I'm five pounds over my legal weight limit and it's a complete and utter drab. Who knew it would be so hard to shed such few pounds post the 20's and now well into the 30's. I considered starving myself - not literally, but that's an idea. I would lose the weight I've taken so much pride in storing this winter.
My mom says five pounds can easily turn into ten pounds and then 15 and OMG...I can why people just throw in the towel.
Unfortunately, I LOVE food much too much. So, I've borrowed the beau's diet plan from his personal trainer reducing the caloric intake of course. I'm combining it with my regular workout regiment, which is pretty restrictive now. So here's the deal and this isn't new information.
I can eat six meals a day - including 3 snacks, mostly veggies, proteins and a few carbs (brown rice, sweet potatoes and cous cous). Sounds yummy, right? Not so much especially since spaghetti with meat sauce is my absolute favorite. You get darn right tired of eating the same ole things. So we tried to incorporate new veggies I don't like - carrots, eggplant and zucchini. Still not that interested and I'm a pretty good cook - making most veggies taste wonderful.
I'm tired of watching the skinny girls on TV looking ultra fabulous in those little bikinis. I'm quite slender, but I can see how it's easy to spiral down quickly. Perhaps losing the 5 pounds in two weeks isn't so important. I should stop shoving food down my throat at every opportunity, but I love food so much.
I need new recipes. HELP! I'm hungry and just a little cranky. Metabolism seems to be picking up though and that's the ah ha. Pounds lost - a big fat zero. I'm hoping for a better outcome in a week. I'll let you know how it goes.
I'll take other tips too that allow me to eat spaghetti and run less than three miles three times a week.
