At the beginning of January 2015 I decided to work at healthy eating to get rid of some of the cookies and cakes and pies and big family dinners that had contributed to the pounds creeping up.
Last Saturday, January 25th I woke up and decided to go back to what I knew worked to lose weight. Strict on the Dr. Bernstein diet. I have done this successfully in the clinic and at home before so it seemed the obvious solution.
It worked fantastic and, even with two days of minor slip-ups, I am down 5.2 lbs at the end of my first strict week.
I hit my first personal goal and am well on my way to reaching my second. This is definitely motivating me to continue and I plan to do (at least) one more week to get things back under control.
Also, the most interesting thing I have noticed is that, although a very restrictive diet, I have never eaten cleaner than when following it.
