That's My Story......

And I'm sticking to it!

I'm late with my Perfect 10 Diet update this week!

On the scale, I stayed the same.

Better than gaining...

But I wanted to lose!

The truth is, the 3 week induction plan, or Phase 1, is tough. No sugar, no caffeine, no snacks, no processed foods....

I was doing well and then....my lady hormones kicked in, if you know what I mean. Of course, I gave in to those callings and cravings, and I paid for it on the scale.

Not only that, but I totally lost control and I'm still struggling to get back on that wagon.

The good news is I am moving to Phase 2 of Perfect 10 which allows for whole grains. I think that will help. As much as I wanted to stay on task, I really got tired of eating my sandwiches on lettuce!

The truth is, I do feel better when I limit sugar, caffiene, and processed foods. I like eating fruits and other 'real' foods. I actually prefer natural peanut butter, and I even like it on toasted whole wheat/whole grain bread.

I took the Perfect 10 blogger challenge, 3 weeks in Phase 1. While I can't claim it a complete success, I did make several positive changes and discoveries. And I lost 8 pounds!

So, I'm climbing back on the wagon today.

Now, if I could just find the motivation to exercise.


I know exercise is a must if I want to find a successful balance.
