The 30 day project almost finished up. It was the best I could do. I was a couple days short since I was in the hospital. All I ate for those two days was a cup of sherbet so there went the sugar. It was all I could keep down so I justified it. Anyways, 30 days is over. When I checked into the hospital, I was 10 pounds down. I felt great and pleased with the progress. Like I said, it was never about the weight but I have to admit, I sure liked how it felt and looked. I was a bit sad after the surgery from the swelling that my waistline was expanded again after all my hard work but it will go down again, I am sure of it. Thanks to everyone for their kind words, flowers, emails and meals. I feel loved. I really underestimated how I would feel and needed the help. Thanks.
As far as the 30 days, I am so glad I did it and think it would be a great idea to do it at least once a year. The sugar tastes way too sweet now although the chocolate my sister in law gave me was heavenly! I did stop at two squares though so there's progress. I don't crave it and that was the point. I did eat the heck out of some chips and tomatillo salsa my friend Kerri brought by. My stomach felt fine and my mouth was elated. I will continue to eat in moderation so that all all progress is not lost. I was sad that I had to have antibiotics in the hospital. Yeast loves that. I hope that my hard work didn't get destroyed after those three IV's.
I have lots of recipes I am still sifting through that many of you sent. I can't wait to try them when I am up and going again. I am doing my best to take it easy right now so that healing will be quicker. I am not so good at holding still so this is the greatest challenge of it all but the payoff will be great!
How are you all feeling? Did any of you stick with it? Did you see the results? Fill me in.
I have one gallon of Gold Label Coconut oil for $60 if you want it. I had a no show.
