Hey, guys! It’s moi- Allie! The birthday girl! That’s right- today was the fresh start of a new year for me and the beginning of the Fresh Start program at my high school. We were tested today by the staff of Sarah Bush so that they could discover our BMIs, cholesterol levels, height, and weight. Although getting my finger pricked wasn’t exactly on my to-do list for my birthday, I can’t wait for the Fresh Start to get into full swing at MHS!
In other news, today was a pretty eventful birthday! I got a flat ...

Hey, guys! It’s me- Allie! I’m here in my room, and it’s almost 11 (who knew this English project would require this much work?!) but I’m taking a break from this exciting homework to tell you about some awesome highlights of this week!
So I discovered this delicious flax oatmeal that I’ve eaten for breakfast every morning this week, and all I can say is WOW! It’s 160 calories, reasonably priced, and comes in all kinds of delish flavors! My personal favorite is apples and cinnamon, but peaches and cream is also AMAZING. I ...

Day 88, 89
For the last two days I have stayed on the program. I met all the requirements. Today I weighed in and had a low weight loss, but a total of 42.2 pounds in 13 weeks. I have noticed that one week I will lose two to three pounds and the next week .2 pounds. I am still very happy with my progress.
As I was writing this, I reached for a drink and noticed my underarms flopping to and fro. Do you think I can buy a foundation garment for my upper arms? I made it ...

In four days, my 13-week core program will be complete. Time has flown by very fast. I believe I am going to continue on the no-decision plan for just a bit longer. "No decision" means I will continue on the shakes. It is weird but I look at food and don't feel the pull that I have in the past. Food smells also don't get to me the way they did.
I attended my family reunion today and got caught up on the happenings. I took my cereal and enjoyed the conversation. It is always fun ...
