December and January were sllllooooowww on the weightloss in pounds front. I hit a platue for awhile and the scale and I were not friends. We were becoming enemies. I weighed myself on 2/11 and I was finally under 260. I was at 259. I had some running around to do tonight so i didn't work out. I went to pick the daughter up at Ta Kwon Do and had to use the little girls room. The scale is there in the locker room and I thought what the heck, let's see where we are today Jeanette. In 7 days, I have lost another 2 pounds!!! 2 pounds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Holy smack!!! So what am I doing differently then in December and January?
1) NO FAST FOOD!!!! Remember the horrible Big mac incident in early January? I spent most of the day in bed with horrible stomach pains after eating a Big Mac and French fries. I can proudly say I have not had a Big mac or any fast food like that since that day. In fact, I don't even crave that junk anymore. The only fast food I have had since then is pizza and subway (is subway fast food? I eat Subway a lot for lunch). I have had craving for pizzas but i don't scarf down half a pizza by myself anymore.
2) Water, lots and lots of water. I am trying desparately to stop drinking diet sodas. I am down to drining 1 can every other day or every 3 days. I swear it is like a crack addict with this stuff. It was easier for me to quit smoking then quit drinking diet soda. I have been drinking green tea as well.
3) I have cut way back on bread and sugar. I still bring lunch meat to snack on and even cheese but I don't use bread anymore. This has been making my stomach feel better too.
4) and lastly I am eating lots more vegies. I eat a salad 4 to 6 days out of the week. My portion size is probably too big but I am replacing sugar and high carb snacks with vegies. I need to start cutting back on the portion size. One step at a time.
I am still taking green coffee bean extract and red raspberry ketones. This is probably helping as well.
I am just beside myself. It is awesome to see results finally!!
