#126 - 30.

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

When I stepped on the scale this morning, I was in for a big surprise. I've finally reached 30 pounds lost! What a feeling! I still can't believe it's true.

I've said this in other blogs, but I'll say it again because it's the truth. I never thought I'd ever see this day. I never thought I'd lose even 10 pounds. It's almost like a virtual slap in the face - "Girl, what were you thinkin' when you were doubting yourself?!"

**I'm not sure I like the above picture as I don't really see much of the loss. Is it just me? (Be honest.)**

I will have to say that this cleanse has pushed me over the 30 marker. While I am so so grateful for that, I'm even more thankful that I'm finally craving healthier foods. It's easier to turn down food too. For example, this morning, one of the clients came in with a box of doughnuts that were hot and fresh. The aroma was enticing, but I stuck to my guns and politely declined. Instead, I opted for two cuties, a green apple, and a handful of almonds. The old me would have eaten two of those bad boys (doughnuts).

As for the gluten experiment last night, it went well. I had a whole wheat kaiser with baked chicken, lettuce, tomato, a little honey mustard, and 1.5 servings of organic potato chips. I had no reaction at all. Woo hoo! Hopefully, the next two days will produce the same results as gluten-free things are a pain!

    First off, congrats! You can definitely see it in the picture, especially around the waist. I think the trouble you're having seeing it has to do with having a jacket on in the second picture. The jacket hides your arms and your body shape, so it's harder to tell what size you are, but you can definitely see the change especially in your stomach! :)

Second, can you send me information about the cleanse you're doing? I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out what food/ingredient is bothering me. I'm not sure I can do a cleanse, but I'd like to at least read about the process to see if I can adapt it to help me find what is bothering me!
