So? How did you do?
This is the story of mine. At the end of the March challenge I was down to 155.6 or something like that, and then EASTER WEEKEND...and after that I was instantly back to 160.8. SIGH!!!!
Here we go again! I started the challenge and was really starting to get frustrated that I could not eat this, could not eat that, or the next thing. I got bored with my menu and so I would just drink coffee instead. Then I started limiting coffee to 2 -3 cups a day. Then I cut down further to 1 cup a day. Well that left me hungry ALL THE TIME, but not motivated enough to prepare veggies and food that I was bored with.
Then we started exploring the protein issue in the blogs and I realized I was not eating enough protein or enough calories int he day!
IN CAME "THE PLAN"
and I have been enjoying their menu and the foods are not boring!
Now I am starting to gather Data based on what the scale says each day in reaction to one new food introduced.
So far I can eat 1 oz of dark chocolate a day without weight gain, I can have steak ( 2.5 oz) , I can have Rye crackers, I can have bismati brown rice ( but I only had it once in a week)
Cheese seems to be a problem for me, so I will keep being friendly to my body and avoid it for now and retest it later!
For me I lost most of my weight in the last part of the challenge when I started "The Plan."
So Start weight was 160.8 lbs
now weight 155.0
that is - 5.8 pounds!
I am down on most measurements except upper arm, and calf and abs.
So all in all I am happy with the results!
So no Wheat, no white carbs except Rye crackers and brown bismati rice in the last half of the challenge. Loads of veggies in the last half of the challenge!
"The Plan" seems to be working wonders for me...and the scale is moving in the right direction.
Now, let me just say how PROUD I am of all the 30 Day Challenge participants! You have checked in daily! Sent me awesome pics and have made this a fun month!
Thank you for joining me in this journey of wellness!
Each one of you is so special and I love hearing how you are learning more about yourselves and your relationship to food. Like I said, it is not about perfection, it is about progress!
HUGS TO YOU ALL!
