In trying to keep it real here on the blog I'm talking about my quest to freaking lose weight.
Or, keep it off.
Such a pain, and I get so TIRED of it.
I've talked about my constant battle with weight here on this blog a long time ago.
As for recently, you might remember my post exactly a month ago, here, about nearly being at my goal weight.
Well, I was doing good, but the last two weeks have been SO hard.
I want to eat, eat, eat.
Fast food doesn't get me, it's just sandwiches, cheese, chips and wine.
Granted, I'm giving myself a pass for wine these days.
I enjoy it.
So, knowing we are leaving for the beach this Thursday night, I decided I was going to do the cabbage soup diet.
I've done this MULTIPLE times.
My Mom actually got me hooked on it and it's a great detox.
But, the last time I did it was in the year 2009.
It works, as much as people like to laugh about it.
It's a 7-day diet where you eat soup along with a specific meal plan each day.
I have typically done it before a big event to drop a few pounds(water weight).
Such as I did in 2009, for Beth and DJ's wedding.
I was able to lose 7-pounds prior to their wedding.
(even drinking wine some of the nights)
Brad actually did it with me and was hooked.
He's done it more than I have in recent years.
So, Brad and I both agreed to do it this week.
He made the HUGE pot of it on Saturday night.
We add mushrooms to ours.
I started it yesterday and you will ask how is it going??
I did okay yesterday until we went to the pool and I had a beer or two.
I came in and instead of eating my 2nd bowl of soup?
Triscuits and havarti.
I, didn't go overboard but still.
I promised to start new right there.
Today, is the day where you eat only veggies and soup.
After eating celery and tomatoes for breakfast I ate all my soup by 10:30am.
Then, I fought cravings and got a coffee with non fat milk.
I came home and ate a few cheese and crackers.
Not many at all.
I'm eating green beans.
Maybe a little bit, but the only thing I can give myself credit for is that I don't just go bonkers.
I cheatfor a minute then get back on the wagon.
More to come...
in an effort to really keep it real?
Me trying to buy some sort of tankini.
Yep, didn't do it.
Another reminder to keep on keepin on.............
