Week 12 Results are in
Sunday, May 22, 2011      8 comments

I made it on 4HB for 12 weeks and am giving myself a pat on the back for sticking with the plan. My goal was to lose 20 pounds in this timeframe; but I actually lost 19.5 pounds -- close, no cigar, but not a devastating miss either. Along with... Read more
May the Curve be With You

I had a bit of an AHA moment watching The Biggest Loser last week. There are a number of women this year that have had incredible success. When they came to the ranch they had the same distorted body that I have -- the dreaded pot belly; howev... Read more

Oops! I didn't mean to be away so long, but I got caught up on preparing to go to Vegas to celebrate my daughter's 30th birthday and a lot of other events going on in my life. It was the perfect storm of everything needing to be done at the sa... Read more

What a Day
Sunday, March 27, 2011      0 comments

I had a really good day today. It started off with me weighing in at 200 lbs (-13.5lbs). Now I would have loved to see 190 something or other, but will take the 200 and be thankful. I thought, now I really know how the folks on The Biggest Lo... Read more
4HB and Me
Thursday, March 24, 2011      2 comments

After reading 4HB, I set a timeframe of 12 weeks on the plan. Skeptical isn't a strong enough word for how I felt about a diet of beans. And my initial thought was that it was going to be really restrictive -- I'd have to hunker down and just ... Read more
Week 4 Results are In - OMG!

I woke up this morning excited for the day -- Fruit Day. I'm not always excited, but for some reason, I really needed this one. It came right on time this week -- I wanted a piece of cake (Specifically Kroger's caramel frosted cake -- I bought... Read more
Changing Weigh-In to Fruit Day
Monday, March 14, 2011      3 comments

Today is weigh-in day and I'm up a half pound. I know, this is the temporary weight increase after Fruit Day, but it was still disappointing since in week's past I was up in weight from Saturday's (fruit day) weight but still down from the prev... Read more
Fruit Day Thoughts
Saturday, March 12, 2011      3 comments

Whew!!! Another Fruit (cheat) Day comes to a close. One of these days I'll have it all together...but not yet. For some reason, there's so much drama around this day. The first week I was all gung ho and ready to eat through everything in sig... Read more
Fruit Day Weigh-In Day Part Deux
Monday, March 07, 2011      4 comments

As you will see later on in this blog, my results are not that earth shattering; however, I feel great -- clothes are fitting better and I'm feeling lighter -- which has fueled my optimism. My second Fruit (Cheat) Day was pretty uneventful.... Read more
Weigh-In Day
Monday, February 28, 2011      4 comments

If you've been reading along you know that I was down 5lbs just before Fruit (Cheat) Day. Today's weigh-in (the official weigh-in) shows me down 3lbs. I had my BodPod fat analysis done right before I started the diet and that number shows 50.4... Read more
My First Fruit (Cheat) Day
Sunday, February 27, 2011      2 comments

Hmm! Saturday (Fruit Day) was not what I expected it to be on two fronts. First, psychologically, I had quite a time getting started. I felt hesitant. Our diet is pretty straight forward and then there was the 5lbs I saw on the scale this mo... Read more
It's the weekend baby...
Saturday, February 26, 2011      2 comments

It's Saturday, which is "cheat" day on the plan -- I'm going to call it "fruit day". This just sounds better psychologically; especially since technically we are not cheating if it is part of the plan. I get up late on the weekend, so I am enj... Read more
Day 4 - Changed a Few Things Around
Thursday, February 24, 2011      2 comments

I'm not going to say I'm bored already with the food, but I'm in the mood to try new things. I made pork chops tonight -- YUM. I had butter beans with them and collards. Nice combo. Butter beans aren't as good as others, but worked well wit... Read more
