Fat, tired and uninspired

I'm doing a five-day food cleanse followed by a six-week diet with Liz Vequist in an effort to start feeling fit, active and inspired. The cleanse starts on Monday, October 5, 2015.


I'm lighter now than I was when I was in high school. And certainly lighter than I was in college. In fact, I'm 40 pounds lighter than I was at my heaviest, but 20 pounds heavier than I was after my one successful bout with Weight Watchers.

I don't feel awesome. 

In fact, I feel fat, tired and uninspired most of the time.

I want to feel awesome. 

After a couple of health scares this year, I decided to get serious about slimming down. I'm losing at the rate of a pound a month using a combination of MyFitnessPal.com and a FitBit. A healthy rate of loss, but I'm filled with anxiety about gaining the weight back. This isn't great for me, my marriage, or my overall enjoyment of life. 

So, I'm trying something different, the six-week Slim, Fit and Sexy program offered by Liz Vequist, http://www.lizvequist.com. It starts with a five day whole foods cleanse on October 5. The "diet" program itself begins on October 22 and runs until December 10. 

In the spirit of keeping myself honest, I'll be blogging my progress here. Encouragement and giggles both welcome.
