I lost 1.8, hooray! I am now at 186.8 and at 21 pounds lost! I am almost half way there.
Ive been having some great losses these past weeks so Im glad I am making progress. This week seems to be a bit slower for some reason. I know I shouldnt complain that the scale is moving down, but I definitely was enjoying the big losses.
I am kind of upset today because when I went to go weigh in, the new assistant manager told me I shouldnt be eating a banana or apple every day. That they should be limited.
Now, I know I didnt get fat eating apples and bananas. I got fat because I wasnt eating any of those. So how is eating one or the other hindering my weight loss? I just thought that was rediculous. One thing I am really getting annoyed with is how LAWL gives you a booklet with foods you can eat in them, and then when you eat them, they say to limit certain foods or to not have it. Well then why do you post it as a food you can eat?
It also says in my book that bananas are low on the glycemic index and they tell you to eat these foods. So I said to her, well if bananas are so "bad" for you, then why are they considered low on the GI scale and you should eat them in moderation? She didnt have an answer for that.
Im just kind of angry that I am being told to change my fruit selection. As I said, fruit did not make me fat. I have been eating apples and bananas from day 1 of this diet and while I cant say that I know for a fact my weight loss would have been different if I hadnt been, I cant just eat grapes and strawberries every day. I dont like a ton other fruits and there arent many fruits that are easy to eat when you are taking them to work.
Well I guess this post didnt turn out to be so positive in the ending, but I guess my message is positive: That fruits and vegetables didnt make us fat. We all know what we were eating before and I bet none of us sat down and binged on an apple. I know whats right for me and what I can eat so I can continue to eat this way for the rest of my life.
