Sunday was the "re-start" of plan to get some weight off!

For Breakfast I had a yogurt and a small bowl of oatmeal.

For lunch I made myself a salad consisting of lettuce, sliced grape tomatoes, shredded carrot, shredded pepper jack cheese, sliced egg and a bit of Ranch dressing.

For dinner I had a string cheese and a cup 'o noodle soup
(not the best dinner but couldn't get the energy to fix anything else).

and with it all I drank water - I did have a small glass of milk when I took a few pills for my migraine 'cause I have to have something in my tummy when I take them.

My scale is working again (thank goodness!) and I got a cloth measuring tape the other day so the below measurements are correct (I don't think the ones I took in the beginning were very accurate because I used a metal measuring tape). Tomorrow I am going to walk my dogs and bring the girls with me (if it's not raining). I am also going to work out on the wii, it really does help. Below are my measurements & current weight.

Hips - 57"
 Chest - 49"
Waist - 48"
Flabby arm - 17" (ya know the part that keeps waving after you do)
Upper thigh - 28"

Current Weight: 279 lbs

I am less stressed then I was when I posted before (well not really, just trying a different outlook) because I am trying to look at things in a positive light and not dwell on the negative. I realize I am going to have "bad" days and I will slip up from time to time but I am going to keep reminding myself that "I am making lifestyle changes not doing a diet"

(found here)

I am going to be following the "The Great Plate" advice because it's something I can do and share with my whole family and it will keep my meals more rounded like they should be. I want a healthy lifestyle that can be maintained and not do a diet that I will only lose weight to re-gain it back along with several extra unwanted pounds.
