7:00 – New Body, New Clothes. Help me dress this foreign body! Please 🙂
Basically…not much progress was made since my last progress report from week 16. The last 5 weeks were a wash, as I went on vacation and took plenty of liberties in that time. I reached my milestone briefly, but then bounced right up out of it not too much later.
But I’m back now…settled in, and ready to WORK! I will reach that milestone again, and I will go farther than ever.
I did, however, manage to work with my Nana to alter those slacks I had that were ginormous! Refresh your memory HERE.
And while I was on vacation, I picked up a new pair of jeans that fit without a belt or further alteration, lol. But umm, the whole shopping experience was dreadfully overwhelming. So many options available that weren’t there before…I haven’t a clue what to do! H-E-L-P!
I’ve experienced an increased sense of smell since starting this journey to healthy. I can smell food ingredients from a mile away.
The other day, a couple with 3 Papa John’s pizzas (I recognized the box) walked past me. They didn’t walk directly in front me…they were actually a little ways away, but in any case, we crossed paths.
About 50 ft later, when they were clearly out of my path, I could smell the pizzas…vividly. I could smell the fresh veggies, the tomato sauce, and the CHEEESE.
Man, I know Papa John’s so well. That was my SPOT! I was reminded of a coupon I had for a free pizza, and I was all set to cash it in and throw my eating plan out the window. But thankfully, the coupon had already expired. The Lord had saved me from myself!

I sure don’t! Although ever since seeing the movie “Sideways“, I stopped drinking Merlot for some reason.
