7/7/12….Broccoli has become my enemy July 7, 2012

Filed under: Daily Check In — reborn2shine @ 5:44 pm

Today is a low carb day so, I am filling my meals with tons of fresh veggies that I love.  I have always loved broccoli, one of my favorites.  But I had some raw fresh, cleaned broccoli today and developed the worst case of gas you could ever imagine.  OMG Tums to the rescue.  I never wanted to be one of those women in the “beano” commercials, but it looks like I am not going to have a choice.  I was in the bed for two hours with a bloated gassy stomach…..bleh!!!  Lesson Learned!


Went to the park with the puppies this morning and the local organic healthy pet store was having a flea & tick awareness day, so we scored some really cool crap, including a month of Advantix for each…that was kinda cool.  Sweated my butt off and then came home and have been working on work stuff ever since.  I have a chicken breast marinating which I am going to pan sear and serve over salad for dinner tonight……I CAN’T WAIT TILL TOMORROW & I CAN HAVE A POTATO!!!!!  :0)







7/6/12…WEIGH IN DAY!!! July 6, 2012

Filed under: Daily Check In — reborn2shine @ 11:37 am

I woke up feeling very nervous about my weigh in.  I went to use the bathroom, hoping to lose another oz or 2 (giggle).  Then I climbed on to the scale and what did she say you ask?!?!?!?!


332 lbs !!!!


ROCK ON ME!!!   That is 7lbs in the first week.  Now I know some is going to be water weight, but who the hell cares!?!?!?  7lbs!!!!  Now I just have to keep it going.  Today was cheat day and indulged in some chinese, but we ordered from a different place and when it got here you could actually see the oil floating on top of the dish.  I was grossed out. ( Note to self:  Never order chinese take out from a place where the delivery driver looks like the lead singer from ZZ Top…..I am serious)……….. I ate a little because I was starving, but then a final bite of a seafood dish put me over the edge and I lost my stomach in the office sink.  I guess (despite being totally gross) that this is a good thing.  It means that my body is changing and not accepting those horrible fats anymore.  I am going to have to be super careful in the future because the one thing I truly hate is being sick at my stomach…BLEH!!!


YAHHHHH!!!!!  It’s the weekend.  So ready for some good park time with the dogs.  I know they are ready too. 

Toodles 🙂


Saturday Morning Weigh-In….and Sabotage! June 30, 2012

Filed under: Feeling Lost....Need Support — reborn2shine @ 8:40 am

The scale was kind this morning…..335.  4lbs down, but I guarantee that there is a lot of period weight involved with that.  After 6:30am weigh-in I took Sava & Parker to the new dog park in Overton Park.  If anyone who reads this has a dog and lives in Memphis…..GO!! It is amazing, lots of shade, plenty of water fountains and lots of puppies for them to socialize with.  And lots of people for me to try and make friends with.  Of course I tend to be overly chatty when I am in a new situation and nervous, so I must have had diarrhea of the mouth this morning because I just couldn’t seem to shut up.  I will be better next time though. 

I took my water bottle with me and was able to get lots of fluids in.  As a matter of fact I took my water bottle with me every where I went today and made sure that I was constantly staying hydrated.  But then at about 9:45am I started to get sick.  Headache, dizzy, upset stomach, and a severe craving.  OH SHIT!!!   FAST FOOD WITHDRAWAL!!!  I literally felt like I was going to die.  So, what did I do you ask??  Well, instead of sucking it up and doing the right thing I caved and ran straight out and got a sausage biscuit & a Diet DP.  Headache gone but I feel like a heroine addict.  Completely pissed at myself.  I feel bloated and tired and ready to stay on the couch for the rest of the morning. BUT!!!  I CAN’T!!!  I am going to put in a CD(since my ipod has gone missing) and walk half a mile on the tready!!  I CAN DO THIS!!!  I AM STRONGER THAN THE CRAVINGS!!!
