We had a wonderful, relaxing weekend camping at one of our favorite state parks in Arkansas this weekend.
It wasn't as challenging as I thought it might be because we carried everything that we needed to continue on our journey to being healthy and lose weight. We took our bathroom scales and our food scales as our program instructs us to do.
We had Red Snapper for lunch on Saturday, steak for dinner on Saturday night, hamburger steaks for lunch on Sunday and grilled shrimp tonight now that we are back home.
I lost an additional 1.6 lbs and Roger lost an additional 2 lbs. while we were gone.
We spend a lot of time talking about how much we would normally be eating while we were gone. It was like we would give ourselves permission to "pigout" the entire time that we were gone camping. We also did that anytime that we went on any type of trip. We would buy junk that I normally wouldn't buy at home.
I was very proud of myself and Roger because we watch so much TV last night and never ate anything except an apple apiece and drank tea. We never suffered from the feeling of being stuffed and miserable. We bought the first season of Prison Break and now we are hooked...we watched so many episodes until 1:30 AM this morning and my hubby stayed awake the entire time. LOL!
My current weight is 167.8 with a total weight loss of 15.8 lbs in 17 full days. My goal is to lose 17 lbs. in 20 days. This will be halfway for me on the number of days that I can go in this round and halfway of the total number of pounds that I am allowed to lose in this round.
This is the first time that I am giving the actual website to the weight loss center that I am going through in Missouri. Yes, I live in Arkansas and they do a great job for those us who are not local and can't come in to their facility to weight, get measured or for the support. I can call them anytime that I need them and they call me twice a week for my weight, answer any questions that I have and encourage me. Everyone in their office is either currently on the program or has already been through the entire program. This is what sold me on them. They aren't skinny ladies just telling you what someone told them to tell you. They speak with you from their own personal experiences and they follow the proper protocol of Dr. Simeon's research.
Check it out: Pounds And Inches Away Look at the before and after pictures...Stacey is the lady who is standing in one leg of her jeans. This is my support person. She has lost 120 lbs. since August 2008. She knows from personal experience how this works.
All that I ask you is...if you are interested in this program and want to try it. Please contact me personally so that I can give you the phone number to the location that I use...there are two. I love Stacey and she is awesome. Also, if you sign up...please tell them that I referred you. Email me and I will give you my full name since I have chosen not to put it on my blog.
