My little sister is getting married in a few of weeks. I am her Maid of Honor. I bought a really pretty dress a month or so ago. Even though it was marked two sizes larger than I normally wear (please tell me that's just how formal wear is) it fit just a tiny bit snug. Not too bad, but when I would unzip I felt like I could finally take a deep breath. Well, I kind of forgot about it and decided to eat whatever I wanted until a week ago when I remembered that I was TRYING to eat better and work-out so I could be MORE comfortable in this dress.
I am not the type that can just 'not eat'. I love food WAY too much. Besides, my grouchyness goes way up when I'm hungry. So I asked my sis-in-law (a nurse) what I can do to loose 10 lbs fast. She suggested NO CARBS!!! I laugh at people who don't eat carbs. How can I do this? Of course she said that it's not good for your body long-term but that it could aid in the process to shed a little unwanted lbs. Well, I'm trying. but I'm not doing no carbs- more like LOW CARBS.
For example: tonight for dinner i had 1/2 a dinner roll instead of 3 whole dinner rolls. That was hard. and while my family ate spaghetti, I chowed on shredded zucchini with spaghetti sauce (Very yummy if you haven't tried it).
The problem I'm having is that I don't LOVE many vegetables and GOOD fruit (the kind that actually tastes like it's supossed to) is hard to find in these parts. Oh how I miss living in California and eating a peach that tastes like a peach.
OK. I'll get to the reason why I'm sharing all this with you. I NEED HELP! Does anyone have any good meal/snack ideas that don't involve a TON of carbs? I'd love to hear your thoughts and ideas. PLEASE!
p.s.- I'm working on my FIRST tutorial! Woohoo! Hopefully it's ready to post by monday. So I'm not taking a break from quilting completely- just working on the technical side of a quilting blog. :o)
