Ten weeks... Still holding strong!

It's hard to believe that tomorrow marks 10 weeks since I went sugar/flour/wheat free. Every time I pass on dessert, or pizza, or pasta, I'm amazed that I'm able to say 'no' so effortlessly. Rolls at the dinner table? No problem! Tummy treats at BUNCO? Not for me!

I am able to appreciate how good these treats must taste without indulging. It's just not worth the risk of un-doing all the hard work I've put in.

As of yesterday, I'm down almost 33 lbs. the weight is still coming off slow, but I've learned to just appreciate the fact it's coming off at all. I'm trying to eat more calories, and most days I do ok. But some days I'm still pretty low. Still working on that.

I've had to work on a recent craving for potato chips, which I've never had an issue with before. And Coke Zero. I only drink water, but I love Coke Zero and have been giving in more lately.

I guess the bottom line is I'm still trying to get a hold on my disordered eating... And it's not all about sugar. It's a mind thing. Totally.

But I've been successful for 10 weeks, and I don't plan in quitting anytime soon!

I want to first congratulate you on your success. Not only and I a Sport and Exercise Psychology Consultant, but I too just completed a 3 month cleanse - no sugar, no dairy, no gluten, etc. Sticking to your plan is all about having the right mindset. I applaud you for your efforts, your success and I thank you for sharing your story:-).

Hey Hollie, you are looking good, girl! Congrats on the 10 week benchmark - that is awesome. I've found that everything ELSE tastes so much better now that it isn't covered up by the wheat/sugar taste. Fruit tastes like candy!

sheetal said...

Definitely can see the results ! You look fab as usual!

Chloe said...

I'd love to have the willpower to eliminate what you have from my diet, but for me that's difficult. I know I'd feel a lot better if I eliminated just bread, but again I'm not there yet. Maybe soon? Keep going, you're doing great.

Hello!

I'm Kateri Von Steal, and I am one of your newest "followers"... stalkers, I guess is a better word.

I write at:

I am constantly going up and down the scale as well... I've gone back "on" the proverbial healthy wagon..

Found your blog for encouragement.
Can't wait to read more!

Gwen said...

Hi! New to your blog. You are doing great! Isn't it great how giving up the sugar and flour ends 95% of all cravings for them, after the first 4 days or so? Good job!

a happier girl said...

You can really tell the difference! Keep it up! Whenever I get discouraged about how slow my weight loss is going I try to remember how far I've come since I started instead of how far I have left to go. It always helps put it in perspective.

Woah, I wish I could say no to pizzas and pasta like you do! I can hardly say no to them. Congratulations, it's really not easy giving up on things we love especially food! Keep it up!
