Pizza Pizza anyone?

I have to add...I told Rob I was doing the "Sizzling Hot for Summer Challenge" and his reply was "Why, you are already sizzling, get any hotter and I'll get burned". LOL. Such a sweetie I love my husband....he's such the practical joker. He keeps things 'interesting' to say, the least. We have discovered how to make a 'really' easy pizza using Pita breads as the crust, I'm on my protein day so am avoiding carbs, so I just ate the toppings. Anyways the pizza on the right is the one he made for's on a ritz cracker :) He pulled this trick a while back with "Sprite" Floats...see here:
There are a couple of great quotes in my Lean for Life book I'd like to share today:
"Motivation is a decision. Remind youreself several times every day why you'weightve decided to become lean for life."
"Losing weight---and keeping it off--has at least as much to do with what we put in our minds as what we put in our mouths."
Both quotes are from Dr. Stamper.
Anyways they just hit home with me today as I really believe that what you tell yourself affects how you act. I tend to sabotage myself a lot, and I'm really trying to overcome this. I am making many adjustments/behavioral changes etc in order to become "Lean for Life" and in order to get this weight off, so I can be healthier, and make it easier on my body to have a baby if that's in God's plans for me.

April 5th Protein Day #2

B: 2 Eggs, 1 Sausage Patty
L: Pizza Toppings
D: Salmon Patty w/cheese
Snacks: Cheese Sticks, 4 oz Cottage Cheese, 2 ½ oz Lean/Fat Free Cold Cuts

Exercise: 30 Min Walk Away the Pounds (I was going to not exercise today, but I just felt like it so I did)

Weight: 205.2# Woot Woot! This is my lowest so far with this journey! YEAH!

Here are my cutie pies: L-R: Munchie, Pipsqueak and then DeeJay is the one on the kitchen table. Munchie is 2 years old, Pipsqueak is 10 months and DeeJay is 9 years old. Can you tell we were in the kitchen cooking? This is Munchie's 'favorite' chair and he plays 'cute' so he will get little tidbits.

Awwww, YOU have a super sweet husband!! :o)

Wow, you had a great day indeed. That picture made my tummy growl :o) oh now I see that it's competition for you LOL, trying to tempt me arent you? ;)

Your kitty cats are adorable :) I used to own tons of animals (including cats) and I wanted to be an animal health technician (vet assistant) so you are living the life!! My husband is allergic to cats :(

This is quite a hungry feline crew you have! So adorable! Darn, that pizza looks good!

Thanks so much for your note! We are a family with numerous furkids (currently 2 dogs and 3 cats) too. :-D

Robs jokes are gonna get him in trouble one day! LOL ~ Your husband is very precious!

Heather do you know how precious you are? I sure hope so!! I am so thankful for C2L ~ to have met you, and a few others. I just wanted to tell you, that I know how it feels to long for that baby. Mind you my "wait" was only 4 years, but it felt like an eternity for me since I really wanted to be a mom since I was a little girl. I finally prayed one day going home from church or work or somewhere, and just told God "I know you have plans for me, you know my hearts desire. I am goign to trust you and stop doing things on my own. I need YOU Lord, to take over!".... I am telling you, not within six months of saying that prayer ~ we got to announce we were expecting our first baby on Christmas Eve that year.

I know it's hard! But, I am here if you ever need to talk, or vent.

Laughter helps keep a marriage strong. That's great that you can have that with your hubby.

The pizza looks pretty darn good too. I have been meaning to get out my whole wheat dough recipe. Perhaps I wont be able to wait for that and make a flatout pizza soon.

Keep up the great work!
