Diet Challenge...Day One....


OKIE DOKIE...here we go, this is MY day one of Sharons diet challenge, I just could not get into it last week, too much stressful stuff going on....so this is my first day, I have chosen the Atkins Diet to begin with, then I will switch over to maybe South Beach or WW, once I have lost about 30 pounds, my total goal is to lose 45 pounds, and I would like 20 of them gone by my birthday, is that too much too ask????????? I will not publish my starting weight, these pictures are worth a 1000 words, and lots of humiliation.......BUT since our fearless diet guru was not too proud to put her pictures for the whole bloggy world to see, I am not too proud to put MY A&* on the line.......maybe this will be the final wake up call to stay the course!!!!! Thanks Sharon for hosting this monumental event in the bloggysphere, I needed a kick in my large barge!!!!!! This is the most I have ever weighed, and the sad thing is, I had lost a good bit of it a couple years ago, only to put it right back on!!!!!

BUTT, pardon the pun, Iam determined to win this time,and hubby is joining me to so I will have accountibilty. Also my BFF Glenni and I are starting a walking program....yes yes, I know she lives on the opposite coast, but where theres a will theres a way!!!!! Heres to us Glenni, we did it before, we will do it again!!!!!

Yesterday we met some friends in the city of Orange,we had a nice lunch and enjoyed the amazing 85 degree weather we are having here in So Cal.....I have the last bread I will be having for a long time!

I got this awesome box of yumminess from my oldest, who also lives in Ct.....the purse is too die for...she also sent me a yummy soft throw, which I have already been using...thanks Honey, I love you and miss you so much!!!!

In keeping with one of Tammys new years resolutions, I too want to read more. They say it protects your mind against alzhiemers and demetia......so, I too will be reading more, and here are 2 that I cannot wait to dive into. Wally Lamb is one of my favs, I cant wait to read this new one.......and this book about polygomy looks intriging, although Im sure its not as fun a BIG LOVE, which by the way will be back SOON!!!!!!!!
I have a brutal cold that seems to be going around...its kicking my butt right now, lets just hope it keeps my appetite at bay,lol.........Good Luck everyone, and I will be posting every Monday with the number of pounds I have lost, we are all in this together!!!!!!!!!!

awww - i love your cheekiness, lol! and even with your friend on the opposite coast, it's always nice to have someone you're doing it with... there's a friendly competition with the deployed wives for the walk to iraq and back program which gets me going everyday - friendly competition and companionship is good for exercise!

Can't wait to hear how your first week went next week.

Good luck on the weight loss! Such a joy isn't it? Why does food have to taste so good????? Maybe if all we needed was in a food pill and we would never be hungry, we could all be thin :o)

Judy said...

OMG...I saw that picture and almost fell off my chair laughing!! Good for you Sprinkle!

LOLOLOL, did joe take the photos??
we live 2793 miles apart, if we each walked 2 miles each per day it would take us 698 days to meet somewhere in the middle of the country, ha! lets just start walking and see how close we can get? (ps love the message from tropical storm jenessa and the walk to iraq and back.) i'll bet it i knew there'd be a good doughnut shop at the midway point i'd walk faster lololol. pss, the hair looks good!!!!
