The #FatBlast50 ended last Saturday and yes I did go out and celebrate by eating:
(1) Fresh baked bread slathered in peanut butter
(2) A Hero burger and fries and what was probably the best god damn Diet Coke of my life
(4) Wine and tortilla chips with con queso
Basically, it was a day of food debauchery. But by Sunday morning I had had my fill and was back to eating normally.
The entire process of removing grains/sugar from my diet was eye-opening for me in so many ways and I’ll write a post about that but I know y’all are probably wondering if I lost any weight because that’s the first thing people ask me ALL THE TIME.
So yes, I did lose some. It wasn’t my main focus but I get why people are interested so I’ll give you the run down. As you can see in my very flattering pictures there’s a definite change and no, there was no belly sucking in happening. I was too busy thinking about the peanut butter that was about to come my way.
Pounds Lost: 6
I also lost 1.7 inches off my stomach, 1 inch off my hips, 2 inches off my waist, and 1.7% body fat.
Could I have lost more if I had done the 50 days without any ‘cheating’ – also known as my Saturday night wine.
Errr, yes. Probably. I guess. But the fact is, I’m not an all or nothing gal and if I’m out with my friends celebrating a birthday, Imma gonna eat the cake. Same goes for my Saturday night glass of wine…..or two. I enjoy it and I’m going to keep on enjoying it.
But it also taught me that there are simple changes one can make that will have an impact on our health. Also, I’m totally getting a t-shirt made that says Sugar is bad y’all.
That shit is in everything. Seriously, go open your fridge right now and start reading labels. It’s scary how sweetened our society has become.
p.s. My husband informed me midway through the #FatBlast50 that he decided to stop eating pasta and bread and dropped seven pounds in two weeks. He’s fun like that.
