Winner of the most intense SLOW-CARB moment
WAY TO GO YOU GUYS!!!
After stumbling upon the Slow-Carb Challenge here on the blog, Suzi was encouraged to pursue a healthier lifestyle. The past few weeks have taught her to prepare food that is healthy and filling.
Wait for it……. so far,
Suzi has lost 22 pounds!!!!!
She says she is not done:
“I look forward to the next couple of months…stay tuned.”
AWESOME JOB Suzi!!!
WHAT WEEK OF THE DIET WERE YOU IN?
WHERE WERE YOU?
WHAT FOOD WAS THE TEMPTER?
HOW DID YOU DISTRACT YOURSELF?
DID OTHERS ENCOURAGE YOU TO RESIST THE NON-SLOW CARB FOOD, OR WAS IT ALL YOU?
HOW CLOSE WERE YOU TO CHEATING?
“Here’s what happened. I met a friend at Panera for her to show me some logos she created for my new etsy shop.Panera was convenient.I just posted earlier in our Facebook group about how much I wanted bread. I was supposed to go to a friend’s house immediately after this meeting, so I decided to order a salad to go. Went up and ordered it sans cheese. Then the lady said, “Would you like chips, bread or an apple with that?”I hesitated for a moment and chose the healthy option… apple. Then I realized I couldn’t have that and said never mind.So I pay and go wait for my salad sans cheese. )I’m not bitter about not having cheese or anything!! Haha)My buzzer goes off and I went to grab my salad. Before the lady gave me the bag, she said, “Do you want a baguette or another side with that?” At that moment, I ALMOST just gave in. I really wanted bread. I’ve done a great job lasting this long. I deserved bread! But I quickly declined and left before I could change my mind. Whew, cheating diverted.”
What Casey did is SO hard… just say “NO” and walk away. When you’ve been SO good, when you are SO close to the end… why not? Well, because she set a goal and did not quit short of the finish line!
A HUGE WIN FOR CASEY!
I know that Casey is a rock star for 2 reasons:
“My habits are completely different…I’m adding fruit back into my life (fruit, glorious fruit) and I’m finding it feels more like a treat… I still love chocolate but when I have some it’s only a couple of bites, instead of the whole pan of brownies in just 2 or 3 sittings!…My portions sizes are also much smaller… I fill up much quicker on much lighter food…If I’m still hungry when I’ve finished my meal… I find something that grows in the ground or that is high in protein to satisfy the hunger… I have confidence again!” Rochelle
“This has been the easiest way of eating for me. I DO NOT CRAVE anything. I DO NOT get up in the morning thinking of where we can go eat today. I am not obsessed with food anymore.” Carole
“I decided to let my clothes do the measuring for me. I have a favorite belt I wear. When I started I had it in the first hole, now I wear it in the 3rd hole.” Teresa
