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 THREE: July 18, 2010

Weigh In: 239 lbs. What the heck? Did the other pounds just vanish overnight? I weighed and reweighed myself and it kept coming back to this, so I guess it's accurate. If this is correct, I've lost four pounds. :)

It's been a long boring day of sitting in front of my computer sending out about another 20 resumes and looking for jobs all over the internet. I didn't excersise yesterday or today, shame on me. But the diet itself is going fabulously well.

Food Intake:
  • Avocado, Tomato and Parmesan sandwich on whole wheat bread (448 Calories)
  • Popcorn (105 calories)
  • Steamed Broccoli Carrots and Bell Peppers with Shrimp and Soy Sauce (263 calories)
  • Vanilla Ice Cream with Almond Joy (310 calories)
Total Caloric Intake: 1126


  1. I'd weigh yourself in again in the afternoon and evening... Or only once a week. Day to day can get frustrating. :)

  2. Sure, it's frustrating, by day-to-day provides some invaluable perspective. Your sandwich looked delicious Karen. Was it filling? and what was for dinner?

  3. Angela: Weight changes throughout the day, and they say the most accurate time to do it is right when you wake up. It's less about being frustrating and more about keeping a log of how my particular body works.

    Whit: I had steamed vegetables and shrimp for dinner. Delicious. :D
