Day 5: I was doing so good...

...then I blew it.

I woke up to a lovely two pound loss,

I proceeded to make the Day 1 breakfast - egg white ranchero.

I had a nice, light chicken and salad lunch.

Yeah... everything was going so well then this happened:


YEAH, it was pretty much down hill from there....

I cant definitely say tomorrow there will NOT be a loss. :(

Day 4: lucky ducky

I feel like I dodged a bullet. Yesterday's movie outing led to quite a bit of snacking a few chips, some smarties, a fruit roll up, chocolate, a handful of trail mix....Bob would be very disapointed. I tried not to let it get out of hand, and luckily by the grace of God I did not gain. I did not lose either but I will take it none the less.

I know Ive been doing a lot of cheating so far. To say I was completely committed would be a lie. I am blaming it on my lady days. I know that excuse won't last but hey, I do feel more in control then I have in the last month and that is a step in the right direction.

I am lucky to have a partner on this journey, my brothers girlfriend, Jen. If you are reading this Jen, thanks for the positive comments and pep talk.... I am glad to have someone who feels my (hunger) pain.

Well, I'm off to bed. Tomorrow will be difficult, dinner with a friend. Yikes!

I am down 7 pounds in one day! I am not kidding.

Granted, I gained 14 pounds since the wedding so most of that must have been bloating - plus I started this diet one one of my "lady days". But either way I am pleased!

Last night I went to bed at 8 and slept all the way until 7:30 this morning. So maybe the 12 hour fast also contributed to the loss. Who knows. Lets just hope it wasn't a fluke and I put it all back on tonight when we go out to the movies- yikes!!! I ll let you know how it goes- fingers crossed!

Day 2: Im off to a good start

Im happy to report I am down 2.6 today! 

It does seem a little easier this time around, although I don't know what it is about this diet that makes me crave sugar like a crack head- specifically cake.

The salad wasn't too bad I actually made up a bit of extra chicken to get me through the mid afternoon hunger surge. 

Aaaaaaand my co-worker introduced me to Sugar Snap peas- and now I am addicted. I know it isn't really on the free veggie list but I don't care. But it is a veggie & its better for me than cake!

My cheats for today:
2 rolls of smarties
Snap peas
Cherry lifesaver
extra chicken

Day One: This seems oddly familiar

Stepping on the scale today was rough. But not as bad as I expected. Still Bad. But not AS BAD as I expected. I wasn't even hungry most of the morning - probably because I gorged myself on LL Hawaiian as a "last meal" last night. As if I hadn't had enough Hawaiian food these past two weeks...

Luckily I am getting pretty quick with the meal prep. I actually fixed both my breakfast and lunch in a half hour before work. Maybe because I have made these meals before I am familiar with how to whip them up fast. Who knows... I will admit they aren't "exact" I sometimes sub some of the vegetables for what I have in the fridge.

My only cheats were: an apple, a couple extra bites of chicken, some lifesavers, an extra spoo nfull of sugar in my coffee, a couple small pretzels and a Lara Bar. Wow, that sounds kinda bad when I list them all out like that. Oh well, its gotta be better then how I ate yesterday... maybe tomorrow will be better....

I feel like a heifer

It has been a little over a month since Jacob and I got married- and it is time to get back on the wagon. I feel disgusting. I have been eating & drinking everything in site. I am scared to death to get on the scale and I know that I am going to feel so depressed... Im just hoping that since I put the weight back on so fast I can peel it off at the same rate. So, that brings me to declare: I am starting Jumpstart to Skinny TOMORROW. PARTY IS OVER. And this time- I am without a doubt finishing. Last time I lost over ten pounds in 2 weeks, then pretty much quit. THIS TIME I vow to do even better. So... here we go again.

Day 11-14: I must confess

I know it has been awhile since I lasted posted but things are getting so crazy with the wedding getting so close. So, I am going to have to keep it short and sweet.

First, I must confess....I've been snacking.

I mean it's not like I'm completely blowing it, but I haven't been quite as good as was week one. A bite of chocolate here, an extra piece of chicken, an extra scoop of greek yogurt, almond slivers, oranges...

And now it is showing up on the scale, er, I mean not showing up. I only lost 2.5 pounds this week. I know that isnt bad, it is very good actually. But I wonder if I followed the plan like I did the first week if I would have had a little better results.

Must commit. Must stop snacking. Must exercise more. Must follow rules. Must blog daily.

It is the last week. Seven days to go.

thank goodness.
