So, I never said I was technologically savvy, which explains why it has taken me nearly seven months to discover how to create a new page on this blog (thank you WW message boards!). I finally posted some photos, which (I hope) give you guys a good idea about my weight gain/ loss pattern over the years. As you can see from the photos, I've been struggling with my weight for quite some time. I will try to take some current "body shots" so that I can post them as well. I have gotten out of the habit of taking photos, haha.
Anyway, so far my week has been going well. Yesterday, I stayed within my DPs (give or take a point because of a few bites of some fried oyster) and I worked out for 40 minutes on the treadmill. I pushed myself and made it to 5.4 for about 4 minutes, which was awesome! I've never been able to go so fast on the treadmill...EVER. Tonight, I'm planning on getting some quality time on the elliptical, so that should be good.
On the food front, I've managed to make smarter food choices, which means I get to eat more! My menu today consisted of the following:
1/2 cup of canned pumpkin (0)!!
Black tea with splenda (0)
Mixed greens (0)
1/2 cup b. beans (1)
1/8 cup rf cheese (1)
2 ounces of chicken (2)
2 tbs dressing (2)
A toasted cinnamon raisin bagel thin on the side (1)
And that's it so far. I've only eaten 11 points and I feel completely satisfied. Now, if I recall, my chicken salad over the summer was roughly 12 points, and now I've managed to cut it down to 6, and it's still quite substantial.
Anyway, I have to get back to work. Happy Tuesday everyone!
