Weight Loss Journey: Week 1

Ahhh, 42 weeks until I get married? That’s crazy! And like every bride-to-be I am looking to lose some weight for the big day. Not only for that, but my health as well. I though it would be fun to document my journey and maybe inspire someone else out there!

One of my grandmas suggested we try the ‘Eat fat get thin’ diet. She bought us the book and everything. It’s an interesting read if you ever get a chance. He basically says as a society we have been taught to view fats as bad, but they are actually good. The whole book is filled with all the science behind it.

Unfortunately it doesn’t mean eating donuts and cookies all day like I thought 🙁 But it isnt so bad! In a nutshell it is basically a paleo diet. If you don’t what that is, think about what you would eat before processing stuff become a thing. So no processed foods. No grains, no sugar, and so forth. A ton of meat and veggies! The best part about it is you don’t have to count calories, which is always the sucky part about dieting. You can eat as much as you want of the things you can have! Meat, veggies, and berries is about it.

I thought it would be cool for each week me to go over how the past week went, go over what I ate for the week, and weigh in at the end. So here it goes!

Final thoughts for the week: Not too bad! First couple of days were rough. I have to talk myself out of eating sweets everyday, but not too bad! It is a lot of veggies. I like not having to count calories, if I am hungry I eat. I also eat a lot of eggs lol.
