I Want to be Bad....

.....As I mentioned one of my goals this year is to loose 60 pounds (again not a typo).  I have been working out consistantly for 3 weeks now, having missed 3 days.  I have not seen any results, so I restarted my South Beach.  Yesterday was Day 2 and I was wanting junk food SO bad.  I was literally craving waffles - so bad I could taste the syrup. My kids had some M&M's last night and it took a lot for me not to eat them (not the kids - the M&M's).  Then on Biggest Loser they showed two huge trofs of M&M's and a piece of choclate cake.  Eek!!  I made it through the night.  Onto Day 3.

Now by the sounds of the previous paragraph it probably seems like an insane diet but really I get to eat a lot of great things.  Yesterday I had eggs for breakfast, hard boiled they are easier on work days.  I had string cheese and nuts for snack.  For lunch I had chicken fajitas, I made the night before, with black beans and guacamole.  I than had a jello cup with whip cream (free) for a snack and for dinner I made a stirfry with asparagus, brussel sprouts, mushrooms and chicken.  It was SO good!  So see I get some treats I just want to eat like my former self - JUNK!!

Wish me luck.


  1. Wow, that is a mighty goal and it sounds like you are off to a great start. Just remember as you work out that you are gaining muscle which will keep you from showing a weight loss in pounds, but you should be feeling better and clothes should be loosening up a bit. Don't get too stuck to the scales for tracking your progress. Just keep moving and Good luck!

  2. I wish you tons of luck and am cheering you on!
    You can do it!
    I know you can!

    Keep up the good work!
    I know it's not easy!


  3. I really try to watch my (fake) sugar intake with a family history of diabetes & my favorite "junk food" are dried sour cherries. It's like diving into a package of sour patch kids. They're so good, and they're good for you, too! They get kind of pricey at $5 a bag (near all the dried fruit/gummies), but they're totally worth it.

  4. Oh man, those diets just don't seem to work for me. All that works is counting calories. LESS must come in. That way if I want to eat Lindt chocolate I can, that just means I get less dinner!

  5. WOW! Sounds like you are doing a great job! Well done =) I'm trying to limit my intake of junk food too, but argghhh!! too hard! =(

    I can't find your email address, by the way. If you could send it to me, that'd be great.
    Thanks! =)

  6. UGH!!! Diets are horrible to us. :) Have you tried WW? The only way I can eat healthy is if I can have some of what I crave.

    Good luck on your loss!!! XOXO
