After a bumpy start with some side effects to the new meds. I persisted and have added exercise into my weekly routine. Walking, riding my bike and doing T-Tapp. Something everyday! I also use the Weight Watchers online program to keep track of my food and activity! Finally everything is coming together and working for me!
From November 11th to December 8th I've lost 12 pounds and 3 inches off of my waist in 4 and a 1/2 weeks!
Plus I am feeling so much better. I'm finally able to do a workout and not need 2 days recovery time. I'm able to stay awake all day if I need to... (But still like to take a little afternoon nap sometimes)
I've been eating Low Glycemic meals and its been SO EASY!
Here are some of the meals I've been having these past 4 weeks:
Some of my breakfast meals
|1/2 cup vanilla yogurt and smashed strawberries with Truvia|
|Eggs florentine with 2 oz Spicy V8 juice|
Here are some of my Lunches:
|1 cup of cottage cheese with fresh diced tomato and green onion|
|Chicken salad and crackers|
|A large salad (with homemade Ranch) with a lean beef patty|
|Tuna Salad stuffed tomatos|
|Chicken Taco salad with homemade cilantro dressing|
Here are some dinners I've been enjoying!
|Balsamic glazed lean pork chop and cut green beans with slivered almonds and dried cranberries|
|Sautéed chicken sausage with steamed carrots and cabbage|
|Sautéed pork chop with Dijon sauce and Fancy green beans|
|Lean beef stir fry with snow peas, carrots and water chestnuts|
|Roasted chicken breast with steamed and buttered broccoli and cauliflower.|
|Boiled shrimp and crab with 2 tab. catchup and horseradish and field green salad with fresh ginger dressing.|
I'm not one bit nervous about the approaching holidays either! I lost those 12 pounds and 3 inches over Thanksgiving and a 10 day vacation in Newport Beach and Disneyland!
I know I CAN do it!
