I lost all of my previous notes from the check-ins after week 8 . . so stand by while I get those at my next visit. Then I can clear up what has happened over the past 2 months. I think I’ve only been to 2 weigh-ins . . and it’s not because I’ve given up, it’s because I’ve slowed down on the program and began to add my own foods.
I should say that I am never really EXCLUSIVELY without Ideal Protein. I still have a shake a day, or a soup a day. At one of my check-ins, I saw 150, which was nice. My home scale these days says 147. I’m very very comfortable where I am. What’s funny is that I am still losing inches. Pants that I haven’t worn in YEARS, I am able to fit in. There was a time I could zip or button them, and that was pretty exciting, but now I have room left over. It’s remarkable.
When I do eat my own foods, I am more aware of how to prepare the meal, and more conscience of what I am getting – being sure to remain healthy. Lean meats and veggies are a huge part of my daily intake. I still don’t use sugar, but then again, I haven’t for over 10 years, so that’s no loss. I’ve never been big on soda or sweets, so I have a leg up in keeping this weight off.
I’ll go for a check-in soon, and am STILL wanting to get to the gym – I just really don’t have time. I’m told to make time, but that is impossible with my schedule. I’ve done little things . . like, I walk around with 2lb weights in each hand, I use an exercise ball and just bounce around, I go back and forth between studios all day . . so, I am getting some exercise.
Oh, and you wouldn’t believe the guns I have!
