Farewell to Fat Friday!

I'm starting a Friday series to help me keep track of my weight loss, and to document my triumphs [or downfalls] each week. I feel like having this weekly check in will keep me accountable, and will help me actually stick to this. I'm not savvy enough to create a link up, but I would love if you would join me on this journey.
I'm using this picture for [Thinspiration]...It was immediately un-tagged from FB because my immediate thought was, I don't look like that...there's no way! But a picture doesn't lie, and that is why I have to do this, and I have to do it now!
PS: Don't I have gorgeous friends?
I officially started my diet yesterday...I had to grab a quick breakfast because I didn't have time to prepare the night before, so I grabbed some scrambled eggs from McD's, and had water. I had decided on Subway for lunch, but right after 11 we had 2 delivery men walk in our office door within 5 minutes of one another...The first was a sign from the diet Gods...(The reason I know it was from the diet Gods is because the only things dipped in chocolate were bananas...GAG!)
Yum-O...I forgot how much I love grapes...they went on the shopping list!
The second delivery was not from the diet Gods, obviously..Mexican Chicken w/a roll, and a Chocolate Rum Walnut muffin...Everything in moderation, right? Fortunately I had a lot of fruit from our Edible Arrangement, so I picked through the Mexican Chicken, and passed on the roll and muffin...I've obviously had enough of those in my day! Ha :)

This weekend is a Holiday weekend, and that always calls for a family function, which also calls for food. Can we talk about something for a second? The ladies in my family can cook...actually they can't just cook, then they COOOOOK! I mean, good, southern, fat, fried, sugar, butter...givin' Paula Deen a run for her money COOK! This weekend will really be a test, I know Nate and I will have a date night, and then we will have a family fish fry Monday, but I have to stick to this...if I don't do it now...when will I?
I hope you all have a great weekend! I can't wait to hear your triumphs for the week...and I am always open to advice, suggestions, or something that has worked for you!
