TimJ's 5 bite challenge

Post  TimJ on Fri Mar 15, 2013 6:35 am

I have been getting ready for the 5bite challenge on facebook...beginning 3/17/13. I just got back from the beach Monday. I gained 5 pounds in 3 days. Started dropping portion sizes and have dropped close to 4 pounds. I am currently at 163.5 pounds. I am 5 foot 11 inches tall. I plan to do the facebook challenge and document it here in order to be more accountable. Please join me and let's try to be 100 percent 5 bites.

Thanks...So far just cutting portion sizes way down..161.4 pounds today. Getting ready to do 5 bites starting Sunday...sounds kinda drastic. Dropped 6 pounds in 4 days...just cutting down. 5 bites should really take the weight off.

Good job shelbyfoxx. I ate 2 slices of pizza yesterday and gained .3 pounds. I ate a small steak today. Tomorrow the 5 bite challenge starts on the facebook fivebite diet page. I am going to try to give this 100 percent. I am going to really focus and see how the diet does when you don't cheat...."That is the plan anyway...hahahaha." I have a lot of people watching me at work...some encouraging and some not. I hope this can keep me accountable. I am also graphing my weight and journaling to try to stay on plan. I hope we all get healthy and skinny! Smile

Thanks ElleBella. I put a little sticker in my diet journal that says "You Did It." I put one on each date that I follow the diet "perfectly." I look forward to the sticker. Kinda corny..but I am trying everything to stay on plan perfectly. I was 160 pounds today...the lowest I have been in a while. I ate 5 bites of an Arby's "roast beast" for lunch and for supper 5 bites of a hamburger. I had a couple of diet drinks...Dr.Lewis says the caffeine helps keep hunger away. Striving for a perfect 5 bite day. Very Happy

I have done a sticker chart before and it did help...I may try that again, too. You have to think of some kind of reward for your stickers besides the weight loss. Any ideas?

I think a good beach trip where you can relax in the sun at the pool and feel good about your shape and health sounds great. I will have to do better tomorrow. No sticker today. I had to get up too early with little sleep today. For my physical the Dr. took 4 tubes of blood. I made in thru lunch ok...but wound up eating junk for supper. A milkshake and chips and chocolate. Back on plan tomorrow. I fell off too easy...rainy, cold day-- oh well, I come up with too many excuses. I was 159.8 today....hope tomorrow doesn't show too much damage. Good luck fellow 5 biters.

Still staying in maintenance for now. I have been eating a lot more than 5 bites lately. I have been working twelve hours a day doing construction type work (company is temporarily shut down for maintenance.) The extra exercise is helping me. I was 159.6 this morning. Soon after the weather gets warmer and my doctor's appointments are over....I am going to 5 bite again. My B.M.I is slightly above 22. I am going to bring it down some more. Good luck 5 biters. Very Happy

I can't do this diet on antibiotics either. I was having a really great month until I got sick. I'm better now and ready to rock it!

Hi ElleBella, The challenge on facebook went very well. They have a good group of 5 biters....a lot of encouragement. I had to work 12 hours 4am to 4 pm this weekend which always messes up my diet. I tried to maintain but probably gained back some. I normally work 3:30 pm to 11:30 pm and this is easy for me to diet. I want to do a week of just snickers. To lose the weight, and to practice the discipline. I am still trying to work up to it. I hope you and the other 5 biters here are having a good day and are having a lot of success. I am going to the beach in a couple of weeks...time to get serious. I don't want to look too bad at the pool...hahaha.
4/17/13......167.7
4/18.........164.2
4/19…………..163.0
4/20…………..160.4
4/21………..……break
4/22……..….161.6
4/23……...160.5
4/24……...…159.4
4/25…...….158.6
4/26……….….156.8

I am going to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It is a great tourist spot...a lot to do and a lot to eat...hahahaha. I see that you are doing the low carb ElleBella. I have done that before and it worked great. I messed up the weekend and gained about 4 pounds. I went on 1 Snickers a day and now I am back to 156. I only had 1 Snickers today, green tea and water. I hope to see some new lows tomorrow. Good luck on the low carb. A guy who is a patient of Dr. Lewis just signed up on the facebook 5 bite diet blog yesterday. The group on facebook is staying pretty motivated. I may try 5 bite low carb later.....maybe low carb would be good for maintenance. I can't believe how fast I gained 4 pounds on the weekend.

Just an update....I am currently at 152.2 pounds. Still 5 biting but easy to cheat at night. I have been getting a lot of compliments about being skinny. I need to drop about 20 more pounds to be at BMI 18.5. Onward and downward.
