10lbs for Jamaica

Friday, March 22, 2013

My best friend promised to gift me with an all expensive paid trip to Jamaica if I could lose 10lbs before June 15. My goal of course is to lose 20 or more. I have 83 days in which to do it. This is the perfect time and the perfect motivation to really get myself in gear because I would love to wear my first bikini on the beach after being successful with my weightloss finally!

I feel that for the past year I have been extremely happy with where my weight has gone. I am not at a very comfortable weight but I am not yet where I want to be. I want to be physically fit and love the body that I see in the mirror. emoticon

Today TGIF sabotaged my life. I sat down and ordered a black bean burger. It was huge of course so I only ate burger and top bun, mayo off to the side. went back later to log the food and found out that the black bean burger is 1190 calories! even with the parts that I took off... can anyone say REDICULOUS!? ugh emoticon with that kind of calorie intake I should have just ordered the pasta and whiskey cake!

    Wow! I wish a friend of mine would promise me a trip to Jamaica. :) That is going to be quite the reward when you reach your goal. I know what you mean about eating something that you think is healthy and then you log in to the nutrition tracker and find out how many calories and fat were really in it. I try to go online to a restaurants menu and look at nutrition facts and then choose the best option. Of course I don't always have time to look something up especially if it is a last minute decision. Keep working towards your goal though.

    Doesn't it suck when you think you are trying to make the right choices and then find out that restaurants seem to pull imaginary calories from outer-space to add to their foods. I had the same experience with Applebee's Tequila Lime Chicken even after I substituted steamed veggies for the rice pilaf. emoticon
    P.S. Where can I find a friend like yours? The most my friends ever offer is to have me over for dinner.

    I hate I eat something and find out later it is loaded with calories! Good luck on the 10 lbs!

    Where did you get the caloric info? Could it be incorrect? It sounds awfully high.
    You CAN lose those 10 pounds. Jamaica? YES!
