This week


Tuesday, April 30, 2013

I went to my Dr. on Monday, and hadn't lost one pound since my last visit 4 weeks ago. This is frustrating to me, because I had started the C25k, and made it to the third week (knees couldn't handle it), and have been pretty good with my food.

I do still have many struggle moments, like the cheesecake I had on Saturday, and the chicago style stuffed pizza I had on Sunday. I know these things are what is blocking me. My friend Amy told me about the 17 Day Diet, and I really like the premise of it - it's 4 different cycles of 17 days each. The first cycle is bascially no carbs except fruit. And each one after adds a little more back in. I think this is what I need to to do to kick the bad carb habit, and to kickstart my body into responding. I have been working at this since April of last year (2012) and have only lost about 17 lbs.

This diet, which really just a structured healthy eating plan, I think will really work for me, because it's only for 17 days! I can do anything for 17 days, that's not long at all. Not even 3 weeks. That just makes it seem so much more attainable.

Anyway, I am feeling really motivated! My dr. did prescribe me Adipex, which has worked for me in the past, when I previously was on sparkpeople. I followed the meal plans and walked, and lost 50 lbs. My mistake was not having a plan for maintenance. I know now I have to keep doing this - logging, meal plans, etc. forever. It's not a bad thing. It's just what I have to do, to be healthy.

I took two walks today, I am hoping I can keep this up. My goal is to walk at least once per day, for at least 20 minutes. The 17 dd recommends 2 "17 minute" walks per day, hey, I can do that! Although it is easier to just do 20, cause I'm OCD like that and have to round up to an even number.
