WIW: old pictures

It's WIW again y'all!
Thanks to all of you who have been following along. 

Since I had BJ hide my scale last week, and since I'm away from home anyway (see this post), I obviously won't be posting my weight today. 

What this post WILL talk about though, is this picture: 

Probably 2007

I found it on Facebook. That's me in the blue, in case you don't know what I look like.
I guess I need to get my picture put on the homepage, huh. 

I thought I was fat then. That's the sad part. 

Around the same time:

June 7, 2008. Sister's wedding. 

I can't believe my arms and face used to be that thin. And, of course, I thought I was chunky here too.

Again, thank god I darkened my hair. 

Although it was sad seeing these photos, knowing I didn't appreciate the body I had then, it's actually a little exciting. And inspiring. 2007-2008 ish were the later years of college for me. I was 21 ish. I'm just 26 now, so it's not like I'm drooling over my high school figure. I'm drooling over something that is entirely possible!

Once I STAHP feeling sorry for myself, I need to get back to it, and start killin it again. 

Now to share a little recipe me and Beej tried the other night. 

I bought this grilling basket thing from walmart for around $3. It has a matching side that hooks onto the side shown in the photo below, it's really easy to operate. 

I sliced a zucchini, brushed it with olive oil and then sprinkled on some Cavendars (Greek seasoning sold at like every grocery store on the planet). I hooked on the other side of the basket and then BJ grilled them for a few minutes.

The basket kept the slices from falling into the flames and made it to where you can flip them all at once (the handle gets a little warm, so beware!) 

They were so yummy! And took only like 10 minutes to get from slicing to eating. 

That's it for WIW you guys. I better get my ass in gear and stop eating cheeseburgers before April 17th's weigh in gets here and I gain like ten pounds.

We got this!! We can do this!! I'm 40lbs heavier when I was in high school. Ugh. My goal is to be less what I was by the time of my HS reunion in 5 years. :)
