JW Diet Day 4

Day 3 was perfect and Day 4 until dinner. Sushi, fruit, crackers/cottage cheese, grilled cheese sammie and ice cream bar. A little overboard but I’m not worried. Exercised as well.


MY LIFE IS MY OWN! When will I stop comparing my successes to others? I need to move on from the why do people not like me scenarios I play out in my head.


JW Diet Day 2

I’m pretty hungry but what is surprising is that it is manageable. I need to cut down on the late nights. The tea and pills are giving me some insomnia but I know I need sleep. Dinner was delicious and I can’t wait to eat my lunch. I’m making myself wait until 12:30 on the dot. Practicing even small amounts of willpower is good for me.

I will be getting home late today but I still will have plenty of time to exercise. Then I plan to clean, cook and finish this damn paper (thorn in my side). I’m almost out of Spring Semester. I really want to get out of school asap. I’m a little nervous that my advisor even tomorrow will be under-attended. I hope that everything works out OK. But hey, one day at a time. What can I control? Things that go in my mouth and exercising and taking the time to study. Everything else will work itself out.

JW Diet Day 1

I bought Jackie Warner’s diet book even though I’m not sure if her strategy is solid. It’s called Lose 10 Pounds in 10 days. The first 10 days is a 950 cal diet and then the next is like 1200 and then 1500 for a total of 30 days.

Weight loss is always hard for me but I have to remember that I can’t just give up. I need to keep trying as many time as I possibly can. Something will work. I can’t just lay there and take it.

So I started this diet. I plan to do 10 days and then a cheat day (sushi!) and then the next 10 days. I really just want to make it through 10 days. I can’t worry about the rest of my life, just one day at a time.

The food part is actually really delicious. I loved everything but the tasteless oatmeal in the morning. I even added cinnamon. But lunch and dinner were fabulous. I am so hungry and it is only 6:30pm. I need to make it 5 more hours. Hopefully I get to bed early and I WILL NOT EAT ANYTHING ELSE!

The exercise made me really tired and dizzy but I would guess that it was because I’ve sat on my butt for months since my last exercise. I ate oatmeal 30min before exercise. So it wasn’t hunger. I have to tell you. 400 reps of jumping rope really tire you out.

I’m actually really looking forward to this. I would really like to get in shape more before my mother comes in August.
