Take that, Fat!!

As of today at lunch, I’m down another 1 1/2 pounds. According to the scale at the gym, I’m 208, which is what I weighed in 1999. Wahoo!

This evening, I’m going to begin a high protein, low carb diet which was suggested to me by a coworker’s husband. It consists of a lot of tuna, sweet potatoes (1/2 at a time), green vegetables, egg whites for breakfast, and protein shakes twice a day. I’ve been eating a lot less anyway so eating like this shouldn’t be that bad. The only thing I’m worried about from this much protein is…uh…um…too much flatulence. Come to think of it, the people I hang around with probably won’t notice anyway.

    You know, people knock tofu (I did for a long time, too), but done right, it can fill that carby-hungry hole.

    I stir-fry it with broccoli pretty often.

    Can I just make one teeny tiny little suggestion?

    Start the fiber supplements (Metamucil, etc.) NOW.

    You will thank me later…

    See? I told you the same thing about fiber supplements. Not only will they help your digestion of high protein foods, but fiber also is a big helper in weight loss. Also there’s the additional benefit of lower cholesterol.

    Hint: Maalox with Anti-Gas, sweetie.

    And MAKE SURE YOU TAKE A GOOD MULTIVITAMIN and an extra B-complex, too!!!!
