Alright! I made it through this one week without sugar, and I plan to keep going, but not continue with the blog posts as I am starting to get bored with this topic 😛
Here is what I ate yesterday (it was A LOT!):
12 oz. coffee w/ 6 oz. goat’s milk (from our goats)
3 eggs (from our hens) fried in 2 tbsp. butter
4 slices crispy fried bacon
A small sardine salad made with 1 can of sardines, chopped onion and dill pickle, and mayo (I prefer tuna, but sardines are more nutritious and aren’t canned in soy broth or soybean oil like most tuna is)
A “meat sandwich” with salami, mayo, and cheese
1 Vitamin Water ZERO
2 oz. fresh mozzarella cheeses balls
1 cup frozen “mixed stir-fry veggies” stir-fried with onions, ginger, and garlic in 2 tbsp. peanut oil
1 Sam Adams “Alpine Spring” beer
1 5 oz. glass Chardonnay
And here is my caloric breakdown from FitDay:
Starting yesterday afternoon I had this sort of deep-seated instinctual “driving hunger” pushing me to eat and eat and eat, but it wasn’t a “craving hunger” as I did not care to eat any sweets or chocolate or bread or anything like that. I wanted a feast, a big “Thanksgiving Feast” type feast, and vegetables too, I am SO BADLY CRAVING fresh garden vegetables! I love the Kroger Brand stir-fry vegetable mix, it’s a mostly satisfying substitute…I typically stock my freezer full when they go on sale (about every 6 months or so) for 88 cents each. I’m thinking that the increase in appetite has something to do with the breastfeeding, as my little man finally cut his first tooth during this week and he did a lot of extra feeding for comfort’s sake, causing an increase in my appetite. But this morning I haven’t felt hungry, not once yet.
Well, at the beginning of this “Week without sugar” I weighed 201 pounds with a waist measurement of 37 inches and a hip measurement of 48 1/2 inches.
I weighed myself and took measurements this morning and I am happy to report that I have lost a total of 8 POUNDS and 3 1/2 inches!! I now weigh 193 pounds, my waist measurement is 35 inches and my hips are at 47 inches….I also lost 1 inch in my bust.
A couple of weeks ago I found this really cool website where you can create a virtual model of yourself and try on different clothes…the model that you create is based upon your weight, height, and body shape…so I thought it might be a handy way to show weightloss without having to show actual full body pictures of myself just yet. I will do so, I have pictures of what I looked like just 3 months after giving birth…and I plan to take a picture of myself and the weight loss achieved after this “week without sugar”….and once I get to a size 12, meaning once I can get my butt into my favorite pair of sz. 12 jeans, I will then post real full body pictures on here. Until then, you’ll just have to make-do with these pictures 😀
If anyone has any questions about my “One Week Without Sugar” experience feel free to ask away in the comments, I will do my best to answer them as thoroughly as I can….
