I’ve been 5 weeks on Judy’s -my friend who is helping me lose weight-  weight loss plan, as it seems it is working very well with me,  i have lost one kilo in one week,  i like it , I’ve been eating every thing i love from chocolates to French fries, ice cream to haystack salad and still losing weight without being hungry, or having cravings to my favorite foods or even have the feeling of ” why everyone is able to eat anything they want and everything is a no to me”  .

Today her laid back system has been changed, before when ever i crave a chocolate, i would eat a bite of it, drink water, wait for a while or go work out then i would take another bite .. at first  i used to eat the whole bar, but after couple of times a bite would do it for me and i don’t feel like buying chocolates when ever i see them , even if eat it i don’t feel attached at all, i even started to eat fruits instead.

Judy didn’t let this pass.. now since i started to have these cravings switch from fatty foods and rich in sugar to more less tasteful food.. she changed my eating plan..

Early in the morning:

When i wake up for morning prayers, i would drink 2-4 glasses of warm water almost 1 liter

Breakfast:

I start my breakfast with any kind of fruit with a cup of milk .. then a cup of water

After i get dressed and ready to leave, i would eat anything i feel like “eggs, waffles, a sandwich” with the suggested portion for every type of food.. i should talk about that later.
Snack: if hungry i would have water  – ofcourse- if i had craving for something sweet then i would have from 3-5 dates OR if my cravings were something salty i would have carrots, celery or cucumbers

Lunch: a piece of protein, 3/4 a cup some carbs, 1 1/2 cup greens  and any kind of juice with less than 3 grams of sugar and less than 80 cal.

Snack: yogurt, a fruit or three bites of any cravings

Dinner: a piece of protein (fish or turkey) , 1/2 a cup carbs, 2 cups of greens

Dinner should always be before 7 pm .

But on Fridays, breakfast will be a pomegranate.

My desserts should be dates or fruits (2 pieces per day)

I’M HAPPY !

Ready for easter

Lifestyle: ACTIVE

—-

It has been 24 days.. lost 5 Kilograms.. still following up with Judy’s weight loss life style, with 1800 Calories, 15 grams of fat per day, 60 grams of carbs per day, two servings of fruits a day, three-5 cups of vegetables per day…

Workout: 30 minutes cardio every day, 3-4 times group workout  as in water exercise, yoga and stretching.

I’m happy ..  eating everything i need .. and enjoying life without having the ma7rooma feeling, that i’m any less from other thin girls who can eat anything they want..

On the emotional side of this happiness, husband is loving the touch of my skin and the glow in my eyes. I’ve noticed with the fruit intake and vegetables my skin is clearer and brighter as well as my eyes..  but i have to admit recently i haven’t been going to the gym, just doing the normal indoor crunches and weight lift that Judy gave me as well.

For now Happy Spring and Happy Easter.

P.S. if you have any questions please feel free to ask 🙂 if you want to join me and lose some weight that would be wonderful.
