Day 19-Over 50 and Weight Loss Diary-RESTING HEART RATE DOWN ALMOST 15 OR MORE POINTS!!

Almost another full pound GONE- POOF!
Lowest weight since starting 19 days ago AND I SURVIVED THE HOLIDAY FOOD BINGE!

(No shame in this game ^^)


The countdown to year 53 of my life begins… same age as JLo, but not yet as fit. I am still super pleased with my progress!!

Between my L’BRI skincare and this weight loss program I WILL BE A HOT MAMA BY MY 53RD BIRTHDAY IN FEBRUARY! The weight (knock wood) is just melting off.

NOW FOR THE BEST PART (insert drumroll)…

MY RESTING HEART RATE IS 65!! That is down from over 70 (and 78 a month prior)!! I suffer from tachycardia, high blood pressure, and a host of autoimmune issues and blood clotting issues.
Staying alive is my ultimate goal.

I am noticing a huge decline in belly fat on this diet, even though I haven’t yet done more than rebounding for exercise.

Cravings simply DO NOT EXIST. I eat too often for hunger. This is like magic- the easiest diet I’ve ever been on!

Day 18-Over 50 and Weight Loss Diary-DOWN ANOTHER POUND!!

Woke up another pound gone… I have never, ever NOT gained weight during the holiday season! I.LOVE.THIS.PROGRAM.

I will be 53 in February and I am SO happy in my own skin now, thanks to L’BRI.
I marvel over how I am able to eat so much and so often and still drop weight.
Yes, I use the rebounder and fitbit… no, I haven’t yet done my yoga nor weights- I still have to add those in, but enjoying the peace and quiet of the holiday season.

DAY 17- the day after Xmas Aftermath

What happens at Xmas stays at Xmas, but I didn’t successfully keep to plan. I ended up sick as a result and today is the day of reckoning and relaxation and self-forgiveness.

I have to be gentle with myself and move forward positively.

Spent the day enjoying the aftermath of the holiday and just chilling with fam. Maisie sang the Sorting Hat song from the Harry Potter audiobooks.

My house currently looks like Harry Potter threw up in it. The kiddo is OBSESSED. I am doing a surprise redecorating of her bedroom. Bought almost everything on here today (from Pottery Barn’s site).

Her bedroom is not as big as this in the little house, so we will do what we can… At my other house, this would be doable, but it’s currently being used as an office by family members staying there and working remotely. I like this little house so much. It’s so cozy.

Tonight’s lean and green consisted of sous vide grass-fed sirloin, veggies, and eggplant rollatini leftovers from Xmas eve at R’s parents.

Over 50 and Weight Loss Diary DayΒ 14- 2 WEEK BEFORE/AFTER PICS and Weight Loss Totals!

HIT THE 2 WEEK MARK WITH A BIG DROP IN WEIGHT! I am over the moon.

The starting weight from the week before was 179.



If I use the weight from the week before I began the diet (because I was terrified to step on the scale on the first day), I’ve lost 9 lbs in 2 weeks!!!

It was been sooo easy. I am looking forward to continuing to lose weight, despite the challenges of the holiday season. I *WILL* lose the pandemic and baby weight finally and for good. Honestly, this is the easiest diet I’ve ever tried.

If you are interested in trying this, I will give you my referral to my coach for a health assessment.

Now for my embarrassing before/afters:

plus lupus and other autoimmune issues, plus whatever else…

Over 50 and Weight Loss Diary DayΒ 13- Holiday Shopping Diet Snafus

I forgot to pack my fuelings when I went to finish some last minute shopping and screwed up my entire day- but it was fine by the next day (though I was freaking out worried on day 13). We went to Costco and I brought home a rotisserie chicken. I sat while the others had their Costco hot dogs, I really wasn’t hungry.

Hot dog day at Costco is always a favorite. 1.50 for the entire thing, who could pass that up? (I did)

Missing the 4th fueling made me RAVENOUS when I arrived home, though.

I will NEVER, EVER FORGET TO PACK MY MEALS WHEN I LEAVE THE HOUSE AGAIN!

OK, NOW FOR MY STATS OF THE DAY:

Over 50 and Weight Loss Diary DayΒ 12- Lupus/Autoimmune Flare Less Today

When I woke up I felt like crud today, too. Headache in front of the head, but less severe than yesterday. General lethargy (again, less than yesterday). I will do a covid swab today. I have the home tests on my shelf. I just need the energy to get to the shelf. I am not usually prone to headaches or migraines.

I do notice a tickle in my throat, no other cold symptoms. I snore, so scratchy throats in the morning aren’t a bit deal.

I’ve been pushing through with rebounding and steps, but just the minimum to keep the aches and pains away. It also helps my breathing immensely. My body pain is the only thing that has gone away so far, which leads me to continue to believe that this was just an immune system freakout. I have covid long hauler stuff on top of it, so who knows?

UPDATES:

As the day wore on, my symptoms went away and my swab was NEGATIVE!

I had a lot of work to catch up on, so my workouts suffered, but I still got my steps in. I am pretty happy with this diet so far… so much so that I will be probably leaving my coach’s link (when I can find it) on this blog from now on, apparently I get some sort of referral credits. I am not quite sure how that works yet.

Dinner was an easy chicken pho style soup with Miracle Noodles and herbs and avocado as garnish.
Sometimes a proper soup is all a body needs when you’re feeling off-kilter.

OK, NOW FOR MY STATS OF THE DAY:
