Hey everybody. So maintaining weight is a bit of a tricky thing.....it seems like I am either losing or gaining. Thankfully it is only a few pounds so I have control over it but it has been a little tricky to find the proper balance. Let me explain....if I stick with the 15/6 then I lose weight....i hit my goal and went a few pounds beyond to where my hubby said i should probably not lose anymore. So I started loosening up a little bit on the carbs. (never sugar, I always have less than 10g a day) It worked well for a little while but then after a few weeks I started gaining a few pounds. (It might have something to do with the fact that I have discovered dipping oil for bread!!) I can eat it in moderation but the past week or so I have taken it to a whole new level of indulgence. The bread I eat is within the carb count if I only eat two servings but I am a major bread addict, and I wasn't gaining weight at first, so I just started eating a little more than one serving here and there and then eating it way too often. I also discovered that I like wine with my bread......so you can see where this might lead. LOL. That combined with quitting smoking which also decreases the metabolism...I gained a few pounds. Not a big deal because I am back on strict counting as of yesterday and I alreeady lost 1.5 of it...I have 3.5 to go so really not something to stress out about but I would like to find the magic formula that would let me stay exactly where I want to....not losing too much but not gaining either. I think it is probably different for everybody.
I got a wild hair.....literally.....and cut my hair off. It was about two inches above my pants in the back and I had it cut into a forward bob or A line. I love it but I need to have my stylist fine tune it a bit for me. She was busy when I needed to get it done so I had to go to somebody with less experience. They didn't screw it up but they didnt put as much texture in it as I want and left it a little long in the back. I will post pics when I get it fixed. I am 37 days quit now and have been off the chantix for almost 2 weeks. I would have taken it longer but it was making my tummy hurt so I decided I had enough. I am doing fine off the Chantix and I am happy about that because it saves me money. ;)
So life is good here people.....I am glad to see some old friends return....you guys have been missed! This week I will be doing a few product reviews.....but I have to figure out how to post pictures here from my xoom....it always says wrong file type which is why my blog never has updated pics! I will work on it and see what I can do!
Have a great BFC day everybody!!
