Little red dress

Hanging in my closet, amongst all the big billowy clothes that I own, rests a little red dress. It no longer fits me, but I am loathe to give it away. This dress has magical powers. My husband says that when he saw me in this dress, he decided that I was the girl he was going to marry. He pursued me with a single- mindedness that took my breathe away. So I have a mission of my own. I would like to fit into my red dress by my husband's birthday which is in May. To achieve this goal I have been doing Zumba twice a week and spinning twice a week and have changed my eating habits. Here is a typical day for me:

1/4 cup oatmeal with one cup of skim milk
One boiled egg

Two cup of baby spinach, one cup of romaine hearts with 2.5 ounces of chicken

Cup of no fat cottage cheese

1/2 cup of rice and chicken

Night snack:
Handful of almonds

I've been doing this for the last six months and I've lost 9 pounds already. Just a gazillion more to go!

The night my husband decided to marry me - my 26th birthday

  1. What a great eating plan - very inspiring. I'm going to start being strict about my eating too (although I already had some Lindt chocolate today - whoops...I mean starting now...)
