Well the end of that year is pretty much here, and I didn't keep or even work toward my goal much. I quit months ago. So my husband says that it isn't too late if it is important to me, to start now. (Although he loves me as I am no matter the shape and size) He says that he is certain I can make changes in even just the one month we have left before I want some pictures taken.
So I am going to start once a week logging my weight in on Thursdays and provide whatever updates there may be and see if there are any changes. I started by purchasing this:
I know I have vented about my weight before and I got some great tips and I completely plan on using them, and I don't expect this 5 day weight loss kit to be magic in a box or anything...I picked it up simply to give myself a starting idea I put my meals for a day in a bag and told myself when the food is gone, I am done eating for the day. That is it. If I eat it all by noon then too bad for me. So this is more to just give me some more helpful ideas and show me what a portion size is for the moment...I know I can make my own food and save money etc....but I wanted to set stricter limits on myself where there is no pot of spaghetti to go back to after I dished out my so called portion.
This was breakfast
That is a double chocolate muffin from nutrisystem with a glass of vanilla Almond milk...I did ok with that ate it around 8 am and didn't have my snack till about 2 hours later
I ate cheesy potatoes provided by nutrisystem for lunch and we grilled our own chicken on the grill the guy that works next to us has out back at work.
Dinner was lasagna with meat sauce.....
Ok to me that is the smallest portion of lasagna ever...I am sure if I had made a big pan my portion would have been twice the size of that and I may have went back for more....but I behaved myself ate the lasagna and had some cabbage with it......and ate my nutrisystem cookies for dessert. So far not too bad. I drank six glasses of water today. Big improvement for me. Honestly it is 8 pm my head says I want to eat, but I am not going to. I hope to go back to the YMCA to go swimming at least twice a week starting tomorrow night again. We will see. I am trying not to have any expectations, just to learn new things, and see what happens, but really try and take better care of my body....
Ok and here is to baring it all......here is one of those embarrassing side profile pics that really let it all hang out, my hubby took it, and he I told him I want you to take one of those horrible side profile pics, and he sweetly and seriously says...you can't possibly take a bad picture you are always beautiful....yep maybe I will keep him around for another 15......
I am weighing in at 269 today.....and I logged my food intake completely honest on fitness pal at www.myfitnesspal.com
Today I ate 1709 calories but I still have 234 remaining.....and I need to reduce my sodium and sugar intake according to the log. We will see what it looks like next week, and if I can honestly keep my eating in check.
