    Liquid Diets.....Anybody tried one?

    GOOD LORD!!!! DON'T DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ! I tried it and it was the worst thing ever. I have never felt so sad and empty in my life. Our bodies were designed to eat and get rid of waste on their own. Not eating is soo unnatural and unhealthy no matter how you spin it. I tried this for 5 days and it was HELL. I broke down on the 5th day and ate a strawberry...best thing I have ever tasted in my life.
  2. Bah. I havent been doing well AT ALL. I've been feeling pretty crappy lately... The hunny and I went out and bought PS3 and Rockband this weekend - seems to be cheering me up. lol. I'm pretty much addicted to the 'drum kit' and it is totally keeping me from hoarding the fridge when I'm at home. We also got a free bowflex, so I'm going to try and do that 3 times a week. Having such a hard time making it to the gym between working 40 hrs/week and going to school full-time. Waaaahhhhh, play me a freakin violin. I'm a cry baby, I know it. Just not dealing with the stress that great right now. Off to play the faux drums...Keep up all the good work ladies
  3. Beautiful Dress! Very different and the colour looks great on you!

Whew - that is a relief compared to 6.4 although i never like gaining i am relieved. Ann - i am sending you over a new pic now LOL Thank goodness! This just goes to show us that we really shouldnt trust that darn scale anyways!!! Quote: Originally Posted by Nrvsbride Hi girls and congratulations to all those who lost. For those that didn't, like I say every Wednesday...today is a new day. Gotta leave the past behind and keep moving forward. I lost 5.6 pounds this week. I swear I have never felt so happy in my life. I guess my frosting incident didn't mess me up too bad. Here are some of the things I have changed which have helped me to lose some weight. B/c I can't bring my own lunch (I'm a lawyer and I spend all morning in court and my food would go bad if I brought it with me) I have to rely on outside food. Not the healthiest choice but I have no other. So I usually eat salad from the Pizzeria. Well they put a balsalmic vinagrette dressing on their salads. I used to order it on the side b/c they literally drench the salad in the dressing. Well one day I decided to ask how many calories were in their dressing. It turns out there is 120 calories per 2 tablespoons! OMG I almost passed out! No wonder I wasn't really losing much. So I went to the supermarket and bought my own fat free dressing that is 15 calories per 2 tablespoons and now I order the salad plain and put my own dressing. It helped me lose a lot of weight this week. Also instead of regular sushi rolls I eat brown rice ones now. I don't eat any white rice or white bread. Only brown rice and whole wheat bread. And I learned to portion my meals better. Protein the size of the palm of your hand and 1/2 a cup of cooked rice per meal. I try to eat starches only once a day. I exercise 5 times a week. 1 hour of cardio, no weights. Holy Smokes! Way to go girl! And thanks for the tips! Quote: Originally Posted by froggie1013 I love brown rice sushi. So yummy! Great job Glenda! I lost .8 this week. Woo hoo! It's a loss! I feel like I should've gained though, so I'll have to work extra hard this week to keep next week's numbers down. Keep working hard ladies!! 0.8 - MEEE tooo!!! I thought it might be more because of the flu but nope! CONGRATS TO EVERYONE in the contest so far. Whether its a big or a small loss it's still a loss! Keep it up!
  5. WOW!!! Looks DELISH! I've never seen Quesadillas like that before!

The good thing about the FLU is that it really does last only 24 hours most of the time. Quote: Originally Posted by Nrvsbride Aww I hope you feel better. The only bright side I can find for you is that you may lose 7 pounds like Saraha did! And you maybe the big winner for this week. Sorry that probably isn't making you feel better but I'm trying. I don't even want to look at the scale tomorrow. I really don't feel like I did bad aside from that frosting incident (trust me I threw it out), but I also didn't get to the gym last night. I am 100% going if it kills me tonight, although I am beyond exhausted. I need to burn off this frosting! I don't know why but lately I feel bloated. If we are losing weight shouldn't we feel thinner? I for some reason feel fatter! Ahahaha. Unfortunately, my body holds on to every OUNSE of weight it can, even when I'm sick. So I definitely will not be as lucky as Sarah! I don't blame you for the frosting incident, I've been kown to take a spoon to the nutella jar every now and then. It's a short trip to guilt city I tell ya.
  7. Ohhhh my goodness what a weekend. I've been doing soo well going to the gym and eating right and then BAM! Easter hits and it's chocolate galore. Yesterday though, I woke up to the FLU!!! I can't even remember the last time I was that sick. All I've had for the past 2 days is chicken soup and gatorade. NOT FUN!
  8. I loove chocolate so this is a hard weekend for me. Cadbury cream eggs are my favourite...I just googled it and there are 171 calories per egg so that just means I will have to dedicate some time on the treadmill! Calories in Cadbury's - Creme Egg
  9. Just sent you my nasty weight pic Ann!
  10. Looks like it was a great time! The brittney wigs are such a great idea!

Good luck ladies!! I cant wait to see the big numbers your going to pull intoday! HOLY SHIZZLE!!! Thats crazy! My aunt always said that the flu is the perfect way to start and end a diet. lol. Hope you are feeling better though! Quote: Originally Posted by LC_Rachel Ok so I'm not a biggest loser contestant. I complained about not losing weight well and my FI said "just poop more. That makes you lose weight." haha just wanted to share his oh so insightful tip. hahahahahahaha!!!!!!! Gotta love the male brain's logic! Quote: Originally Posted by Yari I am no longer doing WW. I went to a nutritionist and he put me on a plan that requires me to eat six times a day...only chicken, steak or fish. I can have one starch in the morning and afternoon, but none at night. This plan is a lot harder than WW, but I am determined to stick with it for at least two months. If at two months I don't see a significant drop, then I will switch back to WW. YARI! This is the plan that I do also, it works WONDERS, you just have to stick to it. Lots of planning, but you always end up with a balanced meal with protein, carbs and fat. I love this way of eating. This contest got me back into the habit again and I couldnt be happier! Mkayyy so I lost 3lbs this past week so thats pretty good. I had my "treat of the week" today and it was a skor blizzard from DQ. YUMMMM!!!!! About 700 calories (EEEK!) but I will just have to shrink the rest of my meals for the day and hop on the treadmill....everything in moderation I guess!!!! Keep up the good work ladies! All of you are so motivational and inspirational!

    Announcing the new BDW Starfish Journal

    Awwww, I really like this idea. I was thinking about a starfish for feb 09 but I'm still not sure what colour bouquet I will have...White bouquet=blue starfish, green bouquet=white/clear starfish. Decisions!
  13. Anyone having a St. Patty's drink tonight? I ate really well today and ran the stairs...*correction* WALKED the stairs at our escarpment. lol. So I'm feeling really good now, but the hunny called me and wants to go out for a drink. Hmmm. I will have to pick a really light beer or just have a diet coke. Hmmm.....
  14. STUNNING! Totally worth the hard work, I would love to receive an invite like that! Where did you find those boxes?

Going for a beer with my hunny tonight!
