Tuesday Weigh In

OMG...I'm so discouraged with my new eating clean.  I know it takes time for your body to adjust, but I really wanted to see some results.  I have stuck with it for 6 days now and I do feel better, but the scale has stood still for the past 4 days.  Luckily, it did move a little this morning, THANK YOU JESUS!

I know that gradual, slllloooooowwww weight loss is optimal, but I am REALLY IMPATIENT and always have been.  Actually, as I get older, I have become even more impatient.  Kids did not help me with that flaw because I am only patient with them.  I have read that with eating clean you should take your body measurements because you will see more change with those than the scale, but I don't have a tape measure at home.  I may have to get one today while I am out running errands.  Even though I am a little upset, I am sticking to it.  Like I said before, it is a life style change.  

I have tried some new recipes and well, let me just say, that anything with bread or dough just isn't very good.  Such as the homemade pizza dough or the whole wheat banana nut muffins.  On her site, she keeps saying how great her recipes are so it gives me hope and I get excited just to be let down and about to vomit with the first bite.  Last night, we ended up taking off all the toppings on the pizza and eating them without the crust.  Luckily, I added chicken to the pizza or else it would have been bell pepper, onion, mushrooms, and cheese.  I guess it is going to take time to sift through all of them to find the good ones.  

Also, this process would be much easier with out my other half.  He has been good when it comes to me making something and him eating it without too much complaint, but if he doesn't quit having a sweet tooth  or calling me to ask if there are already plans for dinner because he has an urge for chips and salsa, I may kill him.  Last night when I told him we were having "healthy pizza" he was like "oh ok, those usually don't ever turn out good, but I guess we will see" and of course he was right.  Bummer!  On to the STATS:

Current Weight: 163 lbs
Weight lost since last weigh in: .6 lbs
Total weight lost: 8.8 lbs


  1. Oh honey, Im on the same train! I've been cleansing for 8 days and have lost like nothing, just jumping around the same number. so annoying!! I workout 6 days a week for an hour or more, that should freaking count for something, I think my body hates me!

  2. Megan, I don't think your body can cleanse anymore. You have detoxed it all. LOL! Yes, you work out like a mad woman. Just think about how far you have come...it is amazing!

  3. Ok what the hell are you women doing up so early?

    Go check out tosca reno. I have three or four of her books. Maybe I should go read them again. I, however, don't wake up at four in the morning so the prep of it all is a little harder for me!

    You're both doing great though! Don't get discouraged!
