HC - Me!

Friday, June 17, 2011

Hey, guys, I'm sorry that I've been too busy to post anything other than these self-indulgent posts about my weight.

I've been getting my house ready to put up for sale but I know that in this market, it's not likely to sell for anywhere near what I want. And the fact that there are 12 houses on my street ALONE for sale is pretty discouraging so I'm leaning toward renting it instead. This will actually give me more time to do the things that I want in my parents house before I move in.

I had my "official weigh in and measure" this week. It's not quite on the full week since I have to go on Thursdays (to an office an hour away) and I actually started on a Sunday.

Ten days in, I've lost 10 pounds and 14 inches. Fourteen!! I know, I can't believe it, either. It's like I've found the magic pill and the weight is literally melting away.

I no longer have the desire to gnaw my arm off by late afternoon because my body has gotten used to eating at the reduced caloric amount. It's really allowed me to focus on how MUCH I was eating before. A trip to the drug store for paper towels ended up yeilding a candy bar or two and window shopping usually culminated in chinese takeout. All of which added up to big, fat Chrissy.

I was drinking at least two liters of Diet Coke which I've replaced with a gallon of water or unsweetened iced tea. My back pain has gone away and the cramping in my fingers has, too. Not sure if it was the Nutra Sweet or one of the other yummy chemicals in the Diet Coke that was bothering me.

In a nutshell, I feel great! I sleep well and I wake up well rested. I can't wait to see how I feel when I lose more. It's already made such a difference in my attitude that I heard this song going through my head as I was walking in today.

I'm getting my mojo back!!


  1. First of all: I seriously don't think you ever was a big fat Chrissy (I remember a year or 2 ago, maybe 3? you posted a picture of your legs. I was so jealous of those legs, they were NOT the legs of a woman I'd call big and fat).

    And second of all: I don't have anything more to say but felt obliged in following up with something because I started with first of all in the first of all places...

    Have a great Sunday sweet Chrissy!

  2. And third of all, What Nikki said in her "First of all".

    But then again if you are confortable with the program and feeling the way you are now then I am tickled pink for you.

    Good to hear you are sleeping well too.

    Good luck and have a wonderful day.

  3. Wow, that's fantastic! Oh, that's about the improvement of your health. About your house, good luck, whichever you decide on, selling or renting.


C'mon, you know you want to say it..
