Hi everyone! I just found this community and I've been reading over the posts. What a great place to gab and gain support. I'm Kate and I'm trying to lose the 20+ lbs. I've gained since getting married 4 years ago.
My story is waaay too much fast food, grabbing unhealthy carb-laden foods instead of nutritious home-cooked meals. Also, an addiction to sugars that I never really realized until I read the SB book. Also, I just discovered I have PCOS and we're hoping to conceive soon.
So...I'm about 5 days into it. I have to say, it is so much easier than I thought it would be. I am honestly not driven by cravings all day, and that is such a freeing feeling. The only complaint I have is I feel I'm eating the same old stuff even if I dress it up a different way...and the only specific complaint I have is breakfast. I don't think I can stand to see another egg, but I'm not sure what other option I have of filling my belly and fighting cravings the rest of the day.
Last night I made bacon-veg-cheese egg cups and I'm hoping that makes it more interesting. I also hard-boiled some eggs and I thought about trying those with a little string cheese.
Breakfast is really the only time when I am internally whining for fruit and toast. Any menu ideas would be appreciated!
