Losing It: Week 9

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure statement for more details.


I’m kind of at a loss when it comes to a Losing It post this week. I’m still chugging along, trying to exercise. Still refusing to weigh in. I have made such great leaps when it comes to food during the course of this challenge. (Part of it may be the opening of the Farmer’s Market!!) We are eating grass-fed beef, homemade bread, and very little preservatives.

I actually mentioned to my husband last night that for the last couple weeks when I eat something sweet, like jelly beans (screw you Target Easter clearance!!), I’ve gotten really sick to my stomach. He said it was because those are the only processed foods I eat! He’s probably right. My sweet tooth is definitely tapering away. (Although Mary–I would totally forgo Pop-Tarts and chocolate frosting and eat ice cream every day.)

So today, as we’re nearing the end of our 10-week challenge, I’d like to share with you some of my favorite Losing It posts from the competitors!

  1. Doesn't it feel good to shed those processed foods? We've been doing much the same, and I feel the same way when I eat them now that my body isn't used to them anymore.

    Congratulations! Losing it isn't always about pounds lost, but sometimes we have to lose those emotional barriers before we can lose the pounds.

  2. It is amazing the effect that sugar has on the body! Ridiculous how easy it is to get addicted too! Its awesome that your farmers market opened! We still have about a month here. 🙁

  3. Thanks for the LINKY LOVE!

    So true about sugar! I've been baking up a storm (it relieves my stress), but I'm not eating any of it. I don't want to. It makes me feel yuck.

  4. "Very little preservatives" sounds awesome! I love this time of year, fresh produce and wonderful weather. Keep up the good work!

  5. I totally understand… you know I do.. I tried to eat bad yesterday.. and my body totally revolted! 🙁

    I just stinkin' love you girl…

  6. Thanks for linking to me — it made me want to get out and walk with my camera again. Great job on finding grass fed beef; do you like the taste?
