Just finishing up Day 1 of the 5 Day Pouch Test. Now I remember how real dieting feels - and I don't like it. It took everything I had to pass the numerous candy dishes overflowing with chocolate and other tasty morsels in the office today. I've been gritting my teeth most of the day and telling myself that I can do anything for 5 days. This only goes to prove to me how completely addicted I am to carbohydrates I truly am. I definitely need to do this not only to get myself back in touch with my pouch but to detox from the sliders I have slid back into snacking on. So, thank you, Read. I needed this.
I also have a new goal. I am headed to Rio (in Brazil) for a girl's trip in late October. I would like to lose 40lbs. before my trip. That is roughly 5lbs per month and I think it is doable. Hopefully, this little pouch test will be just what I need to get me back on track.
