Elles' a beotch! ----

Yes, that's right.  I said it.  I got a brain vibe from Emily saying the same thing too. I'm sure of it.  Yeah, to think of it I saw a sign in a piece of toast too.  It confirms that I must say this to Elles.............

You bitch. 

LOL  Seriously, WAY TO GO SISTA! 


Day 3 Addendum!!!

I weighed early this morning (like 3:30 AM, early) and that's the weight I reported on the first Day 3 post...I just weighed again after taking care of some biznes...(I know that's spelled wrong)...and I'm actually down 2.8 from yesterday...making my grand total in 3 days...7.6 lbs!!!!!!!!  I'm so effing stoked I could sh*t!!!!! : )

Day 3 Complete!

I went down another 1.4 lbs from yesterday!  I'm at 6.2 total.  Totally stoked.  I feel fantastic...again.  Today is my last day with the kids for 2 months, my sisters party is tomorrow, I'm going dancing Sunday night and then again on Thursday night....I can't wait!!!!  Super stoked at everything right now and happy to be alive, although I have my doubts that a tornado could have lifted me off the ground in the first place...: )

I'm marching on

Well, I am down 2.6 pounds. Not as good as Elle...and I didn't get Taco Bell. But that's ok. Losing weight is losing weight.
Jonesie, in regard to the drops...I really don't know much about it. They are some chemical that you take 5 or so drops a certain number of times a day and it takes away all of your hunger. Then you are only allowed 500 calories to spread out over the remainder of the day and must include protein, veggie, and fruit I think. If I find out more about it I'll let you all know. I know you only stay on the diet for a short amount of time (3 weeks) then you go off for a week then back on. Something like that. I'm sorry that you are sore. I hope you feel better!

Brenda's Diet Just for Jonesie

Hey Jonesie,
As per your request Brenda's diet is as follows:

All the vegetables, eggs and lean meat you want.  No need to measure or stick with a certain # of servings or portions.

5-7 Fruits the first 4 days except (bananas, grapes, pears and pineapple) these are used for plateau breakers,
but truth be told I have eaten them in the past and it does very little, if anything, to hinder weight loss. 

After the 4 days is up you go to 4 fruits for 3 days and then 3.5 for the duration of the diet. 

1 8oz potato a day.  Up to 4 melba toast. And all the lowfat or nonfat cottage cheese you want.

2 tsp of corn, sunflower or safflower oil a day. (helps ya poop!)

And a butt ton of water!!! Preferably lemon water because lemon is a natural diuretic and helps get rid
of water weight.

That's all there is to it.  Sucks ass but works very well!!!

Day 2, Yesssss!!!!!

Day 2 went down a little more stressful than it should have, but it can always be worse.  I had 3 hrs of sleep the night before so that was part of it.  Usually when I get very little sleep I don't diet well.  Too tired to cook, or care, that type of thing.  But I did well all day (actually didn't eat enough, but didn't cheat either.) until we ended up in the basement at 3:45 because of tornadoes.  We have food (peanut butter, chips, crackers, nuts etc.) stashed in a survival kit in case something happens so I got all the snacks out for the kids since they hadn't had one yet.  I managed to only eat 3 PB crackers but it is so not on Brenda's diet.  We were in the basement off and on for the next 3 hrs.  When Aiden finally got home he had to work (2nd job-that he can do from home when necessary) and I had to run and get Frederick's RX filled.  I picked up Taco Bell for all of us since it was so late.  I ate a bean burrito, but wanted everything on the menu.  That was all I had all day besides fruit and PB crackers and not enough water.  I still went down 1.2 lbs though so I'm pretty stoked.  I had myself all geared up excepting the fact that I would probably gain due to lack of water, more than anything, but I dropped.  4.8 lbs in two days.  I'll take it.  Too bad it's the same 4.8 that I have been yo-yo-ing for the last few months.  Oh well, I'm not dwelling....I feel good, I'm going with that. 

Therapy.... YEA!????

I used a ! because it was nice to have someone focus just on me for once.  I use the ????? because I am sore today.  He said I would be but man I did not realize it would hit me like a ton of bricks.  I crashed and I mean crashed at 4pm yesterday and with very little exception (I did get up for 1 hour and got a massive amount of work done!) I stayed crashed out all night.


Hang in there ladies! Come on! Check in! Let me know how you are doing.  And remind me. The Brenda diet is nothing but fruit, water and veggies?  Is that right?  I can't remember.

Also what is the drops diet?

Jonesie out~

Day 1

Ok, well I went down one pound. Not 3, but at least it's something. I have hung in there so far today. Still need more water and fruit but doing well overall. Hoping to drop the weight quickly...but I know that's not always the best. Thinking about the drops diet...our assistant principal lost 20 pounds in 3 weeks. Got the drops from his chiropractor...I am really considering it...


Today starts day one of therapy.  The Dr. ordered it because of the car wreck. My neck hurts, my back and shoulders hurt and I am just in an all around bitchy mood.

Hopefully a few stretches and pops and I will be on a better path here in about 2 hours.  (Appt is in an hour). 

Good job for starting on your Brenda diet.  I hear she kicks ass!  Be careful and drink lots of water!  There's an app that will remind you if you need help remembering it!~


Brenda Diet

Yesterday was day 1 of Brenda diet to give us a good kick start.  This morning I weighed myself and I am down 3.6 lbs since yesterday! I'm pretty happy, although today is a hard day to get through because the headache that comes with Day 2 is a killer.  Oh well, whatever works.  Keep ya posted.

Refreshed and Ready

Well, I woke up this morning and weighed. ugh. 217. So, there it is. Yuck. Anywho...I had my eggs and fruit, fruit, fruit. I didn't cheat...not even once. So we'll see what the scale says tomorrow. I'll keep ya'll posted!

Oh, it's on!!!!

Well, I started out well yesterday...then my family showed up with Subway (still not terrible) but I didn't go down this morning.  So, I am starting fresh today and making my intentions known to everyone, including the mail lady in case she happens to deliver something edible, that I am not partaking in anything fun until I get some of this weight off.  So, I am getting ready to eat scrambled eggs (made w/o milk) and a cup of unsweetened applesauce.  And about 400 oz of lemon water.  I'll let you know how later goes.

Bring it on!

Ok. so tonight i'm going to pasta house...but begins. I am ready for the diet. the tough diet. I am wanting to drop that 20 SOOO bad. I just want to be under 200 when I go to the OB! Weird, right? But last time I went, he lectured me on losing weight. UGH! SO. I really want to be under 200 so maybe I can avoid the lecture. Here's to fruit, healthy food, and working out...(god give me the strength...)

1 Month

Emily and I are in competition again, with ourselves.  The friendly competition is good, but our goal is to help each other, for 1 month, do the best we can.  We have put a 20lb goal on it to push ourselves, but 15 is the # we are truly okay with for 1 month.  We've done it before, we can do it again!  We will update as we go, as usual.
