I have made a plan. A weight loss plan that is. The rest of my life is planned for me.
I try, but really….when there are dirty diapers and goats and “Mom this paper is due today and I forgot!” things happening all around you….planning is futile.
“Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated.” I love Captain Picard.
I seriously need to lose some weight. Plus Dad is now losing weight and I can’t let him win.
So my friend and I have a plan and I need all of your help.
We are going to start eating four 4oo calorie meals a day. Actually, I was thinking about starting with three 400 calorie meals and a 200 calorie snack. Plus exercise (yuck).
I will make my menu plan on Sunday when I make the family menu. Then I will have a list of what I can eat each day and have the ingredients all prepared. This eliminates my biggest problem…..thinking of something to eat quick because I’m too busy so I eat junk.
I want to lose 20 pounds by Easter. Actually, I want to lose 75 pounds by tomorrow, but I realize that this may be unrealistic.
Here’s where you can help. Ask me. Hold me accountable. Point and laugh and ridicule if you see me cheating. Say things like, “You said you weren’t going to eat that.” Unless you’re my husband. Don’t do any of that if you’re my husband. If you’re my husband (and most of you aren’t so you can skip this part), tell me I’m beautiful no matter what and act like you have no idea why I’m on a diet at all. Husbands are allowed to lie to their wives about this one subject. I’m pretty sure it’s in the Bible somewhere.
So that’s the plan.
Dad, you may be 14 pounds ahead already….but I’m gonna catch up!
