32 pounds down
One of the main reasons it's been so much easier sticking to Atkins is because I'm blogging about everything I eat. I feel accountable to everybody who reads this blog, so that really keeps me on track. Now don't get me wrong; sometimes when I'm in the grocery store I still look longingly at the pastries and cakes. But it's only for a few seconds and I don't feel the almost irresistable urge to grab them and throw them in the shopping cart. Instead I'll opt for fruits or sugar free jello.
I've learned so much from the other moms I blog with about how important nutrition is for our kids and why it's so important to create good eating habits while they're young. That's another big reason for the change in my eating habits. I want my daughter to learn that fruits and vegetables are so much better for us than fast food and candy. She eats candy and pastries rarely, if ever. She loves vegetables and I want to keep those habits strong for her.
So thank you to everybody who reads my blog and to all of the moms who share their experiences and creative ideas. You've really helped me when I've hit a block as to what to fix for dinner :-) Here's to another 32 pounds!!!
