Not me-Amy, but Amy W.
While she has a lot of enviable traits (have you seen that smile?), I'm actually not really trying to be like her or even copycatting her (even though it's tempting), but it just so happens that the hubs has been entertaining the idea of trying Atkins to lose some weight. And I had been entertaining the idea of entertaining his idea of trying Atkins along with him. And then when I read that the lean, mean weight-loss machine Amy lost 8 lbs in one week of doing Atkins, well, that sealed the deal.
And seriously, I am finally skinnier than hubs, so you know, I can't let him lose faster than me. He's already got that whole male advantage thing. Yes, I know, I have that whole band advantage thing. But seriously, I like being skinnier than him.When you are taller than your husband, being skinnier than him helps you feel a bit petite, even if you are anything BUT petite!
Our journey starts next Wed. (We're going out of town this weekend.) My meals won't change dramatically, but my snacking will. Snacking has become my downfall, so I am hoping this will help me refocus on eating meals and using nutritious snacks when necessary.
And you know, any excuse to use heavy whipping cream in my coffee and not feel guilty, well, I'm on it!
