Summer Slimdawn week 5

Fifth Week down!!
Last week: 251.7 lbs
This week: 247.1 lbs

YEAH! Out of the 250’s.

I managed to lose more than the required 2 lbs this week.  I Lost 4.6lbs!

Like I said  last week, I did a detox, which was not 7 days but rather 5 days since we went away for the weekend.

First day was only fruit. Now don’t get me wrong, I like fruit, but it was hard to do that exclusively. I was surprised that I didn’t feel like I was starving though. Every day you can eat as much cabbage soup as you want. It’s actually very good and you can put in lots of different veggies, just stay away from starch filled ones like potatoes. And since I didn’t prepare for this I didn’t have soup on the first day.

Second day was only veggies. I really enjoyed a baked potato first thing in the morning (which I wrapped in foil and put in the crockpot the night before. It was perfect. Thank you Pinterest!)

Third day was fruit and veggies, but no bananas and no potatoes. Getting a little more difficult, but still didn’t feel like I was starving.

Fourth day, at first I loved the milk and banana idea, but like they predicted, I didn’t even eat the allowed 8 bananas. And of course, there’s the soup. I dreamt about food after this day.  I felt guilty while sleep ing because I kept thinking it was real and I was cheating on my diet.

Day 5 beef and tomatoes. And soup once again!!!

Days 6 and 7 were thankfully eliminated because we spent the weekend at a hotel. It was a spur of the moment decision, so I couldn’t do any planning. But that’s ok.

I had always thought I should try this detox, but in reality I don’t know how much it actually worked on detoxing me. Yes I did lose 4.6 lbs, but I’m not sure that at least half of that won’t be back on by nexrt weigh in.

I only got in 2 exercise sessions in this week. Once 45 minutes and once 60 minutes. A few walks, but nothing very intense. We went for a long walk yesterday and played volleyball with the kids this morning, and although it was quite cold out, I worked up quite a sweat.

And for this week, Rochelle has given us a challenge I don’t know if I even want to succeed at! It’s VEGETARIAN WEEK!

I love beef!!! And I don’t like fish! But my family likes fish, so they will be happy! OK, Rochelle, I’m gonna try! But I’ll tell you now, it’s gonna be from Monday to Saturday, because we are planning on hosting a Barbeque on Sunday. But even that will be amazing!

Oh, and here are the pic’s. I put last months pic’s up again. Can you see a difference?

Have a great week!

  1. Ok, Ok - you can have your BBQ, but only if you try really hard this week to embrace the vegetarian diet - LOL! I will be posting some recipes this week if you need ideas.
    You are really doing great - what an AWESOME loss this week! I know you detoxed but still, 4.6 lbs. is impressive!!
    Hope you have a great week this week. I;ll be curious to hear what veggie-based dishes you try!

  2. Hey Casey. You can see a difference in your side view. In just one month I can see that. You are doing great. Do you think you could send me your detox information (when you have a moment or two). I need to kick start this all over again and I need a fast and a detox to get going again.
    You really are doing awesome. Keep it up.
    I wish you the very best with the no meat this week. It's going to be hard but possible.
    Take care and God Bless!!
