Dieting Results.

I weighed in this morning and have lost FOUR pounds!!! Garth also weighed in and lost FIVE pounds! YAYAYA! After not seeing the scale move for 2 months, it was a feeling of pure elation to see the drop. Now I am motivated to start calorie counting and lose the last 7lbs!
Some of you asked: "What if I don't like eggs or tuna?" and I would say, eat something just as healthy and protein packed like soy nuts or peanuts.
I will confess we didn't follow the diet exactly like we did the first time. I went out to lunch with my mom yesterday and had a spinach omlette instead of the hard boiled egg on toast. I also skipped on the banana and cantelope because I hate them and almost got sick when I ate them last time I did the diet. And I still lost so I wouldn't worry if you don't love everything on here, because you could substitute or just not eat it and still lose.
Thanks for the encouraging words. I do recommend doing this with someone. I don't think I could stay on it if Garth wasn't doing it with me. Last night was the smallest and hardest meal, but Garth and kept busy by going to the gym, walking, and watching TV and laughing. And changing the channel whenever food was displayed or talked about!
We are so happy about the results, in fact, we are going to do it again next week (Mon-Wed) and calorie count over the weekend.

Seeing your results on the scale is such a positive motivator to keep going, isn' it?? I've lost about 6 pounds since I started counting calories a month ago and I feel great! Congrats on your progress! :)

That's great news!!! Now just a few more lbs to go! Keep it up!

My favorite dieting trick is to sleep more. Sleep is my favorite thing next to food, so if I'm hungry at 8pm I just go to bed early and then I'm not tempted to eat!
