Yeah . . . I know . . . it's Friday! Life totally got in the way of blogging the last couple days. And when life didn't get in the way, I was just too dang tired.
Well, still no change. Three weeks of supposed weight-watching, and I'm still down only 1 pound. And my clothes don't feel all that different. I think it's time to switch gears. I really thought that by posting my progress, that would keep me focused to really stay committed - knowing that "eyes" were watching. Now I'm wondering if it's doing the opposite. Maybe it's causing me unrealized stress and anxiety, hampering my weight-loss efforts.
Hubby says I do this to myself every year. Put on some pounds over the holidays, and fight getting rid of them until late Spring. He's right. Just seems like this year there's a few more pounds than usual that are making me panic a bit.
Since this "all-out-there-in-your-face" approach isn't working, I've decided to try to stick - as much as I possibly can - to the
I bought the book several years ago, but never followed it. The first two weeks, Phase One, sounds doable. For just two weeks, it cuts quite a bit of sugar and unrefined carbs from your diet, while adding in more lean protein. That's where I think most of my problems lay -carbs and sugar - those nasty little fellas! Annndddd . . . the good Doctor claims you'll loose the belly fat first.
If it works!
I'm also going to put the reins on Weigh-In Wednesday. Maybe if I don't think about it so much, I'll be more successful. I really can't believe it's so hard to loose just 15 pounds when people are out there loosing scores of weight all the time!
On my bimonthly, large grocery shopping trip yesterday, I grabbed up some of the key ingredients needed for carrying out Phase One of the SBD. I've already warned the family they're in this with me. I really think another one of my big problems is preparing meals for them, checking and tasting the entire time I'm cooking (I'm a BIG taster when I cook!), is adding too many calories to my day. It's either they eat what I cook for the next two weeks, or they're on their own!
So, that's it! I'm done talking about my weight here on my blog . . . for now anyway. I promise to have more "fun and exciting" posts in the next couple days. I'm gearing up to redo our master bedroom, and I'm going to post the ever-so-unattractive before pics and ask for some opinions. Also, I'm still thinking of great giveaway for my 100th post. Stay tuned . . .
Have a great Friday everyone!
