I WAS going to show pictures of my Joey's confirmation and my Matty's first little league game, but their brother Jim BORROWED the camera for a boy scout function and now it is missing.......Grrrrrrrrrrrrr.
Hopefully, it will turn up soon (and believe me, no one is hoping harder then the soon to be late Jimmy Pollhein!)
Until then, I want to talk about my latest adventure. Even though I have been exercising dutifully for nearly 2 months I have not lost any real weight. I had to do something.
I begged Joe to cough up the money for a tummy tuck, but he selfishly felt we needed to pay the mortgage for the next several months instead. SOOOOOO
I asked an attactive woman who frequents the Curves how she lost her weight. She used the South Beach diet to lose 30 lbs 2 years ago and has kept it off. When she puts a little weight on again (like she did during the holidays this year) she just goes back on the induction diet and takes it all off before weight becomes a (pardon the pun) big issue again.
After such a build up, I had to try it. It starts out rather like the Atkins, only with leaner cuts of meat and no dairy for the first 2 weeks, but later on you add more fruits and vegetable and the occasional helping of wild rice or sweet potatos, so it is not complete torture. When one gets to the 3 level (maintenance) it's actually half way normal! I can do normal!
So far, I'm down 5 lbs. Not a huge loss, but considering I have been stalled for weeks, it's a very hopeful sign! So here's to me! And all the lovely size 8 dresses I will be wearing this time next year. I can hardly wait!
