Greek Yogurt...who would have thought?!

Friday, August 26, 2011

So I took a break in weight loss for a bit again, but it was more for sake of eating what I wanted, going out to Dinosaur BBQ, drinking with some friends on a boat cruise, and some late dinners since the 19th (which was really only a long weekend Fri-Mon). Sometimes it's good to take a break- catch up with life and not live by the waist of your pants.

So 3 days ago I started my Greek Yogurt & Salad diet again! I have a problem - I can't get enough of either ---it's so bizarre - I never crave anything...and I AM NOT pregnant (okay I craved super spicy hot chili when I was pregnant, who cared that it was also 80 degrees out...)

And I am eating - not exercising like a mad woman, just a simple after dinner walk with the dogs...drinking boat loads of my water again (and back to my morning 1 litre)...come to think of it...I wasn't drinking as much water over the weekend...and I did feel dehydrated!

On a side note on water...husband is now starting the morning with a litre of water too. He said to me this week - the morning litre may not help me lose weight but I just started with cold water - you told me room temperature - how do I get it to that?....
(...ummm fill your water bottle up before bed, it'll be room temp in the morining...duh)...BUT I feel so much better like it is detox in the morning.

So back to me...Progress this week: Tuesday I was at 199 ( +1.2 gain over the weekend binge -not great, but totally respectable considering my consumption), Wednesday 197.6, Thursday 196.8, and this morning 195.4!!! YEAH me!!!

So my goal of 190 by 9/15 is looking like it might be attainable - I will have to see what becomes of me this weekend.

    Mirage - Tried the Dannon Oikos - Blueberry. I LOVED it. Thanks for turning me on to another brand. I will mix it in with the others. They only had honey and the blueberry Oikos when I went to the market - so maybe I'll trip over stoneyfield the next go around & give it a whirl too. :)

    I just discovered Greek yogurt straight up. I've been eating Tzatziki since I first went to Greece almost52 years ago! Now I've been trying different brands since yogurt is a staple in my diet. I've tried Chobani and it was good. But Oikos, made by Dannon and Stonyfield is better IMHO. The Stonyfield Farm brand is 100% organic. Now, I have a carving for it! Thanks for sharing and enjoy!
