Okay. I've be at this for 7 weeks now. I'm thrilled to say I've love 6 1/2 pounds. Everyone keeps saying when you loose it slow...it stays off. I can't believe how I just 'let go' and not think about what I put in my mouth. This week I searched restaurant menus on the web. I've come to the conclusion that if restaurants placed the calorie count next to the food item in the menu.....we'd all be eating less. My husband and I have been sharing meals at restaurants for years. The portions are so big.
I want to talk about sweets. We never had sweets in our house growing up. It was a special event to have cake for a sibling birthday. Now, we all think we deserve cake everyday. Where did that come from? What food is left for the big, special occasion? It comes down to this, we want our cake and eat it too....everyday. Well, not this girl. If some sweets are offered, I will take a nibble....and I mean nibble. That is enought to satisfy my taste buds.
I've started my mother in law on SP. She is 81 years old and lives with us. She was thrilled when she went to the doctor this week and reported she lost 4 pounds. Tonight she turned the KeyLime Pie down....and walked away. (We were celebrating my son's birthday with his favorite desert!) Wow, she is doing great! I had my nibble....yummm...yumm..
As Americans we make no sacrifices.....we deprive ourselves nothing.........where did that come from? I want to know what it's like to make a sacrifice.........
Enough for now............Keep counting.
