Okay, so I completed my first full week on Alli and I have to say, I don’t know what all the fuss is about. I have yet to run to the bathroom or have an accident on myself. I’m just saying…

And to top it off…drumroll puhlease—I started the week off at 181 and managed to get down to 176.2. Now that’s what I am talking about. Look out 160, I’m coming back for ya!

I don’t know if it’s the Alli or me, but either way, I’ll take it.

I decided to give Alli a try because I need help and unfortunately Dr. Ian isn’t waiting for me at the drive thru window or the All-You-Can-Eat Everything But Salad Bar to keep me on track, lol. I have no idea if it will even work for me, but I am willing to give it a try.

I did eat sensibly, only going crazy on Friday night. Don’t ask me why but another craving crept up on me. To compensate, I took my ass hiking this morning and will still get up and go on Sunday. And yes—I am still on the tennis court daily. I want to play in this Memorial Day Weekend tournament.

Now I did get really weak this afternoon and almost—I said almost headed to someone’s drive thru. But I caught myself. I just thought about my progress this week and throwing it all away on some French Fries. Okay—some French Fries, a strawberry shake, and a turkey burger. That didn’t work so well so I ended up drinking coffee which kills my appetite instantaneously, lol.

I am super pissed that I gained 15 pounds back—but I am not embarrassed about it in the least. It’s a part of life, or at least my life. The trick is not to accept defeat. I’m like Jay-Z, I will not lose. Besides, I got too many haters to be sitting around hating on myself. And while I know for a fact that some of them are gloating over my 15 pound weight gain, watch the fuck out because it’s a temporary set back. I’ll be in that bikini this summer no doubt. Check for me. Oh—and hate on me some more. That’s exactly the motivation I need. It works better than Alli, an empty refrigerator, and coffee put together.

Alright so here’s to the coming week…let’s see if we can get even lower—or at least not go higher, lol.
