Other benefits....I'm sleeping... through the night. This may have more to do with my decrease in caffeine than my diet but it is a related perk. I like coffee. I love flavored creamer. Coffee and I have a precarious relationship when I can't sweeten him up. I am down to about 1 cup a day that I drink with powdered creamer and Truvia. Not the same as my Skinny Vanilla Latte's. I stand corrected, however, on everyone that asked my to decrease my caffeine consumption when discussing my insomnia....apparently it does affect me that way. My Starbucks savings is going into a savings account for a Hawaii trip -for when I can put on a bathing suit and actually venture out of the house in it. (I will happily wave goodbye to the unileg!)
I also broke up with salt. This could explain the 15 pounds in 2 weeks. I salted everything...usually before I even tasted it. I salted meat, fruit, eggs...you name it...it needed more salt. I use it extremely sparingly now. My new best friend is no salt seasoning mix - I now use it on everything. It's an illness I know...but at least I'm looking for healthier alternatives!
So...I will continue to post how it's going. Someone asked me the other day what I will write about if I lose all the weight. I thought for a moment....I doubt Medifast can cure the crazy thoughts that engulf my head...or make the antics of my three boys any calmer...or make me the perfect wife, mother and nurse...Nahhh...there will still be plenty to write about!
Love to you all!
