      Ditto. I look horrible in my pic, and there hasn't been too much change since then. Unless you want to photoshop my face on say Jennifer Aniston's body, that would be the only way I am posting a pic!

            Horrible is the biggest understatement in the world!!!
            Since It was my bacholorette weekend, we ate out everymean... and no there were NO health choices involved. Oops!
            So not only did I eat like a cow but I drank like a fish and am a big fat heffer.... but here we go, its a new week, and six weeks to go. Kevin doesnt wanna be marrying a whale on beach!

              I think I was pretty good. We've been doing P90X all week and I did a ton of yardwork saturday and sunday (I HATE raking BTW!)

              I've noticed that since I've been working out so much, I've been so much less hungry, I hope that keeps up!

                    Jill that is awesome! And Sarah don't feel bad it was your bachelorette party weekend and you had to splurge and have fun.

                    ~MINI VENT: Okay my worst nightmare came true. I am plateauing. I cannot for the life of me lose an ounce! I started incorporating weight training so I don't know if that has anything to do with it but all of a sudden I am much hungrier and have less motivation to do anything. The fact that my weight is not budging is making the little devil on my shoulder keep nagging me to go eat a cheeseburger to feel better. Ughhhh!! Summer is almost here!

                    Okay now that my rant is done I wanted to tell you guys about a plan I came up with. I don't know if its going to work but I'm going to try my best. I have a barbecue this weekend and 2 more coming up in the weeks to follow. These things can be very dangerous. So I came up with a plan with FI to try to stay healthy. I am going to bring my own cooler. FI bartends at night and he is going to make me a huge cooler of Crystal Light (5 calories) with vodka. I don't like strong drinks to begin with, so he really won't put a lot of vodka in it. This way I can drink but at least I won't drink binge on beer or other fatty liquor drinks.

                    I absolutely love cheeseburgers and I know I won't be able to resist. So FI is going to bring me whole wheat hamburger buns, fat free american cheese (30 calories per slice) and a healthier version hamburger patty. FI promised to cook it for me so that this way I can enjoy the barbecue as well but not eat something ridiculously fattening.

                    I am also going to bring my 10 calorie jello snack packs in case I want a snack. This is my plan for a healthier barbecue. I don't know if its going to work but I'm going to try my best, and I figured I would share in case anyone else wanted to try it instead.

                    Some other options we came up with:

                    Drinking liquor with zero calorie, zero carb soda like Sprite or coke.

                    Bringing fresh strawberries to blend in the blender and adding tequila to make natural margaritas, instead of using the margarita mix that is chock full of added sugar and carbs.

                    glenda those are all great ideas for a bbq! another thing i do is marinate a chicken breast with soy vey teriyaki sauce, and then get a whole wheat pita and fill with lettuce and the chicken breast. since my FI got a grill a few weeks ago, all he wants to do is grill every meal! so instead of hamburgers, i opt for chicken. another good low cal thing i do is use frank's red hot sauce on grilled chicken. i am the chicken queen if you ever need recipes! also, grilling veggies is good -- just toss them with a tablespoon of quality EVOO and dash with salt and pepper for taste (or mrs. dash is great too, and theres no sodium in it -- sodium makes you retain water). also, grilled broccoli is amazing -- just use a pastry brush to lightly cover the florets with quality EVOO, then throw the whole crown on the grill. when its done, chop off the stem of the crown. it has an awesome woody flavor. asparagus grilled is great too!
