Since I started a diet that my doctor put me on, I have lost 10 pounds. That’s 10 pounds in less then a week. I know it won’t continue to be this easy but, I am ready to keep working to keep knocking more off.
So far, I have stuck to my diet every single day. I don’t think that I have stuck to a diet this long since I was in college and had to lose some weight for football. It is now becoming a bit harder because I am running out of options for side dishes. I have been eating broccoli and/or carrots every night. I need to find some additional side dishes that are creative, but still as carb free as possible. Low carb, not carb free.
I am thinking about trying a cauliflower pizza, but I’ve never done anything that intense. Please share some recipes with me that are low in carbs and also low in fat, aka, not cheesy.
I am losing weight, but more importantly I am gaining confidence. I don’t mean confidence in the manner that I’m now walking around saying, “damn, I look good”, but the confidence in myself to stick to a diet and to stick with it. My wife is not on the same exact diet as me. She is eating the same foods as me, but she can have rice, or pasta, or some starchy side dish, but I cannot currently do that. I am also not eating a dessert, just a handful of mixed nuts, but my wife can enjoy whatever she wants. I must say though, that I am proud of my wife also, because she is standing behind me in this diet and trying to eat just as I am.
The confidence that I am gaining is that I feel that I can look at the Girl Scout Cookies in the cabinet and look right past them. In the past, I would have just one, which seriously, has anyone ever had just ONE Girl Scout Cookie before.
I didn’t have much of a choice to go on this diet because I allowed my health to slip so damn far and I put myself in a position that I should have never allowed myself to get to.
This is for me, this is for my wife, my daughter, my friends and family. I want to be around a lot longer, so it’s time to start treating my body in a way that will help me get there.
If you are tempted to eat those Girl Scout Cookies, but you really don’t want to, reach out to me. Chat me up on Twitter or Facebook or Snapchat, and we can knock these pounds off together!
