So, I need somewhere I can just type out what I'm thinking, doing, & able to accomplish. I very well could do this on Spark but I feel like I'd get more cheering on & less judgement with you ladies.

I am disgusted with my body. DISGUSTED. I've never really had a great self body image and I've come to the realization that I REALLY don't want to have Taryn see how bad I hate my body. It's not a great foundation for raising a confident little girl. So, while she's still a baby, I'm doing something about it. I'm going to try not to give myself all these crazy rules & over-do myself, but I do need to live healthier & get off my butt and workout. I'm tired of making excuses for myself.


I don't know what my current weight is - our scale is WAY old & doesn't seem to give correct weights - so, I'll be using the last weight given to me by my Dr. Before I had Taryn, I was 325 and I dropped down to 301. (Ugh, just typing that out makes me shudder). I plan on buying a new scale soon, so hopefully I can update with a great weightloss that I wasn't expecting.






Starting out, since I'm not breastfeeding, I'll be doing a diet that I love called Stillman's. I only plan to do this for about 2 weeks, just to get a jumpstart (to make myself feel better) and afterwards I'll be eating more healthy. Less breads & carbs, more fruits & veggies.
I'm taking myself off soda and (as much as it kills me) sweet tea. This momma is drinking water ONLY!
My exercise plan will consist of Jillian's 30 Day shred, Blast Fat Boost Metabolism & just dancing around the house.

My plan is to update/post every day and just be HONEST with myself about what I ate, what I did, etc. Like I said, no more excuses.

Sooo, without further ado.... Let's start day 1

Day 1

Breakfast: baked chicken & cheese (not the correct cheese, but I'm not going to beat myself up over it)

Worked out with Jillian - 30 day shred (all but 5 minutes - my knees kinda gave out)

Lunch: Lean ground beef & 2 eggs
Dinner: baked chicken & cottage cheese aaaaand yeh, I had a sweet tea. I'm addicted! However, I am going to tell him not to bring me home any more. At least, for awhile

Only drank 2 large McD's cups of water - would like to get to 3-4, at least.


I feel good. Made Eric some chicken stir fry, which I love, and I was surprised that I wasn't really interested in it. This no bread thing is going to get hard, I realize, but bearing this weight & self destructive hatred of my body is worse. I'll just have to re-teach myself a proper diet after this is all said & done with. Bread & pasta has always been my weakness.

All in all, I'd say I had a very good 1st day start

I had a problem with bread and pasta too. Major binge triggers. I can keep both in the house now but I had to do an almost total cut off too for a year or two with the bread.

Good for you cutting out the sugary drinks! It makes such a difference, plus your dentist will give you a kiss at your next appointment.

There are days when I've just wanted to take a loaf of bread & eat it... that's not good. I'm kind of having to do a substitute version of my Stillman's until we can get to the grocery store, but here's day 2 of no breads and I'm feeling pretty good.

Hubby went and bought me a new scale with a progress bar, so a visual of how far I've come, when weighing, may just give that extra boost of motivation

Seeing that progress start moving is a huge motivator.

My weakness is chips. DH went and got our Lottomax tickets last night and Pringles were on sale - 2 tubes for $5....so its just after 10am and I am eating pringles....needless to say, today is a bust.

You can do it! This thread helps motivate me as well

Mac & cheese is a HUGE weakness of mine. And pancakes. Ooooh man, pancakes. *laughs*

But, I am making a promise to myself & everyone around me, that this will be the last thread about weightloss that I ever make. I even made a thinspiration Pinterest board. Thinspiration

My goal is 160 - 175. If I get below that, then so be it, but I just want to be back down to my 11/12 and I'll be a happy camper

Day 2

Breakfast: Ground beef & cheese
Lunch: Lemon pepper chicken
Dinner: Chicken Stir Fry & a sweet tea

I drank 1 McD's cup & 3 16oz bottles of water.

Dinner was a conscience decision due to Taryn being fussy & Eric coming home in pain from a root canal. I did work out, so I'm not beating myself up. No failure here. It was chicken stir fry. Could've been worse.
Eric bought me a new scale that has this little progress bar. Didn't get to boast about a dramatic weightloss, but at least I hadn't gained anything, so I'll take what I can get.

I won't be working out tomorrow. I never workout with Eric home. I feel like such a nerd. Plus, I have a bunch of shopping to do tomorrow and Amanda is coming by. I'll be fairly busy as it is.

Day 3

Not so good, but not so bad either. Only drank maybe 2 bottles of water (whoops)


Day 4

Last night I bought a bunch of fruit & yogurt and have been playing with smoothies. Mmmmmm It's soooo good & so filling. I always thought those smoothie diets were a bunch of crock, but after HAVING a couple. Geez. I may just drink my food! *laughs*

Haven't worked out, but I generally don't on the weekend, so no big deal there.
All in all, the weekend really could have been better BUT it could have been a LOT worse.

You're doing great! The first 2 weeks will be hard bc your body will crave sugar and carbs (my weakness also), but so far your rocked it!

You can't do everything every day...you're doing great

Love smoothies but I'm limiting my dairy since Cameron gets gassy Very hard to find good ones without yogurt or milk.

I had nasty greasy pizza at a 6 year old's bday party today so you're up on me!

Any exercise that makes me jiggle like a fool makes me feel like a nerd in front of hubby. He's 5'8 and 130 lbs? Nothing on him moves, whereas I jiggle everywhere hahaha


Day 5

Breakfast: Made a smoothie out of milk, vanilla nonfat yogurt, pineapple, strawberries, banana and some carrots. It was yuuuummy.

Then I had the rest of my smoothie mix for a snack

Lunch: What did I have for lunch? I remember eating, but... what was it? Crap.
Oh oh! I had a bowl of Corn chex. That's not considered a bread, is it?

Dinner: Whole grain spaghetti and not even that much. I'm awfully full today.

I had 3 bottles of water and a sweet tea. **** these sweet teas.
And I worked out with a friend of mine to some Jillian So that's day 3 of 30 day shred. Woot!


I'm a little upset about my spaghetti, buuuut I did make it whole wheat & I really didn't have that much. And I worked my BUTT off to Jillian, so you know what, I'll take it!
I should probably weigh myself again... I'll try to remember to do that in the morning

I've been bad. *hangs head* Real bad.
I don't remember what I had for dinner Wednesday night. I think it was Mexican lasagna.

And Day 8 was no better. I had double chocolate muffins. 3 of them. Gah they were yummy. And no, not those Otis Spunkenguhaha massive, delicious, enough calories for a whole day muffins. The Betty Crocker add milk & bake at home ones.
And I can't even say I could counteract it with a hardcore Jillian work-out.

Day 9

And I might as well own up to the corn dogs I had for breakfast.

I AM going to workout today. Honest engine. Friend is coming over after her hubby gets off work.
And I'm going to try making a dinner that isn't of convienence. I haven't lost my momentum, just yet. And, honestly, that's pretty good for me. So, I want to see where this goes.

If the path was easy, everyone would do it. You're still doing fantastic!
