5 bites day 2


Ok so last night i messed up big and overate.

my loss for that day is only -1 lb so not big but it is something.

i ate for lunch a small piece of rye bread and penutbutter and now i’m not really that hungry at all. (for the moment)

I will have a coffee later and keep my balance. (i love coffee)

Salad for Duh Lunch?? with vegan cheese and homemade dressing. Good God i’m losing it!

siriously considering surgery!



Day 1


well day 1 was not easy and i failed i hope that tomorrow goes better. I have read of people easing their way into this type of thing but not sure how it went for them, i’m not giving up just yet.

5 bites


Boy, i have been so busy at school i have’nt had time to blog, i do appologize. Well i read something today i’m going to try its called the 5 bite diet, skip breakfast have 5 bites for lunch and 5 for dinner. It is based on the premise that like those who have had lapband surgery if we eat only aproxamately what they are eating we can lose too and that our stomach shrinks just like if you had had surgery. we get fat from years and years of overeating and eating unhealthy stuff. This in the end shrinks your stomach and therefore you eat less. I have decided to give it a try and start tomorrow. i ate an apple for breakfast this morning and am still not really all that hungry, so it did open my eyes to how much food we REALLY need,not as much as people think. This was developed by a doctor who specialises in the care of obese individuals and he has had lots of success when he put them on this diet. So i am giving it a try aparentely the first three days are pretty difficult but i will persue this anyway, its like quitting smoking, if you really want it you will succeed (i did succeed quiting) 😉 lot of hugs to all !

BTW my starting weight is 171.8 and i’m hopping for a 110lbs finishing weight but will wait and see how i feel at whatever weight, now that i am 39 and have had a couple of kids.

My first loss


Well ok here is what my weight was at the very start of this journey i was mortified when i saw my number 174.8 *gasp*wow today i feel good for the past two days i have done my yoga each morning and when i weighed myself this morning i weigh 171.2 so i have lost 3lbs 6OZ YAY!!!!! its a good loss i’m happy with it i’m not expecting overnight success but its a start,and i’m on meds that usually make people gain weight so it makes it even harder to lose. I will coninue my yoga each morning so its some activity along with the usual walking and stuff i do daily.WOW i am so happy my journey is on a move!



Ok so its been about two weeks i have not (that i know of) lost any weight mind you its been interesting, my stepfather had a stroke a few weeks ago so life has not quite completely gone back to normal, as for me i have been relatively good this week not to say i did not steal a few cookies here and there. I have been busy with preparing for stage(internship) but for now, i know only two days but in need of something quick i decided to make a salad instead of microwaved something, its a healthy option and filling I find when i have a normal size salad i don’t feel the need to eat more afterwards boy i hope this works and no i’m not living on salads, but may not say no to one unless i’ve already eaten. I will post a pic soon and my starting weight,mind you people knowing my weight makes me cringe mabie tomorrow i will post my weight picture i have to find.
