however, since quitting my very busy and active waitressing job at steak-n-shake, i have put on 20 pounds. i'm utterly ashamed to even admit it (but stay tuned, i intend to admit lots of stuff here in cherished blog-land.) i can't really imagine how, chasing around these children. plus, i only worked 18 hours a week at steak-n-shake so i just don't get it. but my skinny jeans officially don't fit now. infact, almost none of my jeans fit, certainly not comfortably.
but i'm pretty excited about visalus. when i received it, i found it came with a suggested work-out routine that is practical and not over-whelming. today i drank my shake for breakfast and lunch and had absolutely no problem at all with hunger control. i also already felt better energy than usual, and did not have a headache today for the first time in weeks! for dinner, i still didn't feel compelled to over eat. i made thanksgiving foods for my hubby tonight because he wasn't home yesterday. but i ate ramen noodles, and mashed potatoes with no butter or salt. so i am encouraged by a good start because sista, somethin' gotta give!
when i mentioned a possible weight loss of up to ten pounds in the first week, my brother chastised me because i want to be healthy, but rapid weight loss is very unhealthy. i told him, he had misunderstood my intentions, i don't care about healthy, i want to be pretty for my husband.
yep, that's pretty coldly shallow, please don't abandon me on the spot because i will have lots of non-shallow things to say too, don't worry. but that's the situation as of today.
