Let's keep this post real. I am very overweight. It started with my first child and hasn't stopped. I need to change a few things. My diet wasn't so much about piggin out on ice cream or pizza but more about PEPSI, to the tune of 6-7 cans a day. Oh, and the wonderful world of white bread. A perfect snack would be a can of Pepsi and a slice of white bread. YUM. Okay I have issues.
I am currently holding the soda down to one can a day and I have traded white wheat for whole. I of course in two weeks have lost zero pounds:( That ticks me off. But on to the rest of my family's new diet plan.
The NO NO list:
No white wheat(except special occasions)
No soy (I am allergic)
No things with ingredients I can't pronounce
The CAN list:
Almond milk for me
Our own eggs
Lots from scratch
I am wondering if I need to take a herbal supplement or something to jump start my metabolism. I though for sure I would lose at least some when I quit drinking soda, so maybe there is something else going on.
Hubby is on this new way of eating and is loosing lots of weight. I am still not sure if I am happy or envious about it.LOL
The only problem I am having with this new program of sorts is I have no idea what to do for snacks. Fruit is not cutting with the kiddos anymore and I am out of ideas. So if anyone happens by this blog and has any ideas please let me know.
On a different note, I know that I never post anymore, but I have some post coming, I promise. I hope to get up at least a post on our homeschool year and some pics of the kids in the mountains in the fall. We love to go riding around the ATV paths around here in the fall.
