My eldest daughter (25) held the high score in DDR at the local pizza place. I tried DDR at the arcade my mind said yea but my feet said ouch.
I danced around holding the baby the other day when I skipped my beginners Pilates. I did a blog post on my other blog with Count Basie with a story how I saw him in '79 at Disneyland playing with no one watching. I sat and enjoyed it and told him I thought Disneyland sucked that there wasn't a crowd sitting there. But even the Count knew IT WAS DISNEYLAND. He just smiled. I made a playlist that I replayed and moved slowly rocking the baby to and fro. She loved it. I did it for 15 mins. I felt it in my arms the next day. So out of shape.

I'm not going down like that. I am still too young to have to be so careful. Weight has aged me. I am confirmed to this diet. It will rejuvenate me.
I will take my next set of pics at my next weigh in on May 25th. I noticed that the clothes I wore for my first pics were baggy, so next pics I will wear tight clothes.
Keeping to the plan: more or less
It was my daughter's birthday celebration. She was born Friday the 13th 23 yrs ago. They just about needed a catchers mitt when she came out in two pushes. For a delivery, it was pretty quick.
So today her friends who are also dieting with us, decide we will celebrate. We did a Mongolian bbq without the noodles. Yet it is still way above the carb level...I had planned, but these things are sometimes unavoidable. Could be worse...cake and ice cream which the kids got. I will make up for it by being extra good the remainder of the week.
My daughter has lost 12 lbs, they younger of the two Amazon beauties lost 11, the other lost 8. The Amazon Beauties have been on the diet since Monday. My daughter has been on it for 12 days. The eldest Amazon well I love her, but she talks about missing carbs and wants to plan cheat days every 2 weeks...It was hard not to agree.
