I am doing well on the new diet. I have been very careful to follow the 1200 diet as closely as I can. With being on the fast, I can't have bread, meat or sweets. So for lunch today and yesterday, I had a Boca Burger (veggie patty) with a slice of Am cheese, a little mayo, some tomato and wrapped up in an iceberg lettuce leaf. I really like this. C3 and I had this for dinner on Monday and we both enjoyed it. I am having the left overs for lunch. The whole thing has about 188 calories, not bad for a lunch.
I had a bowl of oatmeal (brown sugar & maple flavor) late last night, I just wanted something warm and filling and I thought that was a good choice, but this morning I was up by just a little over a pound. I am now at 355.1 and yesterday I was at 353.9. The oatmeal? I know I shouldn't weigh every day but I just look so forward to seeing what progress I have made, but sometimes like today, it can be discouraging. I am not letting it bother me and I am not quitting this time. I just need to do like Allan says and "eat less and move more"!!
I wore my tennis shoes to work today so that I can walk up and down the block before I go home. I don't get up early enough in the am to do it anymore and when I get home, fix dinner, all I want to do is sit in front of the tv and veg out or get on the computer. So, I thought if I did it before I even left work...it would work. We'll see. I had also planned to take a lunch break and walk then, too, but it has been a busy day and I was unable to "clock out" for lunch.
