I started eating healthy on November 4, after getting a little shock at the doctor's office. Last time I checked, I lost 14 pounds. I plan to lose 10-18 more.
I'm pleased with the weight loss, looser clothing, etc. But it requires constant vigilance. Salad instead of fries. Dressing on the side. Frittata instead of pasta. No bread. No cookies. No booze. I do feel better eating this way. But it's a lot of work.
