I don't even want to talk about how far off the wagon I've fallen.
I fell off the wagon, then started eating it.

At least I have lost 20lbs this year...maybe by coachella I can lose another 20 lol
I've lost 30 lbs over the last year and then gained back 10 since Thanksgiving. Back on the program, but my Dad's rum cake is murdering the wagon.
I've lost 34 lb. I'm basically where I want to be fat loss wise, now I am trying to put on some muscle.
Currently removing imaginary spider webs from my face. I stopped smoking on Wednesday and have already gained 4 pounds. Honey baked ham sells this bean soup that you add the bone into. I boned my bowl of soup 3 times last night.
Overall motivation is the enjoyment of the polo fields. No huffing and puffing missing sets because I’m out of shape.
2 oz blended whiskey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
1/2 slice lemon
Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
Here you go:
- Hit the gym one hour a day four-to-five days a week (35 minutes of weight training/muscle toning, 15 minutes of cardio, 10 minutes for walking around and waiting for equipment)
- Lower sodium intake (less than 1,200mg/day will reduce water retention and "the bloat")
- Reduce dairy (switch to almond milk and reduce cheese intake)
- Limit bread and sweets (maybe one sandwich or piece of cake or cookie per week)
- Switch to organic raw sugar in teas and coffee (anything "white" has been bleached or processed and those Sweet N Lows are much worse for you and your diet and health in the long run)
Start one month before Coachella
- Hit the gym six-to-seven days a week (make this part of your daily schedule, just like eating, going to work, taking kids to school ...)
- Lower sodium intake to less than 1,000mg/day (those last stubborn pounds will melt away)
- Give up all dairy, including cheese
- Give up bread, cakes and cookies (for four weeks, come on, man, you can do it!)
Start one week before Coachella
- All the above, plus no fruit or juice or soda (diet or otherwise)
- You also may want to take a diuretic-a-day three days prior to your adventure ...
If you do this, you will be a rockin' hardbody at Coachella, no matter your age.
I wish I could afford the gym!! But I love walking everywhere
Don't mean to brag, but I've maintained a 29"/30" waist my whole adult life b/c of the above regimen. Every single person I know over 30 has carb face or just plain ballooned out. I've just recently given up dairy, and it's one of the best decisions I've made healthwise.
Shitballs. I barely ate anything this month and I gained 5 or so pounds. I also had the worst headaches ever, and had my period twice (sorry, tmi for some, but girls know that when that happens, it's bad). I'm guessing it's stress and binging on snacks and barely any real meals thanks to school and money related stress. I slept horrible hours. Thank god I only drank on my birthday, or I else I'm sure I would have gained more.
My last paper will be done by Sunday. I can't wait to hit the gym again and pop in Jillian Michael's bitching face for a good boxing session twice a week. This sitting for hours and hours business is unacceptable!
My motivation? Definitely Coachella. I'll have finished school completely either that same week or two weeks later. I refuse to make it look like it has defeated me, by rounding me off with a spare tire and thunder thighs. I refuse. Coachella is my reward to myself every year for jumping through stupid hoops and making lemonade out of lemons throughout the year.
Looks like I'll be jumping a lot.
I like that regimen, kvnty. Sodium and fruit are my weak spots, since I don't eat sweets or wheat products. I practically lived on trailmix, popcorn, egg salads and jamba juices this month, and look where that shit got me.
Dude... Cheese & sodium are my weaknesses. I couldn't give less fucks about sweets, but that sodium will bloat anyone like a motherfucker! I've set my background to my phone as a picture from Coachella last year. I was in great shape & happy with my weight. THAT is my motivation.
Then eat cheese and sodium. It's as simple as calories in versus calories burned. If you eat nothing but cheese and sodium but still keep the 2000 calorie diet and burn off more you are still going to lose weight. Also the opposite is true if you eat nothing but fruits and veggies but eat 5000 calories of them a day and don't burn that much off you are going to gain weight. Now obviously I wouldn't recommend eating nothing but cheese and sodium but it still very much possible to lose weight and eat unhealthy foods at the same time.
Sodium naturally attracts water in your body. When you take in excess sodium, water you take in pulls water toward your cells. This increases the amount of fluid in your body, a condition known as water retention. Because water has weight, an increase in sodium intake can mean you gain extra pounds as well. You maintain this water because your body works to have a balance of salt to water in your body. As long as you have excess salts, you will continue to carry extra fluid to keep your blood at the same dilution. And water weight is heavier than fat weight. There's no faster way to gain inches around the waist than with high sodium diets.
So please stop flaunting your ignorance, especially at people who sincerely are trying to look their best.
You're all full of shit. Here's a full proof plan to lose weight:
Stop fucking eating. Just stop. Until your body makes it absolutely clear that you NEED to eat in order to fuel yourself, don't eat. Don't eat because you're bored. Don't eat because it tastes good. Don't even eat anything that tastes good because it defeats the purpose. Know what else is great when you're bored or want to feel good? Heroin. The only way to cure either of these problems is just to get it through your fucking head that you have to stop doing it.
Eat carbs. It doesn't matter. Just eat them when you have to eat, no other time. Eat salt. It's fine. Just do it only when you have to eat. But fuck sugar--sugar is pretty much the one thing that's absolutely no good for you whatsoever. Cut all sugar out of your diet and you'll lose at least 5 pounds a week, I don't care how much sodium you take in.
Also, I guarantee that kvnty is fat.
Notice: no denial.
are you as fat as Divine herself, or not quite as fat as that?
