2 weeks since my last update

It has been 2 weeks since I've updated. I didn't Log in to account for my last 2 weigh ins but I do have record of them and Honestly They are not Good! For the first time since I started my Diet on 1.1.11 Have I gained weight. Sadly I know why and I knew that not keeping up would result in gaining over 3 lbs the 1st week and over 2lbs the 2nd. until Yesterday it had been 2 weeks since I went to the gym, and eating was not as smart as they could have been.

I have been in the process of moving packing unpacking and working and I have not made time and Knew it would hurt me in the end. I have been eating things I normally eat but without my crazy workouts I can't get away with it. Well I'm back to the gym as of yesterday today would have been 2 weeks. Sorry It took me so Long to Post, and update but my weekly weigh ins has been updated and I went from 256 to 262.2, sadly I had to say HELLO to the 260's after I just recently said goodbye! Im determined to say goodbye 1 more time and this time for good!

a Little Update

   WOW!  since I started my gym schedule I have Missed 1 Day and this past Tuesday I missed it! I showed up ( because most the time i will go in and work out) I even went in , put my stuff in the locker room used the restroom and nothing No want to go and work out.  In my defense, There was some drama at home that Pissed me off and all I wanted was to get home and deal with the Bullshit.  Wednesday, I was stressed to the max from spending my morning dealing with the problem, and handling Little man!
   After getting everything done fighting him to eat and taking him out to play, he then refuses to sleep. 2 hours of fighting him Daddy finally gets home and I flip out, he has the nerve to snap about the mess in the bedroom which was In part due to Cleaning up and taking shit out to organize and pack it. Well I went off kicked them both out my room I needed some Time to just relax. I ended up passing out for an hour and a half and when I woke up I got dressed ready to hit the gym after the few errands I had to run but decided that I would just take the day to relax since i was dead tired, BUT then little man after fighting his sleep and finally falling asleep at 8 he decides he wants to be restless at about 11 so Yea No rest there either!
    Weigh in  is on Saturday and I am definitely scared! I have eaten Beyond poorly this week slacked on Sunday, no gym Tuesday or Wednesday, So Today I must Kill it at the Gym and that also means I have to kill it tomorrow Too!  Stress Levels this week are Crazy and will be till about Tuesday or Wednesday Next week! I wouldn't Blame me If i gained a pound or so, But god willing I havn't

March 1st Already?!?!

Ok So seriously Where is the time going? It feels like Just yesterday I started this whole new life style then and it definitely does not seem like its been 6 weeks since I started the Gym. Well if my calendar is correct it actually has! WOW! I was worried I would Not  make it past the first few weeks of watching my meals, But Ive made it 9 weeks. Motivation has not been an issue, Time has. Being Home with my son all day then leaving to the gym about 2 hours after the husband gets home ( while my son Naps) and getting home at about 10:30 or later is a problem. I leave when hes are napping and I get home when hes asleep.  I do Manage to make my way to the gym every day. I have missed 1 day in about 5-6 weeks, and had 1 really bad slack day where i went and just decided that I just really did not want to be there, so I just did a few weight machines, But at least I got something in. Today is My 3rd Monthly Weigh In and Stats Update. I have been better about not checking my waist every day and have actually waited it out.

Since My Last weigh in i have lost a significant amount of weight about the same as last time I think, If I keep this weight loss then I will be done with my goals in no time!

Ok Now moving on to my Stats and weigh in for the 1st of the month. My weigh in is .2lbs higher than my Saturday weigh in but that is normal it does that through out the week and always drops on saturday. Well  here goes

February 1st- 271.5 lbs     March 1st-256.2 lbs

Now for the stats I will just Insert a picture I might have messed up some where. and didnt catch it like I did earlier with my hip size i was like WOW they got bigger but i had mixed 2 numbers up from last time.

Weigh In #8

   Much to my Surprise, the scale was very kind this week. With all the Naughty Things I did, all the Delicious Bad things I ate, I though for sure the scale would Have read "FAT ASS" but instead it showed a 3.2lb Loss this past week! so YAY me!!

Last Weeks Weight: 259.2 lbs
This weeks Weight: 256.0 lbs (-3.2lbs)
Last weeks Goals:
  1. Lose 3 lbs ✓
  2. Maintain under 260lbs ✓
  3. Drink nothing BUT WATER!! X
2 out of 3 is not bad! lol  I didn't even make it past day one. usually Water isn't an issue but on weekends I go to work and well I have the urge to drink a bit of their yummy juices! I will try harder On another week because that would already be a fail this week as well lol.

Weigh In #7

     My Weigh in Post is a little Late,  but my weigh in was on time. With work, then making dinner, and heading straight to the gym on the weekends; It just seems like I never find the time to write a post!
    Well Weigh in this Past Saturday, to my surprise wasn't as bad as I would have imagined. Based on what I ate it was damn good!  My work outs remain the same 7 days a weeks, minus that one day I lost. I will be working for more Pounds this week But was glad to see the scale budge at 259.2 an exact 2lb Loss. leaving My  weight loss total at a 28.3lb loss since January 1, 2011. It seems like I might be meeting my second goal of losing 50 lbs a lot sooner than July 2011, which is great. I continue to do my Cardio and weights  alternating every other day As well as 3 dance classes a week and looking to throwing in some strength training in on Wednesdays, and a cardio kickboxing on Mondays. This week has already gotten off to a bad start but hoping the rest of my week goes better ( food wise anyways). Hope everyone has a GREAT rest of the week!

Last Weeks weight: 261.2lbs
This Weeks weight: 259.2 lbs (-2lbs)
Goal This week: 
  1. Lose 3 lbs

This scale Has been driving me crazy!

   Finally the scale is starting to Budge! I drive myself crazy all week long  when in my mind I know The scale wont show anything until about Wednesday Night or Thursday Morning. I weigh in  all day long all week long watching what I eat how much I eat and work twice as hard when the scale goes up and as Wednesday Approaches I push myself that much harder trying to get at least that 1-2 lb drop  that week. Every week no matter what I do the scale doesn't budge until Wednesday or Thursday so why  do this to myself I have no clue! In a way I like driving myself Nuts because it keeps me on check, and rethinking a lot of choices I do make worrying about that damn scale and what it will read the next time I hop on, but in other ways it can be a little discouraging, when a lot of the times I know the scale has only gone up because I just consumed food liquids or what ever so the weight that is reading will most likely not be there by the end of the week. I've thought about taking the damn thing out the bathroom at least until Wednesdays or Thursdays but I don't know, The thought of gaining and not knowing drives me crazier than reading the scale!

  I am hoping that this week I FINALLY break 260 and get into the 250's I don't care what number in the 250's as long as I can permanently say GOODBYE to the 260's. I have said good By to the 280's, 270's and Now its time to say sayonara to the 260's and be that much closer to my First Goal of losing 50lbs by July 4th, and Finally being Below My High school weight. I graduated weighing about 242lbs I started weighing about 205lbs  My goal by Jan1, 2012 is to reach the weight I was at the start of My Junior year  about 180 from there The weight just started going up. so heres to a Minimum of 2 Lbs this week. I will be tearing it up at the gym today and tomorrow to make up for that horrible Valentines day which I had no gym and Applebees! Yikes!

Weigh in # 6

About My Week:  Last week I weighed in at 268.6 Lbs the scale kept moving Up and down but the most consistent Number on Saturday morning was that! Well This week Driving myself crazy weighing myself damn near every day Several times a day, Honestly almost every damn time I went in the bathroom! Before I peed after I peed before I shower and again after! and On Tuesday the scale had budged maybe a lb Which By Wednesday Night had gone Up .5 lbs from Saturdays Weigh In! That will drive some one crazy! Especially Putting in the amount of Gym time I have been. I can say My eating has been a little Off, I mean Sunday ( Superbowl Sunday to be exact) I did have wings About 4 of them ( after the gym) and some ranch and celery, That is about it. I have avoided Steak by all costs, and  Even went shopping for Whole grain and egg whites. I have had a few splurges like a bite of a chocolate frosted and glazed donut. I did eat Spicy rolls like 3 days in a row for dinner ( but Killed it at the gym). So  when I saw the scale ( both at the Gym and at home) show a 3lb drop on Wednesday I damn near broke my face smiling!  Well With all the water  getting out of my system My Thursday night weigh in was a little under 5lbs. I was afraid to eat too Much Friday in fear of gaining some of the weight lost on Thursday so I started slow, Had a breakfast burrito, Made from egg Whites, onion, tomatoes, and some turkey wrapped in a tomato flavored Wrap. Delicious! I ate normally had some apple juice and am still excited about my weigh in this morning!

Biggest Challenge: My biggest Challenge this week Is bringing home take out and watching my husband eat it! Cooking Yummy food for the Boy and not eating anything Like pancakes, buttered toast, Chicken nuggets, clam chowder *Drool*! Yum! They had pizza this week Chinese, mcdonalds, wendys, damn near everything Id kill to have and I have resisted temptation by all costs! And I am glad I did because the scale sure shows all the effort I have put into it! This is very encouraging!

Well MY cheat day is typically on Sunday But Like last weekend I tried keeping it to a minimum like instead of killing the bags of wings I actually only had 4! So I will see what i give myself this Sunday to Tie me over Till My next cheat day!

Without further ado:

Last Weeks Weight: 268.6
This Weeks Weight: 261.2
Weight Lost:7.4 lbs.
Total Loss Since 1.1.11: 26.3lbs
First Mini Goal of 25 Lbs Reached Yay!

I am Very amazed that I Lost that much considering I have not limited my calorie intake and have been eating Pretty well ( a little too well) But the Gym time has been ALOT! so I am very glad To see the results I did. And I know some will say That it is only healthy to lose 2 lbs per week, and to them I say That goes for the people starving to lose their weight and Ive heard the muscle Mass thing, But all I can say to yall is, I cant control how much I've lost, I ate ALOT just ate right and for anything that wasnt the best choice I killed it at the gym, so Unless there is some ridiculous lecture about Working out to Much, Keep on moving! Any ways YAY me!!!

A little randomness

Tryna Keep active all week long is definitely a Challenge. I am beginning to think I have no Life. From taking care of my son all day until my Husband comes home, then Rushing out to the gym after preparing his dinner, and getting home well after 10:30, I have no time for anything else. Yesterday was a day off for my cousin whom goes to church on Wednesdays so I decided that since I'm her ride, that I would file My taxes on that day. Well Missing a gym day is Unacceptable especially a Cardio day! I made my way to the gym to do atleast 30 minutes of Cardio!  It has become part of my routine to go to the gym, in a way I like it but In another way Its a little annoying to have in the back of my mind that I NEED to go even on days I just want to take off, I have been going almost 4  weeks straights with no days off, from cardio weights and our dance classes, I am beat! I am tipping the scales at a 3lb loss this week! I know I know too soon to tell but who cares im just glad to see the damn thing moving on down lol! I think I will be reaching my first BIG goal ( short term goal to lose 50 lbs by July 4th) a little early! that would leave me at about 237lbs with only 50 more to go! the sooner I can get it off the sooner I can get to working on my next 50 lbs Lol!  Eating healthy hasnt been too hard, Tryna eat whole grain only egg whites salads fruits and staying away from steak, BUt chicken is nt my friend only seafood and steak are and Steak isn't an option well heres to maintaining the 3lb loss till saturdays weigh in! woo hoo! half way through this week!

weigh in #5

Although Friday night I did have a late night dinner like 10:30pm and I debated whether or not I should since, well I had to weigh in, in the morning. I decided that yes I would in fact have 1/4th of my salad! and the scale did ok. How I gained, .6 lbs while sleeping god only knows haha But ill take the new weight! Today ( although The scales were acting up, and not by a lb or 2 but like 7 to 8 lbs so I replaced it) I weighed in at 268.6 lbs which according to the scale from the gym means a 2.9 drop in weight since Tuesday/Wednesday, so this week I lost almost 3lbs Not bad. Still ahead of schedule. By this date I was hoping to have lost 10 lbs and have in fact lost 18.9lbs, so I am about 4 weeks ahead of where I want to be! I will reach my first BIG Goal sooner than expected, and I am so Close to my First mini goal (20 lbs) i can already taste it! I will be killing it at the gym this week to get those 2 lbs Maybe even 3 by next saturday! The cousin and I spend Almost 3 hours daily at the gym, when we get bored we switch machines and go back to the ones we left before!

Today I had a great day at work. I bought some Salmon yesterday and took 1/4 of the LARGE salad I had bought and made my salmon at work and had it with some lemon and pepper and put some lemon on my salad and YUmMy I coun't have been more satisfied! Tommorow I will probably eat shrimp with HALF the salad I still have LOL. I was so Proud that I did not give in to all the yummys at work, not to mention The husbands Friday night pizza that smelled so good in my car! And saturday nights Chincese that Also smelled like heaven on earth! well I resisted and did have a great work out.

The results surely show that Im busting my ass at the Gym. Thank god Or else i would be getting discouraged especially after this WHole disaster with the scale that makes you weigh 7 lbs less!

Broken Scale! WTF!!!

Well as Some of you may have read, I started my weight loss Journey On January 1st, weighing in at 280lbs, or so I thought. I recently weighed myself on a new scale which in fact said I was 7 lbs heavier than my usual scale was reading! I freaked out and brushed it off as a fucked up scale, but in my head i kinda thought that reading might be right. But what do I do with only 2 scales in a house? One must be wrong and 1 Must be right! So what did I do, I got the courage to weigh Myself at the gym! Which yes My start off Scale is In fact 7 lbs off! So I will be editing all my weigh ins and adding 7 lbs to each. I also had my cousin Test the scale. When she was over here she hopped on and was ecstatic that she had lost so much weight, but then on her weigh in at home she was up 5 Lbs?!?!? OMG can we say discouraging?!? well She was happy to know my scale was in fact broken and that she has not gained anything.

Im a little discouraged, since last year breaking 270 was my biggest challenge and i was glad that it went down so easily, but now Knowing that the scale is wrong Im still stuck over 270 Im hoping that will drop as soon as I weigh in this Saturday.

I am not so concerned on how much I weight But the lbs Ive been Losing! And The scale has not failed at that. No matter who gets on it, it is 7lbs off so I know the weight loss is right but the Numbers are wrong!

Sadly this means I HAD gained weight and didn't even know because the scale always said 279-281, and in reality I was tipping it at about 286-288lbs! Wow! That's definitely the heaviest Ive ever been!

Well Just felt Like Filling yall in. Just In case those of you that read my blog think WOW! 7lbs in a week gained?!?! Nope Just want to have my real weight on here, I could just easily keep using the same scale but I don't trust it anymore, even with its consistency of 7 lbs I'm worried it might be wrong on my weight loss or weight gain!

I will try and get some Progress Pictures up Monthly, I have them taken Just not Uploaded. Hope everyone has a great day, and I will try to not let this Ridiculous Set back discourage me!

One Month Already? *Monthly Stats*

   It feels like just yesterday, I was dreading starting this whole new weight loss journey. I was taking my measurements and stats to keep track of my loss, and I didn't imagine that in one month I would have made such a big difference. It is now 1 month later and I am taking my stats to compare my loss and start off the new month of dieting and working out.

   Starting off January 1, 2011 at 280, and doing my last weigh in (for January) on Saturday January 29, 2011 and weighing in at 264, showing a 16 pound drop in just 4 weeks was an amazing feeling! It is Now February 1, 2011 and time for my stats and the beginning of the month Weigh in.

  So Without further ado, I am starting out February 1, 2011 weighing in at 264 lbs. No loss and no gain since my last weigh in 3 days ago! Lets hope for a loss before my first February weigh in on Saturday!

   I had a drop in all my stats! Some were small and some didn't change beyond my first week but nonetheless a change! Here goes.

Here is a break down of My 4 weeks In January
Week 1 (1.1.11-1.8.11)-Liquid diet ( all Liquid no solids) -12lbs
Week 2 (1.8.11-1.15.11)-Portion Control (Back on solids in very small Portions) 0 lbs
Week 3 (1.15.11-1.22.11)-Fasting ( One meal a day all liquids) -1lb
Week 4 (1.22.11-1.29.11)-Portion Control and Exercise (smaller meals Lots of cardio) -3lbs

Week 5 has started and consists of fasting and exercise! I will be supplementing 2 meals with a shake, to make up for missing calories and vitamins needed.

Woohoo Im 32% of the way to my First BIG goal of Losing 50 Lbs by summer! Lets go 24More lbs! I will be posting this weeks work outs sometime Just not now cause im dead sleepy! Night yall!

Wow Almost a Month into My Journey

Tomorrow January 29th Marks 4 weeks since I started My Weight loss Journey. I cannot believe Ive gone 4 weeks, and have actually continued to Improve myself! My Gym Routine is now Longer hours, more machines, and pushing myself past my limit.

I don't see a difference in the way I look, I am guessing because I do see myself everyday. I do see a difference in the way I feel ( i have more energy), The way certain clothes Fits me, and definately in my work out routine ( it seems to be getting easier).

I am actually excited about tomorrows weigh In and even More excited for My weigh In and STATS on February First! Also for my Pictures. I haven't yet posted them, but have pictures from January first and will also take some For February 1st, and MAYBE I will post the set on March first. Just seems too soon for me to be posting Pictures, when I still feel Uncomfortable, and feel that I still look like Day 1, Although I am over 10 lbs lighter!

Be On the look Out for my Stats On FEB. 1st and My Week 4 Weigh In Tomorrow ( will most likely be up by Sunday Morning)

Hope Everyone has a Great weekend! I work and will be busting my ass at the gym after!

Weigh in #2 *Scales the Same!*

With another week under my belt, and actually adding solids in this past week, my weight stayed the same on yesterdays weigh in. Still at 268 Which  is great considering its TOM  and I am extremely bloated, I have not yet incorporated exercise into my new diet, as you may have red that starts this week, with a whole different diet plan. Lets hope for some weight loss. Made some very healthy choices this past week, and it definitely showed considering i went back to solids, no exercise, definitely more calories, and Aunt Flow is due to be in town today, so bloating is at its worst!

I have crept around reading every ones blogs, stats, and updates, as I do every day, But I am usually so tired that I don't comment and sometimes I do Depends on when I log in, and what I did that day. Hope you guys have a Great 3 day weekend.

 Yesterdays Weigh In and Stats
*I only did a quick Measure before heading out to work so Only Got Some of the stats*
Chest: N/A
Hips: N/A
Thigh: N/A
Neck: 16

Weight: 268 lbs
The Only thing that has changed on My stats so far is my Neck went down .5 inches which is great considering I have been at 17" since 02/2010 so to finally see it drop down even by .5 inches Is Great!

1 more day till Weigh In *Yikes*

Week 2 has been Horrible. With TOM on its way, and all the cravings, I get this week and how sleepy I've felt, I'm Just glad i didn't Gain back a whole bunch of weight. Although some weight gain this week was expected, seeing how I started out my first week with a liquid diet, and I was not consuming enough calories this week I have not eaten as often as I should be but I am more than sure I consumed More calories than last week. We also had some Birthday cake this week, so that added to the sweets, Weigh In isn't officially until tomorrow, but I have been checking it, so I would not go way over board. 

I am hoping as My weight loss journey continues That things will get easier. When sometimes making the same meals, I will already know how many calories are in certain foods, and working on my running an exercise.  It already seems like its a difficult journey especially with everything else going on.

Here's to hoping my weight gain for this week wasn't more than 2 lbs.

First Weigh In: 12 Pounds In one week?!?

    On January 1, 2011 My weight was 280lbs, Today January 8, 2011 My weight is at 268lbs as of this morning and as of this evening ( after consuming my liquids and Mini Meal of the day) weight was at 269. ( I need to not weigh my self more than once a week its very discouraging!)

Chest: 47.5
Arms: 15.5
Hips: 51.5
Thigh: 31.5
Neck: 16.5

Weight: 268 lbs

   Yesterday Ended My first week Of the Liquid Diet, and today started Week 2. My biggest Challenge has surprisingly been finding enough liquids with enough calories to make up for my meals, vegetable juices, Smoothie blends, different broths etc. I made it through the week with Flying colors. Days 6 and 7 I had the worst cravings ( at night ) for a Big Chipotle Burrito. I think I found the cause for my weight gain, Night time cravings. Usually if I get that craving I would go out and eat it but My activity level is very low in the evening.

   To make things a little clear: A liquid diet is extremely useful when your digestive system needs restoration. Liquids are easily digested and help in quick nutrient absorption. A liquid diet is the best way to rest and even cleanse your digestive systems since clear liquids help to drain out the toxins and waste from the body.  Although many people try out the liquid diet for losing weight, it is not at all a recommended option for weight loss. Any healthy way of losing weight has to be a perfect balance of nutrition and fitness training, and a liquid diet may fail to provide you all the essential nutrient elements. 

   With That being said, Week 1 was a way to clean out my digestive system from all of the holiday  and new years eve binge eating! Although the weight did drop significantly ( part of it having to do with my digestive system being empty), it was only to kick stat my weight loss. Now I will have a fresh clean start with a clean digestive system to let in all the healthy and nutritious food. Week 2 will consist of replacing 2 meals with Liquids and eating one well rounded meal a day. ( kind of the way Slim Fast would work)

Week 1 Liquid Fast-Complete

  So in about 30 minutes i will have completed my first week of Fasting! All liquids no solids, lots of cravings. I love the way my body feels, just by feeling empty! I will admit going to the bathroom like a pregnant woman is a little annoying, but come tomorrow morning I hope it will all be worth it. I did not have as many calories as I should have. I had the same broth the last 3 nights in a row, I will admit that by tonight I couldn't even get it down, but I did so I would not get the urge to go and search the fridge in the middle of the night! This week tested my self control and will power, so I have no excuses, when it comes to dieting and eating right. If I was able to not eat for 1 week, I can sure as hell say no to something that I don't Need to eat!

   Surprisingly I don't feel as horrible as I thought I would feel. I've been pretty active, a little irritable, but that's every month right before AF shows up in town. Doesn't feel like I haven't been eating solids except for this craving to drive to Chipotle and buy me one of those delicious 10lb burritos Yum! Well everyone hope your weekend is great check in Sunday for my Weigh in!

1 week No solids! Finally!

   When today comes to an end I will have successfully completed my first week of fasting. The 3rd day was my hardest and the 5th day i was having cravings like crazy but all the others just seemed normal. easy to do, with the exception of having to give up some of my favorite dinner items, when cooking for the husband. to sit there and watch as he eats, that had to have been my biggest challenge, and getting offered some of my favorite foods by my mom was definitely the biggest test of self control! I managed through it and today, Day 7 of my all liquid diet will go just as smoothly (god willing).

   Now as far as week 2... not sure exactly what to say to that, seems like its so long to go another week, but maybe it will pass just as quickly as this week did. I think  week two I will incorporate some solids. I am not too sure yet.  Tomorrow is my first weigh in! I'm a little nervous and excited to see how much difference 1 week has made. There has been no actual exercise for me this week, besides the constant movement at work this past weekend, and the time spent cleaning.

   One thing I do need to work on doing is consuming more calories. When I eat solids I have no problem eating them but in liquids, I have no idea what to eat. The last two days I had the broth of a soup I made. Which of course was delicious, but would have been better if I had eaten the salmon and broccoli I cooked in it.

   The fast isn't about depriving myself the foods I love, but mostly for self control! If I can get through 2 weeks, or even just this week of no solids, I KNOW that I can say no to just about anything I shouldn't be eating! It's just about wanting to. If I am eating solids and have eaten healthy all day and am offered some pie there is no reason I can't say no. I've eaten decently so there are no excuses. On a liquid diet I can pretty much have any excuse saying I am hungry because I have barely eaten and the liquids go right through me! The fact that I have been able to go through this entire week (almost) and not had to use an excuse ( even though I've felt empty) just shows that I can say no. This will make my diet and weight loss journey easier for the next 12 Months!

Have a great weekend I will be posting My stats Sometime tomorrow!

No Food, Day 4 Success!! (10 days Left)

   Today I woke up feeling better than I had the last 2 days. It could have been the OJ from last night who knows. I was good all day. I have kept up my end of the deal of all liquids ( minus the tylenol) but have not lived up to the "MORE ACTIVE" portion, started off good the first 3 days but day 4 wow I was just Stuck on this laptop like glue! Mostly reading other blogs browsing thing and talking with friends (BAD!)  I did have some Ramen Noodle for dinner. I gave the noodles to my son and what he did not eat I put in the dogs bowl, and I got stuck with it's bath water! ( The noodles bath in it, I drink it!)  and I had a glass of milk not a good combo but need to make sure i get my calcium in there.

I am hoping to finish out this week with Flying colors and move on to next week. I will say that I am starting to think of food a lot. I have this craving for the salmon I bought, and tomorrow I will fulfill that craving By making it into soup and cooking the salmon and some broccoli with the soup and again just drinking the bath water!

I am Still not consuming as much calories as I should, and I know that, so after my 2 week all liquid fast, I will have to start back up slowly when bringing in these calories, or work out like crazy to make sure this weight doesn't start coming back. Probably bring it back with All liquids and 1 meal a day.

I still don't feel Lighter, but I do feel empty! Saturday Makes one week of this so hopefully these days fly by!

Day 3 no Food!

So 3 days into My New Year Challenge and goal of losing 100lbs By New Years 2012 has gotten off to a great start. Today is day 3 of my all Liquid fasting. Although I will admit I haven't really had too many calories, which isn't too wise! I will be making sure that my liquid meals have enough calories in them to keep me going until week 2 because right now I feel Like I'm missing something. I keep wondering if I can really make it two weeks with out any solids and well, babies do it, 50 Cent did it, so I definitely can too.

The hardest part of it is cooking meals for my son and my husband and sitting there through dinner watching them eat! Luckily spaghetti's wasn't on my list of must eat for dinner tonight, but that is what I cooked. Do I feel thinner? Nope! But I do feel empty, and like I am forever running to the bathroom. Well My Next weigh in is on Saturday with Hopefully some weight loss. a 2lb minimum. I will have no work outs for these first 2 weeks, just liquid fasting with a little more activity in my daily routine.

Here we go again!

Happy New Year

   I've been down this road many times before! Having done this last year, and quitting soon after, only to realize it is now one year later is devastating. To think if I had stuck to my plan and made it I would be 100 lbs lighter. My problem doesn't come from not knowing what to do to try and lose the weight, because I have done this before. My problem comes lack of will power. Well 2011 is my year and I plan on making it the whole way!

   I will Be weighing in Weekly and Posting My weight for each weigh in, But I will only be taking My end of the Month weight as My final weight. No if ands or buts about the weight that I gained that last day or so.

Starting Stats:
Chest: 50
Arms: 16.5
Waist: 50
Hips: 54.5
Thigh: 32
Neck: 17

Weight: 280 lbs
