Chugging Along

I had my first day introducing healthy carbs back into my diet. I made a pasta side that I love, but made it South Beach friendly. It ended up being a BIG mistake and I overindulged which resulted in a bit of upward motion on the scale. A little dissapointing, but, you live and learn. I just know that IF I make that again anytime soon that I have to limit myself, but I think it will be a while before we add that back into the mix. I just don't want to risk it.

Today for lunch I made the boy and I some delicious wraps. I used the Flatout 100% Whole Grain wraps and topped it with some pre-cooked fajita diced chicken, lettuce, fat free cheese and a little bit of ranch. When I picked him up from school today he said that was his favorite thing in his lunch today and wants it again tomorrow! Score one for mom!! We also got to have some blueberries as well. They were fantastic. It is nice figuring out the way to eat again. Hopefully I will see some results from my effort.

The boy spent 2 days with his granny this weekend and when he got home I could definitely tell that he had lost some weight. I am more excited about his weight loss than I am my own. I think seeing the progress in him is going to be what keeps me motivated this time.

  1. Hang in there. Pasta is probably my downfall too. I'm trying to cull a few bad dietary habits myself right now - Neil
