Pedometer for your mouth?

Is this the next new gadget to help us with weight loss?

Introducing a new product that is most often referred to as the Bite Counter.

In a nutshell it is worn as a watch (and functions as one too), it  works anywhere (with any food & beverage), has a time-stamped log of meal data that is downloadable and allows you to set custom alerts when you’ve reached your daily intake goal.

Most of them have a retro look, but you are able to put any wristband on it so you can jazz it up to match your style.

The price ranges I’ve seen are between $100 – $700.

In this day and age, where over 1/3 of the country is obese – anything that get’s people motivated to monitor their meals and food consumption to lose weight can’t hurt!  🙂

If anyone purchases one of these, I would love to hear your feedback on it.  Thanks in advance!


Happy Birthday to me…

What’s the best present I could give myself on my birthday morning, you ask?  A 2 lb weight loss, I say!  Yay!

After a very long, sleepless night and an alarm blaring many hours too soon for any human to be awake…all it took for me to snap out of it was 3 LED numbers on my scale that red 1-8-0!  I heard, “Happy Birthday to me”, literally come out of my mouth!  LOL!

So happy, yet still in a sleep-deprived state, I am making sure I take this moment in and give myself a pat on the back for how far I’ve already made it on my  journey.

What else could a girl want on her Birthday?!  😉

Food Poll!

And the winner is…CHOCOLATE with 66% of the vote!  I’m a cheese lover myself, but chocolate is definitely my #2!  Thanks for all the votes!

Another one bites the dust!

Hooray!  Another week – another pound (and 4 oz) down!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, slow and steady definitely wins the race!   And every week that I lose weight is my one step closer to the skinny jeans finish line!  I can’t wait!!!

Whomever created eDiets is my hero.  Affordable, healthy, tasty food with no counting calories…I think a statue should be erected in your honor!  LOL.  Seriously though, I’m making my goals with the help of eDiets and all my supporters out there.  Thank you and viva la eDiets!  🙂

What was in that Tequila?

I’m not sure if it was the Mexican Tequila or the spicy foods, but ever since I returned from Mexico – my metabolism has been in overdrive!  So, I decided to give myself an overall check to see where I stand since day 1 for inspiration, motivation, and confidence (which, by the way, is definitely starting to come back)!  Here we go!

Current Stats: 

Weight 183 lbs – Loss of 57 lbs since I went into labor.    Loss of 45 lbs since I returned home from the hospital.    And a loss of 35 lbs since I started the eDiets meal delivery plan!    eDiets ROCKS!  I lost an average of 1.52 lbs per week which is the healthiest way to go (and helps me keep it off for good, or until I have another baby…LOL).

BMI – Pre-Labor = 31.7 (Obese).  Home from hospital = 30.1 – (Obese).  Start of eDiets = 28.8 (Overweight). and NOW = 24.1 (NORMAL & HEALTHY)!!!

Dress Size –  Was 18, pushing 20 – NOW = 12, going on 10 (Loss of 4 dress sizes)!

Waist – Was 37.5″ – NOW = 31.5″  (Loss of 6″).

Hips – Was 46.5″ – NOW = 44.5″  (Loss of 2″ – was a loss of 2.75″ back in mid-April – seems to fluctuate randomly?! – may have to look into this one).

Bust – Was 41″ – NOW = 39″ (Loss of 2″ and down 2 bra sizes).

I’ve finally gotten to that stage where I look in the mirror and I’m HAPPY with how I look and it makes me feel amazing inside.  My routine is to get up in the morning, pee, and hop on that scale.  If it’s good (which seems to be the trend lately)…that feeling of accomplishment and continued success keeps me going all day long!  (Just ask my co-workers) 😉  I finally feel that my goals are within arms reach.  And what an INCREDIBLE feeling that is!

Well, my hubby and I leave tomorrow for an overnight trip to Universal Studios…hopefully all the walking around will compensate for the 6 hours in the car and the oh-so-healthy park food!  LOL

I’ll have updates early next week.  Have a great weekend everyone and Salud to Mexico!  😀
