Small victories

Leave a comment Standard

So I have some great news to share tonight. I followed the program and didn’t have any cheats today. Yaaaah me lol. I have to be totally honest though I know the reason I stayed on track was because I would have other people reading this and hopefully, making me accountable. Not only for you guys who read this (even if its only 1 person) but for me.

I signed up, payed my money and made a commitment to myself. Even though it seems like the days are ticking ever so slowly by, I know I can do this 20 week program…I’m already at week 3 so I know I’ve got this!! πŸ™‚

So I also wanted to share that the weather here is changing quickly and it got cold quick. Well I have fibromyalgia which makes your muscles and joints very painful…if anybody out there has it, then you know what I’m talking about…so anyway I wasn’t able to exercise today because of that, but I did do a lot of stretching just to move my body. I also didn’t run to the fridge to help comfort my pain…this is a huge victory for me!!! Even though all of these commercials are telling me how much better I’d feel if I had some cinnabuns lol. So on that note I’m going to go to bed, don’t want the pain to win tonight. So I’ll ttyl


P.S. I will explain optifast to you tomorrow and tell you why I choose them over other programs. πŸ™‚

A pretty bad night :(

Soo yesterday all day I had a terrible headache. My doctor told me with the optifast program you urinate a lot & my body was probably craving the sodium I was getting rid of. Well after I started this beautiful blog last night my head was killing me again…she told me to sip on chicken broth but I was to lazy to get up and walk downstairs…sad, I know. So instead I decided to eat some baked lays potato chips. I know your probably like WHY?? (So am I this morning with a tummy ache)

Well I realized yet again that 1. I’m lazy. 2 I’m an emotional eater..I was in pain and I found relief in a bag of chips. The truly sad thing is that I just went through this last week AND I had just had a great weigh in yesterday. I officially went from “obese” to “overweight”!!! Yeah me right…wrong, it just took a little pain for me to forget that and the 7 pounds I dropped in 3 weeks. Sigh…but it’s going to be okay.

I’ve decided not to be to hard on myself but to remember how I’m feeling (sick) and try my hardest not to do it again… So this morning I’ve already had my breakfast shake and a cup of oolong tea, now I’m on my way back to the kitchen to get my broth so I can get some sodium in my body the right way…I’ll let you know how it goes later.


A divas weight loss journey

Comments 4 Standard

Welcome to all the women (and hopefully men too) who are out there trying to get healthy before the new year. I would like to share my weight loss progress with all of you…so this is kind of like my personal journal where I would write all my ups and downs in, I’ve decided to share this journey with others who are going through it too.

I just started an optifast program and I’m loving it. Optifast is a meal replacement plan where you can choose ready to drink shakes (my faves), shakes you make yourself, soup, and meal replacement bars like chocolate, berry and my fav..peanut butter!! So tomorrow I will start to get into it as its almost 11 here & rest is extremely important. So hopefully your as excited about this as me…ttyl.
