Going on a Diet - Take 2

My diet plan kinda fell apart over the last few weeks (hanging my head in shame). I have some good excuses, I swear.

First problem, and this is a BIG problem, our fridge broke! I had to throw away a roast, chicken breast, you name it. If it was stored in the fridge, I had to throw it out. It took us a few days to get a new fridge and in those days I was eating random stuff from the pantry like popcorn, canned soup, you know all that non diet food.

Second problem. Ok so this shouldn't have been a problem really but it put me off course. I "thought" I was pregnant. I am not!

Third problem. All THREE of my kids have been sick. First Michael was sick. The poor little guy had a huge fever for more than 3 days. He was better for a couple days and then *BAM* all three of the kids came down with fevers, runny noses, and coughs. I literally had to hold Michael for 20 out of 24 hours. I was too exhausted to think about dieting.

Fourth problem. I got sick. Really sick. Fever, chills, muscle pain, migraines, runny nose, cough. I'm actually still sick. I haven't been over eating while sick, but I have been drinking a lot of juice and forcing myself to eat stuff like cereal because I'm still breastfeeding.

I only have about 2 months to look great in that brides maid dress so as soon as I kick this flu, the diet must resume!!!!

Wish me luck!

Ok so it's almost been a week since I started losing weight. First, I just want to say that dieting is so NOT fun!!! However, I know it's the key to loosing weight, so it'll have to go on and on for a while. I was totally off carbs for the first few days and just eating protein and a lot (seriously A LOT) of veggies. I was doing great until church on Sunday. I was sitting there feeling hungry and then shaky. Usually at this point, had I been at home, I'd grab some celery or a red pepper and much on that, but since I was at church, that wasn't an option. To avoid fainting in the middle of singing a hymn, I did something totally against the rules. Yes, I'm ashamed to say I ate not one but TWO Starburst candies. It was bad, I know, but at least I didn't feel like I was going to faint anymore.

Ok so onto my progress. I've lost.... drum roll please...........

5.5 pounds so far!!

Now I have 10-15 to go to feel "not like a cow", but ideally I'd like to loose 20-25 more pounds.

I'll keep you posted.

Feeling So.....

FAT! I know I've had 3 kids, I know. Doesn't change the fact that I feel like a cow right now. My husband says I'm beautiful (of course he does) but I need to change things ASAP. Especially since I'm going to be a brides maid in May.

Starting today, like RIGHT NOW, I'm making some drastic changes. To quote Jafar from Aladdin "desperate times call for desperate measures!"

I'm going to start with a 3 day detox to jump start things and clear out my system, then it's calorie counting and The 30 Day Shred - Level 3!

I'll report back in a week. Until then, check out some of the dresses we're thinking of...
