Crash Dieting . . .

Recommended Posts

OK, figured I would start a new thread so we can share our experiences in this last lil bit. I'm going to need all the motvation in th world to drop these last 5 pounds. 19 days to go....

 

So far today I had yogurt(low fat, low sugars) with grape nuts (yep I needed some form of carbs but I only put in a little). For lunch I had celery sticks and carrots. Just had a banana for a snack.Don't know yet what I'm doing for dinner.

 

Gosh this is going to be tough.

 

Oh and I'm working out tonite with FH, he pushes me hard. He used to be a body builder so he kinda scares me too when it comes to the weights LOL

Although I don't really recommend it, have you tried The Atkins Diet. It does work. The only thing is, you really can only do it for 2 weeks. And then, just be careful because once you start eating carbs again, you put the weight back on pretty quickly.

 

Or what about Colonics? As gross as it is, I hear from people I work, who have done it, that you lose 3 pounds.

Atkins I thought about it but I know I would fail miserably. I love carbs. Don't we all? I'm just going to limit my carbs like some other girls suggested.

For those of you that are really close to your wedding, be careful with how much weight you lose. You want to make sure you'll still fit in your dresses too.

Trust me, I won't be able to lose that much weight. It is really hard for me to lose weight so Im not worried about that... I just know I waited a bit too long to try to tone and maybe loose about 5 lbs...

Some low cal but filling meals:

 

Salad = this salad is zero WW points so I think there's very few calories and very high fiber (to help with a more natural "cleansing"

 

- Lettuce

- Chopped green onions

- 1 boiled egg white

- chopped canned hearts of palm

- cherry tomatoes

- lots of balsamic vinegar

 

**You can add a 1/4 scoop of tuna (canned in water) for some protein.

 

Crisp n' Light Wasa crackers with calorie free salsa

 

Replace your grapenuts with spoon size shredded wheat. It's lower calorie, higher fiber and tastes good with the yogurt!

 

WW zero point soup:

- saute onions and garlic using cooking spray

- Throw in chopped green cabbage, zuccini, green beans, celery, other low-cal low-carb veggies

- Add chopped tomatoes

- Add spices (Salt, pepper, basil, whatever)

- Cook down tomatoes and add fat free broth (veggie, chicken, whatever)

- add spoonful of tomato paste

 

It's filling and virtually calorie free!

 

Drink tons of water!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
