So, I've known forever that I wasn't a breakfast person. The though of eating in the morning makes me nauseous. BUT I forced myself to follow the "rule" of never skipping breakfast to improve my health for quite some time.
Anywho, recently I've gone back to listening to my body and started skipping breakfast. And, boy, do I feel great. It's been 3 weeks, and my dad and husband already noticed I've shed some pounds! I've certainly noticed in that my clothes fit looser (I actually bought a pair of pants size large today without trying them on, brought them home, tried them on for my dh and he said they looked big! sweet. :) and I feel like I have so much more energy. I've been cooking dinner more, waking up easier...
I have also been watching the calories and am sticking to the low end of my recommendations. I began walking daily for an hour, but that just started this week. Things are happening so easily.
And for you skipping-breakfast-is-bad-for-
you naysayers, check out the Nutrition Journal: www.nutritionj.com/conte
Here are some other good resources: www.thefatlossninja.com/
So, all in all, I'm pretty pumped about how things are going. That 20 year high school reunion is going to be that much sweeter. :)
