I couldn't get Weight Watchers to work for me. I counted my points and still wasn't losing anything!! And I have to see INSTANT results or I get discouraged. AND I have a bit of a sugar problem. If I'm allowed to eat it, I'mma eat it. It's just that simple. I felt like WW was letting me have too many calories so I got back on South Beach Phase 1 on June 3rd and so far, I've lost six pounds. I had so much success with South Beach last year so I KNOW it works. You just gotta DO RIGHT OH MY GOD AND NOT EAT SKITTLES.
So I've gotten back to eating eggs, turkey bacon, veggies and lots and lots of low fat cheese, cottage, ricotta, shredded cheddar, string, those yummy little Laughing Cow wedges, Babybels, you name it. I had to refresh my memory on some SB-friendly recipes that I liked so much last year like ricotta cheesecake and egg muffins (which is more like a quiche than a muffin. Scrambled eggs, green peppers, ham or bacon, cheese, salt, pepper all mixed together and baked in a muffin pan). It really hasn't been hard to get back on track.
I only cheated once. At the movies with the girls from work last week. With Skittles.
Father's Day is this weekend and we'll celebrate my birthday, too, and I already told Mama months ago that I wanted pot roast, potatoes and carrots for dinner. I'll be cheating that day. I'll be off Phase 1, though, so I'll have a little wiggle room.
My goal for the summer is still to lose 20 pounds. 14 more to go! If I lose 14 more pounds, I'll weigh that lie I told on my drivers license. :)
