Weight Loss Check In- Week 1 - Days 1 thru 7



Starting Weight: 290 according to the new scale.
Target Weight: My initial target weight for the end of week one was 282 lbs. but that was when I thought I weighed 285.
Current Weight: 287
Next Target Weight: 285 - kinda feels like I'll be 2 weeks behind.
How Many To Lose: 2lbs. Hopefully I'll lose more.
Overall Goal Weight: 175
Overall Need to Lose: 112 Good LORD!


This week I started with meal replacement shakes. My will power was not strong! I was able to do the shakes 3 full days, meaning I had one for breakfast and one for lunch with a sensible dinner. I purchased both Slimfast and Atkins and have been having the Slimfast shakes for breakfast and the Atkins shakes for lunch. I would say that those are to credit for the 2 lb weight loss because I didn't exercise...at all - just tried to move around more. This upcoming week I am going to do the meal replacements Monday -Thursday and see how many pounds I lose.


Even though the scale didn't move much I do have some other milestones to celebrate; my clothes fit a little differently
and I can cross my legs again. I was looking all cute at the concert last night. Didn't even realize that I'd effortlessly crossed them until I looked down and was like "Biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitch" In truth, these are the moments I live for more than the number on the scale.

Intermittent Fasting....Let's GO!

So I've been hearing a lot about Intermittent fasting lately and I'm officially ready to give it a try. Intermittent fasting is not a diet, but rather a dieting pattern. ... By fasting and then feasting on purpose, intermittent fasting generally means that you consume your calories during a specific window of the day, and choose not to eat food for a larger window of time. I am diabetic so I am going to do 9 hours of eating and 15 hours of fasting. I will post often on my progress. I've created 2 documents to help me plan. While most people say you can eat "whatever you want" I am going to try to be mindful of what I eat and stick to one dessert per day. I can't quit cold turkey on the processed sugars because I'm an addict!!!!

Wish me luck! Have any of you tried IF? Comment below.

If you're interested in the files I'm using, email me and I'll send them to you. No need to recreate the wheel.

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.
