On May 28th, I decided to follow my own advice and start my weight loss program
over. This time, I am following my own weight loss program. I’ve bought so many
weight loss books and have never been able to follow any of them to the tee.
So, I’m doing as Frank Sinatra would say, “My Way.”
What I Changed in My Diet
I’ve lost ten pounds since May 28th. These are the changes I’ve made this past
month to incur my weight loss:
•Breakfast: I don’t like breakfast and that’s all there is to it. I quit eating
oatmeal,grapefruit, and cereal in the morning.I drink my coffee, green tea,and
•Lunch & Dinner: I’ve started making my main meal at lunch time instead of the
evening as I had done in the past. I now eat salad 4/5 times a week. I am now
eating fish 2/3 times a week.
•Snacks: For a snack in the evening, I’ve been eating the apple and cinnamon
quaker little rice cakes.
•Liquids: I’ve traded my diet coke in for plain old water.
Mistakes I Have Made
I can’t say I’ve been perfect. We have gone out to eat a few times and I’ve
made bad food choices. I’m not beating myself up over it. I not throwing in
the towel. Tomorrow is always another day.
I must say, I think the most important thing I’m doing, is faithfully
documenting everything I eat and drink. I’ve been weighing myself twice a
week and tracking my weight loss in the same notebook as my food and drink
intake. This way I can compare the weeks with what I’ve ate.
Do What Works for You!
I’m sure many will disagree with my choice of weight loss…but the important
thing, it works for me.
