At my center, there is only one consultant that does everything. She is NEVER on time, which is a HUGE problem for me because I go there from work and I need to get home so that I can get my homework done. Today, and every week, my appointment is at 1720 hours (5:20 PM). My consultant didn't see me until approximately 1745 hours (5:45 PM).
Last week at my appointment my consultant started a conversation about which fast food restaurant had the best French fries and then which had th
I have lost a total of 15.8 pounds in three weeks:
Week 01: 10.8
Week 02: 03.8
Week 03: 01.2
This is a marathon for me, not a sprint. I signed up for the long haul.
I did forget my food on Saturday when I went to Family Day with my son at his work. I had a choice of a hot dog or hamburger. The hot dog was huge. So much so I ate nothing else for the rest of the day.
I need to increase my water intake and my activity. Right now I am taking 20-minute walks, which is go
as I don’t eat beef but I am tempting to eat this dish. It looks delicious but can you bring a version in chicken.
Some more variety such as baked chicken wings with plain rice. Chicken rolls baked.
Chicken hot dogs with whole wheat bun.
Thanks for bringing in some more variety in breakfast such as coffee cake and blueberry oat bar. However I strongly urge you to bring back the breakfast mixed berry bar. I extremely loved it or bring in the form of a nutrition bar.
I lost another 2.6#!
I keep thinking I'm tricking the scale - except I wear the same clothes, I eat breakfast and lunch then stop eating/drinking at noon (for my 3pm weigh in), and while weight fluctuates - it doesn't fluctuate by more than 11 pounds!
Easter candy got me one day last week and then AGAIN today at the office. But I'm working from home tomorrow and getting re-focused and re-committed! I love to re-focus and re-commit. I've done it my whole
Quick-ish of recap: I blogged before about how my son got the flu and pnemonia and strep all at once! Well the next day, I found out my Grandfather died. He got the flu the same day as my little one, and passed away at home, in his sleep. We're grateful that it was gentle for him, but even when everything goes the best way one can expect (he was 90, he got to see his great-grandchildren graduate from high school, he didn't want to spend weeks dying in the hospital as he h
?Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! ?
So I wanted to share my success from this week! So after being knocked down to a 1200 calorie diet after my disappointing 0.6 lb loss last week, I am excited to tell you that I lost 4.4 lbs this week!!! I made sure I had an empty bladder before my weigh in (since last time I learned that it can add about 0.6 lbs to your weight) and I worked out twice during the week. I never felt hungry and I had a ton of energy.
Lessons learned in my first
I'm on my second week....did great week one lost 7 pounds! In my second week I've remained at the same weight for five days....UGH!
Anyone have suggestions on how to start loosing again? I'm 73 years old, am eating just like my weekly menu tells me to eat. Not cheating
on food doing just what I'm suppost to.....! Would love to hear from anyone who maybe has had the same issue.
Today is day 7 on Rapid Results for me. I made it through week one! So much to learn. I'm so thankful everybody on this site is so nice and helpful! My consultant is so knowledgable as well.
This week I learned that you must not mix and match meals on each day, but you can change the order of days. And also tricks to keep the 12 hour replenish time rule.
A little bit about me, I'm 55 years old, happily married, and step mother to 4 children total, two with my hubby. Ages 31-26-18 and n
Today was my first day back on plan after 5 years. I was able to maintain my weight loss over the past years but had a very bad year that has spun me out of control and unable to get my bearings on my own. I'm someone who has always struggled with depression and anxiety, but this past year was marked by a health crisis for my husband and the loss of my father. I have allowed myself some leeway because of the nature of these struggles, but I am very very hard on myself. In the past few months
I have a routine.
It only took like 10 days, and I have an eating routine. It's awesome.
My eating had become so disordered. I wanted to not keep soda in the house, but then every morning I would wake up scheming to sneak off to McDonald's without being obvious to my family (sometimes impatiently waiting for them to leave the house, one time WALKING b/c I didn't have access to a car!), or I would settle on just going, defensively, or I would suffer until lunch, not thin
Good Saturday everyone. Well, I had my weigh in yesterday and only lost 0.6 lbs. I'm sure last Saturday had something to do with it, but I feel it shouldn't be THAT low (please keep in mind I'm on RR). I was on the 1500 cal plan, so my consultant lowered me to 1200 in hopes that I will start to lose. I'm so angry about this! I pay >$160/week for JC and I'm getting absolutely no where. It is so disheartening, and no matter how hard I try, it is putting me into a depression. I'm going to really
Yesterday I posted about my goal to follow the plan precisely. Not aiming for perfection, but also not using "I'd better not be a perfectionist!" as an excuse to eat off plan. One week of eating precisely on plan is possible.
Then I ate my dinner at like 4pm b/c I was hungry! I figured I could has a salad with my family at a normal dinner time.
But that meal didn't turn out how I planned. We took my 4 year old to the ER where he tested positive for the flu AND strep AND
"It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces." That's what Bridget Jones says - and oh, I LOVE Bridget Jones. I was less enthused about the sequels and I haven't read the book, but I have seen that movie a million times.
But I think she's wrong.
I think success in one area tends to beget success in another area. And flailing about in one area tends to cause flailing about all over the place! I
Happy Tuesday everyone! It's been a while since I posted, but the only reason is because I kept forgetting to get on to post. Friday I went to my weigh in at JC and only lost 1.6 lbs. This would be great if I wasn't on the RR program. The consultant said I should have lost more, so we discussed my week to see where I fell short. We really could not settle on it. I keep track of my food on MyFitnessPal, so I showed her that I was sticking to the plan religiously. We settled on it just being due t
And I know there's usually a bigger loss in the first week, and I know water weight is a part of it, and I know I'll likely not see another 6 pound weight loss week again, and I know that I'll have to remind myself of that over and over this week so I don't end up disappointed with a good loss for week 2 that won't be in the stratosphere. I know.
But in the meantime - I'm on cloud 9 and I'm going to enjoy it! Six pounds down on my 82 pound journey - that mean
I fell a little behind on the forums and keeping up with my blog, because last week, I got hit with a NASTY bug... an awful sinus infection!!
It started on Wednesday night, I woke up in the middle of the night with a sore throat, and by Thursday morning I was coughing a lot. I was still functional, it was really just the sore throat at that point, so I kind of prayed that it was allergies and powered through my day.
Well, late Thursday night I woke up and could hardly fal
100% on plan yesterday - feels good! And pancakes for breakfast - who doesn't love that?
I'm really excited to weigh in tomorrow, but I've got to buckle down and have a productive work day today! It's hard though. I'm such an all-or-nothing person. I can work like a maniac, really over-working myself, for a period of time, but then I get onto something else and excited about it and I turn into a real scatterbrain about work. I just want to read the forums and fill out my menu and org
Ah - there's the option to BLOG! THAT's what I was looking for.
I wrote a couple novels over in the forum boards, but was feeling... I don't know... like what I really wanted was a BLOG!
So I'm on Day 5 and I've had a curious week.
I binged out a little on Day 2 - that breakfast bagel is not the breakfast for me. I negotiated with myself (always a harbinger of an off plan choice) for some fancy cheese spread on the bagel, which tasted pretty good - lots of salt -
Dinner and breakfast eaten and onward with day 1 (yesterday I signed up in the afternoon and had a JC dinner - doesn't exactly seem like day 1). I wish I had thought to ask for an extra dinner so my menu would go Wed-Tues. I think I might do that next week, so that I don't have an evening of one day filled out and then the morning and afternoon wait a week... I'm a little particular about my menu, and I feel like JC makes room for that. My consultant put me on Week 2 to start and asked if that w
Okay - I moved this (b/c I think I'll want to reflect on it later) from the Forum - my Day 1 entry:
Signed up today!
14 years ago I did the program with my mom during my last summer of college. I lost 10 pounds in 4 weeks and I was really surprised at what a difference 10 pounds can make! (160 down to 150)
It was a great summer b/c I wasn't working and my mom wasn't working - we just hung out, walked every day, and obsessed over food! I told her that I thoug
