So basically I can't ever go on a diet. Technically I am on Weight Watchers because I've paid up for three months, but you know I am not much of a counter. And I am totally a point bullsh*tter. As far as I am concerned a whole chocolate cake only has somewhere around 4 points. Right? Right!
Well as it would turn out the only way I am able to lose weight is to only eat what I cook from scratch. With the exception of pasta, which I buy, I only eat bread & sweets that I make myself. The Electric Dough Hook bread recipe makes me enough bread to get through the week, and a slice or two of ginger cake is very satisfying.
I make all my lunches, and most of my dinners. For breakfast it's yogurt & fruit, or if I am running out the door it's tea and toast. I've been packing lighter lunches, mostly veg and as a result I am losing about 2 pounds a week. I haven't really been too great about regular exercise, but I am definitely going to get back on that bandwagon.
The weight loss is really a bonus and I definitely feel better the less I eat refined foods. Not that I don't love Hostess Cupcakes and Girl Scout Thin Mints. It's just that they don't love me the same way back.
Ah, story of my life!
