In a nod to Chile's Trim the Fat Challenge from last month, this week's Project Nowaste post is talking about well, trimming the fat.
As such, how are you all doing? I know I checked in a couple weeks ago to see how things were faring on the "consume less, lose weight" part of Project Nowaste. I'm hoping that people are having some success since the last time the reports coming in were mostly grim.
As for me, I've gotten back on track and have managed to lose 5 pounds since the beginning of the year. It's nothing spectacular, and I'm quite aware of the risk of it sliding back on, but it is motivating. How did I do it? Good, old fashioned calorie counting. Exercise is still mostly out since, even though my back is okay now, I have a fabulous chest cold. Talk about consumption of a different sort.
It's seems like we are always constantly bombarded by holiday goodies in grocery stores. Perhaps this is another good reason to shop at farmers markets. You usually don't see the holiday displays of processed sugar foods! February has Valentine's and Easter is coming up fast. Not that we should be expecting large Easter baskets as adults, but the enormous displays of candies, chocolates and childhood favorites makes it hard to pass up.
So, how's the adipose attrition on your end?
