Intimate Details

Talk about needing a little extra support: I had to go to the middle column of fasteners on my bra today for the first time in... well, actually, it’s the first time I can ever recall having to do that. Believe it or not I am fine with losing inches up there. It probably means I will avoid future back issues and that I will be able to go into many more stores to buy a brassiere. My husband, on the other hand, may be a little sad to see them go!

I watched the movie Julie & Julia this evening. I am not planning on giving film reviews on this site, but it was about food, blogging, and continuing despite adversity. How can I not mention it? Honestly, it was a really fun flick and for those who have seen it, all I can say is that the onion scene had me in tears, I was laughing so hard.

Obviously the meals that were featured in the movie had me drooling at a few points, although not nearly as much as the smell of popcorn as I entered the theatre. Plus, I could practically taste a couple of the decadent desserts that they showed. Yet what stood out the most for me was the dedication that both of the woman portrayed as they worked their way slowly towards their goals. I think that is definitely a trait that is needed to succeed at losing weight. More aptly, it is a trait that is needed to succeed at life.

- 9 glasses of water throughout the day
- 1 1/2 cups of Flavour Fusion Salad with low fat blueberry and pomegranate dressing
- 3 slices of cooked ham with mustard
- 1 toasted whole wheat English muffin with 1 light Laughing Cow wedge, tomato, and pepper
- 2 carrots with light ranch dressing

- 1 hour and 30 minutes of walking completed in two outings (30 minutes long and 1 hour long)


  1. Haha, I totally want to see that film as well. I went to the movies yesterday but saw 'Gamer'. I had to make sure to hit the store first for a healthy snack alternative, as popcorn is my dietary arch nemesis.

  2. Good job on the exercising!! I have been debating about going to that movie. Thanks for the info.

  3. Ooh, I'd like to see it.

    Twenty pounds is RAWESOME! ("Sick!" as my teenage son would say.)

  4. Good job with the exercise! I lost a cup size during my whole journey. I was kind of sad to see them go, but hubby doesn't seem to mind.

  5. I found your blog through a comment you left on another blog. I look forward to reading you regularly! You're doing a GREAT job!!!

  6. I saw that movie too, and really did enjoy it. I totally loved Meryl Streep in it, and after a while I forgot it was her. She was just so Julia! (I used to love watching Julia on PBS!)

    Have a great Sunday!

  7. Yum - movie popcorn. I could eat a large bucket all by myself!

  8. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!

  9. I've been wanting to see that movie...I don't know the younger actress, but I'd watch Meryl Streep in anything...she is the epitome of acting genius. Thanks for the tip! :)
