I know, I know

I'm not supposed to love this body. I'm supposed to like the old, "chubby" Kristen. That's the right thing to do. I'm supposed to say, "ohmygod! You're too skinny! Eat something!"

I looooove this body. I WANT this body. Please, tell me I'm too skinny and I need to eat something. Because when you say that I am going to go all mushy inside and love you forever.

Day Two: My pep-talk from JJ

JJ emails this to me:

"...So, suck it up. Think of all the miserable shit you do! [She is not kidding. I had a job that made me miserable for two years straight and I didn't quit. I did grind my teeth and fuck them up, though. Hooray for me! -d]

You can crank this out for two weeks and kick start your weight loss.

You've already lost one pound and nine more are antsy to hit the road. Seriously, once you've lost 10 (or even 5) you're going to feel so fucking good about doing this that you're going to really bear down and lose another 10. Truuuuuuuuust me. I've done this (multiple times.)

What are you eating for lunch?

What are you eating for dinner?

And I responded (since you asked in comments in the last post):

"Ok – so today I had coffee with a little half and half
Lunch was 2 small scoops of cottage cheese
A piece of salmon
A small salad with about 10 black olives, a few slices of onion, about a tbsp of grated parm cheese and fancy lettuce
NO BROWN RICE. It wasn’t even heartbreaking to walk past it. I was all, “Go to hell brown rice.” And that was that.
For dinner we are going to dinner at some restaurant for the mother-in-law's b-day. So I am going to ask for grilled fish, which I know they can do."

So there you have it. I am actually not that hungry right now. Maybe that means I ate too much?

I had that "I'm burning fat" stinky breath last night (do you get that, JJ?), so I know something good is happening. I also tried on my skinny jeans. What a terrible, terrible sight that was. No matter. I will be back in them in 2 months.

Day One.

So, here I go.

Dude, I want to wear Fashion again... yes, that's fashion with a capital F. Even 15 pounds ago when I was pushing acceptable limits of body size, I still had something of a waist. It's gone, JJ. You know this. I am the Kirstie Alley who eats croissants between meals.

So, here I go. I can't go to hot yoga tonight because I have a company party thing. So, my goal is to not eat crap.

And so far today, I have had coffee with 1/2 & 1/2. Can I put 1/2 & 1/2 in my coffee?

Boss me around. I need to attend your weight loss boot camp. I am determined to start wearing real clothes again. And soon.

I am going to start working on that I-eat-nothing moral superiority that you have, and that is working for you. (That's not slam against you, friend. I like it when you get militant about your eating. The whole "I eat clean, you pigs do not" thing appeals to my bitchy side. I need to put it to good use like you, kid.)

You asked: Typical Food Day

This is what I ate yesterday:

2 eggs

4 oz homemade taco beef
12 oz of lettuce, raw spinach, tomatoes, onions, cabbage
1/2 cup salsa
1 tb of ranch dressing

4 oz grilled chicken
4 oz of grilled zucchini slices
1 oz of canned beets (without sugar)
3 oz of sliced tomatoes

1 oz of wheat germ (+ cinnamon)
2 tb of butter

When I have plugged this info into a calorie counter it's right around 1200ish.

I am not starving, I'm not eating "low carb" really (because of all the veggies) and I swear to god I am not hungry.

This is blowing my mind

A 140 pound person burns 955 calories in 90 minutes of bikram yoga.
Almost a THOUSAND calories.

In one session of sweaty yoga.
And that's for a skinny person.

I am well above that 140 and that means I burn a whole lot more than a thousand calories.

For one session of sweaty yoga.

Fuck you, swimsuit

Can you tell me why I put this on today?
It causes a muffin top on the gd model.
