In December, the wonderful people at DietBet contacted me and asked me if I would compete against several other mom bloggers for the chance at a $5,000 pot, and we would have to give some of that money to charity. I also want to mention that since January when I made this lifestyle change, I have not had one single pain that I was dealing with last year.
For the past few days, I have been learning about another lifestyle transformation program, and I am prayerfully considering trying it out and seeing how it works for me at getting those last 40 pounds off. If you have any questions or just want to talk about weight loss, I hope you’ll leave a comment on this post. It is difficult, but once you get in the habit, I find that it’s harder to keep myself from exercising or eating right.
Lindsey, I would just like to comment that the Skinny Caramel Macchiato creamer by International Delight is pretty good!! I am just wondering if you had headaches from the caffeine withdrawals initially and what you did for it. Today is also Weigh-in Wednesday thanks to Erin at She's a Big Star and Alex at Skinny Jean Pilgrimage.
I have been eating within my calories and eating clean for the last two days to make up for it and I got down to 228.9 today.
Before beginning any diet or exercise program, please speak with your primary care physician about what is right for you. I am an incredibly competitive person, and knowing that I could play for a charity like St. It’s been 6 months since I started that first DietBet challenge, and I am down 40 pounds.
My portions are small, yes, but this absolutely keeps me from getting hungry at all during the day. Sometimes I even get creative and mix several fruits in a blender with ice and little Truvia to sweeten it, and make a smoothie. Depending on how the program works for me, hopefully I will be sharing more about it with you all soon.


I write about my progress every Friday…it helps me stay accountable and not be so hard on myself! I’m currently trying to work on losing some of my pregnancy weight, it’s tough, but you give great inspiration!
I, too, am on a weight loss program and have lost some weight (diet and exercise only, no fads). I was on meds before and it helped me to lose a bunch of weight, but then I got pregnant again, and now i don’t have a doctor to help me, nor the money to pay for the prescription.
Since reading Angie’s story and using the few tips in this blog, I am officially down 10 pounds!! I skipped out on Monday and Tuesday, and I can't on Saturday (I am taking a group of kids to an acting festival on an all-day out of town field trip) so I am making up for laziness and being preemptive. Unfortunately, every person is different, and what may work for one may not work for another. Jude and have the opportunity to give them up to $5,000, well, let’s just say that I was all in. I hadn’t been on a scale in months, and I had no idea that it had gotten so out of control. I still eat exactly what my family eats, but I put my servings on a kid-sized plate instead of a large plate. After all, until January, the most exercise I got was going to the grocery store with all 6 kids. She is passionate about her life in Christ and wants to encourage other mothers in their own walk of faith. I know this is a tough battle, but day by day I am gaining the willpower to change my bad habits.
I lost 20 lbs a couple of years ago but have gained back some and want to get back down again. There was A LOT of cheating on the cleanse over the weekend that ended in me being pretty sick on Monday.


For whatever reason, reading her story gave me the extra “kick in the pants” to really do this! I will not even allow myself a sip of soda or Sweet Tea {another weakness!}, because I know it would take nothing for me to fall back into old habits.
But isn’t it worth it to give it up for a short time so that you can become the person that you want to be? I also increased my water intake to about 100ounces per day, so I don’t know if that helped wash out the toxins from the soda or what. I was once there with a prescribed appetite suppressant and know how great I felt and how great I looked.

The hardest part of this cleanse is having eating options so restricted and yet losing such a small amount.
Either way, I am just so thankful that I didn’t have the complications that I could have had.
I have made my Spiritual life and my relationship with Jesus my top priority, and I have benefited in so many ways because of it. I am sorry for the book, but you inspire me and that’s really what I need with some motivation.
My treadmill only goes up to 4 MPH, but I have literally walked my butt off the past 6 months.
