Sunday weigh-in #13

Last week I was 151.8 so I'm happy with the results this week:

And next week I'd like to kiss the 150's goodbye!

Friday dinner eats!

Jennifer, do you use skin makeup? I am asking because I see you have wonderfully clear skin, and since I am envious of those who do not suffer from acne, I wanted to ask what practices/beauty products you use on a daily basis.

In addition, it's wonderful to see how eating a wide variety of food not only allows you to lose weight, but to also experiment with ingredients you normally wouldn't think about using. Does your husband eat the same food as you do?

I agree. Look at your poll results, Jen.

Also, are you ever going to finish the money series?

I discovered this amazing and inspiring health/weight loss documentary, "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead," that you might enjoy.

synopsis: Overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe was at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. With doctors and conventional medicine unable to help, Joe traded in junk food and hit the road with a juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for 60 days. Across 3,000 miles Joe had one goal in mind: To get off his pills and achieve a balanced lifestyle.

I can't believe it, but after watching that inspiring documentary twice ("Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead"), I've decided to give it a go for at least 10 days. I don't need to lose the weight, but the feeling better and healthier part is definitely something I need to aim for. As is my goal of finally entering and finishing one of those mini-triathlons.

Hey John from Dajeon, are you spam?

John from Dajeon comments on my site regularly. He's not a spammer.

Thanks Amanda!

I check out the link and it was legit but his his blog link doesn't take me anywhere.

Sorry John for Dajeon. How are you doing on your 10 days>

John from Dajeon said...

Yeah, I'm not spam. And it was pretty rough at first, not eating (chewing) anything is harder than I imagined it would be. Also, I am a little underweight for my height, so I have to drink more of these micronutrient fruit and vegetable juices than I would have normally eaten convetionally each day instead.

I never imagined that I would ever try something like this, but watching others in the documentary really spoke to me as I have a brother who really needs to do something about his weight before it's too late. Hopefully, watching me at least try this for ten days (and maybe even longer) will get him to do the same. Anyway, it seems to have alreay helped a little bit with my blood pressure (guess, not eating any salt at all for the last few days helps with that).

Sorry the link didn't work, but the film is called "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" by Joe Cross. The extended trailer on Youtube explains the film the best.

I am really hoping that if my brother tries it, maybe he can get off some of the medication that he uses like Joe and Phil did in the film.

Hey John, I just watched the video. It was great! Especially the comic parts. I can't believe I have never seen it before.

"I went 4 years one time only eating on Monday, Wednesday, Friday" WHAT?

Sometimes I feel that there is a lot of resistance with eating healthy from people who I surround myself with. It's come so common place to eat shitty food that if you choose to eat differently they you're an outcast or some vegan hippie. No I'm not turning vegan I just prefer to have some vegetables with my meal instead of deep fried french fries all the time. And I have NOTHING against people who choose to eat this way. But I don't like feeling pressured to eat that way either.

Please make sure you keep me updated on your progress. I'll get off my soap box now.

I come from a big family of meat eaters, so when I turned vegetarian at 18, I almost gave everybody a heart attack. Everybody told me I was going to get sick, get too weak, etc.
I've been a vegetarian for 14 years now and I'm healthier than ever!
You have to learn to either ignore others or tell them directly that they're not allowed to interfere. Leaving with your family probably doesn't help.
Have you considered moving out and maybe renting a small apartment (since you're not ready to buy)? Some time alone with hubby and a chance to build your own life, on your own, without so many people around.

ugh, I meant to say "living" (not "leaving") with your family. Sorry!

You're right anonymous when you talk about living with my family. And there are certainly A LOT of things that I appreciate about being able to do so but 'food preferences' are not one of them. Oh well, I have to take the bad with the good! SUCH IS LIFE!!!!!

AND don't worry about the 'living/ leaving'......have you noticed all the spelling/ grammar errors on my blog? (p.s. don't answer that!) hehe

Thanks for sharing everyone!
