If you’ve been around my blog for a while, you know that I once had a weight loss blog. I deleted the blog because I didn’t have time to keep it up. (And now I have two blogs again…I can be a bit wishy washy. :) Even though the blog is gone, I have still held on to my goal of losing at least 40 pounds by my 40th birthday which will occur in August 2011.
I had lost a total of 10 pounds and have maintained that loss with no work on my part at all. However, I have decided to get back on the wagon and lose this excess weight. I now have a mini goal of 20 pounds by Thanksgiving. Honestly, that may be more of a big goal but I’m going to give it an old college try anyway.
I am trying to transition my family to real foods diet. But when I read about the “real food” or “whole food” diet, I sometimes wonder how it would apply to a weight loss. Those diets focus on real food, not manufactured foods. And some of those foods are high fat. That scares me a bit.
I did some internet searches and came up with the following links on real foods and weight loss:
The Nourishing Gourmet: Part 1
The Nourishing Gourmet: Part 2
For more posts on real foods, visit Keeper of the Home or any of the other links under my Healthy Homes category on the side bar.
This week, I will be working on a list of changes & goals that we need to implement in our home as we move toward real foods. I will share that next week (probably on Monday) and hopefully will also be able to tell you that I lost a little weight.
But first, I must say goodbye to an old friend…
