So I am sitting here close to tears because I think " What is my freakin problem!!?? Why can't this be easier and why can't I tell my brain to stop eating??!!"
Whew....my brain is actually screaming that. Let me give you an example: Tonight while I was waiting for Shelby to finish playing in her bath I decided to start munching. Well I didn't have a hungry bone in my body, not one. I actually felt kinda stuffed from dinner still. Why I thought I had to have some cheese crackers is beyond me...I mean why would I even consider eating when i am not hungry?? ........My plain and simple answer....I need to have stronger will power. right?..pretty simple huh? I ate cause I was bored.......well then do something to stop being bored....simple. I mean If i took each feeling I had when i wanted to eat and dissect it I bet you would find my answer would be the same, just a plain oh simple answer.
I want to tell you about this book I bought about a month ago. It looked familiar to me and i actually thought i already owned it but come to find out it wasn't one I already had in my diet book shelf. ( yeah I know..we all have em though...admit it!) I am pretty sure this is the diet my mom went on last year and lost 20+ pounds in a very short amount of time. I remember talking to her about every other day and and she would be like " Oh, I lost another 3 pounds....and oh! I lost another 2".... I was like " What?? How is that possible??" So when I came across this book I found out the reason it sounded familiar is because my mom told me about ages ago. ( right mom? correct me if i am wrong on this please. )
So anyway I am really excited about giving it a go. The basics to this diet is........
* 4 day Anti-bloat jump start
* 4 weeks of 3/day meals that consist of 400 calories per meal and a 400 calorie snack ( tons of recipes in this book)
* exercise optional ( but we all know it certainly helps..and they recommend it of course!)
That's it! Seems pretty simple huh? Of course there are a tons more info in this book, but I cant type it all out. I am going to give it a go and see what happens. I will keep you all posted on how it goes of course and if all goes well... :)
