Oxford, Massachusetts,, United States
Hi, My name is Kimberly. I decided to blog about my journey to a healthy me. At present I am 50 yo, I weigh about 225 lb (edit...down to 185) I am 5' 10" tall; Re-married Mom of 2 wonderful "boys" (24& 25). I work as an executive assistant, have a fabulous Husband and life would be perfect if I could just learn to budget, get my bills paid and reduce my size by about 60 (edit: 20 more) lb!

Planned Interruption in Diet

so I am doing a planned interuption of my Protocol.
I want to enjoy Thanksgiving without going overboard but still being able to have a roll or a small dessert without gaining.
Also I was going to have to mix a new batch up to continue. So I figure this is the best time to do an interruption.
We will see how it goes. at the worst I will gain back a lb or 2, but life is too short to worry about every single oz.  I would rather have an extra pound to lose when I start and have fun with my family and eat my mom's pumpkin pie. :)

Dinner is all planned, Turkey (frozen solid) is purchased and sitting thawing slowly in the fridge.
Everything else is planned out and purchased. I had a great morning with my son, we went shopping at BJ's and got regular household food stuffs as well as Thanksgiving.
I baked all night for the Church bake sale. The house smells GREAT.
Put together a nice crockpot chicken dinner before leaving for Church this morning. now enjoying the fruits of my labor. chicken and veggies. YUM!
Happy SUNDAY to all.

Back on track. 198.5

Ok so for a few days I went up 2 lbs and then stalled.  I just stuck to plan. Didn't do an apple day or anything and it seems I am back down. so we move on from here.
Drinking at least 2 liters of water a day.
Today I made some strawberry gel.  (kind of like a calorie free jello)
I can't wait to try it tonight with dinner.

Today's plan:
Brkfst: coffee w/cinnamon, apple
Lunch: Salad (iceburg lettuce, tomatoes and red pepper) chicken -homemade dijon dressing
Dinner: Talapia, sauted spinach w/onion. Strawberry gel.

Weird. but no worries Planning on a great day!

Day 6 down another .5 for a total of 10.5

Woo Hoo! I am hoping to be at the end of P3 by Christmas. hopefull I will continue as well as I have been so far. if I can get to 185 I will be happy. Then one final round will get me to goal.
I mistakenly thought I could be to 170 on one round but that is pushing it. I don't want to set myself up for failure.
that would be almost 40 lbs in 35 days...not possible.

today's plan:
Brkfst: Apple and coffee
Lunch: Baby spinach salad w/ cherry tomatoes, and cucumbers. Grilled chicken
Dinner: Fish or Shrimp, sauted cabbage, onion and celery.  Baked Apple.

I'm back!!!

In July of this year I hurt my back, how I have no idea, but I couldn't stand or walk.
So I sort of neglected my blog. So sorry BLOG!
I did good at keeping the weight down while layed up. but once I got back up and didn't have to be waited on. I blew it.  I was back up over 200. at 5'10" it wasn't TOO noticable to anyone but me. but I felt I had failed myself. So starting this past weekend. I am back on track.
Starting Round 4 and hoping to be at goal by NYE and my 1 year anniversary with my DH.

After first loading days 209
Today's weight 103.5
