So, after week one, I followed the diet, improvised and switched up a few things, but I am proud to say that I am down 4.5 lbs….Yay! It was a challenge, with the kids having Dunkin Donuts and Dre bringing home stuffed animals holding boxes of chocolate on V-day, but I did it! Dre is down, too, but who cares, men can lose weight just thinking about it, lol. Anyway, on to week two…0
So while I was all down about not losing nothing previously…I got weighed this morning at work and I am down 5 pounds….(go me, go me)…..I followed the diet to the tee this time and it worked…..and now that puts me in the lead for this weight loss challenge at work….I’m so proud of myself. I stuck to it and I did it….10 more pounds to go. Love Dr.Ian’s shred only because eating healthy has really changed me..not to be all TMI but before I wasn’t “regular”..and had issues with that…but now Im regular…eating all these veggies and things..its great…..
Well I am on week 2 of the shred diet….and I am determined to follow it to the tee….I lost my 4 pounds from starting over last week. The weekends are hard for me…so I’m going to have to keep healthy stuff around, but when you have 5 snacking kids and you buying all the junk for them….its hard. Since I did join that weight loss challenge at work I have to kick it in gear so I can win this money or I’ll be out of $10…lol and I’m a sore loser. So here is to what I hope is a new beginning to my 20 pound weight loss goal.
Ok, bought the book, read the book, bought the food, and started day 1 yesterday. I followed it exactly. I timed out my meals precisely to the minute, and I ate only what was on the list. I even did my exercise. Results will be posted next week…pray for me lol
I took my fitness evaluation at work and it put the state of my health in black and white. I am overwheight but that isn’t a surprise, my clothes tell me that lol. My ability to perform physical acitivity is limited also. I have my days when I feel bad about myself but who doesn’t? I do know that I am a beautiful person with a sweet spirit who is too hard on herself sometimes. I have days when I feel extremely sexy but then I look in the mirror lmbo. Now, I just have to get my physical to match how I feel on the inside. I have to what I can when I’m able but I will do it. What I realized is that if I think too far in the future, I get discouraged, the task seems to great. I have to take it one day at a time. I was so encouraged, I exercised two days last week and it felt good. The trick is to build on it.
I’m going to do the Special K thing to jump start my weight loss, for that encouragement and boost in energy I need to keep going. I get tired of stopping but I always find it in me to start over and I’m too stubborn to stop completely..
I had to start over, the weight I lost i probably gained it back minus a pound or two. Its like in the beginning there is so much will power and determination, but somewhere along the way you fall back into old habits…..
So going forward I am doing Dr. Ian’s diet over…funny my coworker had to start over too…
I pray I can follow straight thru the entire 4 weeks
