Since I have met Matt I have gained way more weight than I care to disclose. It's basically ridiculous. Prior to meeting him I was a regular at the gym and was at a size that I was proud of... But then there was Matt. He brought me out of a rut and showed me what it really meant to be happy. Unfortunately, the happier I am the fatter I get. I finally looked at myself the other day and thought, "what in the world???". I absolutely have to lose this weight! It has gotten completely out of control. I'm funny in a way because I have abundant will power when I make my mind up to do something, but if I have even the tiniest bit of me that doesn't really want something bad enough I have zero will power.
I made my mind up a couple weeks ago and I am proud to say I have stuck to my 1200 calories a day ever since. I think counting calories has to be the best way to train yourself to make better choices and eat smaller portions. I have been doing really well and I'm super proud of myself. Yay me! ;)
Yesterday Matt said, "I can really tell you've lost a few pounds, especially in your..." and I said it at the same time, "face." I always lose weight in my face first! What is that?? I mean honestly that is the absolute LAST place I'm worried about! What about my thighs, my belly or my chest for starters? Great, now I can fit into that smaller ski-mask I've been eyeballing...
Anywho, yesterday I had the world's biggest craving for chocolate. It was literally all I could think about. I had to have some so I ate vegetable soup and an orange and water and saved up my calories for my evening treat. And, I must say, it was sublime... There is an adorable little cafe right behind us on our same block called Ciocolat that has amazing desert, coffee and breakfast. I got a piece of chocolate truffle cake with blackberries and my latte and Matt had yucky expresso:) I even gave him a couple bites of my cake. We sat on the patio with the twinkle lights and I got my chocolate cake and even stayed within my calories for the day:)
Can you tell how excited I am? :)
