I don't want to be a sumo wrestler

A while back I got a Barnes and Nobel credit for some class action lawsuit. I completely forgot about it until the other day when they emailed reminding me about it. I promptly went online and downloaded:

Skinny Meals: Everything You Need to Lose Weight-Fast! 


Choose to Lose: The 7-Day Carb Cycle Solution

I don't know why I like to read these books, I know what to do. I guess it is just to reassure me that I am doing the right thing.  Every once in a while I get an ah ha moment. Last night, I took photos of these statements and posted them on my Facebook and Instagram.

Reading this combined with the workout DVD's I have been doing is another reminder that improvement is needed in the kitchen. I know I say that all the time. I did so well last time I lost over 60lbs, I don't know why it is so much harder this time.

I want to blame nursing the baby, but she doesn't make me stuff cookies and sugary treats in my mouth until I am sick. Control, will power, confidence in myself that I can become the person I was is what I need. I will get there and I will not be come a sumo wrestler.

Happy Friday!  Have a great weekend.


  1. Had to giggle at this. Sumo wrestlers! I used my B&N credit to buy the Runner's World cookbook.

  2. I completely forgot about that email! I got one from Barnes and Noble, too. Free book, here I come!

  3. Girl I am right there with you....I love my sweets and just can't seem to give them up right now....ugh!!!!

    I too like reading new books with the hope that something new will jump out at me and give me the A-ha moment to kick start my weight loss journey again...until then...we just keep doing what we can do right?!
