Whole30 Fourth Month Results

Okay, a drum roll would really be in order here. My suit that I bought a few months ago that was too tight, isn't tight any longer. It fits perfect, which means it won't be long before that one is history as well, and that's a good thing. So I got all bundled up for my trip to the pool on this 21 F morning with a wind chill of 13 F. Cold to say the least. So the scale showed I had gone down another 8 pounds, bringing my grand total to 26 pounds since I started this diet. I have 109 pounds to go, and you can bet I won't be quitting any time soon. I love the feeling that my clothes are getting too big on me. So how are things with you? Thanks for reading.

I'm happy for your progress on your diet! I instead, I am not overweight. However, speaking in kilograms, I'm close to 80. I am very hungry, because a medicine (Olanzapine), which almost daily, I have to take.

@just4him I would like to tell you that, I was three years, without taking Olanzapine. My weight had dropped below 70 kilograms! Doctor says that, Olanzapina for me serves for "fight" harmful thoughts, in my mental illness called OCD

Only the first month. I can look at what I can't eat and just pass it on by. Which I did last night when they brought a couple different types of fudge and baklava to the meeting.

@just4him It really isn't a "diet" but a way to eat. I found it to be easy as well when I did it. It is similar to how my husband and I still eat--lots of fresh green vegetables, proteins, minimal carbs, no beans, minimal pasta/dairy, etc.

Very good. Keep up the good work. So many are unrealistic about weight loss. If they haven't lost it all in a couple of weeks they get discouraged and just go back to their old habits.

Besides the great way I feel, I also need to lose this for knee surgery. So there is incentive, but now the incentive has changed to looking and feeling better.

@kobesbuddy I hope so. They say once you get past the first couple months the weight starts to come off. I hope that's the case with me. I would really like to see this trend continue.

You mean you don't miss the cold? Thank you. I'm glad it's nice there. This morning when I got to the pool I mentioned the temp and wind chill and the gal at the desk said, "You mean sunny and 83 right?" I laughed and immediately thought of you in sunny Florida.

@just4him Aww, thanks! It's supposed to get cold here over the weekend - 50 at night. I love to sleep with the doors opened and no a/c so I can hear the waves. As soon as we landed yesterday I felt hot, but that's because I was wearing warm clothes. Lol! Today I wore white linen pants and a matching sleeveless top and flip flops. I was fine until we walked by the frozen food section in the grocery store. Brrrrr!
