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.

  1. When you are working on your weight loss proper exercises are as important as proper nutrition. I have stumbled upon a curious article providing the analysis, conducted by nutrition scientists, on which elements are essential for getting great shape and how they work - Very interesting information for all athletes.
