My sincere apoplexies for not writing sooner to let you know how I did since climbing back into the groove of things at the end of August of last year.
Late last summer, I made the decision to make better food choices, to nail down food intolerances and to limit those foods, to try a “less than perfect” ketogenic (low carb) diet, and to do my best to make better food choices (it’s a journey, you know).
So how did it go?
I am pleased to report that after 6 months of effort (some of it good, and some of it…well, let’s say there were a few granola moments), I have lost…
Bum ba da dum dum dum dummmmmmmmm…
*that’s my high tech drumroll*
That is right! In your face, abdomen! Up your butt, thighs! In your ear, rear!
Ninety pounds, people! I am this close to being 100 pounds down (since beginning this post, I’ve lost a couple more), and I’ve done it my way, baby. My way. I’m eating my recipes (as if you ever doubted), doing hardly any exercise (I don’t want to spill my drink), and by being accountable to you and to me. And to these slimmer clothes (wearing tighter clothes reminds me why I’m doing this–at least partially).
I am keeping tabs in MyFitnessPal almost daily to check on what I’m doing (I also use the software to calculate recipe totals). I am still sticking to roughly 1200-1500 calories most days, eating when hungry and not eating when not hungry (which translates to 1-3 meals per day, depending). I put my recipes in there and can gab totals for servings, so I always know just how I’m doing.
The FAQ Section under “About” has more information about what’s working for me.
Speaking of accountability, don’t forget to keep your information updated in our weekly Spring into Summer Challenge! Checking in and knowing others are there with you cheering you on really makes a difference.
How are you doing? Chime in below in comments and let me know. I love comments more than just about anything else, so drop in and say hey!
