Well... things have still been good. I lost 1.5 lbs this past week, bringing me down to 188.5 lbs... into the 80's! YAY! I don't know where the heck the 90's went, but I'm now smaller than I was when we moved here almost 4 years ago & am almost as small as I was when Alex & I got married! I've been trying on clothes from that time & the pants are fine...but man, the shirts are soooo short! I have to donate them all. I can't believe I wore shirts that short! (Not immodest short, of course, but the styles are just a lot longer now)
So I am a little disappointed by the 1.5 lbs, because I had been hoping for more. Last week was the first 3x/day workouts & I was SUPER diligent about my eating. So when I saw 1. lbs I was a little let down, but Jill & I reviewed my eating for the week & a lot of nights I was just eating sauteed spinach with shrimp & no carbs & I skipped a few of the Jenny Craig snacks (I gave my cheesecake to Alex) & she estimates I was eating less than 1,000 calories per day, which sabotaged my plans for big weight loss. I had been thinking "the less the better", especially if I was burning so many calories, but I guess I was into "fat storage" mode... So this week I'm going to eat everything on my Jenny Craig menu (knowing that it will keep me at a healthy 1,200 calories per day) & nothing more.
My first weigh in for the Biggest Loser competition is later on today, so we'll see how that goes... I'll add to this post with the results later!
