The Simple Diet - Day #6

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

I am super excited! If you all have read my previous blogs, you know that anything below 307.5 has eluded me since the beginning of the year. I made it a personal goal to get below 307.5 and could not reach it for whatever mental reason. So, this morning I received a pleasant surprise. When I stepped on the scale and it said, "Your weight is 3-oh-7.3 lbs.", I darn near jumped out of my skin! Oh-eM-Gee! I only have 7.4 lbs to go to reach my 299.9 mark. I'm only 37.3 lbs away from my June 1 goal. I suppose I will take all of this excited energy and use it on a Leslie Sansone 5 mile walk. Yep, it is 2:13 AM ET, but I know that if I don't do it now, I won't do it. That's another thing I hope to work on during this journey. I hope to get myself to a point where I stop procrastinating with my workouts. I will get my workout clothes on then sit down with my laptop as I have just done, and will not move from the spot I am in for hours. So, with that being said, I hope you all have a great day and I am about to get my Leslie Sansone on.

Love, Peace, & Motivation,

The Simple Diet - Day #4

Monday, March 12, 2012

Sunday, began my 4th day doing The Simple Diet. For those you who may not know, The Simple Diet is.....SIMPLE. It consists of drinking 3 meal replacement shakes (Slim Fast, Special K, etc.), eating 2 pre-packaged meals (Healthy Choice, Smart Ones, Lean Cuisine, etc.), 5-6 servings of fruits and veggies (aka fruggies), and drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day. See, simple. That's Phase 1. I started this diet on Thursday at 315.6 lbs. I weighed around 8 P.M. on Sunday night and I was at 310.1. So, for three days on the diet I lost 5.5 lbs. Not too bad. I plan on doing it for at least a month. Wonder what my results will be by then... So far, so good. I am not hungry, not craving anything, or any of the usual pitfalls I encounter. I haven't done any real exercising yet because of my foot. I think I will try to start an exercise program around Wednesday as long as my foot doesn't give me any problems. I walked a bit on Saturday morning but other than that, nothing. If you're doing The Simple Diet, let me know how far along you are and what your results are. I am open to any tips.

Love, Peace, and Motivation,

  This is good info as I enjoy the Healthy Choice meals already. It's interesting about the three shakes a day as I thought they were meal replacements. I like the fruit and veggie idea as they consist of a small calorie count and so filling. I'm going to try it, thanx! emoticon emoticon We/ emoticon

2012 Weight Loss Goals

Sunday, March 11, 2012

I recently updated my page and these are the goals I have listed for myself:

* Be sexy-ER by summer. lol

* Get below 220 lbs.

* Be at 270 by June 1, 2012. (-42.1 lbs)

* Be 250 by August 17, 2012 (my birthday) (-20.0 lbs)

* Be 220 or below by December 31, 2012. (-30.0+ lbs)

* Total weight loss goal for the year - 92.1 lbs

I have been wanting to get down to 220 lbs since forever. That was my goal weight when I first started SparkPeople. I don't rightfully know where the number came from but that's what popped into my head. Maybe it came from me not wanting to be a stick figure. At my height, 220 is not a bad weight. Heck, compared to 338.8, 220 is an AWESOME weight! I set my goals the way I did because I know the weight will come off faster in the beginning. I may not make the August goal of 250 but I'm going to definitely shoot for it. If not, I have 4 months to drop over 30 lbs and make up the difference. At 2-3 lbs a week I should be at 32-48 lbs in 4 months so that is definitely doable. I'm sick of setting goals and not finishing them. I'm starting a workout regime on Monday. I had a recent accident where I cut my foot and had to get stitches so I am making sure it is good and healed before I start anything strenuous. At any rate, I am focused and ready to drop these lbs.

    I wish you the very best of luck with your goals. Just stay at it. I feel the way you do, i've set goals and didn't attain, trying to do the same thing - wipe the slate clean and start over.

The "ME" I See

Sunday, February 19, 2012

I wake up each day and look in the mirror and staring back at me is a beautiful person; full of life, joy, and for some reason she is smaller than my actual size. How is that possible? She is the "ME" I see whenever I look at myself. For some reason, I look at myself and see a medium-sized girl. Go figure! I want to make that image a reality. I want to look in the mirror and see the real me. I've been doing some sort of diet or lifestyle change since the end of 2009. I got down to 286 in '10 and then who knows what happened. I've been up and down with my weight since then. I do well for a bit then fall off the wagon. I've been having this same issue the entire time. I know that I need to lose the weight, want to lose, the weight, but have no idea how to stay motivated and on track. I think I plan too much. I discourage myself before I ever start. I'm one of those people who has to "Just Do It" and not make any extensive plans and goals. Goals discourage me. I have a huge mental block when it comes to trying to reach a certain number. I said I wanted to lose 5 lbs and I lost 4.9... WTW!?!?!? Could not lose that 5 lbs to save my life. So, now I suppose I will take a different approach and just do it. Whatever weight I end up at is where I end up at as long as it is smaller than my current size. The "ME" I see is who I want to be.

Randomness: I swear I have ADHD. Nope, wait, ADD. I'm not hyper at all. My mind flows a mile a minute. You guys should see me trying to focus enough to write a blog. It gets crazy. I have to write and re-write so much because i am all over the place with my writing; its a shame. Anywho, I digress...

I need suggestions, guys. What have you done to get your mind in gear? What have you done to stay motivated? Leave me comments. Let me know. I need all the help I can get at this point.

Until next time; love, peace, and motivation!!!

    Thanks to everyone who commented. I have recently decided to break my cycle and actually make some attainable goals (long and short term).

Lynn - I contacted you on Yahoo.

Kanoe - Thank you for that suggestion. I will give it a try. Carbs are my mortal enemy. lol

IAMCHANGE - Thanks for your support. We all have our struggles and for some, weight is the least of them. You are in my prayers and thoughts!I am here for you as well.

    I was 100 pounds overweight. I had yo-yoed all of my life. I finally went on the South Beach diet and started eating low carb. That has stabilized me. Try eating low carb and not eating sugar.

Good luck to you. You can do it. emoticon
