Clean Eating Challenge

Losing weight… is a nightmare.

Then again – so was the number I saw on the scale this morning.

196.4

How in the hell have I let it get this bad?!

Now – before someone gets upset and offended – everyone has a number on the scale they are comfortable with and a number they try to stay under. That number is different for everyone. So, my personal disgust with 196.4 is that knowing my height, my build and how I feel… this is in no way healthy for ME.

My high number used to be 160… I am now 36.4 pounds over that and needless to say I feel like shit.

Understatement of the year.

healthy-living-scale

Ignoring the number for a second – I seriously feel horrible physically. Takes very little for me to be out of breath, I feel tired all the time, I am down to one pair of jeans that fit (barely) and I am starting to get aches, pains and sore from not being active. I feel like I’m 36 going on 80.

How has this happened?

Stress.

I am a stress eater and my life has been nothing less than stressful for the last three years. The extra 36.4 has been piled on in the last couple of years though – think I have hit my limit on the stress meter, which has lead to me just not caring or bothering to try.

Being honest with yourself sucks sometimes.

The last few days I have been throwing around the idea of “clean eating” – avoiding processed foods, added sugars, etc. and sticking to veggies, meats (chicken, fish, etc.) and other healthier, natural options while using protein shakes between meals (to hold of cravings, nibbling and hunger)… as well as being more active – even if its just taking a walk daily for 30 minutes to an hour.

Tomorrow is the day.

No – really.

Tomorrow – Monday, April 24, 2017 – It’s happening. The start of a 1-month challenge of clean eating and exercise. Let’s lose some weight together the old fashioned way!

Not only is it happening, I will be doing some videos to go along with the challenge. I will document my ups, downs, challenges and… hopefully… successes.

Not only do I want to be healthier on a whole – I have a wedding to get ready for in November – if you missed the news, my guy and I are getting hitched! Of all the things I have to get done in terms of planning the wedding… I can not tell you how much I DREAD trying on wedding dresses right now (hopefully a few months of hard work will change that)!

I finally have hit my “enough is enough” moment.

 

Anyone else care to join me? If so, what are your goals and motivations?

    Starting my day with a banana thrown in a vanilla Muscle Milk shake. Then a brisk 30 minute walk along the river, Have a GREAT day, everyone!

    After reading your post, I talked with my wife about this. She’s been disgusted with her weight. Some of it is baby weight she never lest when she gave birth to our beautiful son, but over time, it’s gotten worse. My wife (Chinese) wants me to tell you that she’s on board as well. If you spoke Mandarin, she’d tell you herself. 🙂 She’s 5 foot and 128 lbs. Her goal is 108 lbs. She started last week… been walking 30 minutes a day and has greatly modified her diet. Limiting the rice and noodles and eating smaller portions. Lots of vegetables and fruit too. She woke this morning and is 124 lbs. Four pounds in a week! 🙂

    Quite the catalyst! Have been putting this off for ages, saying tomorrow is the day – well let this REALLY be the day. At 210 let’s see what a month of a healthier lifestyle on the journey with Kris Williams can achieve. It will be quite the road trip!!

        Thanks for the heads up! It’s funny – all week I have been thinking about doing this. This morning i decided I’s start tomorrow for sure right after I made up my mind, this segment came up on the news about cleaning eating… a sign? perhaps. It was a trainer who was selling his clean eating cook book… thinking I’ll have a look for it out here.

          It’s weird what triggers people to change their lifestyle. Mine was when a little boy pointed at me and said “Mom, Look! That man is really fat!!”…..That’s when I started my weight loss journey. Thanks for doing this! Could be my incentive to lose the last few pounds.

    I too have hit my “how the hell did I get to be this big” weight. I too am a stress eater.
    I have a goal of getting to 190 by Christmas… that’s 40 pounds for me.

    For me, golden rule is, eat less during dinner time maybe 50-60%. No change for breakfast & lunch. I have been controlling certain carboh intakes (white rice, white bread), more veggies & soup. I have done this for more than 4 months, my weight has gone down to almost 10kgs! On top of that, yes, good old fashion jogging about 3 or 4 times a week, this sure helps a lot.

    While I don’t feel the need to lose any weight…I do need to eat better. I’ve done well over the last year with using fresh vegetables instead of canned. I’ve even started a garden, I only have tomatoes and green beans this year. Next year I would like to add potatoes and carrots. I don’t even buy spaghetti sauce anymore either…I make it. It’s not greasy and has zero preservatives. Additionally I do need to exercise, I would feel healthier….

  • Landon April 24, 2017 at 3:25 am Reply

    I’ve struggled with weight loss for years. I’ve tried to live a healthier life style but have fallen so many times. I quit smoking over 2 years ago and thought it was a good start. That was easy compared to weight loss and healthy living. I was diagnosed with diabetes a little over a year ago and the first meds had a bad side effect and the alternatives are just too damn expensive. I truly believe I can get my numbers and pounds down with diet and exercise. So I am in!! It is encouraging to see someone I respect with this much motivation who has also struggled. I think it will be very encouraging and cool having (in sort of a way) you and your fans as support and weight loss partners.

    Kris, if I may can I suggest you read the book Bright Line Eating. I know what you are thinking, no not another diet. Please read the book, it will explain the up and down weight and tell you how to, as you say “Eat Clean”. It is a life style change, not a diet. Google the meaning og Bright Line.
    My sister turned me on to it. She is looking better than I have seen her in 25 years. I have a trip to Thailand and when I get back…..I am setting my Bright Line. I say read the book and join me

    I have lost 20 pounds since December. And now I’m really starting to hit it hardcore. I have PCOS which makes weight loss even more difficult. I just started intermittent fasting. Basically skipping breakfast and eating in an 8 hour window during the day. I have only been eating 1000-1200 calories the past few days. The clean diet is great thinking. I like high protein low carb also. For exercise I try to do at least 45 min of walking/jogging intervals and 15-20 minutes of strength training. I weigh in Friday. I was 193 last week. I have a high goal of losing 4 pounds a week. So I want to be down to 189 Friday. I’m 5’4″ so I need to lose a lot. Ultimately I would like to be 130-135. Drinking lots of water helps and drastically reducing sugar as well as eating light dinners. Good luck Kris! I look forward to keeping up with your progress!

      Nice job on the 20!!! Eating clean is so hard… funny thing is, we all know whats healthy but doubt ourselves. Gonna try to just keep my head down – do the best I can to get through the next two weeks… after two it usually becomes easier. I’m trying for the same goal of 130 to 135… I dont see ma getting there by my wedding but any loss at this point would be welcomed! lol I look forward to hearing how youre doing as well! 🙂

    Everything that you said about gaining the weight in the last couple of years echos in my mind everyday. I was already 10 pounds over weight two years ago and then I decided to quit smoking. I have put on another 20 pounds on top of the 10 I had. My top weight was 160 and I am 170 pounds now. I would love to have your company to lose the weight and to start an exercise routine. I need the companionship to motivate me. Thanks Kris Williams and congratulations on your marriage in November. I am so happy for you. I have been following you for a few now. I am also a genealogist and love history. I thank you as well for sharing your adventures. Love to you.

I know, I know, people….That’s not healthy. It works. My will power has been awful weak. So I tell myself…Eat it and hate yourself later for that one moment of cake or candy or whatever…..Or don’t eat it and be happy with yourself the next morning. Gotta do it !!💙

    I’m in. But got an early start. In my 20s I was a light weight lifter and amateur kick boxer. I stayed around 190 lbs. Well, got married and started to drive A LOT for my new job. That now in my mid 40’s and over 300 lbs. I can’t believe I’ve gotten this bad. Worst, no one said any thing. What really got my ads moving was when I was chasing my grandsons around the yard and I tripped. My oldest grandson (7 At the time) yelled “fat man down!” I laughed outside but was crying inside. Recently I have joined a gym. Breakfast is either a protein shake or raisen brand with a banana chopped in to it. Lunch is another shake. Supper is what ever the wife makes but I have changed my plate to a saucer. Been doing this a month and down 10 lbs. Slow going but he’ll, it’s going. Good luck. Your not in this alone

    I’m attempting to do the same. May I suggest Premier protien. They are often doctor recommended, taste good and have 30G of protien with vitamins and minerals with only 1 gram of sugar. They really keep you satisfied between meals and give me some energy for my workout. You can get them anywhere (I’ve been getting then at Hannaford or Wal-Mart) a 4pk is between $6-7 dollars. They are conveneient which is important to a lot of people. Incline walking on the treadmill and the recumbent bike has eloped tone my legs and reduce my knee pain. One day and one choice at a time and you will get there 🙂

      I’ve been using another called Pure Protein – one of the few I have found where I like the taste, is low on sugar and doesn’t cost a fortune. Yes on one day and one choice… where I tend to fall off track is when I look at this as a forever change – feels impossible. One day though? No big deal.

    I was 211 pounds in 2011 when I decided enough was enough!!! I couldn’t even walk in the morning, plantar fasciitis due to my weight! Being 5’1 I was so far from where I should be. By cutting out the sugar, counting calories, drinking water, and exercising I lost 80 pounds. Well, at some point I stopped all of that and went back to my old ways and gained half back.
    I know what I need to do but it’s as though I ignore the fact that the days, months, years go by and I have accomplished nothing in regards to weightloss.
    At this time I have a closet full of clothes I can’t wear. I refuse to buy bigger clothes yet am doing not a thing to fit back in them.

I’ve been on it for 8 weeks – took a “vacation for Easter”. I am down about 25 lbs in 8 weeks. I’m eating clean and feeling great! Not to mention I’m digging into those jeans that you always say you’ll get back into. Congratulations! You’ll look amazing on your big day!

My arms, inner thighs, and stomach have me so self conscious that I’m still wearing sweaters when it’s 75 degrees out. My goal is to lose 20 pounds in the next 2 months. I need accountability, that is my biggest hurdle.

      YES!!!!!!!!!!! Arms, thighs and stomach here too!!! And soooo self conscious – I have problems with fat in places I have never had it in my entire life… Im down to living in gym clothes cause I only have one pair of jeans that “fit”… they are so damn uncomfortable but I refuse to buy another pair up. R-E-F-U-S-E! Hopefully we can find some accountability here. 🙂

    Workout buddies are the way to stay motivated. If you need a buddy, I’m there for you! The Nashua YMCA is great! Remodeled, state of the art facility. Go check it out! That’s my problem, it’s too easy to just not go if only you are the one to convince. But if someone is there pushing, you’d go, right?!? I would for sure. And yes getting out of breath quickly is the most alarming part of aging and gaining weight. Gray hair too.

    Hi Kris! I’m onboard!!! I, too am a stress eater and a yo-yo dieter. Im only 5’2 and my weight is back up to 176. I was at 169 a few months ago. I hate how I let myself lose control and discipline. So, girl…im not getting any younger- let’s this!!

    I was almost 40 pounds overweight when I started 3 months ago (5’4″, 170) and I decided to take weekly pics of myself to keep myself motivated, and even though I’ve only lost 17 lbs so far I’m pretty chuffed that I’m finally starting to see a visible progression…can’t wait for the last 23!
