“A few years after my husband of 30 years left me I started dating a wonderful man who liked to go out to eat. Portion control and good food choices went out the window. During the year, my weight started to creep up because I was eating more at home, too. I put my 10s away and dragged out my 12s. He and I broke up, no more restaurant meals, but those eating habits remained. I’d graze through Harris Teeter or Costco, testing all the free samples.
During the Thanksgiving & Christmas holidays my 12s started getting tight. Time for action! I decided to start the Ultra-Lite weight-loss program.
I chose to be totally committed to this diet and not quibble about the rules. After the first week’s dramatic results, I was sold.
Week #1: Down 7.5 lbs, 3″ off my waist, 5 ½ “ total. Blood pressure went down.
Week #2: Down 11 lbs, another 2″ off my waist, 10″ total. Blood pressure still down.
By Week #6 I’m down 18 lbs, 6 inches off my waist, 14 ¾ inches total!
I am on week #6 of this diet and here are some observations.
Surprise, surprise…I have NOT been hungry on the diet. I had been doing what I called nervous eating. Snacking when I felt restless.
Surprise, surprise…I immediately felt an overwhelming sense of well being and optimism enter my life.
Surprise, surprise…I immediately had more energy!
Surprise, surprise…I am enjoying food more. There is considerably less food on my plate so I find myself cutting it into tiny pieces, and chewing it well. I want to get the MOST out of every morsel I put into my mouth. I am really tasting foods now instead of gulping down my meals.
I feel great. The size 8 jeans I bought only two weeks ago are loose. I can’t believe I’m thinking about size 6 already!
