2 Deterimined 2 Lose the Weight this time!!

6-17-2014 Yesterday I started the 10 Day Green Smoothie program by JJ Smith. I drank a green smoothie at breakfast (about 7:30 am) and then I was STARVING by 9:30 am!! I drank another one and still found myself pretty hungry by 12 noon so I ate a few pieces of seasoned chicken with ranch dressing. I made a big pot of cabbage last night and drank another smoothie and I felt great. This morning I drank 2 green smoothies and ate two boiled eggs and I am full. I weighed myself and I was ...

I drank another one and still found myself pretty hungry by 12 noon so I ate a few pieces of seasoned chicken with ranch dressing. I made a big pot of cabbage last night and drank another smoothie and I felt great. This morning I drank 2 green smoothies and ate two boiled eggs and I am full. I weighed myself and I was 273.5 so I know I can lose at least 10 pounds by next Monday. I am also going to buy the 10 minute exercise tapes by Tony Horton. I think I can do that. Wish me LUCK!
5/12/14 I got off track with the 5 Day Miracle Diet and I am back at 270. However the day after I weighed myself below, I really wasn't 256. I was really 266 so I actually lost 8 pounds instead of 17 pounds, but 8 pounds is still great in a week. I am still proud of myself. I walked outside today for 20 minutes ALONE because I needed time to think. I feel pretty good. I just need to get negative people out of my life and ignore the ones that I can't get out of my life.

4/28/14 WOW!!! One week ago today I started the 5 Day Miracle Diet and I am down 17 pounds!! I was 274 lb.s last Monday and this morning I weighed 256 lbs. That is TRULY AMAZING. I am not sure if my scale was wrong or what, but I will take it!! I pray that this is the correct weight. I will weigh myself on Amy's scale tomorrow morning and really verify.

Yesterday I had a KODAK moment. I remembered the 5 Day Miracle Diet and decided that I would get back on that program. Today was my first day and I feel so much better already! I pray to God that I can remember this great feeling and continue to keep doing this. My blood sugar was just 118 before I even took my pills. After eating today, it was 139 so I might take my just one Metformin until tonight. I feel GREAT!!

Today I began eating Whole Foods which was suggested by the "Forks to Knives" documentary that I looked at last night. I am going to go vegetarian and not eat any meat, chicken or fish. I am also going to not eat dairy, refined sugars, bleached flour or oils. I love some of the quotes from that documentary. "Let Food Be Thy Medicine" - Hipocrates, "Animal Products & Dairy = Fat and Sick", "He that takes medicine and neglects diet, wastes the time of his doctor.", "1/4 if what you eat keeps you alive, 3/4 of what you eat keeps your doctor alive." "Eat yourself into good health and a long healthy life." Eating a plant-based diet reversed heart disease, makes your pancreas work better for lower blood sugar and decreases the risk of cancer.

I weighed 271 pounds today and my measurements today are listed below.
Neck - 15
Arm - 15
Chest - 53.5
Waist - 50.5
Stomach - 51
Hips - 51
Thigh - 30
Calf - 17.25

I will take pictures of myself (entire body and close up on my face and compare it each week or every two weeks.

My Program:
New Program effective since September 19, 2010 since joining Weight Watchers.
1. Eat within my daily points.
2 Get as many of the Healthy Guideline Power Foods during the beginning of my day to feel fuller.
3. If I am full and can't eat all of my points by the end of the day (40), do eat as much as I can.
4. Strength training every other day (Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday's work best for me) at the Corporate building or on my new Total Gym at home.
5. Do my cardio (at least 20 - 30 minutes) on the SAME DAY so that I can get it out of the way for the week.
6. Continue to drink water throughout the day.
7. Stay POSITIVE and MOTIVATED
