McFatty Monday Check-In

I was indeed, pleasantly surprised after last weeks 2 lb gain when the scales said down 6 lbs. So not only did I relose the 2 lbs (which I knew that last thursday), but lost an additional 4 lbs! I'm down a total of 25 pounds!

I'm so incredibly happy! Definately makes it worth dropping those pounds. This time, this time is different. I'm not following a diet plan or eating foods designed for dieting. In fact, I'm doing the opposite. I'm eating REAL foods. REAL BUTTER, HEAVY CREAM, PASTA, FRIED foods.

Blasphemous you say! Seriously. I think one of our problems in America is that we are so consumed with FAT FREE and Convenience we don't stop and look at the issues. We are filling our bodies with processed, engineered, chemical CRAP and our bodies don't know what to do with it.

So I said NO MORE. Plus that whole allergy thing forces me to eat natural foods so I know whats in them, and low and behold IT WORKS. I think I stumbled on to a breakthrough! So if you can't make it yourself using natural ingredients, don't eat it. Have I mentioned I cut out the caffiene because I cut out the coffee and soda? Yet even without exercising, I have MORE energy most of the time and feel LESS tired than I did before when I was a STarbucks JUNKIE! Coincedence? I think not.

I think my body can process these foods correctly and knows what to do with them, so it breaks them down and gives me fuel. Is it a tad more expensive, probably but the more I do, and experiment with recipes, the more I can trim the budget. I'm still working on this way of life, but I'm excited to continue and see where it goes. STay TUNED.

To answer Mrs. Blair's questions: (and honey, hang in there)
What are you most proud of with this journey? Is there anything you’ve done that you have never accomplished before, or been able to say?

I am most proud that I did this. BY myself. I am taking charge of my body. I don't think I've ever lost this much weight before, especially not this fast and on my own with honestly, VERY LITTLE effort.


  1. You've inspired me to go to the grocery store tonight and shop only around the edges of the store (well, except for that frozen crap my husband requires)!! I rely too much on the "pre-packaged/100 calorie" stuff just to keep track, and that stuff isn't even satisfying or good for you!!
    Congrats on the success, 25 lbs is AMAZING!! Truly a motivator!

  2. You are awesome. & I love you!

    I am also a FIRM believe in what you preach (although with Nutrisystem, it may not seem that way!). Although it's working, I cannot WAIT to get off it & be back to butter & sugar & natural foods.
