Sunday I read The Subfertile Frugalista's post and I decided to start my "lifestyle" change on Monday. I say lifestyle with quotes, because I am not pressuring myself to do this forever. I want to take it day by day or hour by hour if I need to without beating myself up over it.
The first two days were by far the worst. I'm talking headaches and withdrawal symptoms galore! Have you seen the commercial for the show Addicted To Food where the black lady is throwing up and crying? Before I started this change, I thought drama queen, but those first two days, I TOTALLY wanted to walk around the house doing that. Slowly, it's been easier every day that passes.
Tonight when we went out for dinner, I ordered an unsweetened tea and I LIKED IT. Of course it would taste EVEN better with as if it dropped the UN and added some sugar, but I drank two glasses and didn't complain.
I'm so proud of myself. I've ate healthy before, but I never took into consideration the PCOS and sugar/carbs effect. I'll be honest and say I've only exercised one day this week, but I hope to get back to doing some more this weekend and into next week. I'll probably start keeping a food log and posting it once a week in case anyone is interested in doing the same thing and need ideas on what to eat.
So, do you want to know how much weight I've lost since Sunday, five days ago?
7 lbs! I realize most of it is likely water weight, but considering I'm not taking diet pills and I've changed what I eat even more, I am totally taking credit for sticking to it and losing the weight.
I'm excited to see what tomorrow brings. I CAN DO THIS! (And you can doo, if you want to!)
