Starting weight on 7/24/10 was 199 Wgt. 1 mo. Later on 8/20/10 was 185.
I lost 14 lbs!!! I was a size 16 and today I am a 14 but the 14's are pretty loose. 12's HERE I COME!
I gave up Sugar and white flour so of course ALL processed foods. THANK YOU to my friend TWO-TOO-MUCH that shared her eating plan with me. I was so ready to be done with these cravings I constantly dealt with. I am happy to say I no longer have ANY CRAVINGS except for veggies and fruits and lean proteins. I was eating within my calorie range that spark gave me prior to starting this plan but I was eating low calorie junk food like fudge bars, baked chips, light breads, etc. and I found that some foods just made me want to eat 6 servings and not one LOL like some days I would have 5 (five) 40 calorie fudge bars!~ Seriously or 4 Fiber one chocolate bars and not 1! I called them trigger foods but in reality I have learned it was the sugar and flour in this stuff that made me want to graze like a cow.
After 3 days of eating on my new plan.... all desire to snack is gone... and I love fresh foods, nothing out of a package!
One of the biggest things I have noticed is the puffiness went away in my face literally the first week! I have tons of energy and feel wonderful!
Funny thing is the amount of sodium I consumed has now dropped to a low amount because I don't eat processed foods except for the occasional cottage cheese. It doesn't matter though, I need that sodium in my day... I have dropped to 1200 grams a day in sodium (including the cottage cheese amount)
