Having fun

Thursday, January 17, 2008

I'm having sooo much fun with this website!! I'm challenging myself to earn more points everyday, find mre recipes, and just learn as much as possible. I love it!!!!! I'm down to 216.2 lbs as of yesterday when I weighed in. I treated myself and bought a really nice scale and have it placed in my bedroom where hopefully my boys won't get to it and break it. I'm trying new exercise's and bought a big ball and resistance bands so I'm excited for the new me.. and the journey!

  Way to go!..I think you are on the right track...10 lbs in the first month is awesome. I don't know where abouts you live but if you have a Dollar Tree nearby they have aerobic DVD's that I have found to be fun, challenging and CHEAP.

What are your thoughts about ALLI? I have heard that there are side effects but I haven't researched it enough to know about it.

Keep up the good work.

This is my new life, being more aware of how I live, what I eat, and the example I'm showing my boy's.

My name is Debbie, I'm 30 yrs old, I have a 17 month old boy, a 5 yr old boy, a 13 yr old step son and a fantastic husband who is 34. I have been "BIG"most if my adult life, I "LOVE" food. I was about 180 when I got pregnant with my 5 yr old then after the baby I got down to 199 with the help of weight watchers. Then the second time around I got up to 250 with the last boy and after trying weight watchers again got down to 215. I could always justify eating something not great for me by saying I could just use extra points and not focusing on the calories or fats. Or say I'll be good tomorrow, and waste the rest of that day at a fast food place.
Then I heard about "ALLI" , I researched it from all angles, the pros and cons that everyone was talking about. The book, the diet plan of not more than 30% fat per meal, even the side effects. I tried it last year for about 2 months and I lost about 20 lbs. I was so excited but then I sabatoged my self again and just sliped off the wagon.. Since I know "ALLI" works and I felt great while using it.. as long as I stuck to the diet, then that is my choice to start off this year in a new direction.
Since I have been heavier I have been diagnosed with "IBS" (Irritable bowel syndrome) with diarrhea, Plantar Fasciitis (severe pain in left heel), and Migraine headaches, I'm hoping that with a huge change in lifestyle and drop in weight that these "pains" in my life will get better.
My biggest aide in losing weight will be this website, no doubt. I love to be able to log on everyday, earn points, find more exercises, log my weight, track my goals and just seeing my progress everyday has been a huge motivation builder.... throughout this journey I will update with weigh-in results, changing moments, pictures, and thoughts..
