Day 8.

OMG- I lost a pound this week. MIRACLE! So happy, excited to start this week's rampage down a pound.

Speaking of my new attempts to drop as much as possible in the next 3 weeks, I went to the gym this morning and lifted some weights and did abs. I haven't lifted weights in months, it felt really good to be back in the gym, doing resistance training again.

I'm also tracking again. I was thinking about it at my meeting this morning and I remembered that when we track, we lose more, and we lose more consistently. And since I'm pulling out all the stops...

I was also looking at the little lean meats and proteins section of the booklet and I realized that #1) I have protein to put in protein shakes (if I need more protein for lifting), and 2)there are still a ton of ways to get protein besides meats. So I'm still sticking to my vegan-ish ways. I just feel like it's working; I feel healthier, stronger, and I'm shedding weight easier (although I'm sure you're can you tell, you're only losing a pound a week....well, I haven't been working that hard either).

Anyway, i'm excited to be on this strict rampage for the next few weeks. Feels good!



  1. Congratulations! Great start to your "lose weight NOW" challenge. :D wohoo, you! Deb

  2. I was SOOO happy to see where your weight is. I bet you are thrilled! Even with the holidays, you still dropped. D! Look at you go! You look great and that weight is just melting away!
    I had no idea you were cutting meat out of your diet. You said vegan. Does this mean you are cutting out every animal source of food? I must know more about this. What are you eating?! I just don't think I could do it. Haha! I love meat way too much. I'm so glad it is working for you though and you feel great! YAY for D! I love your face!
