Okay, I saw this cartoon and had to laugh. I have a muffin top and I hate it! Maybe I should love my body and be positive about it like the girl in the cartoon… I will say my muffin top is shrinking a bit and I like seeing it shrink… Don’t worry, I won’t be wearing a cut-off shirt showing off my muffin top. That is brave. If you google muffin top in images, you will see a million women willing to wear cut-off shirts to show off their muffin top. Grossssss…. I have one and don’t plan to flaunt it and really wish others would do the same. LOL!
So this week went pretty well in diet and exercise world.
Last week I was happy to have not gained a pound and this week I lost a pound. I am happy with that. Slow I go… but that is okay. This is a long process. No magic is being performed. My grand total is 13 pounds in 7 weeks.
I have to say that this week was hard. I had tons of cravings for food that were not clean choices. I am guessing that was due to my poor behavior over the weekend. I gave in a few times. Yet, when I did give in, I kept those foods small in portion. My sister-in-law made an awesome mermaid cake for my nieces third birthday. She makes the best icing and then covered that icing in chocolate wafers (pics. later of the cake). Yep, I gave in and had some of that.

When I buy cookies I eat just four and throw the rest away. But first I spray them with Raid so I won’t dig them out of the garbage later. Be careful, though, because that Raid really doesn’t taste that bad. ~Janette Barber
