Day 69

Submitted by Janetcooper07 on Sat, 12/23/2006 - 12:02pm.

I am really busy today, but I lost another lb.! even during a holiday week.  I have a coworker (monica) who is interested in joining DSP after the holidays, she went to the website (www.thedietsmartplan.com) at lunch yesterday and she said that the cost was $14.95 for six months! I guess they are running a holiday special. 

I will write after Christmas, Merry Christmas everyone!

Hi everyone, I guess my ranting and raving and pouring my heart out was just steam.  I am down another 1/2 lb. this morning!  I also think with cookies and such in the oven tonight that weight loss from here on in until new years maybe tough. 

Danny surprised me last night with tickets for new years and then lined up a babysitter for the night.  I have to go and buy a new dress.  I am looking forward to buying a size 10 rather than a size 14, so maybe the cookies will have to weight.

My food diary this week looks better than I thought, DSP has said some nice things about the last fe

Day 65

I am feeling somewhat better today, but I am still overwhelmed with the holidays on top of me.  This is my first season working and I feel I am so far behind, I doubt that everything will be done by xmas.  The kids are decorating and Danny has been a big help.

Speaking of big help, the diet coaches at DSP have been great.  Every day I get a tip of the day and some of them are really good.  The problem I am having is that I don't have time to incorporate all of them, I am having trouble simply weighing in and eating my snacks. I think I need to email them and ask them to start snack time over for me until the 1st.

Day 64

NINE WEEKS ON A DIET, I really feel like I am missing out this time of year.  I am really depressed and I am not happy right now, it maybe just the monday's but I was not happy this weekend and self denial did not help.  I am stressed about the shopping, I haven't sent out the first xmas card, I have not wrapped nor shipped gifts, the kids are out of control, they are out of school all next week and I have to work a couple of days since I don't have vacation.

Danny has lost weight too, he is starting to look very good.  I am noticing probably about a 10 lb. weight loss in him and he is t

Day 60

I can't believe I am on day 6-0! Yeah me, I have stuck with it and now have lost 15 lbs.  I think I am going to have to post in that section on the member boards tonight as a small accomplishment.

 time for a snack, hold on.  As I sit here and eat my granola bar, I am reflecting on how far I have come.  Not in terms of weight loss, yeah, that is nice, but more importantly, the change in me.  I am no longer dominated by food and I have more energy.  My weekends are more active, I have a fulfilling and rewarding job, I enjoy eating, and I have self esteem.

Ask me if it is worth it, I

They had gourmet cookies today at the office, huge temptation, but the good news is that I am at 188, down 15 lbs!

Day 57

I am now at 188.5 lbs, down 14.5 in 8 weeks.  I have spent no money except for my sign up fees of $30, I guess that is a good investment.  I am walking at night, but with everyone sick, I really need some time to myself to regroup.  I feel guilty about working, shopping, and trying to be a good mom and wife.  I am getting my size 10 clothes, Danny seems to think that I look better in them, he really noticed the difference while he was laying on the couch (he stayed home today) and I walked by, he called me and told me that he really notices it in my face and my tush.

Day 56

I struggle to write anything this time of year.  I am so busy, we just got back from shopping, and now, I need a nap!  I am eating fast food because I have to grab something quick.

I would like to say that I really like The Diet Smart Plan's approach to fast food.  In a pinch, you can have it without guilt or worry and really know the difference.  Today, it was a junior whopper without cheese or mayo for less than 250 calories with a small fry.  I did well, and I am still on the plan.  Memo here, it is effective to know where you are going before you go, it makes the research much easier.

Day 53

another half lb! things are going very well this week, but I am now sick of carrots and peas.  Enough of the free foods for a while, I think I will move up to basics.  By the way, 14 lbs. total in 53 days, not bad but I still have a ways to go.

Day 51

Sorry I missed my weekly recap weigh-in, but I am now under 180 lbs!!!!!! GO ME.....

I think I am getting very close to that size 10 I have been waiting for.  I am thinking by Christmas I want everyone, I mean everyone to buy me new clothes or give me a gift card to shop for myself.  I think that I could get that size 10 at the rate I am going.  I really see it in my arms, no more flab hanging down, now just a bit squishy. 

Work has been good for me, I feel like I am making a real contribution.  I miss the kids and I have had to fight guilt this week.  Eating at work also presents new challenges and new opportunities to lose weight.  I hate the going out as a group, not the group, but the fear of overeating in front of others.
