HDC Day 5- An NSV I've been waiting 14 years for...

Hey all..
I am going to knock the diet and exercise portion of this blog out of the way right now.

3 eggs 1 toast 310
2 cups
1/2 cup 1% milk 55 cal.
4 T sugar 180
total 225 cal.

1 latortilla wrap 50 cal.
3 Ounces chicken breast (stewed) 100 cal.
1/4 cup cheese shredded 110 cal.
4 black olives 35 cal.
1/4 cup fage 35 cal
2 T salsa 10
total lunch 340 cal.

1 eat right chocolate caramel bar 100 cal.
Right now I am sitting at 975 calories...I haven't eaten dinner.
which will be fish sticks and cauliflower.
so, 340 cals for 6 fishsticks and 60 calories for 2 cups cauliflower.
1400 caloires for the day.

As for exercise
47 minutes on the stairmaster,
My longest time yet!
I burned 400 calories.
Then I walked 1.6 miles...soon to be another mile cause my dog wants another walk.
so at least another 160 cals....
I will call todays burn in at 600 and leave it at that.

Now onto the news I actually want to talk about.
Well, even better...
How about I show you....

So, to the *sshole in motorpool who looked me dead in the eye when I was three months pregnant and outgrowing my size 8's...."Enjoy it, it's the thinnest you will ever be."
My words to him.
Suck it.

Big time.

No really.

From a Size 22/24 to a size 8 in 14 months.
It can be done.
It has been done.

So, Big hugs to you all.

Your size 8 wearing dogged blogger,

Hello Chris,

From a 24/22 to a size 8! Thats super awesome. Your amazing will power inspires me. And I love the way you document everything you eat.
And if I was able to achieve even half of what you have..I would be soooo happy!

Oooohhh, single digit clothing size!

Why do people feel that the necessity for tact goes out the door when they are talking to a pregnant woman? I'll bet besides what this tool said you heard a couple of these too: "Enjoy your sleep now, you won't get any for the next five years. Hehehe."

Does this mean you are going to start trading clothes with your daughter? I bet you're going to be like that mom in the detergent commercial who borrows her daughter's top and then gets a stain on it. The kid notices that it's gone and asks mom about it, so mom has to do whirlwind laundry while kid is at school, (how convenient, so that she can wash it and the stain is gone) and then sneaks it back into the closet with the kid none the wiser. Nah. You would have done laundry in the middle of the night and your kid would never have known it was missing. That's ninja borrow/replace style. It's a whole new twist to parenting. Pretty coooool.

Chris, mazel tov on your achievement! And to all the people who ever wrote any of us off for what we were temporarily, assuming it was our permanent condition, just wait and see how hard we can work for what we want!
