My beloved Kasey and I are officially fed up with being fat and lazy! Although I prefer to think of myself as corpulent and shiftless. But the food lovers in both of us will not give up without a fight. The great compromise is of course eat what is both delicious and nutritious and eat less of it. My problem is I love food indiscriminately and in massive quantities; Kasey's is a similar conundrum. Upon careful consideration we realized that it is mostly a matter of eating less and trying to pick smarter food choices.
Example: Sunday we made sushi at home with lots of veggies, totally delicious, totally healthy, totally filling. Monday now in the mood for something more hearty I made us some veggie chili topped with plain Greek yogurt and green onions. Also, we try to order things to split, or sub the side for a salad, etc. Typically tricks and tips you heard a million times. I have heard them too.
It has only been a few days so I'm trying not to count my chickens but so far I have been feeling proud and satisfied. I put on some pounds since last year (approx. 20 lbs) and I most recently weighed in at 177 lbs (eeeekkk!!!!!) Yea, I said it. Even 20 pounds ago I wasn't where I wanted to be. So as I recently heard in a movie, it's time to nut up or shut up.
