One Month Down...

I did it!  I've gone an entire month without eating a single piece of candy, chocolate, brownie, piece of cheese cake, etc. etc.  Although I'll admit that I ate a pop tart once.  I didn't even think about it, after I ate it, I realized it probably has 3x the amount of sugar in it than a brownie.  Oops.

I didn't know how long I'd do this for.  Certainly not an entire year.  Maybe just for the month?  Maybe until Valentine's Day??  But nope, I've decided I'm going to do it until I get to my "ideal weight".  Who knows how long that'll take.  Hopefully not longer than the year (but probably just a couple of more months at the most!)  

What I've learned:  Half the crap I eat is just not necessary.  I find myself opening the pantry a couple of hundred times a day and getting a couple of chocolate chips.  That adds up to 146,000 chocolate chips every year, and I don't even like chocolate chips.

I also learned that you can wash your hand off if you get frosting/ cookie dough/ brownie batter on your fingers.  It doesn't require any sort of licking.  Who knew?  

What I've lost?  Ten pounds.  It was really easy.

Wow! Good for you Brittany! I've been thinking about doing that too... I don't know if I can go cold turkey like that... I need to work on my willpower.

You go girl! (I say as my mouth is full of cookies). "Why am I not losing weight yet?!" I need to jump on the anti-sugar wagon or something!

Meg said...

Wow Brit, I'm pretty impressed! That's amazing! Maybe i should try that.

Betsy said...

Good job Brit! Way to be strong!!! I do fine if we don't have any sweets in the house, but if we do... I have no control! :)

Michelle said...

Stefanie said...

Way to go Britt! You have more will power than I do, I don't think I could do that for a week. A day maybe but not more than 2. Good job keep it up.

I just realized that you wrote someting in teeny tiny letters in the middle of that blog. Still you did a great job now you just have to learn to love veggies:)

I am known as a chocoholic. I would love to have the willpower to stop, but alas I have an adiction and I am not afraid to admit it. Did you pick up something else to eat now?

Candi said...

You're an inspiration to us all.

Kate said...

BETHANY YOU SUCKER! 3 days? I haven't been checking up on you like I should have. I had about 20MnMs today.

Anyway, back to you Brits... seriously? 10 pounds in one month? Okay, starting tomorrow, I'm back on the wagon. No bread, no potatoes, no sugar. You're the meaning in my life, you're the inspiration.

Way to go Brits! I still say that almost dying in childbirth is the best way to diet though! Heck, I'm forty pounds lighter! LOL! Just kidding, I don't really recommend it as the most enjoyable diet plan. It does work though. : )
