I'm a numbers geek... (that's why I love My Fitness Pal so much!)
I haven't eaten bread 15 days
I haven't eaten pasta in 16 days
I haven't drank soda or energy drinks in 25 days
Since the beginning of the year, I've lost 6.6lbs (Wish I would have taken measurements, but I didn't)
I don't miss any of the above items. I'm sure I will occasionally eat some whole grain pasta and possibly have some bread every now and then, but if/when I DO eat bread, I want it to be worth it! I want it to be fresh baked, delicous bread!
