Official Greg and Mike Pickett Day!

I can't thank the inventors of Muscle Milk Light enough.  There are so many flavors.  It really makes this liquid thing sooo much easier.  In my pantry I have: Cookies and Cream; Dark Chocolate; Banana Cream; Cake Batter; Strawberry Milkshake; Chocolate Mint; Chocolate Peanut Butter.  I think if I were limited to Neopolitan flavors I would be much grumpier. 

So I decided to cheat today.  The entire way home I thought about walking to Iji and getting tuna tartare.  I even went online earlier in the day to calculate the calories and fat.  One stop before mine on the subway, the train broke down.  I sat there for twenty minutes waiting for it to move again.  I ended up walking the 3 blocks. Avenue blocks are long!  Don't judge.  By the time I got home, I just wanted to go upstairs and skipped the tuna.

So that is two kinda awesome things for me.  One, I didn't give in despite hours of fantasy and mouthwatering craving.  Two, I got off of the subway one stop early and walked.  It may not seem like a big deal, but I wouldn't even have considered it a week ago. I would have sat on the train until it moved.  11.8 lbs may seem like a drop in the 150 lb bucket, but it has given me a lot of hope and dedication. I feel fantastic.


  1. Whoo-hoo for skipping the tuna!! And for hoofing it 3 blocks!!

    11.8 lbs is just the beginning, girl. You are kicking ass and taking names!

    Also, I heart you big time. <3

  2. 11.8 lbs! Whoa girl!!! Rock it!

  3. Good job! The Pre-op diet shrinks up your stomach and liver and gives you much less chance for complication... It is hard but what they call a necessary evil... I nominated you for a blog award... Check it out at http://mybigfatbandgeeklife.blogspot.com/2010/09/i-like-you.html

  4. Great job on the weight loss. There's more to come.

  5. Oh man, I remember the days when I would go out of my way to make sure I didn't take one step more than necessary. I would literally plot my way around parking lots and department stores so that I could take the least amount of steps. So believe me when I say how unbelievably PROUD I am of you for walking those three long blocks!! You rock!!
