My doctor asked me to read Wheatbelly and watch Forks Over Knives. I'm glad I did. It reinforced my desire to cut out "white" carbs and just eat meat, fruits, and vegetables.
I made a committment to myself and God for Lent that I would follow the Caveman spirit and only eat plants and animals. So far, so good.
So why have I not dropped 30 pounds like my friends on HCG?!!!!
Well, I had to get honest. I stopped tracking my food because I was eating clean. So yesterday, I estimated my calories in my head at about 1300. I went into Sparkpeople late last nightm while I was still munching on an apple and I was already at 2300 calories!
I have been underestimating my calories for about a month. So back to journaling.
I also need to exercise more. I do 20 minutes of Zumba in the morning, but I can do another hard 45 minutes of cardio and lifting at the gym right after work.
I am a newlywed and felt that I needed to rush home, put my dress and pearls on, start vaccuuming and have dinner on the table when my husband got home.
Luckily, he told me to go to the gym if I wanted to and that he would enjoy leftovers or wait. He is a sweetheart.
So I am starting over again. I only have 12 pounds to lose and I know I can do it.
