My apologies for being MIA......I'm still here, I'm still losing....just been buried under holiday preparations and errands as well as starting a new job!
I am now down to 206.8, which is another 1.6 pounds since I last blogged. I am still staying under my 15 grams of sugar per day, however, I haven't been counting my carb servings. While I am not out there totally blowing it, I am also not make a conscious effort to count them. I am still experimenting and trying new veggies at dinner, but my salad consumption has gone way down and I haven't been tracking my fiber intake. My weight loss has held steady at around 1/2 pound per week. I've also lost another inch on my waist, so I am now down to 5 inches lost on my waist. Even though the scale isn't moving as quickly as it was, I continue to see a difference in the way all my clothes fit......it's all so much looser :-)
Thanksgiving was not an issue.....I loaded up on turkey and veggies, then just took one spoonful of everything else that I like. It was exactly enough to satisfy me and I didn't feel like I was being deprived. To make it through Christmas without gobbling down every sweet treat I see or make, I've been allowing myself to drink diet soda. Having the diet soda is such a treat, that I am satisfied and don't feel like I need any cookies, etc. I'll go off the diet soda again once we are through the holidays.
Last week, we had different roasted squash with dinner....acorn, butternut and spaghetti squash. It is so, so yummy and I am amazed when the kids rave about it. This week I've loaded up on some "A" veggies to try.....asparagus and artichoke. If you have a favorite method for preparing either of those, let me know!!
Also, my job requires that I am out and about for most of the day calling on stores (I'm a retail merchandiser) and I spend alot of my time in the car......any suggestions for quick, easy BFC lunches I can pack to eat on the road???
I hope to blog again on Tuesday to get back on schedule here, but if you don't hear from me - never fear, I am still here and plodding along with the weight loss.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all - Namaste! Susan
About Me :-)
Welcome and thank you for visiting my blog! I am a 45 year old woman, mom to two active pre-teen/teen boys and wife to one "skinny" husband ;-). I am blogging my progress on Jorge Cruise's Belly Fat Cure. I began on August 17th, 2010. To date, I've lost almost 35 pounds and 5 inches on my waist. The Belly Fat Cure has changed my life and I wanted to share my story with everyone. I am a "former" soda/sugar addict; and Jorge has changed the way I view sugar and food, FOREVER!! My whole family has started eating healthier and even the kids like all the new veggies we now try at dinner. This has changed my life and I hope it will change yours as well :-)
