I am pleased to announce that I have started losing weight on our new way of eating...just a little bit, but enough that it's definitely "losing weight" and not just the normal day-to-day fluctuation. I'm highly tempted to keep with this experiment after a month for that fact alone!
It's so interesting to me how specifically I have to target my weight-gain issues in order to actually lose any. When I was a teenager, I lost 50 pounds in 6 months by cutting out second helpings and most sweets. Now, I've cut sweets again but I've also cut out grains, especially snacks between meals. If anyone reading this is trying to lose weight, you may want to seriously consider what you're doing to gain weight to begin with, and then target that specific thing. Cut it out entirely if you struggle with self-control.
