Three weeks (and one day) down! Can you believe that I'm more than HALFWAY through this thing?! I can't! But I'm happy about it, that's for sure.
I had a couple of cooking failures, and I'm feeling sleepy, so I'll skip the food pictures for today and cut to the chase: my weigh-in results!
Starting Weight: 262.7 pounds
Week 1 Weight: 255.9 pounds
Week 2 Weight: 251.0 pounds
Current Weight: 246.8 pounds
Eek! I lost 4.2 pounds, bringing my grand total to 15.9 pounds in 3 weeks! Um, that's pretty insane.
Lately, I haven't been as strict about certain things. I want to make sure I'm eating enough, and I don't always have time to make huge salads with multiple cups of beans... so some days (like today) I'll have two or three servings of starches/grains, instead of the one serving I'm supposed to have. I've probably also had more sodium than I'm supposed to - sometimes I use low-sodium vegetable broth, for example. The sodium content isn't high, but there is some in there all the same.
I've been thinking a lot lately about what to do at the end of the 6 weeks. I really just want to get to a place where I can lose weight (and eventually maintain) without going crazy... without having to measure or count everything, and without having a minor panic attack every time I have to eat outside of my house.
At any rate, I've got 3 more weeks to figure it out... night all!
