Fresh Produce DSC07059It has been a bit over five months since I completed Ani’s Fat Blast program, which I would say was a success, really. I lost 8# during Ani’s program, for a total of 19# from January 1st, 2012 to sometime in mid-July, 2012.  Not bad.  To see that journey, click here.

Well, sad to say that I have gained back about 11# of all that lost weight. Rats! It is totally my fault; I know this. The sugar addiction just continues on; chocolate is really the culprit. I know that I can choose to say “NO” just once at the store and walk out empty-handed, but usually that is not the case, with weight gain being the unpleasant result.

Earlier this week, I was feeling so sick of the weight gain, and the bad eating that I went out and purchased some nice fresh produce to get a new start. Also this week, I learned about in Somer’s Green Smoothie Challenge and am excited to participate. She provides the recipes and it seems quite simple, so I am going to go for it. Plus, the ingredients required are generally what we have as stapes in the house. No nuts in her program, so the nuts I just bought will have to go on hold for awhile. They look good, don’t they?

Ok, we will see how this goes. Wish me luck and perseverance…
