Since I'm blogging most of the same thing, I'm going to just make this a general journal. In my siggie, is a link to my blog for those who want to follow it that way. You can either subscribe via the RSS symbol or via Blogger.com
Here's what I wrote for today. I'll try to update this weekly to talk about my weigh-in's and food. :)
I'm going to track my JC journey here. I'll try to post at least once a week on my weigh-in days to keep you updated on my weight progress. Otherwise, it could get old hearing about what I'm eating 6 times a day. I'll probably write more about my struggles, hurdles, and triumphs. With that.....
I weighed in at 179.6 yesterday at JC. My goal weight is 125 (or less, I'd like less, but 125 is a great place to be). My halfway point is 152. At the halfway mark, you start to ween yourself off the JC food. I may ask to get down to 140-145 before that, since at 152 that's where I was and still struggling. I'd like to pass that point first, THEN start my maintenance. We'll see though.
Onto yesterday's recap:
Well, I have to admit, the food is actually pretty good. I'm rating all the different things as I eat them, and I'm surprised at how tasty they really are. Okay, the few things I ate. I had a bad case of acid reflux yesterday and I don't know if it's from the food, or if it was a bad day. Usually, if I take a Prilosec, I'm okay, but not yesterday. Augh. It was horrible.
My morning breakfast was an instant oatmeal (maple flavored). Just add water and go. I was supposed to add a fruit to it, but I didn't have any food yet, so I ate that. It reminds me of the Quaker Oats instant oatmeal that I eat, so no biggie.
Snacks can be one of their "anytime" bars or 8oz nonfat yogurt. I chose the yogurt. Although, I am eating Yoplait, I wonder if it was supposed to be plain. Oops.
Lunch was a Southwestern Burrito in a wheat tortilla. It was yummy! Seriously, I didn't think it'd be that good. I was surprised.
Snack 2 was a small smores bar. I was thinking it was going to be like one of those dry bleah protein bars. Actually, it had a nougat filling and was crispy and yummy. Again, small, but not bad at all.
Dinner was penne pasta. This was the first dish that I felt was okay. Not bad, not great. Since I forgot my paper at home, I couldn't recall what I was supposed to eat it with (just a spinach salad), so I had a garden salad. I need to figure out what portions I'm supposed to eat with the salads.
Snack 3 was to be a fruit, but because I had agility, I skipped it and went to bed.
Overall, not bad. When I started to feel hungry it was snack time. I went shopping at lunch to get some fruits and veggies. $30, not bad. So far, the weeks food is about $125. A bit high, but considering all that I'm eating, I don't think it's that bad and again, this is more about convenience and portions.
Now, to get the exercise back in. They're suggesting 30 mins of something you enjoy, at a moderate level, three times a week. I think I will start with that. Like many of you have said, too many changes all at once isn't good.
