How to Lose 25 Pounds... or more

I have been everything from a size 14 to a size zero. Now, I am about an 8/10. Every time I go to the Dr. her first comment is "lose weight" which I know is true, but annoys me nonetheless.

I eat healthy, whole grain, organic, vegan.

I am active.

I feel good.

Doesn't all of that count for something?

Anyway, I have a new diet and exercise plan:

We run around the park, literally, multiple times at least three times a day.

When we aren't at the park, we are playing inside.

During nap time, I do dishes, take a shower, fold laundry, make the bed, etc. Which means little time for snacks and just about enough time to fit in three square meals a day.

Sometimes I nap, too, when he naps, because getting up at 2:00a.m and 5:00a.m. for puppy potty breaks can catch up with a gal. Did you know sleeping burns more calories than sitting around reading a book or watching t.v.?

Oh, and Mr.B&B is helping, too. Tonight we went out for some together time without the pup. Our adventure included walking, frisbee, and swings.

That's that plan. I'll let you know how it works out. Do you have any predictions?


  1. I am on that same plan! We got our puppy April 21st and I'm down 5 pounds. She's kinda lazy. *sigh*

  2. Wow, you're a busy girl! I never realized puppy training was that hard!

  3. A new baby can change your whole life. Luckily puppyhood is a whole lot shorter than human babyhood!

  4. I think being healthy and feeling good are the *only* things that matter. But in order to motivate myself to do active things I imagine not feeling -good- but feeling the -best- ... meaning, i feel great right now, but i'll feel even better after a long hike, so i go do that. :)

  5. Hi! I replied to your comment on my blog, but I decided to comment here again as well, to make sure you got it. Our puppy is an Old English Sheepdog named Lucy. From what I've read she's totally typical of the breed. She tries to mother all of us! We are all in love with her. Here's the link to the story with her puppy picture.

  6. You are probably very healthy. And an 8/10 is not an overweight size. Enjoy your puppy, he is as cute as he can be.


Have a Brainy and Beautiful Day! Love reading all the Brainy and Beautiful Things you say <3
