Starting Week 4.....

Monday, August 16, 2010

I feel great. I am starting to look great. My clothes are looser. My muffin top is now a mini-muffin top! I have a waist again. I'm ENJOYING the change in lifestyle - I may have FINALLY found a plan that works for me......HOLY MOSES I am grateful for that!!!

An added benefit is having a supportive husband, who, while he does cheat on this plan, he doesn't flaunt it in my face or try to get me to cheat also.

I thought I would miss wine, but when I see DH's progress hindered by beer it makes me just not want the alcohol at all. And no wine makes it much easier to not miss cheese!!!

I really do miss sugar, but the fruit is doing a great job of helping me through that. I've tried other plans that didn't allow anything naturally sweet and that just did NOT work for me!

I am so grateful for SP, the encouragement I find here, the friends I have made and the ease of tracking food and exercise!!

Is this really me talking or has a healthy alien taken over my body?

    Heather, I'm so HAPPY that this is working for you and that you are excited about it...and remember, you don't have to deny yourself forever...just till you get where you want to be and then you can ease small amounts of the things you love back into your life. Keep it up...that Great Attitude makes it so much easier...even when Bobbles puts temptation in your way. YOU ARE ROCKING!!!!!

    Heather, I'm so glad this is a positive experience for you and working so well!!! I just knew you were in the mindset to get this done!! I agree that allowing no natural sugars like fruit is not acceptable! I cannot do that! I'm proud of you, hun! emoticon emoticon

    emoticon That's awesome, Heather!

    One thing that I have found to help me with my sugar cravings is Stevia. It is an all natural sweetener derived from a plant. Not all stevia products taste good, but I do really like Stevita brand liquid sweeteners. I buy them online and use them to sweeten herbal tea when I'm craving a soda.
