Yay this week was a success!

Okay so yay this week was a success.  Last week I ended at 213.2 and now yesterday I weighed in at 208.2 :) woooooohooo!!!  That's five whole pounds.  I am super excited.  Let's see what I can do this week.

DOWN 5 lbs.!!!!!! (I am sooooo doing my happy dance)

You know what I found helpful is to buy those little individual Tupperware that have divided slots for like a meat or salad, and a veggie.  I usually pack my leftovers for lunch the next day at the office and it works perfect! :)

Some examples of what I ate are as follows:

Most mornings I just had 2 pieces of Healthy Life Toast with 16g for two slices and no sugars with 2 tbsp of Jif Peanut butter  (So this meal is 23g carbs/2g sugars)
Weekends I make a more plentiful breakfast consisting of eggs, ready to serve sausage (make sure its not the maple syrup one because to much sugar, I just use Jimmy Dean Heat N Serve original)  Bacon, and again Healthy life toast.

If I don't have leftover from dinner, then I usually mix up some tuna or chicken salad with mayo, onion, and celery and put on top of either my own salad or a Wendy's side or Cesar salad.  Or I have a low carb wrap (which I found one called OLE Xtreme Wellness only 9g carb, 5g fiber, 0 sugar per tortilla and put salami & cheese or another type of lunch meat.

Usually I have one fresh veggie, like sauteed zucchini with a tiny bit of soy sauce to make it taste super yummy, a salad (spring mix lettuce is the best), and chicken or fish.  I try to vary this up as much as I can, but the simpler the better, because then I think the more extravagant of the meal we will tend to become lazy and not stick to it.  At least I know that is how I am.

Let me reccommend some helpful sites.

Fat Secret is good to make a profile page on and track your food, because it tracks your nutrients where most only track calories.  Also it has tons of recipes people have submitted for the Belly Fat Cure.  Check it out.  I have used quite a bit of yummy recipes from there. : )

This is another helpful blog, don't know if you all are familiar with or not.  Its mainly only low carb but in place of sugars where they say add, we can always use truvia or one of our known sweeteners we are allowed.  Has anyone ever heard of Oopsie bread :)  Try the recipe:   http://blog.yourlighterside.com/2008/01/sailor-scouts-make-my-revol-oopsie.html 


  1. Congratulations!!! I'm doing the happy dance with you. :D

  2. That is amazing!! We are all rejoicing with you; I know you were frustrated the weight wasn't coming off, but LOOK! It DID!! Woo-Hoo!!

  3. Yes woohoo!! Weeks like this is what keeps me going for the next week (not cheating) so I can see what lose I can achieve the next time. Its exciting when you can see results. But I know as I get closer to my goal I will see it slow down, but never give up is the attitude we all must have. :)

  4. Wow Congrats on the weight loss. I am a friend of yours on fat secret as well. I am still trying to figure everything out on that website. Keep up the great work. I am hoping for a good week too.

  5. Yes, I believe I saw your buddy request yesterday. :) If you have any questions, just let me know and I will try to help ya out. You are welcome to email me whenever. lindsaymtome@hotmail.com Basically I just entered the foods I eat each day to track what I am eating and I have found I stick to my diet better this way, plus as buddies we can share what we eat by looking at our Diet Calendar. :)
