So, I've been seeing Allans name pop up on all the weight loss blogs. I've visited his site but there are just so many blogs, and so little time to read them all regularly. Anyways, I decided to check it out and he's starting Phase 3 of his challenge Tuesday, December 7th. It sounds intriguing.
What I like is that he's blunt and completely honest. More importantly - He's Right. If we are serious about losing weight, we don't need to be coddled. We don't need to hear about all the fat free brownies that we can eat and how we "dont' have to deprive ourselves." I've spent the last 30 years not being deprived of food so I think it's time for a little deprivation, right? 30 years of stuffing myself and not going hungry. So if it takes me going a bit hungry for awhile, so be it.
I've had this blog for 6 months. I've done nothing with it. I've made some stupid comments like "Well, at least I haven't gained weight". While, yes, I suppose it IS good I haven't gained, it still is stupid. I obviously care more about what goes in my mouth than what I look like, or how I feel. I care more about eating than living. I'm killing myself with this junk.
If anyone is interested in joining, you need to do it soon, it stars on December 7th, you can enter until Monday, December 6th. Here is the best post I could find with the rules.
I don't have a good track record with these challenges. This is 3 weeks. What's the worst that can happen? I continue the stupidity and don't lose weight. Or. I can stay determined and do it. I can choose life, not food.
