Time to Face the Music

The time has come, it seems, to face the reality and update my numbers on MyFitnessPal to reflect the current status of my weight loss (or in this case, gain) journey.  Evidently, it’s much easier to ignore the reality when it isn’t glaring out at you in big red script from the side of one’s blog page.  So, here we are and what had been 18 pounds lost is now a mere 12 pounds lost – Wait…  What??!  12 Pounds Lost?!  That’s great!!  That’s better than 12 pounds gained!!  Time for a head shake on that and appreciate where I’ve gotten to so far in the journey instead of bemoaning a temporary (yes, you heard me!  I said ‘temporary) five pound gain.  🙂

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again (since it’s kinda the theme of this blog…), it’s time to renew my commitment to myself and my journey towards becoming the person I know I can be.  Or, if you prefer a much more graphic description we will turn to “The Sister” who says she doesn’t want ‘Swamp Ass‘ so has to lose enough weight that her butt cheeks don’t rub together!!  There’s a mental smell-o-vision I really didn’t need to have!!  And yet, somehow effective in it’s message….?!

So today brings a grocery store run to stock up on healthy food options, including lots of fruits and veggies and low GI carbs cause, yeah, that’s how I roll.  I find the low carb/low GI route works for me when I actually commit to it.  It’s the fact that ‘forever‘ is a very long time and that’s where the problem (and regain) comes in.  But it’s a place to start and see that next 10 pound barrier kicked to the curb.  And, btw, even with the 5 pound gain, I still haven’t gone back to that old 10 pound barrier so I’m still happy with the 2nd digit of the 3.  See?  All has not been lost (or gained??) Lol

Off to make myself a breakfast smoothie to get this show on the road!!

Here we go!!

So I’m seeing some success on the weight loss journey this time around.  I’ve finally (FINALLY!!!!) broken through a 10 pound barrier that had been dogging me for months.  Tracking and logging my intake and exercise seems to be working for me this time around.  And using the MyFitnessPal site is easy and right up my techie alley.  🙂

Never one to settle for what’s working well already, I’ve decided to take on a new food program that looks promising.  Well, it’s making promises anyway…

 

BodyReset

Today sees Day 1 of Harley Pasternak’s The Body Reset Diet.

The program promises to kick-start your weight loss with 5 days of health-packed smoothies and snacks that will see the pounds falling off to keep you motivated to continue with the plan after the first 5 days.

I’ve had the white and red smoothies so far today and, I must say, Yummy!  And I’m sure not hungry though The Hubby looks a little sad – hey, it was his choice!!  Looking forward to the green smoothie for supper (spinach in a blender!!).

So I’m feeling positive.  Feeling upbeat and feeling that there’s hope for me yet.  I’ll keep you posted on the smoothies and our progress.  😀
