The great thing is though, for the first time EVER, losing weight DOES feel better than food tastes. It's almost like I have an AVERSION to food. Don't get me wrong. I still LOVE to cook. I still love how things taste and textures and smells, but a taste is all I want. Sometimes the smell is enough. Food holds NO power over me anymore and it feels amazing!
I can't tell you the tips or tricks. I don't know how I turned the switch. Was it just the allergies? I don't know. But even foods I CAN eat, don't hold power anymore. I laugh in the face of brownies.
I stepped on the scale this morning, already knowing I was pleased with myself from losing the 5 pounds last week, not expecting more, praying it held steady. TWO MORE POUNDS. I almost fainted. I lost a total of SEVEN pounds last week. Making my GRAND total: 32 pounds!!
I can barely stay in my own skin, I'm so excited!
When you do plateau, what is the best motivation to keep going? Any “tricks” to break the monotony or stubborn scale?I Honestly have no idea. I remember gaining a bit a week or so ago, but I just kept plugging away telling myself its natural!
