Hi ladies- mind if I join you? I'm just starting out- AGAIN... after losing 78 lbs. in 2012, and gaining it all back plus some after pregnancy. I weighed 318 at one point in May at the doctor's, I think my scale is slightly off from theirs, but I am not so focused on the number more than I am seeing it go down anyway. I started daily weighing yesterday at 313.2. I feel awful and can't wait to see these pounds melt away! When I weighed in this morning I lost exactly one pound- so at 312.2 now. Eating has been really good so far. It's like my body has been craving healthier foods, I have NO urge to eat fast food or drink soda as of yet. Yesterday my husband and I went to the grocery store with both kids in tow (what a disaster!
lol) and bought a ton of healthy foods- lots of veggies, fruits, and some meat for the week. I forgot how expensive it was to eat healthy, we spent $100! Anyway- for dinner I grilled some chicken and sauteed some green beans in olive oil and minced garlic. It was so good! Today for breakfast I had a banana and some grapes. I have a yummy lunch of 1/2 whole wheat pita with leftover grilled chicken, half a slice of cheese, avocado and tomato slices... with 6 or 7 mini rice cakes (about 1/2 a serving) and some cucumber salad (cucumber with light sour cream, salt and pepper). Dinner tonight is grilled chicken caesar salads with light caesar dressing. My daughter isn't thrilled about it, she doesn't care for salad- but I am determined to take control of this family's health- so I hope she will try it out! I have been drinking a ton of water also. Feeling better already- have a great day!
