Day 6 for emily

221.4 AGAIN--So NOT happy
I am calling Brenda today...She better give me some advice!

Elle Day 1

As of this morning I weigh 216 pounds. A year ago I was 185. Eighteen months ago I was 169! How's that for sad, emotional eating? That is me. 5'8 and 216 pounds. My 6'3 husband weighs 198. When I think of this it depresses the shit out of me. Sorry for the language but it does. I have vowed, yet again, to lose the weight by telling the world what I weigh. AND also seeking therapy for my food addiction to find where the true problem lies. I will let you know how this goes. Please check me out regularly for new pictures and updates in my progress. I am going to be a big loser!

Day 4 for emily


It's coming off slowly, but at least it's coming off. I don't feel like I did "conditioning" really well because I have been working long hours and not eating at the right intervals and have even skipped some fruits. *sigh*

Day 2 for Emily

Let me tell you a little about Brenda's diet. Brenda is the dietician. For the first four days on her diet you are doing a "conditioning". During this time you are to eat 5 fruits a day. Every day starts with 2 eggs and fruit, then a few hours later another fruit, then a few hours later a meat, veggie, then a few hours later another fruit, few hours later another fruit, a few hours later a meat, veggie, and potatoe, and finally a few hours later another fruit. After you do conditioning for four days she drops you down to 4, then 3 and 1/2 fruits. Everything else stays pretty much the same. After that it is typical diet stuff, nothing fried, only fresh chicken, steak, and 90% lean ground beef. I can have shrimp or crab but it must be real (no imitation anything). Also, no butter, ketchup, alcohol, turkey, canned fruit or veggies, pork, cheese, get the picture. The diet makes me feel great. However, it is very hard to go out to eat. Brenda claims so much food has things injected into it that it is next to impossible to eat out. The only thing that I have found 100% successful is if I make her special salad dressing and just order lettuce at the restraunt. Sad, I know. But anyway, enough of that. I am down 2 and 1/2 pounds today, making my weight a whopping 223.

Day 1 for Emily

I am also going to try this approach and see how this goes. I weigh 225.6. A year and a half ago I weighed 174. I did the same diet I am currently doing for about 6 months and had lost a lot and was down to 174. Then over time, I got out of my good eating habits and started in with the pizza and taco bell again. I am so sick of this struggle. So, here I go again. This time I want to go lower than ever before. I have not put an amount on how much I want to lose, instead I have vowed to do this diet for 10 months (the duration of the school year). I hope to weigh less than 174 at the end of this journey. Right now, I need to start with weighing less than 225.6. Ugh.
