Let me tell you, ‘Meal Replacement’ diets are not for the faint of heart. They are boring, unsatisfying and generally pretty miserable to continue on with for a prolonged period of time.
I chose the Special K diet because it worked pretty well after Holden, and why mess with a formula that works? Of course, I went super overboard with it and instead of just doing the 2 weeks to “lose 1 jeans size!” I continued it for months.
Old habits die hard, i’m on week… 3? Maybe 4. Honestly i’ve lost track of time.
Now, if the stupid diet did what it actually said and helped me drop a jeans size in 2 weeks i’d probably just stop eating it because Special K is disgusting (other than the yogurt kind, but that only come in tiny expensive boxes).. but somehow even with the meal replacements and exercising 5 days a week.. the weight just isn’t going anywhere.
Frustrating? Oh yeah.
I was out digging around in the garage and found my old notebook with my weekly measurements from the last go-round of dieting and exercising after Holden and in my evil mommy-pooch area alone, I have 4 inches to lose. Numerically, the number 4 isn’t all that big, but when it comes to INCHES of FAT to lose.. oh yeah, it’s a lot.
So am I going to stop the meal replacement? Probably not. I have an unhealthy guilt associated with food, and knowing how much weight and inches I have to lose makes me want to go totally diet crazy- but I won’t go completely overboard. I still love food, and dinner is my friend. Special K is becoming my arch enemy.. or at least my stomach’s arch enemy. Damn bran flakes.

@BrentWalshITM Your show in RVA is the first time considering taking one of my minis to a rock show and I figured you'd know better than any- safe for a 10 yr old or wait a few years? He loves y'all but I don't think he can handle a thrashing
My kids do this funny thing where they give me all kinds of attitude in the morning while forgetting I have access to their toothbrushes while they're at school.
