Take Shape For Life (TSFL) Day #1


My starting weight is 190


Day 1 was easier than I thought it was going to be. It was a snap!


On the inside I was nervous and concerned that I might starve to death and the janitor would find my body famished and laying in withered heap on the floor next to my desk. But it wasn’t that way at all!


I survived! And I enjoyed the day, even with out my half a pot of coffee before noon. I did miss my caffeine rush. The plan only allows for 3 cup of a caffeine drink per day. I kept rereading this part thinking it was 3 cups max per “hour” but nope, it just didn’t – so I conformed.


What surprised me the most was, I liked the food. The strawberry shake was so good for a moment I toyed with the idea of having two! At that point in my day I thought to myself “I’m definitely not a food snob, no wonder I got fat”! I just pain like food and the TSFL give’s convenience diet food a whole new meaning in my dictionary. Which is great!


The problem I did encounter was the oatmeal volcano that erupted in my office microwave.  I did just as the directions said… add 5 oz of water, stir, and microwave for 1 ½ to 2 minutes on high.  The problem is I stepped away, and when I got back the oat meal was spewing, the bowl was way too small, and not deep enough. I made a mess with the oatmeal.  Now for the good news on the oatmeal, what was left was delicious! My only regret was I short changed myself not paying attention and half of it boiled out. All in all if that was the bad part…I figured I was set to go.


So far I’ve tried the oatmeal volcano, the wild rice and chicken soup, their crunchy chewy bars – yum, the strawberry shake which is a must do over it was so good, and the chocolate pudding was just ok not great.


I’m very curious to see how I do on the scale in the morning.
