Well, it's Friday so I just got on the scale for my weekly weigh-in and I weighed 152.0
I lost .6 pounds and I'm really happy about that! My goal was to get under 150 and that didn't happen, but I'm not dissapointed - not one little bit. More than the number on the scale - my clothes are fitting better, I'm down another inch around my waist, and I feel more in control of what goes into my mouth. Rather than feeling "restricted" on the BFC, once I got past the sugar/carb detox and and the longer I eat the BFC way, I actually feel like I have more choices.....not less. I find that I'm thinking less about what I can't have now and more about what I can. I'm experimenting with new foods and even finding ways to make some old favorites fit into this way of eating. Call me strange, but, I think it's kind of becoming a fun challenge now to see what meals/snacks I can put together that fit the BFC guidelines.
I've moved the goal of getting under 150 to next Friday, June 1st. That is mine and my husband's 16th wedding anniversary so that would be a great day to have it happen.
I'm going to make sure to eat fish atleast once, if not twice, next week. For some reason, whenever I eat fish, it spurs on my weight loss. I'll probably make tilapia scampi. Here is the recipe that I use: http://www.5dollardinners.com/2010/08/scampi-tilapia.html I always double the butter/garlic sauce because we like to spoon it from the baking dish over our fish before we eat it. Our Kroger (King Soopers) sells tilapia in 2 1/2 lbs bags for $9-$11 depending on if they are running a sale. Each tilapia is packaged separately so you just take out the number that you need and then put the bag back in the freezer.
Anyways, here is what I ate yesterday:
Breakfast: My morning shake; Yerba Mate chocolatte tea
Lunch: 2 Scrambled eggs with cheese, almond butter with Redi-Whip
Dinner: Tuna salad on 3 celery sticks; 2 crackers (this may not sound like alot but the celery sticks were large and FULL of tuna salad. It was very filling) :)
We have evening activies on Tuesdays and Thursdays so dinner is always low-key and kind of hodge-podge. I forgot to take a photo but here is a photo that I took a few months ago of the same meal. My dinner last night looked exactly like this (but with 2 crackers instead of the bread and butter).
This afternoon, along with our sons' Boy Scout troop, we'll be placing flags at the cemetery for the Veterans. We're also planning on making some more smoked chicken and having our families over sometime this holiday weekend. That's all for now. Have a great weekend!!
