Still quite large...


Yes its true, I'm till quite large but.....I'm feeling a bit skinnier lately. When I look in the mirror I can actually see my waste starting to take shape and my stomach seems to be shrinking instead of "hanging."


My current weigh in...wait for it....wait for it....is 254.2. IM SO THRILLED!! I need to take some measurements but I don't feel like doing that this morning. I have officially been at this "loosing weight" thing now for six months. I think that is the longest I have been able to stick to something without giving up.


Friday was really difficult for me. I work at a daycare center so of course we had all kinds of fallish parties going on (cant call them Halloween parties). Of course the goodies were plentifully. I wanted to hog out so bad. I don't know why but it was just a bad day for temptation. I grabbed one cookie and ate it. (It was SOOOO good) I decided to go back and grab a cup cake and two more cookies and bring them back to my desk. I put one cookie in my mouth, chewed it up, and felt to guilty so I spit it out into the trash. I did that with the cupcake and second cookie as well. I know it sounds weird to chew up food like that and spit it out but it works for me because I can have the sweet taste in my mouth (which satisfies me) but I don't have to deal with the guilty calories it would give me.
Above is a recent picture of me and my oldest daughter (isn't she precious?) I need to take some more full body photos. I am still in a 22 but I have a feeling that after another five to ten pounds I will be able to fit into my 20's.
So that's my update.

I think you are doing awesome! Besides, looking better are you feeling better? I hope so. One thing that I notice as I slim done that I am beginning to want my picture taken. I fit into my size 18 but couldn't wear them for long because I like to breathe.

Way to go Rebekah! You look amazing and you can tell quite a difference from your most recent picture when you look above it to your other pictures at the top of your blog. Quite a transformation and you look fabulous.

I must say, that is QUITE the idea right there! I could totally get by on chewing something up and spitting it out just to get the taste. What a great idea! I know it might seem gross to lots of people but I totally understand it. It's not that we actually want to swallow it and put it in our bodies that makes us eat it, we eat it because (as most Americans do) we eat because something tastes good.

Do you like yogurt? There are some awesome chocolate flavored yogurts out there, and vanilla too! I remember eating one that tasted like vanilla frosting. Also, when I was trying to lose weight once I chewed some gum when I wanted to eat, it helped just get something to occupy my mouth :)
