I've been doing pretty well with my weight loss, unintentionally. Down 14.6 pounds right now!
That's nothing to sneeze at.
I've been extremely inconsistent with my fat fighting lately. MB and I were doing well until we had to let our Skye girl go. After her death, we both spent several days stress eating. It's about the only thing we could do.
It's funny because we weren't over eating or anything. We were just eating very poorly. There was no meal planning. No calorie counting. It was pretty much just 'let's get the hell out of this painfully empty house and go get dinner'.
We have both been getting back on track the past few days. A friend gave us the Herbalife program to try. She sells it and wanted us to be guinea pigs. It involves two meal replacement shakes and supplements 2-3 times a day.
I tried it for two days and I'm not sure I like it. The supplements make me feel weird. I'm all hopped up when I take them and I don't like that feeling at all. I do like the shakes because it helps me to cut back on my meals. I like having one with soy milk in the morning and then having a healthy lunch and dinner.
It's been a good kick start for me, but I think I prefer eating healthy over skipping meals and taking supplements. It works for a lot of people, but I just find that I feel deprived and I feel hungry. I don't like that feeling.
I think it's back to daily tracking and healthy eats for me. I'll still be using the shakes, but I'm going back to what I feel comfortable with - calorie consciousness, portion control and exercise.
I do have a gown to get my fat ass into!
