I am a pretty happy lady today!! After 3 weeks of weight gain, I was thrilled to step on the scale and see a loss today.
This week I really focused on the things that have kept me at my current weight, specifically eating too much cheese, not eating enough vegetables, and the need to limit sweets/desserts.
I really enjoyed working to eat more vegetables and how colorful it can make your plate!
Last night I made myself a bell pepper Caesar salad.
I started by dicing a red bell pepper, orange bell pepper, and a yellow bell pepper.
Next I added 1 1/2 tbsp of Ken’s Lite Caesar dressing to the bowl of diced bell peppers.
Salads don’t have to include a leafy vegetable. Sometimes it’s fun to make a salad with just bell peppers, tomatoes, or cucumbers and to nix the lettuce.
Changes like adding more veggies helped me to lose 2.8 pounds this week!
Starting Weight: 234.6 lbs
Last Weigh-in: 226.0 lbs
This Weigh-in: 223.2 lbs
Difference: -2.8 lbs
Total Weight Loss: -11.4 lbs
My next goal is to get out of the 220’s!! I would love to see 219 before Christmas. It could be tough with all of the holiday parties and Neal’s birthday celebration on the agenda over the next two weeks, but I have the tools needed to be successful.
I am going to stay focused and work towards my secret New Years goal!!! I want it bad.
