I didn't think it was possible but...







I didn't think it was possible but I actually did it...I now weigh 200 lbs.  That was a number I never
wanted to or never thought I'd see.  I was nearly knocked off the scale when that number popped up.  I would write some choice expletives right now to express my feeling but I can't find any that are strong enough.  Even string six to ten word together won't help me illustrate of how I feel.

I'm uber depressed over this.  I want to give up and eat myself into an early grave.  My mind races with all the comfort food I could eat to absorb the pain of being huge.  How insane is that?  I want to give up and crawl into bed and wait for the sweet release of death. 


But I'm a Weeble.

When a Weeble gets knocked down they bounce right back up (In my case, I bounce back up because my butt is too big. lol).  You can't keep a Weeble down.

So...I need to fix this.

I started this blog a year ago and like my diets, stopped.  I lost my Weeble way.  But now I'm getting back up on my chubby little feet and will waddle up Mt. WeightLoss.

Unfortunately, this climb up Mt. WeightLoss isn't a smooth, straight path.  It's up hill all the way.  And once I've scaled Mt. WeightLoss, this road becomes a top that I must keep balanced and spinning, never letting my attention or focus waver or I will tumble down the mountain side.  My goal while climbing this mountain is to purchase/develop the right safety equipment so that even if my top stops spinning I will be able to catch myself before I fall too far and I will be able to make the climb easier and faster than before.

This is my Weeble path.

I made a break through

I have finally broke my plateau I was on.  I lost my initial few pounds but couldn't get past 193 lbs.  Well, today I weighed in at 192.6.  I was so excited. 

I'm really enjoying this raw diet.  Today, I a marinaded portobella mushroom with veggies.  It was delicious.  The rest to the day I will have my green drink: 1 head of romaine lettuce, kale, spinach, lemon, orange, and 2 apples.  I love this drink and look forward to it.

I really think this will work for me because it's not a diet but a life style.  This is how I want to be, how I want to live and that is why I know it will work for me.  It's not something that will work for everyone but it's what I want and the life path I'm choosing.

So I did the raw diet for 7 days.  I didn't lose any weight.  I really thought I would so this was very depressing.  But on the upside I felt great, I loved it so I'm going to continue.

I went on vacation for 3 days and eat crap and I felt like crap.  So today I'm starting raw food again today.  I'm really going to do a lot of juicing.  I make this juice out of a head of romaine lettuce, 2 cups of spinach, an orange, a lemon, and 2 apples.  It is so good, I look forward to it. 

I'm really looking forward to doing this and I hope to convert my family to it.  I realized that I'm poisoning my children by giving them the processed crap I feed them.  I am realistic, I don't think that they will be 100% raw nor do I think I will but we will be as much raw as we can be.  I really want my husband to do this but I think he will be the hardest one to convert.  But I'm going to do it. 

I'm not sure why I didn't lose any weight but I don't care.  I know that this is the way to go.  I'm committing to this for 30 days starting today.

I'm Raw

Weigh in: 194.6

I decided not to do the HCG diet at least not now.  I have decided to go Raw.  I tried it once before and lost weight and felt great.  I stopped because it was time consuming and expensive.  I've learned a little more about it and really feel like I can do it this time.  I'm not 100% raw, I like meat.  I will have meat 1 or 2 times a week. 

I choose this because I can make things that I enjoy and I don't have to feel guilty about eating them.  I made cranberry macaroons yesterday that are wonderful and because they are raw I can eat the whole batch if I want.  I didn't but I could. 

I'm also very excited about this diet.  I don't even think of it as a diet but more of a life style choice.  When I tried the HCG diet I felt depressed and deprived when starting it. 

So this is me know.  I'll keep you posted.

HCG day 6

Weigh in:  195.4 lbs
gain: 1.6 lbs

Ok, so the last two days have been really bad.  I haven't followed my eating plan.  I had an audition and I think I was a little stressed by it so I ate my way through it.  This is what I always do.  But today, I'm determined to be good and follow my eating plan.  I'll let you know how I did later today.  I'm at war with myself.

Day 4 &5

Weigh in: 193.2 lbs
loss:  1.6 lbs
total: 6 lbs

Day 5:

Weigh in:  193.8 lbs
gain:  .6 lbs


Yesterday I broke down and ate poorly.  This seems to be what I do around this time.  I already started today poorly by eating 2 fajitas.  I will do better for the rest of the day.  I'm weak and gave in, I'll be strong for the rest of the day.
