Progress!! Finally! And the trials to get there.

Monday, May 21, 2012

The first few weeks was awful, I was tracking etc trying to be really on plan and the scales refused0 to move!! emoticon emoticon

I was EXPECTING that big initial weight loss, that was gonna spurn me on the track even more. But....2 weeks and nothing. What was happening, was I underestimating calories somewhere :(

So I had to have faith in the plan. Faith that keeping to the plan I would shift weight.

And finally...over the past few weeks I lost over 4lbs! (well 2.5kg in my metric). And I`m light enough for the decimal to go to 0.2 instead of 0.5 kg one my scales which I`m sure was not helping.

I`ve been making a ton of indian food, with lots of spices and legumes, and then I eat the left overs for the next 3 meals. This week I made indian style baked falafal:



Although this week I am going to be mega busy so I don`t know when I`m going to have time to even make stuff for left overs :( Maybe I should start cooking late at night for the next day.

Like I mean I can buy a sandwich or something from the convience store but I`m starting to find them so...unsatisfying now. Like it`s a 300cal sandwich but it`s gone within 2 mins. Oh well today I have left overs so I have made a lunch box of sour mango chickpeas, barely and brown rice and steamed broccoli. emoticon emoticon emoticon My cooking is way better than convenience store food! emoticon

    Awesome! good luck with your cooking! I agree that I get more value for my calories if I cook myself!
