I have literally been so busy, I didn't get a chance to write in my journal this week!! Let alone blog a post. Wow, I need to manage my time better, the older I get the less time I have in a day, what is going on with that? Do you feel that way too? Do tell! Tomorrow I will be weighing in again, so I will post again on Monday. Sunday, April 30, 2023, was a great weigh-in, I lost 3.3 lbs, which is so exciting, I am down to 285 lbs, and little by little it is going down. Yesterday was Cinco de Mayo, I hope you all had a nice one. Ours was excellent, we made soft tacos with Mr. Tortilla, multigrain tortillas with 2 net carbs and 35 calories each, and quite delicious, check them out if interested. We used ground turkey and the usual things such as tomatoes, onions, sour cream, romaine lettuce, and shredded mozzarella cheese, and I had 1 Continue Reading
Weigh-in #16 – Intermittent Fasting Works!
I have been so busy, that I completely forgot to post on Tuesday, which is when I am trying to post now. Okay, so as my title states, yes intermittent fasting does work. It did great this first week for my current weigh-in. I lost 3.9 lbs, I was very happy. I feel I can intermittently fast in the mornings, and then have lunch, and then dinner. Which keeps my calorie intake lower. This is what I will be doing from here on in. I think it was a great success, and I hope on Sunday, I have another successful weigh-in. I am so happy to see the number going down on the scale. So very happy. The intermittent fasting is paying off and is worth it. Now to just continue doing what I am doing. When I fast, by the end of dinner, I am less than 1000 calories, so I need to eat a little more during the day. Because eating more at night is not a Continue Reading
Weigh-in #15 – What Can I Say? It Happens!
It is Friday, and I haven't lately been posting this late in the week. On Sunday when I weighed in. I thought I did well that week, but apparently, from what was staring back at me on the scale, it wasn't as good as I thought. I lost a measly .2 lbs. Was I disappointed? Absolutely! I was crushed! I expected more than that. At first, I thought I had lost 2 lbs. My husband said the expression on my face said I was not happy with the weight loss. Then, I was instantly corrected by what my husband said. He said I lost .2 lbs. I thought, What??? No way! I was thinking that in my head. I instantly just got so bummed out. My husband looks at me, and tells me "Don't let this discourage you", I said, "It's not, it just disappointed me!" That is where I am. I've been bummed all week, which is why I am just posting this today. On Tuesday I Continue Reading
