I realized the other day that I need to take a page out of Gideon's diet if I want to lose weight. If I ate the same type of things I feed him those last few pounds I'm hanging on to would come right off. Crazy? I disagree. Think about it.
Milk. Fruits. Vegetables. Barley, rice, and oatmeal cereals. A small serving of juice once a day. An occasional dessert style baby food. Nutritious. Preservative free. Most of them free of extras sugars. How could you not lose weight? It's essentially a pureed version of the Core plan on Weight Watchers.
I was down .2 again this week. That's the sad little number I'm repeatedly eeking out. It's a result of not really concerning myself with what I'm eating. Making a half-ass effort to eat more nutritiously and less processed and convenient. I love whole foods. I love to cook. There is no reason I should be treating my body to less than the best. It's just seems easier to sometimes reach for the garbage. Only 7 weeks until the end of the year and my goal was to have those last few pounds off. I better give this baby food thing a try.
Move over Gideon, Momma wants to share those pears with you.
Yes I am that anal.
Not only are they arranged by food types (3 rows of fruits, 3 rows of vegetables, 1 row of desserts), but they are also arranged by color. Sometimes I frighten myself. In my defense it makes it really easy to see what we have and what we need. Plus, I can make sure Gideon is eating a colorful diet and getting a variety of choices.
