Girls, confess, life with the father-in-law under one roof – is it a nightmare for you or a completely normal community?
I, in principle, get on with my father-in-law well, if it were not for one thing … No, no, I will not complain about the hard fate of my daughter-in-law, because my fate is not hard at all, but very much nothing 🙂
Where did the extra pounds come from
But, as I said, there is still one thing. 3 winter months my husband and I spent with his parents. And my mother-in-law (unlike me) loves to mess around with the dough, and therefore we had something flour on the table every day — some pies, some dumplings, some pies…
And she cooks very tasty, and to refuse such dishes was beyond my strength. And try to get past the kitchen in the morning and not eat hot pancakes with homemade sour cream or strawberry jam. Moreover, it is so nice that the mother-in-law cares for pancakes especially for me.
In general, 3 months spent with my mother-in-law had an effect on my weight not in the best way – I gained 4 kg. And it’s okay if these kg were somehow evenly distributed over the body – a couple of kilograms in the chest, and a couple in the ass. So no – I have all at once accumulated in the abdomen, and I look like some kind of pregnant nail 🙂
In general, it was necessary to lose weight urgently – ahead of the summer, shorts, T-shirts, swimsuits, and I barely buttoned jeans. In addition, the experience of losing weight I already hoo what, so much that I did not worry – just tuned to losing weight and began the process.
How to lose weight?
And I chose for myself 2 diets, combined them and adapted for myself. The first is a diet on the famous Bonn soup. Some people may not like this soup, but I am a fan of vegetables and vegetable soups, so for me the soup was not a problem.
Such soup is cooked on water, and it is allowed to add such vegetables: cabbage (any, you can even 2-3 types at once), carrots, onions, a lot of greens and necessarily celery root. In general, there was such a soup for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and always when the appetite was waking up.
The second diet called 5 tablespoons, I think, speaks for itself – you can eat everything, but only a volume of not more than 5 spoons. That is, the portion should be in the range of 150-180 g.
In general, I got a hybrid diet – Bonn soup in the amount of 5 tablespoons 🙂 Although, of course, besides the soup, I had fresh vegetables and salads from them, low-fat cottage cheese, fruits, nuts, and coffee with a spoon of honey.
Yes, and I cooked soup sometimes with the addition of lentils, mushrooms or tomato. After all, otherwise I would not have sustained a whole month to chew only one type of soup and would have hated celery;)
And, of course, all this time I have not stopped pumping the press – for me it is as natural as washing in the morning. The result appeared very quickly – at first I noticed it in my jeans, and a month later the scales showed minus 4 kg – my normal weight.
What can I say? Soups were easy for me – I love them and they didn’t bother me. It was harder in the first week to get used to small amounts of servings. But literally in 7 days my stomach got used to such portions.
R.S. With mother-in-law and hot pancakes is good, but at home it’s still better;)
