1st BLC finished

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

I lost 1.3 lbs this week for a total of 6.4 lbs lost for the whole challenge.
My reflection is in noticing that I can exercise till the cows come home, but if I eat like a cow, I will not lose weight. emoticon I found it very difficult to stay w/in my calorie range. I was trying to stick w/our nutritionist's guidelines of 1 palmsize of protein, 1 serving of vegetables & 1 serving of beans per meal & having vegetables emoticon as my snacks. I have pretty much given up pop althogether & drink water, water, water..usually 12-15 glasses a day emoticon
My working out in the morning has become part of my morning routine. emoticon ..I just wish that was enough because I still don't feel ready to forever give up sugar. emoticon That seems to be my downfall, and I don't eat alot at all, but did you know 1 single poptart has 200 calories? Blows my day if i have one.
This was my first BLC & it was fun, but it put me on the computer way too much & computers & I don't get along well so i will be taking a break from it for a while. But my workouts will continue & I will continue to fight my addiction to sugar. emoticon

    I'm glad you're losing weight successfully. It has been my experience that I can't "taper down" - but if you just stop you eventually get used to the new situation. That was the only way I could quit smoking - after 30 years.
