First with my awesome news....I lost 3 lbs this week!!! I'm still reeling! Learned so much about myself during the week.
One: I'm starting to be able to listen to my body. I think before I started I was eating so poorly there was a lot of "noise" going on that I couldn't tell the difference when I did good things because it was mixed in with the bad. Last weekend I spent Saturday and Sunday wine tasting. It took until Wednesday until my sugar cravings started to ease. My friend Sean, who's in wonderful condition, experienced the same thing when I asked her about it. That made me feel better! In the future if I plan on drinking I need to be prepared for my body's response.

In the meantime I'm celebrating! :)
My name is Kat and I'm a single mom of two young adults. I have not always been overweight but after having children and going through some personal hurdles, let it get out of control. My philosophy about eating is this: Eat real food. Real eggs, butter, veggies. Eliminating processed junk as much as possible. I eat butter, not faux butter product because I believe my body can better process real food rather than chemicals.
