"Weight"ing on Abby

So I was super optimistic that come August 1 Tony and I would have this profound turnaround on our lives and our eating habits. BOY WAS I WRONG. We had an agreement that come August 1, we'd change our way of life. We'd eat better, we'd exercise, just get all around healthier over the next year so that we'd be prepared to take on chasing a toddler. It sounds great right?

We even started a walking program (that we invented) called Miles of Love. It was our goal that we would walk at least 500 miles before we brought Abby home. (One lap around our block is one mile). Anyway, if you've noticed the side bar I even put a place where we would update everyone on our progress. Yeah, well, it hasn't changed from the initial post. We haven't walked any more. Yeah, I'm weak, and lazy.

And on top of that, I think I need to go on Dr. Phil to talk about this food addiction I have. Forget cigarettes, forget crack, forget alcohol.....I just want something fried and/or sweet. I'm not picky, I'm not craving anything specific...just fried, and hot, and greasy...or sweet, I'll take that too.... Go ahead, laugh. I know it has only been 1 1/2 days but man......when you're watching everything you eat and trying NOT to think about food...food is ALL you can think about. It's pathetic.

People have their things...their hang-ups...mine, simply, is calories. Not sure how Tony's doing w/ all this. He doesn't eat really bad to begin with. *sigh* and I REFUSE to let him lose more weight than me....although I know that's bound to happen b/c he's a guy. I'm hoping it'll get better once I get back to school, and we'll find that out in just a short week or so.

Anyway, feeling kind of crappy, and cranky, and hungry, and pathetic. Maybe it's just the withdrawl (sp?)period and it'll get better, right????? OK, well, just pray for us. (yes, I'm even including Tony--see, I'm a good wife) Pray that our cravings diminish and that we start feeling better, even good enough to NOT want that bad stuff. Of course, please continue to pray for our Abby girl. She needs her mommy and daddy to be healthy so we need all the prayers we can get! Ok, I'm going to go NOT eat something now. :)

Guys! Re: the comments you left on my "good" luck at your expense. I posted this in my comments. Please forgive me. :)
I am soooo sorry. You are totally right. I shouldn't have been doing the snoopy dance at your expense. That's the problem with being so lucky, I forget humility!! :( I do have to say though, I am so grateful I made that cut. I feel so bad for those who could have to renew, and I pray and advocate for them that they will get there and back in time, and our "worst case scenario" doesn't come true. Thanks for helping me see the errors (Arrogance) of my ways!

OK - I reread the offending comment as well, and I see what you mean! I reworded it as follows:

Good Luck: It's taking even longer for the folks with LID's after us, so we are lucky we got in when we did! If it had taken much longer, we would have had to redo a lot of expensive and time-consuming paperwork.

I hope that is better. (You know I do this at work (oh, the shame) and I sometimes go a little fast, and don't always make my idea as clear as possible.

Thanks for keeping me honest.

HA!!! Okay, only those of us who grew up in FC get the M&M's in the pocket joke!!! That was a good one! Anyhew...good luck with that whole loosing weight thing. Try veggies--they're good for you. I like carrot cake, pumpkin bread...hahaha. Okay, I'm a Sadler, I LOVE food and all that is associated with it, although I don't have a food screen saver. haha Think of all of these as pregnancy cravings! You're allowed to gain "baby weight" so eat up, sista! Hang in there, kiddos, it'll get better and you'll be so trim! Good bye Lane Bryant, hello Ann Taylor!!

UGH. We're right there with you. Like, right as this very moment in time. Afternoons are the worst for me. I'm ok until after lunch... then I go up to the lobby at work and drink about 3 cups of hot chocolate. When I crave fried things, I go to Cracker Barrell. I'm not helping, am I?
