Day 85 of 120

Weigh in day! I'm out of the teens. Forever.  It's been a good week and I am looking forward to another good week.  The plan I am on is going well.  I am eager to see how my body responds to week 2 of this new plan. 

I've received several questions about this plan.  Be assured that I am meeting my nutritional requirements and am not starving myself.  Feeling hungry and starving yourself are very different.  I've been full or stuffed WAY more times in my life than I've been hungry.  Stuffing your stomach beyond capacity certainly sounds more dangerous than a few tummy hunger grumbles. 

I also do not feel weak, fatigued or tired. I don't feel that I am doing anything extreme or dangerous. 

Granted, the point of me doing this is to lose weight but it is also satisfying a curiosity for me.  This actually isn't a dieting method that I have not previously believed in. I also didn't know much about it. I've been doing some research and finding out about it and learning more about nutrition.  I'm curious what it is going to do and how my body will react during this time and what will happen after.  Again, it's not dangerous, I'm fine.

Is this the best way to diet?  Who cares. It's healthy and it's working. 


  1. Whoa, wonderful loss. Keep going! I still likely won't do phase 6, as I like the foods I'm eating and am never ever ever hungry and have lots of energy--so, I like this plan. 2 to 3 pounds a week...I can live with that. FIVE would be great...but I don't like being hungry. STILL...whatever it is, it works and you're happy with it, so go, Debbi, go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. GREAT!!! I knew you could do it, I know you will keep doing it. It'll be great to see what next week brings.
    Take care Debbi. You go girl!!

  3. That's great!!! I bought a book on Sunday called "Never Say Diet" by Chantel Hobbs. She has lost about 200 lbs and she talks about changing our minds and how we look at food before we try to change our bodies. I am still reading her story part of the book and haven't gotten to the diet part yet. But what she says makes sense. She is a christian and a mom of 4. You may enjoy it, she talks about cutting back on carbs and eating more fruit and veggies, lean meats. I bought it at a discount christian book store.

  4. I can be such a blonde sometimes!! The reason I think you would enjoy it is because she talks about being a little hungry and that it leads to fat loss.

  5. WOW!! You are doing great! Thats right...if its working and you are happy with it then thats all that matters. I recently went back on Medifast to get the last 20 lbs off. It worked when I did it last year and I kept the weight off. So after struggling on my own I figured why not go back and get the rest of the weight off.

    I am so happy foryou!


  6. Debbie, you are so close to being out of the 200s! Wow, girl, I'm so proud of you! I have two questions--will you ever be able to share your dieting strategy (I'm just so curious what you're doing) and what happened to the top of your left foot? It looks like you burned it!
