I'm definitely doing much better. Since my last doctor's appointment on Wednesday, I have lost 4 pounds! Woohoo! I've been eating only 3 small meals a day and that's about all I can handle. I had my first fill, and it seems to be successful so far. Next one is March 11th. It's a slow and steady race to get to goal, I know this.
Right now, I have gone through some phases of exhaustion and exhilaration. Friday I thought I was going to pass out at one point while walking the dogs. Then it started to rain, so I went into the bar. After a few minutes Jolie got me some juice and I felt better. When I got home, I felt so much better than I hopped on the elliptical for 15 minutes. Last night, I worked my abs and I can see a noticeable different because there are new stretch marks giving my waist some definition. That reminds me, I didn't take pictures this past Friday, so I should do that in the next few days.
At the farmer's market yesterday, I purchased heads of califlower, broccoli and some strawberries. I steamed the califlower and added two tablespoons of yogurt butter and two wedges of garlic and herb Laughing Cow Cheese then roughly mashed it. It's delicious. I steamed the broccoli to be eaten as florets, and then I cut the strawberries and marinated them in Blush Wine Vinegarette. I have a little two cup bowl of roast beef my mom made and some chicken salad I through together that I've been picking on. I eat about 2-3 tablespoons of meat and about 1/2 cup of veggies and I'm totally satisfied.
