The bottomline: Technically my 28 days will end on Tuesday, but I won’t have time to measure that day so I did it today, Day 26. I have lost a total of 8 pounds and am down 11.75 inches. My goal was to lose somewhere between 5-10 pounds. I feel great about 8. The whole story: I am thrilled. I just did my measurements and read my goals from when we began. Technically my 28 days will end on Tuesday, but I won’t have time to measure that day so I did it today, Day 26. I have lost a total of 8 pounds and am down 11.75 inches. My goal was to lose somewhere between 5-10 pounds. I feel great about 8. Here are some of the things I am very happy about that have contributed to this: 1) – increased my water intake like Debra suggested. When I started, I was at 3 glasses a day. I have successfully now gotten 5 a day. I’m working on 6. That’s been harder for me, but I’ve been buying fresh lemons and putting in the water and that’s made all the difference. 2) – I have had a diet 99% of the time of fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, upping my protein to 30 grams each meal. One day I had 1/2 cup of Halo Top ice cream and I could tell the difference immediately. I’m lactose intolerant – that thick, gummy feeling in my throat and ensuing stomach problems were clear. So I truly don’t need it again. Halo Top does have a lot of protein and not much sugar, but I can’t handle the dairy content well. 3) – I increased my journaling to take a look at why I would choose foods that don’t serve me for emotional reasons. I looked at from a non-judgmental place, merely to observe and understand the reasons. 4) – I took a hot Epsom salt bath most nights, when I could and listened to Debra podcasts or inspiring audios at the time I would normally have a glass of wine. I am a big fan of Esther Hicks and listen as much as I can to get myself into alignment. 5) – I changed all my snacks to walnuts, almonds, hummus with carrots or yellow and orange peppers but I cut out most of the snacking anyway. 6) – I cooked at home every day and did not go out 7) – I cut the alcohol entirely. I will go back someday but not soon. I will start again when I know I have the willpower to live within the moderate limits I understand are best for me. 8) – I fully committed to the program because you can do anything for 28 days. TAKE AWAYS: 8 pounds lost, 11.75 inches lost, back into my clothes again and headed on to my clothes in the back of the closet that are one size smaller, self-esteem so much better, took back control of my life that sugar had gained. People are starting to notice something. They keep asking me what I am doing and saying I look good and more rested. I am just saying I’m eating healthy. Sleeping better. I have committed myself to 28 more days, with the idea that YOU CAN DO ANYTHING for JUST 28 DAYS! This is not a diet for me. This is a lifestyle that I choose. Because of my recent surgery, I am not cleared for exercise until April 8, a week yet. I’ll add that component next week. HUGE thanks to Debra for all and for naming the programs 28 day KICKSTART! It was exactly what I needed to turn the corner and start down a new path. My 59th birthday is in May. I had set a weight goal for myself and now I feel certain I will make it. Camille, almost 59
