Day 59 - Self-Discipline

Lots of fun happening!! Got a lifestyle changing job that will have me
traveling the globe, been eating healthy, made some new friendships with some classy, wonderful ladies in Newport and been having a ball watching one of my dear friends have her first child and watching lil' Jacob bring his joy to our world.

Met a wonderful young lady this morning that is set to lose 170 pounds and I'm hopeful to be a solid mentor and motivator for her. She likes the same "in your face-stop being fat!" - type motivation that I do - way cool!

I'm at 135 pounds now and steady. I'm sure all this traveling may take another ten pounds off me so I'll have to be careful not to "underdo" the food intake when on the road--still need to eat eight times a day and drink lots of water.

Still drinking about 70 ounces of water a day - somedays it's more difficult than others to get it all down, but even if I don't, I usually come pretty close.

Have a great day all-keep up the fight against fat!

Day 47 - Self-Discipline

Well, my run as Maria in "Man of La Mancha" officially ended with our last show on Sunday evening, followed by a fun cast party.

I was blessed to be a part of such a great musical and my character was pretty funny (if I do say so myself).

I'm keeping up the diet and exercise, back into Ketosis this week and this morning's weight was 138 (goal weight has always been 135).

A big job interview happened recently, still waiting to hear if I got hired. If so, I'll be travelling constantly, but my family and I are prepared for it. Travel will be all over the world...pretty exciting to think about all the upcoming adventures and the fact that I'll be moving so much that my physique will surely change even more...hooray!

How's YOUR weight loss going, friends?

LOVE YOU and keep up with healthy eating habits because there is no feeling like being thin and vibrant!

Day 42 - Self-Discipline

I wore my Calvin Klein suit to work today, but it's definitely getting altered! Wow, it needs about two inches of reduction everywhere...gonna cost me, but it's one of my favorite suits!

Day 36 - Self-Discipline

Well, to make a long story short, I have been so busy between work and rehearsals for "Man of La Mancha" I've not had even five minutes to write much here.

I'm currently back on my regular weight loss menu. I went back to Lindora and started on Metabolic Adjustment, but everything failed. Now, I don't mean failed in a bad way, it's just the amounts of intake and the schedules coupled with an emergency root canal (where I could only eat jello and soup for days) caused an imbalance in following the plan to a "T."

The good news here is that I'm down to 138, so I've been keeping with the rhythm as it were. I still have 3-5 pounds to lose, depending on fluctuating weight, possible plateaus, etc. The goal is still 130-135 pounds so I can shed the small tire I still have lingering.

Next week, I'm planning to go back for a B12 booster.

More later...have a great and healthy day everyone!

Day 26 - Self-Discipline (Current Measurements)

The proof is in the pudding! Lindora Works!

Current Measurements:
Arm: 12.5
Chest: 37
Abdomen: 32.5
Hips: 38
Thigh: 21

Measurements two weeks into program:
Arms: 14
Chest: 38.5
Abdomen: 34
Hips: 40
Thigh: 22.6

Well, I actually got in to see my nurse Jennifer this morning and I'm now on a Metabolic Adjustment period for two weeks. Then, we'll trick the body back into Ketosis so I can shed this last five pounds which now has reached its plateau. It's going to be interesting, to say the least. I have to upload the carbs and proteins, a little hesitant, but I know it will work so I'm going to follow it just as strictly as all the other steps. 

Weeded out more fat clothes from the closet, that's a great feeling! Cache, I'll see you next month for new duds!

Have a great day all!

Day 25 - Self-Discipline

Well, this morning I went to the Lindora clinic to get my first booster shot since my trip to New York. 

I have a lot of water retention at the moment and I weighed in at 142.

Last Friday, I got more Keto Sticks and I'm happy to report I've been keeping up a "Small to Medium" level all weekend! 

Whooo hooo!! I also noticed yesterday that an older short-sleeved dress shirt was BIG around my arms!  So, later this week I need to make a point to get back to the clinic and get my measurements done once again. 

Have a good day all. Oh and....Eat healthy-don't be stupid!
