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.

My favorite part of Thanksgiving is the part where my kids whine about being hungry all day and then only eat mashed potatoes.

@WeberWriting Absolutely. It takes a bit of time and juggling but it is 100% doable. Just have to ignore the sanctimommies of the world
Don't feel bad for tossing frozen chicken strips in the oven and calling it dinner. Don't even feel bad if you don't turn them over. holdinholden.com/2016/05/shit…
To the piece of crap who broke into my car over the weekend- You think you found nothing of value to steal, but you actually took with you the nasty head cold my family has been passing around in that very vehicle for the past week. Enjoy, scumbag! xoxo, Germ Infested SUV
