Well, we are now into week nine. Yes, it sounds good to see eight weeks crossed off my BFL tracker. I hit a wall about three weeks ago, and decided I needed not get frustrated but make a few changes in my workouts. I discussed that last week. I also had to make some changes in my diet.
When I start any diet I usually make my portion sizes on the high end. I do that because I think if you start on the low end you will probably starve yourself. Yet once your stomach gets used to the new diet, then you switch to the low end. However, I think I went with the high end a little too long and my body figured out what I was up to. So I hit a wall.
So this week I decided to start with the lower portions. Its a little tougher, yet all last week I did pretty well with it. You feel a little more hungry, but you start brushing your teeth, chewing more gum, and drinking more water instead of eating more.
