Tuesday/Wednesday Diet Day!

Last Weigh In on 2/07/12: 173.8 lbs
Current Weight on 2/14/12: 172.00 lbs
Pounds Lost in Wk’s Time:  1.8 lbs
Total Weight Loss since 1/31/12: 2.8 lbs

Wohoo!! Almost 3 lbs lost in 2 weeks!!! Yeah! This feels like this is going to be painfully slow but in all honestly I'm starting to see results. One pair of jeans I have is a lil looser, I've had to tighten the string on my pajama bottoms, and lil changes are starting to come naturally to me. A feel a lil weird having mesauring cups at my desk but I have cut so many calories by actually paying attention to portion size that it's all worth it.

I will be doing a post later this week on my lil switches I've done over the past 2 weeks. I haven't been following any real defined diet, except stealing lil excerpts from this book here & this site there. What it's boiling down to is serving sizes....paying attention to that & exercising...

Lil Moves to Keep this Diet Up & Running…

No Elevators. I work on the 2nd Floor of my office building. There is no reason for me to be taking the elevator. Yes, the elevators have motion sensors so they kindly open up as I enter the building, but I’ve been passing on the quick lift.

Vegetable-Only Sushi. I am very lucky to have a Shop Rite Supermarket 2 minutes from my home that prepares fresh sushi. I used to be obsessed w/ Shrimp Tempura Roll. Seafood is allowed on a lot of diets but the deep fried tempura part is definitely not. I love the vegetable roll w/ carrots, cucumber, & avocado wrapped up w/ a small amount of rice. I love it!
Side Note: Jonah Hill, the actor, contributes a lot of weight loss to switching to sushi.

Blogs: Fellow Bloggers: Hollie@ And Baby Makes Three & WindshieldDiaries have been doing two different cleanses & reading about their progress is very motivating to me.Take a look at their blogs for extra motivation! =)

Free-Weights: Target, especially, has a large selection of different weights & types inexpensively. Instead of sitting on the couch doing nothing while I watch TV I’ve been lifting simple 2-2 lb weights & 2 – 3 lb weights.Also CJ has been staying over a lot lately so while he has been doing his morning routine in the bathroom I've been working out a lil bit w/ some simple stretches and kicks...I love doing kicks...

 I kow I'm describing lil switches and changes I've been doing, but I don't know. I feel like I need to make this journey a lil more real for the reader. I could take a picture each week of the scale reading or *GASP* take a picture each week of my hopefully shrinking tummy...hmmm....

Any Suggestions on how to make this Journey more real for all you guys?


  1. There is nothing wrong with real sushi. It's not always fried.

    1. True!! But I always ate the Shrimp Tempura roll. The tempura batter was not good for me! =)

  2. Good ideas -- i need to start exercising too!

  3. Congrats on the weight loss. I love that you are doing "little changes" to see results. Slow and steady wins the race!

  4. I need get back on my exercise routine! Thanks for the motivation!

  5. Love these little tips. Mine is I always try to walk if I can - I don't drive but use public transport a lot . . . if I can walk though I will try and leave that little bit earlier so i can do so. Keeping a food diary is also a good idea . . . about ten years ago I lost two stone (28 pounds)and part of it was always being aware of what I ate.

  6. You go girl! I'm so happy that you have a goal and you're sticking to it. That's awesome! PS.. I love Hollie and I'm so impressed with her also.

  7. You're doing great! The best feeling in the world is putting on a pair of jeans that were a little too tight, and having them zip up loosely! :)
