Last Monday began a life-changing event. For a while I’ve been noticing the tighter waistbands and clothes gathering dust on their hangers because it’s just not that ‘comfortable’ anymore. I continued blissfully enjoying the gastronomic delights that is my life (read in denial) until two things happened: 1) I went to buy new pants and had to take a size up. 2) Regular bursts of ‘Is a congratulations in order? ‘ returned by my dismayed glare.
Back to the life changing part. I started this 14 day Metabolism Reset diet (which I will post a daily account of with pics) and after 8 days I can already see very pleasing results Besides losing the extra bit of weight, I am also training myself to make better food choices, especially carbs and sugar which are my weaknesses. The biggest and saddest fact I had to face is that metabolism does slow down after your twenties!
I said NO to these lovelies, or my protein feasting, water guzzling, egg popping and emotional roller coaster of a diet would be in vain. To make it worse and more traumatic, I’ve never been on an eating plan or diet before!
It started off mildly:
Then the weekend came, and things got rough. There was a celebration to be had, and I had nowhere to run but straight into the mother of all temptations.
Not a crumb passed my lips the whole day. When Monday came my resistance was low! I bought a box of donuts for guests we were expecting and on my way home, it took all my strength not to have one. This was so difficult!And then there was that can of caramel.
I can’t believe I got through this week, but if I survived that, saying no to even half the treats that come my way should be a breeze.
