Weigh-In Wednesday-Just as I Suspected

After semi taking the week off plan to travel and basically just east like shit, I gained 1.2 lbs.  I'm not surprised and kind of relieved that it wasn't higher.

On to this week.  I am going to mix it up a little and go for a BIG loss next week. My plan:

  • Eat Jenny meals 3 times per day
  • Eat 1-2 vegetable servings per day depending on meals and volumizing
  • Limit to 1 fruit per day (bananas equal 2 fruits)
  • Do not eat "free foods"
  • Eat my salad with dinner most days (to keep me filled up at night)
  • Limit to 1 "milk" serving per day
  • Do not eat Jenny Craig desserts, instead eat lower calorie and more filling 65 calorie pudding cup and 100 calorie Slim Fast bar or calorie pack cookies and save them for late night when my cravings kick in
  • Drown myself in water
  • Exercise a minimum of 4 times for as long as I can stand it (taking Fibro pain into account)
 So I'm feeling like I can do this with the above strategy.  The only speed bump on this week's horizon is the hubby's birthday on Monday and going out to dinner.  I plan to make smart choices.

What are your weight loss/fitness goals for the week?  Do you have any tips to share with me?

That sounds like an awesome strategy. I think I read somewhere that consuming one gram of fiber helps eliminate 7 calories. So, I guess more fiber is always a good idea.

I think you need to eat your free foods, for sure. Vegetables are something that have lots of water and vitamins, so you need to get them in!

The rest of your plan sounds great!

Sounds like you know what you need to do to get back on track.

My weight loss goals for the week? Get back into the routine of losing and not maintaining, it's been difficult but I think I've got it out of my system and I'm ready to hunker down and do the work. We'll see!

Good luck!

So inspiring that your starting out with a plan. I was thinking that I was going to keep trying what hasn't worked (unfortunately not kidding), but after reading this, I'm going to rethink things. Thank you.

I think your goals are great! Print them out and post them on the fridge!!

My goals for the week: Try to get in a few days of cardio in the morning and yoga in the afternoon.
Meditate first thing in the morning!

I am sorry-but glad you are not getting discouraged!

I plan to keep moving my ass. I have some jeans I want to fit in COMFORTABLY in a little over 2 weeks.

It drives me crazy when there are speed bumps in my eating plan. Especially when I know others are sticking to the healthy way and I am stuffing my face.

Seems to me that is a pretty small gain for traveling. I bet it comes off fast!
