Just Weight!

So excited to get this started! I have three of us on board so far, to start this unusual journey of weight loss and self awareness. And is any of you would like to join us, please email me at <justweight4me@gmail.com>




Here is all the juicy details:

This program is for the faint hearted, the NON-calorie, carb and fat counters, and the "oops I forgot to stop at the gym....again" folks. There are a lot of us out there. And as much as I would love to say that I enjoy working out and find time, I can't. Or that I ALWAYS eat the healthiest foods and can just say no to more helpings of pizza, even when I am feeling low, I can't. But, as I giggle, I have a feeling of hope for my plump butt and slightly over hanging tummy. I have had tons of (skinny) people and doctors tell me to "just watch what you eat", as if it was that easy. Well, my idea is to take that bit of advice and apply it in a literal sense. Starting March 14th, 2011, I (and anyone who wants to join) will be taking snap shots of EVERYTHING I eat. From a handful of candy to full meals, it will be pictured and blogged. My hope in this process, I will SEE all the things I eat, especially the things that I don't even really know that I put in my mouth. Not only will I be able to see the quantity and quality of my intake, but I will have to stop and take pictures of it, causing me to either take multiple pics of more helpings or not take any more. I am also self conscious  and knowing that hundreds (or more) of my readers will see my bad eating habits and thus I will think twice before eating those "snacks". My journey will continue on until I succeed in "watching" what I eat and become a healthier me. I will also be logging beverages, and any exercise that I can get in, my weight through the process will also be logged. I am excited to begin my journey and hope you will be here to support me and maybe join in the fun.

If you would like more info on how we will be logging our journey, please email me at <justweight4me@gmail.com>. My accomplices in this will be given a "code" name and the privilege of deciding what they would like blogged about them, with the exception of the food pics, ALL of those have to be blogged. My blogger friends have the choice of either blogging their story on their blog OR mine OR both.

My week will be Sunday-Saturday, food pictures will be blogged every Sunday morning. So keep checking back and follow my progress (or lack of, lol) I also have a Facebook Fan page for you to follow along.

Hey! If we won, maybe I could expand our bathroom and have room for a scale. LOL (or perhaps that's not a good idea)

Wow...You sound so much like me. I want to lose weight so badly, yet it's difficult for me to stay away from junk food or that 2nd helping. I'm going to send you an email because I'm very interested in joining you :)

Just stopped in from Mommy D's. I am a new follower here.

I just sent you an email to get more info. This sounds great. Having to take pictures will probably show me how much more I eat then I think I do.

I love your blog! :D I didn't even know you had one and just stumbled across it.. And was like, hey, I know her! lol!

Jennifer said...

So once a week you are going to do a post with pictures of EVERYTHING you ate that week? That's going to be a lot of pictures, even if you try not to snack that much.

When I want to post a lot of pictures sometimes I make a collage at Picnik (just did this yesterday for my Mary's 18-month post). I'll be watching to see how this whole picture thing works for you because I know that when I log my food I do a better job not eating too much of it too!

Good luck!

come on over sometime and visit.
Staying on top of weight is tough. I struggle every day and I have had gastric bypass but I'm making sure that my tool that I was given continues to work for me, but its work keeping a journal to make sure you don't get off track, good luck,
