This morning I braved the scales. I started eating healthy on January 1 and as of this morning I lost 8 1/2 pounds. I was stunned, and very excited.
I did not count one single calorie. I did not measure one portion. I did not count one fat gram. I ate whole grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, meats, and very little processed foods. I drank water and milk. I ate when I was hungry and stopped when I was no longer hungry. I've prepared some delicious meals and never felt deprived at all. I did this for my health, but losing weight sure is a nice bonus!
