Week Five of the Blogger Butt Smackdown is in full swing! How is everyone doing?? I've read your blogs, and I KNOW that there is A LOT of weight being lost out there in the blogosphere! Whether it means losing inches or pounds, it seems that all of the participants are making progress. YAY!!
I haven't been on the scales for two weeks, but there are some subtle signs that my weight is continuing to drop. Last Sunday, we were getting ready to head over to Mom x 2's house for the annual Superbowl party. Both pairs of my "fat jeans" were in the dirty clothes, so I grabbed my "skinny jeans" out of the closet. ( Around the end of December, I had attempted to wedge myself into these particular jeans. I. Could. Not. Breathe. ) Much to my surprise, they fit!!! I was even able to bend over without turning purple from lack of oxygen! It was a GREAT day:)
There is one thing with which I am beginning to struggle. Cravings. Keep in mind that I really do enjoy all of the healthy foods that I have been devouring for the past month. However, I'm starting to crave carbs. Bad carbs. You know, pizza, burgers, fries....all of the things that made me overweight to begin with? I feel just like a little kid who wants to hide in the pantry and scarf down a dozen chocolate donuts before anyone notices:/
I've thought about giving in to these cravings on a small scale, but I'm afraid it will lead to bouts of overindulgence and rationalization. Why would I want to do something that will set me back?
Tell me about your BBS progress, and tell me what you are doing to stave off the cravings. What are you craving? What healthy foods are you substituting for the old, fatty ones? Is there a way to make lasagna a "good for you" food?
Talk to me...
