Seven Days Down

So far so good. Its been a full week now without refined sugar or bread and I feel good! Its been a lot easy then I thought it would be. In a weeks time I have lost 8 lbs so I'm down to 122 lbs and my skin has seen positive effects as well. I have a lot more energy but I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss things. Today has been the first day I had real cravings for something sweet. I almost broke down for a nutrigrain bar but then saw the first ingredients are high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, strawberry puree, glycerine, and sugar. Uhhhh no thanks! then I craved one of those cheap little blackberry filled pies until I saw that they are 470 calories! The denver egg bowl at Jack-in-the-Box sounded healthy and REALLY GOOD until I saw the caloric count was 720 and 477 from fat! ewwwww way to ruin eggs! Although I haven't given up all unhealthy foods I just couldn't do this one! But right now I'd REALLY love a root beer float and cant stop thinking about it! HA! Hopefully the craving will go away! Id like to look really good in a dress for Mother's Day Tea tomorrow.
I had the desire to weigh 111 lbs by June 1st but I don't think its very realistic. This would put me at Jennifer Aniston's height and weight but I'm not sure its a reasonable goal. I'll shoot for 115 and see how it goes although weight isn't as important to me as how i feel. Wish me luck as I have 23 more days!

that's impressive, Rosa! Give me an example of your menu. I would think this would take careful planning.

that's so good Rosa! I've adopted my cousin Jenna's Eat Clean habits and have never found anything so easy and so satisfying. I'm not as diligent as her but one of the rules is no white sugar... I bought a naked juice the other day because it boasted "no sugar added" when I looked at the label... it had 24g of sugar per 250 ml it was a 421ml bottle! It surprised me how many things have sugar when you think they don't!
