This Thing On?

Whoa. It's been almost exactly a year since I've written. I'm feeling inspired by this little thing I am doing, Biggest Blogging Loser. See, I have 12 weeks to lose some poundage and get svelte again. My goal? 20 pounds. It can and will be done.
After I had Harper 4 years ago, I lost a lot. I was ready, I was nursing 186 times a day , and it was easy. But I have gained a lot of it back. Not all, but a lot. This time I'm doing things a little differently and I am confident it'll work. I know my problem time for bingeing. It is specifically from 7:30-10pm. I go from one snacky thing to another until I'm certain I've consumed enough calories for an entire meal. Then what do I do? I go to bed. The perfect recipe for growing a large ass.
Despite running for the last 2.5 years, my eating has just been so mindless and I've used the excuse "I ran today, I can eat whatever." Not so. Running 3 miles a few times a week doesn't take the place of eating like a heifer.
So here is my plan. I am watching what I eat from morning until dinner. I am eating things like plain oatmeal with blueberries and a dollop of vanilla yogurt on top, for breakfast. For lunch, a turkey sandwich, without cheese, and a cup of vegetable soup. Snacks, I am really trying to resist. But, If I am hungry, I'll count out 10 almonds and a banana. Or have a string cheese. For dinner, I'm not changing a thing. I cook for my family and typically we eat really well so I'm not messing with it. Last night we had a Greek Salad, marinated and grilled chicken breast with roasted veggies and garlic Parmesan couscous. So my biggest commitment is that after 7;30pm, I don't eat. Not a single morsel of food will cross my lips. I can do this. It bugs me that I even have to think so much about it - I have a degree it this stuff for crissakes.
I weigh-in on monday and I'm not getting on the scale until then. Hopefully my plan will work. Wish me luck!

Alright, I'm here, and I'm listening! We can DO THIS, right? I should have joined the Biggest Loser, but I didn't. I'm trying to get to my goal "place" once and for all. We're going to Disneyland in April and I want to be able to wear tank tops (arms = my trouble spot) and a swimsuit and not feel good about myself - as well as have enough energy to walk/walk/WALK all over all the theme parks. Let's keep encouraging each other and we'll get there!
