I am a diet coke addict... I am so proud that I now drink fewer in one week than I did in a day before LAWL. Sometimes, I just have to give in... but, I believe that they make me crave
foods & more diet coke... just a neverending cycle. Even since, I have cut back... they still trigger my hunger pains... so, I try to stay away from them as much as possible... but, some days... I have to give in... usually because, I'm too lazy to make tea.
I'm not sure if it's ok for the plan, but last Saturday, I had some unsweetened raspberry tea... it was delicious.
I like water... so, usually, I just have water... sometimes with lemon. I have drank unsweetened tea for years... without any sugar substitute... I can't stand it sweetened... tastes like syrup... I like to use lime rather than lemon in my tea... if you have never tried it... try it.
I believe that cutting back on the sodas & drinking lots of water & eating several servings of fruit has really helped me drop some pounds.
Lorrie, I know that you will be glad when you have your surgery behind you! I hope that you feel lots better soon & I'm sending you an
to watch over you for a speedy recovery.
Well, I went to the bridal shower this PM... they had my favorite cake... lots & lots of tasty goodies... I asked my daughter to get me some water rather than punch... they had a veggie tray... so, I had broccoli & cucumbers... my daughter sat across & said Mama, is that all you want... I said please don't make a big deal out of it... maybe folks won't notice... "no, it's not all i want... but, it's all that is OP. love you, now, be quiet."
Then, I brought cake home for my other daughter & husband... my other daughter is baking bread (oh, the house smells so good)... for a party tomorrow... told her that I could not help her in the kitchen... my willpower has willed all it can for one day.
My hubby grilled us a steak for super... I just couldn't eat all mine... too tired of chewing... told him, I'd just have my leftover with my 2 eggs for breakfast.
I thank each of you for being such kind
& being here to let me vent. I got on the scales here at home... didn't see any results... one more day of express... then, I go weigh at the center Tues... I will really be down in the dumps if I have not lost after resisting all the goodies at the showers this weekend... I guess that Tues will tell the story.
Ya'll take care! Thanks again for helping me make this journey.
And, Marcie... I hope your new job comes through... let us hear.
