Total weight loss = 5 lbs
I wasn’t very strict on myself about carbs this past month. I cheated a few times a week and ate a little bit of rice, or ate a piece of bread, or had a cookie (or five). Still, I’m happy with this progress. The biggest change that I stuck with is my breakfast. I only eat sausage, egg, and salad. I no longer deviate on my breakfast. I have light lunches now, but occasionally I’ll have a taco salad if I’m super hungry, a Subway wrap, or a Burger King garden salad. I also no longer snack on sweets. My go-to snack is salami and string cheese. It fills me up and takes care of the salt cravings I get. For sweet cravings, I usually just drink a cup of coffee (it’s the pre-made Japanese kinds that contain a little bit of sugar) or drink straight tea. Also, I no longer binge on water, I just drink whenever I’m thirsty.
I feel a noticeable difference in my belly pooch. My pants feel a bit looser, but I still can’t quite make it into the next smaller size.
I’m so excited right now because I just bought my first ever Keto recipe book. It’s called “Keto Comfort Foods” by Maria Emmerich.
And, guess what?! My digital scale came in today! I have never been so excited to weigh myself in my entire life. LOL. Okay, so here’s what I clocked in at today. This marks as my official starting weight. I’m going to do these weigh-ins at the end of each month to not only check on my progress, but to also hold myself accountable.
I ended up being too full to eat the second boiled egg. Also, I’m sad because my scale hasn’t come in yet. Ugh. Hopefully it’ll be in tomorrow.
I’ve decided to embark on a ketogenic diet and today is day #1. I cooked myself sausages and eggs for breakfast and that was it, no toast or rice. My lunch was half of a Subway wrap. Since I have quite a sweet tooth, I decided to try out darker chocolates as a replacement for my chocolate needs. I wanted to try the 90% one by Lindt but it was out of stock so I just went with these instead.
Henceforth, I’m going to try and eliminate as much carbs from my diet as possible. I’ll be converting all of my milk into soy or almond milk (for my lactose issues), and avoid sugar (except for the ones in these chocolates!). I’m now logging all of my food intake into MyFitnessPal.
I also ordered a digital scale so as soon as I get that in the mail next week, I’ll weigh myself and that will be my official starting weight. The last time I went to the doctor a month ago, I was 159lbs (I’m 5’3″).
My goal weight is 115lbs…. wish me luck.
