emoticon - 61 minutes (still reading and working it)

Completed Day #2 of my eating plan. Yet again I had fast food and went over about 100 calories yesterday. Running late from the gym and trying to make it to church on time.

I have got to do better planning next week. I realized I missed a few items on my menu for the week. Then there is the cooking of the meat for lunch and dinner. This morning I got up 20 minutes earlier to prepare my meals for today.

I sure hope that this few days of change will make a dent in the scale tomorrow. Well not literally a dent... but move me downward and not upward or staying the same.

Dr. Ian Smith has a new book coming out at the end of this month, just in time for New Year's resolutions. Apparently, he's sharing the plan on his Facebook page. I have read testimonies and started following him on Twitter. I think in this book he shares a workout plan. But I haven't checked it out on FB yet. The book cover say 6 weeks, 4 inches, 2 sizes.

The meal plan I'm using now is from his 50 million pound challenge. The reason I like it --- is that it runs for 30 days and every meal is planned out for me (I need that). The food is typical everyday food. Sandwiches, eggs, cereal, chicken, fish, veggies... and each meal is around 300 or so calories. You get 6 meals per day (4 meals and 2 snacks) every 2-3 hours. It does not specify low fat, sugar-free, this brand or that brand. It's portion control and lean meats, vegetables and fruit.

I've done this before and had great results for the 30 days. If I recall correctly I lost 8-12#s. I didn't continue so.... :) There's a long list of snack ideas and I have the option of switching things up and not getting bored with my eating. The other plus is that if I eat out - I can adapt what I should be having when I'm being obedient that is....

    emoticon You have a great plan and the small bump in the road will not hold you back. I like how organised and planned out you are. Sometimes adjusting calories helps when all we do is maintain or gain.

    emoticon for reading my blog! And the good information on the skin. Another Sparker commented that the she heard the skin should adjust eventually to the weight loss. I do strength training with my workouts so hopefully she's right. I'm not even thinking about surgery at all. BUT thank God for progress and motivators as yourself!!! Have a Prosperous December!!!
