it's a beautiful day!!


as of today i have officially lost 12 lbs.
i'm super encouraged & i feel great! the program that i'm on is the Ultra Lite Weight Loss Program. it's a lifestyle change of eating & portion control. a perfect balance of proteins & carbs during the weight loss period that's extremely effective.

my fear before i started this was that i wouldn't be able to do it, i wouldnt' be able to abstain, i would be unsatisified with the food that i could eat & to be completely honest... none of that has been true. this last week i've never been really hungry, i'm learning how to cook fresh veggies in different ways & they are REALLY yummy. my grill has gotten a really good workout these last 2 weeks. the one thing that i do miss is the coffee & i think that's just more a comfort thing than anything.

i'm finding that i have more energy, i'm not really tired, i'm not needing as much sleep & overall just feel really good!!

i hope i can encourage anyone out there that struggle with weight issues that you can overcome. try shopping in the produce section & see how you feel! it definitely pays to think twice about what we are feeding our bodies.
