It’s not always easy for me to make heart healthy and delicious meals, especially in the winter when all I want to do is carb load and each chocolate. However, the warmer months are coming and I want to be in better shape than I am now. I still want to lose another 50 pounds. Ideally, I’d like to before summer starts, but unless I do something drastic it’s not
What do you do when you gain the weight back? I haven’t gained any weight back this time, but every time I have lost weight, I have gained it back. Gaining weight back after successfully losing weight is inevitable unless you remain vigilant. Our bodies fight us to recoup the fat that was lost through dieting. If you’ve never needed to lose weight, you can’t imagine this to be true.
I could have kept writing the same shit about how much the bariatric surgery pre-op diet sucks, but I was too busy getting all my freelance work done for the month so I would be able to relax after surgery. The bariatric surgery pre op liquid diet days 2-14 are the same as day 1. The only difference is by day 3 the headache has gone away as well as
It’s still January and many of us are still trying to keep to unrealistic New Year’s resolutions. In my now 50 years of life on this planet I have learned that making small changes is the only way to make big changes. That making New Year’s resolutions is more of an exercise in futility than it is an exercise in improving ones life. Don’t get me wrong, I had the
I’m on Day 9 of the Whole30 and right now I’d give my left arm for a piece of chocolate. I’m a righty so I think I can get through the temptation but I want some chocolate something fierce. I’m pretty sure this hormonal. I don’t want just any chocolate but I want, no, I need chocolate covered pretzels or peanut M&Ms. Washing it down with a glass of two
I’m on Day 4 of the Whole30 diet program. Still feeling really good and so far don’t miss the sugar that I’ve removed from my life. I do feel better. I’m not as achy but that could be partially due to the warmer weather we’ve been having now that spring is here. As I document my experience with the Whole30 I wonder how others fare? I have poked around in
I’ve been doing the Whole30 for three days now. I’m still super excited and I have a bit more energy. I’ve been drinking nothing but water and my morning coffee – no Diet Coke. I don’t know if it’s because I’m not pouring 4 cans of that poison a day into my body or what but it seems as if I can go longer without feeling the urge to pee.
In just a few more days Easter will be here and gone and I can throw out all of the chocolate and marshmallow Peeps that have found their way into my home. Losing weight is hard enough, I don’t know why I buy this crap. I like to believe I get it for the kids but they don’t really eat much of it. I don’t even eat much of it.
Day 4 Weight 226 I grew up watching The Donny and Marie Show. I admire Marie Osmond for being a talented artist, smart businesswoman and especially as a dedicated mother and wife. I have no ill will towards her at all but her weight loss (while impressive) is not motivating to me. I’ve been watching for years as she’s waltzed across a sound stage telling me how she became 50
