Last year I bought a workout called PiYo.
I signed up for Weight Watchers Online because they were having a sale. I love the new app. I love having someone to text and ask questions with immediate response. Plus, I don't have to attend any meetings. I've lost 2 pounds a week since the first week. I think I'll be doing this for life. I'm eating some really delicious food in the process. My husband has really stepped up to help with meals, and I'm eternally grateful. (He's down to his lowest weight in years during this process.)
I changed my Nutribullet Nutriblast to one cup frozen fruit and one cup spinach, plus water and one package of Stevia. I count the blast as 2 points.
It's still delicious.
I changed my supplementation as well. I was having horrific fibromyalgia nerve pains shooting through my body, especially in my chest. It felt like I was being electrocuted. I added a few things to help.
The complete Amino Acids are 4 pills a day. This means I take 9 pills a day. I'd love to not have to take any, but I feel so much better that I don't dare discontinue any of them.
I cut out all caffeinated drinks from my diet. Even my beloved tea. I never had a reaction to caffeine in the past, but they cause the nerve pain to flare up. If I take my supplements (and stay away from caffeine) then I usually don't have any nerve pain at all, or if I do it is brief and muted.
What do I eat? We don't eat out much. I eat grass fed beef, chicken, turkey, ham, swai fish, whole wheat, beans, vegetables, fruits, brown rice, olive oil, coconut oil, grass fed butter, eggs, mushrooms, popcorn, nuts, and I even enjoy potato chips once a day (kettle chips in olive oil). We eat homemade burgers and pizza. It's not that drastic.
The brown rice was hard for me to switch to because of time. I bought a cheap rice cooker and soak the rice all day while I'm at work. My husband turns it on when he gets home, and after I get home and work out - the rice is ready. You can do anything with brown rice. I make it plain for Chinese food, or I make Cajun rice, saffron yellow rice, and even Mexican rice with it. 1 cup dry rice makes 2 cups cooked. 1 cup cooked brown rice is 5 points. I'm not afraid of carbs anymore.
36 pounds is a major difference. Knowing that I'm in control and headed in the right direction makes me feel so amazing.
