Week Three

5th April 2012

Here’s how I did this last week:

Woo Hoo.

I haven’t had a Diet Coke or Starbucks or any coffee or caffeine since before March 26 – 11 Days! That may not sound like a big number, but it’s huge for someone who drank a ton of both, daily.

Since quitting both, and cutting out starches and junk and things with sprinkles and other things that make you salivate, I’ve had zero heartburn, zero bloating and I want to sleep again.

Bye insomnia.

Yes, I still dream of cold Diet Cokes, and cupcakes – all the time. And yet, I haven’t indulged once – it’s a whole lot of chicken and huge salads and tons of veggies for me. Also, water is the only thing I’m drinking, except for the occasional mineral water.

I feel really good, and maybe even proud of myself and it’s been ages since I could say either.

Weight Watchers Points Plus – Week Three

24th January 2011

Week Three was le suck.

I had a bad week – It’s that hellish time of the month, I didn’t follow the plan 100% and worse, I didn’t keep track of my food the entire time.

I didn’t exercise. I blame the new treadmill, which up until a couple of days ago, was just a huge dirty box in my front hall.

I would also like to blame the fact that trying to assemble the beast was trying at best. Also, we don’t really have a home for this treadmill that is much, much bigger than I initially thought, so it’s sitting in the middle of our playroom/tv room and I hate it.

It’s a hideous monstrosity. (Yes, making excuses for my failure is my specialty -thank you for asking).

Anyway, by some miracle, I didn’t gain any weight (I didn’t lose any either) so it’s a tie I suppose.

Blah.

I did want to also talk about a couple of new shows that I’ve been watching about weight loss – HEAVY and I USED TO BE FAT.

I’m not sure if you’ve seen either show, but they are really worth checking out.

I USED TO BE FAT is on MTV and follows younger adults who are transitioning from high school to college and need to lose weight. They get a trainer, who works with them every day for approx. 3 months to try to “give them their life back.” The only thing I don’t love is that most of these kids need to lose about90-100 pounds which equals 1 pound a day, and they are led to think that it’s possible and “normal” to lose that. I think that’s crazy talk. The most recent episode involved this sad, beautiful blonde girl, who needed to lose 100 pounds in that amount of time, but was disappointed when she only lost 50 (which is amazing in my book). The great thing was that they followed up with her three months later, and she continued on her own and lost another 25 – again, amazing. I think the great thing about the follow up was the change in her mental state, from a sad girl who didn’t think she could do it, to this strong, independent women. Despite the unrealistic expectations that some of the trainers use, I think it’s a great show.

The other show is called HEAVY on A&E and I really like this show – much better than The Biggest Loser. This show follows two morbidly obese individuals, who are in a life and death situation in terms of their weight. It’s not a competition, there are no prizes – it’s sole purpose is to help two people get healthy and lose weight. I love that the two individuals can work together to support each other as well. It’s a great, inspiring show with POSITIVE, trainers that are there to do their jobs, and not become household names/personas.

If you enjoy this type of show, and find them entertaining or inspiring, I think they are definitely worth checking out.
