My Weight Loss Progress...
So.. I've been dieting for the past few weeks. I am a size 5, but I have gained a little weight around my stomach from just being a PIG for the past few years!!! I have never really watched what I ate because I have been skinny my whole life. If anything, I was always trying to GAIN weight!!
So.... I've been really watching my calorie intake. I started at 128 lbs. I've lost 4 lbs so far. (I haven't weighed myself in a week, because I have cheated a little on my diet!!) I had a Chocolate Wave dessert at Red Lobster. Well.... I had NO IDEA how many calories were in that thing!!! 1,490 to be exact. At least I didn't eat the whole thing in one day, but still!! Well, I also ate two cheddar bay biscuits. They are 150 calories a piece. I also had a salad and a broiled seafood platter. The platter was 325 calories. When you see how many calories a certain food is, it definitely makes you reluctant to slip up! LOL
In light of me "falling off the wagon", I have decided not to weigh myself again until next week. I have made other significant dietary changes too. I now drink soy milk, and what's weird is I actually like it. I want to try almond and rice milk too. I have cut out fried foods, sodas and fruit drinks. Now I drink mostly water or real juice. I was never a big beef eater, but I have also cut down on chicken. When I do eat fish, I don't eat a lot of it, and I eat more vegetables. I read somewhere that you should always eat smaller portions and leave something on your plate each time. I try not to eat over 1300 calories per day. This had been easy for me prior to the Red Lobster visit.
