Now you gotta know something. First off~the scale IS NOT the measure of my success! My measurement IS how I've eaten and taken care of ME~BUT...BUT .... .... BUT.... It DOES SHOW how overall my plan of eating POE is measuring up (literally)! Soo with this said, I was facing the scale...and BIG TIME~
I got on it, and it revealed another 7lb loss~total 39lbs since beginning! WHOOT!~ Now in all honesty, this is a very very very very very very ...you get the idea ;-)) VERY sloooooooooow wt loss plan evidently, b/c I had not weighed in 6 weeks. But I KNOW during that time to the present I've consumed no more than 2200 calories and no white sugars/flour, so just because it's slow doesn't mean I am off the plan...it means I AM on the plan~taking care to eat whole foods~foods prepared from their freshest state and not in boxes or cans...and OFTEN not even from a jar..unless we fresh preserved it OR froze it ourselves! Anyway, I was sick and had to go in and began on an antibiotic~pfui!
Tues~ I went to the YMCA and swam 40 minutes with hard aerobic jogging/laps/exercises with wts...went grocery shopping too~woot!
The new POE came about b/c I want to drop some wt fairly fast, and so I am dropping my calories to about 1600 for one week. I don't think I can do it long term as the feelings of deprivation with get me, but in a short spurt I know I can with the Lord's help. I am eating 6 small meals a day and drinking loads of water. I hope this will jump start my metabolism so that I can get some weight off in the short run pretty fast! THIS IS NOT a candybar OR grapefruit OR an all meat food plan~it's balanced with ALL the food groups in the freshest most whole state possible. I will consume protein, bread (whole grain), milk(or milk products), fresh fruit, and fresh veggies along with good distilled water from our distiller. It really tastes wonderful! I hope to weigh in a few days to see how I've done~
Wed~POE going fine~doing light housekeeping and homeschooling today~got out to Youth group that night. Can't believe we are going sledding next week~oh well, Sister is NOT getting down the hill on a sled~THIS YEAR...but maybe next, Lord willing! I can DREAM!
Thurs~POE went fine although I did end up getting more food earlier than I had thought so when dinner was finished, I was DONE eating for the day having max'd out my calories for the day~Went to the YMCA to work out and then ran errands. Loads of moving and grooving~I was beat, but I feel confident that my energy will improve over time and continued effort.
Fri~Okay, gonna slap this day right in here b/c I'm most likely to forget MY GOOD progress by next week's update~LOL...Headed to the YMCA and exercised in the water for 45 min and feel great~headed to the grocery(gotta get out and get that fresh stuff so it IS fresh!)...One thing is AMAZING~MY JEANS ARE LOOSER!! whhoooot! I'm eaten my food plan too~oh yeah!
Okay, this is my week~I have exercised 3/7 days which isn't too shabby for a fat girl~LOL!
How are you doing? I'm taking it one day at a time~And you?
