Yay, it’s finally Friday! In one way I am glad the work week is over. In another way I hate for the week to be coming to an end. My son, Bryce, has been on Spring Break from Clemson, and it has been great having him home. Before we know it, Summer will be here and both of my boys will be out of school. I’m not so sure I’m ready for that either.
For the first time in a long while I am actually looking forward to shorts and t-shirt weather. Why you may ask? Well, because I have been kicking ass at this NOOM thing. Every day I take 10-15 minutes to read the articles they post to my App. I weigh-in every morning and log what I eat every day. I have also had very little of my beloved wine and beer in the last 2 months. I hardly even think about it any more. It’s funny how that works. I do still think about food, however. I miss eating any and everything. But, I don’t miss the way I felt about myself when I did. I don’t eat out nearly as much either. It’s hard to know how food is prepared when you do. I eat a lot of apples, cara cara oranges (if you’ve never had them, they are delicious), bananas, boiled eggs, frozen grapes and light multi-grain english muffins. Oh, and I can’t forget Halo Top and Skinny Cow Ice Cream. Everybody deserves a treat when they have eaten so well all day!
As of today I am down 24lbs in less than 2 months! I have to be honest, I haven’t been eating as many calories as they allotted me. If I did I think my weight loss would be about half of what it is. With being 52, menopausal, and having a slow as hell metabolism, I knew I needed to cut waaayyy back. Don’t get me wrong, I ain’t starving. I still have enough fat on me to get by for a while.
I am gonna do my very best to stick to this way of eating (and not drinking…much) for as long as I can. I would like to see the 120’s again without having some horrible disease and being at death’s door. It just feels great to be in control of this part of my life. Now I gotta tackle the rest of it. LOL.
