Happy Birthday to me!!!!!!! I am truly blessed with so many joys and thankful for what I have been given.
Did I reach my birthday goals??
Current weight 178 emoticon
Bought a size 10 jeans and a medium top for my birthday dinner emoticon

I am in Week 6 of the SHRED diet but taking the day off today to enjoy my birthday~ 6 pounds away from reaching my goal of 60 pounds lost so I will refocus on Wednesday and finish this last week strong.

Yesterday I pulled double workout duty and planning on doing that again today- Going to do at least 20 min of circuit this morning although I am going for 40.
Have a great day emoticon

Almost my birthday and almost done Week 5
Today I am about to hit the streets to shop
Food shopping and then picking up a birthday present for a friend's granddaughter. I am going to the party but I don't plan on staying long. I will eat before I leave and take a snack just in case. It's a kids party so there is no telling what might be there (food wise).

I want to stay on track until my birthday. I m giving myself the gist of a "no shred diet day" starting with IHOP in the morning- free pancakes emoticon

Almost done Week 5- today starts Day 5. It is also almost my birthday emoticon . I am giving myself the present of a tatoo for my birthday. When I was 200+ I always wanted a back tattoo (tramp stamp) but thought it would look like a billboard. Now that I am leaner this is my reward. I used to want a belly button ring but I am over that one emoticon

I asked the DH to design me a tattoo months ago but he forgot. Now I guess I will have to pick something out of a book if he has not come up with something by this week-end. But I am doing it!

Today at 5 pm is the start of my 4 day week-end!!! Super excited to not have to go or think about work.
Otherwise Day 5 here I come- I have even managed to stay focused on the week-ends emoticon

Weigh in this morning---178.4!
OMG finally made it to the 170's and just in time for my birthday!!!
Today is the start of Week 5 of the shred diet- tons of food today but all part of his Cleanse week. I am determined to see this plan through. I have not followed it all the time but it did help me break the plateau
My goal was to lose 60 lbs - 172lbs So close and it is kind of scary but to excited to let fear lead me today

Tomorrow is Week 5. So glad to almost be done this challenge that I subjected myself to emoticon Week 5 looks pretty easy food wise and so I am not expecting any issues. My 24/7 videos came on Saturday! I will be looking over the meal plan and schedule. Thinking maybe I will try the meal plan with the workout schedule in March. Next month I will still be working out and watching what I eat but I don't want to start any new plan because I just want to enjoy my birthday month emoticon
Tomorrow is weigh in so I am little nervous to pull the scale out of the closet. emoticon

Hoping to be under the 180 mark emoticon

Yesterday was good emoticon . I even feel better being back on the SHRED plan plus I worked out which helped reduce some anxiety I was feeling. This morning I made a peanut butter - jelly (with strawberries) smoothie. It was YUMMY. I love PB2 emoticon
I have all my food planned and tracked for today. Tonight is 30 min of exercise. I have two workouts to pick from- Xtreme Training is 30 min or Party Express w/ Hard Core Abs is 35. I am leaning towards Xtreme since I rarely do this video.

Also I have to order the red raspberry tea for next week's Cleanse week. So off to Amazon I go

Confession- I was determined to stay on the plan today BUT I went to lunch with my co-workers. We went to a Spanish restaurant that I emoticon
I did good and bad
I ordered the baked chicken platter- did not eat the skin but I ate 90% of the chicken which like 1/2 a chicken emoticon

I ate the beans but NONE of the rice emoticon

I did eat 3 pieces of plantains emoticon (fried)

I have already adjusted my calories for the rest of the day so that I am within my calorie range. So even though I did not stick to the meal plan I don't want to be over my calories for today. Tomorrow should be much easier since I am in the office most of the day. Plus I have already decided to add an extra 15-20 min to my workout tonight

Thanks for the Kudos. When I started losing I would read blogs from people who lost 50 or more pounds and how they were struggling to lose the rest. I always thought "Why are they struggling they have done so well??" But now I am one of those people. This is harder than the beginning.

I weighed in on Monday. Last week I had gained 2 lbs which meant I weighed 182- yesterday I weighed 180.4. I am glad that I lost the 2lbs but to be honest I am disappointed. I really wanted to be under 180 this week.

I went off plan last night- eating not the 2 slices of pizza that I made but rather the whole darn pie! OMG yes I did- tasted so good and I am already over it. Back on plan today and ready to workout after work.

I packed my scale away and will not get on it until next Monday. I had been weighing myself throughout the week but that needs to stop emoticon

Great job on losing so much weight!! That is absolutely awesome. I wish you the best of luck with your next goal. I have no idea what the shred diet is but I am glad it is working for you- I will have to look into it. I'm glad you are entering into the home stretch of your weight loss journey- I hope your weight maintaining journey is as successful!! :) emoticon

emoticon I am nearing the end of my weight loss journey or so I hope. I have been trying to get rid of the last 15- 20 lbs. I am not sure if I will even stop there. I started at 232 and now I am 180.6 emoticon I am really proud of my progress but really have never defned a goal weight. Last year my goal was to be under 200 by my birthday, which I did at 198. This year I would love to be in 170-ville. At least 175 emoticon

To help jump start my weight loss I started the new SHRED diet a few weeks ago. So far I lost my holiday splurge weight of 7 pounds and I am so close to 170 ville!! Tomorrow is my next weigh in and hopefully it will bring me closer to 175. My birthday is Feb 5th a little over 2 weeks so I am trying hard to reach my goal.

I created this journal in hopes to gain support from others but also to share my experience on the SHRED diet. Before creating this journal I talked about my experience in my blogs (on my SP page)
Well today is my last day of Week 3 but I plan on journaling as much as I can
