Default How to Gain 6 lbs in 5 days!

So I told you all the secret to lose 5 and a half pounds in 3 days so I'm sure you all want the secret how to gain 6 lbs in 5 days! It's pretty easy really...you just go on a vacation. It started off good - boca burger at Burger King (who knew they had them!) and then o then it just got worse. So I have no one to blame but like some of you other gals I can't get back on the wagon. I just ate an entire box of cracked pepper and olive oil triscuits. The WHOLE box! I can barely fit into my fat pants. Tomorrow it's on - I can't do FS yet (guests in town this weekend *sigh* again) but i am going to do WW so I don't end up back over the 10 lb mark. That is so deflating don't cha think? It's like you work to get under one of those 10 lb marks and you don't ever wanna go back. So I will be back on here consistently. I try to be funny to mask the disappointment but truth is I'm miserable and I need you guys. Fat is not fun after all and just when I thought it was "in" for the summer.
Love ya all even though that might sound weird and you guys do good for me when I can't do good myself and it'll inspire me...okay? okay!

Wifey - Thanks I really appreciate it. My motivation is to be healthy and to be skinny. So people may say don't focus on the skinny but darnnit just one summer I want to be skinny! And if you don't watch it you are going to have to remove that chubby part real quick!

Lisa- you are so beautiful!!! Really... don't focus on the skinny part. I know i know... you said that people always say that. You know what I am focusing on? The healthy part. The shopping for cute clothes part. The feeling sexy part (lol). Yes, those go with the skinny part, but I don't think about that.

I really hope to take that chubby part off my name, hahahaha! Btw, you weigh 167 and are 5'7... so you are like... a size 12? Is that right?

I started at a size 15 (my largest ever) today I put on a size 11/12 jean and they are not snug. NOW That is motivation I should start throwing the chubbier clothes out. Then I'll have to keep losing weight... or be naked. Ha.



I am getting excited. I have a job for August, we are moving to a new city in January. I graduate in July. New body to go with my new life.


xoxoxoxo to you all!!!

Well, I've decided to quit my diet...but only until Monday. I think I'm burning myself out with so much on my plate right now, that it's keeping me awake at night, and when I do sleep, I'm having nightmares. I figured that it's just too much trying to do everything at once, so this week, I'm focusing on getting back into moving and working out more. I have three appointments with my trainer and one workout date with my friend, who's getting ready to be a bridesmaid soon, too. I'm not going to worry about food so much until Monday, when hopefully working out will be back in my routine again. I'm not sure why I let myself go so fast and furious, but I'm trying to come back. Maybe I'll watch a couple Rocky movies this weekend to get me motivated...ha. He is the hometown hero around my parts of the world. We even have a statue of him in town.

I'm hoping this little break will pay off and help me clear my head...i need it. And this will give me 5 weeks to get this shiny purple gown to fit right. And in two weeks, I'm heading to get some body armor for underneath...spanx anyone?! Maybe I'll do a corset, so my chest can look fabulous and nobody will notice if the dress is tugging anywhere else. Ha. Or let's just hope that I can make the dress fit correctly in a month.

Jill- thanks for the cheers. I know I definitely need it right now.

LighterLou- I keep forgetting to ask you, how do you find the Biggest Lose Challenge online? I think the show is really great but was wondering how it plays out online.

Congrats on the 4 pound weightloss. Your hard work is paying off!

Girls where have you been? It worries me when everyone runs away! How are your diets? How are things in general?


I know many of you are having issues right now, and feel like this is impossible. It isn't! Together we can do this! That is why we are here for each other!


Why doesn't everyone list 5 things that motivate them? Then we have something to say to each other when we are feeling down! I'll start (lol)


1. Feeling happy with my body (esp. around my husband!)
2. Looking amazing in a dress for our 2 year anniversary (in Las Vegas)
3. Graduation day- looking great in front of everyone as I get my Master's degree
4. Knowing I am healthy
5. Watching the numbers on that scale get lower and lower



OK your turn!

Love to you all
Kristin

Chubbywife, I like your thinking! I'ts important to see the big picture when the going gets tough.

I'm finishing up my weekend of quitting and am getting back on the wagon again tomorrow. My trainer and I came up with a plan that has me detoxing Mon-Thursdays, Friday is basically Phase II or III, and then the weekend is free for whatever. I'm also meeting up with him 3 times a week, plus he'll give me some "homework" on the days that we're not together. He's going to whip me into shape! Woo Hoo! I feel like when I'm doing so well during the week, I hate ruining it during the weekend, even if it's a free day. But I feel centered again on getting started tomorrow. I think I really needed those couple of days to just focus on something other than my big fat butt. Ha!

But on a really good note...(other than me getting back on the wagon!) is that I just tried on a dress for the rehearsal dinner, and it fit perfectly. I never looked at the size, since it was in my normal size range at 16, but it ended up being a 14. That's some motivation for me for this week to get back on it. I haven't been able to buy a 14 for a looooooooooooong time! If I could break through to a size 12 this summer, it would be amazing. I have been an 18-20 for a really long time, so that's just unbelievable for me.

Here are my five things that are motivating me right now:
1. A bright shiny purple gown i need to wear in front of 300 people alongside a size 2 wearing the same dress at my sister's wedding. (Do I really need anymore motivation other than that?!?! HA!)
2. Being healthy
3. Feeling comfortable in my own skin and not letting it be an excuse to hold me back.
4. Looking good and feeling good in clothes
5. I'm turing 30 in January and want to jump into my 30's being fit and healthy (and hopefully skinny!) and not bring along all my worries that I had in my 20's like being overweight and not taking control of it. I'm on that path now, and hopefully I won't be so derailed like I have been recently.

It's a new week and a new month. Let's try to make May really successful for all of us, so we can feel great about our accomplishments in time for summer.

I'm joining you all and I am starting tomorrow (May 5th). I am doing the extreme fat smash and hope to lose 20-25lbs on my journey. I have already lost 15lbs on my own but need to change things up to start losing and stop maintaining. It'll be nice to have you all to chat with!

hi Girls!

Jill - Thanks for the undying motivation and encouragement and all of the cheering girls!

Annie - You said something that resonated for me in your top 5 motivators. You said you wanted to be comfortable in your own skin and not let it hold you back. There have been many times people mention doing things but I don't want to be the fat girl so I won't go. Same with last minute plans - I want to make sure my apt is clean and I have my hair and make up done and so I'll say no, I'm busy when I'm not. I need to give that up just a little. I don't want life to pass me by. I've been fighting this battle since 1989 and I want it to be done. I know I'll always have to watch it but I should only have to manage within a 10 lb radius not a 30 lb loss.

I had a good guy friend here this weekend and he said some very nice things - like you are pretty, you are smart, you are funny, there is no reason you shouldn't have a boyfriend - and you know what I kept thinking (of course didn't share with him but i'll share with you gals)..."yeah, but I'm fat." So I need to change that thinking and shed that stigma and enjoy this life. I am ready to be on plan (I'm thinking WW) and like Wifey said it's May and let's have a great May so we are down 5 - 10 lbs by June 1st!!!

Wifey - I carry all of my weight in my midsection so while I wish I was a 12, i'm a solid muffin topping 14!

Here's my 5:
1) Be confident with my looks/weight whatever the number may be
2) Become healthier so I can avoid medical issues in the future
3) Eventually become physically fit and have arm muscles!
4) Enjoy shopping for clothes again and fit into all of the clothes in my closet
5) Gain the self control to not let parties, holidays, and friends sway me into bad choices.

Hi Ladies -

I wrote a long message last week - used all the cute smilies and tried to respond to other's posts, but the computer ATE it. So I am trying again!

I started back on FS after coming home from a mini vacation and a conference where I ate everything - made very poor choices. Previously on FS I had lost 7 pounds and put 6 of them back on.

I restarted and am happy that I am down 1/2 pound lower than before I went to conference!

I'm on phase II now. Just being able to add a little chicken or shrimp to stuff is WONDERFUL!

I have been making the oatmeal cookies with pumpkin. YUMMY!

This weekend I attended a family birthday party. Homemade pizza and an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen. I told the host I was dieting and could not eat anything, but that I had wanted to come, so to please ignore that I was not eating. It worked out fine. I'm glad I didn't cave - that pizza smelled GOOD!

Last week I went shopping and tried on capri pants and bathing suits. I am the classic pear shape. UGH! That was a real motivater to keep on this diet.

Jill - sorry you've been down. I understand family stresses. Try to surround yourself with supportive motivating people and try to tune out those that are not.

Wifey
- Down 20# - GREAT JOB! Toss or donate those bigger clothes. You deserve to buy something smaller! Consignment stores are great to buy "temporary" clothing as you are downsizing.

Annie - Good luck restarting your diet! Getting down to size 14 is good. Isn't it fun to try on smaller clothes?

Lisa - I know what you mean about making excuses not to go or do something. You get an invitation to something and wonder - what did I weigh the last time I saw that person? UGH - it's time to end that!

My goals: Lose 5 pound each month.

My 5 reasons: 1. Health - I am the only person in my family without
high blood pressure. I know getting my weight
down will help keep my blood pressure in a healthy
range.
2. Wedding to go to in late July - I have a slim fitting
dress I'm dying to get back into.
3. Wanting to buy clothes that are smaller.
4. Wanting to feel more confident.
5. Wanting to look better and feel happier for my
husband.

Everybody have a great week!

Suggestion: I was wondering if it would be better if we restarted this
thread every week. It would be a lot less to look through
and seem simpler to me. Just a thought....
