3-15-2016. Laat week I started using Keto-OS every day and my energy level is wat up, I'm down 7 pounds & I've lost 1.5 inches from my waist!! I'm losing FAT and Weight!! :-) There is so much information on their website -www.gethealthyandslim.pruvitnow.com. Watc
h me MELT!! 5/4/2015 - On May 1, 2015 I began a new program that involves drinking Iaso Detox Tea from TLC. During my first 3 days I lost 3.6 Pounds!! I couldn't believe it!!! I even FEEL better and LIGHTER! Today I began taking the Resolution Drops from TLC and it helps to control the cravings for sweets, starches and fried foods. People lose up to 3 Pounds a day on these drops so I can't wait to way myself tomorrow morning. I will keep you posted. So far today I am feeling really good. You can eat a 1200 calorie diet with the Resolution Drops, but I am going to go up to 1500 calories because I am exercising with it. I purchased my products from www.GetHealthyandSlim.com. Wish me luck!! 3/30/2015 Today I began walking outside during the day time while I am at work. I walked about 2/3 around our largest building. I know that is not much (but it's a very large building) but I am glad I was able to do that. When I stopped, I wasn't out of breath, but my heart was beating very FAST. I am not going to let that stop me. I have got to do this for myself. I also need the fresh air and sunshine each day instead of just sitting in my office all day. I pray that I can continue in the right direction for my weight loss goal. 3/16/2015 Today is Monday, March 16th. I drank a healthy smoothie, scrambled eggs and 2 slices of bacon. I am going to start "MOVING" today even if it is only 15 minutes. I have GOT to get this weight off now. I have been feeling very tired. I slept away most of the weekend and I am still tired today. I hope my health is okay, but I am going to begin being PROACTIVE with my health because no one will do it for me. I have to do it myself. I pray that I can do it and be consistent in eating right and exercising. 10/23/14 On Monday, October 20th I started taking the pills that Dr. Oz. recommended for weight loss. I can't even spell the name or say the name so I will put it in later tonight. It is an appetite suppressant and it is supposed to help you to lose weight in your midsection and help you to have better moods, more energy and help you to lose weight by blocking the fat from being produced in your body. You are only supposed to take it for 12 weeks max so I am going to try it. I take two pills before breakfast and then if I can remember, I take two pills before lunch, but sometimes I forget and have to take the last 2 pills before dinner. It seems to be working because I am not as hungry. I weighed in at 278.5 at Planet Fitness, but I weighed in at 281 on Amy's office scale (made like the old doctor'f office scale). I will weigh myselff again on next Monday, Oct. 27th and let you know how I did. The only thing I have not yet incorporated is the exercise. I bought some tennis shoes to use when I walk upstairs on the 3rd floor at work, but I have not walked yet. I have got to get moving. I am going to the GNC store tomorrow (Friday) to get a purer form of the supplements because the bottle that I have has a couple of fillers in them. Amber said she is not yet ready to try the supplements until she sees how it works for me. I pray that it works. I am also doing the measurement containers that I bought from the television that helps you with portion control, and it seems to work and you don't get hungry. Amber has not started that yet either. I hope she does something soon because she has really gained too much weight. I am trying to set an example for her. Pray for me and for her. Have a blessed day. 6-17-2014 Yesterday I started the 10 Day Green Smoothie program by JJ Smith. I drank a green smoothie at breakfast (about 7:30 am) and then I was STARVING by 9:30 am!! I drank another one and still found myself pretty hungry by 12 noon so I ate a few pieces of seasoned chicken with ranch dressing. I made a big pot of cabbage last night and drank another smoothie and I felt great. This morning I drank 2 green smoothies and ate two boiled eggs and I am full. I weighed myself and I was 273.5 so I know I can lose at least 10 pounds by next Monday. I am also going to buy the 10 minute exercise tapes by Tony Horton. I think I can do that. Wish me LUCK! 5/12/14 I got off track with the 5 Day Miracle Diet and I am back at 270. However the day after I weighed myself below, I really wasn't 256. I was really 266 so I actually lost 8 pounds instead of 17 pounds, but 8 pounds is still great in a week. I am still proud of myself. I walked outside today for 20 minutes ALONE because I needed time to think. I feel pretty good. I just need to get negative people out of my life and ignore the ones that I can't get out of my life. 4/28/14 WOW!!! One week ago today I started the 5 Day Miracle Diet and I am down 17 pounds!! I was 274 lb.s last Monday and this morning I weighed 256 lbs. That is TRULY AMAZING. I am not sure if my scale was wrong or what, but I will take it!! I pray that this is the correct weight. I will weigh myself on Amy's scale tomorrow morning and really verify. 4/21/14 Yesterday I had a KODAK moment. I remembered the 5 Day Miracle Diet and decided that I would get back on that program. Today was my first day and I feel so much better already! I pray to God that I can remember this great feeling and continue to keep doing this. My blood sugar was just 118 before I even took my pills. After eating today, it was 139 so I might take my just one Metformin until tonight. I feel GREAT!! 12/16/12 Today I began eating Whole Foods which was suggested by the "Forks to Knives" documentary that I looked at last night. I am going to go vegetarian and not eat any meat, chicken or fish. I am also going to not eat dairy, refined sugars, bleached flour or oils. I love some of the quotes from that documentary. "Let Food Be Thy Medicine" - Hipocrates, "Animal Products & Dairy = Fat and Sick", "He that takes medicine and neglects diet, wastes the time of his doctor.", "1/4 if what you eat keeps you alive, 3/4 of what you eat keeps your doctor alive." "Eat yourself into good health and a long healthy life." Eating a plant-based diet reversed heart disease, makes your pancreas work better for lower blood sugar and decreases the risk of cancer. I weighed 271 pounds today and my measurements today are listed below. Neck - 15 Arm - 15 Chest - 53.5 Waist - 50.5 Stomach - 51 Hips - 51 Thigh - 30 Calf - 17.25 I will take pictures of myself (entire body and close up on my face and compare it each week or every two weeks. 2Determined =========================================

My Program:
New Program effective since September 19, 2010 since joining Weight Watchers.
1. Eat within my daily points.
2 Get as many of the Healthy Guideline Power Foods during the beginning of my day to feel fuller.
3. If I am full and can't eat all of my points by the end of the day (40), do eat as much as I can.
4. Strength training every other day (Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday's work best for me) at the Corporate building or on my new Total Gym at home.
5. Do my cardio (at least 20 - 30 minutes) on the SAME DAY so that I can get it out of the way for the week.
6. Continue to drink water throughout the day.
