A Plan of Action for a Healthier Me #sponsored

I have been inspired the last few months by a blogger who has written about her weight loss journey and as I read it I thought, "I'm not going to write about that!  Way too personal!"

But, as I read about Earl-Leigh's transformation I realized that maybe, I could do it, too.  Not write about it, but actually making the changes that are so necessary.

And then, something changed in me.  I've changed my eating habits, started a workout program, and I have gotten a few reviews that are weight loss oriented.  I even won a basket at auction for healthy living filled with work out stuff, beauty products, and a free month at a 30 minute, ladies gym.

Its as if the universe is saying - "Hey, fattie!  Get off the couch!"

So here I am, only two weeks in and sharing way more about my issues with weight than I have in the four years I have been blogging.

I am a binge eater.  I don't purge.  I have an appetite of pregnant me.  I am not pregnant.  Obesity runs in my family.  I can go years eating right and exercising, just to get comfortable, slack off, gain weight, and start the process all over again.  I am at the start of the process.

Since I am quickly approaching the big 4-0, this has to stick now.  I am making an action plan and sharing it with the world wide web.

Be accountable

I am doing this in three ways.  My husband who is my partner in this, fatsecret.com, and posting this action plan here on my blog.  I may check in from time to time but more likely it will be on twitter or facebook but especially fatsecret.  That is where I log my food and now that I have my fabulous new scale, I keep track of my weight.


Plan my meals

I usually take my lunch to work but now they are healthier meals with lots of fruits, veggies and healthy snacks.

Drink more water

I have cut out soda from my diet which was surprisingly easy and trying yo drink more water than coffee.

Move, move, move

I have a job that keeps me on my ass but it does not have to be all day.  I need to get out of the office in addition to working out to my infomercial workout program every morning.


Control my appetite

I am hungry all. of. the. time.  When I saw an opportunity to review Skinny Burn - appetite suppressant supplement for women I figured I would have nothing to lose.  I was expecting for it to not work.  I really was, especially after I saw the low calorie challenge diet menu that is included.  Of course you would lose weight, you are eating nothing substantial.  I was getting hangry just reading it.  I knew I was not going to do the challenge.  I would stick to counting my calories and logging my food on fatsecret.

It has been a week now and I am not hungry, nor angry.  I have stayed under my calorie allotment and I am not hungry (that is worth mentioning several times).  Not hungry or angry.  Not to mention, the pills smell sort of nice.  They are big but no awful aftertaste I expect from these things.  The even smell like raspberries.


I have spend hundreds of dollars on doctors appointments and supplements over the last ten years trying to find something that will take my constant hunger away and I think I may have found it.

I won't make a claim that the weight I've lost using these are solely because I started taking Skinny Burn.  I have been counting calories and working out and, I am not hungry.  Not hungry!  They also did not make me jittery.  I am a coffee drinker, an all day coffee drinker, but I take two capsules first thing in the morning with a great big glass of water and have my first cup of about 9:00 AM.  No headache and no jitters, just blissfully not hungry.



How do you keep from being hungry or hangry?
