Weight: 209.5

Well here I am back again. I cant really change my weight or start weight because im too scared to get on the scale. Im sure Im back up to 215. I got back from my parents yesterday, work is too nuts right now for me to be able to take any sort of extended leave and my mothers sister was able to replace me when I came home. My father is doing better, hes just not independant and thats what is hard.

Im back to the grind, nothing has changed cept for the fact I started the shakes again this morning and my weekly class is now on wednesdays instead of thursdays so I go to session two today. (Have to make up for missing last week)

It just sucks that the only meal replacements I have are the vanilla ones and trust me, I would rather swallow my own vomit than drink them. Today I will be buying the chocolate. FOR SURE and they also have a Chicken Soup thats really good. So another thing I have fallen in love with is the crystal light individual little packets that you empty into your water bottle, per the program I am on they say you may count that towards your water intake daily because of it being calorie free.

It used to be a struggle to get my water in daily, but with these its great!! And wal mart has the great value version thats cheaper than crystal light!! I also grabbed a Pilates DVD, plan on seeing if that is something I will like who knows! Just got to find some exercise that I like.

I already know I have a gain im sure, havent jumped on the scale but I know its there. They will weigh me before class today.

So its back to the grind. I guess I should call this day 1 again for me.

Progress as of today: 5.5 lbs lost so far, only 59.5 lbs to go!

I'm glad your Dad is doing better! Its good that your ready to get back on track. I love Pilates! It does take a little time to get used to some of the moves but once you get the hang of it it feels great!

Good luck with your weigh in!

hollybelle on 03/21/2007:
I don't notice much taste objection to the store brand water flavor-ers either. Much better price. Good luck with the chocolate. Hope it tastes good.

Well all hell has broke loose so to speak! My father is ill and Im having to go help my mother. They live out of state and I really don't have a choice in the matter. I shot my diet to hell id say by wednesday of last week, had a huge salad, then well....that led to other things. Its just stress, stress from work, stress from family....you know one thing I am learning to expect you can set goals....but its ok if you vere off track, but remember the way back to the track. I will be out of comission for a couple weeks...the hospital is holding my spot, I will re-start with them upon my return. Cant afford to buy myself that many shakes in advance to take with me. So I will attempt the whole eating well or trying too. No matter what I know my way back to get on track. Life is going to happen to us all, and when it does I feel like you just got to roll with it. Hopefully I wont have any sort of massive gain. My mother is one who weighs 100 pounds and can eat ANYTHING. She respects my dieting efforts, but she has woooonderful eating choices at her house! LOL....maybe I should stay in a hotel. J/K

I can do this, I will get through this. Got someone hired at work, so they will get trained and I can get baack to a normal routine once im back home. At least thats what I hope and pray for.

Yall take care....keep on loosin!

Justine6Robert3 on 03/18/2007:
Your right, we can't always control these distractions. Do your best to eat sensibly and you can get back on track once your Dad is doing better. Family is always going to be the most important thing and its good that they will hold your spot for you at the hospital.

I hope your Dad's okay and he feels better soon. I'm sure your parents appreciate you being there for them and helping them out!! Sounds like you are going to be very busy, just do your best with your circumstances!! Take Care.

Whew, ok I am really struggling this am. I have had the stomach issues. Just to put it lightly. So Im in the bathroom every ten minutes. It is frustrating. This am I really would love some toast or something. In fact Im just plain out hungry.

I appreciate your comments. I KNOW this has to get easier.

Nothing changes if nothing changes!

So, thats what im telling myself. Its going to get better. Its going to get better.

Im hangin in here. Im hangin in here.

WorkingIt2 on 03/12/2007:
Are the stomach issues related to the shakes? Maybe the folks at the diet place can offer some suggestions? Hope you feel better!

Well I have had a loss in weight. Which I know is just water, but heeeey, Ill take the scale movement. I have stuck it all out to a T all weekend. I am proud of myself. I can admit there are some strong hunger pangs coming my way. But I am managing ok. I actually got a nite and day off so I was able to be with my family. Did some serious housework and took a nap even. I am taking my vanilla meal replacements back tomorrow to exchange for some chocolate, that seems to be the only one I can tolerate. The vanilla tasted like something that is just nasty. Whew! TO each their own I know. I think I will exchange for the Potatoe Soup and another box of Chocolate.

I have noticed today having thoughts of wanting to cheat. But my other side keeps saying hang in there, it will get easier. I am not eating this way forever. I even visualize eating nice healthy meals. Just like now, I would kill for a salad. It will happen. All in due time.

It will get easier, it will get easier!

I want to be proud of myself when I weigh in this week, and know that I have stayed on task.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

So this am is a "little" better. Feeling pretty rested although back at work this am but the good news is that I wont have to work any doubles today, just working until 3 then Im off until tomorrow night. So I only got in 4 meal replacements yesterday on my 1st day. But this stuff is really different. So I was hungry of coarse when I got in from work yesterday and I broke out my book and found a chocolate brownie recipie. I put two packets of the MR <--meal replacement and you then add just enough water to make it cake like batter, then get this, you microwave it!! In a mug, then you take it out a viola......a cup o chocolate brownie cake like stuff. Wasn't bad, and I tell you what it felt good having something warm to eat, and I wasnt doing a shake it was like I was having some cake or something. So it was ok. I've done that again this morning and it didnt turn out too well, so Im pretending it is warm chocolate moouse! I dont think I cooked it long enough. Oh well its all in trying this out and getting use to it.

But the wild thing is after I ate it, last night I wasn't hungry. I had a cup of coffee and another large glass of ice water and I was good to go.

Yea, Im having to get this mess down quickly that I just made cause it didn't turn out right. Yuck!

Im not waisting these things plus they have everything in them i am needing right now.

So today so far so good, I will finish choking this one down and get my cup of coffee and start my day.

Exercise has been a slow go these first couple of days, simply because of work I have had absolutley NO time. Will hopefully incorporate a routine asap.

Ok I feel nauseated! Wheeeew that one was buck nasty! I will buy a blender to make my shakes here at work. OH GOD! I just had to hold my nose and get it down! I will and can accomplish this. I will get it down to a T. Just watch me. thank you all so much for your support, yesterday was a bad day for me.

Another thing I can comment on is that so far, I havent had any real cravings. But i know this can change. And likely will.

Progress as of today: -4 lbs lost so far, only 69 lbs to go!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/10/2007:
your shakes sound great! i don't think i could stick to it, but you are doing a great job!Q

ebee on 03/10/2007:
What kind of shakes are you taking?

justgonnadoit on 03/10/2007:
The shakes are Health One, they are only available through a Hospital Medically Supervised Weight Control Program, thats what they say any way. Health One has a website though if you google it. You may find it's offered in your area or if you contact them direct you may be able to get the product, Im not really sure.

biscottibody59 on 03/10/2007:
You may want to look into hand blenders. May be just the thing for the small amount you're needing to blend. I've had two different ones, they take some getting used to. For pureeing soups they're just great!

WorkingIt2 on 03/10/2007:
Sometimes I will purchase a container of Whey Protein shake stuff..but haven't ever tried any of the medically supervised shake stuff..kudo's to you for sticking it out, I know I couldn't not eat real food but I sure do understand what you are doing...keep up the good work and I wish you the best!

Ok, I sit here with my thoughts from earlier written down, it has been my first day of the meal replacements. Now, keep in mind Im on a medically supervised diet, so I have 5 of these meal replacement shakes each day plus water. This is for the first two weeks then I start adding veggies and fruit in gradually.

Went to my first class last night which was hectic, because the whole hour was somewhat rushed, got lots of info and it was soley devoted to making these shakes in different things, using different methods, you can apparently add things to it, we tasted lots of different flavors and you can make these cookies and brownies out of the things as well, even some chips. But anyway, nothing to appealing!!! Haaaaaaa. So its a little after 4pm and Im starving have a headache that I just took 3 tylenol for and I have the shakes a bit. Bare in mind as well work has been absolutley nuts, I told my fiance just an hour ago, I almost feel as though I need to be locked up in a padded cell.

I manage a hotel so my life revolves around this place and it can get pretty crazy. But I still found it in me to start today and Im dealing with the side effects as they come. I already know the first few days or even couple of weeks will be difficult.

I just kind of managed today mixing them up (the shakes) I didnt do anything fancy cept add Ice and all of that, because I have not had time to read all of my info. Ive got lots of it, so here at work were missing an employee one that I had to fire this past week, and so were short staffed and by the time Monday rolls around I will have put in 76 hours this week alone. So I feel like I need to be in the looney farm right about now. And all I want nothing more is to eat.

But I will keep in mind that food addiction is real, and I have to take this one day at a time, I will get through this. I will achieve my goal.

Haven't gotten my water in like I would have liked to , but a nap was well needed earlier today when I was home for a couple hours before returning back to work.

I figure I have done good by at least not allowing stress (and there is alot of surrounding me) to make me eat. But I do want to eat, Im hungry to the point that I feel sick a little bit. Im going to pray that I get through these first few days. Whew. This is not going to be an easy road at first I have this feeling.

Everything is so screwed up at home, laundry all over the place, (which is not like me, I am very anal about a clean tidy place) but I just havent had the time to do anything about it.

You guys tired of hearing me complain? Sorry, gonna be alot of that until I reach the easier days which hopefully are soon to come.

Hang in there! Everything is always harder at the beginning. It will get better.

One more Time on 03/09/2007:
You should be proud of yourself. I know how hard it is. I certainly admire you. I am not doing good at all. I've been really depressed. I thought about Jenny Craig so that I would know exactly what I can eat. Food seems to be my only comfort. I shouldn't be saying all this........sorry. You are doing well and stay with it. I am in the cheering section.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/10/2007:
its always the hardest at the beginning, once you get through the beginning, the rest will be "a piece of cake," sorry! lol

leeumom on 03/10/2007:
You are already down some--keep it up. The headache is probally going thru sugar, caffene withdrawals. I to use to work in hotel management. You brought back many memorials. Even thou they were long hours, I still loved it. Kinda gets in your blood. Hang in there with the program. You can do it, and will only get better!!! You go girl.

Well its the last day of eat whatever I want. The program starts for me in the morning. I attend my first behavior modification class this afternoon at 4pm. They want you to start the meal replacements the following morning after your 1st of 24 weekly classes. (I HATE MY JOB SOMETIMES UGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGH)

Anyway, had to get that off my chest.


Today is a little better Ive been at work for almost 10 hours and got 4 more to go before I can leave. I can do this. I cant wait for the ad to run and I get someone hired.

So since its my last day of eating what I choose......I am trying to think of what I want for dinner? It needs to be a favorite of mine, but I just cant figure out what. What would you all eat if you could have anything? I need some ideas! Just made myself a fat belgian waffle here for breakfast! Isnt that terrible?

Im gonna have major withdraws im quite sure these next few weeks are going to get interesting as I start this program. We shall see!

Hope everyone has a wonderful day and take care of you! BTW, Im gonna look into the Pilates...thanks for yalls advice!

biscottibody59 on 03/08/2007:
A ton of sushi/sashimi and everything else the local sushi place has.

Or french fries from Steak n Shake--not like everyone else's fries!

Or do you have a frozen custard place like Culver's? If I had access to one I'd have been eating a ton of frozen custard like a death row inmate at their last meal:-)

Eventually (after you get through your program) maybe whatever treat meal you have tonight can be incorporated into your life somehow.

Have a good one!

borntocry on 03/08/2007:
Oh wow! What would I have for dinner if I could have anything?! I'm going to answer this just because I have some time on my hands and love talking/writing/thinking about food:

1) Chili spaghetti with crackers at Skyline - my favourite restaurant!

2) A stack of pancakes, scrambled eggs, home fries, and buttered toast!

3) Macaroni and cheese with a sweet potato casserole and cornbread!

4) A huge falafel sandwich with fried eggplant and all the fixings!

5) An entire pizza!

6) A huge slab of quiche!

7) French toast!

8) A huge bowl of granola - the kind with lots of nuts!

9) A whole pint of frozen yogurt!

10) An entire loaf of bread, with cheese, peanut butter, or whatever else I feel like!!

Okay, I see now that my food cravings have more to do with quantity than specific choices... so probably not much help!

Justine6Robert3 on 03/08/2007:
I hope your 1st day with your new program goes well!! I would give you some ideas on the food but I'm afraid it will make me hungry!! I'm getting ready to go to bed and this is my weakest time for the munchie attacks so I'm going to try not to think about my favourite food:) I hope whatever you chose was enjoyable though!!

Yikes, did you just work a 14 hr day, you must be tired!! My husband works those kind of hours all of the time, I know he gets wiped out. I hope you get some sleep, sounds like your going to need it!

harleygirl79 on 03/09/2007:
What part of Arkansas? We have family in Harrison, and Delight. I love it there, and even trying to buy some property near Delight. I heard Extreme Makeover Home Edition was just there 2 weeks ago. They were 10 miles from my cousins house. She got to see Ty. Thanks for your comments. Keep up your good work.
