Weight is an up and down roller coaster ride isn’t it? You lose. You gain. You lose again. You gain back even more. I lost a few pounds last year and kept about 5 of the 20 I lost off. Something to be thankful for I guess.
My daughter and I are now on a quest to quit sugar. Oh, we still eat natural sugars like fruit, but we are even giving up diet soda. It has a lot of salt and can make you crave sugar all over again. I’m cooking more at home–economizing as much as cutting down on calories, but I like to cook and then I can better control my sugars too. I think it might be good to post some recipes or things that work as I go along, so check back for updates.
This week I’ve been eating a lot of soup. Not the soup diet, just different kinds: chicken and vegetable, tomato, bean, potato. Yeah I know, that’s a lot of soup. Tonight I decided I needed a change, so I ate a little chicken salad with crackers. Delicious! Especially when you’ve been eating soup all week.
Today is DAY 4 for me, DAY 6 for Dolly. Wish us luck! Maybe I’ll take off another 20 and go down 5 more. 🙂
