Wow, has it been a month? 🙂 Well, it’s more than a month since my last post. Part of the reason why I haven’t been blogging is because I don’t have anything to write about except about my Cohen diet which, most probably, will bore you to death.
So, last August 8 was my first month weigh-in and blood test in the Cohen program and guess what 🙂 I lost 6 kilograms and the stats in my blood exam (sugar, creatinine, potassium, sodium, etc) also dropped. I also lost a total of 14 inches off my arms, chest, waist, hips and thighs. Some of you might say that the results are significant but I’d say not really.
I’m happy to have lost that much in a month but I’m off my targets. My biggest roadblock would be occasions where I have to dine out with family or friends. I wish I could do something better this August but the first two weeks are insane. I couldn’t get back the rhythm I had during my first 2 weeks into the program. Although, I’m really thankful that I lost the weight and some inches without treating the diet as a big ordeal. I’m happy (ier) and I don’t feel like I’m deprived at all.
Do friends notice? I don’t know. Maybe they do but they don’t say anything. I don’t really mind what others have to say. All I know is that I feel lighter, I’m two sizes smaller when it comes to jeans and pants, and a size smaller as to tops and blouses. And I get to shop weekly! 🙂 As for friends who don’t see me regularly, they noticed and I’m happy about that. I have friends who are in the Cohen program as well and I saw their improvement. They keep me inspired.
Overall, it’s a pretty exciting journey. With some cheats along the way, there’s still one thing I am absolutely in compliance with — I still don’t eat rice. Hah! Totally in control and I, myself, am amazed with the discipline that I have shown. I can’t wait to check out my second month report which is gonna be on the first week of September.
That plus a party I’m throwing this Friday for Foodbuzz. Will keep you posted.
Didn’t you miss me? I missed all of you! 🙂
