Cookie Shake

I made this delicious cookie shake tonight with my new personal blender. Earlier I made soft serve! It was like a Wendys frosty with mint. MMM MMM MMM!

I love that I get to eat such delicious food!


I'm officially 11.2 pounds lighter.

And craving a sandwich.

I'd rather have the pounds keep falling off than eat a sandwich.

Hopefully it continues to drop quickly!! :D

I'm sorry I haven't really posted much.

I've been a little upset on the weight-loss this week. I mean, I knew it'd slow down after week one, but I didn't think it'd completely stop! Especially when I've stuck strictly to the damn diet.

I'm annoyed, and find myself flipping my scale off each morning. I am working my butt off on this diet and feel like I am not getting anything in return. Frustration is brewing!!

Anyway- I am now going to talk about the title of this post.

NSV. It stands for 'Non Scale Victory'. Basically another way of rewarding yourself, besides what the scale says. It is supposed to help when your scale isn't being so kind.

My NSV for this week is my inches lost. I measured myself before I started on May 30th, and then quit the diet 4 days later because of sickness. I ended up gaining about 5 pounds before I started, so I am sure measurements went up before I started this last time. However, I never measured myself (now I wish I had, I'd have more lost!)

Anyway, I measured myself today in hopes of feeling better about that f$&#%*ng liar scale! And I have lost 9.5 inches all over my body!!!! 4.75 inches have been from my stomach alone!!

I am super happy for these results! And a NSV each week is what I need.

I still have 4 more days before my official weigh in, so hopefully the scale moves downward.

9.5 inches bitches!!! :D

Starrrrrrrrving today

Today is the first time in about 4-5 days where I've been starving ALL DAY LONG.

I'm keeping strong though. I am continuing eating my 6 meals on schedule. Thank goodness I don't have cravings or strong urges to eat things that aren't on plan.

I have my goal in mind and I am not going to let anything stand in my way.

I have will power and 2012 has been such a growing year for me. I have come really, really far in every aspect of my life.

Nine pounds lighter

I am so very proud of myself.  I have officially lost 9lbs on this diet that I don't plan on EVER gaining back.

Today is the start of day 2, week 2. 

I am happy with my progress, and I am even happier that I am doing so well!  I haven't cheated once!

I did have a dream last night that it was Halloween and I went Trick-O-Treating at McDonalds and got some free fries.  After eating one handful I quickly threw them away and was so angry at myself for completely forgetting that I wasn't supposed to eat those.

Haha-  The mind is a funny thing.

Still going strong!

Today is day 7.

Tomorrow is my official weigh in date to see exactly how much I have lost in a week.

I am so very proud of myself for pushing through this weekend.  I had a few tempting moments, but I didn't give in. :D

Last night I made mashed "potatoes" with cauliflower....and it was so delicious!!  I will most definately be doing those again soon!

Early Milestone

So, my official weigh in day isn't until Tuesday, but I am addicted with weighing myself every morning and afternoon.

Imagine my surprise today when I stepped on the scale and was down 6.4 pounds!! It is the motivation I need to keep me going this weekend.

I am so happy this morning! :D

Stuffed Zucchini

For my L&G tonight I made these beauts. They were so amazingly delicious! Bailee scarfed them down and wanted more! I'm definitely sure we will be making these much more often.

Mmmm mmmm mmmmmmmm!

My Quote and Motto for this diet.

Just gotta push through it...

Oh my gosh.

The weekend is going to be the hardest part. Being around Bailee and Mile while they can eat what they want is really rough. But, I am determined to make it. I feel that if I can get through this entire weekend then I can make it through anything.

I just need to keep my eye on the prize.

Mmmm Diet Brownie

I love these little stinkers. They are so delicious!

Hard to believe they are GOOD for you. :)

This is not your average Diet

Welcome to my new side blog.

I started a new diet recently and want to track my progress on here.

Now, unfortunately, I am way too ashamed to share my beginning weight at this time. But, I plan to share my success, and eventually I will reveal my start weight. (once I feel more comfortable)

I was introduced to Take Shape For Life back about 5 months ago (if only I'd had started then!). I didn't have the money to start up with this diet at the time, so I sat aside and continued with my own efforts.

Now, I had gained about 25lbs in a matter of weeks shortly after our Disney Vacation in February. That weight was 99% water. My legs, arms, face, practically my whole body had swollen. I caught a bad cold on our way to Cali and it just consumed me in water weight. However, it was not that easy to lose. Thankfully I lost that 25 lbs before I started TSFL.

My first time starting this diet was on May 7th. I did awesomely and lost 8 lbs within the first week. But then I got sick on Mother's Day. I quit the diet after 2 1/2 days of constant sickness.

I was able to maintain about 5 of those 8lbs lost and started up again on May 30th. Two days later, I ended up sick with a horrible flu.

By this time I was starting to wonder if this was a coincidence. I had come down with the 'barfs' 2 times in a matter of just a couple weeks! I was scared to start again, fearing I was allergic to some ingredient in the medifast meals.

On Tuesday, June 19, I decided to give it another honest shot. I may only be at 3 days...but I am feeling a lot better than I was the last 2 times I tried. So, hopefully it was all a fluke and I can continue on this journey.

Stay tuned....
