Holy Crap I’m Still Doing It!! :)

5 Jul

So, my weigh in isn’t officially until Saturday, but I am FINALLY down into the 120’s.  This is HUGE for me. My pants still are not really getting any bigger so I am wondering what the deal is. I have lost a total of 14 pounds since starting Ideal Protein on June 9th. I am feeling super dizzy though, which worries me. I REALLY hope it’s not a sign of something else I don’t want. I guess we’ll see. I am also really craving apples today. I’m not allowed any fruit. 😦 I am planning on going past my goal by a few pounds so the first day I can eat chicken parmigiana, cheesey garlic bread, and fruit. Then, I’ll be back on a raw food diet six days a week.  The seventh will be my “eat like a normal person” day because I LOVE bread. I just about lost it the other day making food for my family all day. It started with pancakes, then pizza and garlic bread, then spaghetti with cupcakes for dessert. It was like torture. I figure I only have about a month left to go and then I can eat these things in moderation. It is going to be fabulous! 😀

Finally Losing It!!

21 Jun

So I kind of feel like I am going to curse myself by posting this. BUT, since starting Ideal Protein on June 9th, I have lost 8.2 pounds!!!!! The first five days I felt like I was going to pass out for sure. The sixth day I woke up and kind of felt normal again.  It is my goal to lose one more pound by the time I weigh in on Saturday, but whatever happens happens. I am already thrilled with the results. The last time I was at this weight I was pregnant with my first child. I have a box of clothes from before I was too pregnant to fit in normal people clothes and I have given myself til my birthday to fit into them or I am donating them. Normally this wouldn’t be an issue for me, but these are my all time favorite clothes. I also have a really hard time finding pants that fit me right because I am too tall for petites and just a little too short for regular pants. Plus, I have a big butt no matter how small the rest of me is. The pants in that box all fit me PERFECTLY. I think I only have 17 more pounds to go! 😀

Ideal Protein here we go…

9 Jun

I started the Ideal Protein diet today. My mouth is pretty much healed, except it hurt when I ate raw celery today. Plus, since I had my fillings drilled out and redone, my one tooth hurts every time I eat anything that is the slightest bit cold on that side. So far the food has been ok. I hope this works for me, I certainly spent enough money on everything. I am trying to get everything crunchy eaten before Tuesday because that’s when I get my braces on. According to the diet I should be losing about three pounds a week. That would put me at my goal in about eight weeks. (YAY!)
