Today marked the completion of week two of the third twelve weeks at Doctors Wellness Center!
This a.m.’s weight was 176.8, down one lb. from last week. I have now completed 26 weeks and lost 52 lbs., an average of two lbs. per week. I would LOVE to think that I could lose 20 lbs. in the next 10 weeks, but I know that I may also eventually reach a plateau. I’m just trying to take one day at a time.
After reviewing my weekly food log, Traci said that I didn’t eat enough last week, and I knew that. On weekends and busy work days, I sometimes miss a snack or don’t eat enough.
Also, I noticed that since I started eating only whole grains, I was having a few more animal products. It used to be that a peanut butter sandwich or whole wheat pasta with tomato sauce was a great meatless lunch, but now I’m having to get more creative. (There is nothing wrong with whole wheat bread/pasta, but I am laying off it for a while to help with weight loss.)
This week’s goals:
- Eat enough every day, especially vegetables.
- Continue to move every day, stretch and ice heel, but also add 10 minutes – and only 10 minutes – on the elliptical two days this week.
- Try some new recipes for lunch. (We looked through a cookbook and Traci made some copies for me.)
On to week three!
