OK… so a lot of people have been checking in. Typically they are checking in as I am pressing a drink to my lips or throwing some food in my belly WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE ??
The truth is … it’s been about 3 weeks and I have lost 2 1/2 pounds .. almost 2 pounds !! I’ve stopped eating Cheetos at 10am. Cut my gummy bear habit down to one serving ( like 15 gummys) twice a week and I am eating more veggies. I’m even eating those pre-mixed grocery store salads. I’m eating more veggies each day than I have in years … like since I was since I was preggers.
SPEAKING OF BEING PREGGERS. I ain’t but I was …
When we women get ‘knocked up’ we tend to follow all these rules. No wine. No sushi. No processed meat. WHY AREN’T WE DOING THAT AFTER THE BABY ?? Sure, you tried and hopefully succeeded in dropping that baby weight , but, you ( like me) probably ditched the diet when the baby started eating the good stuff. WE LOVE THE FRENCH FRIES, TATER TOTS, and CHICKEN NUGGETS the kids leave behind… right? Well, put that crap in a to-go container and don’t touch it. DO NOT TOUCH IT !!
What else is working ?? I am avoiding the chips, pretzels and Oreos in the snack cabinet by eating a half or a whole yummy avocado with sea salt each afternoon. It’s 250 calories but it fills me up and it’s “healthy” fat. Honestly, I am not eating too many carbs at all… especially at night. (except the vino) Bottom line – I am not going too crazy I am just being consistent and… IT’S WOOOOOOOORKING.
TRUST THE PROCESS PEOPLE !! TRUST THE DAMN PROCESS …
I think the more weeks I am doing this – the easier it gets. Love having you all here for the ride.
PUT THE CHIPS DOOOOOOOOOOWN.
