It’s that time again, time for my weekly edition of “Holy Hell My Pants Are Falling Off”. Today marks the end of my sixth full week eating foods on the Core food list (ahem, no, you may not count the Domino’s as food.), and I even managed to surprise myself this week.
Second week: -4.2 lbs.
Third week: -1.6 lbs.
Fourth week: -2.4 lbs.
Fifth week: -.8 lbs.
* * Sixth week: -2.6 lbs. * *
Total to date: -16.2 lbs.
10% target: 1.8 pounds away.
So, uh, yeah! WoOt! Holy wowzeroonies, I don’t know what happened! Well, yes I do, I ate a lot more fish this week than I normally do, ’cause I found this phenomenal Coconut encrusted tilapia with papaya and mango that I couldn’t resist. Other than that, it’s been a relatively normal week with the fruits and the vegetables and the proteins and the brown rice and whole grain high fiber bread. These are things I’m used to now, and obviously they work – so I don’t intend to change my ways any time soon.
I cleaned my drawers out yesterday, went through my shorts and jeans and ended up with a nice stack of relatively new stuff that is too big/baggy to wear. It’s been a long time since I’ve done that.
For those of you thinking this is my first go at this – it’s not. When Hubby left for Iraq, I weighed over 200 pounds. I dropped 55 pounds while he was gone, gained about 20 back after he returned, lost the 20 again and held for a year. Now I’m going for the gusto – down to my pre-pregnancy weight from 12 years ago. Since 2004, I’ve lost 65.6 pounds, not counting the 20 I gained back and lost again. I have about 10-15 pounds to go before I reach my own ultimate personal goal, but I’ll keep eating this way because I feel better.
I have to say – this is a nice way to start the week. If the rest of the week follows suit, I should get a lot accomplished. Wish me luck much productive time!
