Greek Yogurt & Cottage Cheese

Two of my dreaded items on the diet....when I started any way!

Now, I love them!  I find myself using one or the other all the time (more the yogurt than the cottage cheese but hey I'm getting there!)  Right now I am sitting here eating the Vanilla Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt....and I AM LOVING IT!  To think there was a day that I thought I would not be able to eat this yogurt without adding splenda, SF/FF pudding or some other flavoring to make it tolerable LOL

Crazy how your taste buds adjust - just another great thing about eating right, your body really does know what's good for it and adjusts to eating it on a regular basis and allowing you to enjoy it! 

BTW, I was excited on Friday; got pinched and after a little blunder it in the numbering thinking my body fat was initially 17% (which would have just been CRAZY!!)  I pinched at a wonderful 21%!!! my thigh fat has gone from a 31 to a 24!! (I am carrying the majority of my fat on my lower body still)  I felt even better though when I got this from Shelly the next day "You looked FANtabUlous last night. Really leaning out! Very impressed by your results, so excited for you!!!!!!"

I do hope that you all are doing great as well.  Let me know if there is anything I can help you with!  And my best advice to you...I know how expensive a trainer can be but when you find a great one - one who knows what they are really doing - they will really be your best friend in acomplishing and attaining your goals.  It's more than just exercising, weight training, cardio's the nutrition side of things as well and when you can get both to work for you you will see amazing results...but, if you don't have the right person guiding you you are still selling yourself short.  If you aren't happy with the trainer you have now, tell them why and let them go - then go out and try another one.  I promise you will find the one who will work for you....remember you are paying them, not the other way around - and if they are just standing next to you while you are on the treadmill, elliptical or other cardio equipment each time you are in the gym - are they really earning the money you are paying them?  Stay in control of what you want, get the help the proper way and you will see the results just as I am!  It is your dedication but it's also the program - they work together to get the results.  And if you think this isn't true....have you watched the Biggest Loser or any other weight loss show?  They always ALWAYS combine nutrition into what they are teaching.  YOU CAN DO IT - Don't stop now, you are a rock star as well!
