Week 3: Weighing In

Today is day 16 of what is really going to be a 24 day cleanse, rather than 30.  I did the math wrong.  We're going to Auburn, AL in 2 weeks to watch the Bulldawgs have some tiger for dinner...we hope (other than Sunflower, who's our token AU fan).  Anyway, you can't have a weekend full of tailgating if none of us are drinking!!!  It could be dangerous.  Stay tuned for updates on how that goes.  I sure hope Lollipop and Tabby can handle us 3 light weights on their own.

I'm really getting the hang of this eating plan.  Every day is easier and easier.  Of course my night cravings are still kicking in and driving me CRAZY!!!  As of Sunday evening, I'm down 8.8 lbs.   I'm wearing jeans that wouldn't fit over my fat ass 2 weeks ago.  I'm feeling GREAT!!!  

I've had tons of people asking for information about this diet.  I think the most important aspect is the DON'T list.  It's much easier to pick out what you can have once you've established what you can't have.  I'll share that with you now....

I'll give you all a couple of days to absorb this list before I bombard you with the approved list.  One good rule of thumb is if it's processed, it's not approved.  For quick easy meal ideas, follow me on Facebook.

  4. Hi!! I'm the "frozen shorts" girl from FiveInFive or as you could say an UN-motivated fat girl! ;) I kid... sort of... 5 kids later I have some major bulk to shed. I have been doing Weight Watchers for a little while. I was down 11 lbs then ate 5 right back on. I didn't get this way from LOOKING a food ya know. Anyways, I am loving this blog and plan to stalk it so I can keep my butt on the weight loss train!

  7. Holy moly! Keep up the good work, girly!

    Your list of unapproved foods looks a lot like the elimination diet I went on to continue breastfeeding our 17 month-old, when we found out she had dairy and soy protein intolerances. Both are found in EVERYTHING so I pretty much followed the same rule -- If it was processed, I didn't eat it!
