Yeah, I know it’s Sunday but I’ve been contemplating resurrecting “Fat Flinging Friday‘s” for several days now and I think I’m finally going to do it.  If you haven’t been around long enough to remember what the heck I’m even talking about, then you can read my very first Fat Flinging Friday post HERE.  My weight loss efforts went awry when I got pregnant, but now that I’m “retired” from baby making, I need to get back on track.

The basic deal is this: I SUCK at losing weight.  So this is my accountability deal of sorts.  I’ll have a linky each week and if you feel so inclined, then you can add your accountability posts to it.  I figure this way, we can all support each other, give each other ideas on what actually works and what doesn’t.  Your weight loss post is yours, I only want to support each other.

I’m not really ready to share how much I actually weigh.  It’s incredibly embarrassing.  But I need to lose 100 pounds.  I’ve set myself a few goals and I am using them as my motivation.  Here they are:

  1. Be able to walk (and finish) 60 miles in November for the 3-Day for the Cure.
  2. Hike to the bottom of the Grand Canyon…and hike back out next summer.
  3. Ride the rollercoaster’s with my boys next time we visit a theme park.

Diet

I recently bought the Hungry Girl: Recipes and Survival Strategies for Guilt-Free Eating in the Real World cookbook and have tried a a few of her recipes.  So far, they are really good!  For breakfast I fix myself a protein shake and then lunch and dinner is something out of my Hungry Girl cookbook.

Exercise

If you’ve been reading, then you know I’m a walking fool.  This week (so far) I’ve logged 8 miles of walking.  I plan to do my 1st 8 mile walk tomorrow morning.  Wish me luck!  I think I am going to bust out my EA Sports Active for Wii and start getting some more exercise like that.

Have you posted about your weight loss this week?  Goals, dreams, great diet recipes?  Anything you got, feel free to share it!
