Oh my Cheese where art thou?

Saturday, August 29, 2015

Aaaaaah cheese! My dear, dear cheese! I miss you sooooo much! It's so hard not to have you! Melty and stringy mozzarella, or savoury parmesan, or salty feta, or simply delicious just like that Jarlsberg! I want it all!!!

I'm dreaming of swiss fondue, I'm craving pizza but simply for the cheesy toppings, and it's really weird because I'm really a sweet tooth, so I was expecting to crave cookies and ice cream and cake. But I realised that in all the different approaches I tried to lose weight, this is the first time dairy is completely out!

I cheated again and stepped on the scale today... OMG! That thing must be broken, the results are unbelievable!

I've lost 14 pounds already! Three pounds since my last weigh-in on wednesday! I know it will slow at one point, probably after the 2 weeks mark (I'm on day 13), but still!
I'm currently at 203 lb, and I started at 217 lb. I'm quite certain I will hit Onederland somewhere before the end of it. At the rate I'm losing, I would love to end this challenge somewhere around 195 lb. But I'm already super happy with my results.

And it's not just the weight, I feel like my skin is sooo soft and I generally sleep better.

People are starting to notice the change. I can see my face is slimmer. It's exciting!

So, let's make some predictions. Let's say I do finish Whole30 at 195 lb. I will probably stall a little in the 2 weeks between the end of it and the beginning of BLC29 (because of too much cheese probably).
So I would love to start BLC29 at around 195 lb and I said my goal was to lose 15 pounds during the challenge.

My friends, that would put me at my lowest in forever. I was 186 lb last year, but never reached 180 lb! So this is the plan: to give myself the best Christmas present ever and be hot and sexy in a brand new dress for Christmas!

I'm really proud of myself so far, because I've had ideas of cheating when no one was looking in the last couple of days, but I pushed through!

Now, I'll go make something for lunch! Probably eggs and beet greens, and try not to think how delicious parmesan or feta would have been in it!

    Way to go! Happy to hear you are able to stick with it and are so happy with the results. Maybe at some point you can add some cheese back in moderation? Love the goal with the Christmas dress!

    I agree with Janlarose, ruling something out of your diet completely always ends up in binging - and you even wrote "because of too much cheese probably" so you even PLAN on binging on cheese when you're "done" with this plan? :-/ I understand it's a short time but if you're wanting it that bad, having a small piece won't kill you. Self-control has its limits. Balance is the key. Anyway, sorry I'm not wanting to sound negative, just giving you my opinion!

    I am a carbs addict and I have allowed myself a sweet treat at least once a day. I started at 218 and am down to 207. Because I don't deny myself I don't miss it. Therefore I don't fall off the wagon and binge. Therefore, no regrets.

    If you miss cheese so much, why don't you pay it a visit. I'm not saying an all you can eat buffet, but a little bit here and there. Count the calories, make it part of your eating. Allow yourself a little. You shouldn't have to be tortured.

    I am a cheese person also. Now trying to limit it. It's tough though
