I Don't Need It To Be Flat, But I Damn Sure Don't Want It To Be Fat

Of course I am speaking of my belly.  I have no unrealistic expectations to have washboard abs.  I just wish to decrease my belly size to a comfortable level.  I've been learning about what amount of calories I need to lose weight in a healthy way.  So many articles contradict one another, but every nutritionist I spoke with all agree 1200 is a healthy number for me.  In all honesty I thought that was too high and some days I just can't eat that much, but I try to at least reach 1000.  They say if you eat less than 1000 you can actually gain weight.  I'm no expert, so I listen and learn.

After all of this I am seriously contemplating going back to school to become a nutritionist, but I want to do it for free.  I want to help those who struggle with weight loss and feel alone in their struggle.  We'll see how it plays out, but I'm more than sure that's exactly what will go down.  Stay tuned for that!

Today I intend to exercise, eat healthy and put uplifting mail together.  I'm very grateful for the blessings that are upon me.  Hey, I sure could use some healthy dinner ideas.  I welcome any suggestions as my brain has drawn a blank.

God Bless


  1. You will be amazing!! You can do it!

    P.S. I love the title of this post :-D My thoughts exactly.

  2. Dear Tabitha...One of the things I had to learn is that women are supposed to be round. Once that sunk into my brain, I stopped worrying about my tummy shape, which is maternal after giving birth to four children.

    Supper ideas...since harvest is upon us, what about a nice squash casserole? Slice a zucchini or summer squash, add a can of crushed tomatoes, sprinkle to top with corn meal and cheese (I like Monterey Jack, but Parmesan or mozzarella works, too.) Bake it at 350 degrees for about 1/2 an hour (till the cheese bubbles) Yummy!

  3. So glad you are making giant steps. good for you for wanting to be a nutritionist. all good will come from this. keep up the great job. take care. hugs.


You bless me with your presence! Tabitha♥
