I’ve been slacking off on this blog lately, but I have been keeping up with my weight loss program. I’m rather amazed by myself actually. I’m usually buying boxes of Ho-Ho’s at this point in a weight loss attempt, but I’m finding it remarkably easy sticking to the South Beach plan. Grilled chicken salads are my salvation.
The week after my last update I only lost 1 pound. Depressing, but most likely linked to my period the previous week. Week after that I lost 3 pounds. Then came this week, the biggest surprise of them all.
On Easter I indulged in four Cadbury Cream eggs, for they were beckoning to me with their chocolate siren song. I devoured them and they were indeed yummy. I was then infected with my brother’s cold, which stopped me from exercising for the past 4 days. I was convinced I would probably gain weight for the first time since I started. But no, I lost 7 pounds this week! Chocolate and all! This just goes to prove that the human body is a strange, inscrutable machine. I can only guess that the cold helped contribute to this weight loss, or once again my period did something.
Also interesting to note, since I’ve started eating right and exercising I haven’t had menstrual cramps. Fan-fucking-tastic! That’s the best side affect besides the weight loss.
I’m down 52 pounds so far! Now, I just have to do that 3 more times.
