I can't believe a month has passed since I designed my life change slim down plan. Drum roll, please! 10+ pounds this morning. My food still consists of mostly vegetables, potatoes, rice pasta, beans, a little fruit, wine, yes I said wine and oatmeal or certain cereals with rice milk. No dairy, no butter, no eggs and no meat, (except for the one bite of chicken Milanese). I had to try it for your sake! After all, I am the official taste tester!
For lunch the other day I had leftover steamed zucchini with roasted red peppers on a piece of 14 grain bread spread with lemon flavored hummus! I know it sounds weird to some of you but it was heavenly! No mayo for me. Hummus is my new BFF! (best friend forever for the technically challenged ones)
So, I just wanted to check in and measure the progress, not that you care but maybe there is someone out there who is struggling with the weight issue. It's been a lifelong work in progress for me. And it's not the easiest thing to do when you love to create in the kitchen! But it can be done with a little "food fortitude", enormous amounts of patience and a little help from my friends and family. You keep me accountable. Until 2 weeks from now on this subject. Let the cooking begin!
