This week was a great one with the weight loss! I lost three pounds. I am officially up to 12 pounds lost. W00T! Can I get an amen?! I hope they never find me again.
I mentioned last week that I am giving up sugar for a month. It apparently worked wonders for me this week. Let's hope the momentum keeps going! You know the best part? I didn't count a single calorie. I did, however, have to give up one of my major vices. I admit I had a scoop of ice cream at a neighborhood ice cream social. I am a social sugar eater. But other than that I controlled myself. I am proud. On to the weekly pictures. I know that I have a lot of weight to lose but I was hoping against hope to notice a little more of a change after 12 pounds. Maybe I should do a slider thing with monthly pictures? Maybe then I can get a better look at my progress.
I look pregnant here. Boo!
One thing I noticed giving up the sugar is that within the first three days my taste buds exploded! Everything I ate had a very enhanced flavor. I noticed particularly a spiciness to my Pepsi Max (don't judge!) that I had never noticed before. It is a little sad to think I have been missing out on the true vibrant flavors of my food!
I honestly don't think I could maintain this strict restriction in my diet but I do believe I can get it under control. That is all I am hoping for. I need to remember that sweets are not supposed to be an every single day type of thing. They are supposed to be a treat.
