My Sister M has recently began her journey on the Belly Fat Cure. To read all about her and her story, click HERE:
Ok down 1 ½ boxes of butter (1 ½ pounds). So while it’s been slow going, it has been steady! So yay for the turtle, right? I’ve ordered my GG Crispbreads and am patiently awaiting. My husband actually had his first colonoscopy yesterday and had a DEEP colon cleansing. I attempted to support him with a liquid diet on Thursday, but fell a bit short with my string cheese and handful of pork rinds. So now, I realize I have this fear of being hungry. Note: Swanson’s organic low sodium vegetable broth tastes AWFUL. But it really made the chicken broth taste wonderful!!
We’ve got a blizzard forecasted in the Midwest today, and I am fighting the urge to cook up batches of homemade chicken and noodles. I actually got out and walked 1 mile both Tuesday and Wednesday this week and was not sore afterwards. My hip flexors hurt during the walk and then my lower back would start freezing up from hunching over. So I decided to lean back (into the pain) and suck in my stomach and it helped! Being obese is soooo…inconvenient. I look forward to the days of pain-free walking. I’m going to ride the exercise bike today and tomorrow
I’ve got all the ingredients to make Jorge’s brownies, but Amber’s afraid for me. If I DO make them, I will cut them in portions and FREEZE all but one serving….I promise! You know, at the very least, the walking helped me by investing more blood, sweat and tears into my weight loss. I worked hard to burn those 150 calories and I wasn’t about to throw it away. Do you find that exercising helps you buy investing more, or makes your more hungry?
Congrats Sister M on the 1.5 lbs this week! That is great!! Keep up the good work! We were both so busy this week we barely spoke. But I am all over those GG Crispbreads too! Maybe we will split a case of them! Did you track your food intake finally? Next I think you should post a few days with your weigh in.
I don't think she should make the brownies just to have around. Maybe for her upcoming birthday instead of cake. I have seen so many people come and go on this diet, and my experience is that that people who make those brownies don't last on the plan. There is no nutritional value whatsoever in those brownies, and they are a trigger food for so many people, myself included. Have the shakes and approved chocolates in small quantities instead.
Have you all made the brownies? I won't link to them and wish I had never sent her the link! Bad, bad brownies....
