Detours off Britta Blvd

I've been trying to start dieting again since I would like to at least lose 10-15 more pounds, perhaps 25 if I can really keep going, but right as I started again in earnest, I got sent on that cruise for work, then these all-day testing sessions had us staying captive for lunch, so they kept ordering really good pizza or BBQ, then Disneyland indulgence, so I'm starting again. I went to Target for contact lens solution at lunch (no I don't use Bausch & Lomb anyway, don't worry!) and saw a 2 piece bathing suit, turquoise crocheted over a tan/flesh lining, and the top was triangles but was actually DD! I used to look best in the triangular tops, but the past several years the triangles haven't been big enough for coverage. ;) I tried it on, and I wouldn't necessarily want to be seen in public in it right now, but it's not too bad...so my goal is by summer or at least by the end of summer to feel like I look good in it...wish me luck! :)

(Yes, the bathing suit is not teal to match the Briata, but bright turquoise is the 2nd best blue/green shade to teal and I've been told turquoise actually goes better with my eyes, so it's just fine... ;)

Update: here's a photo of the bathing suit...now to get my waist & tummy to look like the photo! :P

no picture of the bikini? (not ON you, just a picture of it in general -- you've got my curiosity piqued!)

are you trying any specific diet? i find i can't stick to them, but my best friend lilybunny has lost a lot with south beach, and it's staying off -- she looks amazing!!

Hmm...I'll see what I can do about a picture of the bikini...maybe target.com has it somewhere if I search enough?

I'm not going to meetings or paying any fees, but I'm doing Weight Watchers Flex Points again, which is how I lost 25 lbs in 2004. I've only gained a little back in over a year since I quit even trying to diet, so I think that's good. I would like to lose more now though. I had to work to find stuff that was satisfying enough to eat since I didn't like a lot of the recommended food, but by counting the points I could make up my own menus that were less work too. Ballpark beef fat-free hot dogs are only 40 cal each, with a slice of fat-free cheese and a real hot dog bun with a diet root beer to wash it down, that's a 3 point lunch which is really low when you're aiming for 22 points per day. I ate a lot of Lean Cuisine for dinner. With a 2 point fat-free sugar-free Jello pudding I made myself with nonfat milk for dessert, fat-free sugar-free Swiss Miss cocoa (50 cal per cup), light Laughing Cow cheese (1 point per wedge), and homemade fat-free sugar-free yogurt each morning with 2 cups blueberries, I was able to lose about 1 pound per week, but never any faster than that.

Ah...this is it! Now I just need my waist & tummy to look like the photo...heh!

ooh! pretty! :-)

best of luck with the dieting!
