Today I was featured on the eDiets.com newsletter. Here's the link:
My Story on eDiets
That was fun! Kim Droze was really nice to talk to, and did a good job with the story. Hopefully it will help more people discover the Blood Type Diet. eDiet's program certainly would make the diet easier to start, you don't have to think about what you can't eat, because they just give you menus, recipes and shopping lists for what you can eat. I have to say I'm quite full even after cutting out the nonnie-avoids and foods with gluten from the meal plans. I just can't cook and eat fast enough to keep up with the plan! You can customize it as well, or use your own meal ideas, but I like not having to think about it so much.
According to their site, I only have 6 more pounds to lose. Of course, with fall here and the holidays approaching, it will still be a feat. I don't crave carbs so much in the summer, it isn't quite as hard, but in the fall, it's much more difficult. Even when I'm full, I want to nibble on something carby.
I'd like to lose a little more than 6 pounds though...to be the weight I was in high school would be awesome, but I'm only 10 pounds from there! (I wasn't too thin, like some teenagers are, but I was at a healthy weight) I've started using my hand weights again, to strengthen my arms and shoulders. I need to really start focusing on fitness and exercise. I am getting closer to being able to get a treadmill, as the days get colder. I used to walk in any weather, but my son doesn't like the nippy air too well, especially when confined to his stroller.
