I’ve been doing a Low-Carb diet for a smidge over a week now. It is hard, but it has gotten easier. I never realized how much my diet consisted of carbs until I couldn't eat them. I miss my milk products (thank goodness I can have the cream for my coffee though-go figure) and crunch snacks and FRUIT! It is weird not to be able to just pick up what I want and eat it with moderation (what I've been used to). I can say that right before I started this two-week program, I had regained a few pounds I had lost. So total I've lost (doing low carb) 7.6 lbs, but since last weigh-in 4.8.
I am very pleased with the results. There were a few days where I re-gained a pound and I think it was because I ate too many tomatoes (they are a fruit after all.) I can have some, but not the amount I was eating. My garden has been pumping out the tomatoes, especially the super sweet and yummy cherry tomatoes that I’ve been eating a ton of daily!
As of this morning, I’ve lost 11lbs since I started checking in with the folks at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. It has been a slow process, but I am thrilled to have FINALLY earned my 10lb button!
I am SO THRILLED to have won a copy of EA Sports Active for the Wii through the Sisterood and will now be particpating in the next challenge beginning Sept 1!!
