THE SECRET TO WEIGHT LOSS


All this time, I've been banging my head against the wall, searching for the motivation, failing and picking myself up to try again. Little did I know that all I had to do to find the sticktoitiveness to succeed at my diet/fitness plan was to go to the doctor. Dr. Black Cloud supplied with me with all the information necessary to conclude that I need to get fit and thin PDQ or I should start shopping for burial plots, I can look forward to an old age filled with disease and medications that will surely bankrupt me. Bottom line: Dr. Black Cloud is scaring me skinny.


Since making the executive decision to switch my family to the South Beach Diet way of eating, I've lost 14 lbs. My Harley Stud has also lost 14 lbs. This really ticks me off I'm so happy for him and God bless his soul, he isn't even trying and is losing the same amount by default. You see, he eats whatever I cook in the evening and eats however he pleases throughout the day. However, I don't buy sugary, high fat treats so he has less to choose from. Still and all, he is matching me pound for pound without any apparent effort and THAT IS SO UNFAIR isn't it wonderful!


I still have a long way to go but I am optimistic that I can still lose another 10 lbs before my class reunion. I still won't be at goal but finally moving in the right direction works just fine for me.


Daughter #1 has made it her personal mission to kill me, drag me all over the county to walk 4 miles a day, oversee my food and beverage consumption like the food nazi that she is (She hates that name) get me in better shape before my reunion.


Oh and by the way, wii wii no longer shouts to the heavens in his way too cheerful fashion that I'm OBESE! I am now just merely OVERWEIGHT. The damn wii wii still makes the announcement with a smile on his face and isn't even aware that he's in danger of having a remote shoved up his arse. Stupid wii wii!





Hugs,

Smart Mouth Broad

I saw the title to this post and went "OMG - SMB did it! She's going to tell me how to do it!!"

Think Dr. Black Cloud would be willing to LIE to me to scare me thin?

Pastor Sharon said...

Congratulations!!!!!

Jeanette said...

Well done! And I knew there was a reason I never had the desire to Wii Wii!

deadenders said...

Yeah your Harley Stud just stopped by and is looking pretty fit these days.

Should I start calling him your Harley Stud? It's kinda catchy.

The Peach Tart said...

Way to go. This seems to be working for you. It does suck that our guys always seem to lose weight faster without much effort.

Linda said...

The ELPH switched to diet soda and lost 14 pounds. Bastard. The more I cut back on the vino the meaner I get, so he can have me fat, happy & sloppy drunk or thin, mean & sober. What'll it be ELPH?

Michel said...

Honestly! I heart the south beach! It is pretty much the only thing that worked for me previously - but then i found bread again.

Dammitt!!

CONGRATS TO YOU! You will lose as much as you want on that.

otin said...

I went to the doctor one time and he wrote obese, on my chart, so I went and lost 70 lbs, sometimes it just takes one thing to get the ball rolling!

only a movie said...

That is so wonderful, SMB! Wooooot! Can't wait to see all the photos & hear the stories from the reunion.

Other half and I started working on losing weight last year. He was more successful. Typical men, I guess.

JeanMac said...

Gosh, men seem to lose weight so easily - not fair. But, good luck and congrats - to me, even a single pound is worth celebrating - with a brownie!

Mrs.C said...

ROFL Your sense of humor cracks me up! Congrats on the weight loss! I need to lose some too. :(

Kathy said...

Stupid men. They lose weight without even trying. Poofers.

I think that South Beach would work for me if I weren't such a carb addict. I'll admit it. I'm an addict.

Congratulations!!! Woohoo!!

tut-tut said...

It's all a journey, is it not? just without free snacks and beverages.

smiles4u said...

Way to go!!! It is so unfair how guys can lose weight the way they do and we can work our asses off and it comes off so damn slow. Keep up the great work!

darsden said...

Congratulations that is awesome...

I have not done my wii work out thing for that reason.. I have sensitive feelings... and I don't want a damn game making me cry! LOL

Oz Girl said...

You've done an awesome job of sticking to it, else you wouldn't have lost 14 lbs. Everyone has days where you fall down. It happens. You just pick yourself back up the next day and behave again.

Honestly, just working at this hospital the last 4 weeks and working with so many Medicare patients has scared me back into my eat right, workout regimen. I don't want to be old and have as many health problems as some of these people do. It's quite sad. And scary to a person like me, who's now in midlife and no longer a spring chicken.

Congrats on your weight loss so far, and a high five to the weight you're going to lose before your reunion! I know you just have to feel better for eating right, and that's worth it's weight in gold right there. :)

Comedy Goddess said...

Congratulations, that's great news! check out: livestrong.com
It's a fun way to keep track of what you eat, and your exercise activity too.

Erin P said...

OMG you've got it right, SMB! I had a similar "come to Jesus" with my doctor when my BP turned up high on a recent visit, (it's in my blog) and after at least 8 months of "pissing around," I finally lost 2 lbs. Not 14--for which I heartily congratulate you--but it's at least a tiny step in the right direction!!! Keep it up; GO, SMB!

Reader Wil said...

Congratulations! You DID IT!! I am sure you always look gorgeous with or without diet!
Thanks for your visit. You asked about the houseboats. I think they were leaking in the end and therefore used for a small house.

Gaston Studio said...

Don't you just hate it that some men can eat pretty much what they want and still lose weight?

Congratulations Smart Mouth, you're well on your way to meet your goal!

Optimistic Pessimist said...

i avoid the wii for that very reason when i gain weight...it can be so nasty!

Tony Letts said...

Don't let wii wii off - shove that remote right in there. Carry on like this and we won't be able to see you sideways

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Wow...that is so great! I am sincere! I had to darn near die to lost 12 pounds. I still need a toilet mounted on a wagon so I can pull it behind me...and yet I put on 5 pounds as soon as I put a spoon in my mouth. Ok..it was not the greatest food in the world..but I'm being careful and ..no more weight loss. Of course I am hardly moving...so that might be the reason.
You are doing SO good. You CAN lose that other ten pounds...I've got faith in you!! Can we see a pic when you are through. I thought you looked good the way you were...but you young things like to be really slim and svelt.
So...a picture? :)

Joanna Jenkins said...

Glad to see you've lost weight but NOT your sense of humor :-) Keep up the good work!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Way to go! Before you know it, those last 10 lbs will be gone! :)

Midlife Jobhunter said...

Congrats on the dedication. You go, girl. I don't know why, but when my husband and I did the SBD, he lost much more than me. Just doesn't seem fair. Overweight instead of obese? I think you have inspired me.

Keep going.

Snappy Finger said...

Oh poor me.. sitting here with a computer desk chair stuck to my ass. Can I Wii Wii while sitting down? No? CRAP!

FYI.. The Blue Ridge Gal blog has changed and is now officially knows as Snappy Finger... stop over and sit a spell, or better yet, bring that damn Wii over here.

My Wii Mii and I aren't on speaking terms anymore. Stupid Wii!!

Mrs. K said...

I haven't gotten on the wii yet- but I've lost some- i don't have th emuffin top anymore when wearing my undies...now listen- i started taking bee pollen...it helps. it's natural, expensive but worth it. kills cravings, not your appetite- and specially sweet cravings...and if you eat something 'fatty' or too 'carby'? out it goes...

wii wii - LOVE IT
Going to steal it!

Congrats on the weight loss.
Keep up the good work.
