I used to blame myself for my dieting failures, but I have come to realize that I am not to blame!  Hallelujah!  Can you hear the choir of angels singing?!?

Let me explain....

Last night when I got home I was going to throw some clothes in the washer and then put my running shoes on and go for a run.  Tall Man was home and asked me if I was going to eat supper.  I said no.  I should have left it at that and put my clothes on and left, but noooooooo.....I had to ask him what he was making.


I had made a pot of chili on Sunday and he was taking the leftovers and making nachos.  I wish I would have taken a picture of it, because OH.MY.GOODNESS.  It was delish!  The bottom layer was tortilla chips, on top of that was the chili, then some salsa, followed by cheese, jalapenos, and sour cream.

It was a picture of heaven!

Who could resist?!?

Certainly not me!

After I stuffed myself with this delicious goodness I told Tall Man that he was to NEVER tell me what he was making for supper!

So that my friends is one of the reasons why I am not to blame for my dieting failures.

I have several more reasons that I will share with you later!

Thanks for stopping by and spending....

No New Weigh-In

It has been about three weeks since my last post and a little longer than that since my last weigh in.  I have been a bit busy, but not really sure what I was busy doing....

I have decided to change my weigh in.  I think I become so obsessed with that number on the scale that I lose focus on what I am supposed to be doing.  If I lose weight, then I celebrate by eating.  If I gain weight, then I become depressed and eat.  Either way I EAT!  So I need to do something different, like maybe wire my mouth shut!

The weather is turning cooler here, so I am going to get out a lot more and exercise.  There's no reason why I can't go for a run either early in the morning before coming to work or in the evening when I get home.  Actually there's no reason why I can't do both!  It definitely wouldn't hurt!

I'm going to stop eating out at lunch.  I know I have said that a lot lately, but that is my biggest problem!  I make horrible choices when I go out to eat.  There is only one way to avoid that and that would be to stop going out to eat!  Plain and simple.  Right?  Right.....

My next weigh in will be October 1.  I hope you'll stick around and see how I do.  I promise to write more posts to keep you updated on everything.  Maybe even throw in a recipe or two and some good coupon tips.

Thanks for stopping by and spending......
