So, I went to the nutritionist on Tuesday, consulted with my "life coach" as she calls herself and got on the plan. Basically I'm eating balanced meals and snacks throughout the day along with some vitamins. There's really no magic or trick to it. I've done this before. The difference, this time, is that I'm accountable to someone I don't know very well. THAT makes all the difference in the world. Any other time, when I was hungry late at night, I would have had a small snack or I would have cut corners somehow. But knowing that someone is going to be checking and weighing me in - I'm not going to cheat.
I did the plan on Wednesday and Thursday and went in this morning for my weigh in and for her to check my food journal. I had lost 4 pounds in two days - mostly water weight I imagine. So far it's very exciting and I feel better! Tonight was hard since I went to a birthday party and I couldn't have hardly anything there. But I know that good food decisions are a new part of my life. I won't feel deprived forever, I hope. I wasn't about to eat birthday cake knowing that I would have to weigh in again on Monday. Yes, I will be checking in 2-3 times per week = LOTS of accountability.
Total weight loss so far = 4 lbs.
Total weight loss to go = 28 lbs.
