Oh hey there!
I know, it’s been a LONG time. 12 weeks to be exact.
I’ve spent the last 12 weeks NOT cooking, NOT making dinner, NOT grocery shopping, and instead, doing a doctor-supervised liquid diet program called OptiFast.
It hasn’t been easy by any means. Do I want to cook? YES. Do I want to eat delicious things like buffalo mac and cheese? YES.
But here’s the thing. This is working. I’m down over 40 pounds so far. I feel better than I have in years, I have more energy, my skin has cleared up, and I’m back into sizes that can be purchased at a “regular” store.
I posted this picture on Facebook and Instagram and had inadvertently put the year as 2014…guess I was looking ahead. I fixed it to share with you all!
I’m sure that once I start transitioning back to normal food, I’ll start sharing recipes here again, but for now, my life is kind of boring.
6:30 a.m. – OptiFast shake made with hot coffee and sugar free syrup
9:30 a.m. – OptiFast bar
11:45 a.m. – Ready-to-drink OptiFast Shake
3:30 p.m. – Either a powdered OptiFast shake or another bar
7:00 p.m. – OptiFast soup, either chicken or tomato, made with a few herbs and spices
Throughout the day – approx 96 oz. water
Physical activity – Walking, and recently, I’ve been taking Pilates classes.
My life is so significantly different than it has been in previous years that I’m really making a new normal.
I’m chronicling my journey/adventure at my new blog, FoodieReset
Thanks for sticking with me!
