Greetings blog friends!
In the above embedded YouTube video, I give an update on this Tuesday’s weigh-in results. It was not a banner week – my 0.2 lbs loss (from 194.2 to 194.0 lbs) is likely a direct result of my eating this past week. My calories stretched a little higher than normal, fueled in part by cravings likely caused by an increase in my sugar intake. I’m working through it, though, and employing simple strategies in order to get back to a good, even-keeled chemical balance (like stop eating so much damned froyo, yo!).
I also recounted the details of my final dietician appointment on the 20/20 Lifestyles program. Definitely a bummer to be losing these biweekly check-ins and not enjoy Erika’s helpful feedback, but I know she’s always at the other end of an email – and of course she’s a regular contributor to their blog, which I’ll be following. I followed that appointment with a clothes shopping trip (I had some “Real Women Dollars” to make proper use of) and a walk at nearby Marymoor Park. And I took pictures!
I gab on and on about more subjects in the video, so I encourage you to go watch it in all its sitcom-length glory! For now I’ll leave you with a new feature I’m trying to get myself to actually implement, and that’s keeping you all updated on what I eat. I know that I love seeing what other people are eating on their respective weight loss journeys, plus it might be fun/helpful in the future to be able to go back and see a (hopefully) daily visual log of what I stuck in my craw.
Here’s something from last week, June 7th, 2014:
And here’s the photo from Wednesday, June 11th, 2014:
So yeah, I’m definitely gonna try to make this a “thing” (presuming I can remember to photograph everything I eat), and upload it here and to Instagram on a daily basis. As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Comments and shares are always encouraged!
OH! And PS – In my last photo you can see my dessert, which was a Mint Chocolate Chip Frozen Greek Yogurt Bar made by a company called Yasso. All I can say is: THIS WAS AMAZING! I tried it for the first time last night and was truly impressed by the taste, texture, and nutritional information. It’s 100 calories per bar, with all natural ingredients (no artificial sweeteners), 6g of protein, only 1.5g of fat and a reasonable 13g of sugar, with live cultures and everything. As frozen novelties go, this one seems pretty solid. They have a wide variety of flavor options so I encourage you to seek it out at your local stores! /End of unsolicited plug!
