Very brief Bodybugg update

Just a quick one tonight. I have to work on some layouts for Paper Heart Studio tonight. Anyway. Today wasn't quite as bad I was thinking it might be. I was down 1/2 lb. So that is a total of 7 pounds in 4 weeks. So I am okay with that. I still think I have some water weight going on right now and that is why I'm not down more =). Or maybe that is just wishful thinking. Anyway, I have achieved my first goal several weeks in advance so I am onto the next phase. Going to liberalize my calories a bit (I get about 100 more...yeah...that's a lot!!!!!!!!!) and decrease my daily deficit (meaning I don't have to burn as much) which if I go according to plan should be down 5 pounds in the next 4 weeks. Just that permission to eat a little bit extra of food has already lifted my spirits =). So he worked my butt off today. My legs still feel like jelly and that was 10 hours ago. It's good though....like that feeling every now and then. Ohhhh.... and even more exciting, I have explicit instructions to have one day in the next week where I am to eat enough to have a 500 calorie surplus for the day. Think I'm going to save that for Sunday when my parents come. I'm assuming we are going to go out to eat? Now.....what should I use my extra calories on.....I'm just like a kid in a candy store. Anyway, got to run. Have a good day!

No....I think we should just plan on bread and water Sunday! Not really. Your father (Mr Skinny) woudn't let us do that. He has been eating like a pig lately. No offense to our lovely swine type animals. We plan on going wherever you wish since it will be your birthday on Monday. Oops...let the cat out of the bag (so to speak) Anyway....good job.

I have another question? How do you get the finished product to say like Paper Heart. Is this all done by pictures sent over the internet? You don't mail the actual layout do you? Sorry to be so dumb as to how this process works but I don't seem to really know. And if you just send it over the internet. How do you get it to be so clear, etc. How about the ones published in the books, etc. Thanks for the info.

Everything you have seen so far on the computer is scanned by me with my scanner and uploaded by me. For the Vegas deal, I am sending them to her for her to display at her booth at the convention. For publication, you mail the layout, they photograph it or whatever they do and then send it back to you when they are done.

That is nice to know. I am glad you get the ones back that you have to send. That would be quite sad otherwise. Hope they take good care of them and don't wrinkle them!!!!!
