Here I am, starting day 4! I am still very much in the mindset of following the 17DD and NOT CHEATING. I am down 4.4 pounds as of this morning and feeling very proud of myself as I dropped into a different "first two numbers" on my scale this morning!! I started the diet at 233.6 and I am now at 229.2! Just think of how nice it was to say I'M IN MY 20'S instead of I'M IN MY 30'S, lol. One small victory for Shannan-Kind!
I am really pleased with how easy this diet plan is to follow. I feel comfortable and like I have plenty to eat and plenty of options. This morning I ran into QT to grab a couple of bottles of green tea and thought about how normally I would head straight for the donut case if I was hungry or not. I can't believe how many times I ate crap like that just out of habit or BECAUSE I WAS THERE when I wasn't even really hungry. New me, new way of thinking... this morning the donut just seemed WAY TO SWEET and not appealing at all. I should start taking my morning donut money and buying a lottery ticket with it!
Hubby told me again this morning how he just couldn't follow this eating plan... his body needs those foods, lol. Oh well, we all have to be IN THE RIGHT PLACE to change ourselves. I have started hundereds of diets with awesome intentions at first and then just gave up after a few days because mentally I wasn't ready to do it. I'm tired of being the fat mom though, I'm tired of laying down on my bed to zip up size 22 jeans and then standing and being afraid to exhale! No more gigantic tubes of fat rolling over the tops of my jeans, no more constant pulling at my shirts. No more whispering at the spirit wear lady for my kids sporting events that I need a 2XL. I WANT TO BE CUTE AGAIN! I want for people to not look at me and say OH YOU WOULD BE SO PRETTY IF YOU LOST SOME WEIGHT... (okay, that's totally saying YOUR FAT and trying to put a complimentary spin on it, lol). I want to wear cute underwear with matching bra's and just be able to throw on a pair of jeans and a tshirt without worrying about disguising my NON LOVELY LADY LUMPS!
So here I go on day 4.... still feeling positive, still feeling confident!
PS: I still hate yogurt, lol
