Look at Me Baby

Hi I have been missing this picture for awhile and found it today. This was taken this fall at work. I grabbed these pants to wear to work thinking they were new pants and the first time I bent over at work they almost fell off, so a co-worker of mine grabbed a camera and snapped this shot before I safety pinned them up. I cannot believe when I look at this where I've come from. These used to fit. UGH!! I will never go back there.




Also, the fam and I went out to lunch today and we went to SUBWAY. I usually get my healthy sub and some Baked Lays. I ordered my sandwich, grabbed my chips and started eating. I said to Keith, "I can't have these" and handed him the chips. It was then that I remembered that I had given up chips for 2006. I allowed myself to have 1 little chip and I was fine with that. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I am very excited and proud of myself. GO ME!!!

Well, we are off to a Hockey Game and I need to go pack some of my healthy snacks, so I'm not tempted to buy dippin' dots and junk like that. See ya!!

handin' those chips over, especially after you'd eaten one... that's hard!

Melissa! Look at you!! You look great! That was your new haircut, wasn't it? Are you keeping that cute hairstyle or letting it grow out again? Good for you on the chips too! My biggest fear is that I will pass a candydish somewhere and throw back a few M&M's without realizing what I've done, then it will be too late, no candydish will ever be safe again, hahaha! I'm an all or nothing kinda girl. What self-control you must have to only eat one!

Wylee, Yes I am keeping my new hair. The old hairdo was for the old me. :-) Thanks for the encouragement. I need it guys. keep it coming. Good job on the candy. You can do it. It's ok if you throw back a couple without realizing it, it's just what you do after that that really counts. As soon as I realized I shouldn't have the chips I gave them up. If you eat a couple M&M's and stop that's good. If you eat a couple and then inhale the whole bowl, you'll have a problem. :-) Keep up the good work.

later,
Melissa

Didn't Lays corporation say "Betcha can't eat just one". I think you proved them wrong on that one. By the way, not sure I'm strong enough to eat just one. Way to go!
