One Woman's Quest to Lose Large and Ugly Panties Forever

I've had it with ugly panties that fit my large behind. I'm done with clothes for the large woman that just aren't as cute as the clothes I wore twenty years ago. I'm tired of wheezing as I go up the stairs. I've got sixty pounds to lose - because on my fiftieth birthday, I'm dancing naked in a thong, dammit. And it better be pretty. This little bunny rabbit is hopping me down the weight loss lane. I wanted a pair of big granny panties rolling through the grass, but I'm not computer savvy.

Afraid to Eat?

I know, I know. Me? Afraid to eat? The end of the injection portion of this diet is fast approaching. You are supposed to eat the 500 cal per day diet for two more days after the shots end, and then start increasing your calories, but still omit carbs. I have grown very accustomed to this low calorie thing. I have started to notice this weird fear that if I eat more calories, I will gain weight again.

I recognize that this is foolish.

I recognize that if I eat 800 to 1000 calories a day at 191 pounds, I am not going to gain weight.

But I still worry. Really worry.

This limited calorie thing has actually worked for me, like nothing else has. But it's unreal and has to be temporary. I liked being in a Food Monastery. Brother George Foreman and I have grown close during this six week period.

Well, there's nothing for it but to pull up these Big White Granny Panties like a Big Cowgirl and deal.

I still think it's kind of funny that I am loathe to eat more food - given that I used to (metaphorically speaking) roll around naked in a pile of pizza and hamburgers at the drop of a hat.

Weird weird weird.


  1. You are doing awesome and I know that you'll take this next step and rule it too. Good luck. Take care and God Bless!!!

  2. You can do this. I am new to your blog, but will come back and check in. Michele

  3. Hello. Keep it Up!!! I am so still trying to work on the mindless eating thing. I have to pay attention to everything I but in my mouth.

  4. Daughter and I are on P3, and yesterday I was a bit freaked out about morning weigh in cause I figured i'd probably gained 2 pounds from eating so much...well, this morning, down almost 2 pounds and believe me, we ATE..but, we ate healthy and stayed away from crap and that's just what the secret is...stay away from crap. You're going to do fine! oh, and coconut oil and cream are the bomb! Made coconut creme "bark" with nuts and dried was super awesome, felt like I was cheating. Crazy how going through p2 changes your mindset about foods. (In a good way).


Thanks for your posts. It's the best reinforcement I can have that has no calories.
