Well - maybe I should whine a bit more about my weight loss, because this week was a big ol' 2 POUNDS! Yep, I get to add an "s" to that. This would make a grand total of 6 pounds in 5 weeks. Not too shabby if I say so myself.
Since I didn't hear from any of you on questions you have, or comments on how you are doing I am going to randomly choose a topic to discuss every week. This week I am going to talk about my diet. I have learned from my past mistakes that trying to follow a strict diet doesn't work long term for me. What does - so far making small, but lasting, changes. I have pretty much eliminated artificial sweeteners from my diet, and instead use natural options if I need to. I have also severely cut "white" products, like potatoes, bread and pasta. Instead I am using whole wheat bread and pasta products and if we do have potatoes we have sweet potatoes. I am also adding a TON of fruits and veggies to my diet. The thought behind that is that if I am filling up on fruit and vegetable options I am not hungry for "junk". (Does this mean that I always, 100% of the time make these choices - nope. Just most of the time.)
I also allow myself one "treat" a day. Lately that has been Easter Candy, a cookie, or something like that.
I do have a couple of new recipes that I have been making, so leave a comment to vote on which one you would like me to feature next!
1. Buffalo Chicken Salad
2. No-bake Energy Cookies
3. Crustless Breakfast Quiche
Until next week!
