Lindora Journey Day 4

Went into my regular nurse today at the Rite Aid Clinic. We went over recommended supplements. So, now I'm also on Omega3 and Potassium twice a day. I'm already also taking a multi-vitamin. I got my first B12 shot - painless and I do feel an energy boost.

Day #2 of "Protein Only" going pretty well, no cravings. I did take in 80 oz of water yesterday - pee much?!? I have to drink 80 oz every day-guess I better get used to this. 

Oh and yeah-I'm down two pounds ;-)

Lindora Journey Day 3

Just left the Lindora Clinic where I saw the nurse practitioner, Lisa. She was truly lovely and went over everything on my bloodwork report. Seems my cholesterol is a teenie bit high, but nothing that won't come down over the course of the diet.

This morning I start my three-day protien's breakfast:

80 ounces of water and all the protein a girl could want - every two hours like clockwork ... this should get interesting.

The Lindora Journey ... Day 2

Well, some of you might find this next entry a bit "gross" but, I'm here to be REAL 'bout this diet, ya'll!

Yesterday was an easy day adjusting to the three square meals diet full of goodness and whole foods. I am back to taking vitamins and drinking a lot more water than I'm used to. I hate it, seems like I'm drowning myself and it takes a LOT of time to consume so much, but I'm getting better. I don't know...seems like stops in life for more water have always seemed to be a interruption of stuff I'd rather be doing, like reading the news or educating myself on more plays and films, etc. 

So, about 10:15 last night I had a 20 minute bowel movement. I felt sick to my stomach like I was going to throw up. Eating poorly caught up to me. The cleansing felt like it was coming from way up in my intestines..I was sort of shocked, but still not the least bit surprised. I would get up and be right back down again. Mind you, I had not drank any fiber yet...crazy, right? So, I drank one of the Lindora Fiber Iced Teas (you mix it with water) right after that. I figured, ok, by morning this should kick in too and I'll be completely cleaned out. Well, nothin' happened yet and it's now noon. is day #2. I went over to the clinic to see my nurse and she plotted out my next three days of the protein only diet. I get to eat some decent things like a hard boiled egg, chicken, turkey, protein bars, etc. To answer your question....nope, nothing but protein, fiber drinks and 80 oz of water (minimum).

They got another $70 out of me for supplements, but, in all honesty, they're much lower in calories, higher in protein and lower in carbs than anything I could find in the store ... and believe me, "this" detail girl looked.

Oh gosh, had my picture taken today too. I'm told I "may" be part of their marketing, we'll see. Wouldn't that be awesome! I would really like to be a light for someone else, that's for sure!

Until tomorrow....I'm on my last "enjoy it all day" (within reason)

The Lindora Journey Begins....Day 1

Friday, I went in and had my bloodwork done and got the Lean for Life book and some handouts about Ketogenic diet and such.

This morning, Monday, I went for formal education with my nurse and she instructed me that I must start the Prep Day 1 Meal Plan today and keep that through Wednesday. I will be going back in the morning to report what I've eaten today. I was also given my Daily Action Plan Journal to start recording my diet and exercise.

Current Weight: 155
BMI: 24

I'm "just" on that cusp of being overweight. This is where panic mode should really set in for all of us .... we'd surely have a much healthier and leaner population.

Here's those Day #1 pics I promised you...(Posted 9/4/14)

Leave me a comment here if you're going to try hard and lose weight with me-would love to hear from you!

Lindora: Leaving All The Previous Blog Posts Alone - But Here's an Update!

So, being that it's just too tough to get up to LA and actually work out with Dallas (even though that was always the goal), I've come to realize I need daily "close" discipline for myself. 

So, after seeing two people I know basically lose a whole person, (Ryan and Diann) I decided to take the plunge and go to Lindora.  I have 20 lbs to lose. I broke....dangit, I broke my own desire to lose. I guess this is the honest way to put it. Work became more important....paying off bills became more important. 

The good news is that my credit score is now through the roof! The bad news is my body has paid the price.

So, I went in to the Lindora Clinic this morning and had my bloodwork done and a full checklist of things that I'm about to embark on. I have my physical with the Doctor on Wednesday morning and shortly after that I will start my program with the B12 shots and all. 

The day the program ends will be somewhere around October 3rd. 
My current weight is 155. There, I said it. Piggie need rescue for good!

Today is my first real day off in about two weeks and I've got a pile to go through on my desk, but I just wanted to prepare you readers for what will be DAILY entries in order to help myself stay focused. I hope you'll enjoy the journey with me. This will be the last few days of eating whatever I want and I was instructed to do just whatever you want to prepare your body for your new diet. we go....are you ready to embark on this exciting Lindora adventure with me?
