February has been a good month. I stayed with The Plan and discovered that wheat and shrimp are not friendly to my body - both caused a gain when tested.
I lost another 5 pounds this month and are at my lowest weight in nearly 7 years.
The best thing however is how well I feel. I sleep better and my joints aren't stiff and creaky when I get up in the morning. Yoga has become an option rather than a necessity to get mobile. I now do it because I like how it makes me feel energized and balanced, no longer to work the "kinks" out.
You could argue that the Plan is restrictive but why would I eat foods that make me feel bad and are not good for me?
Do I miss my cookie with my coffee? Yes!
Is it worth the stomach discomfort and joint stiffness (not to mention the weight gain)? No!
I have learned that the number on the scale is data - not a judgement on my choices. A perfectly healthy food can be reactive, everybody is different. I treat the Plan as a science project and learn as I go along :)
Yesterday's dinner: crustless spinach and mushroom quiche with chopped salad
