Well I jumped on the scale and 311 is what it told me. I expected much worse so Im feeling good. Eating isnt to bad so far. I discovered that I like black coffee again. I used to drink it black when i was at sea but I had forgotten how much I liked it. Back to work tomorrow, we will see how it goes.

Hello all!

I am starting a weight loss journey and I need LJ buddies. I want to lose weight the healthy way, diet and exercise, no gimmicks or quickies.

I am getting married next July and want to look and feel good, and I have an engagement session coming up on September 14 and I want to look and feel great.

I used to be a RELIGIOUS LJ'er, and started a blog here (this username) back in 2010 and lost around 50 pounds. Now I have gained some back and I need the motivation and support that I had back then. I need a community to make me strong again (and healthy, of course).

Feel free to friend me if you are in the same boat.

Hi everyone, I'm just trying to get the word out about this up-and-coming company called Isagenix.

What do you imagine your dream job as? Making six figures or more? Working with an amazing network of people who are incredibly inspiring and supportive? Improving your health and general lifestyle? What if I told you, you could achieve all that while only working part-time, at home, from around the world?

I'm sure some of you reading this are thinking, "Oh. I've heard of things like this before. It's all fake." No. It's not. Believe me or not, I'm actually a very, extremely NORMAL person. Just a college student trying to stay alive on her own. But when I was introduced to this opportunity, I just thought…how could I not? What do I have to lose? The worst that can possibly result from this is that I spend some money on nutrients that help my body. Shit, if that's the WORST, I thought, sign me up.

The products that this company produces are totally, 100% natural. And they not only do great things for your body, they make you FEEL younger, more vibrant, ready to take on anything. Whether you want to achieve incredible, healthy weight loss, attain more lean muscle, age more gracefully, or just generally feel better about your body, there is a product from Isagenix for you.

(Just to make things clear, I'm not trying to sell anyone a product. I don't have excess product that I need to sell by a certain time. I'm just trying to promote this great opportunity to improve the lives of others as it has improved mine.)

If anyone is interested or has any questions (or critique), feel free to message me.

I don't moan often, but when I was on a diet and that weight suddenly stopped coming off, I was frustrated. I pondered over what I was doing wrong or if my body was falling apart and... Read More

A lot of people think that you have to take big steps to achieve weight loss success. They believe that the big weight loss stories are all about men and women who have made a huge change to their diet or start working out every single day of the week. Obviously, these... Read More

So, I started the Military Diet. I hear you can lose up to 10 pounds in 3 days. Day one had its ups and downs.

I started out fine. A couple hours after the first meal I was starving. Lunch only satisfied me for a couple hours. I felt weak and tired until dinner. Dinner filled me up pretty good. I felt a few hunger pangs before bed, but was able to sleep. My stomach just stopped growling after a while. I think my stomach shrunk. That makes things easier.

I can definitely tell that I lost all the water weight I was carrying around on the first day.

This morning I am on day 2. I am doing fine so far. I can already tell it won't be as bad as yesterday.

Update on day 2 tomorrow morning.

Starting weight:
156 lbs.
Height 5ft 3in
I hope to lose at least 30 pounds all together. If I can at least lose 5 pounds from this, I will be happy. Actually, any weight loss from this will be great since I haven't lost a pound before this despite my efforts.

Somehow I allowed myself to gain 30 pounds over the last year. Stress, depression and a sit-down job will do it. It has been hard to maintain a diet when I have to feed a family. My husband has to have his junk food. He works a job where he is on his feet and exercising all day.

I am doing it this time.
If you've never tried this method before, all you need is a good, quality juicer and some fresh fruits and vegetables and you're good to go. Juicing can help you lose and maintain your ideal weight in a variety of ways. One of its greatest benefits is cleansing and detoxification. Through this process, your body flushes out toxins which increase the risk of diseases and infections. Toxins are stored in fat, so when they are removed from your system, you lose fat cells as well. Another way that juicing helps you lose weight is by boosting your energy, so that you can perform fat-burning exercises.
There are literally thousands of juicer recipes out there, but... Read More
