Ahhh... gotta lose weight quick!

I'm in mega weight loss mode right now - gotta shed those extra holiday pounds asap! I'm going to Jamaica with Bryan's company in a week. I'm so excited that after Bryan's 6 years at the company, they're finally allowing some spouses on the annual Caribbean trip, but I wish it could've been at least a little further away from the holidays!
My weight has generally been in the same 10 lb(ish) range since I reached my adult height in middle school. I've only been out of my comfortable range a few brief times since then, and to do that, I need to be doing something seriously wrong (as in either practically not eating, or eating bucketloads of crap for an extended period of time). Well guess what - I've been eating bucketloads of crap for an extended period (like way too many of these and too much of this, for example). I am really not happy about my weight right now, and really not ready for a bathing suit next week!

We all know that crash diets and quick weight loss tricks are not good for you. We should take it slow and do it the healthy way. Knowing that, do you still try to lose weight quickly sometimes?? In the past I've done the Lemonade Diet/Master Cleanse, the 3-day Military Diet (this one is actually a reasonable amount of food), and the the eat as little as I possibly can diet. After having some weird vision issues due to low blood sugar when not eating enough, I've decided that eating next to nothing is no longer an option.

My go-to method now is to simply track what I eat. I love the MyNetDiary app - it's free and it makes tracking your food intake super simple. While I admit that I'm currently eating fewer calories than I should (tsk tsk), I'm definitely not starving myself and I know how much I'm eating. When we get back from the trip, I plan to bump up my calorie goal a bit but continue using it as a healthy weight loss method to lose the rest of those extra pounds.

Do you have any methods for quick weight loss? Or do you just stick to eating healthy and working out? What are your favorite health/fitness apps?


  1. Hi there! New follower from the blog hop. Hope you come check out my blog too!

  2. I've noticed when I need to shed a few pounds I hop on the elliptical, play some dance games on the wii and the one thing that helps me more than anything is portion control and water. I still eat my fav foods just in much,much smaller portions and do a little calorie counting. Have fun on your trip!!

    1. Hi Cortney! I've been on the elliptical more too - and agree portion control is huge! That's part of what I like about that app- it forces me to measure out the proper portion size - like measuring out 3/4 cup of pasta instead of dumping in half a box or so, lol. Thanks for stopping by!!

  3. I savor, result in I found just what I used to be looking for.
    You have ended my 4 day long hunt! God Bless you man.
    Have a great day. Bye
