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.

Slippery Slope

Well, travelling this past weekend to sunny San Diego made it extremely difficult to stay on plan. I ate extremely well, but for SOMEONE NOT ON AN HCG DIET PLAN. The worst thing I did was eat a few chips and salsa. Had salads every meal. Ate eggs and fruit. No cheese to speak of. No sodas, no candy. Still put on 2.5 lbs from Friday morning until Tuesday morning.

I know what I need to do. And that is to not panic and say "oh fuck it, I'm sick of this" which of course, I am. If I am driving to San Francisco California and I make a wrong turn, and end up headed towards Beaver, Utah, this does not mean that I must inevitably drive all the way to Beaver. (Yes, Beaver, Utah is a real place). Instead, I make a U turn and get back on I 80 West, dammit.

So, the U turn is that there will be no more off program carbs for the next week. I have one more week or so of the shots left on this crazy diet. Then I'm on a more calorie plan that STILL limits carbs. That goes for between three to six weeks, depending what you read. During that period, I will be interested to see how my weight loss (or maintaining of the loss I have had) goes. What I do not want to do is lose hope or motivation.

So, back at the blog, confessing, confessing, confessing. I will be happy to leave this diet and move onto more normal healthy eating styles. But the days of mindless gnawing on stuff - those are long gone.

What does everyone else do when they make a slip? Both in your head and in your behavior?


  1. Hello. I have a bad habit of talking myself out of working out and talking myself into eating bad. I always say, tomorrow I will do the right thing and then eat anything I want the rest of the day. I don't know why I do that. BUT, feeling good about things the last couple of weeks. Don't lose hope and keep up the motivation!!

  2. I usually just let it go. It's in the past and I'll get over it, make better choices tomorrow. It's really helped me get through some tough times, especially with tortilla chips...*drool*

  3. I just say oh well, and move forward. Don't really beat myself up over it, there's no point. I'd rather focus on making plans on how to not slip again, like planning better meals, snacks, etc. That is more productive.

  4. I punch myself out, cower in a corner, get in a fetal position and cry my eyes out...and then tell myself to get over it...ok, ignore everything up to "tell myself to get over it". I have fubared on this program too..big time with that cookie fling a couple of weeks ago, but I survived and it's all good. Since we have "blogging" now I feel as though I can confess to everyone in general and no one in particular and that helps. Today was a rough day for me mentally..2nd day no hcg (not hungry, just waaaaaay grumpy) and not looking forward to tomorrrow, but this too shall're going to do great. Sounds like you made good choices mostly so 2 pounds is probably water, stress, travel "weight" soon to be gone.

  5. Haha, I LOVED your driving analogy. Gotta remember that one :-)


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