I went into Borders yesterday and parked myself in front of the weight loss section. After sitting there browsing through countless books promising that I’d drop X amount of pounds, I realized that I didn’t need a book to tell me how to lose weight. There was nothing in any book that I probably don’t already know. So I left.
I am getting married in ten months. I can’t help but wish that I could lose about 15 pounds before the wedding. I know how to do this; I just have to put it into play. I’ve lost weight before. I need to lay off the sugar and refined carbs. I haven’t read Bethenny Frankel’s Naturally Thin, but from what I hear, I need to employ the Bank Account method of eating. If I eat something not so healthy, I never really adjust the rest of my day to make up for it. Today there was a cake in the kitchen for someone’s birthday. I told myself that I could either have a piece of cake OR have my yogurt and almond snack. Not both. I thought about it and realized that I actually wanted the yogurt.
I made a good soup for dinner. It was from my Cooking Light 5 Ingredient cookbook. Poblano and Corn Soup. I had this with a mini pita.
And, although I ate this yesterday, I wanted to show a picture of it. The first tomato from my plant!
