This is just a quick update…
After 15 months of living a low carb lifestyle, I am still stuck at 78 pounds lost. The scale goes up 3 pounds, down 2, up 3 more, down 4…back to 212.
I am frustrated a little, but overall I am very happy with the weight loss success so far!
I have not totally given up aspartame yet, but I am working on it. My consumption level is DRASTICALLY reduced. I still have a regular Diet Coke now and then…but not 8 cans a day like I used to consume.
Diet Rite with Splenda is very good as well as Diet Coke with Splenda…but sometimes when I want a soda, there is no Splenda option….so….sometimes I have aspartame. I know one day, I will no longer have any, but for now…once in a while…I’ll have it.I do not feel any different than when I would consume lots and lots of aspartame…so…I am not sure what to make of all the negative claims about it. I guess I will err on the side of caution…and work to stop consumption completely…but for now…take it slow.
My exercise still mainly consists of a 30-45 minute walk 3-5 times a week, and little else…unless you count projects around the house and chasing my daughters around…Out of the mouths of babes….
Uno, Dos, Tres, Honko, Cinco….she can not say Quatro...
Have a God-filled day!
