Operation: Not the Fat Friend (ONTFF)

so, occasionally my girlfriends and i go on the crazy-person type diet and workout plans.  none of us are super overweight (in my opinion) but living in San Diego, it's hard not to feel insecure sometimes!  
Thus, we developed ONTFF - 
Operation Not the Fat Friend
ONTFF propelled me through deployment, encouraging me not to succumb to the temptations of the Wardroom (Officers' dining room), vending machines or ship's store.  
ONTFF helped me beat out post-breakup blues and get more fit instead.
Now, I'm calling on ONTFF to keep me from sitting here and binging on Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches during these two months in freezing Rhode Island, and to instead inspire me to start a sick 2011 workout plan. 
"thin" spiration?
these pictures:
What I Currently Look Like - New Year's Eve 2010.  Definitely not the worst I've ever been, but pretty unacceptable.  I mean, I'm 24!  Why aren't I enjoying the last time in my life my body will actively respond to diet and exercise?
What I looked like when I returned from deployment - April 2010.  Certainly an acceptable weight for my body, but I was still self-conscious in some outfits.

Goal Weight!  What I looked like prior to deployment, in Las Vegas - slender, toned, and HAPPY!

Goal Weight again!  Clearly I've been eating - not too skinny, but much more toned!

You're not alone girl! Last night some well intentioned jerk brought rice krispy treats to my night class and as I stared down the treats during the lecture I swear they grew faces and started talking to me! it was torture!! I almost texted you for moral support, but then someone ate the last one and it became a moot point...

I'm a huge fan of your diet's name. Maybe you should write a diet book or something:) Love it
