14 Pounds Gone!

My progress has been slow, which is fine. My ultimate goal is to shed the extra pounds to be healthy and in the past two-months I have managed to get rid of fourteen-pounds. That makes me feel great about what I am doing. I chalk up part of my recent weight-loss to my new job which requires I run around for 9 hours. This has added to my weight-battle in a positive way. When I weighed in this morning I almost fell over. The scale shouted out – 181 lbs. That is the lowest weight I have been in two-years! I am so damn proud of myself. I just knew I could do this. =0)

Crash and Burn – Falling off the Low Carb Bandwagon

Falling of the Low Carb Bandwagon Hurts …

I have no excuses. However, it is interesting to see how just five-days of crazy-iness can make me feel bloated, sick, unhappy, low energy and guilty. Back to the drawing board friends ……. I guess it is time to hike up my big girl panties and do the walk of shame. ;0)

It looks like I left off on the 14th at Eggs and Granola.

First I wanted to tell you that I signed up at and received a package from them. I love packages! It had a handy-dandy little carb counter booklet, 2 other useful booklets and three meal bars. Today I am a bit excited because I am going on a hunt for the new version of the Atkins book … mind you I have no patience to sit and wait for delivery from a website. I also mentioned before that there is a $3.00 rebate coupon on the Atkins website for the book. I love deals.

So onward …..

What Bandwagon?

Lets face it – we all have our indulgences. I was informed yesterday by my inner skinny bitch voice … “You have fallen off the bandwagon.” What bandwagon? I’m not following a diet or any type of strict, ritualistic routine. Okay – I own up .. I had a nutty butty bar. Why in the hell do I feel so guilty? I loved it. It was wonderful. After I finished it – that skinny bitch voice cackled and said “You my friend have just gained 5 lbs. hahaha!” Whatever. It just so happens that I have yet to fully adhere to my NO DAMN JUNKFOOD rule. However, in my own defense I have done well for myself otherwise. That’s life – I’m not perfect-o.

In other news life is just peachy (said with a slight sarcastic tone). I managed to get all my bills paid off this month which is always a glorious stress-free moment of relaxation. That moment is usually followed by broken silence from my needy husband or demanding kids. I haven’t walked all week and that alone makes me feel like a fat girl. I will today – I promise to report back with confirmation. ;0) How are you?

I Like Food

I like food. Who doesn’t? I have found that in the past three-weeks I have been    able to control my “out of control” eating habits. This has inspired me to remain committed to my own challenge of making healthier eating choices as well as pushing myself to walk as often as possible. Although my routine remains flawed I am still confident in my ability to continue pursuing a healthier lifestyle.


March 07, 2010: 195 lbs
April 08, 2010: 186 lbs

– 9 lbs thus far.

So, it may not be an astronomical amount of weight and perhaps I could have done better but, I am damn proud of my accomplishments and motivations.  I am not food obsessed, fat obsessed, and I never count calories. I do pay attention to carb intake. I have had prior success on the Atkins Diet.  I do find that I quite often go without eating until noon. It is not that I am purposely ignoring my hunger, instead it is that I don’t feel hungry until around noon. I have been able to eat a majority of the same foods I have prior. I have cut out most sugars (cookies, candy, ect.), I limit the amount of bread I eat and always chose Rye or Multi-gran, I have pasta once a week or even once every other week. It has been rather easy to adjust to including limiting myself to one diet soda a couple times a week. Even being down nine pounds I feel better about myself because I am taking care of myself. I hope this blog serves as a progress blog and perhaps I will be able to meet others along the way.

Of course this blog wouldn’t entirely be about me if I didn’t include life’s little moments revolved around my family of five. Myself, my husband of 12 years, our three children, our dog and two cats.
