One day soon...


One day soon, this will be me.  Slim, sexy and cooking up a great meal for my family.  And don't forget the collarbones...she does have lovely collarbones.  Hubby and I were out shopping tonight and I saw Giada's cookbook and thought it would be a great inspiration for my husband to learn to cook some more Italian foods.  I have only seen her briefly on television, but the recipes in the book looked very good.  I will let you know when we try a few of them.  I must admit, it is comforting to know that I don't have to avoid things like pasta altogether.  I know I can have a serving, enjoy every morsel and be quite happy.  In the past, I would avoid eating pasta because I knew I couldn't stop at one serving.  I realize now, with the band, I can stop.

A major NSV to report tonight.  I went to a favourite clothing store to buy another pair of pants like the pair I picked up over a month ago.  I asked the sales lady  for a size 18 thinking that I would soon fit into a smaller size.  Much to my surprise, when I went into the fitting room and took off the pants I was wearing from before, I discovered the tag said they were an 18!  I actually had to go back out and request a pair in size 16!  I nearly fainted dead away when I slipped into them and they fit!!!  Yes, they were very snug, but they fit!  I haven't worn a size 16 since my early years in university.  Wait...it got even better.  The sales lady was so excited for me, she congratulated me and gave me a high five!  Wow!  Now I am even more motivated to keep at it and get into that 16 pant with room to spare. 

I am now sending everyone here happy, positive, inspirational energy.  I hope everyone has a fantastic day tomorrow.  I am going to do something I haven't done in a long time tomorrow.  Stay tuned...
