Holy smokes....I LOVE it!!! I will admit I was being greedy and so wanted to see wonderland...but it didn't happen yet...I say yet, because I know it is coming! I am just so darn giddy that I can't believe I will have a one leading my weight soon....that is wild to me. I keep reflecting as to why this has been so consistent and all I can think of is that I reached my green zone. Things just don't seem as difficult, its not as hard to make good choices. I fill up quickly. I can still eat almost anything including rice, bread...I will admit that I have included a salad in as a meal everyday for the last month. Seriously, is it the fiber or my reduction in carbs..not sure but I am going to continue that salad daily until it stops working or I get sick of them. By getting the Bountiful Basket weekly I get lots of yummy things to put in my salad so I REALLY enjoy them. I do have days when salads are harder to get down...I have to slow way down to eat them..and then there are days when they go down no problem. On tight days I find that if I just take things slow and chew a bunch I have no problem eating pretty much anything. I like that a lot. I didn't want to not be able to eat things. I still stick to my morning shake at 5:30 and then a snack around 9:00 which lately has been an edamame pouch or almonds(just a single serving..have to count them out and prepackage them or I will eat more.) and then a good lunch of chicken salad and a few RF triscuits for lunch. A Snack about 3:00pm when I get home which is usually a popcicle and dinner of a salad...sometimes some string cheese at 3:00 and at 6:00. I really must not have oreos or chocolate in my house..they are my downfall..I will eat them if I see them. I also try not to have any ice cream I like because I will eat that too. Cereal and popcorn are also big no no's for me as I don't stop at a serving. I think now that I have figured out my triggers, I try to set myself up for success. It could all be hogwash and go right down to the fact that I am in my green zone and things are just easier...whateve...just glad it is finally working for me.
So things are warm here..around 88 degrees was the high yesterday and we are suppose to hit a cooling trend fri-at least mon of highs in the 60's so that is a big jump in temp and with losing this weight...I am cold alot already so I bet I will be freezing here soon. I am not sure if the rest of you get that coldness but I seem to have a chill around me a lot and what I have read it is from losing weight.
