Yeah, I busted through the plateau!!!!!! I checked on Friday last week and I had lost a pound. Then I weighed in on Monday, and I was down 2 more. I am currently at 214.3!!! Yeah! I am so grateful that something is finally working for me. And something that I don't have to really "think" about. It is so easy. Granted there are days when I am super busy and have a harder time getting all my protein in, but for the most part, it is something that I don't really have to think about. 2 shakes a day, high protein snacks, and a healthy colorful dinner (meal) and I am good to go. :) How simple is that? I mean really?
I feel great. I am not feeling deprived, or hungry all the time, and the shakes are nummy. They don't have that chalky yucky blah aftertaste like some I have used in the past. You know the ones where you have to plug your nose and gulp them down as fast as you can so you can get them down LOL! And then you drink a ton of water to rinse that nasty taste out! Well these are so much better than that. I mean the shake I make for lunch is better than a Jack in the Box milkshake. I love the combination of the Dutch Chocolate and Banana. Makes my mouth water the closer I get to lunch. And the Cafe' Latte that we have for breakfast is like drinking a Starbucks Frap with out the thousand calories! I am getting really excited for the rest of summer. I will have the energy I need to do whatever I want! And I will look good doing it!! I love this feeling. I love knowing that each day I am giving my body exactly what it needs to heal itself. I love that I don't have to kill myself with counting calories, and spend hours upon hours working out. I can do 30 minutes of exercise a day, and I am good. I don't have to find the time to do more. I can still have a normal life. And I can still eat the foods that I love. I am just smarter about my choices and instead of getting fries at a restaurant, I get the salad with dressing on the side. I make sure that I get lots of veggies, and I will pile my hamburger with lettuce and tomato's and veggies and leave off the mayo. I don't miss the mayo :) I still have a great messy hamburger, and I am still making better choices.
Here's to week 8 and new measurements, and more inches lost! :)
