Another pound down! My only concern is I don’t think I’m eating enough fiber? I drink maybe 4-6 bottles of water daily (under/over) and I’m eating greens and protein, I work for a GI so I should be able to tell. I might try a spoonful of Metamucil powder.
Anyways yesterday’s dinner consisted of turkey burgers (egg white for it to hold), broccoli and carrots. Actually quite yummy. I was craving ice cream at night but I decided to just go to bed instead of ruining my diet.
Lunch-turkey and cucumbers
Snacks- halo mandarins and almonds
Dinner-chicken breast (oven baked) and broccoli
I know I’m not supposed to check my weight often, but I mean come on I can’t help it. I lost 2 pounds! Now I know that the first maybe 10 pounds are gonna come off easier than most because it was already weighing 10 pounds less and my body knows it. I’m more afraid of hitting a plateau in my weight loss. Well I guess I’ll deal with that when it comes.
Breakfast: 2 Eggs (only egg whites)
Snacks: Halo Mandarin (so cute)
Thank goodness for My Fitness Pal
Just for me I guess
Last April (2013) I decided I needed to stop gaining weight. I was weighing 175! At a height of 5’4. I was constantly complaining to my boyfriend of how gross I felt/looked and him being the biggest sweet heart kept repeating “you’re fine but if you keep complaining then do something about it”. So finally I made up my mind…it was time to change something. I was hitting a size 10 in jeans and large in shirts/blouses. I went to the store, bought myself a pair of Nike running shoes and download “My Fitness Pal”. Put in my weight and how much I wanted to lose,which was about 1-2 pounds a week. The first 2 weeks might have been the most difficult ever! I was only eating 1200 calories and walking/jogging every other day. I was not in the best shape at all!
I was always bloated and felt as if I wasn’t losing anything but after 3 weeks one of my close friends (who’s a health junkie) actually said to me “wow have you lost weight?” and all I could say was “I hope so!!”. I decides to weigh myself and saw that I lost 15 pounds in 5 weeks! Went down to a size 8 and back to medium in blouses. I was ecstatic! For the next two weeks I lost another 3 pounds but then I went to Florida for my vacation and when I came back I made the mistake of not continuing my workout/diet. I kept telling myself I was going to start next week or next month. By October I gained about 3 pounds then another 5 pounds by January and now in April (2014) I noticed altogether I gained 11 pounds back! How could I let this happen?
Anyways, today I started my low carb diet as well as working out either daily or every other day. My goal now is to lose 20 pounds by June 15th. Let’s hope this works!!!
I’ll be updating this as often as I can.
