Ok girls (and any guys who read this), let's talk. After seeing pictures of myself lately I decided it was time to take off a few pounds. So I ventured to the market and spent $$$'s on "healthy foods" and trust me, it's pricey. I did some calculation based on my lifestyle of little exercise and came up with a good plan (or so it appeared). Plenty of fruits and vegetables, little starch (breads, pancakes etc) and meat along with my milk. Yes, I must have a nice cold glass of milk a day and I'm not talking about that watered down 1% stuff. I want MILK!
No candy, cookies, cakes, chips etc allowed.
I have been on this stupid diet for 2+ weeks and have never been so disappointed in my life. I weighed myself and not one ounce has disappeared. Hubby is on the same diet and he lost 5 pounds! yes, I know the whole man/woman/diet saga, it ranks right up there with childbirth, exercise etc when it comes to the comparison and I'm not happy.
What I wouldn't give for a homemade oatmeal raisin cookie....
Forgive the rant, I'm on sugar withdrawal.....and if I see that husband of mine eating another donut, I'm smashing it and filing separation papers....LOL
