Slooooooowing down...

I feel like my weight loss is at a standstill. I haven't weighed in yet this week, mostly due to my husbands family visiting and the fact that I am scared to see how much weight I most likely have gained! We went out for so many meals, and I cut back on the exercising to spend extra time with the family. It is of course, worth it, but the results could be discouraging.

One tip I can give that I received from the personal trainer, is to eat a grapefruit before every meal. Most likely, you have heard of the grapefruit diet, but he gave me some insight to why it works. Besides all of the health benefits, it also speeds up your metabolism. I went ahead and googled this, and I got results saying you could lose anywhere between 5-12 lbs in a month! Now, this of course should be consumed in conjunction with a healthy diet. So I have been eating half a grapefruit at every meal. Good thing I love it!!

I hope everyone else is doing well on their weight loss! Good luck!

  2. Hey Shan! I was exploring one of the blogs that Moe has a link to a while ago and it had a bunch of WW recipes.... I can't remember which blog, but one of them was for broiled grapefruit and it looked delicious! She sprinkled some cinammon and maybe a bit of brown sugar on it (you could always use the Splenda version too) and broiled it for a second. I haven't tried it, but if you get bored of grapefruit raw it might be worth a look!
