My husband and I began following Jorge Cruise's "Belly Fat Cure" plan in March of 2011. Needing to keep my motivation up, and also wanting an archive to read back over, I decided to join the legion of those people already tracking their progress.

Just an update!

I'm really bad at coming back to this blog because I've been so busy lately! But I want to check in and say that things are going well. I've gotten a lot of comments over the past ten days about how various friends and coworkers can see that I'm losing weight. That always feels nice!

My birthday went well! We ate 0/0 for breakfast and lunch to make sure we had wiggle room, though I'm sure my sugars went over because I was trying Mochi for the first time (I had misinterpreted the label and thought a serving was 6 pieces, when actually there were six 'servings' per package, the serving was one piece and that at 15g sugar). So sugars were blown but carbs I think were actually safe!

I've been religiously updating my food journal, so everything's been on track there. I still end up having most of my sugars and carbs with dinner. I know weight loss would speed up if I could flip that to breakfast, but I don't have time to have a hefty breakfast in the mornings, and dinner is the deal we look forward to, so the indulgences are built in there. 

I bought new pants yesterday because my hip tattoo is showing in all my size 10 pants. :P Normally that tattoo is an inch below the waistband. I already had trouble treading on my pant hems, they don't need to drop lower!

When I look in the mirror I am really starting to be happy with what I see. :)

ETA: Just caught up with the "Me and Jorge" blog, and I'm signing up for the May Weight Loss Challenge! No more birthdays, no heavy holidays! No more excuses! My mom's birthday is this month and I'm sure she'll want her own ice cream cake but I'll be on the good girl list and just have a piece of dark chocolate and some coffee. I actually find it's more satisfying than eating a guilty pleasure anyway!

  1. I find that eating a good breakfast is always the best way to start your day. I love the 85% dark chocolate and rediwhip. I'm kind of hooked on those.
    Have a great day :-)
