YAY! I did my weigh-in this morning (at home, as I'm still just doing WW online, and not at meetings....) and I'm down 2.8 this week! Yahoo!!! Feeling good about it too because it is plain and simply because I stayed on the program really well this week. Once again - it works when you do it the right way.
This means I'm down a total of 7.2 lbs in a little less than a month. I had a goal of loosing 10 lbs before we go to Hawaii, and that's coming up - but it looks like I *might* be able to make it. We'll see.
Now I wish I had a big list of fabulous new recipes. But truthfully I haven't been trying many new recipes. And it's been one of the craziest/busiest months of our marriage and so I haven't even been real great about cooking meals every night. We've had a lot of leftovers, quick bites out to eat, and quick meals at home. I've been eating a lot more fresh fruits (I've been LOVING fresh peaches!) but I need to work on my vegetables better this week. Fruits aren't hard - but veggies are a little more difficult for me.
I have been focusing on protein this week, and as it's been in the past - it helps tremendously. One of my favorite high protein foods is low fat or fat free cottage cheese. A lot of mornings I'll have a bowl of that and some kind of fruit for breakfast. Good for calcium, low fat, and loaded with protein. I also like to eat tuna fish for lunch. Here's a recipe I use a lot of times for lunch:
Sweet & Spicy Tuna (4.5 points)
1 pouch of Starkist Flavor Creations Sweet & Spicy Tuna
2 Tbsp fat free Mayo
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped baby carrots
Mix well and enjoy!
So here's hoping to another successful week like this one. If any of you have great lower calorie/fat, protein rich forms of food that you enjoy - please post them - I'd love more ideas!
