When you gain weight I think your family and friends tend to ignore the fact and don't say anything, much like the story of "The Emperor's New Clothes," because they are afraid of "hurting your feelings." But, when you decide to go on a weight-loss program, everyone sighs in relief and then the truth comes out with plenty of really nice comments. At least, that's the way it is with our family!
No one wants to hear, "Gee, sure looks like you have packed on a few pounds." But we all love to hear the opposite, "Gee, you are looking good! How much have you lost?" Huh? I didn't think you even noticed!
Our 21 Day Challenge with Synergy Worldwide is coming along really well. In just a week, Frank is down over five pounds, half of his goal, and I am down almost three pounds. Darn these digital scales! They record every ounce.
We have been very consistent in our healthy eating this past week and haven't even missed all of the carbs and sugars. We are also counting calories which is a big help. I don't think you really realize how many extra calories you consume when you don't track them.
Veggies and cottage cheese is a great alternative to pasta or spuds!
Lettuce works really well instead of bread or tortilla's!
