I weighed myself this morning and I got quite a surprise. I don't want to jinx myself but I have to share that I am down 5lbs. What am I doing?
First of all, I am still not eating sugar. That makes 27 days without sugar so far. Also, please note I don't eat grains (due to Celiac disease) or dairy either. I seem to be allergic to cow dairy. Secondly, I am eating whole foods. I am making everything I eat. Nothing from a box. Thirdly, I found some great whole foods recipes from a great website that are helping me eat healthy. The website is by a nutritionist named Zonya Foco. Her recipes are found here (she gives them to her readers for free). In many cases I have to modify these recipes to deal with my allergies or to cater to my husband's preferences. But, they are a great place to start and they are economical. I am trying to exercise but due to the heat I have not been doing too much of that. I think the big key is because my blood sugar is stable now from not eating sugar, so I can eat much less and be satisfied.
That is all I am doing. For me it all starts with not eating sugar. And, for that I have to thank the people at Thinking Slimmer. There "no more sweet treats" program has literally changed my life for the better!!
