Whew! I survived the camping weekend (complete with buffet) and still lost 4 lbs. this week. Even though I'm a little burned out on dieting, it is easier in the sense that I have a much better handle on portions, and if I eat too much, I feel too full much faster.
So since August (early September, really), I've lost... (drumroll, please) almost 30 lbs. I'm 10lbs away from what I weighed when I first got pregnant with JC, so I'm finally loosing the baby weight, I guess!
It's all about portion control and quality foods. For example, I used to eat pretzels, because they are low fat, but it's all white flour and no protein. Fruits, veggies, whole grains, it really is making a difference for me. Combining protein with quality carbs is working - I always knew WHAT to do, it's doing it that's hard.
Ok, enough preaching. I'm not trying to boast but to inspire. Anyone who wants the book from Curves, just let me know. It's really just a regular diet, but it does have a nice emphasis on keeping your metabolism stoked.
