|How I REFUSE to feel
|My route of choice
Okay, you get the idea lol. I have had a rough couple of weeks. I stayed the same last week and lost 0.2 this week. I haven't lost any inches in a while and I don't comfortably fit into a size 12 as I had hoped (even though my 14's are still too big) so I am feeling a little bit frustrated.
BUT I can pinpoint reasons for why I haven't lost. I know part of it is my fault directly, part of it is because I am getting used to not breastfeeding anymore and having 7 less daily points, part of it is the 20lb engorged breasts I have since I stopped breastfeeding along with the calories that I'm not longer burning that come with the territory, and part of it is because I just enjoy too many BLT's (bites, licks, and tastes).
But the only one who can change any of that and continue along this journey is ME! So, as you saw above, my plan is to cut out the sweets (I eat entirely too many just because I can count them as my points), cut back on the cheese, get in more exercise, and hope for the best! I refuse to settle for less.

- Green Tea (I've heard great things about green tea and weight loss - definitely getting some!)
- Soup - Eat less and burn fat faster by having a bowl of soup as an appetizer or a snack. According to a Penn State University study, soup is a super appetite suppressant because it’s made up of a hunger-satisfying combination of liquids and solids. In the study, women chose one of three 270-calorie snacks before lunch. Women who had chicken and rice soup as a snack consumed a n average of 100 fewer calories than those in the study who opted for a chicken and rice casserole or the casserole and a glass of water.
- Grapefruit - doubt I'll be eating it unless I find a good way to enjoy it because I personally don't like how tart it is.
- Apples and pears
- Low fat yogurt
- Lean turkey
- Hot peppers
Cheers to some pounds and inches getting the boot! Focused.
P.s. When I started typing this post I was completely down and out...by the end, I managed to motivate myself, which leads me back to a FB status that I posted earlier:
