Skinny Kari's Blog – Adventures in Fat Loss and Beyond

{February 4, 2010}   Week 5 Update – The Post of Shame

Shame, Shame, Shame on me!

My Daily Diet

First of all, its WAYYY past Monday.  Which is when I weigh in and take measurement and it is also the day I am supposed to update this blog for your viewing pleasure.  Second of all, it was yet another week of binging out on fast food.  Pizza three times this week (Thanks Linda for leaving those boxes of pepperoni in my fridge), Hot dogs and burgers.  Not to mention the celebratory mimosas at brunch on Sunday and… well… whatever!  Lets face it I blew it. So much so that I haven’t wanted to write this blog.   What kind of roll model am I anyway?  How am I to show you how great my Bios Life Slim is if all I do is eat junk food and neglect to work out?  yeah. I know. Not cool.

Now that you’ve gotten the full effect of my confession I’d like to lay down the results of the week.

I weighed in at 141. Thats down a whole pound and a half which I think has GOT to be a fluke.  My chest measurement went back up 1/2 an inch to 31.5 and my bust and hips are both down 1/2 and inch to 38 and 38.25 respectively. Everything else is the same.

Not bad considering.  If this had been PRE Bios Life Slim I’m pretty sure I’d be up 3 pounds.

Here are my goals for this week – and even though I’m half way through the week already, I’m not going to let you in on my progress with them just yet.

1. Drink More water

2. Eat more vegetables


4. Get some exercize. (at least 3 days worth)

On a far more positive note, I did start a walking group which is totally exciting me.  its designed to get us all out there on the town moving around and making new friends.  This is in support of my 2010 intention to take better care of myself and to spend more time on relationships and less time on work. Our first group walk is scheduled for Sunday February 7 at 9am.  The meeting place is Auditorium shores by Zach Scott Theatre.  Please join us.  Let me know if you’re coming so we don’t leave without you.

Alrighty…thats all I’ve got for now! Sorry for the boring post.  I promise to be more interesting in future posts.

No worries, when you have a bad week, just start fresh and don’t dwell on it! Have fun with your walking group!!!

Hey K, some thoughts which came up:

1. In this culture are many forces which compel us to beat up on ourselves. Our weight and efforts to change it are two potent areas in which this happens. While a part of you is intent on change likely another part is resisting the change. Cut both of yourselves some slack and you will be surprised by what happens… 🙂

2. Turn on the radio and dance for 5m. Do that three times a day every day. Congratulations, you’ve just had some very good for you and fun exercise. 🙂

Looking forward to the walk Sunday morning!


Linda says:

You look beautiful!! sorry about the pizza 😦 ..


Its ok Linda, It was nice of you to buy it all then leave it here. I didn’t HAVE to eat it. I can’t wait to be done baking so we can hang out. Miss you. Much Love. xoxox

Wellcome to the real world. It’s easy to think and talk about the program it’s a lot harder to walk the walk. To own up to falling off and getting back up takes BIG CAJONES and allows you to be human, that’s what I love most about you……my human I’ll be rooting for you and hopefully walking with you on Sundays.

Ingrid says:

Sounds to me like you still have the determination that you started with. We all slip, just keep picking yourself up. Damn pizza! Glad to hear about the walking group… if I had one I know I would be much more motivated to get out there every time.
