Weightloss Journey

  1. Good morning ;)

    by , 07-15-2009 at 10:48 AM (Travelling on the frugal path to Freedom)
    Started off the day on the wrong foot. I SLEPT in! I had to answer the door for the first family in a housecoat. All that said, he hadn't knocked yet. I hate when this happens, thankfully it's usually less than once a year. And it's a good thing it's a short walk to work.

    I'm now drinking my first 16 oz of water along with my vitamins. You'd think with all our technologies, they'd find a better filler so the pills weren't so HUGE!

    I am a daily weigh-er, and I won't apologize ...

    is ROUND. I figure it's truly time to do something.

    I've gotten to the point I'm making fat jokes about myself. So I think my self esteem needs a boost.

    I've also come to realize, feeding a man with a furiously high metabolism and 4 growing kids, is really really hard to lose weight.

    I think that the only thing I can do is really, cook myself a separate meal until I hit my goal, and then try to find a balance between the family meal and what I need.

    Ok, so I got the VItamix. (tired of hearing it?) And we are all eating better. More fruit, more veggies. Treats are smoothie popsicles for the kids, or homemade frozen yogurt. This is all good. The little one won't try it, but I'm working on it.

    For myself, this involved the green smoothie. I did a 3 day smoothie fast. This is funny. How can it be a fast when you are getting so many fruits and veggies in a day? I was never hungry or weak. That went well.

    Since doing that ...
