Normal start to the day, 3 Techui after waking, make coffee, then off to the shower and the scale!! This morning as I stepped on the scale, I saw I was only down 1/2 pound. At first thought the brain says, dang wish it was more, but that’s definitely the wrong attitude! I mean really, I’ve now lost 7 pounds in 4 days!! Home many times have I said that in my weight loss journey… like…. NEVER!!!
I’m totally excited and I’ve still got 5 days to go on Resolution! Certainly not going to complain about a mere 1/2 pound. lol So, let’s keep going
Resolution Day 5
6:15 AM: Took my Resolution drops and waited 15 minutes before eating or drinking! I have fallen in love with breakfast (that I used to skip) Once again, it was sauteed mushrooms and spinach with 2 egg whites. I can tell you, I’m much more alert at work, I feel quite satisfied and sometimes don’t even remember my snack on time. I try to time the snack in between breakfast and lunch, but lately it’s been closer to lunch than breakfast. Calories: 44
10:45 AM: Snack, I brought a tablespoon of peanut butter and 3 celery sticks. I just dipped the celery in the peanut butter and enjoyed my snack. Calories: 114
12:00 Noon: Took my Resolution and headed for home. Lunch was 3 oz of grilled lean hamburger with 1 teaspoon of ketchup and a little pepper and 1/2 cup of cottage cheese. Feeling full and happy!
I really think that now I can feel my stomach is starting to shrink. I can feel my ribs that I haven’t for quite some time! YAY!!!! For me this is quite amazing and I’m loving it!
Hubby and I were invited out for dinner this weekend to his brothers and sister-in-laws house, but I didn’t want her to have to do any extra work worrying about what I was gonna eat, so we postponed it for a week. I’m really getting better about turning down the food I used to love to eat!! I still will enjoy it, but I know I’ll be eating much less of it when I do. But right now, I’m sticking to my 10 day promise to myself!
5:30 PM: Made chicken fajita’s for dinner, minus the wraps. Sauteed mushrooms, green pepper, onion, and chicken! It was awesome!! Never thought of eating fajitas without the wrap before. Nice to know I can enjoy my food without the guilt! Calories for dinner 206
So, tonight I’m going to enjoy a glass of Ste Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon to celebrate a fabulous week! Don’t worry, it’s 1 small glass!
