... as I have not lost weight. But for me there is definite progress:
I have not eaten sweets for a month, apart from some sugar-free sweets (and a teaspoon jam on a few occasions).
I have increased my fruit intake, which was really low before (by too much, actually, so need to decrease it now).
I have maintained my weight for 3 weeks instead of gaining as before. So, I have arrested the weight gain.
I eat very healthy foods. No junk, or stodgy, deep-fried, highly processed stuff.
Next step: start reducing the portions gradually.
I am confident in the new year I will start seeing a slow loss. I don't mind if initially it is a slow as 2 - 3 pounds a month. I am not one to rush the process: been there, tried that, did not work.
i admire those who can jump into the weight loss process and start losing 2 lbs or more a week. But even though I am slow, I know I can lose weight successfully too with my approach.
