Geared up (our BL updates)

so, we have been going strong on the diet thing now since
a few weeks before thanksgiving.

i won't lie and say it has been easy.

i will say that a few weeks ago i hit a wall,
i wasn't losing,
and i was a bit depressed about it.

i did another cleanse,
which includes fruits, veggies, and grains (which I had long missed)
and i felt a lot better.

mom and i also realized that the support system makes all the difference

husbands and daughters are great for that.
nay, vital to that.

in fact, this weekend, after my weigh-in,
husband took me to purchase this:

it actually holds up to 12 individualized settings to read your BMI
and tells you the number of calories
you need to comsume to lose fat at your current weight.
rad.

and i really needed one of these:
(both scales are the Biggest Loser brand of course)
this little thing is handy, and keeps me honest and much better
at portion controlling.
good new: 6 oz of chicken is a lot more than you might think...

and the long-awaited:

i love them.
them make me want to run all day.
in fact, i think i will take them to my mom's to go walking
before we watch biggest loser tomorrow...

so,
i finally feel like we can post the results of the meg/peg get skinny fest:

drum roll....

peg: 30 lbs down
meg: 14 lbs down

both over 10% body weight!



i will let you in on a secret...

these are my friends:


also love the ranch, asian silk, honey mustard... pretty much all of them...
they go on everything: chicken, salads...


mrs. dash is the best- and look:
two new kinds!!


[gotta ditch the sodium to lose.
it retains water.
that means us soda drinkers really take a hit,
but it's worth it.]

do i eliminate soda?
hail no.

but i am much better at drinking all 64 water o-z's before i do.
and by that time,
i have been to the other side of the building to pee
like 22 times... not worth it.

favorite veggie currently:
jicama
just go find it, and love on it.
you will be glad you did.


oh and this place:


though you can't see much muscle on me,
i love that i feel stronger....

it is odd how i am so confident walking at night now...
bring it, bad guys...

  1. Way to go with the diet! 14lbs is a great achievement. And I second the Wish Bone Spritz AND Mrs. Dash seasonings. Delish! As for me, one of my New Year's resolutions was to completely remove soda from my diet (not that I drank a lot before) and drink at least 64 oz of water daily. Yeah, the peeing 50 times a day thing gets old, but helps your system SO much. Keep up the good work!
