Is This Liquid Weight Loss Diet Working?

I’m used to failing. Is this liquid weight loss diet actually working? I’m down 10 pounds now – and I’m not sure what’s going on. Honestly – I rarely have seen success in my quest to lose weight. I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop….like, surprise – you gained 6 pounds overnight or something….

The scale keeps moving down though- not up.

I’m excited because it’s keeping my mind in the right place. I know it’s about commitment, making changes, and staying strong. I just am not used to seeing the scale move.

When I started this liquid diet, weight loss was my goal. I just am not used to weight loss happening! I’m elated that I’ve lost my first 10 pounds, and feel hopeful and just so excited.

The goal is to have a plan. I used to going out to eat multiple times during the week, and that’s got to stop. I have “clean my plate” syndrome, and let’s face it – restaurant portions are huge. I don’t want to avoid restaurants totally, because I have to relearn to eat again, along with making better choices.

I had my first chance this week, and ordered a salad. I asked them not to put any ham or cheese on the salad, and I brought my own lite salad dressing with me. It still came out in a fried tortilla shell…. :\

I picked at my salad and only ate the cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, peppers, onions, turkey and hard boiled eggs. It was okay — I ate 1/3 of it, and knew to stop when I was satisfied – pushing it away from me when I reached that point. No need to feel “FULL” as in stuffed. I ate until I’d had enough to nourish me….

I did good. I even woke up to a drop on the scale. Now restaurants don’t have to scare me….

The other thing we’ll be doing is adding in new ways to spend time together. We’ll eat at home then go for a walk, instead of going out to eat as a way to hang out together.

One day at a time. One meal at a time. One pound at a time. Baby steps.

I have weighed in on my scale, the doctor’s scale and the little machine that does the body analysis thingee. Ha! All three weighed me differently. Either way, if I lose a pound, it will show up as a pound on all the scales. I’ll be using my home scale – since that’s the one I have access to on a regular basis.

For the record, my scale and the doctor’s scale were pretty darn close, so I’m okay with using mine.

For reference – I’m 5′5″ tall, and my hips are wide!

I’ve chosen to start a full liquid diet. I’m tired of hitting walls. I always end up so damn frustrated. It’s not like I haven’t tried 150 different programs or ways to lose weight. So here we go again…only this time it’s different.

I’m working with a doctor (family doctor and internist) and staying on a medically supervised plan. I’ll be taking B12 shots along with a handful of supplements. (NO! THey didn’t try to sell me a bunch…they told me what I should take and I went to the store and bought them)

It wasn’t a YOU MUST do this, it was – it would probably be a good idea if you also started taking a couple of other supplements. (Vit D, Multi-Vitamin, Fish Oil)

I’ll rant about my past experiences on and off I’m sure. While I am starting a full liquid diet, I have put in time and hard work in the past doing other things. I even put an entire YEAR in with a trainer and eating clean. My body would NOT let go of any weight…it was defeating, and I hit a wall.

I got depressed…all that hard work, the way everyone says it’s got to be done….and nothing.

I was denied for a gastric bypass due to malabsorption issues…so this is it folks. I’ve done it all, and no cigar. No losing weight…

I’m not one of those who loses and gains it back — I can never lose at all!!!!

For now it’s one day at a time, and I’m feeling hopeful and motivated again.

Here’s the plan Stan — 6 shakes a day…I can have a green salad if I want to eat or am hungry. I can add in 2 hard boiled eggs or 3 ounces of turkey. If I go out to eat (and order grilled chicken and veggies, or a salad, I omit 3 shakes)

Each shake has between 100-200 calories.

I WILL NOT be promoting one program. I don’t know enough about the others to say mine is better or worse. I’m on a liquid protein diet, much like a few of them out there….it is what it is. I’m not here to sell you on it, and I’m not here to say one program works and another doesn’t. I’m just here to stay inspired, and hopefully as I lose motivate somebody else who feels like they’ve hit a wall and aren’t sure what else is out there.

I’m starting a liquid protein diet and am planning on using this blog to keep track of my progress. I would like one central place to track my weight, inch loss – along with my feelings and other thoughts as I go.

I didn’t come to this decision lightly, and will explain how and why I’m here now….it will come out in bits and pieces. Either way, here I go.

My starting weight was marked as 257.

My highest weight was between 264 a few weeks back. I took a trip, and I almost couldn’t fasten my seatbelt on the airplane. I tried and tried, then finally I heard it…”click”…deep sigh, thankfully I didn’t have to ask for a seat belt extender. I would have been mortified…

At this point, I was about ready to buy one of my own for future flights, but decided enough was enough. I had the information – all I had to do was pick up the phone and call. I made the appointment, and here we are.
