I'm a FAT Girl...

Ok, so obviously I'm overweight...if you ask my Wii Fit I'm obese. But who's asking a silly little balance board right? No, I don't mean that I'm tipping the scales at a very unhealthy 70lbs over what "they" say I should weigh or the fact that my BMI is currently sitting somewhere between 36 and 37 when under 25 is considered "normal". I'm talking about my love of fat. My favorite cut of steak is a ribeye because of the wonderful marble of fat that can be found on most ribeyes. I just love a good piece of fire grilled fat. I realized just how much I have been sticking to good choices when I found myself cutting the visible fat off of chicken, pork, etc in amounts never before conceived in my kitchen.

The realization of just how much some my habits are changing came to me not as I made sure I got my workout in before I started my long days or as I racked my brain to make sure we had a healthy dinner on the table and had eaten by 7pm but rather as I sat at a fast food chicken restaurant and stared at the pile of wonderful crispy chicken skin and fried bits that I had taken the time to carefully peel from the chicken before I ate it. vWhat was leftover when I was done eating would never before have been left sitting on the plate. I've worked hard to make this week as successful as possible after what I am considering my two week haitus and I'm excited to see what the scale will read tomorrow morning. It will also be time for 12wk progress photos. Oh joy! :)

See...see what a beautiful pile of chicken skin I left behind??

I consider this a major success also because after my sons 2 1/2hr football practice I thought it only just that I ask where he wanted to eat dinner. Without the slightest hint of hesitation he answered and instead of squashing his choice I got on my blackberry and started trying to figure out what the best choice would be and how I could stay on plan and still have red beans and rice!! Unfortunately, what I had decided I would order was no longer available on the menu... ugh. Instead I ordered the fried chicken and lef this behind ....

Congratulations on your photo! You're looking fabulous! And I know exactly what you're talking about. For lunch I ate a couple slices left over lamb roast, and it was funny watching myself cut out the slightest hint of fat marble... amounts previously unconsidered. I was laughing at myself, but reading this I know I'm not the only one! :)

The things we do for our health & beauty!! My favorite unhealthy chicken related snack is a butter biscuit pushed into the chicken crumbs at the bottom of the bucket! Oh my!! :=/

And I'm with you on the ribeyes, definitely my favorite steak too.
