The "D" word

No, it's not profanity lite. It's my diet.

Back in April I started a non-diet diet in an effort to undo the effects of spending 20 years in the chubby girl suit. Instead of using fad diet books and appetite suppressants (like I used to do) I've been making some small changes in the way I eat and the way I live in order to make a better me.

I set a goal to lose about two pounds per week, using Celebrity Fit Club for inspiration along the way (Go Phil!). As of today, I've lost a total of 21 pounds. Believe me there was some celebrating when I reached the 20 pound mark. I think the WOOOOing woke up my rats this moring.

Of course, I still have some ways to go, but I'm really happy about the way my non-diet diet is going!


CONGRATULATIONS! I know how exciting every little bit off is. Now, would you mind giving me a kick in the @$$ to get me back on track!?!?!

Murf, I can give you a kick in the ass anytime you want. Just let me know what day is good for you.

Geeky, thanks!

Liz, Ewww. There is a reason I skipped that one... a good one. But if it works for you, it works. Glad to see you're down a size --not that you needed to be!

Monster, Me... Anorexic? HA! I'd need to be on the non-diet diet for another 10 years before that happens!

I like your approach btw

i'm on the non-diet diet as well and i've also dropped 20 lbs though over 7 months. it's been a really great way to do it because i don't have any guilt about what i eat and i feel so much better.
