Doesn't it look just too good not to eat?? I fought it for little bit, and then ate every piece, plus a few more left over holiday goodies. Now you all know my secret......I have no willpower!!! If it looks pretty, I'll eat it. I have been working on losing weight all my life. Well actually since my first pregnancy. I never lost my baby weight and continued to gain throughout the years. One thing on my "before 50" list is to lose weight. I have been losing steadily for 2 months eating no sugar. No added sugars and no natural sugars, which pretty much means that I have been eating meat, cheese, some veggies, eggs and...thats about it. I've lost 30 pounds in 2 months doing this and have absolutely no cravings which I love!! But you know, I don't really want to do this for life. I decided to continue this until I reach a weight/size that I am happy with and then slowly start adding things back in my diet. Ok...my starting weight 2 months ago was 230. I am 200 right now I was 195 on Christmas Eve, but jumped off my diet so I could eat all the things I haven't been eating for 2 months, and you know what?? It was fun, but 2 days later I felt horrible. Tired, sluggish, lazy, my stomach was bloated and I felt like a failure. Did I jump back on my diet?? Nope. I've continued to eat junk until last night when I made the decision to get back on track. Then this morning I was tempted, and I lost. I have always been an all or nothing kind of girl. Once I slip, I'm off for the whole day or the whole week, I need to change that so I keep telling myself that this slip doesn't need to continue the entire day. We will see how it goes :) I am not the girl that my husband married 29 years ago. I am about 75 pounds heavier. I don't want to get back down to 125. I'd like to be around 160. I think that would be a good fit for me. My husband has seen me through it all and supports me and loves me at any weight, but I want to do this for him, Most of all, I want to do this for me, so I feel like the 19 year old that he married :)
