Oh my, didn’t realize this wasn’t posted. It’s now up for your viewing.
I know that I shouldn’t complain. I know that I should be, and am, proud of my accomplishment to this point but Grrr! Don’t you hate plateaus?? What’s so weird is that I seem to be losing inches at this point but not pounds. Physiologically that doesn’t quite make sense to me but I’ll take it. I’m down 145 pounds and 8 sizes! It’s all happened so fast and now I’ve been riding this plateau for a month….. Something’s gotta give!
I have been pushing my blinders out some and allowing myself some “new” things. For 11 months I’ve kept it simple and straight by the program as to what I was able to feed my body. I’m sure my body is saying “What in the heck is going on here?”. I understand that I need to let me body catch up in this process so now I need patience. You know where I can find some?? As if it were bottled for marketing…. I’m quite thrilled where I am now but I’m not done so it’s just a matter of waiting it out. Perhaps throwing in some changes has confused my body too. We’ll see how the next week or two goes. Trying to incorporate more physical activity but time is such a valuable thing that I don’t have enough of - at any given point of the day.
If you open my refrigerator now it looks like a walking talking advertisement for Walden Farms. What’s Walden Farms you may ask?? Check out their website www.waldenfarms.com. OMG! NO CALORIE products!! Some items that I’ve got are marshmallow creme, chocolate sauce, caramel dip, strawberry spread, peanut spread, balsamic vinegarette, thick & spicy bbq sauce and pancake syrup. For no calories, etc. I think I can retrain my tastebuds and my brain!! I’m trying to anyways. The best by far is the thick & spicy bbq sauce. I eat a lot of lean protein and that ads a lot flavor. I’m going to have to go buy a second bottle before long. The pancake syrup is better than any reduced fat, low calorie syrup that I’ve ever had the discomfort of trying to eat and did “because it was good for me”. Literally I have gone in and taken a sip for something sweet - YUM! The balsamic vinegarette is pretty good too. I typically eat my salads plain but it’s not bad. I’ve just got to learn what I can and can’t eat in the real world within reason. All I can do is try to do the best I can do and be the best that I can be. I AM DOING THIS FOR ME!!
