After struggling for years with my weight, I decided that the best way to motivate myself was to share my journey with others. This means brutal honesty, folks, and you'll probably learn more about me than you ever needed to know. :D My story is not any different than all the other people out struggling with the same thing, but I'm going to show myself, and you, that this is possible. And I'm gonna document every moment to prove it.

Struggling with the same thing? Want to share your journey?

DAY SEVEN: July 22, 2010

Weigh in: 236 lbs ( seven pounds to date!)

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't updated in a while I spent a couple days with my boyfriend and getting on the internet to blog wasn't really an option...

Let me say that he has been really really supportive of this whole thing, and that's making it about ten times easier. When we go out he pays attention to what I can or can't eat and gives me stories since he struggled with weight loss and beat it. He's inspiring and loving and I can't believe how lucky I am.

As far as eating out goes I had forgotten how incredibly difficult that is to do on a diet. I am craving grease and fat so much that I have dreamed of an In N Out Double Double two nights in a row now. I am missing my fried foods badly. But I'm going to soldier on and if I lose ten pounds by the end of this month I'll treat myself a little. That seems fair, right?

Anyway. Food content of the days I missed: 1 fruit smoothie (approx 250 calories) 1 omelette (about 350 calories), A Disneyland Lunch from the Wine Tratoria (Approx 600 calories) Mongolian Barbecue (approx 600calories) and on the second day I slept like ALL DAY and we ate when I finally woke up and I had a Barbecue Chicken Salad and Zucchini Bread and I was SO HUNGRY, I ate it all. (with all the avocado and dressing--1300 Calories)

Food Intake:
  • 1 Caramel Light Frappucino (90 calories)
  • 1/2 sandwich Genoa Salami (326 calories)
  • Chips and Salsa (151 Calories)
  • White Bean Stew (135 calories)
I loved this recipe so much I thought I'd share it with you and blog a couple pictures of how mine came out. It was delicious!
  • Milk, Two glasses, whole (292 calories)
Total Caloric Intake: 994 calories

Fitness Log:
  • 40 minutes of Yoga, 12 poses through an instructional video. It was fun and actually really relaxing, though hard work. Some of those poses I broke a sweat. :D


  1. Your methodology perplexes me, dear.

  2. It's just a food diary, what's perplexing about that? Lol

  3. That looks amazing! And let me know if the yoga is worth it.

  4. I most certainly will! So far I'm feeling pretty relaxed, and stretched.

    And the recipe was yummy and super easy. You'd like it, Whit.
