I made myself get on the scales this morning, and I'm down 3 lbs from last week (just 7 more to go to be at my lowest this year).
What's been different??
A little daily exercise, no diet drinks, more water and vegetables, very, very low grains/legumes. I'm not counting, measuring, etc. this week. I'm just making an effort to lay off the foods I know don't help me!
Wah-lah! My body responds by giving off some of this excess weight!
I haven't been 'perfect' (I don't like that word...and it means something different to each of us). I've just made simple changes from meal to meal.
Some cooking inspiration came from: www.kaylynskitchen.com. I generally see recipes as a method and then tweek them to my liking. I really liked her Chimichurri recipe and others.
