OK - I had excellent news - in this first week of the rest of my life I lost 6#. (I hope and pray I never find it again!!!)
I'm even happier that I don't feel as though I'm "dieting". Following a good, healthy, nutritious, eating plan is so much easier than "dieting". Whole foods - not processed behond recognition - make a huge difference. I have not even been tempted by McDonalds this week - that's a success right there! But I wasn't trying to avoid wanting McD's - I wasn't going to give in and eat there, but I was prepared to want it anyway. But nope - it seems that when we give our bodies healthy, whole foods, and eat until we are satisfied, our bodies stop craving junk.
Of course Sir has been stuck eating what I eat since I prepare His meals for Him, and since He asked me to feed Him more healthfully too I did. He found that in less than 4 days He lost 5#. grrrrr. Oh don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled. But why do men lose weight so much more easily than women???
Anyway - I'm looking forward to seeing Him weaned off some of His meds - a few more pounds will take care of the high blood pressure pills I bet!
