I'm Kate and I am looking for any way to lose weight. I have figured out over the past couples of weeks that my biggest issue is that I love the convenience of going through that drive through! Even when I am exercising regularly, I wasn't losing any weight, and I had myself convinced that I was working out so I HAD to be losing weight, never did I give a second thought that I ate a 1,400 dinner at McDonalds, forgot breakfast, and ate a pizza roll for lunch.
SOOOO I started cooking meals at my house. I live with my boyfriend but he never eats at home (he manages a restaurant), so basically I thought it was a waste to cook for one. So I figured out a way around that, I bought great tupperware, and started making meals that would make four servings, 3 for the fridge and 1 to eat right away. So on days when I don't want to cook I have a wide variety of foods to chose from in the fridge. And when I have extra time in a day I cook (the other day I made a chicken meal, homemade chicken noodle soup, and chocolate chip cookies enriched with fiber).
I wanted to join this challenge because since I have been cooking at home I have started to see the weight come off and I feel so much better during the day. I lost 2 pounds last week which has NEVER happened to me. I'm still very new to cooking and I will readily admit not everything I have cooked is as healthy as it could be, hence this challenge.
I'm a recovering cancer patient who needs to lose 60 pounds as well as help my body recover from treatment, so here's to hoping this challenge will kick my butt into gear!
