Coming out of a fast food haze

We went to the wedding this past weekend. Since it was out of town we ate entirely too much fast food. I used to be the fast food queen...not any more. I struggle with making choices at fast food restaurants. My choices were fine, but all the sodium in fast food does not do me well. It takes me several days to get rid of the fluid I retain after eating fast food for a weekend.

The wedding wasn't too bad, despite the fact that it was outside in 103 degree weather. The ceremony was short and sweet and then we moved inside. I only had to have my dress on for a couple of hours and it wasn't too bad, but.....for the love of God.....why is it so damn difficult to get Spanx up and down when you have to go pee???

If you look really hard in this picture you can see a little bit of collar bone...yay me.




I have stayed the same weight for the past month. I am thrilled about this. I know, you are thinking I am crazy...but I have eaten junk, gone on mini vacays, had cookouts, pool parties, and attended a wedding out of town. I am thrilled that I didn't GAIN any throughout the month.

I brought my niece back home with me for a week while my sister in law goes on her honeymoon. My niece is 7. I now know why God didn't give me girls...because they would have never made it to adulthood. I am so not used to the screaming, squealing and non-stop talking...especially during morning hours when I am not even used to being awake.

I also made the mistake of taking this darling 7 year old to the grocery store with me. Big mistake. I now have cookies, cereal, chocolate milk and ice cream in my house. I was also talked into buying a Barbie, nail polish, Hello Kitty Band Aids, and sunglasses. Yep...it's a good thing I had boys.

Spanx are a product of the devil. I can't imagine how hot you were with them on.

Barbie you look great! I can't believe you don't like wearing dresses cuz you are gorgeous. I am also impressed at how well your hair held up in 103 degree heat.

Barbie, you are beautiful!!! The bones are pretty easy to see and as for girls!!! Gotta a 17 year old who will be lucky to make it to 18....enough said!!! My baby is a boy, of course he is 9 but if he gives me this much grief at 17 I may need to call for reinforcements!!!:)

I love that you pointed out your collarbone - that's my favorite thing to notice with the weight loss! You look fantastic!

Theresa said...

Banded Together said...

You look GORGEOUS!! I love the dress. Following you now too! Thanks for "finding" me. :) (ps something about saying that to someone you have never met, on the Internet, feels just a leetle beet creepy....lol!!)

Ronnie said...

UGH. Do boys usually not squeal and scream? Oh, and talk non-stop? Cuz mine do. "Mama needs some silence!!" is a common phrase in this house.

Sigh.

And also, a hint of collar bone? That thing basically poked my eye out. :)
