7 weeks down

Well total weight loss for the first 7 weeks is 12.4 pounds and 21.5 inches! I wanted to do some new full body shots but I wasn't able to get any taken yet. I added a new head shot in the photos page. I can really tell the difference in my face now.  My appetite is next to nothing too. I never thought I would get to the point that I could forget to eat. Also, I can get by on a lot less food now. I used to feel unsatisfied after a small portion and now a large portion seems unimaginable. I use tiny plates to eat dinner on and that seems to be helping. I still fill the plate and I feel like I got a good sized meal in without overdoing it.
I am proud of my ability to ward off fast food and junk food also. The only fast food I have allowed myself to have is Subway since they have the healthy choices and nutrition counter right there. I have not had alcohol either, it just isn't worth it! I repeated phase 1 of the body revolution program and this is my last week of phase 1 (again) so I will be starting phase 2 and summer semester at ISU. It will be keeping me busy but the busier I am, the better I do. Less snacking and more movement.
This is also TOM's week to visit. I have not gained the water weight that I have in the past, so i am looking forward to starting Phase 2, I will most likely be repeating that phase as well, that will take me to the end of my summer semester. It works out perfectly with my schedule.

Finals week...

Well I have been a lump on a log this week as far as working out goes. Worked out 2 times this week and that is it. I have been studying for my final exam and writing papers. This weekend I am going to bite the bullet and do my measurements again.  I haven't done them in nearly 5 weeks, I hope to see the numbers go down. I hit a plateau for the last 3 weeks, no pounds lost. Well this week I jumped on the scale just to see where I was at since I have been slacking on my workouts, and I was down 4.4 pounds!! I have been sticking to my diet and my appetite has been nearly non existent.  I have been eating 2 scrambled eggs, with cheese, Canadian bacon and spinach mixed in for breakfast, some kind of salad for lunch, Greek yogurt for snack and protein and carrots for dinner. My water intake could be better too, still working on that one. I hope that I don't have a sudden gain on Sunday and gain the 4 lbs back.
TOM is coming to town soon, I was able to avoid the bloat last month and not gain anything. I hope to repeat that this month as well. I will post my results on Sunday, here's to hoping for LOW numbers! I will post new pics too, I haven't updated them in a while.
