16kgs of butter!
I really don't miss Butter! The day I first started my weight loss I decided not to eat any more butter. This was a fairly hard decision for me as I dearly loved crumpets with lashings of butter, potatoes with lashings of butter, toast dripping with lashings of butter - you get the general idea - yes, lashings of butter on everything.
Any time I need a spread I now use Light Laughing Cow Cream Cheese Spread Portions. They are half a point per serve and one serve is enough to spread two slices of toast or 2 crumpets. When I am cooking I use olive oil spray and when I need butter as an ingredient I use Olive Grove light margarine.
I thought I would miss Butter, but I really don't. I have read that it helps us realise the weight we have lost by visualising it as something like tubs of butter, so I put together a photo of 16kgs of butter (32 x 500g tubs), as this is the weight I have lost since starting.
Any time you feel that you are losing weight too slowly, just measure that weight loss in something like a tub of butter and you will realise that it all adds up and each few hundred grams really makes a difference.
I am so glad the butter is still in the tubs and now not on my hips and thighs!
YAY FOR A BUTTER-FREE LIFE!!!!
