Fussing and fretting will get me now where, for real!

Sunday, December 16, 2012

I have just added a few new (recent) pics. For the first time in I can't remember when, I actually feel pretty today. Maybe it's the new haircut or maybe it is the reduction in stress since my last final, but I feel like I look, O.K. While the scale hasn't been playing the same game I am, I have made a very conscious decision to just let it be. I may not even weigh again until the new year (note I said may). I have been playing around with the same 5 pounds since August 4th despite a multitude of changes to shake things up. I have given up red meat, including pork (so many people don't think of pork as red meat, funny...that ad campaign really worked). I have given up nuts and cheese as well. My husband, the cook, is a bit unhappy at all of this and like me, isn't seeing the results I am trying to obtain. I am still holding calories at 1200 and working out 6 days/week. Something has got to give here sometime. My body has been "stuck" at 200 ish like this before, many times. In the past, this is where I gave up. Not this time. It isn't over. Play on.

    You do look great! I don't know what your diet consists of but off the top of my head I'd say increase veggies and decrease carbs. One thing I've tried lately is cutting out gluten. It's not real easy but can be done. I noticed a difference but am not fully committed to it yet. But I figure it's such a huge lifestyle change that I should probably work my way in to it. I got to figure out how to go without all my usual wheat things. It's like in almost everything seems like. However I do feel better if I avoid it. Try looking into it online and see what you think.
