I am getting asked, So what are you doing? What are you eating? What diet are you on? Then when I tell them I am eating healthy and no white flours, no processed foods and no added sugars..They look at me and say Oh...Now I know it isn't what we all want to hear...But the magic pill isn't out there and there is no miracle food out there to take or blink your eyes four times for 30 pound weight loss...SORRY it just isn't out there..
I also never liked when people would say you have to want to loose weight to do it..Do you know anyone that is heavy that doesn't want to loose weight..
For me, something just happened to me, I just started watching for my sugar I was just diagnosed with..then making small changes.. and one thing led to another and pounds started coming off.
Like in the picture above I STARTED EATING AN APPLE A some of you it might not be a big thing.. to me I never ate fruit..some allergy issues..and not a choice I went for.

I really like Kushi products..they aren't filled with artificial junk and they taste good and are great to keep with you at all times..Yesterday I had the choc. coconut bar in the afternoon for a snack..ANOTHER THING I STARTED DOING IS EAT SOMETHING (try and make it protein)EVERY 2 1/2 TO 3 HOURS... Ex. breakfast, snack,lunch,snack,dinner,if needed snack...along with WATER!!!!!
I am so not a breakfast person, now don't get me wrong I love breakfast food but I would sleep in when I could and get up go without eating till around 1 or 2 in the afternoon..then I would eat then eat again my dinner and if dessert is there have that...What is wrong with this is all my calories are at the end of my day not much time to burn off, plus I didn't get my metabolism started in the morning to start burning off calories..MUST EAT BREAKFAST
I had about 2 cups special K fruit and yogurt with 1 cup of skim milk. Other days I would eat oatmeal cooked (not instant) with 1 teaspoon of raisins an 1 teaspoon of honey along with some cinnamon. Kashi cereal is very good, but I had ran out..I mix some of them. Or scrambled eggs with veggies or chives use olive oil, a dash in the pan...can add onions,red peppers, mushrooms, is endless so the taste is always different.
I love avocado's..yummy...And yesterday for lunch I got to have some...guess who serves them now...
SUBWAY does...I had a chicken 6 inch on Italian with spinach,green pepper,cucumber, tomato, salt and pepper with a tad of light mayo(in beginning didn't use mayo) also shredded cheese a little bit and AVOCADO... they will add that now it is a 50 cent charge but well worth it. then I asked for lightly it warm but not hard and crusty...drink WATER.....
My dinner was yuck I got a bag of grilled chicken veggie something from Sam club and Mike and I did not like it..Why because it had sooo much Oregano in it, that is all we could taste. So I got my cheese and chive egg beaters out and made me some of those...then my apple in the evening..
