Omnitrition: Phase 2 DAY?????

Unfortunately, I am failing miserably. Dieting is so much of a mental war for me that I've convinced myself that there's no point. I'm not saying I quit but I have cheated. After doing P2 faithfully for 2 weeks I was down 12-14 lbs (for some reason there was fluctuation) I stalled there the entire third week. There was no change at all. I was hungry, irritable and depressed. So I cheated. Because what's the point in doing all of that suffering for nothing? I felt so bad. I ate bread and I didn't even like it. I felt sick. Being trapped inside of my apartment due to ice and snow didn't help so I ended up eating a few Girl Scout cookies. Bread has never been a vice for me but sweets, cookies, cakes, pies, THOSE are my vices. I didn't go over board but I definitely cheated. Now I don't know what to do. I've disappointed myself and other people. Why can't I be a BIG responder? Why can't I lose 10 lbs in a week's time? Why can't I LOVE the taste of spinach? Why can't I be the right kind of loser?

Now I wonder if I should just start over? I don't want to quit. I believe in the Omnitrition brand because I KNOW people that it is working for. What is wrong with me? I don't like being fat, tired all of the time or unhealthy yet I can't seem to win this battle. I pride myself on being able to do absolutely any and everything I put my mind to so this really bothers me. Start a blog...check. Write a book...check. Take a computer apart, fix it and put it back together perfectly...check. Get a cosmetology license...check. lose weight and keep it off...................X - YOU LOSE!

I'm gong to take the weekend to research and decide what I need to do. I dislike myself a lot at this moment. I will keep you guy's posted. I'm still down 10lbs though so ...that's something I guess.



  1. Hey girl! Came across your blog while searching for Omni pics on IG....looking for inspiration/motivation. I'm on R1P2D1...and its hard. I'm only hoping as the days go on it gets easier. Seeing others results and hard work pay off is definitely helpful. I was thinking of starting a blog myself to help keep me in check So I can re-read how I felt when I did something good and also how it made me feel to cheat.
    Anyway, just wanted to let you know you got someone out here reading your blog for inspiration! 10 lbs is amazing. You already did that. Just thinking of what you can do if you stick with what you have done. Maybe each week make a little improvement over what you did the week before. Eventually, all those little improvments will add up to a BIG improvement and a lifestyle change.
    Get back in there with me! :)

BOOK REVIEW: "I Almost Forgot About You" by Terry McMillan

While I'm not a Terry McMillan fanatic, I do usually enjoy her books. This title was hard to read and confusing from the very beginning. I understand that Georgia is on a mission to find herself but the books is long and gets boring often. Plus there are way too many characters to keep up with. I will still pick up a Terry McMillan book in the future but I do not recommend this book.

BOOK REVIEW: Habit Changers by M.J. Ryan

I really enjoyed reading this book. Habit changing is one of things I've focused on in my 30s as I try to make changes in my life that will make me a better person. This book makes habit changing actually seem doable. I have learned how to reach my goals by breaking things down and doing it in a way that makes it easier and more likely for me to accomplish. I recommend this book to anyone looking to make positive changes in their life.

Here's two links to purchase the book.

Do you have any tips for effectively changing habits?

Random Thoughts: Social Media Lies

Here are three random thoughts that are loosely related: 
Lying on social media should be considered a crime. You're on here making folks feel inferior; wishing their lives were as 'exciting' as yours when what you're presenting is only part of the story and sometimes it's just the part you made up. Some one recently commented on one of my photos "who does your hair because it looks good one every photo" Now, is my hair ALWAYS done? Hell nawl...but I aint taking and posting pictures when it's not. One of my recent boyfriend is all over social media with his new girlfriend. If I think about it long enough my feelings are a little hurt because one of the main things we constantly bumped heads about was social media...him flirting with other girls, we weren't friends on FB and I can't remember him EVER mentioning me or our relationship on social media. But here's the thing, despite him publicly showing how in love he is with this girl he is …
