That’s the big news: I broke the 330 barrier at 329 lbs! I weighed in Monday morning with Martha. It had been one week since I restarted the program and in that week I lost 9.8 lbs. – again mostly with just the diet. Down from 362.7 (my all-time high!): a total loss so far of 33.7 lbs.
I don’t think I told you that they never did put me on that severe medifast diet. That was mostly because of my diabetes. So I’ve been on a “real world” diet. I think it’s healthier that way actually. It consists of three meals and three snacks. In any one day, I can have no more than 8 ozs. of lean meat; 5 servings of grains or starches; 4 of vegetables; 3 of dairy; 3 or fruit. The snacks are usually yogurt, an apple or popcorn. It’s working for me so far!
And it means I can go out on a Saturday night for a steak dinner and a martini – if I plan for it. Like last Saturday: Martini (1.5 grains), Salad with diet dressing (1 Veggie);Steak 8 ozs. (down to 6 when cooked) (6 meats), broccoli (1 veggie), small dinner roll (1 grain). But I HAVE to plan for it – and record everything for Martha to review.
Like I say, it’s working so far! Keep me in your prayers, as you are in mine!
