Sorry I haven't posted in a while! Things have been a bit hectic around the office and home these past weeks. We moved into a new office and lots of techy IT stuff going on. I did get an XBOX 360 & Kinect this weekend. For the Kinect I have Adventures & Sports. I downloaded the demo for Biggest Loser & the Dance game. I enjoy the 360 & Kinect so much more then my Wii. I don't think I will buy the Biggest Loser game, I will opt for EA Sports 2. The EA Sports 2 game is only $39.99 at Target and comes with a heart rate monitor & resistance bands. The Dance game is super fun too, but I officially have no rhythm at all!
I want to give an update on my status with weight loss. I think I have hit a plateau because I haven't lost much at all this month and it isn't coming off in inches either. I am stuck at 237-238 lbs! I have lost 72-73 lbs and I think my body doesn't want me to hit 75 lbs lost because it knows another progress photo shot will be coming. Joking of course....
I have been asking around, reading different plateau theories and decided to go super low carb for 2 weeks to try to break the plateau. I am following the old school Stillman's Quick Weight Loss diet. Stillman's QWL diet is pretty much the original low carb diet dating back to the 60's. I eat lean meat, low fat cheese and eggs. It is low calorie, low carb and low fat. Of course it isn't healthy to not eat veggies, but I am only doing it from 3/6-3/19. I did buy some ketostix and I register in mild ketosis. More to come as my 2 weeks progress.
I am also quitting diet soda. I strongly suspect that my consumption on diet soda is playing a part in my plateau. I have read theories about how aspartame can cause some people to stall. Today is my first day of no diet soda and I have a headache. I have still been drinking coffee & lots of water, so it must be something in the soda.
A new message board friend gave me this awesome recipe for Low Carb Honey Dijon Dressing. Thanks CC!
