Yep, that's right. The month of November netted me a total weight loss of -16 lbs. And that was without much exercise at all, just replacing two of my meals with shakes and taking my multivitamins. Can't tell you how amazing it was to weigh in after Thanksgiving and weigh less. My goal now is to at least lose 20 before Christmas, but I expect more. I'm on the fat loss train and it's running down the track :) I've been walking a few times a week at my regular haunt but just casually. I imagine I will want to start doing more sometime but I'm enjoying getting the results without having to work too hard. I know that won't last forever. So cheers to everyone that wants to give themselves a weight loss for the holidays!
Ok, I just had a little bit of green tea and am feeling a bit hyper so bear with me. What a week!!! This working thing is hard to do while trying to eat healthy! I think it's harder because it's just not me sitting at a desk doing my thing, but sitting with someone training me. I forget to eat, then my lunch I'm famished BUT sticking to my program. Here's what it really comes down to PLAN PREPARE PACK. I see it as really the only way to be successful. Sure, you can try to buy something healthy at fast food, eat a salad at lunch and run home before you die of starvation BUT I have some bad news. That doesn't work for someone trying to lose weight. Believe me, I've tried it. For breakfast I'd get a oatmeal and unsweetened tea from McDonalds. Sounds healthy. right? I'm not going to judge McDonalds but I am going to say changing your life and the way you eat involves, ironically, changes. Eating out all the time isn't really changing any patterns. Not saying that we can never eat out again but while in the patterning phase, it should be at a minimum. Save some money, reduce your calories, change your life. Sounds good to me!
I'm down another 2 pounds! I made a commitment to myself that I was going to lose 20 before Thanksgiving but I realize Thanksgiving was a lot closer than I thought...lol. Even so, if I try and fail I will still weigh less than I did. I'm really excited to see the results I'm getting. I feel good, am not hungry (unless it's because I didn't eat) and can't wait to see the changes continue. I start my new job as a secretary tomorrow for a place that is around the block from me. Thank goodness, I needed some money! The better thing is that Sean and I are still moving forward with our health and wellness club. If that takes off I'm gonna be soooo happy! Shoot, happy either way. Feels good to feel happy, I think I'll drink in as much as I can for later :)
Yes, I feel it. My happiness is returning. The winter is upon us but it feels like spring to me. hehehe Ok, not quite that dramatic but I'm feeling great. Not only did I get a job that is only a block away but things with Herbalife are going great with me. In January I'm going to head up an 8 week weight loss challenge. It will be $25.00 to join. We will have weekly meetings to measure/weigh in, learn stuff and encourage one another. Since you're reading my blog you know I'm an internet type gal, so I will make the meetings available for web conferencing. Cash will go to the winner! If you're interested in joining, let me know.
Today I went for a walk on my usual nature trail. What a beautiful, brisk day! I just love walking along the river, seeing the deer and squirrels along the trail. I met a gal today that's been doing Herbalife this year since January and has lost 100 pounds! She told me for her first 35 pounds she didn't exercise either. That is so hard to believe! I know she wasn't lying but it goes against what my messed up head thinks people have to do. She told me her first month of doing the product she didn't do any sort of exercise. Then when she got some weight off she started walking. Guess where. Yep, on the nature trail I've been on! That was too funny. So I will continue on as I am, drinking my shakes, taking my vitamins and fitting into clothes that were too snug for me a little over a week ago. I can't wait to get rid of everything in my closet :D
I LOST 11 LBS. THIS WEEK!!!! I can't believe it! I'm still in shock!!! My mind is overwhelmed. All this year I've been trying to lose weight and I haven't done this well. Not with counting calories (although I'm still keeping track), not with WeightWatchers, not even with CrossFit (even though I lost inches). It's mind blowing and I still haven't been able to come to grips with it. If I do that well this week then I know that it's because of the Herbalife product I'm on. My goal is to lose a total of 20 lbs. by Thanksgiving and 30 lbs. by Christmas. If that happens I'm gonna go crazy! lol
I haven't weighed in yet, but I feel good. I've been eating right, drinking my shakes, taking my vitamins and logging my stuff. I don't feel bloated and I don't feel hungry. I definitely think I'm headed in the right direction.
I went to an Herbalife rah rah meeting on Saturday with Sean. We both agreed, if we had the results they had and made money like that we'd be a little more excited as well :) In the meantime it is always encouraging to be around people that are working on their health and feeling good.
So here's the deal - this is the WORST time of year to lose weight. My goal is to lose 20 by Christmas. Wish me luck....I'm gonna need it :D
Here we are in November, let's recap the last year. Started off strong with my health, fitness and eating. Tanked when I got a job in March and have had a problem getting started again after getting laid off in August. Well then I started going to Crossfit (which i LOVED) but the old knees couldn't keep up so I had to quit.
While I was going to Crossfit I started going to a place called Brix afterwards to get a protein shake. Turns out it's all Herbalife stuff. They asked if I needed a job but at the time I said no. Now after being unemployed for a few months, I've changed my mind and today is my first day as a Wellness Coach! I've been taking their product for two weeks (2 meal shakes, 1 snack shake and 2 small healthy meals) and have lost 6 pounds. That means I've lost about 9 lbs. in the past month. I think I'll celebrate....WOOOOOOOO HOOOOO!!!!
It will be interesting to see how this whole thing plays out and see if I get results. All I know is this year my mind has had a great deal of the brain cells taken up with figuring out how to get my body in shape. I sincerely hope that this product will help me feel better and get on my to getting in shape.
My name is Kat and I'm a single mom of two young adults. I have not always been overweight but after having children and going through some personal hurdles, let it get out of control. My philosophy about eating is this: Eat real food. Real eggs, butter, veggies. Eliminating processed junk as much as possible. I eat butter, not faux butter product because I believe my body can better process real food rather than chemicals.
