Weight Loss Progress

The weekend I decided to get serious about losing 50 pounds, I started by making healthier food choices. I had plateaued after losing 18 postpartum pounds. By changing what I ate, I lost 6 pounds over the weekend! I was also broke that weekend and had no money for Pepsi's, my evil diet nemesis. I did start drinking Pepsi's again after having the baby, but I am trying to cut back. I was going to start taking regular walks with my babies, but I injured my knee Sunday and am still favoring it a little.

I ended up gaining back two pounds, and so I waited until I had lost them again to do an update. *grins* I've decided to reward myself for every 10 pounds lost. Only 4 more to go for the first reward! I need to make a list. Josh will most likely have to get them for me, since I'm not working, but he'd better enjoy the chance to encourage me! For my first reward I'd like a decent scale. I use the one at mom's, which is not quite reliable. I need my own.

Go, babe, go! *cheers, with pompoms* Manda, manda, fight that flab! Get yourself fit and you'll look fab! YAY!!!

OK, I don't know why that cheer came out slightly British, but the love is there. lol.

Pepsi is your enemy.

High Fructose corn syrup is a tool of that devious devil George W., used to control the good people of the U.S. It makes us argumentive, short-tempered, and more likely to not ask questions when he wants to blow things up and not send enough aid to hurricane victims. It also makes us obese, diabetic, and otherwise unhealthy our whole lives so that we become slaves to the pharmaceutical companies. Really.

WARNING: the sudden absence of HFCS in the system may cause extreme liberal political leanings, specific side effects including a sudden and frequent urge to watch the Daily Show and acute nausea whenever Billy Graham newsletters arrive at your home. It is advised that if you suddenly discontinue the use of HFCS that you do not concurrently read a copy of the 9-11 report, or you may suffer an aneurysm.

I’m sorry, I’ve totally lost my point. . .

*cheers more* Loose some weight and you’ll look hot, cause no one loves you when you’re fat! WEEEE! Lol. Wow, slant rhyming! Lol.

All in good humor. :D Awesome job, seriously, and keep up the good work! :D

Re: :D
Thanks, Steph! Just what I needed!

I actually experienced those side effects even while drinking Pepsi. Here's hoping I don't go off the deep end should I be able to cut all my HFCS!

Great job!! The reward system is a good idea, too. ♥ It'll really motivate you. Keep it up!

Hey Girl!
I finally signed up for a journal... we'll see how I do :P

So do tell do tell what are you eating to loose the weight? I'm in need of some loss around the rear section, LoL.

Re: Hey Girl!
Hi, LeAnne! I've friended you.

What am I eating? Well, I mostly eat a baked potato during the day (with a little butter, salsa, cheese, & occassionally no-fat sour cream). I'll eat a decent dinner--whatever we have on hand. Last night it was chili. Been eating a lot of egg burritos and macaroni (we're broke at the moment). Sometimes I'll have a bag of popcorn for snack. And I've decreased my pepsi, although not as much as I should.

Re: Hey Girl!
I could so do that... not the pepsi part but everything else, lol. I really need to find a way to wean off of the pepsi though.

Re: Hey Girl!
You too? It's worse than crack, isn't it? When you're ready to take that step, I'm here to motivate you. I'm going to need to quit completely to meet my goals, I'm sure of it.

I was addicted to Coke, not Pepsi, but agggh, I lost 10 lbs in under 2 weeks once I stopped. Why did I stop??? Because I was literally having psycho bouts of anger everytime I drank the stuff. now granted, my adrenal glands are exhausted, so its an abnormal reaction, but still...if this is what it does to me, this is what it does to everyone else too...just to a lesser extent.

I don't drink Coke AT ALL anymore. It took me years to completely stop, because I had so many cravings for it. But I did. And now I actually shudder when I see it.

One thing that might help you wean yourself is by drinking green tea, or a ginseng product. It'll give you an energy boost without the EVIL HFCS. Yes, that stuff is truly dumbing down the masses. Thanks george ;-)
