First Week Weigh In
I’ve lost 2 pounds. And an inch and a half. After my week of fluctuating – yoyo’s don’t go up and down the way my weight did – I’ve lost 2 pounds. Of course, I’m one of those people who *has* to weigh herself everyday.
I’m not starving. I do not believe in starving myself. It’s a setup for failure if you starve yourself while dieting, not only that, but if you take your calorie level below 1200, your body goes into starvation mode and won’t burn off what it’s supposed to – it converts it to fat and stores it because it thinks it won’t eat.
So basically, what I’m doing when it comes to cooking is this, and I’m doing a lot of cooking. I make a big pot of fresh vegetables,whatever I have on hand or appeals to me, cut them up and cook em with whatever seasonings move me at that particular moment. I also cook chicken with it, and squeeze a bunch of lime on the whole mess. I usually start by sauteeing in cooking spray and some kind of broth on the stove, then transferred to the oven. It’s good, and I can munch on the veggies whenever. Nobody in the house eats vegetables the way I do, unless it’s broccolli or caulifour with cheese melted over the top. And cheese is not allowed in the house right now.
Forgot to pick up a vitamin supplement, but I have been taking Omega 3 fish oil supplement since I don’t do fish. Drinking lots of water.
Noticing *big* behavior changes in babyboy. He’s more cooperative (in most cases, lol), he’s doing homework immediately without an argument, and he is doing it correctly. His brain is functioning much better. He came home today and didn’t even look at the fridge. He didn’t state he was hungry until I was cooking dinner.
He’s lost an inch, maybe 2 inches. I say maybe 2 because he’s very difficult to measure – He keeps giggling and moving. I’m very proud of him for sticking it out. I wish I could get the kid to eat more vegetables.
Exercise is not at the level it should be. Gotta work on that. I *will* have an exercise bike at the end of this month. One way or another. I want to get my strength built up so I can fit in some weights in the next couple of weeks, but I’m not going to do it all at once. I’m not out to kill myself.
