Well it has been a few days since I posted here - can I use the excuse that it is because of this time of year - at any rate I am here.
Still doing the no sugar no flour food plan and still pleased with the results. Am still on a learning curve though with it - but not giving up hope - have come to far in this journey with weight loss to give up now.
The last week or so I have been having 2 oz of cheese at lunch. Today was my last day to do this as I don't like how I am feeling - and the scale in 2 days is showing a gain which is not nice. Now I know that everyone has ups and downs but when following this plan, especially when I look at how much I have yet to release, and that I am following it 100% then my thoughts are saying a gain just should not happen at this time. When I look at my food journal, which I am so thankful that I have been keeping I can see that one thing I have done - still in range of the quantity re food - is that I have had cheese every day. Cheese tends to be more dense and I do believe that that is what I am feeling - the heaviness that cheese can do us. So I am now off all cheese till after the new year. One of the feelings I am now having since eating cheese every day is that I am getting more tired faster - needing just a 10 - 15 minute 'nap' in the morning - that is all part of the detox - so have to go through this now to rid myself of the cheese - lesson learned and will be remembered.
Am trying to get used to my resistant band. Have not used it as much as I had planned - again another mind thing - so am going to have to set my little timer to remind me to get up and use it every hour or so.
My Scripture verse for today is
Psalm 61:103 (ESV)
Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer;
from the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint.
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I, for you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy.
3 things I am grateful for today are
(1) grateful for the great time last night when our assistant Pastor and his wife came over for supper and a great visit.
(2) grateful that I was able to stay completely on plan with company for dinner
(3) grateful that I live in a country where we have the freedom to worship as we do.
