I'm officially 20lbs lighter than I was 6 weeks ago and no worse for the wear. I had to weigh myself twice this morning, but it's true - 213.2 lbs.
What's with the bear? If you remember an earlier post, when I was on Nutrisystem, they would reward you with a colorful stuffed bear each time you dropped 10 lbs. I never lost enough weight on Nutrisystem to earn my purple bear. I spent over $1200 on Nutrisystem and never lost more than 15 lbs. So, to recognize my achievement, I'm posting my purple bear here.
Our culture is funny. When preparing dinner last night, I could hear 'everybody' saying, "That's not enough food. You should really be eating a lot more. Here, have some mashed potatoes." But I decided to instead just eat what I thought would satisfy the hunger knowing I could get more if I wanted it. After eating what I prepared, I was satisfied.
Push ups - knocked off 60 yesterday. Not great, but a start.
Breakfast - 2 cups of coffee and Flax Oil. Kept putting off breakfast for work and missed it.
Lunch - 1/2 of a quesadilla (I learned my lesson.) Spinach salad.
Dinner - Not even going to pretend that this was to be pretty. That's a 2-egg, black bean and cheese omelet - sort of. I just wanted protein. Also, yogurt, fiber cereal, blueberries.
Snack - Peanut butter cookie. I had friends stop by. Whipped up a batch. Had one. Sent the rest home with them.
It looks like I'm eating less today, but I've actually just grouped a few pics together.
