!!!

Hope you dig the pancakes, Amber! It is pricey, but I'm on my way to Whole Foods for another container today. Last night I made myself a shake with it. OMG...1 C unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1 scoop Jay Robb Egg White protein powder, Salted Caramel Torani syrup, handful of pecans, dash of nutmeg, about 1 C of ice. Behold, the Butter Pecan Ice Cream protein shake. It was glorious.

Diva- the pancakes were awesome!!! Even my 11 year old son said I could eat these instead of regular pancakes, and no syrup so even if that egg protein is expensive it is worth it, it makes a lot of pancakes too, I am going to save the rest of the batter and give it another whirl in the bullet tomorrow morning! Trader Joes and Whole Foods are like over an hour from me, but looks like I might have to make a run soon, so they sell the Jay Robb egg protein at Whole Foods they might have it at Vitamin Shoppe too I got a $10 off reward voucher? That will be better than buying it off the internet and paying for shipping! Butter pecan shake sounds good, I dont have any of that Torani add it to the list I guess, LOL

I will have to try these. I need to get some of that egg protein. We have a Trader Joe's in Athens, but I have never been..maybe I need to go. I made some protein pancakes from a recipe from BFL. I need to get some of that syrup too.

The cape is amazing, Angela. You have a special gift -- not only sewing, but inspiring and supporting people.

Our house is atwitter with the possibility of snow tonight! I love the way the NW virtually shuts down when we get snow. It is like stolen family time. Fingers crossed!
