Progress, not perfection

So I've officially lost those last pesky 2lbs. I'm hoping I'll be down one more lb by tomorrow. I'd like to be able to post a loss for the week that is beyond getting back to where I was.

I just wanted to let everyone know that as of today I have a really solid grasp on my bbq tofu taco recipe. I need to make them one more time to figure out all the measurements and then I will post it, I know some of you are waiting. It's not the healthiest of all my recipes. ha. I hadn't eaten more than a protein bar today so I had four of them, but for now on I think two with a side salad will be my go to. The recipe I will pass along will be for a serving of 2,and it'll be around 430 calories. But it's the dynamite version of them with tofutti sour cream and daiya cheese, you can leave that stuff out as it's processed crap but every so often I feel like I need to do my tacos up right. ;) They are just crackling with flavor, I LOVE them.

I was feeling discouraged the other day so I took some pics so I could see some progress. There is even progress just in the last 10 lbs since my last pics. But anyhow, these are some of my (close to) before and during pics:

This is the difference in the last 10 lbs, I think it's most noticeable in my boobs and waist: 

Sometimes when things are tough and it's slow going you need these little reminders of progress.  Gotta remember, it's about progress, not perfection!

How Intuitive eating (did not) work for me

So I have spent roughly the last year and a half or more trying to lose weight by eating intuitively. I'm not really great at it. I have lost 30 lbs in a year and a half, it's moving at such a snails pace that I have finally decided that the only thing that works for me is tracking, and even though in my head I know I won't possibly do it forever, I have to go back to it.

So, Joey and I are tracking again, so far so good. It's only been a few days, but it at least hasn't been a struggle. I figure we will stay where we are calorie wise and after about a month and hopefully some loss (not being too focused on the scale though, it's been my downfall in the past) we can reduce our calories a little bit at a time.

I know this is the right thing to do, but I feel kind of down that I did so poorly with intuitive eating. Then again I probably wouldn't be fat if I were good at that sort of thing. :P Here's to being "On Plan." :D

Also, my job has finall…

I Was a Fat Bride

Our wedding pictures are the first thing you see when you walk into our home. 

Joey and I have been together for over 22 years. We've both gained and lost a lot of weight over the course of our relationship. Then we regained, and re-lost, you know how it goes. We got married on our 19 year anniversary, which is in March.  We had decided to get married just four months prior. So after what our friends teased was a 'brief 19 year courtship", we decided to just go ahead and do it. I know there are a million blogs and articles about losing weight for your wedding. This is not one of them. I had four months to lose weight. I don't really even remember what was going on, but I had NO desire to diet or attempt to lose weight and so I just...didn't. Joey lost a bit of weight so he could wear that fancy vest. I appreciate the effort, he looked handsome in it. :)

We thought we would never get married. We didn't see the point, we kind of still don't, and luckily, be…

Fluvia Lacerda....or, life's short, have fun.

So I just read this post about 'letting it all hang out' in the summer, by Fluvia Lacerda, a Brazilian plus size model. She. Is. Gorgeous.

First, let me say, my 'thinspiration' pics are always plus size models. I have no desire to be skinny. I want to ROCK my curves.

Anyhow, this is what the lovely Fluvia Lacerda looks like:

So she writes this blog post about how you should accept your fat body and don't care about the judgements from other people, etc, etc. I'm thinking to myself, she looks amazing, who is judging her? Then I google her and find a 'celebrity weight gain' site that is talking all kinds of smack on her 'chunky arms' and her 'expanding waistline'. I want to cry. Seriously. If you can look like THAT and still get insulted by these people (who are the equivilant to me, of frat boys yelling "fat bitch" at me from their porch) then I just hate this world. 
I ASPIRE to be as 'fat' and 'chunky' as Fluvia!…
