Fat Butt Friday: Remind me Why I am doing this Again?

It was Thursday night, and there I was in the freezer isle at Wal-Mart with my nose pressed up against the glass door. Bryers Cookie Dough Ice cream was calling out my name, trying to seduce me into succumbing. My hand was on the handle of the door...

What does it matter, I told myself. Why am I even doing this to myself? Is this diet even going to work? If it doesn't, then I could be wasting my life away eating lettuce and tuna, when I could be savoring the sweet taste of heaven.

My hand was snaking into the freezer when I heard a little voice from behind me say, "No, Mommy." It was Nephi sitting in the cart staring at me with those big blue eyes.

"What?" I asked, not sure I heard time right.

"No, Mommy." He said again.

I sighed.

He was right. I am going to do this! No cheating! I am going to feel good about myself and I am going to be a sexy babe when my hubby comes home and Bryers is NOT going to stop me. Thanks, Nephi for reminding me why I am doing this!!

Alright, here are my stats for the week:

Goal weight to lose: 50 pounds
Weight lost this week: 1
Total lost: 14

How about you?!

Awww, that is so sweet that he said that :-) My weakness in the frozen treats aisle are those Weight Watchers ice cream candy bars. I always think, "But they're Weight Watchers, right? So I can eat more, right?!" And then I eat 3 of them for dinner. Ugh!

Ooo...funny post. We are doing a "biggest loser" competition with our neighbors (couples version). Losing couple has to spend all Labor Day with our combined 6 kids. Cool blog.

You're doing great! I'm so proud of the little guy for keeping you in line!

I'm down 35 lbs. but have been holding steady all summer. I thought I'd lose a bunch more weight but nope- hasn't been in the cards. Once school starts, I'm getting serious again!

Good work,I really appreciate .... there's no denying the fact that we love the delicate creamy and chilled taste, and there's no point in even discussing our built in taste for refined sugar. but these are the types of food that cause the massive insulin response in our bodies,which leads to overeating, cardio vascular, diseases and diabetes. Its the responsibility of every mom to provide a nutritional diet to their children. I was the the mom who constantly struggled to feed my kid the right food until I found a resource which changed the eating habits of my child .To learn more you can sign up on
