I had a pretty decent week last week, numbers wise. At this point in my process, anything over 1 lb in a week is cause for celebration--& reflection. What was different about last week?
Last week I cut myself free from packaged snacks. This is not to say that I didn't eat any packaged or processed foods, but I didn't eat any of the following (that had crept back into regular rotation):
- 100 calorie packs of any description
- Special K bars touting their protein-tastic-ness
- FibreOne products
And sometimes I just want something sweet at 3:00 & that peach just won't do. This week I made cookies with oats & whole wheat flour & chocolate & butterscotch. One of those cookies scratched the sweets itch & had actual real food in it to boot. I ate a cookie almost every day this week. True story.
So, New Sara, let this be a reminder to you. Real food...real food...real food. Sometimes you forget & are prone to believe the lies on packaging that promise you the benefits of food in something made in a factory. Fat chance...literally.
