I’ll take it!
Doing a combination of mostly vegetarian with a 2-day semi-fast. The mostly vegetarian is working out this week: we’re eating only humanely raised, grass-fed meats. I’m buying a pound of meat every two weeks from the local CFA: last time was a pound of ground beef for yummy burgers; this time we’re getting a pound of bacon. I really like this CFA: they’re making eating local a lot easier and since they plan to hoop farm all next winter, we’ll have lovely hearty greens even in February.
If you’re thinking about eating local, try a google search for Community Farmers Associations in your area. We’re getting eggs, meat, cheese, fruit, veggies, four and cake mixes, popcorn, etc.
It’s nice to see the scale moving in the right direction for a change. I’d celebrate the full 10 pound loss, but I’ve been back and forth over this number on the scale so many times over the last year that it seems hardly appropriate to celebrate a number. Instead, I’m going to celebrate having control over my eating again and being able to wear my jeans without feeling like they’re going to cut me in half.
We have a spring seminar with the entire department at the end of April, and my mom’s visiting around that time as well, so I’d like to be down enough to fit into some of the fun spring clothes in my closet.
Happy losing Chicks!
