Good morning everyone! I'm feeling frustrated this morning. I had planned on jumping back on the diet & exercise bandwagon starting today, but I did a lot of thinking this weekend about what's going on with my body.
You see, I noticed that although I have gained about 8 or 9 lbs over the last few weeks due to not dieting or working out, I've gotten my breasts back, or at least they're mostly back. I know there was another thread about this recently, so I know I'm not alone. But with the weight I had lost this spring & summer, my breasts had gotten visibly smaller. The worst part is, they weren't just smaller, the weight loss made them saggy.
It made me feel so old - I know it's gonna happen sooner or later, but the weight loss sped up the process. Anyway, now that I've gained some weight back, they're looking better again.
So now I have this dilemma - do I lose the weight and be paranoid about my sagginess, or do I maintain my weight & be happy with my breasts? I've decided that during this challenge, I'm going to just try to eat a bit less than I have over the past weeks, but not really restrict myself or count anything - just slightly reduce my portions. And I'm going to really try to exercise regularly - mostly walking & FIRM tapes. I'm hoping that this will help me to look better without losing my boobs again. Whaddaya think, could it work? I sure hope so!

WF: Sorry you're still not well. Get some rest, and get better real soon, ok?!!
Dixie-girl: What's a funnel cake? I've heard of them, but never knew what they were. Sounds like you've got a busy day planned today - whew, you're making me tired!

SM: Wow, sounds like you have a busy day ahead too! Be careful in those holly shrubs, but have fun on the tractor! I like that kind of stuff too!
Sue: I definitely would have eaten the cake too, only I wouldn't have stopped at 1 small piece - so you did good! See, the scale even said you weren't bad! Enjoy your lunchtime walk!
Shel: Woohoo, you're getting close now! LOL on catching yourself w/the cookies - I've caught myself LOTS lately! I will pray to the hurricane gods that they leave you alone on your trip. And I will pray to the fat & calorie gods that they don't harass you too badly, either - maybe just a little!
JoJo: Here I am! I didn't have much time for the computer this weekend - had to give baths to 5 big dogs, shampoo carpets, go to 2 parties, the list goes on! But thanks for asking about me!
