Battle of the Buldge...

I've had this ongoing battle ever since we got back from vacation. It's me vs. the scale and the scale is winning. No matter how hard I try I can't beat it! The number stays the same! I'm not one of those people who constantly worry about weight, and I am definitely a pro-eater of all foods, but none of my jeans fit! My "fat" jeans have gotten a little tight, and my "skinny" jeans (0r fasting jeans as I like to call them) won't even button up! I'm not writing this for sympathy or using some warped method to get compliments, it's just so baffling that a woman can spend hours at the gym, eat nothing but salad, and only lose 2 lbs. While a guy could do the same thing for the same amount of time and lose like, 17 lbs! Why does it have to be so hard??? I keep on wishing there was some sort of weight loss judge that could grant me clemency. The judge would say something like, "Well---I've noticed you haven't been able to turn down chocolate cake, and you seem to be a carb-addict, but I've decided to grant you 5 lbs in weight loss anyway." And with a wave of his hand, my 5 lbs would be gone and my scale would stop laughing at me. Sigh, if anyone does anything that works without the use of a weight-loss judge, let me know.

In other news, I've gotten to do all kinds of fun stuff lately. Tim and I got free tickets to the Duck football game last Saturday with my Dad and his girlfriend. We had a free parking pass, so we got to barbecue burgers before the game and everything! We'd never been to a Duck game before so it was super-fun to see everyone in their Duck gear and hear how loud it really is. We screamed our heads off and gave high-fives after every touch down. We won, the weather was perfect, and it was the last home game, so it was even more fun! Here's a pic of Tim and I living it up at Autzen.
Let's see, I saw the new Bond movie which was pretty good. Action packed, but slower paced than the first one. We took my Mom out to Olive Garden for her birthday which is always a good time for me because (as mentioned earlier) I love food! We had a farewell party for my brother who moved in with my Grandma in Calgary. Miss ya Ty! We had a movie night at home with all kinds of snacks and beef sandwiches and watched Kung-Fu Panda. Cute show. We also tried a new place called Chicken Bonz in Springfield. It was really good! Kids eat free and the chicken is sooo tasty. Try it if you haven't! I wonder why it's so hard to lose weight and all of my fun times revolve around food....sheesh

Oh the battle of the buldge... I am working on the baby weight right now and I hear you. I do however think that you always look so cute. It sounds like you have been having a lot of fun. Good for you. Can't wait for tonight!

The scale hates me too! Don't worry...I yo yo a lot worse than 5 pounds though! Urg. I even stopped drinking pop.....I KNOW! HUGE!!! Well, I mean I never stop actually drinking pop...but now I only have a pop once or twice a week. I've been walking the dogs pretty much every day too...sigh

Hmmmmm, I sure wish I had an answer for you. A weight loss judge sounds great, except that in my case, he would likely always rule that "there wasn't sufficient evidence to show that I had been DOING anything to lose weight." He'd probably give me a penalty of five pounds! If I were working out as hard as you and not losing weight, I would be bugged too. You DO look great, Jen, but I can definitely understand your frustration. I've never been successful at losing weight before. Every time I have has been a time when I wasn't meaning too. Go figure.

I hear ya. Kyle knows that on his day off it is ALL ABOUT "where we gonna eat???" That is what brings me happiness. NOT good. Well, I just lost (prior to this pregnancy situation..) 30 pounds. I exercised like a mad woman but it was also all about portion and I never ate past like 7 pm. I kind of went to bed a little hungry. I think it helped... ??

Jen you crack me up - you look great!! I love the picture of you two at the game.

And I LOVE Chicken Bonz... Kristine suggested that to me and we were only able to go once before we moved. It's so yummy!
