First, the fun stuff.
The ex-wife is going to lay eyes on me for the first time on May 24, and I intend to look slammin' in a mini dress.
Okay, so that's catty, but dang if it isn't motivating.
I already have the dress. A Size 4 number that I used to wear at the turn of the century, and I really did look slammin' in it.
My question is this: there is a sticky about Phase I foods to use (I start tomorrow) that was posted by Ruthxxx in May of 2008. Is that the latest list? And is that SBD approved or is that a modified list for this site?
My confusion is that when I got the SBD recipe book, it clearly stated no bacon and no sausage. Yet, within the recipes, I see bacon and sausage used.
I have to say that I have never read so much about a way of eating as I have about SB. This seems to require a tremendous amount of planning and trips to the supermarket (lettuce doesn't freeze well). Husband left this morning on a business trip and will be back next weekend. I figured it's a good time for me to dive into this and when he gets back, it should feel rather natural to me. He's jumping on board with me here, not because he needs to lose an ounce, but because this is just a good way to eat and live.
Now back to
mode... does anyone have any personal stats to share? I will be running and weight lifting four to six times a week and will diligently stick to this way of eating. Is it reasonable to lose 25 to 30 pounds in three months? I'd love to hear your stories.
