New Month.....New Motivation

Oh my, it's July alread, my weight has gone up and down the last few months depending on how motivated I am. Well I'm motivated now.....

Why you asked? I just heard that my oldest sister had an abdominal banding procedure done to help her lose weight.

We don't have health insurance so that procedure is definitely out of the question for me.....not to mention that I'm an avowed coward and the thought of surgery makes me break out in a cold sweat.

She did it because she is turning 60 and wants to enjoy her grandchildren.

We are expecting our first grandchild in January and it is a great motivator. ( So new month, new diet, new eating restrictions and exercise.)

This one is Michael Thurmond's 6 week body make-over. According to the book I have the worst metabolism so consequently have the worst tasting meal plan. The good news is that you can eat 6 meals a day. The bad news is that it taste so bad you don't want to eat at all!

So here's the dilemma: Do I do this program knowing that it works and just adjust to turkey, chicken and fish 6 times a day with so many greens that I should be a rabbit? Or do I rebell and continue doing things that I know are self-destructive .

When you write it out like this there doesn't seem to be a choice . So pass the chicken and greens please. I'm sure I can do without salt, fat, sugar, and taste.

Mood: (You don't want to know!)

I just told my hubby lastnight that I'm doing the same thing. I don't know if you remember that I did the mini-makeover and tend to drop an easy 7 in 7 days. It's hard. Really hard. If you want to partner up, please let me know - it goes easier with a partner. We're probably on the same menu!

Well, you go girl! I am starting back on ww today! Starting the day before the 4th for me will be hard, but I am committed now! There are a couple more on my blogroll that are starting now also, so we are all in this together.
I would love to have Michael Thurmond as a personal trainer. haven't really checked out his book tho! Good luck! I will keep checking on you!
