I have lost 14 pounds so far. My goal is to lose 9 more pounds – 25 total.
Three-fifths of the way to my goal, I noticed my face is thinner, my feet no longer hurt (yes, my toes are skinnier), my high heels are more comfortable for a longer period of time and my girdle is not killing me as soon as it did when I was 14 pounds heavier, in fact, the last few times out, my foundation garments were no problem at all.
I started this diet in early November. On the eve of the holidays, I had lost about a dozen pounds. It was difficult to maintain that loss through the holidays, but I managed.
New Year's weekend, I caught a stomach flu and when it was all over, I lost a few more pounds! I don't recommend losing weight by catching a stomach flu, but as they say, "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade."
My dieting method is not ground-breaking. Cut out sweets, reduce my bread intake and don't eat in between meals. I seldom drink alcoholic beverages, so for me, there is no gain in avoiding booze. On weekends, I often eat only two meals instead of three. And I walk at least one mile per day.
And so it goes.
