So here was the breakdown for today:
I weighed myself this morning for the first time in a few weeks and was actually 3 pounds lighter than I thought. So my goal is now to lose 15 pounds by the end of October. Before the holidays. haha. From here on out I'm only weighing myself once a week. It changed my calorie intake down a few so my daily allotment is now 1,193.
Breakfast: 200 calories
Same as yesterday - cereal, milk, and strawberries
Lunch: 400 calories
Same as yesterday just more because I was starving - tomato, spinach, and mozz salad with chicken
Dinner: 220 calories
Snacks - roughly 320 calories
1/2 cup cottage cheese
Cantaloupe - 1/2 cup
1 Graham cracker
yoplait light yogurt
So I ate a lot of little snacks today and it was tough. I felt starving before meals. I'm not sure if it's my body getting used to all of this or what. I took 2- 25 minute walks today as well so that helped because I added on some calories for the walks.
Oh and yesterday I totally forgot to credit my wonderful friend, Rebecca for motivating me because she's recently lost quite a bit of weight and keeps on going and looks AMAZING. It's seriously inspirational and I am in awe of her dedication and perseverance through some tough hurdles. She taught me how to make Turkey Loaf last week and told me what she eats which has REALLY guided my menu for this first week. So, thank you Rebecca!! I need more recipes ;)
